When civilian administrator Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti) departs the Nine-Nine in a two-episode arc later in season six, a whole swag of sass will go with her.

Over the series run, she’s had some of the best lines – oh the magnificent self-confidence, emoji talk and sick, sick burns!

The exact nature of the sass-Queen’s departure is under wraps, but co-creator Dan Goor says the scales will “be tipped in favour of it being funny over super-emotional.” And there will be dancing.

But Goor and Peretti have indicated that this isn’t the last we’ll see of Gina, which is good because we can’t get enough of her mic-dropping quotes.

Here are some of the best...


“The English language cannot fully capture the depth and complexity of my thoughts so I’m incorporating Emoji into my speech to better express myself. Winky face.”

“Do you know how many basic bitches would kill to have the same personality as me?”

“I was born for politics. I have great hair, and I love lying.”

“Beyoncé is my spiritual twin.”

“What am I always telling you guys? I’m royalty.”

“Y’all, astronomy is kind of interesting. And I’m hella smart.”

“I feel like I’m the Paris of people.”

“She knew she would never be better than me.”

“But isn’t Gina Linetti more a state of mind?”

Sick burns

“I’mma throw a milkshake in your face.”

“Every time you talk, I hear the sound that plays when Pac-Man dies.”

“Don't steal my thing.”

“Psychologists are just people who weren’t smart enough to be psychics.”

“If I had a mic right now, I’d drop it.”

“Can you go be depressed over there? You’re bumming out my whole area.”

“You are a stone-cold atrocity.”

“But I hate you. Not joking. Bye!”

“This wasn’t an invitation to keep talking.”


“If I die, turn my tweets in to a book.”

“I would clearly be buried with my phone.”

"Honestly, I’m going to last forever."

You will Gina. You will.
