Captain Holt Quotes To Live Your Life By.

Captain Raymond Jacob Holt is one of the funniest characters on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, his lack of emotion when he speaks is often used as  comic relief especially when he is delivering bad news. 

However, when he is not delivering bad news with no emotion, he is usually dropping jewels of knowledge, especially on correct grammar.


If you are still dieting to get that summer body, here is some advice from Captain Holt:

Quote from the episode Captain Peralta

Sergeant Jeffords: Joining us for lunch, Sir?
Captain Holt: Oh, no, I’ve already consumed the required calories for this day period.
Rosa: Yummy.

Quote from the episode Payback

Amy: Maybe we should talk about deets for the case. Plan our next move. Grab some street meat.
Holt: No need. I brought these. Nutrition bricks. I have original no flavor, and whole wheat no flavor. 

Quote from the episode Payback

Amy: Captain, how are you feeling?
Captain Holt: Better today. I even managed to eat some plain toast this morning.
Amy: Smart. Something bland.
Captain Holt: That’s my favorite breakfast.

Quote from the episode The Road Trip

Captain Holt: I have zero interest in food. If it were feasible, my diet would consist entirely of flavorless beige smoothies containing all the nutrients required by the human animal.

Being Gay:

One of the reason Brooklyn Nine-Nine is loved is because the characters defy stereotypes, Captain Holt is gay black man, who doesn’t display any of the stereotypical mannerism we are used to seeing. 

Quote from the episode Boyle-Linetti Wedding

Terry: What did the official say when you got married?
Captain Holt: Not much. When gay marriage was legalized, we’re not sure if or when it was going to be struck down, so speed was of the essence.

Quote from the episode Payback

Captain Holt: He was a great partner. Smart, loyal. Homophobic but not racist. In those days that was pretty good.


Quote from the episode 99

Jake: Hey, I’m sorry that things didn’t work out. I know you always hoped that you’d be Commissioner.
Captain Holt: No. Over the course of my career, I’ve learned that it’s best not to have hopes.
Jake: Sir, that is so sad. That’s like saying it’s best not to have dreams.
Captain Holt: I only have one dream a year, always on Tax Day. In it, I must file an extension. So, yes, it is best not to have dreams.

Quote from the episode Tactical Village

Captain Holt: There’s no such thing as a backwards ‘w’.

Quote from the episode Game Night

Captain Holt: Diaz, you should be very proud of yourself. I know things aren’t exactly where you wanna be right now, but, uh, I promise you they will improve.
Rosa: Thank you, Captain.
Captain Holt: Every time someone steps up and says who they are, the world becomes a better, more interesting place. So thank you.

And finally my favourite…

Captain Holt: Sarcasm is the coward’s lie.
