Aura Recognize Aura

This week I’m posting a non-topical entry, but Christycash has some commentary on 57 just below, while Shoals is working up something for later today or tomorrow. If you’re coming to us from 56 read on and then look HERE.

A while back I was asked to contribute to an article for Vibe magazine concerning The Wire. I opted to work on the top ten moments section of the article, the final cut of which is in this month’s issue. An earlier version of the article focused on some of the smaller, more discrete moments that I felt defined the type of narrative, characterization, and approach that made the show so unique. Following are a few of those entries.

Please go out and buy the new issue of Vibe (they don’t have the piece online). It’s the issue with 50 Cent and Bobby DeNiro on the cover, and the Wire article features stellar work from Chris Ryan and Sean Fennessey. Then you throw in Boylan and it’s a real Irishfest. Anyway, enjoy these, and check out the rest on newsstands now.

The big blockbuster scenes are easy: Stringer’s killing, D’Angelo teaching chess, Michael giving in to Marlo. The Wire’s season-ending montages are similarly ripe, laden with irony, fate, implication, and deep-rooted emotion. But the program isn’t formula television, so its secrets lie as much, if not more, in smaller moments, the spaces between gunshots and shouts when characters exhale and define themselves in less conspicuous ways.

Night at the Cinema
Bodie, Poot run into Herc, Carver, and Dozerman at the movies
Season 3 – Episode 2 (27) – All Due Respect
Cops and corner boys meet coming out of the movies on a Saturday night and coolly acknowledge one another. Bodie and his friends explain to their dates that these are the police officers who harass them daily, but never can catch them dirty. The corner boys are in on the joke that they and the police officers are peers. But all Herc, Carver and Dozerman can do is gape and fidget, until finally Bodie just says “See you tomorrow.”

Stringer’s Rules
“Is you taking notes on a criminal fuckin’ conspiracy?”
Season 3 – episode 5 (30) – Straight And True
Shamrock, ever the dutiful assistant to Stringer Bell, follows Robert’s Rules of Order at Bell’s business-school-inspired meetings of the Barksdale crew. So when Bell, Prop Joe and the rest of the city’s major dealers hold their first powwow to consolidate distribution and minimize conflicts, Sham takes minutes. Stringer unleashes the line above on Sham, pointing out that records are not needed here.

Sketched
Michael cuts out on Cutty
Season 4 – episode 4 (41) – Refugees
Cutty runs a modest boxing gym (thanks to the generous sponsorship of Avon Barksdale), and takes his star pupils Justin and Michael out to the armory fights one night. Dropping off Justin first, Cutty turns to ask Michael where he lives, but before he can, Michael is out the door and walking off into the night. Cutty seems confused, but we see something of the inner terror in Michael and his distrust of all adults and suspicion of anyone looking to lend a hand.

Guy Noir
Bodie doesn’t understand the radio
Season 2 – episode 1 (14) – Ebb Tide
While in a van driving to Philadelphia to pick up a new drug shipment, the radio station starts to go out. Bodie’s vanmate Dragon tells him to find a Philly station, to which he replies “The radio in Philly is different?” Having never been out of Baltimore, the street-wise Bodie never knew radio varied. Dragon flips through stations, but Bodie is impatient, so they settle, amazingly, on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion, before Bodie exclaims “Why would anybody want to leave Baltimore?”

Domestic
Bernard is harassed by Squeek for traveling so much
Season 3 – episode 7 (32) – Back Burners
These two might be the best tandem on the whole show. Bernard is a Barksdale man in charge of supplying the whole crew with disposable “burner” cell phones. He buys them, a few at a time, on long road trips way outside Baltimore accompanied by Squeak, his shrill, shrewish girlfriend. She belittles him, hilariously, and tells him it would be easier to buy in bulk. He finally does, mostly just so she’ll shut up, and consequently makes the police investigation a lot easier.

Run and Gun
The basketball game
Season 1 – episode 9 – Game Day
Prop Joe and Avon each support a team in a community basketball game. Having secured the services of a top Juco player (for $20,000) for his squad, Avon is confident enough to accept doubling up on a bet over the game with Prop Joe for $100,000. Joe, in a giant suit with a tie clip and a clipboard, brings in a ringer of his own after the double-up “proposition” has been accepted, and steals the game, and the bet, right out from under Avon.

