See it's sorta like the scene where Dukie get out the car
And Prezbo is watching a dream die from afar

In The Wire, Roland “Prezbo” Pryzbylewski is a former cop turned teacher that makes a connection with one of his student’s — Duquan “Dukie” Weems. Dukie is on a good path for awhile, but eventually his environment becomes too much to overcome. He borrows some money, supposedly to take a GED class, from Prezbo who gives him a ride as well. When he gets out of the car, Prezbo watches and sees that the money is really to buy drugs.
