“You come at the king, you best not miss.”

From: The Wire

Genre: Television

Who said it?: Omar Little

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the HBO series, The Wire. The show is generally a crime drama that focuses on different areas of Baltimore, Maryland.

The quote comes from the 8th episode of the 1st season, entitled “Lessons” by Omar Little (played by Michael K. Williams). Stinkum and Wee-Bey from the Barksdale Organization plan to kill a drug dealer as part of Stinkum’s promotion/initiation. However, Omar Little is actually lying in wait. He kills Stinkum outright and wounds Wee-Bey. As Wee-Bey hides under cover, Omar delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom:  Always try to do the best job during your first attempt and try to treat it as if it was going to be your last attempt. Because there is a good chance it just may be your only chance to get it right.
