Episode Quotes

Amy: He's a ruthless killer who built a meth empire. We were tracking him for weeks, but he kept getting away.
Rosa: Finally, we cornered him in a warehouse. Every exit was covered and he just vanished. Then he sent us a postcard from Paraguay a year later just to taunt us. It was diabolical.
Amy: Yeah, it was full of grammar errors and other taunts that normal people care about.

Olivia Crawford: I'm sorry to barge in like this, but I have a source on the nominating committee. They're making their recommendation to the mayor at the end of next week, and it seems that John Kelly is going to beat out both of us.
Gina: Big shocker. The straight white man wins again.
Olivia Crawford: Exactly.
Captain Holt: Amen.
Charles: That was my complaint about Owen winning "Top Chef Junior," and you guys all acted like I was crazy.

[Reading the message left on the wall by Mindar: "Diaz and Santiago, your to late!"]
Rosa: Nope, he remembered.
Amy: And he used the wrong "you're" and the wrong "too"! Son of a bitch!

Sergeant Jeffords: Jake, you gotta pick a napkin.
Jake: The binder said they should be beige. I didn't realize there'd be 45 different shades. "Chanterelle," "desert whimsy," "filbert husk"? Words have no more meaning, Terry.

Charles: Well, Gina and I have been discussing the situation and we think we know what you need to do.
Captain Holt: Oh? What is that?
Gina: Whisper campaign.
Charles: It's the best way to bring down an enemy if you don't wanna get your hands dirty. How do you think I stole the cheese club presidency away from Bruce?
Gina: Whisper.
Charles: I heard he thought camembert was goat cheese.
Gina: And how do you think I got Janet and her horrible daughter Dakota to drop out of baby bongos class?
Charles: Whispers.
Gina: I heard Dakota has foot in mouth disease.
Charles: Sir, you have to give us permission to do this. Weaponize our sweet little mouths.
Gina: Ugh, how are we on the same side of this?
