Review Quotes


On Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 3 Episode 8, Terry and Rosa have to go investigate a murder case. Terry asks Jake to take care of his wife Sharon at the precinct, while keeping her away from Captain Holt, who stresses her out.  Jake asks Gina to help manage Holt, but are faced with a surprise when Sharon's water breaks.

Jake tries frantically to keep Sharon calm, including telling Captain Holt to stay away from her. Holt takes this personally, and makes Jake's job as Sharon's caretaker even more complicated.  Terry tries to make it back, but faces obstacles like a stopped subway and surface traffic.

Meanwhile, the internet is down at the precinct, forcing Charles and Amy to do all the paperwork by hand to process the offenders they've brought in. The process is slow because they are forced to use only one fax machine, and the people in the precinct start getting frustrated. Hitchcock and Scully, making things worse, inadvertently start a fire, causing the alarm to go off.

Sharon and Terry planned to use a doula and avoid hospitals, but since the doulas are not available, Jake convinces Captain Holt to ask his estranged ex-boyfriend Frederick (played by Nick Offerman), an OB-GYN, to assist with Sharon's birth. Frederick, concerned about Sharon's blood pressure and the precinct environment, recommends the hospital.

Sharon turns to Jake for advice and they go to the hospital, and Terry arrives angry that Jake has gone against his wishes. However, he realizes afterwards that the hospital was the right decision, and after thanking everyone for their part in baby Ava's birth, he allows Jake to be the first to see her.
