  • QUOTES (3)

    • Lester: Look, I've seen Caged Heat. I know how to survive in prison. You gotta be the shot-caller, and I think I've figured out a way to do that.
      Casey: You know, Caged Heat was a women's prison movie.
      Lester: Well, the lessons remain the same, John.

    • Morgan: Hey. How you holding up, man? I didn't think it would be this hard without Lester around.
      Jeffrey: I'm starting to forget him. I can't even picture what Lester looks like anymore.
      Morgan: Close your eyes. Imagine David Beckham. Lester's a shorter, feminine version of his wife.
      Jeffrey: Right. I can see him now.

    • Sarah: Casey, there is a very strong case against you. Escape might be your only option to get your life back.
      Casey: If I break out of prison, I'm a fugitive. I don't run from the law. I am the law!

  • NOTES (2)


    • Verbanski: Right, I'm gonna take orders from Ward and June Cleaver.

      Ward and his wife, June are fictional characters in the American television sitcom Leave It to Beaver. The show ran from 1957 to 1963.

    • Morgan's line "Prisoner transfer from CB elevensection three eight" is a nod to Luke Skywalker's "Prisoner transfer from Block 1138" in Star Wars: A New Hope.

    • Casey's "I am the law" could be a hat tip to Judge Dredd's famous "I never broke the law, I AM THE LAW!" with the new "Dredd" movie due in 2012.
