Profound Words of Advice from Lester Freamon


“-We’re good at this, Lester. In this town, we’re as good as it gets.
-Natural police.
-Fuck yes, natural police.
-Tell me something Jimmy, how exactly do you think it all ends?
-What do you mean?
-A parade? A gold watch? A shining Jimmy-McNulty-day moment, when you bring in a case so sweet that everyone gets together and says: “Oh shit, he was right all along. We should’a listened to the man”. -The job will not save you, Jimmy. It won’t make you whole, it won’t fill your ass up.
-I dont know, a good case…
-…ends. They all end. The handcuffs go click and it’s over, and the next morning it’s just you in the room with yourself.
-Until the next case.
-Boy, you need something outside of this here.
-Like what? Dollhouse miniatures?
-Hey, hey, hey. A life. A life, Jimmy. You know what that is? It’s the shit that happens while you’re waiting for moments that never come.
