Most of the main cast of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” sat down with Hulu during the filming of the final season to describe their favorite moments from the show. Melissa Fumero’s favorite moment was the rooftop scene between her and her co-star Andy Samberg. The Moment, found in Season 1 Episode 13, “The Bet,” shows Jake and Amy on a rooftop during a late-night surveillance. They spent most of the night together, having meaningful conversations about Jake’s car, nuts, and the bet they had between them. The two become friends on the rooftop, and Jake even declines Captain Holt’s offer to send other officers to relieve her so he can spend more time with Amy.
“The rooftop scene with Andy for ‘The Bet.’ It was kind of that Jake and Amy moment, and we really wanted to do it right, but we really just had fun shooting it,” Fumero recalled to Hulu. “And we just laughed so much, and it was like late at night, and we were downtown and cracking up. You know, I think those are the things I’ll remember, like the late night shoots and the weird places, and the long days but where you’re just laughing with your castmates and feeling really happy that you get to work with such fun people.”
Many of its contributors chose comedic moments or moments of cultural significance as their favorites from the show’s tenure. Fumero took a slightly different approach, choosing a moment that she not only enjoyed filming, but also played a significant role in the development of her character — and in Fumero’s relationship with her co-stars.
