For the uninitiated, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is The Office or Parks And Recreation of cop shows. That’s not by accident, either. That’s because Mike Schur, the producer and co-creator behind the two fan-favorite series, is also the mastermind who co-created Brooklyn Nine-Nine. And if you somehow live under a rock and have not watched a sitcom since the Must-See-TV days, then think of it as the Friends of cop shows — and Ugly Naked Guy was just brought in for questioning. There, that about sums it up.

Like its comedy counterparts, Brooklyn is full of hilarious quotes, jokes, and one-liners so witty it earned fans and critics’ hearts alike. So much so that according to the latest search data available to us, Brooklyn Nine-Nine quotes have a search volume of nearly 6,600 a month. That’s per month! The show has even done the impossible and found a catchphrase in the vein of, “that’s what she said.” So we’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of our favorites in the hopes you’ll be inspired to binge-watch the series all over again.
