Prison Break (2005–2017): Season 1, Episode 19 - The Key - full transcript

After the crash Kellerman tries to suffocate Lincoln, but he is saved in the last moment by a stranger. Sucre leaves solitary confinement and Michael tells to his partners that he has completed the map, but he needs the key to the infirmary. Abruzzi is back to Fox River, apparently converted into a religious man. Warden Pope sends Captain Bellick to find Lincoln before notifying the authorities. Nick tries to convince Veronica that they are losing time checking the calls of Quinn's cell phone. Michael kisses Sara and asks her to wait for him. Tweener is in trouble with Avocado and he castrates the abuser. Lincoln sees that the stranger is actually his father, and he explains that he worked for the powerful Company and Lincoln is a victim of a big plot against him. He had leaked information of EcoField and they used Lincoln to force him to show up. Michaels asks for help from Nika. Veronica finds many calls from Montana on Quinn's phone. The Vice-President tells her brother that he is alive just because of her, and he replies that he does not understand how they have not killed her yet. Abruzzi meets T-Bag and asks him to forget everything, and they make a truce. Nika seeks out Sara and tells her about her life and how Michael helped her, but she actually steals Sara's key. A guy sees the Mustang in a junkyard where Aldo and Lincoln are hidden, but Kellerman bugs the conversation and goes to the spot. However, the police arrive and Captain Bellick arrests Lincoln, saving him from Kellerman. Sara seeks her key and recalls her meeting with Nika Volek; she calls maintenance service to replace the lock. Nick works for Abruzzi. Michael invites David and he betrays the plan to Captain Bellick. Lincoln is back to Fox River under 24 hours surveillance.

SCOFIELD: Previously
on Prison Break:

Hey, John, you know,
actually about Jesus,


say hi to him for me, will you?

It's him.

Did you see him? Who?

The guy in the viewing room. No.

It was Dad.

Where's your girl? She'll be
at my place in about an hour.

Pretty soon, we're
gonna call in our favor.

Have at it.


POPE: The Department of
Corrections is allowing you

a one-hour visit with your son.

I'll make the travel arrangements,
but I don't want any problems.





I used to have a, uh,
Great Dane, big and loyal.

But when she was 12, she got, uh,
cancer, so we had to put her down.

And you'd think it would be
this big, dramatic event, but,

(GROANING) it was very peaceful.


One minute she was
breathing, the next she wasn't.

MAN: Hey! Everything
okay? Need me to call 911?

No, no, I got it.

That engine's
smoking pretty bad,

looks like it could
go up any second.

We'll be okay, actually.

You think? Yeah.

All right, if you say so.

Fine. I think it's
going to be fine.


MAN (ON PA): Fernando
Sucre released from Ad Seg.



You're out.

It's good to see you, buddy.

You all can sign each other's
yearbooks later. Where are we at?

The map is complete.
I got what I needed.

Then we're ready.


I know which pipes we need to
take beneath Psych Ward now.

Which means our way
to the Infirmary is clear.

With our new route,

we're gonna come up on
the far end of that building.

Which means we gotta
walk down 30 feet of hallway

to get to the doctor's
office, our exit point.

Which means there's only
one piece left to this whole thing.

The key to that room.

No sweat. That's all we gotta do
is run a bump and grab on a CO

like we did last time, grab
the keys, make a copy.

It's not that easy. Only the
medical staff have those keys.

How're you fixing on
getting it then, pretty?


No more surprises
this time, right?


Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.


Hello, John. Michael.

How are you?

Any day above
ground is a blessing.

Thanks be to God.

Do you mind? Please.

Thank you.

Lot of rumors goin' around.


I'm glad you're back.

I'm surprised you're still here.

I thought you'd be gone by now.

Well, we had a few setbacks.

Still planning on it?

That depends.

How does the idea of
escaping sit with the new you?

Oh, the old sinner who was
confined to these walls, he's dead.

The new soul
deserves to be free.

Well, the old sinner was
gonna have a jet ready for us.

Is the new soul gonna
be able to pull that off?

Noah had his Ark, did he not?

Let's pray.

I'm gonna need a blade.


Hit and run? BELLICK: Yes, sir.

And Burrows is
gone? That's right.

The officers?

Two are dead,
one is in critical.

Do you realize what the media's
gonna say when they get ahold of this?

We'll get him back, sir.

40 years in corrections, and this
is how they're gonna remember me.

This is Kane County. Sheriff
Ballard's a good friend of mine.

He hasn't said a word to
anyone yet. Yeah, well...

Give us four, five
hours, we'll find him.

