I have tried to properly reproduce the tapping on the head that Spiros does in The Wire series 2, but I've never got it quite right.

He kind of taps the side of his head and says 'he is smart' or similar. But he somehow taps using the nail side of his pointing finger, yet without crossing his arm in from of his face. It's got me flummoxed.

Saying 're-up' for having another coffee or whatever. Also The Wire.

In my house we have a few Alan Partidge-isms: 'back of the net,' 'jackanackanory,' and 'I love you...in a way.'

From The Wire (Marlo), when things have not turned out the way someone wanted, we say, in Marlo's scary voice, 'you wanted it to be be one way, but it the other way...'

widenation - 12 Jul 2020 09:14:51 (#18 of 155)

Front of the net.

angelico - 12 Jul 2020 09:27:36 (#19 of 155)
