A glimpse into the world of Avon Barksdale shows how careful the man is about the use of phones and pagers. McNulty’s squad gets permission to clone the crew’s beepers, and they start monitoring the project payphones to see what numbers are being called. But the phone numbers they get from the pagers are in code. Stringer tells D’Angelo that Avon thinks there’s a snitch in his crew, and that’s how Omar knew where the stash was. McNulty and Greggs stake out Omar’s van. Carver and Hauk catch Bodie again, and unsuccessfully play good cop/bad cop to try to get him to talk. D’Angelo takes his girl across town to a fancy restaurant, and feels out of place. She tells him, “You got money — you can be whoever you say you are.” Bubbles goes to visit Johnny in the hospital, and tells Johnny he’s become a snitch. The slug McNulty and Moreland found at the college girl’s murder scene matches slugs from two other murder cases, including that of a member of Omar’s crew. A friend of the murdered girl tells the cops that Avon owns the strip club, Orlando’s. McNulty and Greggs finally meet up with Omar and his boyfriend. Omar, who knows they’re using Bubbles as a snitch, coolly gives them a piece of information to help them nail Avon. Later, two dealers from the pit recognize Omar’s boy in an arcade, and alert D’Angelo, who in turn tells Stringer the news.
