  • pathetic show

    1.5
    I tried to "edit" my review, it wouldn't let me....I wanted to add that the duffel bag switch was totally ridiculous too...Michael would have made sure the MONEY was in the correct duffle bag...he would NOT have let T-bag switch. NO surprises in the one or ALL season! I knew there would be NO $$ in the bag. I finally got my husband to watch a series...we keep WATCHING and WAITING for something...anything logical to happen! or at least a SURPRISE....dont understand the positive reviews this show recieved tonight or all season!!!!!!moreless
  • Continuation of Good material, from the beginning, until the end, make this episodes scenes great!!!

    8.0
    From the Writers Perspective:



    This type of episode was well written, since you have twist in the beginning, a good final Scene, Michael and Sucre Friendiship in game, Sara in great danger, Lincoln trying to recover is son.



    The twist in the beginning regarding Sucre and T-Bag was very well written. After that, we have sara in danger, trying to escape from certain death, from the same agent that killed Veronica, this was nice, since the audience could feel that Sara is Done.



    T-bad will have a difficult life, now that Bellick and GAry are looking him, and like Abruzzi, he has a weak point, and the writers did a good jobs, making the setups about that.



    When Michael and Sucre tried to escape, there was filler scenes, but in the end, managed to build a solid friendship between them and a new information.



    Mahone is in trouble, but not for very long, in the end, we know why Mahone Killed Tweener, The final scenes was well done, make the impression that they all are in great danger, they have to escape, since if they don´t, they will die.



    How Lincoln actually recovered is Son was interesting, since the audience didn´t have much credibility on him, but now is a different case.



    My Point of View:



    For the first time, I liked Sara Scenes, when she was in danger, all the scenes were interesting and she is putting all the pieces together. Also Kellerman finally are doing something. How sara another complication arises, was very interesting.



    Michael and Sucre Friendship was tested, even if the scenes managed to buy time, It is beautiful how they friendship became so solid. Also we finally have news about maricruz.



    T-bag still a guy that I expected that he will be caught, but now I am cheering for him, because I don´t want Bellick and Gary with all this money.



    Only the final Scene with Mahone was excellent, I feel sorry for C Note and his Family.



    Lincoln in this episode surprised me, the way he recovered is son, was credible.



    Now things are moving into a interesting direction.



    Overall, this episode managed to be great, with all the characters scenes in sync, and with good short conclusions and complications. This is the type of episode that deserve a 8, because have good scenes from the beginning, middle and in the end too.moreless
  • Amazing.

    9.5
    The fugitives split up again. Mahone is investigated by Internal Affairs regarding Tweener's death. Lincoln travels to Arizona to find LJ. Sara is hunted by "The Company". Bellick and Geary return to the hunt. Another awesome episode from Prison Break. How good is this show? T-Bag is amazing getting off with the bag full of money, it is just like him to do that. Sucre and Michael were awesome in this episode, like always. Bellick is back, yay. I was wondering were he got to, but he is back. Well, awesome episode can not wait to see more. Bring it on!moreless
  • Lincoln and Micheal get away with the money, just about!

    9.3
    Just when we thought Sucre had transgressed to the dark side, it turns out that, like all the sneakiest of plans, making off with the cash was all Michael's idea. It was the only way to get rid of T-Bag. The two skip through the forest but their joy is short-lived; T-Bag switched the backpacks and is now a very rich lone ranger. Lincoln hides in the shadows with his beady eye on LJ as he walks free but the sharks are circling. Remembering the hazy days of the Fox River infirmary, Link outsmarts his pursuers by paying a tramp to beat his son up then swiping him from the hospital. And while Mahone's methods come under fire, Sara escapes an attempt to stage her suicide only to see an innocent woman killed in her place. Sucre's bike is hindering their flight. After trying to ditch it in the river, Sucre ends up chin-deep in rushing water, his feet jammed under a log. As sirens and sniffer-dogs close in, Michael panics. "Leave me here or we both get caught," Sucre pleads but Michael's not a man who abandons his friends. He pulls off an elaborate stunt to free his former cellmate.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • According to the credits, it's revealed that Petey's last name is Cordero.

    • 5 million dollars should weigh about 110-120 pounds. Even for such big men as portrayed in the series it would be too heavy to run around with smiles on their faces.

