I think that was relating Marlo back to Stringer Bell. Stringer kept trying to leave the street behind and did not care about his reputation. Marlo realized that he did not belong in the corporate, and he really did not want to leave the street anyway. Marlo unlike Bell (more like Avon), wanted his name to be known.

I think Jimmy was roughly based on Ed Burns (with his detail to the FBI). When Burns retired from the force he had no idea what he was going to do with his life. And Jimmy has no idea what he is going to do.
