  • Trivia

    • Cooper Green's phone number is (312) 555-0124.

    • From this episode on, Marshall Allman is credited as "Special Guest Star." Peter Stormare, a former regular cast member returning as a guest, did not receive that credit.

    • Michael, Lincoln and Sara's hotel room number is 1006.

    • Mahone hands Bellick a paper that says "Reporte de Policia Federal", which is Spanish for "Federal Police Report".

    • Kristine said that Kellerman moved out of their home when he was 18. In "Bad Blood", he said they haven't spoke in 15 years. According to this, Kellerman can't be less than 33 years old.

    • Though this episode takes place in June, fake Cooper Green's breath can be seen in a few shots.

    • T-Bag's money inside his knapsack should have been easily discovered at the airport because it should have gone through the x-ray machine. As a SOP in the airport, all luggage carry-on or otherwise should go through X-ray. Had they discovered the money, It should have raised a red flag and T-Bag couldn't have gotten inside the plane that easily.

    • You can actually visit Scroll down and find a topic headed Attn:Fish and you will see the same conversation as in the episode.

    • Although the brothers and Sara finally get their hands on the evidence needed to uncover the conspiracy, we don't get to hear the tape.

    • There is a mark of contusion on the face of Kim caused by Lincoln. When he called Mahone, on the first shot, there was no mark, yet on the second one, there was the mark.

    • When Michael is kicking the fake Cooper Green, you can clearly see someone running behind Michael. When freezing that shot, it appears to be Lincoln. Than there's a shot of the fake Cooper Green on the ground, followed by a shot of Michael's face, after that shot Lincoln comes running out the building, again.

  • Quotes

    • Sucre: Look, mami, look! I told you. Llamas!
      Maricruz: I think those are alpacas.
      Sucre: That's what I said, a pack-a llamas.

    • Kellerman: I am going to do something, I have to do something, that a lot of people are going to think is horrible.
      Kristine: Paul...
      Kellerman: And you just remember the brother you grew up with. You just remember him. You're my sister, Kristine. I love you.

    • Sara (standing at her father's grave): You look good, Bruce. You've done well for yourself at my father's expense.

    • C-Note: Fish (Michael) is not going to peek his little white ass out from any rock that he's hiding unless he sees...
      Mahone: A familiar face? And that's your face, right?

    • Mahone: (to Bellick) You're supposed to be under the radar. Are you under the radar, Brad? This is an office full of federal agents who now have all seen your face.

    • C-Note: (to Mahone) I'm going to hold up my end of the bargain. And guess what? You hold up yours. Get off my back!

    • Mahone: (to C-Note) I'm the one who got Kacie released. I'm the one who gets Dede medical care. I'm the one that allows you to visit them and I'm the one that can take it away.

    • L.J.: (to Lincoln) I guess I'm just saying that for now, for a while, I just want to stay in one place and have something normal.

    • Kellerman: I'm not the brother you remember. I've changed, in a really bad way.

    • C-Note: You and I know how smart this kid (Michael) is, right?
      Mahone: Clearly smarter than you, considering you're the one wearing bright orange.

    • Michael: So we blackmail her.
      Cooper Green: I'm an officer of the court. I... I didn't say that.

    • Cooper Green: Actually I said it couldn't help exonerate you in a court of law. Maybe it can help you outside the law.

    • Mahone: (to Bellick) Ever been to Mexico?

    • (upon hearing Agent Kim's orders)
      Agent Mahone: I just want you to know (long pause) that uh.. I'm going to keep my promise to you and I'm going to help your family. But I am going to need your help too (pause) and this is something that you're not going to want to do and I don't want you to do this, but I need you to do this and if you don't I will have Kaycee arrested again, and I will have Dede's medical care stopped and I will hate myself and it will make me sick, but I swear to God.. I will ruin their lives. Don't make me.
      C-Note: Man, what the hell are you saying to me?
      Agent Mahone (takes a breath): Later today you'll get a package in your cell that's gonna be from me. I need you to use it. Okay?
      C-Note: Okay. What's in it?
      (Mahone stands up and looks him in the eye but doesn't answer his question. He then starts to walk away)
      C-Note: Yo. Yo! What the hell is in it, man?
      Agent Mahone (turns around just before he leaves the room): Just use it or you'll wish you had.
      C-Note: Yo, what's in the package? Yo, what the hell is in the package man?
      (as Mahone is exiting through the door, C-Note shouts) YO, WHAT THE HELL IS IN THE PACKAGE MAN!? (the door closes)