    • The agent that was assigned to kill Sara in her apartment in Illinois, but failed - was the same agent that killed Veronica in Terrence Steadman's house in Montana, back in Manhunt.

  • QUOTES (30)

    • (Sucre is holding a gun on the other convicts)
      Sucre: The backpack. Now!
      Michael: Don't do this, buddy.
      C-Note: Yo, take a look around you, papi: there's three of us, there's one of you. You are outnumbered, man, and we will come after you.
      Sucre: It'll be the last thing you do.
      T-Bag: What, are you gonna shoot all of us?
      Sucre: Probably not. (shoots the ground near T-Bag's feet) But I will get two. Now, which two is it gonna be? (pause) That's what I thought. Adios, amigos.

    • Sullens (to Mahone): I will chain you to this desk until I get answers I cannot fertilize my lawn with.

    • Geary: Do you really think the diaper sniper got all of it?
      Bellick: Only one way to find out. If you're Bagwell and you just got your hands on $5 million, where would you go?

    • Mahone: You know, I understand the reasons behind Burrows and Scofield, but these other men, criminals that they might be, there's nothing in their profiles....
      Kellerman: You've been hired to do a job. The reasoning does not concern you.

    • Sucre: In the river, I told you to leave me behind.
      Michael: Well, I tried but I got tangled down with a rope, so... (Sucre laughs, and they hug each other)

    • Sucre: This isn't how it was supposed to go. The whole reason I went along with the break it was to have a life with Maricruz and my baby, and now what? Get some toe pay job? Always be looking over my shoulder? What kind of life is that?
      Michael: You can come with me and Linc. To Panama. Start over.
      Sucre: As long as you stay here, the more the chances you're gonna never make it to Panama. Now you got your people to think about, your brother, your nephew, Sara.... She's meeting you down there, isn't she?
      Michael: I don't know, we never talked about it.
      Sucre: But you're hoping.
      Michael: Just give it a rest, will you?

    • Kim: So what do you suggest we do?
      Kellerman: Ever go fishing Bill?
      Kim: Just make your point.
      Kellerman: There's two ways to catch a fish. You cast a big net and hope you get what you're looking for or you choose the right bait and guarantee that you do. It's a simply strategy, plays across the board, LJ will lead us to Burrows, Sara will lead us to Scofield.
      Kim: And how do you intend to follow Sara when the only lead you've got is an origami bird with an out of service phone number?
      Kellerman: Maybe it's not a phone number.

    • Sara: My father didn't commit suicide. (smashes a vase) Blond Agent: What are you doing? Sara (smashes another vase): Making sure it doesn't look like I did it. People would ask questions if the day the governor killed himself, his daughter is found dead in what it looks like a struggle. (She takes one of the broken pieces and cuts her arm) Blond Agent (pulling a gun): Well, what if they don't find her? In an apparent attempt to avoid jail time, the governor's daughter skips bail and disappears. I'm talking about your last minutes, Ms. Tancredi. Sara: Please don't do this. Blond Agent: That stuff on the table is premium. Grade A. Do yourself a favor, go out on a high. Sara: Look, look, I'm begging you here! Blond Agent: One last ride (Sara picks up a can of insect spray and sprays Agent Blond in the eyes, before tipping a table over him and escaping her apartment)

    • Agent: The kid (L.J.) didn't bite. He's on his way.
      Kellerman: Have your men follow him. Remember, it's the father we want.

    • Sucre: This is business, five million dollars worth of business.

    • Mahone (to Sullens): If you knew anything about a manhunt, you'd be out there running one, instead of hamstringing the men who are.

    • Michael: Once a thief, always a thief.
      Sucre: You're just figuring that out?

    • Michael: I let that psychopath T-Bag loose once. I'm not gonna do it again.

    • Michael: We're never gonna get out of here on the roads. We need to find another way.

    • Sullens: You have two dead bodies, Alex.
      Mahone: I've got two dead felons, Richard. Now maybe that doesn't play well from a public relations standpoint, but from a public safety standpoint, Abruzzi and Apolskis were by the book.
      Sullens: The shooting of an unarmed kid at pointblank range is by the book?

    • Sucre (crossing the log on the river): I've heard about these kind of places. They got leeches, you know?
      Michael: I'll take the leeches in here over the handcuffs back there.

