Hard Cases - S2-E4

Corrected entry: Your hear one of the inmates saying the cut drugs were more rat poison than coke. Later in the meeting, where Avon Barksdale is going to tell them the source of the tainted drugs, his lawyer says it was heroin. (00:10:30 - 00:30:50)


Correction: The inmate says "more rat poison than it was dope" referring to heroin.

Not for Attribution - S5-E3

Corrected entry: When McNulty emerges from the men's room looking plastered, the "men" sign is a mirror image, indicating a reversed shot. Also, one side of McNulty's collar is sticking out over his lapel. Sure enough, in the next shot, his collar is reversed.

Correction: The shot is not reversed, it is a reflection in a mirror. The mirror does not extend all the way to the bottom of the frame, and the bottles in the foreground can be seen with their reflections.

Avon Barksdale: I ain't no suit-wearin' businessman like you... you know I'm just a gangsta I suppose.

-30- - S5-E10

Question: What is Valchek's last sentence in the show as he is being promoted to commissioner by Nerese Campbell? Looks like a joke, but no subtitles and it is pretty difficult to hear.


Chosen answer: As he's trying on his new hat, Valchek says, with a smile, "fits like a glove!"
