Trivia

McNulty proclaims, "How many out there can do what we do? Don Warden, Ed Burns, Gary Childs out in the county, John O'Neil and Steve Cleary over in Woodlawn, oh they bring it in, but there's not many". This is a winking reference to Ed Burns, one of the writer's and show's creator, also a police officer for many years. See more »

Goofs

When McNulty/Prez first step out to pick up Chinese food for the others, it is daytime. The scene then cuts back and forth between story lines such as Stringer/Avon where it is daytime, back to McNulty/Prez still picking up Chinese but now it's night, over to Daniels/Pearlman's meeting with the Feds during the daytime, then finally back to the Chinese food run still at night. (It could have just been a really long food run). See more »
