Episode Quotes
T-Bag: Yeah, Hold up here a minute, oh, hold up here huh... Since to be a little confusion... I'm suppose to be on this brigade...
Abruzzi: (To The C.O) I don't think so.
T-Bag: Huh, John, you can't be serious, not after all long and illustrate histories we shared together. All those nights in New York City, in California, in St. Louis. They were good times, weren't they John?.. Tell the patch here about it... but if you want to... I certainly could.

T-Bag: I'm feelin' kinda left out. New York, California, St. Louis. What are we discussing?
Scofield: Talkin' baseball actually.
T-Bag: Huh. Now that's a subject I just happen to know quite a bit about.
Abruzzi: What a shame. The conversation's over.

Bellick: If you don't tell me who killed Bob before I leave this cell, our friendship goes with it. [Bellick rises] That's a nice cat.

Sue Parsons: I have a source that tells me, if you accept what happened and stop fighting your execution, your son will be left out of this. If not, I hope you said goodbye to him when he left here this morning.
Lincoln: Who are you?
Sue Parsons: One Burrows is going to die. Up to you which one.

Westmoreland: Maybe I did hurt my knee. I did steal that car, and I did accidentally hit that poor lady. But how could I have hijacked a plane in Portland on November 24 when I was in Folsom finishing up a 30-day drunk and disorderly?

Guard: What the hell are you doin' here?
Michael: Clean up detail - we thought this was storage.
Guard: This look like storage to you, you idiot? It's a restricted area. It's the CO break room. Now back it up!

Nick: If I didn't know any better, I'd say Lucas is sweet on you.

T-Bag: I'm comin' along on this endeavor whether you like it or not. I've got a hell of a singin' voice otherwise.

Michael: Think of this place like it is a map of the U.S. Our cell over there, that's New York City. The infirmary, our exit, is California. The pipes beneath our feet that connect the two...
Sucre: Route 66.
Michael: Route 66. Our ticket out of here.



Episode Goofs
Route 66 starts in Chicago, not New York.

Michael mentions that Westmoreland would have only received 20 years to life if he hadn't killed that girl. But because he was convicted on felony murder, his sentence was cubed to 60 to life. 20 cubed is 8,000 years. To serve 60 years, it would have to be tripled, not cubed.

Previously in episode 5 when the surveilance video was stolen, Veronica tells Nick that nobody has an extra key to her apartment. However, in this episode, we see that the guard has keys to the apartment. Surely Veronica would have at least asked him about anybody coming by.
