Rosa: Come on, Peralta! Holt said to use the whole team. We all want this solved.
Jake: I appreciate the offer, but I work best alone. Except when it comes to sex. Actually, sometimes including sex. [1]

Jake Peralta: So... Jimmy Jabs, huh? What do you say we make it interesting this year? Aha! We can play for Katie's number.
Rosa Diaz: No. Is this why you wanted to do Jimmy Jabs?
Jake Peralta: No. Yes. Why, what gave it away?
Rosa Diaz: You said "aha" and snapped your fingers. [2]

Rosa: Or you didn't pay your bills and you only put a quarter-gallon of gas in your tank because you wanted to spend the rest on mini-mart beef jerky.
Jake: Wrong. I buy my beef jerky online from the world's top jerkmaster. So it looks like you need to update your jerk rolodex, which is not as dirty as it sounds. [3]

Jake Peralta: Sure hope I don't sprain my arm during the race. 'cause I'm gonna be opening up a lot of doors for Katie on our date. Oh yeah, I'm gonna be a gentleman.
Rosa Diaz: What are you doing, Jake?
Jake Peralta: Trash talking you. While simultaneously proving that I will be respectful of your friend, it's a tough line to walk.[4]

Jake and Rosa hug

Rosa Diaz: You spent the whole day flirting with Amy.
Jake Peralta: Yeah, we're joking around because we're friends now that I've moved on.
Rosa Diaz: Then prove it. Beat Amy and don't flirt with her at all.
Jake Peralta: Fine, easy. But you better tell Katie to clear out her schedule out Thursday for a date, 'cause I'm working nights until then and the following weekend I am out of town, let's do this. [5]

Jake Peralta: I've been thinking about asking her out for the last couple of weeks, but it's hard. There's so much build up now, you know?
Rosa Diaz: Not really. I don't ask people out, I just tell them where we're going. [6]

Rosa Diaz: You should've told him to back off.
Jake Peralta: I can't go around telling guys not to ask Amy out because I like her and I'm too dumb to do anything about it. I can't make a woman's choice for her, I stand with Wendy. Did I do that right?
Rosa Diaz: No.
Jake Peralta: Oh. [7]

Jake Peralta: I know those categories. You guys are talking dates. Here's what you do. Invite him over, order some fancy take out, throw it in a pot, and act like you cooked it. I got the idea from Yahoo! Answers.
Rosa Diaz: Dude, I'm not gonna buy a pot. We're not married.

Jake Peralta: A thousand push-ups.
Rosa Diaz?: A thousand push-ups, really?
Jake Peralta': Yes. [8]
