  • The path that they are going to take to the infirmary is completed as the plan falls together. The group is still too big, therefore T-Bag is targeted by Abruzzi. Danny goes against Kellerman to spare Veronica and Lincoln's son. And a few kickers best notmoreless

    A good episode, just not the best compared to some previous ones. The plot twists are still unpredictable, although a few things introduced in this episode seem completely contrived. For instance, Abruzzi turning religious (even before he finds out that a kid was killed by mistake -- notice him staring at the stain -- which why I thought that happened) and Danny the agent becoming a good guy (although this was slightly hinted before through his reluctance to carry on a few things). Score -1 for that, otherwise the episode was pure Prison Break. The ending, once again a cliffhanger, with two new twists introduced.

    Ooh ooh, and the new kid on the block accepts an offer from Bellick to act as his rat, which should make things interesting.moreless

  • Another Great Episode!!!!!

    Prison Break is a fantastic show, you know from the beginning that one man will be out, what i didn´t expect is there was 2 men out in the end. The cliffhanger was great and the odds are interesting.

    Better than this, the writers decided to show some convicts drama, so if you didn´t care for them until now, now it´s the time. It wasn´t necessary, but since you can guess who is going to be left from the plan, all tha drama created was to make you guess during the episode who would be.

    For the second consecutive episode, the scenes with veronia and LJ were not boring. They have their drama, and it seems that one of the agents will help them.

    Let´s see what will happen, because it seems that they are not going anywhere.moreless
  • Well written.

    Friction amongst the escape team is at an all-time high when they discover they are one person too many. Michael prepares the final leg of the escape. Veronica receives help from an unlikely ally. This episode was awesome. I was so shocked when T-Bag to killl John, I scream No! I really like John I can hope that John will not die, but we will have to wait until next episode to find out. I have also started to like T-Bag, I didnt really like him at the start, but now I do. I think its because he isn't like the rest and because he is on his own and no one likes him.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Captain Bellick offers Tweener a cheeseburger it is completely wrapped. When Tweener takes the cheeseburger it is unwrapped, ready to eat.

  • QUOTES (24)

    • Sucre: Who's here to see me?
      C.O. Patterson: Hell if I know. Some lady.

    • Interviewer: Tell me why you chose to pursue a career in engineering.
      Michael: Well, um, I have always been interested in, ah, structure. Geometry. How things fit together. How an object that performs a function can also be a work of art.

    • Veronica: Hello?
      Hale: Veronica Donovan?
      Veronica: Who is this?
      Hale: It, it doesn`t matter who I am. Don`t hang up. I have information that you may be interested in. Information that will lead to the exoneration of Lincoln Burrows.

    • L.J.: (crying on Veronica's shoulder after his mother's funeral) She didn't do anything. She didn't deserve this.

    • C-Note: How much does he tell you, anyways? Or does he keep it all to himself? Yeah, he probably tells you, the less you know, the better, right?

    • Sucre: (to Maricruz) Oh, my God, baby, you got to stop listening to these people. They are poisoning your brain. Your hormone things, they're out of whack. You're not thinking straight. This is our child we're talking about.

    • Hale: We got to go.
      Allison Hale: You're in trouble, aren't you?

    • Reverend Mailor: John, it is never too late. If you agree to accept Christ into your heart and turn from your sin, he will forgive you; and save you in eternity.

    • Lincoln: (about T-Bag) Son of a bitch has got a countermove for everything.
      Abruzzi: Not for this.

    • Bellick: What do you say, kiddo? You want a cheeseburger, or do you want to go to the SHU?
      (Tweener grabs the hamburger and takes a bite)
      Bellick: That's my boy.

    • Kellerman: (over the phone) You remember, be patient. Follow his lead. We want the trifecta today.
      Hale: Yeah, I'm on it.

    • T-Bag: After all I've done, maybe I do deserve to die. Maybe I do, but you are no better than me.
      Abruzzi: But I can be, if I want! God has given me the chance to choose. Maybe I should give you a chance as well.

    • Michael (to Sucre): Why would you want to be responsible for potentially dangerous information? The less you know, the better. It's for your own good.

    • Sucre: I'm not going to dig if I'm not going to go.

    • T-Bag: Things are getting pretty tense, like they're fixing to collide.

    • Sara: You don't have to explain it to me, Michael.
      Michael: I know. (pause) But I want to.

    • Michael: I found our access to the infirmary building, but I'm gonna need some time to make it work.
      Lincoln: How much time?
      Michael: Enough for me to find my way up a twenty foot vertical drainpipe without using a ladder.

    • C-Note (to Sucre): Scofield is only here for one reason: his brother. And he only needs 2 things – the old man's money and the mob boss's plane. He don't need you. You just happened to be in the same cell when he got here. You and the toilet.

    • C-Note: Apparently, college boy here did the math. Figured out that we got too many clowns in the car. So one of us is in here diggin' but his seat ain't guaranteed.

    • Bellick: Excuse me, doctor. I was just asking Mr. Scofield about the contraband he had his stripper wife truck in the other day. (sarcastically) Look, you go ahead. Your job's more important.

    • T-Bag: Hey John, you know actually, about Jesus (slits John's throat) say hi to him for me, will ya?

    • T-Bag: (to Westmoreland) You know what I can't understand is why somebody like you wants to get out of here anyways. How you gonna survive, huh? The world is all different now, scary. They got computer phones, boobies made out of silicone, you wouldn't know what to do!

    • Bellick: Maybe "whore" is too strong. What do you call a girl who married a felon to get into the United States? What'd she have to come here for anyway? No strip clubs in Whatzit-stan?

    • T-Bag: What's that smell? It smells a little like... conspiracy.

  • NOTES (2)
