Your papers went in, huh?

from The Wire (Ft. David Simon) – McNulty's Eulogy on Rap Genius

Meaning

His retirement papers. Lester and McNulty have had to retire from the Baltimore police force after being caught staging a series of murders. They tampered with the corpses of several homeless people (who had died of illness, etc.), making them look like homicide victims in order to gain enough manpower and resources to arrest an actual mass murderer: drug kingpin Marlo Stanfield.

Marlo Stanfield, played by Jamie Hector
