** Also, regarding Barack Obama being a fan of the show, as President a few years later he went down to the shooting of a film called ''Film/RedTails'', about an all black squad of fighter pilots in WWII. While on the set he spotted Andre Royo, who played the relatively minor role of a mechanic for the squad. Upon seeing Royo, Obama's face lit up and he immediately asked "Is that my man Bubs?" Also turned into something of a heartwarming moment, as Royo related that he never got to take his mother down the red carpet, but because of Obama's fandom, Royo did get to take her to the White House.

* Omar could've done a lot of damage in the military. This is no more evident when he layed down a trap for Bubbles using a scrapped radiator.

** The moment he pulls out the clock is so ridiculously over-the-top [[note]] As well as the fact that he leaves the clock at the store [[/note]] that some viewers think he brought the clock with him [[ItAmusedMe ''just to make that pun.'']]

* Rawls taking [=McNulty=] aside in "The Hunt" to tell him that [[spoiler: Kima's shooting]] wasn't his fault. After a season of BadBoss, Rawls finally shows why he belongs where he is.

* After major fan of the show Barack Obama was elected president, he jokingly asked if there was any way for it to come back. David Simon's response? "Do something about all the problems the show talked about, and you've got a deal."

** There's a subtle one for Carver - he volunteers to go to the brothel, but gets dismissed by Rhonda on the basis of ''being too good looking to be believable''. He looks pleased.

* The way Daniels gets Prez off the hook is pretty neat, first he makes everyone present write on it, including the FBI and the word "shitbird", then he goes to Valchek and tells that he could probably make the BPD guys lie and ignore the insult, but he can't do nothing about the Feds. Valchek forgets about a harsh punishment and ends the matter with with a childish one. The smile on Cedric's face says it all. Daniels has become quite the smooth operator.
