Did You Know?


When Janette runs out of dessert in her restaurant's kitchen, she offers to give Creighton a Hubig's pie from her purse instead. When New Orleanians pointed out that Hubig's didn't actually reopen after Katrina until February 2006 and would therefore not have been available during the time when that scene was set, showrunner David Simon wrote an open letter to the New Orleans Times-Picayune acknowledging that "any such pastry found in a woman's purse should by rights be a pre-Katrina artifact and therefore unsuitable for anyone's dessert" but went on to explain that "the pie in Janette DeSautel's purse is a Magic Hubig's. Much in the manner of certain loaves and fishes in the New Testament, or several days worth of sacramental oil in the Old, this Hubig's somehow survives months of post-Katrina tumult and remains tasty and intact for our small, winking moment of light comedy. We know this because we, the writers, imbued the pie with its special powers. We created it. We stuck it in the purse--or more precisely, the propmaster did." See more »
