Credit to Big Doug for giving me the idea.

Since we've all noticed that the most loyal fans of this show know it inside and out, detail by detail, let's go for some of the lesser-known aspects. Usual HHE quiz rules apply -- The one who correctly answers the question kicks off the next question. Honor system, no google.

I'll start. What was Poot's real name, as established in season 3's "Mission Accomplished"..?

Maleek Car? May be spelling it wrong.

Easy one: Who told Marlo how to get to Omar?

That's a complicated one. Are you talking about Cheese when he suggested torturing Butchie to draw Omar back? If that's not the answer you're looking for, then disregard this next question.

Another easy one. In the opening scene of the first episode, McNulty was sitting on the stoop discussing a murder. What was the victim's street name AND why did he get killed?

That seems like a perfectly fine answer. As for the street name of the aforementioned victim: Snot Boogie, who was killed because he had a habit of robbing dice games.

Who's service weapon was Bunk ordered to track down and how did said officer lose it in the first place?

Dozerman got shot and had his weapon snatched while doing a hand to hand.

How many vials was he trying to buy, according to Colvin's speech at the end of the episode?

OK, I'll skip that one for now becuz it might be a tough one. Feel free to shout out the answer if you got it anyway.

Next question -- What type of liquor were Spiros and The Greek enjoying in the hotel room right before they skipped town?

I think it was gin actually, but I'm not sure. But I was looking for the specific brand.

I remember the convo between Bunk and Omar on the bench. "I was a few years ahead of you at..." I wanna say Edmondson, but I could be wrong about that.

edit -- looked it up to verify, and it was Edmondson.

So we're still looking for the brand of liquor and the number of vials Dozerman was buying. Shout 'em if you got 'em.

Next question -- a lot of people get this wrong, since they don't pay attention to context. Who shot and killed Bodie?

Correct. You know how many arguments I got in with people who swore that was Michael?

Next question Marlon?

It's wishful thinking. It's probably the same people that would have preferred to have seen Michael robbing old what's his name with Randy and/or Dookie by his side in the final montage. Was there a question there? C'mon Marlon. You're like dropping the ball and shit.

Fuck it, keep this ball rolling. Marlon can cut in line when he comes back around.

Roland Bryce? Again, I don't know if I'm spelling that right....

2 parter: Why did Avon get mad at his coming home party, and what was his gift from Stringer?

Yeah, Roland Brice.

Avon was mad because Stringer was deterring him from trying get a nut off and the gift was 2 hoecakes.

What was the name of Cutty's gym? and who shot Cutty in the leg?

....AND Avon was mad becuz of the 2 fools coming in there coked up and making a scene. "Ayo Slim, toss these mu'fuckas.."

I'm stumped on the gym name, but I believe it was Monk who shot him.

One of my favorite scenes from season 3 -- When Cutty gave Avon his little presentation to ask for funding for the gym...how much did he ask for, and how much did Avon give him?

Darion gets the gold star.

I hope this is right:

He asked for 10, he got 15?

How much did Dook ask Prez for, to cop his high?

"..couple hunnid, but if you throw in an extra 150, I can get enrolled in that GED program.." All in all, he came out with 300 I believe.

After Kima recovered from the shooting and took a desk job, what official department was she assigned to?
