  • Jiggy Walker (Said asks why he did what he did): Man, my first prison stay was over at Lardner. Eighteen years, I was seventeen. My family came to visit me regular and LaTanya, my fiancee, and my friends. They all came the first year. Then LaTanya married Beau, so she stopped coming, stopped showing up. Then Rodney didn't come no more, then my cousin Scat, my sister, my dad, he died. Year five, it was just me and my mama. Then they put her in an old folks' home. Six years in, I had no visiting days. I had no one come to see if I was still breathing. So I said, hey, get on TV, become a superstar, maybe they'd come for longer. Maybe they wouldn't forget about me. Fight the power, baby. Little hostile.

  • Beecher: Two men shouldn't love each other. They can't feel the same things a man and a woman feel. I mean, if a guy has a lot of bad shit happen to him and another guy comforts him, I mean, that's all it is, right? I mean, that's not love, right? Sister Pete: Well, some of the men here are homosexual and some need sex... Beecher: I'm not talking about sex I'm talking about love. I had sex with Schillinger it was brutal, hardly loving. This is different. Sister Pete: Tobias, are you in love with another man? Beecher: I think so, yeah.

  • Ryan: Hey, Gloria, you're back. Dr Nathan: I became a doctor to help people. Now, I know that that sounds like a cliche, it sounds naive, but it's true. I could have a fancy practice anywhere, but instead I chose to work in Oz. I saved your life, O'Reily, and in return, you destroyed mine. McManus: Your brother Cyril confessed. Ryan: Shit.

  • Ryan: I saw on Tv that pot helps beat the after effects of chemo. Dr Ferstopnick: Yeah. Ryan: So, what do you say, wanna hook me up? Dr Ferstopnick: You want me to give you marijuana? Ryan: Yeah, for, what do you call it, medicinal purposes. Dr Ferstopnick: Nice try, kid.

  • Ryan: Hey, Dr. Ferstopnick, how you doing? Dr Ferstopnick: Oh, my backache's killing me, my house needs a new sewer system, my wife wants to spend our 30th wedding anniversary in the Virgin Islands. Talk about living in the past. Other than that, I'm hunky dory.
