"As Rhonda you are doubtless one of the most intelligent of your peer group, and as such your intelligence is your defining trait. You could put innumerable perps behind bars with your large legal mind and your - shall we say - creative use of the law. That's right, not even a state's attorney is outside the game. Manipulating the opposition into working in your favour is second nature, but underlying it all there's a genuine belief that you are doing good. With a resume like that you could be doing anything (or anyone) you damn please."
I'd have been much happier with Lester. Not a fan of Marlo.

Do it or don't. But I got some place to be.
You can sum up Marlo with one word: power. Doesn't matter what kind of power, or how you got it, all that matters to you is getting to the top and staying there. Luckily for you, and unluckily for everyone else, you've got the brains to pull it off and the foresight to keep your mouth shut. You know words aren't to be wasted, so you make each one count. You aren't ever going to have many friends, but the ones you do would probably risk their lives to keep you safe and free. Either they really, really like you, or they're really, really really terrified.

A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.

It's hard to explain why this scene made me cry. It was like a sudden, visceral understanding of why people talk about us as a society failing kids like this. The "System" as it exists now might as well be a parallel universe for all its ability to grapple meaningfully with this child and his day-to-day reality. And if we can't provide for those who need it most, for those who are the most vulnerable what fucking good are we? I suppose that's the series in a nutshell, though.

Tom Wolfe wannabe, think you're gonna get a phrase like that past me? No fucking way, motherfucker!
As Gus you've got a strict sense of journalistic ethics. That doesn't sound all that laudable, but if the dissemination of factual and valuable information is the basis of a free society, then your stand against the fraudsters and embossers really does mean a damn. As such, your morality is your defining trait. You aren't one for manipulating your way up the chain of command: you believe in your job and you stick to it. If a promotion comes, then it comes. Your dependability is matched by your intelligence, but never forget that the game cares not for who has "the facts" or "ethics". Even then, I very much doubt that knowing that would stop you.

I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Congratulations. You are the most loved character on one of the most critically acclaimed shows ever. Before that starts going to your head, let's talk about what being Omar means. It means you function best on the ground, where the game is most dangerous. It means that people respect you and fear you in equal measure. It means that you have a code, but that doesn't make you a good person. It means that you will have many enemies, and few friends. It means you are part of the game, and always will be. Lesson here? If you the king, people never gonna stop coming. Not all of them will miss.
