The prison scenes in the show are shot at Joliet Prison, Joliet, Illinois, USA.
Several scenes are shot in serial killer John Wayne Gacy's old cell.
Lincoln: You’ve seen the blueprints?
Michael: Better than that. (shows his tattoos) I’ve got them on me.
Michael: (to Lincoln) I’m not here on vacation, trust me.
Lisa: I figured he (referring to LJ) could use some fatherly advice before it's...
Lincoln: Gone forever?
Lisa: I didn't mean that.
Lincoln: I know you didn't.
Abruzzi: (to Michael) Kudos, Fish. You've got spine.
Michael: (about the Warden's miniature of the Taj Mahal) The Taj... it would be a shame for the eighth wonder of the modern world to collapse because the stress isn't properly propagated.
Special Agent: You have a habit of answering a question with a question.
Bishop McMorrow: And you have a way of asking questions that beg more questions.
LJ: I don't have a father.
Lisa: It wasn't an immaculate conception, honey, trust me.
Warden Pope: Son, it’s better for me to owe you one in here than it is for you to owe me one, I can promise you that.
Michael: I'll take my chances.
Warden Pope: I can't help wondering what someone with your credentials is doing in a place like this.
Michael: Took a wrong turn a few months back, I guess.
Warden Pope: You make it sound like a traffic infraction, like all you did was turn the wrong way up a one-way street.
Michael: Everyone turns up one sooner or later.
Sucre: No good, Fish. No one gets an audience with the Pope—not unless he's real interested in what you got going on.
Sucre: Why do you want to see Burrows so bad anyways?
Michael: Because he’s my brother.