If I don't report this to
the D.O.C. right now...

They don't have to know.

You've always been a
by-the-book guy, boss,

but this time, the book's
gonna get us all fired.

Find him.

The records of every phone call
made to and from every contact

in Quinn's cell phone.

Well, we have our haystack. Any
idea what the needle might look like?

There must be... There must
be thousands of calls here.

But to who? To where?

You know, it's gonna take us
forever to go through all of these.

And what if these have nothing to
do with Lincoln and Steadman, huh?

What if we're just burning time?

We're just that much
closer to the execution.

What's goin' on with you, Nick?

I mean, it's almost
like you want to quit.

I don't want to quit.

Then let's get to it.

Dr. Tancredi will be right in.

Morning. Morning.

How're you, uh, How're
you feeling today?




We got checkpoints
up at 171 by Lemont,

at Sage Bridge and at the
river goin' towards Romeoville.

According to our witness over there,
this new perp was driving an '06 Mustang,

black, dark blue, maybe.

We're not gonna be able to
sit on this thing very long, Brad.

This is me, Nate. I need this.

All right. You go back to Fox
River. I'll be in constant contact.

You mind if I...

How're you doin', Mr...

Roy Hawkings. Hi.

Where are you goin'?

Uh, I'd like to
get goin' if I could.

I'm late for a
meeting in Aurora.

Where you coming from? Chicago.

Kind of an indirect
route to get to Aurora.

I'm not from around here.

2006 Mustang, black.
No ID on the plates.

If any of you get so much
as a whiff of anything,

I want to know
about it immediately.

Makes two of us, pal.

What do you want
from me, Michael?


I need you to do
something for me.


Wait for me.

It won't always be like this.

In this room, in this place.

Until then, I can't.

We can't.

Damn it.

I can't.

And I gotta go.

MAN: Doors closing!


Hey, squirt.


How many times I gotta say
it? You address me formal-like.

Mr. Balls-Johnson.
That's better.

I think maybe you and I
can work something out.

Really? Check it, I got
this homie on the outside

and he can put a hundie into your
commissary account each month.

It was nice of you to
think of me like that,

but you only got
one thing I need.



I need you to get
something for me.

Do your bump and swipe thing.

Like I did with the watch?


Yeah, that did me a lot of good.

Guards found out and they
stuck me into a cell with Avocado.

So if you want
something glommed,

you need to do something for me.

Kill that son of a bitch.

That's not something I can do.

Screw Honus Wagner.

What was that?

This kid in my neighborhood,

his dad had a
baseball card collection.

So I figured, you
know, I'd swipe it.

I could get some
party cash, you know?

And there was one card in there.

A 1910 Honus Wagner.

Doesn't mean nothin' to me,
you know. Hoops is my sport.

This card, it was
worth $300,000.

So they slapped me
with grand larceny.

That's why I'm here.

That's why I'm sitting on a nickel
getting turned out like a little bitch.


A baseball card.



What are you doing here?

As soon as I heard they
granted you a visit with your son,

I knew they'd make
a move on you.

I mean what are you doing here?

I've got a car about
20 miles from here.

We'll switch out. After that,

gonna make sure you disappear.

Then this business will just
be between me and them.

Can you move?

What are you talkin' about?
They're after me, not you.

It's not as simple
as that, trust me.

I worked for them.

You worked for them?
You're an alcoholic...

Is that what you remember
or is that what you were told?

Why'd you leave?

I took a position with a group of
multinationals we call The Company.

They call every shot
this country takes,

what laws to pass, what judges
to appoint, what wars to fight.

Thing is, if you wanted to
rise in the ranks like I did,

you had to commit to leaving
everything you know behind.

Because then you start to get
access to the real information.

Information people would do a
lot of things to get their hands on,

like harm your family.

You expect me to believe that?

Why didn't you reach out to us?

Why didn't you call us?

I regretted it every day,
but I didn't have a choice.

Lincoln, the day I
left The Company,

I took all that
information with me.

That's why they're
doing this to you.

All of it, to stop me.

You have to trust me.

NIKA: Then you'll have
to tell me what's going on.

SCOFIELD: I can't do that.

Then I can't help.

Look, I did what you ask. Green
card for credit card, that was the deal.

Then, we'll make a new deal.

Michael, if somebody
find out... Believe me,

I'll be in more trouble
than you will. I know,

and this is why
I won't help you.

Look, Nika, I promise you...

Look, I don't know
what's going on.

I don't know why
you're in there,

but if there's one thing those guys
that brought me here taught me,

is that if you fight, if you struggle,
you only make things worse.

