  • Laughed so hard!

    9.0
    Favorite story of the episode was Diaz court subplot OMG laughed so hard! I love this cast together and do agree with thefanof that some of the jokes are unnecessary and certain characters like Terry need better plots but overall I still think that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the top comedies of the season.

    6.0
    The show is just not consistently funny enough for me to call it a top comedy. A few good moments here, the two storylines were not bad, but I just think the writing needs to be stronger. A solid ensemble cast, you can come up with something better for Ray and Terry than they did here.

    • Rosa: How much time do we have?
      Jake: Scully ate his pot pie thirty minutes ago so we probably got ten minutes left on this nap. Twelve if he's turkey tired.

    • Jake: (to Jimmy) You can just make it out to "Death Wish." That's what everyone calls me 'cause I'm always first through the door.
      Amy: You go through doors normally, and everyone calls you "Pineapples."
      Jake: My grandma calls me "Pineapples," and I regret telling you that.

    • Rosa: (while on the witness stand) And when this is over, I'm going to find you, and I'm going to break those little fingers.
      Judge: Ms. Diaz, please stop threatening the stenographer!

    • Jake: Quick question, sir. You know how we've been trading favors back and forth, and it's your turn to give me one?
      Ray: None of that is true.
      Jake: Yeah, I know.

    • Amy: Look who's here. How was your night of old school drinking? Hmm? Pretty hungover?
      Jake: Shh. Turn off your mouth siren.

    • Charles: Rosa, I think you're nervous.
      Rosa: Of course I'm nervous! What'd you think was the problem?
      Terry: We just assumed you were a terrifying human being with a short fuse.

    • Amy: Hey, how'd it go with Brogan?
      Jake: Perfect. Except I punched him in the face and made everything a billion times worse.

    • Amy: If Jake didn't tell you, he must have had a reason. It's not my place.
      Ray: I'm disappointed in you, Santiago. I thought you and I were close.
      Amy: I know you're manipulating me... but I love it, and I will tell you anything.

    • Charles: So, where's your happy place?
      Rosa: I'm in a cabin... in the middle of nowhere. Inside it's just me and that stupid, slimy defense attorney. And I'm beating the hell out of him. I break a dining room table over his head. Then I rip off his arm and shove it where the sun don't shine. Then I reach down his throat... and shake his hand.
      Terry: ...Yeah. Okay. I'm going to go ahead and schedule you for a psych eval.
