You are watching: Brooklyn nine-nine season 6 episode 3
Back at the precinct, Holt is fully invested in the crinkle game. They have decided that the sound must be a yogurt being opened, and Terry is on the phone waiting to give his answer. Unfortunately, they are wrong. It turned out to be a bag of potato chips being opened (which was Hitchcock’s first guess). Holt is disappointed but admits, “I enjoyed myself. I can’t wait to go home and tell Kevin, ‘You can have fun, without being productive.’”
Rosa answered all three hundred and nine of Boyle’s questions but her two partners (dubbed “Couscous” and “Quinoa”) are still dead even. So Boyle hoists her upside down so that “all the blood can rush to her decision center,” in a pose that his family calls “the upside down coward.” This doesn’t work either, but the long process and Rosa’s refusal to choose has left one of her partners so frustrated that they break up with her, making the choice for her. Boyle claims this as a victory for his method.
At the reunion, Peralta and Santiago have broken into the administrative offices of the school and are digging through the old attendance files on the school computer, in an attempt to find which football player had class with Bliss and told him that Peralta was the snitch. (Peralta’s perfect attendance gets Santiago very……excited.) Once they find him, they drag him into a classroom full of science projects and interrogate him. He claims that he witnessed Peralta tell the principal and describes the exact outfit that Peralta was wearing. Peralta then realizes who the real “Tattler” is — it’s Gina. (After all, Peralta “stole” Gina’s whole look junior year, right down to the long hair and earring.)
Peralta confronts Gina just as she has made an agreement with Quentin, sabotaging her newfound success. She tells him that she told on Bliss to save Peralta’s future, because he was becoming close with a bad group of guys, and if she hadn’t intervened and they had gotten caught stealing a school van, Peralta would not be a cop today. She says that she is responsible for his “origin story” and that the only reason she did not confess sooner was because she did not want her best friend to be mad at her. (And she did not want everyone at school to call her a “Tattler.”)
Peralta and Gina make up, and then Peralta goes to Quentin to convince him to still work with Gina. Unfortunately, it turns out that Quentin was also lying like Gina was, and he cannot actually invest in her app.

Peralta tells Gina that it is now his turn to be her “origin story” and that she has outgrown the Nine-Nine — she needs to quit, so that she can pursue her larger dreams and ideas. She decides that she will.
And so we must begin saying our heartfelt goodbyes to “one of the greats,” Gina Linetti!
(Chelsea Peretti announced in October of 2018 that she would be leaving the show after six episodes in the sixth season but that she would be back occasionally for guest appearances.)
