Chasing Amy

Chasing Amy
Season 4, Episode 18 - Aired May 9, 2017

The precinct packs up and heads to the Tri-State Police Officers' annual Cop-Con, which is usually the Nine-Nine's excuse for a big annual party. But the squad's fun is threatened this year when Holt asks them to be on their best behavior. Then, Amy suddenly vanishes hours before taking the Sergeant Exam, and it's up to Jake and Rosa to find her before it's too late.

Quote from Jake

Charles: Jake, what's going on? Why is Amy's hair like that?
Jake: Oh, she obsessively braids her hair when she's nervous, and she's super nervous 'cause she's taking the sergeant's exam today.
Charles: But Amy loves tests.
Jake: Not this one. It's always been her plan to be the youngest captain in the history of the NYPD, but if she doesn't pass this exam, she's gonna have to wait another three years to take it again, and that'll disrupt her entire life calendar.
Charles: Is that a real thing?
Jake: It hangs over our bed.

Quote from Jake

Amy: No, practice exams are worthless. The testing conditions are way too pristine. There's nothing to distract you. I mean, look around. A child could pass the frickin' MCAT in here.
Jake: I knew you would say that, which is why I've asked these officers to do their paperwork in here while you take the test. He writes way too loudly.
She's always yawning. He has a gross cold. IBS, IBS. She has a weird arm-stretching thing. IBS, IBS, and Hitchcock and Scully with two hours worth of potato chips.
Amy: Oh, my God, it's gonna be crinkle-city.
Hitchcock: Jake said we get to eat with our mouths open.
Scully: [chuckles] What a day!

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: Sir, a witness just came in with her child. While she was being interviewed, I took the kid to the soft room, and the toy situation in there is kind of bleak.
Captain Holt: Is this your opinion or the child's opinion?
Sergeant Jeffords: It's mine.
Captain Holt: Trick question. Any opinion about toys is a child's opinion.

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: Um, I was thinking we could liven things up in there. Maybe add a model train? I used to love 'em when I was a kid.
Captain Holt: I was also a model train enthusiast as a child. Those miniature tracks provided me with some of my happiest memories.
[cut to a young Raymond Holt playing with his train set:]
Captain Holt: All aboard! The train will be departing in 45 minutes. [clock ticking]

Quote from Gina

Charles: Don't get jealous. She left you something too.
Gina: Oh, that's so nice of her. And it's a big jar of brown sludge that smells like death.
Charles: Oh, you got the mother dough!
Gina: Ugh! Did this come out of her? Charles, how grossed out should I be right now?

Quote from Gina

Charles: No, that's the Boyle family sourdough starter. It's fed us for 140 years. The bread it births is succulent and firm. Tang for days.
Gina: I hate so many of the words you just used.

Quote from Charles

Gina: Charles, if it's so great, why would she give it to me? I barely knew her.
Charles: You know what, she probably got you confused with my cousin Tina. He was always her favorite.
Gina: Tina is a boy's name?
Charles: Yeah, short for Christina.
Gina: Mm.

Quote from Rosa

Rosa: What are you looking all wistful about?
Jake: Just thinking, about relationships and love, and how I'm way better at them than I thought I'd be. Should I do a TED Talk on it?
Rosa: Doesn't seem any dumber than all the other TED Talks.

Quote from Hitchcock

Jake: Amy's not in the break room.
Rosa: Or the evidence room.
Hitchcock: Or the ladies' bathroom. You know what? I'll check again.
Rosa: I've never seen him walk with such purpose. What a wretched man.

Quote from Gina

Jake: I can't believe this is happening. I didn't think there was any way she could fail the practice test.
Rosa: Well, we still have three hours until the exam.
Jake: First we gotta figure out where she is. All right, think. If you were Amy, where would you be right now?
Gina: Oh, uh, boring pantsuit store. A crossword factory? A museum of retainers and headgear? Is it possible to enter the color beige?

