Augustus Hill: [the final lines of the series] So, what have we learned? What's the lesson for today? For all the never-ending days and restless nights in Oz? That morality is transient? That virtue cannot exist without violence? That to be honest is to be flawed? That the giving and taking of love both debases and elevates us? That God or Allah or Yahweh has answers to questions we dare not even ask? The story is simple. A man lives in prison and dies. How he dies, that's easy. The who and the why is the complex part. The human part. The only part worth knowing. Peace.

[Vern's sister visits him for the first time in over 20 years]
Vernon Schillinger: Greta. What I did, shutting you out after your wedding. I had to.

Warden Martin Querns: THIS... is a restraining chair. It will be placed in the hole. If you break any of the rules, YOU... will be placed... in IT! I wanted to show you this bad boy to let you know that I will NOT... take any SHIT... from ANYONE! So remember, don't FUCK with Querns!
Tobias Beecher: You wouldn't understand, you kill for sport.
Chris Keller: *I* don't understand? *I'm* not the one who's here by accident. I kill because I have to.
[Mukada has rebuffed her advances]

Vernon Schillinger: You let a nigger take you in the ass? You know what this means.

Clarence Seroy: And you knew this all along?
James Robson: Yep.
James Robson: [Seroy punches Robson; his nose is bleeding, Robson touches it with his finger] Ooh, blood.
[Schillinger is up against the wall in horror as he looks at the blood; Robson laughs, amused]
James Robson: Jeez, Vern. I've never seen you so scared.
[taunts Schillinger with his bloody fingers and leaves, laughing]