Kidz
Randy Changing shirts to sell candy.
Season 4 – episode 4 (41) – Refugees
Chaos reigns in Prez’s class, so Randy slips out to his locker where he changes his eighth grade uniform polo for that of a sixth grader. Using a stolen hall pass (another result of Prez’s classroom chaos), he heads to the sixth grade lunch to sell snacks out of his bag. It’s the perfect distillation of his Randy-ness. He’s just a kid still, rebelling with a hustle that, at heart, is pretty innocent.

Doing Dirt
Bunk burning pants to destroy evidence
Season 1 – Episode 8 – Lessons
McNulty makes it an early night, but Bunk does not. Jimmy must respond to a late night call to bail out his very drunk, marble-mouthed friend. Bunk is found sprawled in the bathroom of his one-night stand wearing a pink bathrobe and necktie, chomping on a cigar, having attempted to burn his own clothes in her bathtub (to destroy the trace evidence and cover up any incriminating, uh, smells). Jimmy lets the Bunk sleep it off in the (wokka wokka) bunk bed he built for his kids.

  1. PJ Says:

    Great idea, and great choices– with one exception (of course): Squeek has always struck me as, if not Exhibit A, then Exhibit B or C in the case against The Wire’s rendering of female characters. Not because she’s negatively drawn, but because she’s unimaginatively drawn. She’s the classic, obvious nag– and, as is typical in The Wire (which obviously I love, by and large), the male character is more sympathetic, even though it’s the woman who can actually afford the car and drives him around to provide assistance. David Simon loves the moment when Bernard says, “I can’t wait to go to jail,” but that seems like a pretty tired joke to me.

    Anyway, like I said, great idea for a piece, and, by and large, great choices. I agree that these are the kinds of moments that really make the show as great as it is.

  2. jetsetjunta Says:

    That’s definitely more than a fair point. I would say, in defence of the choice, only that while Squeek is certainly little more than a caricature (and not a very imaginitive one, even), Bernard is not any better, and I like their pantomime I guess just for the bare (and yes, kinda cheap) comedy of it. That said, I always felt far more sympathy for Squeek since Bernard is obviously a total loser.

  3. MJ Says:

    D’Angelo teaching chess is one of my favorite scenes. Ever. Of all my television viewing life, not just this show.

  4. Mal Says:

    Personally, I always liked the fact that this is supposedly a drug-dealing gangster, the toughest of the tough, and yet he’s more concerned with stopping his girl from nagging him. Could you picture Stringer, Marlo, even Cheese say, being worn down so much? Just pointing out that there’s always one weak link in the chain.

    And if you look at it as purely a joke “I can’t wait to go to Jail” is pretty lame, but think – the guy has been arrested, charged, sent to prison, and still his girl is by his side nagging him. Why didn’t he just dump her? Tell her they aren’t an item any more? Because he’s too weak to think for himself in any situation. These gangsters are, on at least one level, as weak minded as any other man out there.

    Likewise, Squeek is happy to bitch at him all the time, so why doesn’t she get someone else? Is she scared of him? No. Neither of them can think beyond their relationship. they’ll do their time, come out, and be straight back in the same groove. Compared to, say, D’Angelo or Dukie, who dream of a life beyond what they can reach, these two are stuck, dragging each other down forever.

  5. The Hypnotoad Says:

    My favorite scenes from each season:

    Season 1: After Barksdales crew has been sentenced to prison, Jimmy only looks on, a little shellshocked, and sees nothing but young black people going to jail. “Jesus, what the fuck did i do?” Bunk then pats him on the back knowlingly and says “You happy now, bitch?”

    Season 2: Serge’s interrogation by Freamon and i think it was Bunk. After they play the infamous “Did he have hands?” audiotape, Serge knows he’s done. He goes into an explanation of why they killed the shepard, but finishes with “HE HAD TO DIE!”

    Season 3: Definetly Bodie coming to Stringer to explain Hamsterdam. And Stringer listening sceptically, thinking Bodie was wired, and only replying “Yeah, well, you shouldn’t sell drugs.”

    Season 4: Kenard’s trashtalking of the cops after Namonds corner gang gets busted by the cops. That white cop with the terrible haircut picks up Kenard by the collar and Kenard proceeeds to trash around cursing and yelling at the cops “Let me go! I aint afraid mothafucka!”