Quote from Jake

Jake: Okay, fine, I'll be Amy. Just know everything I'm about to say, I say with love. [exhales sharply] Okay. I'm outside. It's 78 degrees and yet somehow I'm still cold. Better walk on the sunny side of the street. Wait, did I remember to put on sunscreen? Pause to think, pause to think. Yes, I did put on sunscreen, and I bragged about it all morning. Amy's on the move. And I'm walking, I'm walking.

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: Check out Jeffords Junction. It's got a ice cream shop, a '50s diner, and a Mexican restaurant with a sombrero on it.
Captain Holt: What happens to the sombrero when it rains? I see no drains.
Does it just fill up with water until the building collapses, killing everyone inside?
Sergeant Jeffords: Fun fact: it never rains at Jeffords Junction.
Captain Holt: So you achieved this level of lushness through irrigation alone?

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: I don't know. I'm just trying to build a fun world. That's what model trains are all about: imagination.
Captain Holt: No, they're about accuracy. People like to see the world around them exactly as it is, but smaller.

Quote from Jake

Kylie: Oh, no, I like him, just not as a boyfriend for Amy. Or as a trivia teammate.
Jake: Okay, Kylie, you have gotta get over the trivia thing. I tried my hardest!
[cut to Jake, Amy and Kylie at a bar's trivia night:]
Jake: The phrase you're looking for is, "Winter is coming."
Ray: No, what Paul Revere said was that the British are coming.
Kylie: Come on.
Jake: Yeah, come on.
[present:]
Jake: So what, Paul Revere never said "winter is coming?" Not even in late autumn? I still think I was right.

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: Hello, Dylan. I'm Captain Holt. We have some trains here to play with, like this one that carries coal and rivets, the two main exports of our town. Would you like to transport some coal or rivets?

Quote from Amy

Rosa: So she's stress-braiding. Big deal. That's like a one on the Santiago Panic Scale.
Jake: Yeah, but we've also jumped up to level two, creepily singing songs from the Great American Songbook.
[cut to Jake and Amy in bed:]
Amy: You're a grand old flag. You're a high flying flag.

Quote from Amy

Jake: Hey, babe. [gasping] Oh! I see you've taken the braids out. Your hair looks fun.
Amy: Now it's ready for me to braid again.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Okay. Ames, I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but you gotta calm the "F train" down.

Quote from Amy

Amy: You think that because you love me, and love has made you dumb.
Jake: I disagree, if anything, love has made me smarter. Remember last week when I boiled that egg?
Amy: That was big. I was really proud of you.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Yes, and hold onto your crazy-ass hair because I'm about to prove to you that you have nothing to worry about. Follow me. Practice test. You ace it, you relax, you nail the real one, you become a sergeant, you make grateful love to me for 14 hours straight.
Amy: Jake-
Jake: Fine, one hour. 15 minutes. Eight. Three but they're mind-blowing.
Amy: I told you a million times-
Jake: You don't really want more than three.

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: All we have in there are toys from the movie "Kazaam," and none of 'em are even Kazaam.

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: I have an extra graphing calculator I could leave in there for the children.

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: I like this idea, Jeffords. I'll help you build the train set.
Sergeant Jeffords: Sweet! This'll be fun.
Captain Holt: I hope not. It's trains.

Quote from Gina

Charles: Gina, as you know, Great Nana Boyle recently passed.
Gina: Yes, I watched the live stream of the plug-pulling ceremony.

Quote from Charles

Charles: Anyway, they executed her will. Guess what she left me?
Gina: No.
Charles: Her silk bed sheets. They were very special to her. She insisted on dying in them.

Quote from Gina

Charles: You're right, it's pretty gross. You don't bake bread. Let me take it off your hands.
Gina: Oh, Charles. [laughing] Charles, Charles, Charles. You already showed your cards, baby boy. You know how badly you want this, so you're gonna have to pay for it.
Charles: Gina, please.
Gina: No, I'll take $10,000.
Charles: What? Are you out of your mind?
Gina: Probably.
Charles: You don't even want that. You said it smelled like death.
Gina: I thought it did, but now [sniffs] [groans] Smells like opportunity.
Charles: Ugh.
Gina: Oh, God, it really does smell bad. My eyes hurt.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Everybody shush! It's ringing, I can hear her phone. She's still in the building. She's still in the room! [phone buzzing] She's in her desk drawer! Nope. It's just her purse. Phone must be in the purse. That makes more sense.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Duty Sergeant said she exited this way, and she's not here. Damn it!
Rosa: Stop thinking about her like she's your girlfriend. What would you do if she was a perp?
Jake: I guess role play, try and see the world through her eyes. Oh, no, what if I see my reflection and fall in love with myself?

