Episode Quotes

Jake: Oink, oink. Good morning, sir. Your expression is inscrutable as always.
Captain Holt: And yours is extremely scrutable. You want something. A video game, perhaps? Or a fidget spinner?
Jake: I do want both of those things, but that's not why I'm here.

Jake: Look, I'm ready. I'm the same old Jake.
Captain Holt: I don't know why you have an issue with this. Rosa was happy to comply.
Jake: So, what, now I'm just supposed to do anything that Rosa does? I mean, what if she jumped off a cliff?
Captain Holt: If Rosa were to jump off a cliff, she would've done her due diligence regarding the height of the cliff, the depth of the water, and the angle of entry, so yes. If you see Rosa jump off a cliff, by all means, jump off a cliff.
Jake: You jump off a cliff.
Captain Holt: Gladly. Provided Rosa did first.

Jake: Guess what I'm holding behind my back?
Captain Holt: Before we begin, what are the parameters of the guessing game? How many guesses do I get? Is there a time limit?
Jake: Forget it. You ruin everything. It's the police code and ethics manual.
Chapter four. Page 83.
Captain Holt: You should not have told me. I never would've guessed it. Now I've won.

Rosa: And now I don't know what to do.
Amy: I think you do know what to do.
Rosa: Thanks, Amy. (leaves the room)
Amy: I have no idea what she's gonna do but that's the safest way to give Rosa advice.
Sergeant Jeffords: Yep.

Captain Holt: When you demanded to be put back on the field, I worried that you were being flippant about your time in prison. I thought you would be reckless, but I was wrong. Prison has made you more cautious.
Jake: Yeah, but what if I'm too cautious now? I mean, I used to see everything as black and white, and now, it's looking real gray to me.
Captain Holt: I wish every cop had a voice in their head asking, what if he's innocent? You see it as weakness, but it means you're growing.It makes you a better detective. So, you passed your evaluation. You can go back in the field.