    Season 5: Maybe its cause i hadn’t heard the song in a while but the scene with Jimmy talking to Alma and Templeton at the bar with “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” playing in the background just struck a chord with me. Especially the part when Jimmy is contemplating telling the reporters about the bite marks. He gets his drink from the bar, takes a swig, looks down, then dives headfirst into what he knows will blow up the investigation onto the public. Meanwhile that awesome bridge guitar solo starts playing at that moment. It just worked for me.

  6. Joe Crawford Says:

    Season 1: Old Cases: the scene with Bunk and McNulty investigating Dierdre’s murder and using only the F word to punctuate their thoughts. The revelation of them “figuring it out” is really wonderful and probably qualifies as real po-lice work.

  7. bleacherbreaker Says:

    The opening scene of the entire series is still my favorite. Why? I can’t really peg it. Maybe it’s the dialouge, maybe it’s the fact that it really happened in Simon’s book “Homocide”, but I just found it very profound and ironical.

    “Well if Snot Boogie always took the money, why’d you let him play?”
    “You got to man, it’s America.”

    McNulty just leans back and takes it in as the camera fades away and we see the flashing police lights reflections off the street puddles.

  8. dronkmunk Says:

    The Herc and Carver “shaft scene is one of my favorites. “Who is the man who would put his life on the line for another man?’ Oh, and of course Gus Triandos.

  9. Mark Says:

    This show is so difficult to choose a favorite scene since, like many would agree, its the nuance and subtleties that make it such a well made drama. Arguably my favorite scene of the series, however, harkens back to that chess scene, but it was when Bodie recollected the pawn metaphor with McNulty while they ate lunch at the end of season 4. It made that chess scene in season one even more poignant; all three of those playing (D’Angelo, Wallace and then Bodie) fell victim to the game in the very way they were being taught how to strategically make it to the top. On some fanboy level, I really liked how the series seemed to come full circle in a very concise way. It was also one of the scene where you had the sinking realization that Bodie was done for.

    Now, as for the quintessential Wire scene, I think bleacherbreaker has it pegged. The same way every opening scene for every season has defined the overarching theme for that season, that scene I would argue, more so than any other, has defined what this show has to say. And yes, the non-fiction Homicide reference helped out.


  10. It was really sad for me when Dukie gave Prez that pen/pencil set. “For your desk.” Oh man. I’m gonna cry.

  11. Gourmet Spud Says:

    Fantastic list. I always loved the scene where Daniels drops off Wallace and at his grandmother’s in the country, and Wallace hears crickets for the first time, for the same reason I loved Bodie not understanding the radio.

  12. Cranky Says:

    Joe Crawford hits one outta the park! That was THE best scene evah!!

  13. Steve Lieber Says:

    This is hugely, appallingly geeky of me, but I’ve started posting drawings of some beloved Wire moments on my art studio’s sketchblog. First one up is a favorite from this season:
    http://periscopestudio.com/?p=543

  14. Simon's bitch Says:

    All good choices. Every episode has at least one great scene in it.

    Season 4 opener, with Snoop buying the Hilti would be one of my favorite all time scenes.

    The scenes immediately following Kima’s shooting will always give me chills. I imagine it’s a lot like that when a police gets shot.

  15. hello Says:

    Omar & Bunk on the bench, when Omar almost cries. beautiful dialogue, acting, photography, and themes.

  16. Derms Says:

    I love the show and almost every scene. But because I am an 8th Grade teacher, one of my faves is when Randy does his thing at the dice game to make the money for the candy. When the cat comes up to him and asks where he learned how to shoot dice like that he just gives that million dollar smile and says, “Tillman Middle.” I love that shit

  17. The Hypnotoad Says:

    How bout the Worse Scenes in the Wire where you’re just like, “oh that was cheesey”:

    Season 1: while its great for nudie material, the lesbian scene after Jimmy shows up at kimas place looking for a booty call initially had me thinking hbo was going to turn the wire into another one of its sex programs. And you have to admit, i’m pretty sure every single episode of the wire’s first two seasons had a fight scene and a nudie scene. Almost like HBO required that shit.

    Season 2: The fake western showdown between Lester and the FBI agents. Puh-leaze.

    Season 3: Carver getting on top of the car and screaming for those hoppers him and Herc were chasing in, i think, the first episode of the season. That was lame.

    Season 4: Namond, during one of the special classes with Bunny and the university guy, walking around the class saying that grownups and teachers were hypocrites for telling kids not to do what they do. It just seemed fake to me. Though Bunny’s lesson of seeing all the corner kids to come up with the same set of rules for streets was deep.

