Trivia

One of only two times you hear Omar utter a curse word is the very first time his character is introduced. He says the word "shit". The other is in The Wire: The Pager (2002). In that episode he says to McNulty and Gregs "Shit, Bubbles knows Bird". Ironically this is shortly after lecturing his boyfriend Brandon about using foul language.
