- The end of the century
is coming, y'all!

End of
the millennium.

A lot of lists
being printed about

who's the greatest person
of the past 1,000 years.

By great, they mean
who had the most impact,

Einstein, Edison, Freud.

I can tell you
one thing for sure.

[horn blares]

My name won't
be on that list.


Neither will anyone

You know,
I think I got you.

I think I got a piece
of information for you.

- Really?
- Mm-hmm.

It's about
Glynn and his daughter.

- You mean that
she was brutally raped

and is in
the hospital?

- Shit, how'd you
know that?

Well, I know one thing
I know you don't know.

- What's that?

- Who raped
Glynn's daughter.

- You're right,
I don't.

- Yeah, I do.

- How do you know
who did it?

Oh, that's because
I was just talking to him

on the phone.


- Come in.


- Father.

- What's up?

- I love to take it
in the ass.

- Uh-huh.

- I know lots of people
think that's perverse,

but it's my choice,
so I say fuck them, right?

- Richie, are we going
someplace with all this?

- I choose to
take it up the ass.

But rape, man.

- Did somebody
rape you?

- Yeah sure, but that's
not why I'm here.

I got some information
on another rape.

- Yes, I knew about
his daughter.

- And you didn't
tell me?

- Well, he asked me
not to.

- Hey, you needed
to see me?

- Yeah, Leo.

It's about Ardeth.

[tense percussive tones]

- You're gonna tell me
everything you know.

- About what?
- My daughter.

- Your daughter was
raped and beaten,

and because of that,
you took it out on me.

- Tell me
who raped her.

- I ain't telling
you dick.

You got all
the power, huh?

I mean, you think that you
could just shit on people,

shit on people and
you get away with it?

Not this time.

And you can
go fuck yourself.

- Miguel, for God's sake,

tell him what you heard
about his daughter.

- What?

That she's a lousy lay?

- Chain him up.


We're gonna need
some privacy.

- Listen,
are you sure?

This call was made
in the past week

from Em city
by Miguel Alvarez.

- Warden, you know
as well as I do

we monitor the prisoner's
calls randomly.

We didn't catch
that particular one.

- Fuck!

- Leo...

I'm sorry to hear
about your daughter.

- Does everybody know?

- Pretty much, yeah.

Look, I can
persuade Alvarez

to give up the name of
the prick who did this.

- No, thanks.

- Why not?

Hey, why not?

Why not?

- First, I don't want to
owe you any more favors.

Second, and I know
you won't understand this,

this is not right.

- Right, wrong,
right, wrong.

There's such
a fine line between them.

- Not for me.

- Bad men have
their impact too.

But you gotta be really bad,
Ivan the terrible,

Jack the Ripper,

Yeah, old Adolf
was an evil fuck,

evil is the only thing that

- Mr. Booker T. Washington
writes in his book,

"I have great faith

"in the power and
influence of fact.

"It is seldom that anything
is permanently gained

by holding back a fact."

You want some facts?

The U.S. Department
of Justice reports

that the typical prisoner
in America

is an under-educated
young male minority,

but you could
have guessed that.

[indistinct chatter]

If that under-educated
young male minority

receives his GED in prison,

he is far less likely
to come back.

read out loud?

W.E.B. Dubois,
let's have Kenny...

- If that same kid manages
to go to college

while he's inside,

he'll almost definitely
never see a prison cell again.

- Just pick any
page you want.

- Last year, one state,

spent more money
on its penal system

than it did on
higher education.

These are the facts
and figures.

You ain't got to be that
smart to add them up.

I'd fuck Dr. Nathan
in a second.

- Me too.

- How about Wittlesey?

- Shit, yeah.

- Me too.

- You know who
I think is sexy?

Sister Peter Marie.

- Yeah.

- That's disgusting;
she's a nun.

- Wasn't always a nun.

- She was married.

- What?
Nuns can't be married.

They're the
brides of Christ.

- Before she became a nun,
her husband died.

She told me once
in passing.

- I wonder how he died,
her husband?

- She didn't say.

- An accident, I heard.

Fell off the back of
a truck, broke his neck.

- That's true, but it
wasn't an accident.

Why do you think
she works here?

Her husband was
pushed off the truck.

He was murdered.

This is proof that the truth

- The annotated code.

You giving up god
for the law?

