Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The Favor

511. The Favor

Aired December 12, 2017

Rosa begs Jake to help her break some big news to her parents, but her plan is thrown off when they wrongly assume the two are dating. Then, when Seamus Murphy returns to redeem the favor Holt owes him, the precinct searches for a loophole that will allow Holt to uphold his end of the bargain without breaking the law.

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: I wish he would turn the radio down.
Jake: You think that's the radio? That sounds like professional music to you?
Captain Holt: All music after Mahler sounds exactly like that.


Quote from Captain Holt

Seamus Murphy: You ever want to do business again, my door is always open.
Captain Holt: Well, you should close it, lest you get moths. Good day.

Quote from Amy

Rosa: I've never met anyone who cares so much about stupid bureaucracy.
Amy: Bureaucracy is not stupid. It's elegant. It's a beautiful puzzle waiting to be cracked. Every rule, every form has its purpose. It all fits together, and when the puzzle is solved and you take a step back and see the big picture, it's like staring into the face of God.

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: Seamus Murphy.
Seamus Murphy: That's right. Remember how I saved your detectives from prison in exchange for a favor? The time has come-
Captain Holt: Wait. This isn't my order.
Seamus Murphy: What?
Captain Holt: This is an omelet. I only eat omelets on vacation.

Quote from Charles

Captain Holt: Well, how are you gonna find out what his real plan is? He's smart, and he doesn't talk to anyone but his family.
Jake: I was worried about that, too, but that's when I remembered: "The Godfather."
Charles: The Diane Keaton movie.
Jake: No one refers to it as that, but Charles is right, she is in it.

Quote from Scully

Captain Holt: He only wants to use the block party as a cover for something criminal: a robbery, a murder, or something worse.
Jake: You don't know that for sure, and that's your loophole.
Captain Holt: I don't believe in loopholes.
Jake: What? Loopholes are the best. Remember that time when Pancake Palace had that all-you-can-eat deal, but they didn't set a time limit? I ate pancakes for a week for $3.99. All I had to do was sleep there and never shower.
Scully: What? Thanks for the invite, friend.

Quote from Sergeant Jeffords

Sergeant Jeffords: Pumping hard or hardly pumping, Gina?

Quote from Hitchcock

Hitchcock: Hi, there. I'd like to humiliate some hussies, and I'm in a hurry.

Quote from Rosa

Amy: Ready for a kick-ass assignment?
Rosa: Hell yeah. Let's do this. Wait, what do you mean by "kick-ass"?
Amy: Holt wants us to get that block party permit.
Rosa: Damn it. I guess I'll take the knife out of my pants.

Quote from Captain Holt

Captain Holt: So, did you make contact with Murphy's weak link, Diane Keaton's brother-in-law?

Quote from Jake

Captain Holt: All right, go make contact with Diane Keaton's brother-in-law.
Jake: Fredo. It's Fredo. It's one of the most popular movies of all time. Won best picture, so.

Quote from Gina

Sergeant Jeffords: Hey, Gina. How's it feel to be back? Any trouble adjusting?
Gina: Adjusting to what?
Sergeant Jeffords: To life as a working mom. You have to juggle the baby, the job, your new business.
Gina: Terry, juggling isn't hard. That's why the salary for jugglers is so low. Name one rich juggler.
Sergeant Jeffords: Doesn't Dave Coulier juggle?
Gina: If you're reaching for Coulier, then you've already lost the argument, Terr-Bear.

Quote from Gina

Gina: But there is one thing: I need a private place where I can pump. I was thinking maybe I could take this whole floor and you guys could move down to that place where we park.
Sergeant Jeffords: The garage?
Gina: Sure, if you think that works.

Quote from Charles

Jake: All right, let's go over our covers one more time. We are small-time operators that just moved here from Miami. We piloted go-fast boats, moving contraband to Cuba.
Charles: Where we slept with the same prostitute.
Jake: No.
Charles: And she said you were the best she ever had.
Jake: Maybe.
Charles: And I should watch you to learn.
Jake: Back to no let's just not talk about our sex lives.

Quote from Jake

Jake: Love all the lamps.
Kyle Murphy: Thanks. I accidentally ordered 100 lamps instead of one. They only give you, like, a six-month return window, so. You get it.
Jake: Totally.
