When I finish my last night shift I try to stay awake for as long as possible in an effort to turn my body clock around. This is always a struggle and it means I'm not good for very much for about a day and a half. One of the things I am good for in this phase however, is zonking out in front of the modern idiot box (streaming movies, etc).
This time around I watched the entire first series of Brooklyn Nine-Nine - a zany, quirky, cop show featuring Adam Samberg - over a mere three days. The episodes are easily consumable at a shade over twenty minutes each, and the jokes come thick and fast. As a bonus, Brooklyn Nine-Nine also features Terry Crews in top form as the precinct Sergeant.
Here are some neat lines snagged whilst watching:
- "The last 2%'s ours to get, that's why they leave it in the milk". - The Vulture (the team talk about "getting vultured", which is when The Vulture swoops in at the last minute to steal their glory with an 'it's alright guys, I got it from here'.)
- "You guys, I forgot how to breathe. Is it two in and one out?" - Terry Crews having a panic attack
- "You tell anyone, I'll break your face" - Rosa
- "Check me" - Jake Peralta, instead of 'Check-mate'.
- "How has there not been a tv movie made about your struggles" - Jake Peralta
- "Nuh-uh!" - Jake Peralta
- "It's the best book I've ever read, and I've read 15 books" - Jake Peralta
- "Got it ... boring, mumbo jumbo" - Chelsea Peretti
- "Why doesn't my life work out perfectly
- "Ooh, self burn. Those are rare" - Jake Peralta
- "Blink twice if you'd like me to mercy kill you" - Rosa
- "I was born for politics. I have great hair and I love to lie" - Chelsea Peretti
- Rosa: "I'm out. Four hours is the most I've ever spent alone with any human. It was the worst experience of my life." Amy: What about that time we drove up to Boston together? That was about four hours. Oh I see what just happened.
