    • QUOTES (16)

      • Beecher: You hate the law? Well, I love it. I love the law, even if it didn't turn out in my favor. You know why I love the laws we have in this state? Because it keeps people like Schillinger, Adebisi and Hernandez away from my kids.

      • Galino: (after painting the cell) Careful of the fumes, you might get high.
        Bellinger: I'm looking forward to it.

      • Beecher: Back so soon?
        Said: Yeah. There was a complication.
        Beecher: There always is with you.

      • Wendy: Have you forgotten the riot?
        Warden Glynn: The riot was not Tim's fault.
        Wendy: This entire history of Emerald City has been a disaster. He's a weak limp-wristed liberal and you gotta toss him out with the other garbage.

      • Bellinger: (to Miles)You murdered two of your families? My, my, that makes me feel like a down right amateur.

      • Bellinger: Gentlemen, please, no ruckus. At least wait 'til I'm dead.
        Deyell: They set the date yet?
        Bellinger: Two weeks.
        Deyell: That don't fuck with your head?
        Bellinger: No, after all the bullshit, the trial, the appeals, the
        miscarriage, I'm ready to go. I am ready to meet my maker.

      • Bellinger: Good morning, Officer Lopresti. And who is this fine gentleman?
        Lopresti: Ralph Galino. He's gonna paint your cell.
        Bellinger: How do you do?
        Galino: Well, the truth be told, I'm a little pissed off. On the outside, I was a contractor. A housing complex I built collapsed, killed two people, but
        it wasn't my fault. I used to supervise painters, I never painted. Somehow,
        the Warden decided I was qualified.

      • Busmalis: Hey. How you doing there, Alvarez? I heard what happened.
        Alvarez: How's Emerald City doing?
        Busmalis: Scary. I'm in constant fear.
        Alvarez: Well, what are you gonna do?
        Busmalis: Dig.
        Alvarez: What?
        Busmalis: Dig.
        Alvarez: You digging another tunnel?
        Busmalis: Shhhh, I'm almost done.
        Alvarez: You're a crazy fuck.
        Busmalis: You say that tomorrow, you'll be saying it to my backside.

      • Kramer: Would you say you're prejudiced against me?
        Said: No. I pray every day for your kind to find the way to God.
        Kramer: Seems to me that makes you all the more prejudiced. I mean, I'm not going around asking Allah to turn you into a faggot.

      • Tricia Ross: (to Said) You know what? Everything that I respect about you, also really pisses me off.

      • Mukada: Vern.
        Schillinger: What the Hell (sees that its Father Mukada) Ssorry. What the heck do you want?

      • Schillinger: Hey, Beecher, sorry about what happened to your little butt buddy. Of course, knowing that kind, he's probably fucked half his nurses and a couple orderlies by now. Hope he don't come back to you with any of them staph infections.

      • Said: You were tormented in your roll in the death over Andrew Schillinger. You went looking, you came to me, you asked for guidance in the ways of Islam. You felt comfort, peace of mind in the arms of Allah. But, you have this thing between you and Keller. Homosexual acts are a blasphemy.
        Beecher: I know that. I don't want to love him, Kareem, but I do. And as for Allah, I'll take my chances with him when the time comes.

      • Murphy: Beecher, we had a major incident here, all right? And now we've lost Tim McManus. Your boyfriend's health ain't a priority for me.

      • (at Officer Howard's memorial service)
        McManus: Joe loved to bet on the horses, and so, in honor of him, I would like to ... (starts singing) Camp town races sing this song, doo-dah, doo-dah

      • Poet: You have no heart Adebisi.
        Adebisi: I have a heart. I have a heart of a lion. Instead of crying for Kenny and Junior, help me revenge them.
        Poet: Revenge against who, Adebisi? Tarrant greased himself.
        Adebisi: You see, against them. All of those white bastards.
        Poet: Wasn't no fucking white bastard that poured hot soup on my face, scarring my skin. That was you, that was you!
        Adebisi: Yeah, that was then, this is now. If you'd been standing one inch to the left when the shooting started, you'd be dead and Kenny Wangler would be my new best friend.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Miguel escaped from prison for the next 7 episodes, because Kirk had escaped from the show for a while for a role in the HBO/Spielberg mini-series, "Band of Brothers".

      • Tim McManus lost his job as head of Emerald City for the next several episodes, primarily because Terry Kinney had to take time off to direct a production for the Steppenwolf Theatre Company, which he co-founded with Gary Sinise and others.

      • Special thanks were given to Edie Falco and Charles S. Dutton. Edie had a small audio cameo and scenes from "The Tip" were used as a campaign ad for Alvah Case.
