Hi, these're my four questions, thanks for your help!:-D


Pope -I assume this is about your transfer request for Michael Scofield.
Paul -More specifically, why you denied it.
Pope -Look, Mr. Kellerman, do I come into your house and tell you where to put your furniture?
Hale -We're just asking for professional courtesy.
Pope -But you're asking for a federal courtesy in a state penitentiary.
Paul -Most people in your position would be happy to have another body taken off their hands. (1.What does " to have another body taken off their hands" mean? Does Paul mean Pope should be happy, because he don't need to be responsilbe for another inmate any more?)
Pope -These men are my responsibility from the minute they walk through those walls to the time that they've paid their debt to society, I'm responsible for them. Which means that unless Mr. Scofield has done something I don't know about, he is gonna stay here at Fox River under my watch.
Paul -Mr. Pope, in our line of work, we've discovered that just about everyone has done something that someone doesn't know about.
Pope -What's this?
Paul -Right now, just a piece of history. Whether it becomes a current event, now that's up to you.
Pope -My wife already knows about Toledo.
Paul -Does she really? You're a smart man, Warden. I'm sure if you look hard enough, you could find a reason why Michael Scofield's presence is no longer required at this particular correctional facility.




John -I got a ripped fertilizer bag inside! Hey, you! You! Get in there and clean it up before this whole place starts smelling like San Juan. Hey, he's on his way. You mind telling me what this is all about?
Michael -These are the guys we're breaking out with.
J -I don't think so, Fish. That was not our agreement. I'm not gonna work with this...crazy rhino. (2.Does rhino mean rhinoceros, or it has some slang meaning here?)
Lincoln -Keep pushing it, John. (3.What "pushing" mean in this sentence?)
J -Yeah, I keep pushing it, you know. Huh? What's your deal, man?
L -Touch my brother again, and I'll show you.
J -Brother? Your brother?
M -We've only got a few minutes. We're gonna spend them spitting on each other, or are we gonna talk some business? But the reason we're all here today is we have a decision to make.
J -Yeah?
M -English, Fitz or Percy? If we're gonna pull this off, we need to take one of them out.
J -And you want us to tell you which one?
M -I just want you to help me get to them. I'll take it from there.
Sucre -You're crazy, you know that?
M -All I need is five minutes.
J -Oh, you won't even get five seconds.
S -Thought you had everything worked out, Fish.
M -We're not breaking out of a Jamba Juice, gentlemen. It's gonna take a little more than digging a few holes. There are eyes, ears, dots that couldn't be connected from the outside. (4.What does this sentence mean? I can't get what Michael's saying)
L -And English, Fitz and Percy...
M -One of those dots.
J -And how exactly are you supposed to pull this off?
M -With a little help from my friends.


Have a nice day!

yes it does mean that he should be happy that he is not having to be responsible for an extra person



J -I don't think so, Fish. That was not our agreement. I'm not gonna work with this...crazy rhino. (2.Does rhino mean rhinoceros, or it has some slang meaning here?)

Lincoln -Keep pushing it, John. (3.What "pushing" mean in this sentence?)

"pushing in this sentence means trying one's boundries


M -I just want you to help me get to them. I'll take it from there.
Sucre -You're crazy, you know that?
M -All I need is five minutes.
J -Oh, you won't even get five seconds.

He is saying that there are things that are out of his controll, eyes that are watching, ears that are listening and dots, like connect the dots games that haven't been connected to solve the puzzle.

hope this helped :)

Hi, XINLAI-UE!

Imagine a wild rhinocerous charging around the tundra! There is no way to control its actions or behavior! In Prison Break it refers to a prisoner who acts a little crazy and unpredictable, like a charging rhino. "I don't want anything to do with that crazy rhino"!

Enjoy!
