Quotes

Sgt. Jay Landsman: [to Officer Russell] 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 we got a fucking clue.
Freamon: Tweedy impertinence? I like that.

"Avon is Avon"
16 May 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

Just a look of how Avon is still Avon no matter that he is locked up, no matter that his s*** isn't as strong as it used to be. Here is the first real talk between Avon and D'Angelo in prison and of course D'Angelo knows everything can be easy for him if he does his part, here he listens to Avon, he will do what Avon asked him "out of love" and again, Avon is Avon then by the end of the day D'Angelo will be fine. During the previous hour Avon talked with Stringer Bell mainly about two things: that officer that is being nothing but a damn pain in the ass for Wee-Bey and D'Angelo's girl Donette so here is Stringer taking care of this stuff. The Tilghman stuff will deliver a damn fine move but I will write more of that soon, here I better mention that scene with Stringer and D'Angelo's girl. Is Stringer saying to Donette the importance of the family, that D'Angelo needs to see her, you know is Stringer saying how difficult the time is for D'Angelo and how she has practically forget him. And she will go to see D'Angelo but of course she won' mention to him what's going on between her and Stringer, what began after that talk in which Stringer said to her what he had to. Talking about family, well is time to meet Nick's girl and kid, is abut plans, about having finally something of their own, about start to live together. Nick and his cousin Ziggy will do a damn fine business, easy stuff, lots of money of course. Still about family, well what about Stan Valchek and his son-in-law Prez, you know about the detail, about how things are going on, about what Prez and company have already on Fran Sobotka however there's not much to talk about, Stan will hear more about the Barksdale case, pretty much Prez just makes Stan know about that the way things were done by Daniels, Lester and company in the Barksdale case is the way things need to be done, about what happened with Burrell when they began to go after the money so we will have Stan with Burrell's balls in his hands ready to ask for anything and Stan will be asking, now that he knows more about the Barksdale case, for a fine detail, for Daniels. More about family? Well here we have the first appearance in Season 2 of McNulty's ex wife and kids, we know that McNulty wants to return with Elena but anyway McNulty also wants to give a name to the dead girl he found floating, to find her family. And what about Bunk, Lester and Russell? Well, before McNulty said to them his ideas they already came with how things happened, they know exactly what the Greek knew after talking with one of the men of the Atlantic Light. Good hour, and did I mention Omar is back?