Stop fighting, Michael.

Just think about it, okay?

I'm sorry.

There it is again, the 406
number. It's on every listing.


Yeah, there's... there's
over 200 businesses,

another 100 residences
in 17 different countries.

And they're all callin'
the same number. 406.


Can you check the prefixes?

This doesn't make sense.

All these people from all over
the world are callin' this place

in the middle of nowhere
with a population of 42.

Blackfoot, Montana.


I thought you
understood, Terrence.

If you wanna talk, we set up
a meeting, at home, in person.

I saw the latest trackin'.
Your polls are headed south.

Maybe the Burrows
thing is finally starting

to gain some traction with
the swings. It could hurt.

Goodbye, Terrence. You
said it was almost over.

It is.

Are we talkin' about
Lincoln Burrows

or your candidacy?

The only reason
that you are still alive

is because I won't
let them kill you.


I'm pretty clear on that. But
the thing I can't quite figure is,

with the crap storm
this thing's become,

why they haven't killed you.



Figure out how you're gonna
get the key to the Infirmary yet?

Not quite.

You working a game
on her, or what?

I don't know.

MAN: Hey man! Get out of my way!

I've had time to think.

Not that you tried to kill me,

but about how Jesus saved me.

I didn't come here, Theodore,
to inflict any more pain.

Take my hand

so we can put this
behind us. Please.

Show me the palm
of your other hand.

Don't insult me. After
all that you've done,

the least I ask is that
you don't insult me.

Does not a warm hand

feel better than a cold shank?

You got a point
there, John. Yeah.


You got it. Truce.

Son of a bitch. It's been
two and a half hours

and you're tellin' me that
sheriff has got nothing?

I'm tellin' you the
roads are blocked off.

That Mustang's got to be somewhere
within those 10 square miles.

All right, listen, you got
two hours to find him.

After that, I have got
to talk to the press.

Hey, but there's an escaped
killer outside our walls

and there are some things that
are more important than career.

Now you find him!

STOLTE: Hey, Captain.

I don't have time.

He says he really needs to talk.

You have somethin' for me
or do you need somethin'?

'Cause if it's the latter,
you just wasted my time.

That cellie you stuck
me with, Avocado...

Do you have somethin' or do you
need somethin'? Last time I'm gonna ask.

I'm askin' you to just,
please, get me out of that cell.

Boss, please. Boss!


Let's go.


You need to start
relaxin'. It'll hurt a lot less.

Can we go on your bunk?

Sure, squirt.

Let me make it a wee
bit more comfortable.

Now we're talkin'.



Are you the doctor
from the prison?

Uh, yeah. Can, I...

Do you know a prisoner
named Michael Scofield?

I do.

You're his wife, right?
I need to talk to you.

I think Michael has got
himself in some trouble.

And I think he's planning on doing
something dangerous to get out of it.



So what is it that you... Michael
has a deep need to help people.

So I've come to understand.

That's actually how we met.

There were these men
that brought me here.

Told me I'd have good
job, but that was just a lie.

They were going to sell me.

And until they did, I...

Michael paid them
off for my freedom.

And not to keep me for himself,

like I've heard
from other girls,

but to give me an opportunity.

He's a good man.

Yes, he is.

Nika, I wanna do whatever
I can to help Michael.

To do that, I need you to tell me
what it is you think he's mixed up in.

I think this is a mistake.

No, no, it's not at all. If you
can just tell me what it is...

Please, just keep an eye on him.

God, I'm sorry. Thanks.

Listen, could I just have
a contact number for you

in case I see something wrong.
I don't think that's a good idea.

Please don't tell him
that we met. I... I...

Something I don't get. How
could killing me stop you?

'Cause I'm the one who leaked
the information about Ecofield.

They could've covered up the
scandal a thousand different ways,

but they chose to fake
Terrence Steadman's death.

And they chose you 'cause
they knew it would flush me out.

They knew that any man with a
son on death row who was innocent

would have to come forward.

But you didn't.

We had a cause, Linc.

We have a cause.

Their wars can be averted

and millions of
lives can be saved.

So you were willing
to sacrifice one.


At least I thought.

But I couldn't watch you die.

You know what you've done?

The mother of my child is dead.

I know. Do you?

Then I'm guessing you
know Michael's in Fox River

and LJ's rotting in
some jail. I know all of it.

If you think for a second...

You don't have a
choice right now.

This is all on you. All of it.

Yeah, I know.
That's why I'm here.

'Cause there's still a
chance we can make it right.

That man in there is our
transportation out of here,

which means that,
you go after him,

and that messes with my
chances of me seein' my family.

