* More of a [[Heartwarming/TheWire Moment of Heartwarming]], but damn if this troper didn't pump their fist when Wee-Bey allows Colvin to adopt his son Naymond as a way of giving the boy a chance to spare him of his father's fate in prison (or worse).

Added DiffLines:

*Wee Bey deserves a mention in Game Day. The only Wire character to ever get the best of Omar Little in a 1 to 1 gun fight. This was AFTER getting shot in the leg in the first encounter, bonus points for responding to an ambush.

* Avon Barksdale walks across the recreation yard at the Jessup prison, and a baseball game in progress stops so that he can pass. ''There's dead silence as he walks across the field, and not a single person moves.''
* The [[GambitIndex gambit]] Tommy Carcetti pulls on Burrell. Establishes the character as someone not to be taken lightly.

* [=McNulty=] informs D'Angelo's mother, who had insisted D take twenty years in jail rather than turn evidence for the cops and cost [=McNulty=] the whole case in season one, of his investigation into D'Angelo's death... long after he informed D's girlfriend about it. She asks why he didn't come to her first: "Honestly? I wanted to talk to someone who cared about the kid."
* Pretty much anything with Bunny Colvin. Specially his telling Rawls "Get on with it, motherfucker" when Rawls is firing him or his epic "paper bag" speech and his vivid defense of the humble corner as the poor's man castle.

* Lester, finally having caught [[ArchEnemy his nemesis Marlo]] by cracking the organization's supply code. Made all the more awesome by how Lester walks by all of the other mooks arrested next to Marlo and stands right in front of him, letting him know that he knows exactly who Marlo is and that he's been watching for awhile. The both of them simply trade cold stares, as befits both characters to a tee.
"Cool Lester Smooth" strikes again.
** The best part? After said stare-down, Lester waves the clock Marlo and his gang had been using as code for distribution, letting him know just exactly where he messed up and how he was caught.