    • Sucre: Look Michael, I understand if you have to keep going, you know?
      Michael: Just shut up. I'm not going anywhere.
      Sucre: Look, just think about it.
      Michael: You know, if I leave, you drown.
      Sucre: No, I know, but just…
      Michael: The water level's getting higher, Sucre. How many seconds can you hold your breath, 45? 60? That's how long you've got to live if I take off.
      Sucre: How long have you got if you stay? How long 'til the dogs lead the cops to you?
      Michael: What you're suggesting is not an option.
      Sucre: Look, I ain't tryin' to be a hero or nothin'. We both know there's only two things that can happen now. Leave me here, or we both get caught.

    • Sara (answering cell phone): Bruce?
      Bruce: Sara. I know we said not to use this number, but I just needed to know you were okay. My driver said he went to pick you up and the place was a crime scene.
      Sara: Yeah, the woman that he saw? The woman by the payphone? That was supposed to be me. And, I had to leave her there. I didn't know what to do. Bruce, who are these people? They knew exactly where I was gonna be standing, they knew exactly where I was gonna be –
      Bruce: Sara? You there?
      Sara: It was you.
      Bruce: What are you talking about? I just need to know where you – (Sara hangs up the phone)
      Sara: Oh my God.

    • L.J.: Let me get this straight. You paid that meth head to whoop my ass?
      Lincoln: Yeah. Feds were waitin' for me to come get you. It was the only way. It worked, didn't it?
      L.J.: Yeah, it got me four stitches.
      Lincoln: Adds character.

    • Michael: We gotta lose the bike.
      Sucre: Unhuh. No way.
      Michael: The roads are sealed. (looking at the river) It's the only way we're gonna make it out.
      Sucre: I can't go, bro! I promised –
      Michael: You're not gettin' that thing across the river. Every minute we spend trying is a minute we don't have, ok? I'm sorry. But we gotta move.

    • Kim: What does an origami bird have to do with any of this?
      Kellerman: Michael Scofield sent it to her. And since your brilliant plan to eliminate Sara Tancredi from the equation failed so completely...
      Kim: I wouldn't say it failed completely at all...
      Kellerman: There's a dead woman in a phone booth. Civilian. A certain number of bodies you can sweep under the rug. The president's rug is getting so full you can barely stand on it.

    • Sullens: Alex. Thanks for comin' in.
      Mahone: You wanna tell me why Internal Affairs is pullin' me out of the field in the middle of a manhunt?
      Sullens: It's been a while since we've had a sit-down, hasn't it? Not since Shales's escape.
      Mahone: Yeah, yeah. What's goin' on, Richard?
      Sullens: Well, that's precisely what I'm here to find out. (closes office door) You're not getting outta here until I do.

    • Sara (while trying to figure out the message): What are you trying to tell me Michael?

    • Roy Geary: First thing I do when we get home: clean underwear.

    • Kellerman: You know even we have to go through certain channels to make sure things appear on the up and up.

    • Sucre (to Michael): It's okay, Papi. Let me go.

    • Michael: Adios, amigos, huh?
      Sucre: What, too much?

    • (Over the phone)
      Sucre: Hey, Petey, uh, it's me. Listen, I've got something to tell you.
      Petey: Yeah, well I was wondering when you were gonna call.
      Sucre: Yeah, a lot has come down since we last talked, and uh...
      Petey: Yeah, I know, I heard. You ruined it!
      Sucre: Yeah... Uh... You heard already?
      Petey: Well brother, everybody's heard, man, and let me tell you something man, Hector is pissed!
      Sucre: What does Hector have to do with it?
      Petey: It was his wedding. Wait, man. What are you talking about?
      Sucre: Your bike! What are you talking about?
      Petey: The wedding!
      Sucre: What about the wedding?
      Petey: Well, you know the part where you say "I do"? Maricruz said "I don't".
      Sucre: She did?!
      Petey: Left homeboy standing at the altar holding his spam in his hands, if you know what I'm saying. What were you telling me about my bike?
      (Sucre hangs up)

    • Sucre (to Michael): It's gonna be okay, right? I mean, if you can get eight people out of prison, you can get my Puerto Rican ass out of this, right?

    • Kellerman (to Mahone): You don't ask questions about us and we make sure no one asks about you, are we clear?
      Mahone: Yeah, they all die.