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: GP40 Diesel locomotive with sprung drive wheels, rule 17 lighting, and full underbody detailing. You're gonna be the belle of the ball.

Quote from Charles

Charles: Gina! I just want to say, I am disgusted by you. You somehow lucked your way into a family heirloom, and have the gall to ask me to give you $10,000 for it? That's an absurd amount of money! Took me all morning to get it together!
Gina: Oh, I thought you were telling me off.
Charles: And what would that get me? Pride? You can't make bread with pride.

Quote from Charles

Gina: Well, unfortunately, I've changed my mind. I want to keep the mother dough. I'm gonna start baking.
Charles: I see what you're doing. You're trying to up the price. Well, shame on you. But also, here you go. An extra $2,000. You won't get one cent more after this.

Quote from Charles

Gina: Listen, you gotta get over it. It was just some old bread batter. It had black spots in it.
Charles: Those are sour spores! That's where the tang comes from. That's tang town.

Quote from Jake

Jake: I'm walking. I'm walking and I'm seeing a paper supply store. I wonder if they have those new summer folders?
Rosa: Whoa, you're good. I've definitely heard her talk about those folders.
Jake: That's because they have such a fun color scheme, perfect for vacation organization.
Rosa: This is chilling.

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: We're building this for kids! You really think they're gonna enjoy your brown rectangle of dirt with one little house?
Captain Holt: Excuse me, this is an accurate facsimile of a mid-sized switching yard. And it isn't a "little house." It's a work shed where the yardmen get their OSHA-mandated eight hours of rest between shifts. So, yeah, I think the kids are gonna love it.

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: Okay, we have a witness coming in at 3:00 with her son.
Let's split this train set in two, make our own models, and see which one he likes more.
Captain Holt: You're on.
Sergeant Jeffords: You don't stand a chance. I'm gonna turn Jeffords Junction into the funnest town in America. That's right, I said "funnest." [Terry starts dancing]
Captain Holt: Stop dancing. Stop dancing. This is a direct order. Stop dancing.

Rosa: Can we please get back to Amy? She signed in downstairs 20 minutes ago, but she didn't come here, so where is she?
Jake: Well, this is the Department of Records, so I'm going to make an educated guess and say she came here for a record.
Kylie: Ooh, not sure you're qualified to make an educated guess.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Okay, I know where you're going with this, the Theory of Relativity question.
[cut to Jake, Amy and Kylie at a bar's trivia night:]
Jake: Uh, he's got crazy hair, super smart, Jewy name. Eisenberg! Jesse Eisenberg.
Kylie: Sit down!
Jake: Look, I know lots of things. I know the names of every Transformer. Yeah, even the Dinobots. Grimlock much?
Rosa: No.
Jake: [laughing] Okay. I'm not dumb, I just can't handle the trivia pressure.

Quote from Jake

Kylie: Yeah, there was a 99th precinct case file from January, 2014, that was just accessed.
Jake: Okay, I definitely know where she is.
Kylie: Like you definitely knew the Serengeti was a type of pasta?
Jake: Let it go, Kylie!

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: Mount Terry's looking good, just add a little snow, and perfect.
Captain Holt: Ah, yes. Now, that's what I call the right amount of arid shrubbery.
Sergeant Jeffords: Great job, Captain. That's just what the kid's gonna want, to play in a serial killer's dumping ground.

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: Or would you like to come over here to Jeffords Junction, where it's always all four seasons and a volcano?

