25Is “dirtbag” a compliment or an insult?
In a season 1 flashback, Holt calls the Freestyle Killer a “dirtbag,” but in a season 5 episode, he says, “A dirtbag is a very useful part of the vacuum cleaner – clearly, it’s a compliment.” So, is it a compliment or an insult?
One theory is that the younger Holt
who called the Freestyle Killer a “dirtbag” was less mature than the older Holt we see today. Plus, Kevin expresses the same views about the word “dirtbag,” so it could be that Holt has changed a lot since having Kevin in his life.
