McNulty drives slowly up a narrow laneway and leaves his card -- with 9-1-1 written on it -- under the windshield wiper of Omar's van.
Picturesque downtown Baltimore street. How picturesque? Well, the first thing we see is a horse yoked to a carriage loaded with colourful fruit. It's like the Baltimore Chamber Of Commerce watched the first five episodes of the season and then begged HBO to broadcast footage of one street on which attractively wholesome scenes occasionally took place. And HBO complied...but then threw in Johnny. Oh, there he is now! Johnny and some guy we've never seen before -- there's someone on IMDb identified as Hucklebuck, which this guy may be --are pushing a pilfered shopping cart. Bubbs is buying fruit and calls out a greeting to Johnny, who asks, "What's the scam out here?" Bubbs says there isn't one; he's doing "an honest day's work for an honest day's pay" by assisting the vendor. Johnny taunts Bubbs as "Mr. Straight Time," and says that he and "Uck" (so I guess I was right) have a plan. Unable to resist, Bubbs shoots a look back at the fruit vendor, and meets Johnny up by the horse's head, where Johnny tells him they're going to "take off on the copper house." Bubbs can't believe that Johnny's going to "get all dramatic" on him in his first two days out of hospice, but he's plainly interested. Bubbs asks about the fence and the dog, but Johnny and Hucklebuck aren't scared of either. Johnny says that he hatched the plan when he was away, and Bubbs warms to the notion, and asks the vendor to cash him out. Johnny: "If you ain't got dreams, Bubbs, what the fuck you got?" Bubbs takes off with his boys. Look out, copper!
