Security: (referring to Lincoln) Why isn't he handcuffed to the table?
Dr. Tancredi: What's he gonna do? Steal a cotton ball?
  • Bellick: (referring to the electric chair) How's it going in here?
Geary: Ready for lift-off.
  • Dr. Tancredi: I have to go back to Fox River. I have to be there when they kill this man. And Dad, if it helps, pretend it didn't come from me.
  • Lincoln: I've never given a damn about what people thought of me. Never. Last couple of days - got to admit, you know... Lee Harvey Oswald, John Wilkes Booth... Lincoln Burrows. I'm going to go down in history with these freaks. (pauses) Bitch of it all is - I didn't do it. I DIDN'T DO IT!
