      • Said tells Hamid Khan that 8 prisoners died in the riot, but in The Tip it was said that 6 prisoners and 2 COs died.

    • QUOTES (15)

      • McManus: So before Metzger came to town, he lived in Montana where he was part of the White Supremacy Warriors.
        Sister Peter Marie: You sure of this, Tim?
        McManus: I got a friend who works in the FBI who verified it.
        Warden Glynn: Even so, you can't fire a man for what he did 15 years ago. I need proof that he's in cahoots with Vern Schillinger, that he's responsible for what happened to Busmalis, Beecher, and the others.
        McManus: Nobody will testify against Metzger.
        Warden Glynn: Well, the union's not gonna let us do anything without evidence. He's also very popular with the other CO's. I don't need any more morale problems.
        McManus: So we let him stay on board till maybe he kills somebody?
        Warden Glynn: I'm afraid, we have no choice.
        McManus: Even though he only thinks of you as a nigger?
        Warden Glynn: What did you say?
        McManus: A nigger.
        Warden Glynn: If you're trying to piss me off, you're succeeding. I don't want Metzger in this building one minute longer than you do. But if I'm going to take him down, I'm gonna need ammunition.

      • Bellinger: Hi there. I'm Shirley.
        Hanlon: Yeah, I know. Shirley Bellinger, only woman on death row, looks like I'm the only man.
        Bellinger: Adam and Eve.
        Hanlon: No, this ain't no garden of Eden.

      • Keller: O'Reily, you hear what happened in the gym? Bikers attacked Schillinger.
        Ryan: Is he dead?
        Keller: Escaped without a scratch.
        Ryan: Godammit! Fuck!

      • Ryan: I'd fucking airhole him but he's always got the Aryans or the bikers around him. I just can't get fucking close.
        Poet: Unless...
        Ryan: Unless... Who knew? You think like I do.
        Poet: That's a scary thought

      • Clayton Hughes: I completed CO training, came in second in my class.
        Glynn: Does your mother know?
        Clayton Hughes: I want to surprise her.
        Glynn: You're gonna surprise her, all right, you're gonna give her heart failure.
        Clayton Hughes: Not if I have your support. Leo, after dad died you were always there for me, be there for me now.
        Glynn: When the hell did you grow up? Last time I looked you were seven.

      • Beecher: How stupid do you think I am? You let me break your legs... and then you snitch on me.
        Keller: I won't. I swear.
        Beecher: Swear, promise, take an oath, make a vow then go fuck yourself.

      • McManus: Metzger, I know who you are. I know what you are.
        Metzger: All I am is a highly trained, underpaid member of the Correctional Officers Benevolent Association. (pauses) But if I am what you think I am, you should tiptoe.
        McManus: Is that a threat?
        Metzger: I'm merely reminding you who your friends are. Remember who you want standing next to you when one of these fucks comes after you with a knife.

      • Schillinger: It's called 'miscegenation'. Mixing of the races. That's m-i-s-c-e-g-e-n-a-t-i-o-n. I get that spelling right?
        Said: What exactly are you after, Schillinger?
        Schillinger: Oh, it's not about what I'm after, your holiness. It's you. I saw you in the visiting room with that piece of trailer park trash.
        Said: That was a business meeting.
        Schillinger: What kind of business? Monkey business? Oh shit, sorry. Forgot I'm not supposed to call you people monkeys.

      • McManus: Brass knuckles?
        Ryan: Yeah, they were a birthday gift from my aunt. I didn't ask her to send them. She's a fucking nutjob.

      • Schillinger: Listen, Hoyt. Wanna start pulling scams in here behind my back, I'll get you transferred out of here faster than you can fucking spit.
        (Hoyt spits)

      • Wittlesey: You the new girl.
        Howell: Girl?

      • Ryan: Adebisi, what are you up to?
        Adebisi: Nothing
        Ryan: Look, this is me you're talking to. You gonna tell me you're not gonna get revenge on the wops and Wangler?
        Adebisi: That's right.
        Ryan: Look, whatever drugs they had you on in the psych ward, I hope you brought some to share.

      • Alvarez: What happened with Rivera right? He's a hack, so all the other hacks, they forget to feed me.
        Mukada: How often do they forget?
        Alvarez: I dunno. I eat about, just twice a week.
        Mukada: Shit. Miguel you have to...
        Alvarez: You promised me. You promised me. I don't get any water, you know ...
        Mukada: So what have you been drinking?
        Alvarez: Stuff in the toilet. My own piss.

      • Augustus: There are some confessions you can't even make to yourself. Yearnings, desires, that you admitted to having you'd had to stop being who you are. And the facade you build so carefully will crumble, exposing to those around you, what really makes you tick.

      • Shirley: You show me your prick, and I'll show you mu pussy.
        Richie: I'm gay.
        Shirley: Look, I don't care if you're Portuguese. I don't wanna die with never having seen another prick again.
