T-bag: You'll have to forgive my boy. He has the, uh, propensity to be a bit gregarious when he shouldn't be. Fraternizing in the prison shower. Come on.
Michael: Maybe you ought tocut the kid a break.
T-bag: You wouldn't be meddling in my affairs now, would you, Scofield? You can't be that stupid. Not when I'm so fully invested in your affairs.
Michael: What's between you and him... is between you and him.
T-bag: That's what I thought you said.
Cherry: You've got to help me.
Sucre: Looks like I got to find something else to call you now.
Michael: Why is that?
Sucre: Cause you ain't a fish no more. You ain't the newest con in the tank. No...
Michael: I could've done something.
Lincoln: No. T-Bag had hishooksin that kid. There was nothing you could've done.
Michael: I could've told the pope. He could've transferred the kid to AdSeg. He would've been safe.
Lincoln: Go easy, Michael. You didn't even know him.

Lincoln: And you did.
Michael: But at what price?

Abruzzi: Hey, jelly wad... run to the commissary, get me a bag of chips, we'll pretend this never happened, right?
Gus: Yeah, I'm telling you, John. The sooner you face these facts, the better off we will all be.
Abruzzi: I could kill youin a heartbeat.
Gus: Somehow I doubt that. The sooner you face facts, the better off we will all be. You'reyesterday's news, John.