    • (phone call)
      Agent Mahone: Yeah?
      Agent Kim: Get to Ebert Park, I have men on Scofield and Burrows.
      Agent Mahone: Ebert Park?
      Agent Kim: Scofield set a meet with a target we're surveilling.
      Agent Mahone: What the hell is Scofield doing in Chicago?
      Agent Kim: You're asking why the deer walked into your crosshairs? Just take the shot Mahone.
      Mahone: I'm on it, I'm on it.
      Agent Kim: ...and Alex. (pause) Franklin.
      Mahone: I'm using Franklin to help me find Scofield... (cut off by Agent Kim)
      Agent Kim: Yeah. We don't need him for that anymore. What I do need... is a death without questions. (hangs up)

    • (on a rooftop overlooking where the President is scheduled to make an appearance, an agent hears Kellerman's approach and draws his weapon)
      Kellerman: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. (flashes his badge) We've got a "Boom-Charlie" a half-block South. Team leader wants you there right now.
      Agent (lowering his weapon): What's the E.M.O.?
      Kellerman: He's got an I.N.D. strapped to him... (as he's talking he quickly draws his silenced pistol and shoots the agent in the chest)

    • Lincoln: The woman that set me going to set me free.
      Michael: I think she'll sign it with her own hand.

    • Kristine: So... You wanna know how Mom is?
      Kellerman: Just cause someone spits you out of their crotch, doesn't make them your mother... that woman is insane... do you remember? Have you suppressed it all?

    • Kristine: I hoped maybe I would see you at Dad's funeral.
      Kellerman: That man died long before his heart stopped, that funeral was a formality.
      Kristine: That's really not fair.
      Kellerman: It's true.

    • Mahone: (telephone conversation to Kim) Brought me in too late, they're gone.
      Kim: Then find them.
      Mahone: Let me get this straight. The brothers come back to a city that's 15 miles from the prison they escaped from. Why would they do that?
      Kim: Maybe it's because the President's in Chicago to make a speech and they're up to something. Which is why we need to find them.
      Mahone: (laughs gently) And, of all people, they wanna meet with somebody from the Attorney Generals' office.
      Kim: Your point?
      Mahone: Burrows is innocent?
      Kim: Wow, you're good Alex. As advertised. No one's truly innocent, you of all people should know that.

    • Mahone: (to C-Note) You're a good man, a good father.

    • Gun dealer (on the rifle he has just sold to Kellerman): Serial numbers have been cleaned. Chamber's been scraped to throw off ballistics just in case you're not, you know, shooting at tin cans.
      Kellerman (looks up at him): No, I'm hunting bigger game than that. (Kellerman then pulls out his silenced pistol)
      Gun dealer: Hey, hey.
      (Kellerman quickly shoots him in the chest, then again when he is down on the ground)

    • Bellick: I came for my damn money. See, how a reward works, someone gets rewarded the money. Mahone: Patoshik died, you stupid son of a bitch. There's paperwork involved. Of course you're going to get the money, but you're going to have to be patient. And if you ever come into my office again, you'll not only never see the cash, you'll never see another sunrise.

    • Michael: We have something...
      Cooper Green: The tape.
      Michael: You've heard of it?
      Cooper Green: Well, I know a lot of people have been looking for it.

    • LJ: I love you, dad.
      Lincoln: I love you too, son.

    • LJ: Dad.
      Lincoln: Yeah.
      LJ: I want you to end this, more than anything.

    • LJ: I didn't know you had Jane's number.
      Lincoln: Yeah well, we exchanged numbers when you guys split.
      LJ: You never called.
      Lincoln: No, yeah, sorry; it's been dangerous, you know, real dangerous.
      LJ: It's okay.
