Brooklyn Nine-Nine Wiki

Kelly is Norm Scully's ex-wife. She shares a name with Scully's dog, also named Kelly.

Throughout the Series[]

Season One[]

In The Ebony Falcon, Jake mentions that he doesn't know whether Kelly is Scully's wife or dog. The others admit that they don't either and decide to ask Scully questions to find out. They ask him a series of questions but he responds ambiguously and nobody can tell whether he is talking about his wife or dog. Finally Jake asks him outright whether Kelly is his dog or wife. Scully is offended and leaves but the rest of the precinct still doesn't know which one she is.

Scully is either her husband or owner. If she is his wife, their relationship is shown to be poor as Scully says that his wife called him a 'zero in the sack'.

Season Three[]

In The Funeral (S3 EP2), While Terry is telling the squad to act sad, Scully looks up while crying and reveals his wife just texted that she is leaving him.

Season Five[]

In Show Me Going, Scully mentions he woke up with his dog's butthole on his mouth.

Season Seven[]

In Pimemento, Scully reveals that Kelly was his wife, and that he also has a dog named Kelly, thus still sustaining the ambiguity of the answer to the question.
