Episode Quotes

Charles: [attempting to impersonate Holt eating a marshmallow] Ooh, mm-hmm, mm-hmm-hmm-hmm!
Jake: That's your Holt impression?
Charles: I can hear him doing that.

Captain Holt: What's going on here? What are you doing?
Jake: Captain, hey, nothing, just eating some marshmallows. Care for one?
Captain Holt: Marshed-mallow. Hmm. Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm!
Charles: [laughing] I knew it!

Captain Holt: That concludes our briefing. And now, on a personal note, I have some thoughts about Beyonce's "Lemonade" I'd like to share.
Jake: Oh, my God, sir, as much as I want to hear those thoughts, and it is so, so much, I think we should probably let Amy speak. [Amy is stood right next to Holt, facing him sideways, clutching a folder]

Amy: Okay, here's everyone's itineraries for Thanksgiving at my place. I know a lot of your families are out of town, and you just want to relax, but I think we'll all enjoy ourselves more if we rigidly stick to the schedule.
Sergeant Jeffords: Whoa, did you assign us individual bathroom break times?
Amy: Keep asking questions about it, Sarge, and your slot is after Scully's.
Sergeant Jeffords: All right, Santiago, damn. It's your toilet.

Jake: Well, I am ready for this. I pulled a full Amy and researched the crap out of him. Made this sweet binder. Just a couple of factoids about Victor: He's an ex-cop, 65 years old, married for 36 years, Cuban, his favorite food, Flavor First beefy dog food. Wait, no, sorry. That's his dog's favorite food.
His favorite food is corn. Makes more sense. Dog food's not in the name.
