Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans were shocked to learn of the death of Andre Braugher at the age of 61. Initially, reports said that he died after a short illness, and now we’ve learned he died after a short battle with lung cancer.

Braugher is known for multiple guest and starring roles in TV. His role as Captain Holt is one of the biggest, bring in every episode of the FOX and NBC cop comedy series. He came into the first episode as the new captain of the Nine-Nine, making it look like he would be a hard man to impress. It was quickly clear that he was someone who wanted to make the precinct something they could all be proud of, but also harness their individual skills and abilities.

Over the course of eight seasons, we watched him become a father figure to many of the Nine-Nine family. He also proved himself to be a conflicted man when it came to his position as a Black gay man in a position of power. This helped to bring up a lot of debate as the show focused on some important topics for the world today.

As we pay tribute to Braugher, we’re taking a look at Captain Holt’s 10 best moments throughout Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

10. His reaction to Rosa’s suggestion for the problems

Holt and Kevin weren’t without their marital problems. In fact, the whole final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine had us worried that this couple would permanently break up. That would have been heartbreaking but, spoiler, things worked out!

At one point when arguing, the team offers suggests to help with the situation. Rosa tells them that they should “just bone.”

For most people, that would be a suggestion either taken on board or a suggestion quickly ignored. In this case, we got multiple moments of Holt interrupting everyone with “Bone!” at the audacity of the suggestion. This is not a word that Holt likes!
