[Carver and Colicchio pull up to Bodie's corner and get out of the car]
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Where's the love, Bodie? Where is the muthafuckin' love?
Sgt. Ellis Carver : I go back so far with this kid, I was chasin' him through juvy.
Sgt. Ellis Carver : But does any of that matter when we roll up here? I get so much as a wave, a nod, a smile? Nothin'?
[Bodie hawks and spits, but says nothing]
Sgt. Ellis Carver : How 'bout just "hello"?
Preston 'Bodie' Broadus : Hello.
Sgt. Ellis Carver : See? That wasn't so hard, was it?
[he turns to Lex, who is sweeping the sidewalk and trying hard not to be noticed]
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Lex, my man, how's your day goin'? Not to criticize or anything, but I think you missed a spot there.
[he turns to Little Kevin and Reesy]
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Little Kevin, how's it hangin'? Reesy, you look like someone just shot your dog. You all right, man? You okay?
[he turns back to Bodie]
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Reesy still messin' up the count?
Little Kevin : [to Reesy] You hear what he said?
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Yo, dawg, you send him up to Lamelle next month, I'll make sure Ms. Davis puts him in remedial math, and we'll have done some good here today.
Reesy : [chuckling] He's fuckin' got me.
[McNulty pulls up in his squad car and gets out]
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty : Everything good?
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Yeah, just words.
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty : [to Bodie] Mr. Entrapment. How you doin'?
[Bodie sighs and rolls his eyes]
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty : Don't look like that, I'm still dining out on that story.
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty : You know how he beat the wiretap a year ago? Claimed entrapment when he was clockin' in Bunny Colvin's Hamsterdam. Shit you not. Smart kiddo. I loved it.
Off. James 'Jimmy' McNulty : When I roll back in an hour, this corner's bone-dry. Your people are done for the day.
[he gets back in his car and drives away]
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Okay, so let's try this again: I say, "Have a good evening, Mr. Broadus."
Preston 'Bodie' Broadus : And a good evening to you, Sergeant Carver.
Sgt. Ellis Carver : See?
[he taps his forehead, and he and Colicchio walk back to their car]
Preston 'Bodie' Broadus : [sarcastically] And a very good evening to you, Officer Colicchio.
Off. Anthony Colicchio : [viciously] Fuck yourself with a forty, shitbreath.
Off. Anthony Colicchio : The fuck was all that about?
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Can't bust every head, Tony.
Off. Anthony Colicchio : [chuckling] I can't?
Sgt. Ellis Carver : Bust every head, who you gonna talk to when the shit happens?
