The Wire (TV Series 2002–2008) Poster



Det. William Moreland: You seem awfully happy today.

Det. Ray Cole: I got laid last night.

Det. William Moreland: Oh yeah? Your asshole still hurt?

Moreland: I'm just a humble motherfucker with a big-ass dick.

Freamon: You give yourself too much credit.

Moreland: Okay then. I ain't that humble.

[repeated line]

Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: What the fuck did I do?

[repeated line]

Omar: All in the game yo, all in the game.

[repeated line]

State Sen. R. Clayton 'Clay' Davis: SHIIIIIT

Dennis 'Cutty' Wise: The game done changed...

Slim Charles: Game's the same, just got more fierce.

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

Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: [during interrogation] All right, we'll call you Boris...

Sergei 'Serge' Malatov: [sighs] Boris... why always Boris?

Det. William Moreland: Them Greeks sure have some weird-ass names.

Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Hey, don't knock the Greeks. They invented civilization.

Det. William Moreland: Yeah, and ass-fucking, too.

Brother Mouzone: I see you favor a .45.

Omar: At night I do. And I keeps one in the chamber in case you ponderin'.

Brother Mouzone: You're the perfect bait. They will view you as conflicted, your homophobia is so visceral.

Lamar: See that. I haven't even walked in the place yet and you're already calling me a cocksucker.

Freamon: A life, Jimmy, you know what that is? It's the shit that happens while you're waiting for moments that never come.

Sgt. Jay Landsman: For you I would suggest some pantsuits, perhaps muted in color, something to offset Detective Moreland's pinstripe lawyerly affectations and the brash tweedy impertinence of Detective Freamon. Rawls is watching on this one, let's at least pretend like we got a fucking clue.

Freamon: Tweedy impertinence? I like that.

Avon Barksdale: Fucked up, man. Ay... y'all ask me y'all ugly ass niggas shouldn't be in here fuckin' around with all these guns and shit...

DA Pearlman: What's the worst thing on a woman? A drunken Irishman.

Det. William Moreland: [repeated line to McNulty] Happy now, bitch?

Dep. Comm.: What's this Sobotka to you?

Maj. Stanislaus 'Stan' Valchek: He's an asshole.

Lt. Dennis Mello: [repeated line at end of role call] Don't get captured!

Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: All those mopes in bracelets and not one of them named Osama.
