I knew the chess scene would be in your list, J.
It's a great one.
Man...Favorite scene from The Wire...I'd have to say it might be the one where Rawls gets screwed and stuck with the 13 homicides after McNulty faxed the tide charts to the other agencies about those dead girls in the shipping container. Can I merge that part in the homicide office with the conversation in the bar afterwards with McNulty, Lester, and Bunk? Lester: "I swear to God, Jimmy, the man stayed in his office the whole day!"
Rofl...Oh, man. "Freaking" McNulty.
