If you’re a huge fan of “The Wire,” then you’ll now understand what it’s like to have a birthday twice in a month’s time. We debuted hh’s fantastic “The 100 Greatest Quotes from ‘The Wire’” video here a little less than a month ago, and since then, it’s been seen over on YouTube more than 260,000 times.

Still, despite the massive popularity of the video, many fans of “The Wire” who have seen it have cited several omissions —the show is so good that, despite the fact that only 60 episodes exist, 100 Quotes wasn’t enough to satiate many of the show’s fans …

… and so we bring you the sequel. “Another 100 Quotes from ‘The Wire.’” What’s particularly remarkable about this video is that, as you’re watching it, you’re thinking to yourself, “How did these quotes not make the first list of 100,” before you revisit the first video and finally understand why.

The show is that good.

We’ve devoted enough copy to the show over the last half decade (even making it our Top Show of the Aughts), so I’m just going to shut up now and let you bask in the genius that is hh’s “Another 100 Great Quotes from ‘The Wire.’”

Fans of this video might also want to check out hh’s other contributions, including the original “100 Greatest Quotes from The Wire,,” “The Other 100 Greatest Movie Quotes of All Time,” Cinema’s Top Human Villains: The Video, and Wall-E: The Cannibal Years.
