The dentist recommends gum replacement surgery. Alvarez wants to give his dog to Eugene Rivera (the Oz guard he blinded). Cyril's trial looms and gets off to an inauspiciously cold start.

    This episode it's nice and all that, usual OZ action. Only with some musical bits and acts. Which I found kinda funny. And I feel sorry for Hill, he's the only convict that seems human to me, and I began to like him. I don't want him to air off the show! But I've heard he dies this season, so chances are zero. And for Keller, only bad news. It would so suck if he dies too. It will be very boring! And that ugly oc woman, I don't remember her name, the one who was involved with O'Riley too, is so annoying and meeeean! I think she's nimfo or something. And that boy who knew Becheer, omg! I saw that he was ungrateful and treating Becheer badly after all the things he done for him, but, waht Schilinger made with the boy was worse. He didn't deserved it. He looked like ****moreless

    • When Glynn is talking to Sister Pete, his hand is resting underneath his chin but in the next shot, his hand is not there.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Dr. Tariq Faraj: while performing dental surgery on Robson You know, with all your warped ideology, I bet you never gave a thought as to why Adolf was so pissed off at the Jews. One theory is that he was traumatized by the death of his mother. She died of breast cancer and was in the care of a Jewish physician. So his repressed hatred manifested itself into the Holocaust. Another theory is that Hitler's father was the illegitimate son a German woman and some obscure Jewish man, so Hitler himself had impure blood.
      Robson starts wriggling
      Dr. Tariq Faraj: Now, now, don't make me slip. 'Cause if I slip, then we are both in trouble. It's amazing. I mean we don't even know where this gum tissue came from. It could be a kike, a spic, maybe even a faggot.
      Robson: garbles Not a faggot.
      Dr. Tariq Faraj: I mean you could be getting the beautiful gums of a big, black nigger.
      Robson looks horrified

    • (Robson tells Schillinger about his gum surgery)
      Robson: Now you see why I hate the dentist?
      Schillinger: It's not their fault, Robson. You wait years between cleanings, you never floss and you brush your teeth the way you scratch your scrotum.

    • (Robson has been told he needs surgery for his gums and is not pleased about it)
      Robson: What kind of fucking surgery?
      Faraj: Well, you have two choices. The conventional method is to take palatal tissue from the roof of your mouth and graft it to your gums.
      Robson: (deadpan) Oh, shit, that sounds fucking painful.
      Faraj: It is painful. The alternative is an acellular dermal graft, where we use the gum tissue from a cadaver.
      Robson: You're kidding. Some dead persons fucking gums in my mouth?
      Faraj: Well, you can think of it as organ donation.
      Robson: Sounds fucking creepy.
      Faraj: Well, the use of your own fucking tissue would require a longer and more painful period of fucking recovery. In the end, your fucking gums would be healthy either fucking way.
      Robson: Are you mocking me, Faraj?
      Faraj: Fuck no.

    • (In the cafeteria, Robson sits down with only a bottle of juice)
      Schillinger: Not much of a meal there.
      Robson: Yeah, nothing cold or crunchy.
      Aryan: Why, you on a diet?
      Robson: (sarcastically) Because it hurts, dipshit, do I look fat to you? (sips his juice) Goddamn it! Suddenly ice cream, croutons, it's like getting your gums raked. What the fuck is that?
      Aryan: They're probably recessive. (Schillinger and Robson stare at him) My old man had bad gums.
      Schillinger: When's the last time you got a cleaning?
      Robson: I don't know, five or six years ago. I hate the fucking dentist.
      Aryan: Don't fuck around with your mouth. My old man didn't deal, his mouth
      ended up a train wreck.

    • Said: Power, it's as evil a drug as anything else.

    • Suzanne: (to White just before he performs) I would tell you to imagine that they're all naked...but I guess you've already seen a lot of them naked.

    • (Guenzel has just been transferred to Unit B)
      Winthrop: 'How the mighty hath fallen.'
      Guenzel: Fuck you, faggot!
      Schillinger: Guenzel!
      Guenzel: Hey Vern. Boys in Em City send their regards.
      Schillinger: Shut up!
      Guenzel: But I was just -
      (Schillinger bitch-slaps him)
      Schillinger: Speak when you're spoken to!
      (some Aryans grab Guenzel and drag him into the storage room)
      Winthrop: (approaches Schillinger) Sir. May I watch?
      Schillinger: Well if you don't, how are you ever going to learn?

    • Sister Pete: Look at us! We're complete and utter failures at out jobs.
      Dr Nathan: So what do we do instead?
      Sister Pete: Form an all girl band?

    • Sister Pete: I want to find the three men who raped Peter Schibetta.
      Glynn: Why?
      Sister Pete: Why Leo? Why?
      Glynn: Look, we're doing everything we can to keep the number of reported rapes down.
      Sister Pete: Reported? Listen to you, your own daughter was raped.
      Glynn: Well... this is different. This is Oz.
      Sister Pete: Rape is rape, Leo.
      Glynn: I don't agree. Here, rape has a leveling effect. Peter Schibetta, from the day he arrived, wanted to be a tough guy, wanted to follow in his father's footsteps, running things, hurting people. Well, he got stopped by Adebisi, and now he got stopped again.
      Sister Pete: What's going on? Do you have something personal against Schibetta?
      Glynn: No, no, it's simply … survival of the fittest, as natural and basic as Darwin.
      Sister Pete: You and I have disagreed about a lot of things over the years, but this is -
      Glynn: Peter Marie...
      Sister Pete: A leveling effect? You want rape to do your job?

    • Meehan: Look, I have a meeting tomorrow with Father Mukada, and I was
      thinking that -
      Ryan: Lights out means shut the fuck up.

    • Ryan: Jesus you pray a lot.
      Meehan: I need a lot from my God, strength, guidance, forgiveness
      Ryan: While you're at it, ask him to bring back conjugal visits.

    • (Sister Pete has just given Cyril a sock puppet to try and prevent him disrupting the court during his murder trial)
      Cyril: We have to give the puppet a name.
      Sister Pete: Good. What do you want to call him?
      Cyril: Jericho
      Sister Pete: Why Jericho?
      Cyril: (deep voice) Cause the walls came tumbling down.

    • (Father Daniel Meehan's first day in OZ)
      Meehan: I'm on the bottom?
      Ryan: You got that right.

    • (Robson's can't eat solids because of a sore mouth)
      Schillinger: If I was you I'd go see Dr. Faraj, unless you want to be slurping turkey milkshakes in middleage.
      Robson: Faraj? I don't want some n*****s paws probing my mouth.
      Schillinger: They wear gloves now, you know. Since AIDS came along.
      Robson: Oh.
