- Drumgoole?

- That's Warden Drumgoole, convict.

- Captain.

- Move him!

Move your ass!

Let's go. Come on!

You'll be issued one bar of soap,

two rolls of toilet paper per month.

Somebody steals...

Turn your ass around!

Somebody steals them, or you lose

them, wipe your ass with your shirt.

You have one uniform.

Your number is 5-1-0. Remember it.

This is C-wing. You will eat, shower
