* Dennis "Cutty" Wise is just starting to get his boxing gym together, but all he has is beat-up old equipment that is falling apart. Knowing he'll never get a loan from a bank, he goes to the only person he knows that can fund the project: Avon Barksdale. Avon sits unimpressed and almost seemingly disinterested while Dennis does his sales pitch, and asks Dennis how much he wants. Obviously expecting rejection, Dennis asks for $10,000. Avon laughs at him for ''only'' asking for $10,000, and has Slim Charles go get Dennis $15,000 in cash, no strings attached.

* As a stone-cold killer, Wee-Bey comes across as generally warm and funny. But there's nothing like the moment where Bey agrees to give up Namond to Bunny.

* The cop funerals, except for the last one. When a supporting cast member dies, their character also dies and gets a proper send off from Baltimore's Finest.

* Rawls taking [=McNulty=] aside and telling him that getting [[spoiler:Kima shot]] was not his fault, assuring him that, even though he is a "gaping asshole" that nothing that happened was his fault, and if it were, he'd be the one leading the charge for his arrest.

to:

* As weird as it may sound, the immediate aftermath of [[spoiler: Kima getting shot]]. It's also pretty sad, but you have all the bureaucrats and selfish policemen you've come to dislike through the season, along with the few good ones, supporting each other and actually caring about their police work for once. Also doubles as a MomentOfAwesome for most of the characters involved. It's telling that even Burrell and Rawls get their PetTheDog moments.

* [=McNulty=] deciding to ''not'' sleep with Beadie after seeing a picture of her kids, knowing he'd only screw up the good life she has. He only approaches her about getting together when he's in a far better place himself.

Added DiffLines:

* Bunny telling Namond just how much he's improved, and Namond showing an unwillingness to return to "gen-pop," right before they playfully roughhouse in the hallway together. The father-son aspects of their relationship simply shine in that moment.

to:

* Perhaps the most heartwarming moments of ''Series/TheWire'' involve Bubbles finally managing to [[RecoveredAddict achieve sobriety]] in the final season after years, perhaps decades, of being a homeless drug addict. At his first year anniversary he talks in heartbreaking detail about how he almost couldn't complete that first year due to his continued desire to get high.