    Season 5: When Carcetti and his aids were in their office thinking of ways to please their big supporters and that little white dude that follows Carcetti around said something about routeing funding to whatever. He just looked like a nancy boy prick right after that. Also in the first ep of that season all the cops were in sitting around talking about how the job sucked but it just seemed like they were repeating stuff the show has already gone over, with too many uses of the word “fuck”, not that i’m against that it just seemed off. It made me question my love for the wire for a nanosecond but then i forgave.

  18. John John Says:

    The Hypnotoad,

    Why is it that you always have the least insightful and most off the mark analysis on this blog? Go jump off something, far from the ground below.

  19. billypilgrim Says:

    To add to your Guy Noir moment, when Bodie, on the way back from Philly, chooses hilariously to tune into yet another episode of Prairie Home Companion.

  20. price of the brickckkk Says:

    the scene in season 4 where the kid tells prez to tickle his nuts and prez has to keep himself from laughing has always been one of my favorites

  21. Anthony Says:

    In the Guy Noir moment, that’s Shamrock riding with Bodie. Who is Dragon? But good job, though.

  22. jetsetjunta Says:

    You know, I too thought that was Sham, but when I went back and read the episode guide it says the following:

    “Bodie, who’s never been outside Baltimore, travels to Philadelphia to pick up fresh drugs with a new Barksdale lieutenant named Dragon.”

    Perhaps I got mixed up somehow on the ride they were taking, or when the scene goes down.

  23. g Says:

    There’s many scenes too numerous to mention, but recently I’ve been thinking about something in Season 3 – The scene between McNulty and D’Agostino in episode 11 when she invites hm to dinner and tries to find out information about Colvin. McNulty sees through it. The acting in that scene by Dominic West is just brilliant. The scene is just brilliant.

  24. Brian V Says:

    I really like the Once Upon a Time in the West-esque scene at the end of Season 3 when Mouzone finally finds Omar, who is carrying his laundry through an alley. Anyone who’s read George Pelecanos knows he loves his westerns, so it was no surprise to see him listed as writer of that episode.

  25. AB Says:

    A couple that I’m surprised haven’t been mentioned:

    The scene at the hospital after Kima gets shot, when Rawls tells McNulty it’s not on him.

    (Probably my favorite) D’Angelo not wanting anything to do with Stringer when he comes to see him in jail. The “Where’s Wallace?” screams gave me chills just now as I typed it. One of the most moving scenes I’ve ever watched on any show or movie.

    One more I really liked: there’s a scene in Season 1 where McNulty and Pearlman meet with Levy, and McNulty does something to piss Rhonda off (I believe he threatened Levy with an investigation into his finances, and a totally caught off-guard Rhonda is forced to go along) because it affects her career aspirations and relations with other attorneys, and she scolds him for it. Angry and disgusted at how careers and politics get in the way of the case, McNulty spouts off about how “Everyone gets paid, and everyone says friends”

  26. Jack Says:

    Season 3 – Herc tells Carver his fantasy about Dozerman’s girlfriend baking a cake (“That’s no way to stir a batter”). I guess it’s part of the overall Gus Triandos bit.


  27. Season 2 – McNulty driving piss-drunk, takes the turn and sideswipes the bridge pillar, and sees it as a challenge. Backs up and wrecks the car for real. Ends up screwing the diner waitress and waking up to see he’s bled all over her bed. Glorious.

  28. Martin Says:

    A beautiful moment for me was the little homage to John Woo in”Middle Ground.” When Omar and Brother Mouzone corner Stringer, just as Omar walks through the doorway, a little flock of doves fly through around and past him.

    For those who aren’t familiar with Woo, that’s a signature image of the hero in almost every movie he’s done, from “The Killer” to “Mission: Impossible II.” It was a lovely shot, and a nice reminder that Omar is designed to be the archetypal loner action hero from soup to nuts.

  29. anonymous Says:

    Herc: You know what fat fingers mean?

    No response from other cops who act as though they didn’t hear. So Herc repeats himself.

  30. Stumbleweed Says:

    The McNulty-Bodie bit at the end of Season 4 (the whole thing, from the laketrout shop to the bench later) is my favorite. “You’re a soldier, Bodie.” “Damn right.”

