Review Quotes


On Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 3 Episode 2, the precinct is set to attend the funeral of Captain Dozerman. Jake tries to befriend their new captain, The Vulture, in order to draw his attention away from the rest of the team. However, The Vulture figures out his plan and threatens to demote Jake if he doesn't dump Amy.

Jake and Amy seek the help of Captain Holt, who has come to the Nine-Nine for a PR visit with The Vulture. Shaken from his encounter with The Vulture, who belittled him and rejected his suggestions as former precinct captain, he refuses to help Jake and Amy.

Meanwhile, Charles is excited about the funeral, since he's been meeting another lieutenant at police funerals and having sex. Charles meets this woman, but Gina and Rosa's insistence that this is out of character for him gets to him. He goes with the woman, but decides to ask her questions about herself. He finds out that she's a vegan, which turns him off.

At the funeral, Jake and Amy decide to record The Vulture's threat to demote Jake and seek the help of the chief of detectives. However, the plan doesn't work and The Vulture demotes Jake.

Terry finds Holt drinking at the bar where he later has to give a toast about hope. They both drink and share their troubles about how unhappy they are with the fact that Holt is no longer captain of the precinct.

Holt gives a terrible, hopeless speech at the funeral. However, Jake, trying to save his relationship with Amy, salvages the speech by saying he'll never give up on them. This moves Holt, and he finds a way to fix Jake and Amy's situation.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 3 Episode 2 Quotes

And now, a message of hope. Everything is garbage. You find something you care about, and it's taken from you. Your colleagues, your dream job, your mango yoghurt. Never love anything. That's the lesson.


Amy: Jake and I were talking last night...
Charles: Pillow-talk alert! Spooning or face-to-face?