Quote from Captain Holt

Dylan: Do you have guys have any video games?
Captain Holt: Okay, I see what's happening here. You're afraid that you're gonna make Sergeant Jeffords feel bad. Don't worry, he's a subordinate.
Dylan: No, just trains are kinda lame and nobody plays with them.
Sergeant Jeffords: Okay, but surely one of these trains is less lame than the other, right?
Dylan: No, they look exactly the same to me.
Captain Holt: [contemplating for a moment] Get out.

Quote from Gina

Charles: Don't you understand what will happen if they find out? Gina, they will banish you from the family. No more Boyle activities. No Christmas cards, no Thanksgiving cards, no Valentine's cards. That's right, imagine a Valentine's Day with no cards from your cousins.
Gina: Oh, my God. This is a dream come true. You think I can get out of all the family vacations too? Because let's be honest, Charles, Aruba was the worst thing that's ever happened. How do all 18 of you have sleep apnea?

Quote from Jake

Jake: Hey.
Amy: How'd you find me?
Jake: January 14th, 2014. Detectives Peralta and Santiago conducted surveillance from a rooftop at 397 Barton Street. This is where we came the night I won our bet and you fell in love with me.
Amy: Jake.
Jake: The night that you flirted with me for 20 seconds and I became obsessed with you forever.

Quote from Amy

Amy: I'm sorry I freaked out and ran away.
Jake: It's okay. Just because you messed up the practice test doesn't mean you're gonna fail the real one.
Amy: I didn't mess it up. I got 102%. I found a spelling error in one question. I gave myself extra credit.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Then why'd you leave?
Amy: Because that was the first time it really hit me. When I pass the exam, I'll actually be a sergeant. And what if everything changes between us?
Jake: That's why you came here?
Amy: Yeah. Things are so good right now. I don't want to screw that up by getting transferred or becoming your boss.
Jake: Ames, I've always known you were gonna be my boss. I mean, this is your dream, from before we were dating. And yeah, things might change a little, but for the better, right? We can finally get premium cable, check out all those shows on EPIX.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Come on. Come on! Oh, no! I broke the hotel key I forgot was in my wallet for the last five years.

Quote from Jake

Amy: It's my fault we're up here. I just won't take the test. I'll wait three years for the next one.
Jake: Oh, no, you won't.
Amy: No. Jake, you are not Die-Harding off this roof.
Jake: I am definitely Die-Harding off this roof, for you and only for you, and also for me 'cause I've always wanted to do it.

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: I just set up a video game system. The kid's much happier. Turns out children don't care about model trains.
Captain Holt: Not only children. I'm beginning to think nobody does.
[cut to Holt on the phone]
Captain Holt: Kevin, you are not gonna believe this. Terry put Lo-V IRT Pullman rolling stock on a ballastless track. I was dying, Kevin, dying. Yes, you can hang up now.

Quote from Charles

Charles: This is when the Boyles went to that farm and we all got hoof and mouth disease. Ah, when we went to that water park, and we all got hoof and mouth disease again.

Quote from Charles

Charles: Gina, it's okay, you don't have to do this.
Gina: Yes, I do, because you're my brother.
Charles: [sighs] Isn't she great? We used to have sex, you know.
Both: Cool.
Gina: You don't have to mention that every time, you idiot.

Quote from Jake

Ray: Okay, welcome to trivia night.
Kylie: You said you would never bring him again.
Amy: Don't worry, it's gonna be fine, I promise.
Jake: Is it?
Ray: Tonight's first category, by special request, the "Transformers" movies.
Jake: Yes!
Ray: Question one. What is the name of the evil race of Transformers?
Jake: The robot bad robot. Oh, God, I don't know.
Kylie: Damn it, Jake!
Jake: I'm sorry, I can't take the trivia "presh"! Why couldn't you have just given me the three minutes?

Quote from Charles

Amy: What?
Charles: Uh, nothing. I'm gonna go over to there now.

Quote from Jake

Jake: So, yeah, it's a little tough right now, but I think the worst is behind us.
Amy: Why are you taking so long to cook my frickin' oatmeal? [Amy throws the microwave on the ground]
Jake: Yeah. [Amy starts beating the microwave with her truncheon] She'll be okay.

