The Best Monologue In The Wire (And there were a lot of good ones)

"Listen to me you fuck. You did a lot of shit here. You played a lot of fucking cards. And you made a lot of fucking people do a lot of fucking things they didn't want to do. This is true. We both know this is true. You, McNulty, are a gaping asshole. We both know this. Fuck if everybody in CID doesn't know it. But fuck if I'm gonna stand here and say you did a single fucking thing to get a police shot. You did not do this, you fucking hear me. This is not on you. No it isn't asshole. Believe it or not, everything isn't about you. And the motherfucker saying this, he hates your guts, McNulty. So you know, if it was on you, I'd be the sonnofabitch to say so. Shit went bad. She took two for the company. That's the only lesson here."

Somebody give that actor a job -- something Gene Hackman would be good for.