So I ain't gonna
let that happen.

So why don't you just hand me
that shank you're holdin', huh?


RICK: Hey, Sara. Hey, Rick.

You all right?

Yeah. I can't find my
keys. Would you let me in?

Oh, sure.

I'm surprised to see you here.

That makes both of us.


You were right and I'm sorry.

I should never have
gotten you involved in this.

Oh, it's okay. No, it's not.

If anyone knew what I asked...

I'm not even sure why I did it.

Thank you.

Now we're even.

You didn't owe me anything.

Yes, I did.

I owed you everything,
but that's over now.


The lady doctor,
she cares for you.

Bellick. It's the sheriff. I
think he's got something.

Go, for Bellick.

We just got a call from Steve
Schimek up at the junkyard.

Our Mustang is on the premises.
BELLICK: He seen Burrows?

NATE: Yep, I got a couple of
units five, 10 minutes away, tops.

Good, I'm right behind you.

Here. You ready to travel?

Place is gonna be crawlin'
with cops. You know that, right?

There's an unimproved
road down by the river.

There's a chance they
haven't blocked it off yet.

We got trouble.

Come on. Through here.

Come on.


Get out of here. Go.

Turn around.


Bellick, don't
shoot! Don't shoot!

MAN 1: All right on your knees!

MAN 2: Right there! Right there!

On your knees! Hands
up! Let's see them!

Take him down!

Get down! Get down!

You thought you'd go
for a little stroll, did you?

SUCRE: Did you
hear about Avocado?

Got his salchicha sliced.

How? Tweener.

But Avocado's sayin' it
got caught on the frame

while he was hopping
down off his bunk, yeah.

Why did he lie?

He doesn't want
Tweener to go to the SHU

'cause he can't
get him in there.

All I have to say is, as soon as
Avocado gets out of the infirmary,

Tweener is a dead man.

How's that key coming?

What about your car? You
know, sometimes... I just checked.

Your apartment?

Uh, no, 'cause I had
them this morning.

Well, then, they gotta be here.

Just retrace your steps. When
did you first notice they were gone?

Uh, when I came
back from lunch...

Hey, Kev, I need to take
a look at that visitation log.


ABRUZZI: Michael?

I need to know where he is.

Who? Fibonacci.

You see, my conversion requires
that I not only seek forgiveness,

but provide forgiveness, even
to my greatest transgressors.

Don't look at me like that,

like I'm the same old
man I used to be. I'm not.

Trust me, I need to reach out
to Fibonacci, so we can heal.

That's a good story,
but the answer is no.

I understand.

I'll be patient.


NICK: Hello. Hey, you're
officially now on standby.

And you'll have her
there. Do you understand?

Yeah. I'll do my best.

Hey, I said, do you understand?

Yeah. Loud and clear.


Goose Park airstrip.

You can find it on a
map. As soon as I call,

you have that bitch
there ready and waiting.


You still want me to swipe
the thing you were askin' about?

'Cause I'm havin' a
going-out-of-business sale.

Why don't you get
yourself to Ad Seg?

For that to happen, I'd have
to admit what I did to Avocado.

That'd get me what, 20 years?

I'm dead no matter what.

There may be another
way out of here.

Yeah, in a body bag.

I need to know
if I can trust you.

I'm as straight up as
they come, you know?

No, I mean really trust you.



How are you?

I'm fine. You?


Can I have your hand, please?

Here they are.

Here what are?

Your keys, they were right
over there by your inbox.

Well, you got a maintenance
guy waitin' outside here,

says you wanted him to change
the locks. Want me to call him off?

No, send him in.

Is it okay if I...

Yeah. We're about done here.

Is there something wrong?


Unless you want to talk about
what happened this morning.

I think I have a pretty
good idea. We're done here.


I want him under
24-hour surveillance.

He doesn't sneeze
without my knowing it.

What the hell
for? What did I do?

Someone tried to kill me.

Finding you in a junkyard eight miles
from here makes me think different.

Who was your accomplice?

What accomplice?

24-hour surveillance.




I heard Avocado cut
his hose on your bunk.

Must have been some
serious gymnastics goin' on.

I got something for
you this time, Boss,

but I want guaranteed
protection from Avocado,

and I want time cut off my bid.

Anything else? Couple of big-canned
whores available to you 24/7?

Believe me, what
I got is worth it.

So, are you gonna
step up or what?

This is your last
chance, Tweener.

You blow smoke again, they'll be
scraping you off the heel of my boot.

Scofield and his whole PI crew,

they're escaping.
