Omar: I'll do what I can to help y'all. But, the game's out there, and it's play or get played. That simple.
Det. Ellis Carver: See, that's why we can't win.
Det. Thomas Hauk: Why not?
Det. Ellis Carver: They fuck up, they get beat. We fuck up, they give us pensions.
Preston 'Bodie' Broadus: You supposed to be good cop, dumb motherfucker!
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?
Troy Wiggins: Shakima's just pissed, 'cause I had her when she was still good.
Shakima Greggs: Yeah, well, you the ugly-ass motherfucker that turned me around.
Proposition Joe: I heard your end would be covering my fee.
Stringer Bell: Your fee?
Proposition Joe: Yeah, I'm like a marriage counselor. Tell the man he oughta bring the bitch some flowers every once in a while. Tell the bitch she gotta suck some cock every once in a while. That sort of shit.
Proposition Joe: Speaking of cocksuckers...
Proposition Joe: I'm Proposition Joe. You fuck with me, I'll kill your whole family.
Freamon: Ain't none of you ever been in the military? Don't you know how you learn a thirty-inch quick time?
Freamon: Draft dodging peace freaks, huh?
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.
DA Pearlman: What's the worst thing on a woman? A drunken Irishman.
Avon Barksdale: I ain't no suit-wearin' businessman like you... you know I'm just a gangsta I suppose...
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'.
Omar: All in the game yo, all in the game.
Omar: Ayo, lesson here, Bey. You come at the king, you best not miss.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: All those mopes in bracelets and not one of them named Osama.
Bubbles: Thin line between heaven and here.
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...
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.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: [during interrogation] All right, we'll call you Boris...
Sergei 'Serge' Malatov: [sighs] Boris... why always Boris?
Det. William Moreland: [repeated line to McNulty] Happy now, bitch?
State Sen. R. Clayton 'Clay' Davis: SHIIIIIT
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: [Repeated line] What the fuck did I do?
Lt. Dennis Mello: [repeated Line at End of Role Call] Don't Get Captured!
