  • Surprisingly strong

    9.0
    The team manages to make police work "light" and "fun". Door duty continues to shock with a naked old woman and a woman who thrusts her baby into Jake's arms. This episode also brought an enemy into the picture and continues to prod at old issues (like the Sgt's incident issue). It's nice how cogent each separate storyline is and despite the fact that there's a case in each episode, the writers still manage to tie it up each time.moreless

    8.0
    This show continues to be one of the surprises of the season thus far. A lot of funny lines here and they have actually found a way to make a cop comedy work, something that has not been done in decades. Good guest appearance by Dean Winters and good performances by the entire cast around.

    • Gina: (answering the phone) Gina's stolen police line.
      Jake: Hey, Gina, do you have a hair dryer in your purse?
      Gina: Of course. I'm not an animal.

    • Ray: Still waiting, sergeant.
      Terry: It's just... the target looks exactly like a friend of mine. It's freaking me out.
      Ray: You have a friend... who's just a silhouette?
      Terry: Yes!

    • Det. Pembroke: Stay foxy.
      Amy: Die lonely.

    • Jake: (to Amy) Give me your hair dryer.
      Rosa: What?
      Amy: What are you talking about?
      Jake: Don't you carry one in your purse?
      Amy: Have you ever met a human woman?

    • Charles: What if we wrap his motorcycle in plastic wrap and melt it with a hair dryer? Little trick I learned in gift basket making class.

    • Det. Pembroke: Hey, should we take odds on how fast I'll solve this case?
      Jake: Nope.
      Det. Pembroke: I mean, what was it with Diaz's last "impossible" extortion case? What was it? Six hours?
      Rosa: That's because it was 98% solved.
      Det. Pembroke: The last 2%'s the hardest to get. That's why they leave it in the milk.
      Jake: What?

    • Det. Pembroke: Hey, you know, before I solve this case, I'd like to thank you for doing all the super easy work. You know, the real Nancy Drew level stuff.
      Jake: Oh, yeah? Did Nancy Drew solve a lot of murders?
      Charles: Yep, she did. Murder on Ice, Recipe for Murder. Nancy was a wonderful detective. I wanted to be her when I grew up.
      Jake: Thanks, Charles. That's helpful!

    • Doorman: (plays the wrong voice recording on his phone) Idea for a novel: a mild-mannered doorman gets bitten on the penis by a radioactive spider and becomes the world's greatest lover. (clicks it off)
      Jake: No, don't stop it! I want to hear what happens.
      Doorman: He saves the First Lady, if you must know.
      Jake: Sounds compelling.

    • Jake: I'm about to solve this case, meet the mayor, then sell my life rights to Channing Tatum so he can play my less attractive brother in the ensuing film.

    • Gina: I want to get certified. There has been a ton of crime in my neighborhood, and the cops in my precinct are very bad.
      Ray: You live in our precinct.
      Gina: Yeah... I know.

    • Rosa: Come on, Peralta! Holt said to use the whole team. We all want this solved.
      Jake: I appreciate the offer, but I work best alone. Except when it comes to sex. Actually... sometimes including sex.
