Detective Norm Scully is a older male detective at Precinct 99. His partner is Hitchcock who is equally lazy.


Scully can sing opera.[1] He has a wife and a dog, one of which is named Kelly. He has two children who he says no longer speak to him.

Season One Edit

Scully is introduced during the Pilot. Sargent Terry Jeffords states to Captain Holt that they're bad detectives, but they make good coffee.

In The Party, Scully reveals that he met his wife on the street as she was leaving an orgy. He also sings opera for the party guests and Hitchcock, leading the guests to believe that they're in a relationship. One of the guests even asks if they get harassed for being an openly gay couple in the Nine-Nine who work together.

It's shown how bad Scully and Hitchcock are at their jobs during The Apartment where it's revealed that, in a year, they had made fourteen arrests between them. Captain Holt wasn't happy with that number, but Terry points out that it's 'six more than last year'. In comparison, Jake alone made seventy-eight arrests. Despite this, they're kept around.

He has had 3 heart attacks during a year in his life where he supposedly did drugs. He has had a pacemaker fitted.

Nobody at the precinct knows if Kelly is his dog or his wife due to the way he describes her, and neither is it revealed.

Season Two Edit

During The Jimmy Jab Games, Scully is seen in the morning meeting with his flask. Jake uses Scully to invent the monster mouth bagel toss (throwing bagel pieces into Scully's mouth while he's napping). Scully does his opera singing 'Jimmy Jab' during the short opening ceremony, wearing a scarf and holding a hockey stick. During the first contest, eating month old Chinese food, Scully eats the most food, saying 'you know this is free, right?' He then quickly develops food poisoning and has to drop out of the competition, beating only Boyle.

At the beginning of Halloween II, Jake doesn't give him or Hitchcock a code names in order to prevent confusing them. However, Scully was on Holt's team and dressed up as a bear with Hitchcock in order to separate him to Boyle as well as steal his wallet. Using his phone, he records Jake saying 'Captain Holt, you are an amazing detective slash genius'.

Lt. Andrew Miller from Internal Affairs arrives in The Mole, trying to find the unit's mole. He calls Scully up to talk to him. Scully stands up, with a napkin tucked into his jumper; it's covered in sauce, as well as it being around his mouth from the sandwich that he was eating at the time. Miller, being a germaphobe, decides to do the interview over the phone after taking one look at the messy Scully. He also announced to Holt that his dog has taken over his favourite chair.

In Captain Peralta it is revealed that his parents left him at the Louvre in Paris when he was 9, and they didn't notice until they had returned to Queens. In the time he was there, he learned French.

In The Funeral, he receives a text from his wife saying that she's leaving him.

Season Three Edit

In House Mouses Hitchcock and Scully are put on a drug case by Jake Peralta so he can solve another case with an oboeist. During their case, it turns into the biggest drug bust the Nine-Nine has ever had. Hitchcock and Scully's plan was to go undercover as Tex Dallas and Rino Vegas, mobsters with connections to the cowboy mafia who work for the Dallas Buyers Club, their plan was called "Operation Beans". The drug ring doesn't buy it, causing Terry Jeffords and Jake Peralta to save them, this fails. Hitchcock and Scully then escape by using Hitchcock's chair abilities to roll up the stairs, tripping one of the guys that has them hostage, Scully then rips off the duct tape due to the amount of sweat he has and gives a gun to Terry, letting them escape. They are both awarded new chairs to keep them at their desks.
