Here Are 25 Times Rosa Diaz Of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Dropped The Best Lines

Just one day after being cancelled by Fox, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was saved by NBC after hoards of fans took to the Internet to rally behind it. Among those fans were Lin-Manuel Miranda and Guillermo del Toro. One of the main reasons people lost it when they heard the C-word (cancelled! Get your mind out of the gutter!)? The loss of fan favorite Rosa Diaz! Played by Stephanie Beatriz, Rosa is a tough as nails detective who takes no crap, but may be a secret softie who loves her squad.

Here are 25 of the best Rosa Diaz lines that got us feeling same or roasted!

1. Rosa Diaz on the accessories every woman needs.

“What kind of woman doesn’t have an axe?” I mean, axes do come in handy from time to time. Might be time to hit up the Home Depot!

2. On her dating style.

“I don’t ask people out. I just tell them where we’re going.” Talk about going after what she wants! No second guesses or lack of confidence. Next time I see that cutie from the hot dog cart, I’m going for it!

3. On her no holds barred interrogation tactics.

“Don’t arrest him. Just smack him. Hard. With a phone book on a body part no one can see, you know what I’m saying?” I mean, that’s one way to go about getting information you need!

4. But sometimes Rosa Diaz shows her soft side.

“I didn’t understand why people care so much about dumb dogs until I got a dumb dog myself.” If there’s anything in the world that can melt an icy cold demeanor, it’s a cute lil puppppppyyyyyyy. Who can resist a little dog face? Not Rosa!

5. On terrible, yet hot people.

“You can hate people and still think they’re hot.” Truer words have never been said. If someone is willing to embroider this on a decorative pillow, I would be willing to pay good money for it. Thanks in advance!

6. On real coolness.

When Rosa Diaz called Amy nerdy for making lists to remember all her tasks, Amy asked what her method of remembering things was. Rosa’s response? “Just forget stuff, like a cool person.” I mean, it sounds cool, but forgetting isn’t very nice.

7. On the perfect date.

“For me, cheap dinner. Watch basketball. Bone down.” Well, that does sound like a good night. I’ll give her that much.

8.  Her thoughts on chitter chatter.

“I hate small talk. Let’s drink in silence.” Listen, Rosa is the strong silent time for sure. Even though she has many zingers, and will sometimes say a few kind words, for the most part she prefers a beer and quiet.

9. Embracing her bisexuality.

When she came out to her parents about her sexuality, her father insisted there was no such thing as bisexuality. Her response: “Yes there is. I know there is because that’s who I am.” It was such a powerful moment, and made you feel so proud of Rosa for speaking her truth.

10. Her sensuous thoughts on fear.

“Fear is a powerful aphrodisiac.” Sure it can be for some, but I have a feeling for Rosa, who isn’t afraid to dropkick a drug kingpin to the ground, it’s probably got a bit more strength.

11. When her naps are interrupted.

If you wake Rosa Diaz up from a much needed and well deserved nap, well, it’s not going to go well.  “I’m gonna rip your head off.” If that isn’t one of the most relatable feelings in the world, I truly don’t know what is.

12. Her flirting style might be hard to read.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“It’s a joke. I was insulting him. You know, flirting.” Who amongst us hasn’t done the playful neg when trying to get a babe’s attention. Nobody better try that on me though! I’ll cut a b!

13. Not just anyone hears the L-word from Rosa.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“I only said ‘I love you’ to three people: my mom, my dad, and my dying grandpa, and one of those I regret.” Which one was it? “My grandpa. He beat Cancer so now I look like an idiot.” Might sound a bit harsh, but makes perfect sense when you think of Rosa’s character. She’s very reticent of her feelings.

14. When she looks through her closet…

And has to decide which one of her trademark leather jackets she’s going to wear that day, there’s one prerequisite for choosing.

“It’s the one without any blood on it.” That’s a good rule of thumb for dressing yourself.