- God's laws
are clear to me.

It's those of man
that are not.

I've been studying
legal books

for the last eight months,

trying to see if god's laws
and those of the white man

have anything in common.

- What have you

- That these are nothing
but words on a page.

The annotated code exists
solely to be circumvented.

- Without law,
we have anarchy.

- You should read your
morning paper, old man.

We have
anarchy anyway.

- I would have thought
after the riot

you would have learned.

You can't overthrow

No, I intend to

that were used against me.

I intend to make

- Judge Richard Kibler
was sentenced today

to 16 months in prison.

The 12-year veteran
of the state criminal court

was convicted
of taking bribes

in exchange for leniency
in three murder cases

he presided over in 1995.

- You hear this?

Cocksucker Kibler
was the judge

at my fucking trial.

- For real?
- Shit, yeah.

If I'd have known the
motherfucker was up for bribes,

I'd have put my
two dollars down.

Shit ain't fair.

- You're right,
it's not.

You know what you
ought to do, Hill?

- What?
- Talk to Said.

- Now it says here
in this article

that Kibler took
bribes in November.

You weren't approached
by him or anyone else

about taking bribes?

- Nobody said dick to me.

- Did he talk to
your lawyer?

- If they did, he never
said word one to me.

- Good, that's good,

I think we have a case.

- A case?
- Yeah.

You were denied your right
to a fair trial

by an impartial judge.

- So you're saying that
we could go to court

and have the verdict

- My friend,

you have a real shot

at going free.

- Now let me get
this straight--

Judge Kibler did not take
a bribe in Hill's case?

- That is correct.

- Ad he didn't ask for
a bribe either?

- This is also correct.

- Then what exactly are
we talking about?

- The judge was lenient with
those who did give bribes,

so he may have been harsher
with those who did not.

Look, all we ask is
for the opportunity

to explore the merits
of the case.

- What opportunities
are we talking about?

- And for how long?

- Look, we're gonna need
more time for visitations.

I'm gonna need to
talk to the lawyer

who originally represented
Augustus and anybody

that offered bribes,
their lawyers,

the prosecution at Judge
Kibler's trial, et cetera.

- You've stayed pretty
quiet through all this.

- Kareem said he'd
be doing the talking.

I'd be an idiot not to keep
my fucking mouth shut.

You lying.
- I ain't.

- Clifford, I sat next to you
through all those hearings,

all those days
of the trial.

I got so I could tell
when you was lying.

You get that
little twitch.

- I do?

- That's probably why
you're such a shit lawyer.

- Augustus, please.

Insults do us
no good at all.

- Sure as hell make
me feel better.

- Look, I did the best
I could for you.

- Yeah, I know.

That's why I'm saying,
you shit.

- Can we get back to
the point, please?

Now you knew others
were giving bribes.

- I heard stuff in
the courthouse hallways,

that's all.

- Then why didn't you jump,
you motherfucker?

- Call me naive.

I thought I'd get
a "not guilty"

based on the strength
of the case.

- If you knew
what was going on,

why did you not go to
the state judicial commission?

- Come on, I go
to the state commission?

And nothing happens,
except the next time,

I'm pleading a case
in front of Kibler,

he cuts off my balls.

- Well?
- Marilyn Crenshaw,

the assistant district attorney
who prosecuted Kibler,

she will meet
with us tomorrow.

- Oh, cool!

- Unfortunately though,

the lawyers who gave bribes
won't take my calls.

The secretaries say,
"I'll get back to you".

I say, "You can't
get back to me."

- You know what
we should do?

We should
check and see

if any of those
three murderers

are doing their time in Oz.

- I did;
they're not.

They're in
different prisons.

- So what
do we do?

- Well, I'm gonna
write to each one,

but I don't expect
any response.

- So we're fucked?

- No, no, no.

Good things don't
come easy, my brother.

- Yeah.

[buzzer sounds]
- Count!

- Until tomorrow.

As-salaam alaikum,

- Straight line.
You know how we do this.

[tense percussive tones]

- When you were
gathering evidence

to prosecute Judge Kibler,

did you ever hear Augustus
Hill's name mentioned?

- No.

- In reference to the
three murder convictions

that Kibler was lenient with,

did you perceive any
sort of pattern?

- No.

- So nothing about these
three men was consistent?

