- A wise man once said,

"Life is an adventure
in forgiveness."

Now, you might rank bungee jumps
off a bridge in New Zealand

or bachelor parties in Vegas
a few notches higher

on the adventure ladder,

but think about
the risks involved.



You could climb
to the mountaintop of attrition

only to get shot down by
a victim who refuses to forgive.

Think about the rewards.

A chance to heal
those nasty wounds,

reconcile with someone you love.

Huh.
Now, that I think about it,

forgiveness might knock
bungee jumps

and bachelor parties
off the charts.

- It's okay.
Take a break.

Cutler's a suicide, huh?

- That's what Reimondo's saying,
and I ain't disagreeing.

- I didn't imagine you would.
- So, now what, Vern?



Is there someone else
who needs to commit suicide

before I get some respect?

- Jesus Christ, Robson,
you made your point, all right?

Shut the fuck up and spot me.

- Miguel, sit down.

- What'd I do?

- Well, that's what
I'm wondering.

Tell me about your relationship
with Wolfgang Cutler.

- Cutler?
Nazi guy?

We didn't have a relationship.

Dome-head was
an equal-opportunity racist.

- So, it would surprise you

if he left you something
in his will?

- He left me something?
Like what?

- Like everything he owned.

- What?

- You are the sole beneficiary
of all his worldly goods,

both in Oz and on the outside.

His house, his car,

hell,
his 1942 Indian motorcycle.

- Get the fuck out of here.

- The will is signed
and notarized.

- Are you shittin' me?

I barely even spoke
to the fucking guy,

a couple of times at rehearsal.

That's it.

The guy had any wife, kids,
family, anything?

- Wife, no kids.

- Ahh.
This is fucking crazy.

- So, we packed up his cell,
put all his belongings in a box.

You're gonna have to decide
what you want to keep.

- I'm not gonna look through
a dead guy's things.

Jesus.

♪ ♪

- I guess we'll have to wait
till the afterlife

to find out why Cutler
would up and give

his belongings
to a fucking wetback.

- Yo, I'm as bugged out as you.

I mean, I know you guys
spent a lot of time with Cutler.

Did he ever mention anything
about me?

- Uh, yeah,
in his sleep at night.

He'd whisper your name.
Fuck off.

- I'll suggest this now,
Alvarez, or I'll find a way

to make it happen later,

you sign all his stuff over
to his wife.

- I already thought about that.

- Don't think, spic.
Do.

maybe I should give

all his assets to you, Roby,

being that you already
gave him your ass.

When Augustus Hill died,

we thought we lost him forever,
but we didn't.

He wrote a book

about his life here,

about your lives,

and Kareem Said's last great act

was to get
Augustus' book published.

Now, when Kareem died,
the book could've died with him,

but it didn't

because of the hard work
and the dedication of these men.

I want you all to share
in their triumph.

One of the guys are having
problems with something

I couldn't help him with.

You might want to go take

from the outside

- And pay them with what?

You see that figure on
the bottom right, right there?

That's our gross so far,
1/5 of what it should be.

With all due respect
to Kareem Said,

taking on Hill's book pro bono
wasn't a sound business plan.

- Us paying minimum wage
is the problem.

A small cut, which would
still be far above

what prisoners usually make,

What are we doing to do?
I mean, you know.

We gotta whack his white ass.

no harm would come to Idzik,

and no Muslim
would seek revenge.

- Like I said, no balls.

- Listen to me.

I saw Kareem Said get shot.

I held him in my arms
as he died.

The last words he said were,
"Don't harm him."

Now, as hard as it is
not to do something,

I will respect and obey
the Minister's wishes,

- I am a Jew.

- A Jew.

Well, I've always said there's
some good use for you people.

So explain.

Why the fuck
did you kill him?

Some Israeli-Palestine thing?

- Water.

Cold water.

- Huh?

- You put cold water in a...

let's say a teapot,

turn the stove on,

the water gets hot, right?

At some point it gets as hot
as it will ever be, blistering.

Meanwhile, the stove is off,
the water starts to cool,

but what will you say

when you stand over his dead
body with a shank in your hand?

Not gonna happen.

- Fuck!

- So, if forgiveness
is so good for us,

why don't we do it more?

- Same reason I don't eat tofu.

It tastes like shit.

- There are two reasons
we hold back.

First, accountability.

