    Agreed, there's too many to count.

    Any scene with Stringer, Marlo, Snoop, Bunk, Rawles, Clay Davis and Avon.

    Also liked when Omar set Avon up to pick up the phone at the booth, The confrontations between Omar and Brother Mouzzone, When Bodie and Poot meet Herc and Carver at the movies.

    Bird going off in the interrogation room and everyone kicking his rear end as a result and Omar commenting on the situation.

    Omar in court

    McNulty's wake.

    McNulty screwing a prostitute on the hood of his car.

    Daniels detailing the fustrations of the job as commissioner to his ex-wife.

    And many more I currently can't think of.

    Any scene when McNulty and Stringer are shooting lightning at each other.

    Like in the scene when McNulty arrests Avon but goes to Stringer and says "Catch you later."

    Also those two courtroom scenes in the beginning and end of season 1, when they say to each other "well played." They are like two chess players, waiting for the other to go "checkmate."

    It has to be the one where Rawls explains to McNaulty that, well, he is a reasonable guy.


    Thing is, can't recall which episode actually has that scene. I'd be grateful if anyone could name it.