15. How she rages.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“I’m fine at parties. I just stand in the middle of the room and don’t say anything.” So, turns out, Rosa is THAT person. To be fair, sometimes we all end up being that person. Standing there, no one to talk to, and sometimes that’s how you like it. There’s good memes to laugh at.

16. She never flakes on plans though.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

Even Rosa, who is not one for sentimentality or cozying up to friends, knows where to draw the line on rudeness. “Plans are plans. I’m a badass, not an anarchist.” She’s a real one for this. No one likes a flake.

17. When she wants all the juicy bits, but none of the boring stuff.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

You know when you’re on the phone with a friend and they’re giving you the details of their date and sometime you just want to yell “Call me if you grab each other’s asses” into the receiver? Well Rosa Diaz did that.

18. She has excellent taste in films.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“RoboCop. It’s got everything I like: gratuitous violence…” The girl has some good taste in high-brow robotic police officer movies. That can’t be denied. And I suppose the violence plays into her badassery.

19. She still has a heart.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

Just when you think Rosa might be too tough to feel like a real person, like a block of ice that just won’t melt, she comes through for her friends with these words: “We’ve gotta have each other’s backs, okay?” That’s true sisterhood, right there.

20. Rosa Diaz gives great advice on ending a dry spell.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

Sometimes when it’s been awhile since you’ve gotten some of the good-good, you gotta have a plan of action. “Fly to Montreal, check into a classy hotel, bone a stranger. Slump over.” That’ll fix it!

21. When Rosa Diaz asked the question we’ve all asked ourselves a million times.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“How do these guys do so well with women?” I mean, sometimes you look at a dude and think HOW??? Rosa is there to say it out loud for us all.

22. She knows how to land a threat.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“And when this is over, I’m going to find you, and I’m going to break those little fingers.” Granted, she said this to a court stenographer, who didn’t really deserve it, but the threat landed really well. Way to scare the hell out of people.

23. She’s down for whatever.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

When asked if she’d do a polar bear plunge in the winter she said, “It’s either that or go caroling with my family, so yeah. I’d rather walk into the freezing ocean.” Who can’t relate to that?

24. She knows what she likes.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

And that’s a burly beard. So if her dude tried to clip it or God forbid go clean shaven, well she has some choice words. “Next time I catch him shaving I’m gonna punch him so hard in the mouth that he bites his own heart.” That’s one way to voice your preferences.

25. She lands a good burn.

Credit: Brooklyn Nine-Nine / Fox

“One of you is a criminal, and the other one is dressed like Steve Harvey.” You don’t even need the visual to see the visual there. Good work, Rosa!

NO matter how tough she may seem, Rosa Diaz always comes through for her squad and looks out for the good of the city. She may not be the easiest nut to crack, but when you do you have a friend for life.

The Spanish ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ Is Being Shared To Honor Hispanic Workers Fighting COVID-19

There’s no denying that the world looks a lot different now than it did in 1947. And while the list of all of the positive changes that the decades stretching between now and then have done for the world and minorities, a recent campaign is also highlighting the ways in which our current president could take some notes on certain values the United States held dear during this time. Particularly ones that had been pressed for by one of our former presidents.

As part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Good Neighbor Policy” effort, he worked to promote positive and healthy relations between the United States in Latin American countries.

At the time Rooseveltaimed to ensure that the North, Central and South American countries avoided breaking under the influence of Axis countries during World War II. As part of this campaign, Roosevelt comissioned a Spanish and a Portuguese version of the U.S. national anthem. According to Time Magazine he also “recruited Hollywood to participate in this Good Neighbor Policy; Walt Disney went on goodwill tour of South America, hoping to find a new market for his films, and ended up producing two movies inspired by the trip: Saludos Amigos (1942) and The Three Caballeros (1944). The Brazilian star Carmen Miranda also got a boost, and her role in The Gang’s All Here made her even more famous in the U.S. And alongside these cross-cultural exchanges, the U.S. government decided it needed an anthem that could reach Spanish speakers.”