As long as we're still in pain,
we need someone to blame.

What can you do
with all that pain

if you've let the bastard
off the hook?

Second, identity.

Without this rage
consuming me,

without this resentment,
this bitterness,

who am I?

- And finally, the Correctional
Officers Association

is holding their annual
awards dinner and banquet

here later this month.

- How come we always have
to host these fuckin' things?

is why you probably

won't be taking home a trophy
again this year.

[laughter]

Don't forget,
it's black tie and evening gown.

Okay, let's make
a good showing.

All right, that's all for today.

- An evening gown.

- I can't wear
an evening gown.

- I don't even own one.

- Warden, can I have a minute?

- Sure.

- I've been a CO a lot of years,

and in that time I've done
some things I regret.

- We all have, Sean.

Occupational hazard.

- Yeah, well, what I mean is
that we spend a lot of time

trying to get the prisoners
to rat each other out,

yet when it comes to us,
there's this...

code of silence.

- Which you're about to break.

- Yeah.

- I don't envy you right now.

Who?

- Dave Brass.

- He killed Carlos Martinez?

- No, no, no, but Dave lied
about talking to Martinez

the night he died.

There was no
death bed confession.

Martinez never
implicated Morales

in the cutting
of Dave's tendons.

- So, that's the real reason
you asked me to move

Morales to the hospital.

- I still think the dink
is guilty.

- But there's no proof.

We dumped him
in solitary unjustly.

- Worse.

Dave, Claire Howell,
and myself, we...

we're the ones
who cut up Morales' ankles.

- [screaming]

- I suspected that Brass
was involved

and that Howell allowed it
to happen.

But you, Sean...

- Dave was my pal, you know?

Morales fucked up his life
forever.

- Okay.

Thank you.

- That's it, thanks?

- I'll discipline
the three of you,

but how exactly
I don't know yet.

- Right.

- Sean?
- Yeah?

- It takes balls,
what you just did.

- Well, I didn't become
a zoo keeper

just to behave
like one of the animals.

- Put it into your mouth.

- Morales.

I'm releasing you from solitary,
permanently,

putting you back
in Emerald City.

- Why?

- I don't need to give a reason,
do I?

That might make me think twice.

- All right, forget the why.

Hey, Warden,

what do you know
about Nurse Grace?

- Know about her?

Nothing,

except she's worked here
for years.

- If I were you,
I'd check her background.

- What, she's medically
incompetent?

- I'm afraid.

- [laughs]
Afraid?

You?

Of her?

- Must be the medication

- Didn't I give you

- Too late to save my grandson.

- You blame me,
but you shouldn't.

- Who then?
- Morales.

He had Martinez cut me,
which screwed with my head,

which made me take off
with your winnings.

He's the bastard
you should hate.

- There's room in my heart
for both of you.

- Yeah?

Well, Morales is on his way
back to Em City,

and I got fined
and suspended,

a solid month, no pay,
no benefits.

You think I can afford that?

- I was going to give him
some Emetrol

and send him back
to death row.

- Well, he spent enough time
up there.

He could use
a change of scenery.

- All right, but I'm putting him
in restraints.

- Hey, Gloria.

Hey, thanks a lot for letting
my brother, you know,

chill out in the hospital ward.

It means a lot to me.

- Well, that's okay.

- Yeah.

Hey, we just heard that, yeah,

his latest appeal has
been denied and the lawyer's

gonna plead his case
to the state supreme court,

but, you know, unless
a fuckin' miracle happens,

I think Cyril's going
to be executed next week.

- I have to go.

- Hey, Gloria,

I never stopped loving you,

not for a second.

- Excuse me.

Excuse me.

Excuse me.

- Don't you fuckin' ignore me.

You think because I'm slow that
I don't know what's going on.

- I have to go to the bathroom.

- Listen to me,
you fuckin' asshole,

I'm gonna shit in my pants.

- Help me.

- Too late.

Hey, you gonna leave me
lying here in my own shit?

both: Hey!

- What's the matter?

- I had an accident.

- Not again.

Machelo?

Can you give me a hand
over here, please?

[laughter]

- Okay, I'm here.
What's the reason?

- Mr. Neema, your reputation
on the street is,

well, it's massive.

Back in the day
with the Black Panther thing,

and since then with
the community development and--

- I know my own resume.
Get to the point.

