Brooklyn Nine-Nine: House Mouses
February 22, 2016 7:19 PM - Season 3, Episode 16 - Subscribe

After Jake pawns a ho-hum drug case off on Hitchcock and Scully, it turns out that the small-fry investigation is a very loaded potato indeed. OPERATION BEANS IS GO! Meanwhile, Holt's classical-music fanboy nature comes to the fore on a robbery case concerning a famous(?) oboist; elsewhere, the ladies of the Nine-Nine make a mutual pact to face their greatest fears.


Although this is the first official B99 episode to show Scully and Hitchcock in full effect, the indolent duo also popped up in a series of short "Detective Skills" webisodes at the beginning of this season:

W1: Preparing For The Stakeout
W2: How To Stay Awake During A Stakeout
W3: The Booking Process

Another fantastic Holt episode. "You might call us....Weichselbraun fans."

I enjoyed it too, lots of great and quotable laugh lines -- just look at all the tags for this one! But I wish that maybe it had been a better Scully/Hitchcock spotlight episode, in sort of the same way that Parks & Rec developed Jerry/Larry/Garry Gergich by transitioning him from generic office screw-up to the luckiest screw-up in the universe. B99 does exist in a lighter, cartoonier world than P&R (a necessary stylistic difference to compensate for the rougher NYC police milieu), but I'd like to see the characters continue to evolve as the show goes on instead of being stuck in one particular mode.

I'm sorry, but Rosa Diaz giving blood was the BEST THING EVER.
