Episode Synopsis[]

After Jake injures himself on a case, Terry forces him to take time off and rest, something Jake doesn’t know how to do. Across town, Holt and Rosa try to avoid intimate conversation during a double-date with their significant others.


Jake and Boyle pursue a perp as he runs above the cars. Jake runs as well, and falls on a car, injuring himself. Back in the precinct, Jake is told by Terry to go home and rest while he is healing.

After a few days, Jake and Boyle depart for Atlantic City to take vacations on a four-star hotel. Calling the trip: Atlantic City/Dudes Club. However, once they arrive, Jake reveals to Boyle they're following the perp, much to his disappointment. Jake then renames the trip Atlantic City/Detectives Club. A few hours later, Terry shows up in the hotel, as Boyle informed him. Then, they find the perp and go after him. However, Jake is hit by the incoming police cruiser, injuring himself severely. At the hospital, Jake explains to Terry that the reason why he can't leave the case open is because he blames himself for stopping working on a case while he went out with some friends, resulting in the death of two civilians. After some advice, Jake decides to rest and departs with Boyle to Atlantic City to make up for their promise.

Holt tells Rosa that Kevin wants to set up dinner to meet her and Marcus. Fearing the dinner may go awry, Holt invites Amy and Gina to the dinner as well. However, their subway train is delayed and they fail to get to the dinner and both decide to get drunk. In the dinner, Rosa leaves abruptly, telling Holt she fears she may be pregnant and the dinner ends. The next day, Rosa reveals to Holt she isn't pregnant and thanks him for the dinner.
