Daily Brooklyn 99 Thoughts – S3E6 Into The Woods: Jake’s turning point

“The only puzzle he hasn’t solved yet is how to grow up,” is the Serge’s assessment of Jake in the pilot episode. Jake in seasons 1 and 2 is different than Jake in seasons 3 and on. Jake grows up. He becomes kind, good, and loyal. He still acts like a goofball but he takes responsibility. I think this episode is the turning point in Jake’s maturity.

Terry tells off Jake for not taking responsibility for his actions, and Charles confronts him in a gentle and loving way, demonstrating how deeply he understands Jake and knows exactly how to get through to him.

Boyle: I think you're only 99% right.

And on the topic of masculinity and fragile heterosexuality, how awesome was this moment?

Triple-spoon like grown-ups. Terry still wakes up heterosexual and ripped in the morning so I guess men can spoon to keep warm and it doesn’t hurt their gender identity.
Also being a grown up is being able to spoon to keep warm, even though you’re mad at someone.