Quote from Rosa

Jake: I mean, Amy was a wreck and I fixed her. The weird thing is, I love her so much, I don't even feel like bragging about it.
Rosa: Clearly.

Quote from Scully

Scully: All right, two things. One, we're out of chips.
Jake: How?
Scully: You skimped us. And two, Amy left and asked me to give you this note. What's she say? She go out to get us more chips?
Jake: No, the practice test freaked her out. She's not taking the sergeant's exam. Damn it.
Scully: Damn it!

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: Terry is your god. All hail Lord Terry, giver of life. [high voice] "All hail Lord Terry."

Quote from Charles

Gina: Charles, get your chicken leg off my desk. I don't want your money, Boyle.
Charles: What's going on?
Gina: Nothing, I just realized that I just love old, sour bread so much!
Charles: Come on, Gina.
Gina: Fine! I put it under my desk and my space heater burnt it to a crisp.
Charles: [screams] You're a murderer!

Quote from Jake

Jake: Darn it to heck. The store is closed. My bad day just got a whole heck of a lot worse. Time to go smoke in secret. And as I'm shame-smoking, I'm seeing-
Both: The library.

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: Captain, did you throw away my sombrero restaurant?
Captain Holt: Oh, I might have knocked it in the bin by accident. I do remember saying, "Oops." Fine, I'll come clean. You're ruining our model with your frivolous garbage.

Quote from Rosa

Jake: Okay, so Amy's test is in an hour and we have no idea where she is. I'm spiraling. Somebody say something positive.
Kylie: I cannot believe you screwed this up for her.
Jake: I was kind of hoping for something more traditionally positive, as opposed to overtly negative.
Kylie: And I was hoping you wouldn't lose my best friend.
Rosa: Starting to feel like you're not a real big Jake head.

Quote from Captain Holt

Sergeant Jeffords: All aboard the Jeffords Victory Express!
Captain Holt: Oh, I'm sure the child will love that you put a steam locomotive whistle on a diesel train. I'm joking, he's going to vomit when he hears that.

Quote from Gina

Charles: Gina. I just got an email from the council of cousins. Tina Boyle is contesting the will.
Gina: So?
Charles: So he's coming here right now with an officer of the court. The mother dough is to be placed in protective custody until the matter is resolved.
Gina: Yeah, it's resolved. I cooked it.

Quote from Gina

Gina: Oh, no! May I still please be on the Boyle daily email blast? Please?

Quote from Jake

Jake: You don't have a key for this random roof door, do you?

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Captain Holt: I guess we're condemned to a life of solo railroading.
Sergeant Jeffords: We don't have to be. I know we've had our differences, but through some crazy twist of fate we found each other. Shouldn't we just be excited that we have someone to share that with?
Captain Holt: Not interested. Good day.
Sergeant Jeffords: Okay. Well, I just wanted to show you I got a tiny little train inspector. It's to make sure the tracks were up to code. I'll be going.
Captain Holt: Wait. You left your figurine behind for some reason. Take it. [Terry starts leaving again] Wait.
[cut to Terry and Holt playing with the train set]
Captain Holt: Come on, Sergeant, take the train through the pass.
Sergeant Jeffords: All aboard the Terryliner. Next stop, Holtsovania.

Quote from Jake

Rosa: All right, you get to the exam, I'll take care of Jake.
Jake: Yeah, don't worry about me. The important thing is, you go become a sergeant. Leave me! I know it's gonna be hard to walk away, but you have to be strong!
Rosa: She left like two minutes ago. You're talking to nobody.
Jake: Yeah, that makes sense.

Quote from Amy

Jake: Hey.
Amy: Hey!
Jake: That looks like the strut of a lady who just crushed an exam.
Amy: I sure did, and finished 45 minutes early.
Rosa: Oh, nice, did everyone else give you dirty looks?
Amy: So dirty.

Quote from Jake

Amy: Listen. I just want to thank you guys for chasing me down and getting me here. I know it's been a rough day, Jake, but I think I know how to make it up to you.
Jake: [gasps] Three minutes?
Amy: Oh, no, not that. Even better.
