  • Trivia

    • When Sara kicks her shoe through the window to get Lincoln's attention, it was only a slipper and it would be very hard to get a slipper like that through a pane of glass.

    • Goof: In the beginning of the episode, when Lincoln receives an envelope with two pictures of LJ and Sara, Sara's eye is covered by her hair. Later on, Linc gives Sara's picture to Michael. In this scene they show the same picture. However, when Michael takes a closer look it's a picture where you can see her two eyes.

    • When Lincoln shows Sucre the pictures of LJ and Sara, it's someone else holding the pictures in the close up. The skin of the hands is too pale to be Sucre's.

    • Agent Mahone was born in Boardman, Ohio, which is located in north eastern Ohio, just north east of the hospital that Michael wanted Sara to meet him in season 2.

    • While the picture of Sara was the actual actress's, the voice was not, nor was the person in the show. A body and voice double were used.

  • Quotes

    • Michael (to Whistler): Some very bad people who have done some very bad things want you alive and out of this prison, which is why every bone in my body is telling me to do the opposite.

    • Whistler: My life is in your hands. How do I know I can trust you?
      Michael: You don't.

    • Susan B.: Busy day?
      Lincoln: Not as busy as I'd hoped.

    • McGrady: Doesn't take long for a man to become an animal, no?

    • Michael: I'll let your compadres know who you are, what you've done and who you've done it to.
      T-Bag: Let me get this straight: you're saying you're going to tell on me?

    • Lechero (to T-Bag): I deny your request. You're going to stay on as my ears. You'll report back to me everything that you hear when I'm not around.

    • Lincoln: Michael got the bounty off Whistler's head in two days. That's more than your people could do in two weeks. Show some goodwill.
      Susan B.: He'll get his goodwill when Whistler's out.

    • Whistler (to Sofia): Why would I lie to you? You're the only one I can trust.

    • Michael: She's (Sara) trying to tell us where she is. I have to talk to her, Linc.

    • Michael: I think it's time to make good on all the bad you've done, Theodore. You and me, we're gonna make a deal. Lechero has a cell phone. I need it.
      T-Bag: No problem. Shall I turn water into wine while I'm at it? Maybe give the guy's mother a good rogerin'?
      Michael: She'll be a little old for your taste, no?
      T-Bag: Careful, Pretty. Don't bite the hand you're trying to get fed out of.

    • (Lincoln asks Susan if Michael can call Sara)
      Susan: Absolutely not!
      Lincoln: It ain't a request. It's a dictation of terms. My brother ain't thinking about escaping until he talks to Sara.
      Susan: Oh, that's sweet. I can assure you of two things, Lincoln. One; that Sara's fine and two; you have a better chance at banging me on that bar than you do of talking to her.
      Lincoln: I appreciate the offer but I'll pass.
      Susan: Yeah?
      Lincoln: Yeah.
      Susan: Oh, what if that's a dictation of terms?

    • T-Bag (to Michael): If that phone ain't back on the cradle, we're both dead, you hear me? Cause my Alabama ass is not going down alone.

    • Lincoln (to Susan): One thing you should know about my brother, he's very stubborn. You want him to fetch, you throw him a bone.

    • Lechero (talking with Michael): You help me? I'm the bucky massa here, boy. Me. Not you. So if anyone want anything at Sona, it's me them will come to. So do not walk in here asking for se favor like we have some understanding. No, no, no, no, no. We do not. The next time you roll in here like that, boy, the only thing you ask me for is mercy.

    • T-Bag: I... you know, in fact, that-that there might just be the best shave I have ever seen.

    • Raul: Mr. Mahone, Raul Darinda. I'm the public defender appointed to your case.
      Mahone: That's uh... that's great. I've been putting some notes that I...
      Raul: Sir, I have some great news. We got you a trial date.
      Mahone: That's really... Thank God. When?
      Raul: June 13th.
      Mahone: I don't know... wait, wait. June 13th, June 13th... that was last week. What, we missed it?
      Raul: June 13th of next year, Mr. Mahone.
      Mahone: Next year? How the hell is that great news?
      Raul: Usually takes two and a half year for a non-citizen to get before a judge.
      Mahone: I've got a guy in here. His name is Michael Scofield. And he will testify that he set me up, and that he put the drugs on the boat.
      Raul: Which will all be taken into consideration...
      Mahone: A year from now!
