  • Quotes (20)

    • Lincoln (about Kellerman): What if the reason this guy's helping us, is to get whatever information Sara has?

    • Lincoln: They've buried it. Dumped it off the front page and buried it. Kellerman: It's what they do. Michael: They can spin it all they want. It's out there now. Give it time. The tape is going to work.

    • Lincoln (on video): My name's Lincoln Burrows, and I'm innocent. I escaped from Fox River Penitentiary because I was sentenced to death for a crime I did not commit. I did not murder Terrence Steadman. He committed suicide last night in the Cutback Motel thirty miles outside of his home in Blackfoot, Montana. Michael: He killed himself out of fear. Fear of the people who have been hiding him for the past three years. The same people who want my brother dead. They don't want you to know who they are, but know this: They've stolen billions of dollars and murdered dozens of people, and yet they plaster our faces on the news and tell you to be afraid. Lincoln: They are a group of multi-nationals, corporate interests. Together they are known as 'The Company' Michael: They are working with the highest levels of government including the President of the United States. All told they've stolen billions of dollars and murdered dozens of innocent people....and they offer it with impunity. Under the cover of the Secret Service, the very people meant to protect and serve.

    • News Anchor: It's breaking news out of Cutback, Montana. Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield, two of the prisoners who broke out of Fox River State Penitentiary in Illinois have continued to elude the authorities, leaving a trail of crime in their wake, and today they left behind something else. (cuts to a video of Lincoln) Lincoln: My name is Lincoln Burrows and I'm innocent.

    • (on phone) President Reynolds: Hello, Paul. Kellerman: Madame President. It's been a while. President Reynolds : I know. I'm calling to apologize. Kellerman: Okay. President Reynolds : I'm so sorry. It all just got away from me, and I ended up hurting the one person who's always been at my side. I want you to come home, Paul. We can fix this together. But not with those brothers running around the country tearing down the very office you helped me build. Kellerman: Caroline… President Reynolds: I want to make it up to you. Please bring them in, Paul, and everything can go back to the way it was. I have to go now. I'll see you soon.

    Trivia (11)

    • According to the newspaper that Lincoln is reading, the body of Terrence Steadman has been identified as that of an immigrant janitor named Luc Thachuk.

    • When the cops bring Sucre to the Mexican man, he says "Me alegra que lo trajeran para atras", and it's subtitled as "I'm glad you brought him back". It's correct, except that instead of "Para atras" it should be "De vuelta". "Para atras" is "Backwards".

    • The Mexican man says that it's rare to find people from Puerto Rico (like Sucre) in the part of Mexico where they were. The actor playing that man (Ismael "East" Carlo) is from Puerto Rico.

    • Michael, Lincoln and Kellerman were listening to the station 1630 AM in the car.

    • Goof: When the police arrive at the motel, why did they call for Michael and Lincoln to come out? When Michael was on the phone to the news channel, he only mentioned himself being at the Cutback Motel.

    • Boy (to Haywire): Good luck, Gilligan. Gilligan is a character from the show Gilligan's Island, played by Bob Denver. The show followed the comic adventures of seven castaways, a representative microcosm of white American society, as they attempted to escape from a previously-uninhabited island where they were shipwrecked and stranded.

    • Nuannuan: The scenario about Sucre's doings in Mexico in this episode is a perfect allusion to the masterpiece "Les Miserables" of the French author Victor Hugo. Jean Valjean, the hero, an escaped prisoner, was sheltered by a priest from whom he had stolen some silver ornaments in order to get away. He was caught later but the priest had let him go and given him even more ornaments.

    • Kellerman: Tell them you’re the Green Lantern. The Green Lantern is a superhero created by DC Comics.
