    • After Adebisi has his drug test he is sent to see Sister Pete. The Goomba figure he is holding is from a Super Mario Bros. 3 McDonalds Happy Meal from 1990.

    • When Adebisi has to produce a urine sample, he flops out his penis causing the guard to push him away with his right hand. But in the next shot, the guard is using his left hand to push Adebisi away.

    • There is a mistake regarding Hoyt and Poet's arrest time. Poet was arrested on July 20th 1998 and would be returning to Oz, according to Beecher. However, Hoyt was arrested on August 12th 1998 and is seen in Oz before Poet's arrival, therefore a time paradox.

      Rivera: What the fuck are you talking about?
      Alvarez: Nice to see you.

    • Alvarez: Yo, man, I used to run shit around here. And you know, I got no problem with you taking over. I mean, you're El Cid. You have cojones. But, yo, ever since you came in, man, I been low, man. I get my face in the dirt every day. I just wanna know what I gotta do to get in your good graces.
      Hernandez: Change your skin, man. You're too white.

    • Wangler: That's fucking what I heard, Rebadow collected like 3Gs. And that money's gone tomorrow. Know what? I'm thinking we go to Rebadow, we take the dough, and so these other fucks don't get mad, we make Rebadow swear he sent it.

      Pancamo: What for?
      Nappa: If he eats her blood, she can control him forever. (looks over at Adebesi) Somebody's got Adebisi under a spell. Too bad it's not us.

      Nappa: No, his actual godfather, at baptism.

    • (discussing Bellinger's note to Adebesi)
      Ryan: Let me see. Bellinger says that tomorrow is her birthday and it's her last birthday on earth. And the only thing that she really wants to do is to see your brawny body naked and suck your cock.
      Adebisi: Where does it say that? Where does it say that?
      Ryan: (pointing) Right there. Fellatio. Cunnilingus. Girlfriend can spell.

    • Ryan: Hey.
      Adebisi: Go away. You got diseases.
      Ryan: I'm cured Adebisi. Cancer's not contagious.
      Adebisi: That's what they say.
      Ryan: Look, I want back in the kitchen.
      Adebisi: No.
      Ryan: Christ haven't I always been there for you?
      Adebisi: No.

    • (A news article has said that sex offenders need to register with the local police)
      Coushaine: They can't do that. It's Orwellian.
      Wangler: Or-who-i-an?
      Coushaine: If a man pays his debt to society, if he redeems himself, he deserves a chance at a normal life when he gets out.
      Wangler: Perverts aren't normal. I mean, if one moves next door to me, I'd wanna know about it.

      Ryan: Hey, I'll do anything you ask me to. Anything.
      McManus: A deal?
      Ryan: Yeah.
      McManus: OK, I want you to rat on somebody.
      Ryan: Who?
      McManus: Yourself

    • Cyril: (to Ryan) I think I did a bad thing.

    • Ryan: Why are you so suddenly interested in me and my family, Coushaine?
      Coushaine: I don't know. You're both brothers, both inmates in the same prison. It's just kinda ...
      Ryan: What? You trying to convert us? Give Cyril and me a family discount?