They share the same
style of murder,

same lawyer,
same skin tone?

- Sorry, you're not
gonna be able to

turn this into
something racial.

- That is not
my intention.

- Bullshit!

The only two elements
that are similar

in these three murders
is they were men

and they were guilty.

- Oh, so you're saying
the bribes were random?

- Yes.

- And would you testify
to that in court?

- I never said that
I would testify in court,

and if you try to compel me,
I'll take you to court.

- Now why would
you do that?

You're an assistant
district attorney,

sworn to seeing
justice done.

Now doesn't your definition
of justice extend

to my client?

- Your client?

The only place that
you are a lawyer

is in your own head.

I see what you're doing,
strutting around,

thumbing your nose
at the system,

thumbing your nose at everything
that I believe in.

It's not him that
I won't help; it's you.

Look, you could
win this case.

Let me give you
some free legal advice,

get yourself a lawyer,
a real fucking lawyer.

- You know
that woman?

- Why do you ask?

- You two seemed
awful familiar.

That's not the bitch that
prosecuted you, is she?

- Marilyn and I,

before I found Allah,

we were engaged
to be married.


I need more
access to phones.

I need to be able
to get calls

as well as make them.

- Well, why don't we just run
a switchboard into your pod?

- Oh, answer a legitimate
request with sarcasm.

- Legitimate request?
- Yes.

- Said, you're an inmate
in a maximum-security prison.

Now if I say yes to you,

what's to stop next guy from
asking for the same thing?

- These are special

- No, they're not.

I hate to break
the news to you, pal,

but in here,
you're nobody special.

You deserve no more
than the next man.

- What is
this about?

Is this because you don't
like what I said

about you
in my book?

- No, this is about the fact
that you always ask for help

and you're never willing to
do anything for me in return.

- Why does there have to be
a trade, a negotiation?

I thought that doing
what's right

would be enough for you.

[tense music]

[indistinct chatter]

- No go, huh?

Oh, damn.

Yo, what was that
you were saying about

nothing good
coming easy?

[sighs] Life in prison
is some tough shit

to wrap your
mind around.

But see, I did.

Like everybody else
in this come hole,

I settled in,
I settled down.

But then when you said
the word "free" to me...


Yo, something inside of me
stirred, you know?

I want my freedom.

- And you shall have it,
my brother.

I swear to you
by almighty god,

and everything
that I hold holy,

you will go free.

- Those files are

- Yeah, well, I had this
natural curiosity

about my
fellow man.

- We got the results back
from your needle aspiration.

- Don't dance doctor,
just give it to me straight.

- Okay.

The lump under your nipple
is a stage two breast carcinoma.

- Uh-huh.

- Stage two means that we
caught it relatively early

so your chances
for survival are good.

- Uh-huh.

- The next step is surgery.

Do you have
any questions?

- You're married,

- Yeah.
- Yeah, me, too.

You'd like my wife,
she's a real pisser.

- Does the doctor know
what he's talking about?

- She.

- Give me the name of the bitch,
I'll talk to her.

- Would you just
fucking relax?

- Hey, don't get
pissy with me.

I'm the one who's
thinking about you.

- We've known each other
all the way since back

to high school.

We'd fuck for days.

And our friends,
they were amazed

'cause Shannon
never got pregnant.

So one day before

McManus: So what's next?

- I have scheduled O'Reilly
to have a mastectomy

tomorrow at

We'll need transport
and an officer, or two.

- What, you think O'Reilly
will try to escape?

- I'll be assisting
Dr. Sophie Powell.

She's the top breast cancer
surgeon in the state.

-All this sounds expensive.

cover it?

- No, and the claims
adjuster insists O'Reilly

have a lumpectomy.

- That's where they
remove the tumor

but not the breast, right?

- Right.

- Now if we can spare the breast
and save some money,

why do a mastectomy?

- Well, lumpectomies
aren't always effective.

They most often have
to be followed up

with radiation or chemo.

- So then the prison's

for this whole

And how much
is that?

- The surgeon, staff,
and equipment,

in all, $18,000.

- Wow.

- And a lumpectomy
costs what?

- About half that.

- Well, give him
the lumpectomy.

be able to choose

his own medical procedure,
don't you think?

not if he's a con.

going through enough shit

dealing with being a man
