    Hmmmmm.....another good OZ episode. This show is so great! I can't get enough! I feel very bad thinking that I'm on the 4th seasons and I'll arrive veryy soon at the last one and I can't seeee anymore of it. Anyway. Reabadow?! Wtf is the matter with him? From a calm little nice old man he becamed a psycho killer?! That sucks. And the new warden...oooomg he sooo pisses me off! I would love to see McManus back in Emerald city, this new guy is a total **** (sorry for the language). But then again, that's Oz. It touches your curiosity, nerves and conscience. For me that's a hell of a feeling. Can't wait to see what's happening next.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Keller approached Schillinger and Robson in the cafeteria to taunt Schillinger, Keller had a blue/purple colored fruit drink on his food tray. When he began to follow Schillinger and Robson as they left, the drink was orange.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • (after Patrick Keenan described, a little too happily, the details of his raping of Dr. Nathan)
      Ryan: You know how I said I never actually killed anybody myself? Well, in your case, I'm going to an exception!
      (bashes his head in with a barbell).

    • Querns: I don't have to explain why I condone what I condone to you.
      Said: No, you don't. But I can go to the warden.
      Querns: I can send you to the hole.
      Said: You know others have tried to silence me.
      Querns: Others ain't me, Said.

    • (Ginzburg is vomiting violently)
      Miles: (shouting) For Christ's sake, Ginzburg, I can't take it anymore! All day, all night with the vomiting! Why don't you hurry up and die! Jesus!

    • Browne: Hey, Keller, man, I gotta ask you a question, man. You mind if I fuck your girlfriend, Beecher? You mind if he sucks my cock?
      Keller: I don't give a fuck what you do or what he does.

    • Cyril: (to Dr Nathan) You don't like us, do you? I like you.

    • Adebisi: Your brother, he sleep all day?
      O'Reily: Nah, they just got him on this new medication to calm him down and stuff.
      Adebisi: If you ask me, he's too calm.

    • Mukada: I can absolve you, but the only way to show God that you are truly sorry is to go to the police.
      Keller: Look, I'm truly sorry, okay? So just fucking absolve me.
      Mukada: No.
      Keller: Give me my fucking penance.
      Mukada: No.
      Keller: Goddamn you, Goddamn you to fucking hell you goddamn hack in black.

    • Keller: Hey, Vern. Four marriages, I never had any kids, so I don't know dick about parenting, but you, fuck, you deserve some sort of prize. One son, you give him drugs knowing he'll OD, the other you set up for lethal injection. You're father of the fucking year. But you know what the best news is? When both of your sons are dead, that'll be the end of it, 'cause you ain't making any more children, not in here. So that when you die, your name dies with you. Everything you are dies when you do. And the world'll be a better place.

    • Beecher: You gotta forgive me.
      Keller: No.
      Beecher: I forgave you.
      Keller: Well I guess that makes you the better man.

    • Querns: The Warden tells me that an inmate from Unit B, Vern Schillinger, may be responsible for your son's death, so we've decided for the time being, to restrict your movements through the rest of Oz. No library or gym privileges, and you'll eat your meals here at Em City.
      Beecher: He killed my son, and I get punished for it?
      Querns: Well, given the fact that I have transferred all the Aryans out of Em City, this is the safest place for you.
      Beecher: Safe?
      Querns: Relatively speaking.

    • Hill: (narrating) People in love sometimes say that they're head over heels, but if they knew what the phrase really meant, I'm not sure that they'd make the claim. Back in the bad old days, as a warning to criminals, judges would order malcontents to be hung by their ankles, heels over head. The phrase came to mean a state of helplessness, confusion. Now that I think of it, that is being in love.

    • Prisoner: Doesn't that bother you a little? He's dying cause of you.
      Pancamo: No, this is the life we chose.
      Prisoner: Sure, but, Chuckie, are you afraid of dying?
      Pancamo: No.
      Howell: What the fuck are you doing with a cigarette, Pancamo?
      Pancamo: Smoking it?
      Howell: Put it out now, or I'm coming in there.
      Pancamo: Now, her, I'm afraid of.

    • McManus: Quiet night?
      Phelan: If you count two fistfights and some anal penetration as quiet, yeah.

    • McManus: You know what I said, about being mad at you because you didn't quit when I was fired? That's bullshit. Given my behaviour at the time, how could I possibly pass judgment on what anyone else did?
      Murphy: Tim, you sound so enlightened. You found God?
      McManus: Better, an affordable shrink.

    • Adebisi: Well, me and Supreme, we have an understanding.
      Arif: You can't trust him.
      Adebisi: What are you suggesting?
      Arif: You should do what you usually do when you face an enemy.
      Adebisi: You mean kill him? I thought you Muslims were against murder. Ah, yeah, but it's okay if I kill him for you, eh?
      Arif: Adebisi -
      Adebisi: No. I says no. You want him dead, grab your knife, eh?

    • Arif: I've been trying to get five minutes with you for days.
      Querns: Well, you got them now. Don't waste them by complaining.
