“The only thing I’m not good at is modesty, because I’m great at it”

"But then, I鈥檓 good at everything....Except modesty. Subtlety too” is a joke that was posted on the newsgroup alt.teens.intelligent.insanity on July 27, 2000. “I am so incredibly good at everything. Except modesty” was posted on Twitter by Gerald McGlaughlin馃嵑 on March 10, 2012. “I’m good at everything except modesty” was posted on Twitter by itsPhil on September 16, 2014.

The American television police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, on the episode “DFW” that originally aired on April 15, 2018, had this line spoken by Gina Linetti (played by Chelsea Peretti):

“The only thing I’m not good at is modesty, because I’m great at it.”

“DFW” is the 17th episode of the fifth season of the American television police sitcom series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and the 107th overall episode of the series.
