Episode Quotes

Rosa: I've never met anyone who cares so much about stupid bureaucracy.
Amy: Bureaucracy is not stupid. It's elegant. It's a beautiful puzzle waiting to be cracked. Every rule, every form has its purpose. It all fits together, and when the puzzle is solved and you take a step back and see the big picture, it's like staring into the face of God.

Seamus Murphy: You ever want to do business again, my door is always open.
Captain Holt: Well, you should close it, lest you get moths. Good day.

Captain Holt: Seamus Murphy.
Seamus Murphy: That's right. Remember how I saved your detectives from prison in exchange for a favor? The time has come-
Captain Holt: Wait. This isn't my order.
Seamus Murphy: What?
Captain Holt: This is an omelet. I only eat omelets on vacation.

Captain Holt: He only wants to use the block party as a cover for something criminal: a robbery, a murder, or something worse.
Jake: You don't know that for sure, and that's your loophole.
Captain Holt: I don't believe in loopholes.
Jake: What? Loopholes are the best. Remember that time when Pancake Palace had that all-you-can-eat deal, but they didn't set a time limit? I ate pancakes for a week for $3.99. All I had to do was sleep there and never shower.
Scully: What? Thanks for the invite, friend.

Captain Holt: Well, how are you gonna find out what his real plan is? He's smart, and he doesn't talk to anyone but his family.
Jake: I was worried about that, too, but that's when I remembered: "The Godfather."
Charles: The Diane Keaton movie.
Jake: No one refers to it as that, but Charles is right, she is in it.
