* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]]: a RunningGag this episode is Carver trying to get Herc to answer the question of which guy he would have sex with if, before that, he could sleep with any woman in the world, and Herc is afraid to answer because, "The minute I name a guy, you're gonna be like, 'I knew you were a cocksucker from the first time I laid eyes on you. Creator/SteveMcqueenActor, huh? That's your fantasy, you closet-case motherfucker?'"

* ShoutOut: The women Herc wants to have before he answers Carver's question about which guy he would sleep with are [[Creator/MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen the Olsen twins]] and [[Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow Mary Tyler Moore]]. He also wants to know why he can't choose an older woman instead of a guy, such as [[Series/TheGoldenGirls Sophia Petrillo]] or [[Series/TheJeffersons Louise Jefferson]].

* TrojanHorse: Omar and his crew get inside the Barksdale stash house by having Omar pretend to be a wheelchair bound relative of one of the neighbors (with Kimmy as his nurse), and [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy even getting the guards to help him inside.]] The guards do frisk Omar in the wheelchair, and do realize something's wrong when they hear Omar say, "Thank you, young man", but by then, it's too late.

The Major Case squad/detail are finally able to get [[Recap/TheWireS03E01TimeAfterTime on the wire]], and even better, they hear him talking about what they think is a murder that he feels remorse about. Unfortunately, when Bunk and [=McNulty=] interrogate him, it turns out when Cheese was talking about his "dawg", he meant that literally; he entered his dog in a [[BeastlyBloodsports dog-fighting contest]], but it was badly mauled when the other dog's owner cheated by rubbing some chemical on his own animal, and Cheese [[MercyKill shot his own dog out of mercy]]. This ended up sparking a war between Cheese and the other owner, which was picked up on the wire, so the squad manages to solve those murders, but they let Cheese slip through their fingers, and with that, according to Daniels, their last chance at getting at Proposition Joe and even Stringer. [=McNulty=], of course, doesn't want to hear that, and he's approaching from another angle; when he finds out [[Recap/TheWireS02E06AllPrologue D'Angelo allegedly committed suicide]], he starts to investigate with the help of Frazier (who has his doubts from what he's seen of the autopsy photos), and even tries to bluff Donette about it.

While on a buy-and-bust, Officer Dozerman gets shot in the face, and those responsible also take his service weapon when he drops it. This is the last straw as far as Colvin is concerned, and to his squad's dismay, he declares there will know longer be anymore buy-and-busts for the rest of his tenure.

** [[WordOfGod David Simon]] confirmed that Richard Price, who wrote the episode, came up with Triandos, and Simon (though he thought it was hysterical) momentarily panicked when he found out Triandos was still alive, but when he contacted Triandos and sent him the script, Triandos understood the humor and was okay with it.


* OutOfCharacterMoment: Omar never swears, but one of the Barksdale crew recognizes Omar and says, "[[OhCrap Oh, shit!]]", Omar says the same thing back to him.

* TemptingFate: The Major Case squad is like this when they hear Cheese on the wire talking about shooting his dawg, assuming now they can nail him to the wall; only Prez (and, to a lesser extent, [=McNulty=]) is cautious). And when they see Bunk and [=McNulty=] interrogating Cheese, Foerster, Rawls, Rhonda and even Daniels allow themselves to smile in triumph, until [[OhCrap Daniels and Rhonda get the bad news.]]

-->'''Stash Guard:''' Hey, yo, Omar. Yo, [[TitleDrop all due respect]], but this, right here? This a Barksdale joint, man.
-->'''Omar:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Do tell.]]
