  • Trivia

    • In the previous episode Michael states that there are no cameras in the room with Scylla however in this one Michael says that there is one, and that it comes on when one of the sensors is activated but that only the General can see the camera.

    • It's revealed that the General is 63.

    • The time when Sucre fell along with the nitrogen tank there was clearly a loud clunk. 10 decibels is around the sound of rustling leaves, so clearly that clunk should have set off the alarm.

    • Sara states that if the sensor picks up an increase in heat source, the system will go into standby and after five seconds if the heat source is not gone, the alarm will go off. However, when Michael is walking across the makeshift bridge and the sensor goes off, it takes him longer than five seconds to reach the tank of liquid nitrogen and release the liquid.

    • When Sucre is about to attach the cable to the second section of the bridge, the tank of liquid nitrogen's position changes between shots.

  • Quotes

    • Sara: It's time to go.
      Michael: "All that avails is flight." Maybe my father was onto something. If they all die because we tried to take down the Company, and I survive because I called in sick how am I gonna live with myself?

    • Gretchen: When Scofield and Burrows walk in that door, give them an opportunity to surrender. Best case scenario: we avoid a confrontation.
      T-Bag: Ain't no way they're going to hand it over without a fight.
      Gretchen: If they take that position, (cocks a gun) we respond in kind.

    • (Michael overhears Sucre whispering a prayer)
      Michael: This is going to go exactly as planned, I promise.
      Sucre: I'm not praying for me.

    • Self: When your father approached me about doing this, I felt like I was chasing a ghost or something. But, because of the work you guys have done, today's the day: we're going to take these bastards down.

    • General: (to Gretchen) If I ever see you again, I'll shoot you on sight.

    • Lisa: (to the General) It may be hard for you to believe, but I do have this under control.

    • Michael: This is it. Before we go in, does anyone have any questions about what we're supposed to do?

    • Mahone: We're not going to let you down, Michael.

    • Sara: (to Michael) As soon as this is over, I'm taking you to the hospital.

    • Michael: From this point on, we need absolute silence.

    • Sucre: Do we even have a chance?

    • (General prepares to leave for a "meeting")
      Lisa: Just tell me it's not Gretchen.

    • Sara: He's going to be okay. I'm scared too, but the hospital is the best place for him right now.

    • Sucre: I just can't believe it's all coming to an end and he's (Michael) not here.

    • Michael: We need to finish what we started.

    • General: Now, more than ever, we need the support of law enforcement.

    • Sara: (injects Michael) If I still had a medical license, I'd lose it over this.

    • Gretchen: (to Feng) To ensure the item's safe recovery, we need your help.
