Episode Quotes

Scully: I miss my home chair.
Rosa: You miss a chair?

Captain Holt: And I win again. Which is not surprising, given how you are both terrible. You don't even know the terminology.
Jake: What are you talking about? "Hit me."
Captain Holt: That is blackjack.
Jake: Snake-eyes.
Captain Holt: Craps.
Jake: Go Fish.
Captain Holt: And I believe that is Go Fish.

Captain Holt: Yes, yes, come to papa. Raise it a grand! Call. Raise. A pair of candy canes. I'm all in, baby.
Jake: What are you doing, sir?
Captain Holt: Working the case. Sharpening my poker skills for Valdano.
Jake: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, and why are you watching this children's beauty pageant?
Captain Holt: For fun, obviously. No, Jayla, don't drop the baton. No, I had so much riding on you!

Captain Holt: Hot damn! Four queens. I call this hand the Golden Girls.

Captain Holt: Now go get Valdano before you blow your covers. I'm off duty; what I do on my own time is my own business. Unlike you two who are still on the clock and are now being bad cops.
Jake: Wow, listen to you talking all smooth. But you can't fool us, sir. You might as well face it. You're addicted to math. Robert Palmer.
