Bravo to ‘The Box’ ep of Brooklyn Nine-Nine , where This is Us’ Sterling K Brown guests as a person of interest in a homicide case. Because the suspect is a tough nut to crack, Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) suggests he and Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) team up.
Says an excited Jake: “Well, a lot of these [interrogative] techniques do better with two people: you know, good cop/bad cop, crazy cop/sane cop, fast-talking streetwise and Hongkong cop, aka the ‘Rush Hour’.” Jake also proposes a strategy where he goes as Mad Dog Peralta: “Remember how angry I got about how fast Daenerys got from Dragonstone to north of The Wall?” Holt disagrees. “You have a boyish face and a big goofy grin. It’s like being yelled at by a children’s cereal mascot.” Ouch. In the end, they settle for the smart cop/dumb cop routine, and guess who plays the dumb cop.
