precinct. This mostly consists of her making Amy drink cement.

Added DiffLines:

* SwappedRoles: Boyle and Peralta have to make the best of their last case. Even if it is just a minor drug case, they're absolutely going back to back with their guns drawn. While Boyle is usually the one with inappropriately sexual names for things, which Peralta chides him for, in this case it's the other way around:
-->'''Jake:''' You know what I call that?\\
'''Charles:''' The Bullet Tornado.\\
'''Jake:''' ''[at the same time]'' The Man Sprinkler. Yep, Bullet Tornado.\\
'''Charles:''' What was yours? I didn't hear it.\\
'''Jake:''' Same as you. Bullet Tornado. The important thing is we don't have to talk about it anymore 'cause we both said the same excellent name.


* {{Adorkable}}: Amy is over the moon in realizing that Holt will now openly be her mentor and even reveals that she is a skilled stenographer in order to better take in the captain's teachings.

Added DiffLines:

* BeingGoodSucks: Jake and Charles end up stumbling onto a huge drug case that could save the Nine-Nine, but in the process of performing recon on a high-level supplier, they learn that the kingpin of the entire drug ring will be arriving, allowing them to potentially topple the entire organization. The only issue is that the kingpin won't arrive until ''after'' the decision to close the Nine-Nine has been finalized. Jake and Charles realize that they'll have to forgo saving the Nine-Nine and do their jobs instead.


Added DiffLines:

* InnocentInnuendo: In a truly hilarious role reversal, ''Jake'' calls his idea of him and Charles standing back-to-back while shooting their guns the lame and vaguely sexual-sounding "Man Sprinkler" while Boyle comes up with the badass-sounding "Bullet Tornado." Unlike Charles, however, Jake immediately realizes that Charles's name is way better and vehemently denies ever calling it the Man Sprinkler.
** Also in the episode, Charles referrers to the tactical gear as "toys for boys," "adult toys," "male toys" and "playthings."
* KarmicJackpot: Related to "BeingGoodSucks" above, because Jake and Charles decided to forgo saving the Nine-Nine to instead secure the arrest a big-time Drug Kingpin, Holt gives a RousingSpeech to the detectives, lauding Jake and Charles for their decision to put serving the community above their desire to prevent the precinct from getting shut down. Gina just so happened to be live streaming at that particular moment as part of her prank show, and the video of Holt's speech ends up going viral, leading to a massive groundswell of support for the Nine-Nine, which ends up pressuring the higher-ups to close a different precinct instead. So not only do Jake and Charles secure a ''massive'' drug bust, but they also end up saving the Nine-Nine anyway.


* BackToBackBadasses: In combination with GunsAkimbo, referred to as "Bullet Tornado" by Boyle. And Jake, too, obviously, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not that he ever called it "Man Sprinkler" or whatever, and definitely not so much that Rosa knew he called it "Man Sprinkler."]] Subverted in the fact that Jake and Charles are doing it ''after'' the raid has been completed and all the perps are handcuffed and ESU can only stare at them.
* HideYourPregnancy: This episode is where Chelsea Peretti's pregnancy became noticeable on screen and the show uses the standard tight framing and loose sweaters to mask it. Also, because Gina is Gina, she stands in weird positions to distract from her belly.

In a desperate bid for a last-minute reprive, Jake and Boyle volunteer to go on the one reported case available to the precinct: the theft of a kid's bicycle. As this is potentially the last time the two of them might be working a case together, they decide to check things off their case work bucket list (sliding over the car hood, back-to-back gun poses, etc.).