According to NPR, Clotilde Arias, wrote wrote the translation at the end of World War II, was born in the small Peruvian city, Iquitos in 1901 and moved to New York City to become a composer when she was 22-years-old. Her version of the anthem is now part of an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

Now in an effort to support Latino communities affected by the coronavirus, the non-profit We Are All Human Foundation’s Hispanic Star campaign commissioned the a remake of the song.

Hoping to raise awareness of its Hispanic Recovery Plan and efforts to help to connect Hispanic small businesses and workers with resources during the pandemic, the campaign brought the old recording from obscurity.

For the song, the 2019 winner of the singing competition La Voz,  Jeidimar Rijos, performed “El Pendón Estrellado.” Or, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” 

The song has already received quite a bit of comments and support on Youtube.

Hang in there, fam. We can only get through this together.

Thank you for all of your love & support to those who have been readers and customers of @thehoodwitch over the years. ♥️You know truly how hard I work and that this is my livelihood and culture. Visual art and magic ARE my life and practice. Not a peach flavored “turquoise” glitter drink. My magic is in my blood, my magic is in my ability to bring life to my visions, it is creation & destruction. Over the last 6 years, I have been so honored and lucky to be featured in some of the largest media publications internationally not limited to Instagram. This is bigger than that and the creative team for Starbucks knew that. I have personally worked on consulting large companies in their design concepts this work comes naturally to me. “So what’s the big fuss?” My personal style has become synonymous with the visual aesthetic of my brand. No, I absolutely did not “invent” the crystal balls nor acrylic nails but What I created was a space for myself along with other POC to feel represented and have visual imagery that was representative of us. The colorful candles of my local botanicas, my gold jewelry, and my long nails clutching my crystals are certainly not “new” but to see them presented in a manner that I shared visually in this space was. Katherine de Vos Devine @devosdevine is a lawyer and art historian who wrote a powerful and insightful look as to what exactly is happening with this situation and we are sharing it in our story today because more than anything she truly gives the full tea of the situation. I can strip away the crystal balls, the nail art, and delete all of my beautifully curated photos but I will always be me, I will always be my grandmother’s voices and wisdom. I will create, and I will always know my value and my worth. I trust and believe that my ancestors and my guides are looking after me. These giants may have the money to bully artists, creatives, and small business but we know the truth and absolutely must not allow it. As a small business owner, I appreciate you standing with us in this uphill journey and even if it goes nowhere, at the end of the day I can laugh to myself knowing that Starbucks made a drink inspired by HW 🔮

If you’re in the market for an obsidian scrying mirror, unique tarot decks or nail polish for your mystic manos, then The Hoodwitch Store is your one-stop bruja shop. Be sure to also check out the Bruja Bookshop tab, where you’ll find vintage, one-of-a-kind libros to up your witchy wisdom. The shop offers some rare finds en español as well. However, make sure you stay up to date on the latest inventory. These goods sell out fast!

4. House of Intuition

If you live in LA, you’ve most likely heard of House of Intuition. With four brick and mortar stores throughout the area, plus an online shop, it’s probably a wise investment to grab one of their “Success” intention candles. Their beautifully colored novenas aren’t the only reason to check out the shop, though. Seriously, this casa is staked with everything from crystals skulls, cauldrons and wands to a line called “Hair Mystics” featuring crystal-infused hair mists. You’ll be glad your intuition led you here.  

5. Lunar Magic Shop

Lunar Magic Shop is the super affordable and super thoughtful shop with some of our favorite bruja apparel. You will for sure want to grab the “My Mom Will Hex You” tee for the little one in your life or the “I Am My Own Sacred Place” one for yourself. While you’re at it, you might as well secure the “Motherhood”and “Student” crystal kit bags. This small shop definitely has the whole family’s brujeria needs in mind.

6. Curandera Press

While this shop is currently taking a small hiatus, they will re-launch on August 1. This gives us time to save up for a big vela haul. We could all use some divine intervention with lazy lovers and bad hair days, right? With Curandera Press’ “No Mas Amante Perezoso” and “Good Hair Day” velas, your prayers are answered. We’re excited to see what intentions they roll out next.
