Next day, Busmalis visiting with Not-Miss-Sally. He complains, "The warden fired me, no warning!" NMS soothes, "Well, maybe it's all for the best." Busmalis: "I'm back to scooping up excrement." She yaps about her job, he yaps back about loving her. He asks her to marry him. They kiss, much to the neighboring visitor's delight, who freeze-frames the moment in his mind for later. God, that is just so beautiful. Later, in their pod, Busmalis tells Rebadow, "I want you to be my best man." He already has been, dude. I thought these two were the geriatric Ross and Rachel! Rebadow mentions the fact that Busmalis is in prison and can offer no more than visiting hours and good comedy for his bride-to-be. Busmalis: "I won't be in Oz for long." He helps Rebadow up from the bottom bunk to show us a large-ass hole. A new tunnel. Jeez. Busmalis: "You and me, old friend, we'll dance at my wedding." Rebadow just looks dumbfounded, since he can't believe there's YET ANOTHER plot line about a damn tunnel.
Hill. Saul saw a cross in the sky -- he changed his name to Paul. Why? I don't know. Most of us aren't that lucky. For most of us, signs of God don't come that clear. Sure they do. I just saw God, and He asked me to tell you to put a lid on it.
Said sits with his merry band of Muslims. Arif is leading the prayer when in walks Leroy. Arif: "What do you want?" He wants to talk to Said; Said ignores him and asks Arif to continue. Leroy starts to leave, but turns back to say, "I want to become a Muslim." Said, without even looking at him: "Go away." Leroy: "I know I use to hang with Adebisi but, when I saw him bleeding and you with that shank in your hand, I knew I had to change I want to join you." Said leaps to his feet in overreaction mode and yells for Leroy to get out. In walks a hack, 'cause a fight is about to start, and orders Leroy to leave. He does, looking back at Said. Arif says to Said, "I know I never liked Leroy. The man's done nothing but wrong, but if his conversion is for real " Said breaks in with, "It's not." Arif: "How do you know for sure?" Said breaks out with the "you questioning me?" Arif backs down. Said addresses the entire group with "I don't want any more talk about him." They all stare back with the wide-eyed look of kids not wanting to get yelled at. Said leaves to scrub the blood off his hands. Why won't the blood come off!?
