Episode Summary

EDIT
"A man must have a code." - Bunk

Greggs, Herc, Carver, and Syndor grab the runner who is holding the re-up stash for the pit. Now that the cops have the stash, a furious Avon begins to question D'Angelo about a possible snitch in the pit. D'Angelo says it can't be possible and he knows nothing of a snitch. Stringer tells D'Angelo and his crew they are to now use pay phones a block away and to not use the same phone twice. This in turn disconnects all the detective's wiretaps they fought so long to get.moreless

    • (Omar sits in the back of a police car in front of the towers)
      Kima: You worried about being seen?
      Omar: Well if anybody got a problem with me spending time with y'all, I'd be much obliged to stick my gun straight in they mouth.

    • McNulty: (to Pearlman) They're gonna do me, Ronnie. I love this fucking job, and they're gonna do me.

    • Bunk: So, you're my eyeball witness, huh? (Omar nods) So, why'd you step up on this?
      Omar: Bird triflin', basically. Kill an everyday workin' man and all. I mean, I do some dirt, too, but I ain't never put my gun on nobody that wasn't in the game.
      Bunk: A man must have a code.
      Omar: Oh, most definitely.

    • Rawls: (to Daniels) You're not wrong, Lieutenant. In this state, there's a thin line between campaign posters and photo arrays.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Bunk asks for Omar's help in clearing old murders, he comments that 'Murder stay murder', alluding to the fact that there is no statute of limitations on murder charges.