- Well, you see, sir, we've
been a little leaderless lately.

Burr Redding's off on some
telemarketing ego trip.

- Yeah, and you want me
to take over.

- Shit, yeah.

- You fellas know
why I'm in Oz?

- For kidnapping or some such.

- I picked up my daughter
from day care.

My ex-wife was intending
to leave this country,

thereby depriving me
of my rights to see my child,

and I love my children,
gentlemen,

every single one,
and I got 16.

- Maybe it's your turn
to get to the point.

- None of my children do drugs,
sell drugs, or hang in gangs.

Each lives a life
of their own choosing,

contributing as best they can
to make a better world.

My children are my pride

because they make me proud.

So, rather than use
this classroom

as a place to plot your plans,

use it for a real purpose,

to learn.

End of sermon.

End of discussion.

[bell ringing]

- Thanks.

Hey, stranger, haven't seen
much of you lately.

- Yeah, well, you know,
you've been busy.

With the play,
your boyfriend.

- Boyfriend?
- Jahfree Neema.

I see you here,
I see you there,

laughing, whispering.

It's very sweet, very intimate.

- Ryan, come on.
- What?

You gonna tell me
I'm imagining it,

that my eyes deceive me?
- No.

- You asked me
to be nice to the guy.

I tried, he blew me off.

You know, I know you think
he's some sort of hotshot savior

and all, but to me he's just
another fuckin' wanker.

You two enjoy yourselves.

Meanwhile, my little brother's
gonna die.

- Ryan.
- What?

- Promise me you won't
do anything to harm Jahfree.

- Oh, gee, Ma,

you really think I'm capable
of something like that?

[overlapping chatter]

- Neema, I know we haven't had

much of a chance to talk
since you arrived here--

- That's probably because
we have

nothing to say to each other.

- Well, look, I know
on the outside you and me,

we was never that friendly,
but--

- Friendly?

Redding, you are anathema to me.

- See, there you go using
them big words,

think you're going to curl me,
but it don't.

- For the past
30-something years,

you've been supplying
the children of our community

with lethal drugs
while I have fought

to keep those
same children safe.

And now, just because
we both find ourselves

in this clap shack, you want
to believe that we have a bond.

We don't.
- We do!

I've seen the error of my ways,
and I'm trying to correct them.

- I don't believe you.

- You know, Burr,
that Neema,

he's a pompous
piece of shit, man.

I say it's time he learned
who's the boss around here.

- You want him dead, O'Reily?

- I wouldn't weep if he was.

- If you really want
to do Neema some harm,

tie him to your mother's crime.

- What do you mean?

- You're a clever boy.

You figure that one out.

- Who's the hardest person
of all to forgive?

Oneself.

The demons inside,
they laugh at the thought.

- When you forgive
some other guy,

he's not likely to turn you
down, say, "Fuck that."

- Tryin' to forgive yourself,
though,

it's "Fuck that" all the time.

- Ten years go by, you still
can't let yourself off the hook.

- 15 years, 20, 40.

You gonna take that grudge
against yourself to the grave?

- You gonna carry it for
eternity?

- Well, well, well.
Agent Taylor.

Are you here to visit me?

- Fuck you, Keller.

- Aww, G-man,
don't get grumpy.

You're the one who made
the deal with Heekin.

You're the one
who got him to fib.

- He saw you dump the body.

- Hey, wasn't it
J. Edgar Hoover who said,

"Cheaters never prosper"?

- Careful there, sir.

- You killed two other men,
Keller,

and I'm gonna get you
for one of them.

[gate buzzing]

- Henry Stanton?
I'm Tobias Beecher.

Sister Peter Marie
suggested I come see you.

- You're the one doing
pro bono work, right?

- Yeah, that's right.

- Helping the prisoners
with legal shit and such.

Well, I hurt my back
doing sanitation duty

a few months ago.

Dr. Nathan told me not to do
anything too strenuous.

I told my COs and they put me
right back to work again

because they think I'm faking,
but I'm not.

In fact,
they give me harder work.

I complain to my unit manager,
nothing changes.

And the other day
I screwed up my back again.

- Uh...
Well, off the top of my head,

it appears the COs
violated your rights

under the eighth amendment,
deliberate indifference.

Let me talk to Dr. Nathan,
the officers involved,

and Warden Glynn,
let me see what I can do.

Meanwhile, take it easy.