    The rest:

    Frank going back to work at the docks to restore normalcy

    Snoop buying the nailgun

    McNulty/Bunk solving the window shooting in the first season wordlessly

    The Omar-Mouzone standoff

    Omar blasting through the glass at whatshisface’s store and then making the heist “You see the look on his mug? That’s why we get up in the morning.”

    Dukie fanning the girl after the face-slashing and then giving her the fan he worked to fix

    Bubs seeing Hamsterdam… just sort of watching in disbelief

    Prop Joe dressed ‘like Pat Riley’ at the basketball game, Avon giving him shit for it

    The Stringer/Avon scene on the balcony — heavy as fuck.. “Always.”

    Heartbreaking moments like Randy/Carver “you gonna help me?”, Wallace’s death, D’Angelo “Where’s Wallace”, etc. are all great… but so god damn hard to watch, even now.

  31. Iggy Says:

    Season 1: Bodie, Poot and Wallace eating burgers in Ep 12.

    Season 2: Nicky, when confessing to police, noticing the picture of Horseface on the board and lying casually, I don’t see why you’ve got Horse on there, he ain’t got nothing to do with it. It really highlighted the depth of the union loyalty.

    Season 3: Major Colvin getting all the hoppers together in a gym to tell them about Hamsterdam. A prelude to Season 4 really.

    Season 4: Andre explaining to Marlo how the govt bailed out Delta Airlines when they were in financial trouble. Marlo: “You ain’t no Delta Airlines. You just a nigga who got his shit took.”

    Season 5: Burrell stalking silently around Daniels with his golf club.

  32. Ben Says:

    Wee-Bay: Saying he’ll confess to more murders for another sandwich “extra horseradish”, a throwback to a scene earlier in a diner where he puts way too much hot sauce on his sandwich. No other show would bother to incorporate a side-players penchant for hot food.

    Wee-Bay: Finally giving it to De’Londa “Who the fuck you think you talkin to?” I bet damn near everyone was cheering when she finally got her comeuppance.

    Clay Davis: The absurdly long “shee-it” when Sydnor serves him.

    Snoop and Chris gunning after Michael, then realizing it’s practice. The Wire almost never plays tricks on its’ viewers (though this season seems to be doing it a lot) so I certainly thought Michael was dead meat.

    Every scene with Snoop, Poot, Wee-Bay, Prop Joe, Clay Davis, the Deacon, and Brother Mouzone

  33. King of Diamonds Says:

    It’s been awesome recalling each and every scene mentioned here. Wow there are SO MANY it’s incredible the depth of the show.

    It wasn’t at a very important scene but I loved when Stringer is taking that Econ class at the Community College. So cool.

  34. Rachel Says:

    It wasn’t at a very important scene but I loved when Stringer is taking that Econ class at the Community College. So cool.
    What about when Stringer goes to his instructor to ask (hypothetically) how one might solve the problem of moving inferior product? “Change the name.”

    I know that everyone and her mother love the Bunk/McNulty “Eff” murder scene…it’s always bugged me for some reason. It just seemed a little too cute and self-consciously clever to me.

  35. B Says:

    Two scenes in particular had me rolling on the floor. The scene with namond asking bernard if he should cut his hair, and bernard replyin “Do i look like a fucking fag?”

    The scene where Omar shows up at Joes with the broken clock, and Joe asks whats wrong with it, Omar replies “It ran out of time” as he point that big ass gun in Joe’s face.

  36. Simon's bitch Says:

    Season 1 with Daniels and Marla’s very quiet dinner intercut with Kima and Cheryl’s very quiet dinner. Excellent.

  37. Nancy Dyer Says:

    I love this show. It’s hard to come up with favorite moments, precisely because there are so many good ones. One of my favorites is from this season (ep. 52). Chris, Snoop, and Michael are in the car outside June Bug’s house waiting for him to arrive to kill him (this is leading up to the “home invasion”) Michael asks why they are killing June Bug, and Snoop says it’s because they heard he’d disrespected Marlo. Michael questions this (“you HEARD…”). There’s a moment when Michael sits back with a look of … I don’t know… amazement that they’d kill someone over a rumor? Horror? Disgust? And at that moment, Chris looks in the rear-view mirror and sees Michael’s face. In that one small moment, when we see Chris’ eyes, it’s like he can read Michael’s thoughts and is looking at him in a different way. It scared the heart out of me!

