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 »


Janette offers Creighton a Hubig's pie for dessert when he doesn't want Lemon Ice. The only Hubig's factory is located in New Orleans and was out of operation after Katrina hit the city at the end of August 2005 until early January 2006. The pies are baked fresh daily and have a shelf life of 7-12 days. Since this episode is set 3 months after Katrina it is exceedingly unlikely that Kim would still have a pie and if she did it would be far past the freshness/expiration date and not suitable to eat/serve to a customer.
