And the money starts rolling in. The rest of the "Others" (Beecher, Hill, and Busmalis, if your memory needs refreshing) give some, as does Said. Ryan, cancer survivor that he is, makes a generous donation. Other contributors include El Cid, Schillinger (!), and Nappa, and soon Rebadow is telling McManus that he's raised almost $2000. McManus gives him an envelope and says that it "should put [him] over the top." "Should"? That's some creative matching you've got going on there, McManus. Ass. Rebadow is moved in spite of McManus's semi-welching, and says that he's going to wire the money to his mother the next day. He says the gift will be anonymous. McManus asks if he's ashamed. Rebadow: "Yes." Hey, someone didn't say "no"!
At night, Rebadow cries in his cell. Busmalis pops his head out of the hole, then wisely retreats back into it.
In their pod, Wangler suggests to Adebisi that they steal Rebadow's money and force him to tell everyone that he sent it. Adebisi: Denied. Wangler asks why. Adebisi: "Because sometimes, it's good to be human." It's witchcraft! I bet Prag Boy's relieved.
Hoyt lies in bed, shirtless and resplendent in all his tattooed glory. We flash to him standing in line in a video store. The clerk seems to be taking his sweet time, so Hoyt pushes to the front of the line, and quickly starts beating the shit out of the guy. "Prisoner Number 98H432. Jaz Hoyt." Aggravated assault in the first degree, eight years, parole in four.
Alvarez walks in the main area when Hill calls to him. What's with the placement of Hoyt's prisoner flashback? Nothing makes any sense in this episode. Maybe someone had Fontana under a spell. Or maybe Evan Seinfeld insisted on showing his tattoos. Hill asks Alvarez if he's ever seen an opportunity to escape while working in the hospital. Alvarez asks if he's planning to escape, and Hill says he's "exploring the possibilities." Where did this development come from? It's so bizarre. Alvarez says the ward's a dead end, but if Hill finds another way, to let him know. Hill smiles, also bizarrely.
Glynn welcomes a bunch of new hacks, as apparently the budget for correctional officers has been increased. I guess the Pernicious Peewee wanted to make sure he didn't end up alone in a darkened hallway, although he should probably increase the light bulb budget as well. The camera lingers a bit too long on a Hispanic hack...
...who is next seen patrolling the main area. El Cid looks up and tells Guerra that he knows the hack, whose name is Rivera. He tells Guerra that Rivera was "always a pussy." Alvarez comes up, and Guerra's all, "Speaking of pussies." Oh, Chico, just because El Cid lets you sit with him doesn't make you The Man. (Sorry.) Alvarez says he wants to talk to El Cid alone, and Guerra leaves. Alvarez tells El Cid about his father and grandfather, and El Cid is like, I know, and? Alvarez says he used to run things, and while he's fine with El Cid taking over, he doesn't enjoy being treated like so much mierda de perro, and asks what he can do to get in El Cid's good graces. El Cid says he's too white, and clarifies that he means he's too white inside. Well, that's nice, but if that's what he meant, I'd like to know how he came to that conclusion in the previous episode within twenty seconds of meeting Alvarez. Alvarez says he's not, and that he'll do anything El Cid says. In keeping with the title of this episode, I'll point out that that's the sort of statement that could get you into a position named after a certain animal posthaste. However, El Cid has something else in mind, as he points Rivera out to Alvarez and tells him to do something nasty-sounding to his ojos. Alvarez asks if he's kidding, but El Cid merely repeats the command, and walks off. Judging from a certain image in the opening credits, he's not so much kidding.
