    Buddy of mine a few years ago saw on Kickstarter they had 1,000 of the Clay Davis talking bobble heads and got me one. Probably play it 1-2 times a day depending on what requests come into my office.

    Right, Chris gives him the “you can look him in the eye” speech. Maybe Bodie earlier in the season than that

    The writing was something else on that show. Under appreciated in its time. It would win a shit ton if Emmy’s now.

    that part checks out imo. It’s not uncommon to have side bets going on whether the shooter will make their point.

    It's not. But to have someone only bet against all night is a little strange. Sitting on the side only faded 4s and 10s.

    The scene at the end of the episode where Greggs gets shot is so good. Just phenomenal acting by everyone. You can 100% feel and see the very real emotion by McNulty, Daniels, Carver, etc. as they're speeding around trying to find her car in the alley.

    The worst part of all of that is Lester going along with it. That’s the glaring part that doesn’t really fit. The actual idea is definitely dumb enough to be a McNulty idea.
