Quote from Amy

Amy: My period's late, I think I might be pregnant.
Rosa: Oh, damn.
Amy: I can't be pregnant! Jake and I agreed to wait at least a year until we tried. I haven't found an OB, I'm not on any preschool waiting lists, and I spent all of yesterday in a room with Hitchcock and his new cologne, which can't be good for the baby it is literally called Zika!

Quote from Charles

Sergeant Jeffords: Peralta, you're in charge of the manhunt for the shooter.
Jake: Oh, my God, it's a manhunt. And I'm the Manhunter.
Charles: And I'm your sidekick, the Boyhunter.
Rosa: Come on, dude.

Quote from Charles

Jake: Boyle, gather everyone up.
Charles: Oh, we starting a burn book about Holt? Let's drag him, baby!
Jake: No, someone saw our hoodie guy.
Charles: Right, we'll do the burn book later.
Jake: Attention, everyone, we have a possible sighting of our shooter on Hoyt Street. Detective Boyle and I will take Alpha unit. Smith, Fox-
Charles: You guard the burn book.
Jake: Charles, no.
Charles: Stand down.

Quote from Charles

Charles: What's going on? The guy's on Hoyt Street.
Jake: I know, I gave Holt a fake lead to get rid of him. Don't worry, I'm still the Manhunter.
Charles: [singing] He's the Manhunter! And the boy who he hunts with-
Jake: What's that song?
Charles: The Boyhunter song! [singing] Boyhunter Down by the schoolyard.
Jake: Why is he by the schoolyard?
Charles: He's gotta protect the kids!
Jake: Sounds terrible.
Charles: Really, I don't hear it!

Quote from Charles

Jake: Look, we all know Scully has the hardest head, but what concerns me is the speed factor.
Sergeant Jeffords: Squad, listen up!
Jake: Not now, Terry. We're having an argument about who would win in a fight if we couldn't use our arms.
Hitchcock: Everyone agrees, I'd bite the best.
Charles: Meaningless! True strength comes from the pelvis, not the mouth.

Quote from Jake

Jake: I'm gonna be on the news. I'm gonna look straight into the camera and say, "If the shooter is watching, I hope you like living between St. Charles Place and Connecticut Ave."
Amy: I don't get it.
Jake: It's from "Monopoly". That's where jail is. Whatever, it was a good line. Keep briefing!

Quote from Charles

Charles: He's taking over your case, Jake. You have to stop him.
Jake: Well, you know, it takes a true leader to let someone else lead.
Charles: Ugh, sounds exactly like something I would say. Snap out of it.

Quote from Charles

Charles: Street's clear. No sign of the shooter, where'd he go?
Jake: Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.
Charles: Why are you shushing me?
Jake: I'm doing that thing where I listen really closely for a noise clue, like glass breaking or trash rustling.
Charles: Cool! Is it working?
Jake: No, not yet.
Charles: Because I'm talking?
Jake: Well, it's not helping.
Charles: Right, right, right. I'll be quiet.
Jake: You don't have to say you'll be quiet, just be quiet.
Charles: Okay. I'm sorry for not being quiet.
Jake: Once again, don't have to say.
Charles: Just wanna be clear what I'm doing.
Jake: Understood. I'm just gonna listen.
Charles: Okay. I'll be very quiet.
Jake: Don't have to say it.
Charles: Just wanna make sure you know what I'm doing.
Jake: Please stop.
Charles: So I don't throw you.
Jake: Okay, stop talking.
Charles: I'll stop talking.
Jake: Great.
Charles: I'll make sure I don't do that again.
Jake: All right, Charles, I love you, but you ruined it.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Oh, wait! It's after 11. My interview! It's supposed to be on the news.
Chris Reneaux: [on TV] An incredible conclusion to a terrifying day, and we were able to get a comment from the men who helped solve this case.
Hitchcock: They call us the Weiner Warriors.
Jake: No!

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: Why is the tent so quiet? Is everybody talking about me now?
Rosa: Nobody is talking about you.
Sergeant Jeffords: Sure. Terry walks into a tent and everybody just happens to stop talking at the same damn time? You are gaslighting me just like my daughters!
Amy: Terry, I think you're being paranoid.
Sergeant Jeffords: I'm not paranoid! I put a recording device in my girls' room.
Amy: You planted a bug in your daughters' room?
Sergeant Jeffords: I do what I have to do. They said I look like a giant triangle!
Rosa: Is that an insult?
Sergeant Jeffords: I don't know! But they were laughing like it was, and it hurt just the same! Don't have kids!

Quote from Captain Holt

Jake: So what, you're just saying we have the wrong guy now, because you're upset about the fake lead?
Captain Holt: No, I'm saying you have the wrong guy because you do. When I realized your lead was nothing but hooey, I went back to re-interview the hot dog man, but he was gone. And why was that? Debbie, tell 'em!
Officer Debbie Fogle: Oh, no, I don't want to be a part of this.
Captain Holt: Because the hot dog man is the shooter.
Charles: What? That seems like a reach.
Captain Holt: Sometimes, when you reach, you grab the truth.
Charles: Sorry, Jake, he turned it around on me.
Jake: Come on!
Captain Holt: The hot dog man gave a false statement to throw us off the scent and then vanished while we were off looking for the wrong guy. Face it, you're no Manhunter. If anything, you're a Wrong Manhunter.

Quote from Amy

Rosa: All right. Let's take this thing and get it over with.
Amy: I can't.
Rosa: What? Why?
Amy: I have no pee inside of me. I'm pee-free, Rosa! What do I do, what do I do?
Rosa: Drink water.
Amy: Oh, yeah. You're smart. You're a very good friend, I'm glad you're here.
