**Contains spoiler for Brooklyn 99 S2E20 and S3E5**
The squad varies in their ability to cope with accidentally saying something inappropriate. Captain Holt is a master. In the midst of the Halloween Heist, completely caught up in the intensity of the competition, he explains to Amy why a camera would be hidden in her breasts that “The cleavage hides the camera!” and as she is leaving his office he says, without missing a beat, “I’m sorry I said cleavage.”
Holt: Sorry I said cleavage.
This is important. It was uncomfortable in the moment, but he apologized right away, leading me to believe that Amy’s discomfort did not linger further than that moment in his office. He messes up in the episode with Rosa’s pregnancy scare as well, but he acknowledges the awkwardness, accepts her request to stop pointing at it, and they both move on and agree never to talk about it again. He makes his intentions clear and when he is inappropriate, he owns it and apologizes. #likeacaptain #holt #metoo #rolemodels
