5. Knowing how Kevin’s friends see him

It’s hard to imagine Holt would feel inferior to his husband. They are both well-read, educated, and take pride in anything we’d probably consider upper class. However, they two had a gap between them. At least, that’s the way Holt viewed things.

There’s a moment where Holt shares how he knows Kevin’s friends see him. They view him as Kevin’s “working-class bimbo.”

It’s such a raw moment within the comedy. We get this chance to see how Holt feels inferior and puts a sense of reality to this relationship. These types of moments are important, even in comedy.

4. Dancing to ‘Push It’

We are so used to seeing Captain Holt as this stoic man, but he has a humorous side. He’s also willing to do things that he needs to make life easier for those working in his precinct.

When Amy is in labor and in pain, she needs a distraction. It comes to the leaders of the precinct to step in. Yes, Holt and Terry are the ones to help distract her. What better way than a rendition of “Push It.”

This is an underrated moment of the entire show. There are other musical moments that stand out for a lot of people, especially the “I Want It That Way” moment, but this one is just so Captain Holt, it makes it perfect and we had to include it.