  38. Janet Says:

    “He meant Lexus but he ain’t know it.”

  39. Wade Says:

    Nice work. Some of these were great throwbacks…the Shaft scene and WeyBey’s confession most of all. My favorite part is that he seems much more upset that they bring cole slaw when he asked for ‘tato salad than he is when Levy tells him he’s getting life no parole no matter how many bodies he tells them about.

    But yall have left out a few glaring omissions, for which all I can say is: “That’s some shameful shit right there.”

    – Omar testifying against Bird. Season 2: All Prologue. Maybe my favorite moment(s) in the whole series, starting with him and McNulty shopping for a suit to when Bird goes nuts out in the hallway and Omar waves his tie at him. Of course, the best is his answer to how he has managed to live for eight or nine years robbing drug dealers. “Day at a time, I suppose.”

    – String and Avon fight. Season 3. Scene starts with String tryna get Slim to put a hit on Clay Davis. Avon tells him “Slim gonna hafta sit this one out. You need a Day of the Jackal muthafucka for something like that…not a rough and tumble nigga like Slim.” Ends with String telling Avon about his nephew (“There went a life that had to be snatched”) and then wrestling him to the ground.

    – Segei takes Nick to see Prop Joe. Season 2. “If it wasn’t for Sergei, yall would be some cadaverous muthafuckas.”

    – Herc finally gets to do hand-to-hands. In Season 2, the dealers like Frog are white, which means Herc is doing the buys. He’s late cause he’s getting into character. Carv asks why and he holds up his toothpick. “It’s all in the props, baby.” Another great Herc moment is when he introduces himself to Beadie and then Carv makes fun of him. “Hi, I”m Thomas…Would you like to get some coffee?” Herc says something about making a soup with her panties.

    – Kima, Prez and Sheryl go to the strip club.

    – Omar goes to jail. Classic.

    – “James Cromwell” can’t stop the two prostitutes from sealing the deal. “Spot on.”

    – Bodie asks Marlo “Can we talk?” Marlo just stands there swinging his golf club. “I need you to go down there and pack up your people. I’m being a gentlemen about it for the moment.”

    – McNulty goes to String’s house. “Who the fuck was I chasing?”

    Okay…I’ll stop.

  40. thedailykirk Says:

    The cop funeral at the bar was one of my all time favorite scenes. Jay, the big softy, eulogizes and starts to get dusty. Lester calls out to play the song and the whole bar erupts singing the words to The Pogues’ “Tale of an American” (or whatever the title is).

    It is the only moment in the show that made me sad I wasn’t a cop. That’s a hell of a send off.


  41. S1) Bodie watching Wallace give Chinese food to all those kids. At this point Bodie knows he’s going to kill Wallace.

    S2) Ziggy and Frank Sabotka sharing a cigarette after Ziggy burned a $100 bill in the bar. “Just a smile, I guess.”

    S3) “Do the chair know we gonna look like some punk ass bitches?” Stringer flips out. Shamrock: “String, Poot did have the chair.”

    S4) Prez finds the completed work on a desk when the class leaves, and smiles. At another desk, under a piece of paper someone has carved “Fuck Prezbo” into the desk.

    S5) Duquan dances.

  42. That Honey Nut Says:

    Cheese: “That shit was unseemly!”

    When that first corner boy refers to Amsterdam as Hamsterdam.

    Bunk’s lacrosse reminiscences.

    Anytime Bodie said “Shit is on!”

    2 for Ashy Larry:
    “Focus, motherfucker, focus!”
    and when he is talking to Daniels about his B&E’s in the kitchen during the fundraiser


  43. Oh yea, when Santangelo takes Johnny to Hamsterdam and tells him, “I hear the WMDs are the bomb.”

  44. AlwaysBoris Says:

    WeyBey going to see Avon all pissed off after the drug-peddling prison guard dumps his plastic fish on the cell floor. Avon eating KFC and is all “You betta get up in this.”

    Carv’s form tackle in the Pit.

    McNulty presuming some cop up North is a racist and talking all bigoted, only to find out dude has a black wife. “Your partner…bit of an asshole.”

    Cheese jacking up Ziggy. “Hold up…There aint even enough here to even call this shit money.”

    The montage when the cops round up all the hoppers who keep bucking Hamsterdam. Throw there shoes in the storm drain, drop em off out in the woods and spray the whole van full of pepperspray. “Now that is outrageous.”