Back injuries suck.

- Thanks a lot, man.

- Stanton is not lying, Leo.

I gave him the proper
medical documentation

at least three times.

- Okay, the COs screwed up.

They will be reprimanded.

- That's not good enough.

I've got a rock-solid case here,
Warden.

If we go to court, I'll win.

- What do you want?

- Full physical rehab for
Stanton at the prison's expense

and a guarantee that he'll
be assigned light duty tasks.

- Okay.

- And I want those
two Cos fired.

- Beecher--
- Gone, today.

- The union will fight this.

- So, let the union
take the heat.

- All right, they're fired,
I'm busy.

- You're good at this, Tobias.

- You ain't seen nothing yet.

- So, how are you adjusting
to life after death row?

- I'm bored.

Bored of the everyday,

bored with shaving,
brushing my teeth,

taking a shit,
wiping my ass.

- You know what?

I don't think you're bored.

I think you miss Tobias.

- Well, he's turned
into a real firebrand.

No sooner does he get
my sentence overturned

that he's out taking on the case
of some other jamoke.

- He's found a lot of joy
in helping others.

You might want to try
the same thing.

- And how would I do that,
Sister?

I'm not a lawyer.

- Well, who besides Beecher
do you care about?

- My ex-wives, I guess.

- Start there.

- You know something, Sister,
you just gave me a great idea.

Thanks.

Socks.

- Yeah, I know how you are.

You wear them until
they fall off your feet.

[laughs]
Exactly.

- So, what's the latest
from the outside world?

- Kids are great.

Harry...
actually hugged me yesterday.

- Sweet.

I'd like to meet your kids.

- Yeah, right.

- I'm serious.

- Yeah, okay.
Yeah, definitely.

You know, you know,
just not right away, though.

- Been drinking?

- Not a drop.

Went to a cocktail party
the other night

and passed with flying colors.

- Good boy.

And Holly's teacher,
how's she?

- Why do you ask that?

- I don't know, you're the one

who's mentioned her
a couple times.

- You know, actually,
to be honest, Chris--

- Yes, let's be honest.

- Marian and I
have been dating.

- You fuck her yet?

- Chris.

- Be honest.

- Yes.

- Good for you,
you sexy motherfucker.

- You're pissed.

- I'm not.

- Be honest.

- You want a slice of truth?

[dramatic music]

I killed Franklin Winthrop.

- What?

- No...

[grunts]

- Bitch kills your dad,
bitch gotta die.

- Are you trying to get sent
back to death row?

- I covered my tracks.

- Shit.

- Toby, look,
I'm telling you this--

I'm telling you this...

- [muttering]

- I'm not bragging.
I'm not trying to upset you.

I'm telling you this 'cause
I need you to do me a favor.

My ex-wife, Bonnie.

She's been diagnosed
with ovarian cancer.

She's dying, Toby,

and the only hope
that she's got is this drug,

it's called oxaliplatin.

And the problem is that
it's illegal in this country,

so, I contacted this guy who,
you know, he just,

he peddles in these kind
of illegal drugs.

All I need you to do
is just meet him,

take the oxaliplatin to Bonnie.

- I can't.

- Why the fuck not?

- I'd be violating my parole.

- Bullshit, I'm asking you to
take a small package

in your pocket
from point A to point B.

- I can't.

- Bonnie is dying.

- Chris...
- I love you.

- Don't...
- I know that you love me.

I'm begging you, please.

Toby, I'm begging you.

- All right.

Give me the address.

[bell ringing]

I gotta go.

- Toby, you'll see,
this is all for the best.

It's all for the best, Toby.

Yeah, is Detective Weber there?

I got a tip for him,

the sale
of illegal pharmaceuticals.

- A man stands in the cemetery
reading a letter he wrote

finally forgiving
his long-dead father.

The mother of a girl
killed by a drunk driver

is wracked with fantasies
of retaliation.

Your boyfriend begs you
for one more chance,

you say to a mirror
you're done hating yourself.

But you know you're not.

Maybe instead
of forgive and forget

it should be
forgive and remember.

Remember that you might
wake up tomorrow

and have to forgive
all over again,

and again and again,

the way the heart keeps beating
like a drum.

Forgive.

I can't.

You can.

Forgive. Forgive.

I can't.

You can.

Forgive.

- Same old story.

I got fucked in the ass.
