The 100 Greatest Quotes from The Wire


At this point in the show’s life cycle, it’s probably not necessary to launch into just how good The Wire was. It’s my second all-time favorite show behind Arrested Development, and no drama even comes close.

But even if that’s the case, I’ve tried to go back and rewatch it a few times, but that process can be a touch…exhausting. That’s why videos like this one need to exist.

Expert video editor Harry Hanrahan cut out the 100 best quotes from the show that will remind you of all its best moments. If you haven’t seen it, don’t watch it as there are spoilers and it will be like eating a whole box of cookies at once. If you have? Watch away, and smile as you remember its brilliance.
