Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: The Full Bullpen!


Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: Diaz, Santiago, settle a little tiff that Kevin and I are having.
Kevin: Let's be honest, Raymond, it's not a tiff, it's a row.
Captain Holt: And now it's a scene.

Quote from Jake

Jake: All the death threats were sent from New York, so the perp is local. They'll probably try and strike at the book reading tomorrow night.
Sergeant Jeffords: And he's probably camped out on the street with the other fan boys. They've been lined up for three days.
Jake: To listen to an old man read a story? I will never understand this world.
Sergeant Jeffords: You once took a train to Toronto to get a Canadian VHS copy of "Die Hard".
Jake: There was a rumor it was better sound quality. Get a grip, Terry.

Quote from Captain Holt

Rosa: Come on, sir, the math thing isn't the problem. Night shift's keeping you and Kevin apart. You two just need to bone.
Amy: [chuckles nervously]
Captain Holt: What did you say?
Amy: Don't say it again.
Rosa: I said you two need to bone.
Amy: [whimpers]
Captain Holt: How dare you, Detective Diaz. I am your superior officer! [shouting, five minutes later] Bone! [sternly, ten minutes later] What happens in my bedroom, Detective, is none of your business. [shouting, twenty-one minutes later] Bone?! [calmly, forty minutes later] Don't ever speak to me like that again.

Quote from Rosa

Amy: Oh, Captain, I know you don't want to talk about Monty Hall, but I did contact a math professor-
Captain Holt: No need, Santiago. It's all good.
Amy: So the fight with Kevin is over?
Captain Holt: Yep.
Amy: Because you understand the math now?
Captain Holt: Nope.
Rosa: Because you guys-
Captain Holt: Yep.
Rosa: Knew it. See, what happened is, your dads had sex-
Amy: Okay, Rosa.

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Rosa: So why are the Nine-Five on the news?
Jake: They're investigating death threats against some author named DC Parlov, as if anyone knows who the hell that is.
Sergeant Jeffords: DC Parlov? Did you say DC Parlov?
Jake: What is happening?
Sergeant Jeffords: DC Parlov is the most influential author of our time. "The Skyfire Cycle!" 12 books chronicling the war between sky and sand, clouds and rocks, the Sepsidians and-
Charles: Oh, so it's like a "Game of Thrones" type thing?
Sergeant Jeffords: No, "Game of Thrones" is a "Skyfire" type thing! Get your head out of your ass!

Quote from Amy

Rosa: It's okay, sir, we don't want to get involved in your personal life.
Captain Holt: It's not personal.
Kevin: It's a math problem.
Rosa: Pass.
Amy: Oh, Mama.

Quote from Amy

Kevin: Raymond and I had dinner together last night for the first time in two weeks, thanks to the night shift.
Captain Holt: And Kevin thought it would be fun to spoil our date with an inane math problem, to which his answer is wrong.
Amy: Enough foreplay, let's get to the numbers.

Quote from Amy

Rosa: Anyway, it's not about the math. They haven't seen each other because of the night shift. They just need to bone.
Amy: What? Gross! Rosa, those are our dads! I mean ... [chuckles] ... That's not what I think. Captain Dad is just my boss.
Rosa: Wow.
Amy: Never mind, I'm teaching father the math! Whatever, Rosa.

Quote from Amy

Captain Holt: It's the "Monty Hall problem." Imagine you're on a game show. There are three doors, behind one of which is a car.
Kevin: You're telling it wrong. There are three doors, behind one of which is a car. You pick a door. The host, who knows where the car is, opens a different door, showing you there's nothing behind it. Now the host asks if you'd like to choose the other unopened door. Should you do it?
Captain Holt: No.
Kevin: Yes.
Both: It's simple math.
Captain Holt: It doesn't make any sense to switch. The prize is behind one of two doors. It's a 50/50 chance either way.
Kevin: It's 2/3 if you switch, 1/3 if you don't. The probability locks in when you make the choice. We've been over this eight times.
Captain Holt: Seven times. Now you can't even do simple addition.
Amy: Kevin is right.
Captain Holt: Hmm. You're fired.
Amy: What?
Rosa: Ah!

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: Is everything okay, Santiago?
Amy: No, I lost my ring.
Captain Holt: Did you see where it went?
Amy: Actually it's behind one of these three doors. Why don't you pick one?
Captain Holt: Are you trying to Monty Hall me? It's unbelievable. I don't need Monty Hall ruining my place of work when Monty Hall has already ruined my home life.
