      • When Wittlesey enters McManus' office, she picks up a piece of paper but in the next shot, she isn't holding it anymore.

      • The newscaster says that Shirley killed her 4 year old daughter, however in s4e4 "Works of Mercy" he says " the murder of her 8 year old daughter".

      • When Kareem and Augustus are talking to the assistant district attorney there is a pen on the table in the first scene, but in the next scene, it's gone. In the fourth scene, back to The attorney, the pen is back.

    • QUOTES (14)

      • Hill: (narrating) You want some facts? The US Department of Justice reports that the typical prisoner in America is an undereducated, young male minority. But you could've guessed that. If that undereducated, young male minority recieves his GED in prison, he is far less likely to come back. If that same kid manages to go to college while he's inside, he'll almost definately never see a prison cell again.

      • McManus: Booker T. Washington, do you know who he is?
        Wangler: Yeah. Booker T. and the MGs.
        McManus: No, it's a different guy.

      • Shirley:(arriving on Death Row) How comfy.

      • Schillinger: The Brotherhood's falling apart. When I ran the Brotherhood, we were feared. Now we got fucking fags looking tougher.

      • Beecher: Hey, Vern they let you out of the hole already? You're mad at me, aren't you? Sure, you're mad and I understand why. I fucked up your chances for parole, you're facing ten more years in Oz, all because of me. Oh, man! I manipulated you like the dumbass, white trash neanderthal you are. You know, you get to know a lot about a man while he's fucking you in the ass.

      • Beecher: We voted you sexiest.
        Sister Pete: Sexiest, sexiest what?
        Beecher: Woman in the prison.
        Sister Pete: Oh, come on. Really?
        Beecher: Uh-huh!

      • Hill: I'd fuck Dr. Nathan in a second.
        Busmalis: Me too.
        Beecher: How about Wittlesey?
        Hill: Shit, yeah!
        Busmalis: Me too.
        Beecher: You know who I think is sexy, Sister Peter Marie.
        Hill: Yeah?
        Busmalis: That's disgusting! She's a nun.

      • Adebisi: You think you're going to disrespect me, huh? You forget who your friends are Kenny? You not my friend, then you're my enemy, understand?
        Wangler: Yeah.

      • Hill: (narrating) Bad men have their impact too. But you gotta be really bad. Ivan the Terrible, Jack the Ripper, Adolf Hitler. Yeah, old Adolph was an evil fuck. And let's face it. Evil is the only thing that has survived intact these past thousand years.

      • Peter Schibetta : Look, I can persuade Alvarez to give up the name of the prick who did this.
        Glynn: No, thanks.
        Peter Schibetta: Why not? Hey, why not? Why not?
        Glynn: First, I don't want to owe you any more favors. And second, and I know you won't understand this, but it's not right.
        Peter Schibetta: Right, wrong, right, wrong. There's such a fine line between it.

      • Glynn: Tell me who raped her.
        Alvarez: I ain't telling you dick. You got all the power, huh? I mean, you think that you can just shit on people, shit on people and you get away with it? Not this time. And you can go fuck yourself.
        Father Mukada: Miguel, for God's sake, tell him what you heard about his daughter.
        Alvarez: What? That she's a lousy lay?

      • Alvarez: Hey, Rebadow. You know, I think I got you. I think I got a piece of information before you.
        Rebadow: Really?
        Alvarez: Mmm-hmm! It's about Glynn and his daughter.
        Rebadow: You mean that she was brutally raped and is in the hospital?
        Alvarez: Shit! How'd you know that?

      • (Hanlon is coming in to report details of a rape)
        Mukada: Come in Richie. What's up?
        Hanlon: I love to take it in the ass.
        Mukada: (pauses uncertainly) Uh-huh.

      • Hill: Aw, fuck.
        Beecher: What?
        Hill: Beecher!
        Beecher: WHAT!?
        Hill: You farted!
        Beecher: No, I didn't!
        Hill: Pee-fucking-ew!
        Beecher: I didn't fart!
        Hill: Damn, man, five hours til dawn and I gotta be in a glass box with the king of stink. I'm gonna get Gulf fucking War syndrome!
