      • Sofiana: I'm taking over this ship. And if you don't do exactly as I say you can forget about ever seeing your pretty little rainbow-headed friend again.
        Goddard: Catalina.
        Sofiana: Nice name. Bad luck. I guess that's what happens when you're in the wrong place at the wrong time.
        Davenport: I knew it! I warned you about just this sort of thing! I told you it wasn't safe to-
        Sofiana: Stuff a sock in it, would you? Now as I was saying, no one will get hurt, as long as you all cooperate.
        Thelma: But if anyone tries anything, I will get it with the neural scrambler.

      • Sofiana: I'm Sofiana Mrtz. But you can call me Jack.
        Rosie: Hi, Jack!
        Sofiana: Exactly.

      • Harlan: Deactivate the collar and the cell is yours!
        Opus: Give me the cell and I'll deactivate the collar!
        Harlan: Only after you deactivate the collar!
        Opus: Not until you give me the cell!
        Harlan: Deactivate the collar and the cell is yours.
        Opus: Give me the cell!

      • Davenport: Commander, do you have a plan to get Catalina out?
        Goddard: Of course. I just haven't thought of it yet.

      • Sofiana: It was really nice of Thelma to offer to go out and pick up that document cell for me.
        Harlan: Yeah, right. You threatened to rewire her into a can opener if she didn't.
        Sofiana: Picky, picky.

      • Goddard: We're not going anywhere until you tell us what you've done with Catalina.
        Sofiana: If you don't take me to sector twenty-five, you won't care about Catalina because you'll be dead.

      • Davenport: When we're dead, don't say I didn't warn you!

      • (after putting cat in a pod) Sofiana: You can go directly to jail!

      • Sofiana: Now take me to your leader… Why aren't we going anywhere?
        Thelma: Because to take you to the command post, I would have to move, and you asked me not to.

      • Sofiana: Don't move or I'll blow your entire neural net.

      • Cat: I wonder what they did. You know, to be locked up forever.
        Bova: Probably broke the law.

      • Catalina: (looking at the cell across from her) Is there a prisoner in that cell?
        Opus: Of course not.
        Catalina: Aha! Then someone has escaped!
        Opus: No. That prisoner was taken to be mind-wiped. We erased his entire memory. We do that to prisoners who won't cooperate. Like Two-four-six-oh-one. She refuses to tell us where she's hidden a very important document cell. Mind-wipe scheduled for twelve hundred hours. Hope you'll join us.
        (He walks away. Catalina goes over to a cracked glass and looks into it.)
        Catalina: Did he say number Two-four-six-oh-one? That's me!

      • Catalina: What was that? No, no, I heard you, Suzee. I think my ears are playing tricks on me. That sounded like -- Harlan?!

      • Goddard: You've got the wrong person! Stop the mindwipe.
        (Sofiana tries to make a run for it, Radu stands in front of her)
        Radu: You're not escaping again, Sofiana.
        Opus: A mistake would mean that the person whose collar identifier will detonate at exactly twelve hundred hours is not Prisoner Two-four-six-oh-one. But if that weren't Prisoner Two-four-six-oh-one, she wouldn't be wearing the collar identifier. Therefore, there's been no mistake. And no mind wipe.
        Goddard: Good.
        Opus: ...Just a little explosion.

      • Opus: (over the intercom) Prisoner Two-four-six-oh-one, at the tone you will have exactly two minutes left to live. (a tone sounds) Thank you. Please come again.

      • Davenport: How could you do such a thing?
        Sofiana: One mind versus an entire race ... I thought it was the obvious choice.

      • Opus: (to Catalina) There are no mistakes in Prison Luff. Only prisoners. Prisoners that will never again see the light of day. Like you. Have a nice day.

      • Davenport: Just think about all of those frighteningly dangerous criminals.
        Bova: They're locked up. Usually, its the ones that are free you have to worry about.

      • Prisoner 24601:
        Prisoner 24601 is from the book/musical Les Miserables, the character's real name is Jean Valjean.
        The name "Jack" is also kind of a reference (or maybe a coincidence). They called Valjean "Jacque the Jack."
