The Wire: All Due Respect -- television at its finest

"That small, wrinkled-ass paper bag allowed the corner boys to have their drink in peace, and gave us permission to go. and do. police work...the kind of police work that's actually worth the effort. That's worth actually taking a bullet...

There's never been a paper bag for drugs. Until now."
