6Quotes from ‘The Overmining’

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The Overmining

409. The Overmining

Aired December 6, 2016

Captain "CJ" is having major problems with a big case, and Jake and Holt find the motivation to help him out. Inside the precinct, war ensues when Terry enforces a green initiative and tells Gina to get rid of her precious space heater, while Rosa and Boyle take a break from the night shift to visit a foot massage parlor.

Quote from Gina

Sergeant Jeffords: Seriously? The heater's under your skirt?
Gina: Maybe. You can't prove that.
Sergeant Jeffords: Yeah, I can. There's a cord running under it, and I think you may be on fire.
Gina: Mm, so?
Sergeant Jeffords: What do you mean "so"?
Gina: I'm not giving up Jacinta.
Sergeant Jeffords: You are on fire, Gina. You do not have the upper hand in this situation.
Gina: I always have the upper hand.
Sergeant Jeffords: Not when there's flames shooting out of your butt!
Gina: Especially when there's flames shooting out of my butt.

Quote from Gina

Sergeant Jeffords: And, Gina, you can't run that space heater 24/7 anymore.
Gina: Space heater? Excuse me, this is a Fornax Radiant Comfort System, and her name is Jacinta.
Sergeant Jeffords: Okay, well, Jacinta's gotta go.
Gina: He didn't mean that, darling.
Sergeant Jeffords: Seriously, turn off the space heater.
Gina: No.
Sergeant Jeffords: Do it, now. That's an order.
Gina: Yeah, well, you don't wanna start a battle of the wills with Gina Linetti because you will emerge from that battle a broken man. Not to brag, but I was name-checked in my kindergarten teacher's suicide note.
Sergeant Jeffords: Oh my God.

Quote from Amy

Amy: That's why they say "it's test time, so diaper up." They say that, I've never said that. I've never worn a diaper during test. Who would wear a diaper during a test? That's ridiculous, I mean-

Quote from Captain Holt

Jake: Great, I'll go get C.J.
Captain Holt: Why? Why are you so determined to make him a part of this?
Jake: No reason.
Captain Holt: If you actually cared about your sacred oath, you'd see that he's a risk to the case. [laughs] Oh, my speech didn't actually inspire you, did it?
Jake: Ugh, all right, here's the truth. If we catch Flaco, and C.J. gets credit for it, he's gonna transfer out of the Nine-Nine.
Captain Holt: That's what this is all about? You're still trying to undermine the man?
Jake: What? No! The opposite, if anything. I want to see him succeed. I'm trying to overmine him.
Captain Holt: Oh, you know I hate it when you make up words, Peralta.
Jake: Are you still mad at me for saying "snaccident"?
Captain Holt: Yes, very.

Quote from Captain Holt

Jake: Why are there so many reporters? Even the Times is here.
Captain Holt: Wait, really? Who'd they send? Wilson, Palmer, Schneier, Levine, Rogers, Tyler, Baker, Correal, Bromwich, Robbins, Schmidt?
Jake: Stop saying reporters' names. How do you know so many names?
Captain Holt: They're the only real rock stars we have left.

Quote from Captain Holt

Jake: That was a train wreck.
Captain Holt: Yes, he never should have been put in that position. Whoever recommended him for the medal and called all those reporters really messed up.
Jake: Wait, what are you saying?
Captain Holt: Oh, nothing. It just seems as if C.J. has been overmined.
Jake: You did this?
Captain Holt: I did.
Jake: And you used my made-up word.
Captain Holt: I hated it, "overmined." What have I become? Was this whole thing even worth it?
Jake: It was no snaccident.
