Did You Know?


At one point, the kidnapper leaves Jake alone and when he returns, Jake says he was gone for 3 hours. When the kidnapper asks how Jake could have known that, Jake says he "sang 'This Is How We Do It' 143 times."

The single version of "This Is How We Do It," by Montell Jordan, is 3:59 long (the album version runs 48 seconds longer, due to a skit attached to the end of the track, but we'll assume Jake performed only the song and did not act out the skit at the end). If someone sang the song back-to-back 143 times, it would take them 569 minutes and 37 seconds, or nearly ten hours (9 hours, 48 minutes, and 57 seconds, to be precise).

In order to fit 143 repetitions of a song into 3 hours, the song would have to be roughly 1:15.5 in length. See more »

Jake gets suspended as he failed a drug test, but urges that he has been sabotaged. Amy and Rosa are put on this assignment to confirm his innocence. Terry lies to Gina "like a pro" about going to her dance performance, but Captain Holt tells her the truth which crushes her dreams. While Jake is away, Hitchcock and Scully become Boyle's partners in a case that he thinks they are completely inept for.

Overall this was a strong episode with Terry, Hitchcock, and Scully being the source of the best humor. Terry's lies to his daughters were hilarious as well as Hitchcock and Scully proving that they are not as useless as they seem. They reveal that their real goal is to lay low and do simple work within the precinct like fill out paperwork and play minesweeper on their outdated computers. They really can solve a case and are actually good detectives after all. No doi!
