Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves. We're flying into the eye of the hurricane.

–Ron Carver

Faith Yancy: I'm Faith Yancy.
Eunice Peterson: I *know* who you are.

Eunice Peterson: I know who you are because five weeks ago, I sent you a letter asking you to do a report on Tiana's disappearance. Never got a response.
Faith Yancy: I'm sure it was a mix-up.
Eunice Peterson: I know how it is with you people. If she's white, put her in the spotlight. If she's black, put her in the back. I'll take your interest now, any way it comes, but do not confuse my desperation with gratitude.

Connie Smith: I get mail priveleges if I agree to this new transfer?
Alexandra Eames: We expect you to be extra friendly to your new cellie.

Connie Smith: Don't tell them you gave her the X.
Ethan Garrett: I won't. But dude, you should've seen her. Her head bounced off the guardrail like a beach ball...

(on Connie and Ethan's recorded conversation)

Robert Goren: I'm going to listen to this some more.
Ron Carver: Six hours of psychopathic venting...
