Episode Info

After Rebadow (George Morfogen) is beaten and robbed by other prisoners, Dr. Nathan (Lauren Velez) suggests that they turn a cell block of the prison into a wing for less dangerous senior prisoners. She also asks McManus (Terry Kinney) out on a date, but he moodily rejects her. Glynn (Ernie Hudson) has heard rumors that McManus never leaves the prison, and expresses his concern. The increasingly unstable McManus later assaults one of the prisoners who beat up Rebadow. Groves (Sean Whitesell), the oddly chipper young man who is in Oz for killing and eating his parents, has a toothache, and makes an appointment with the prison dentist, who is understandably uneasy about putting his fingers in the killer's mouth. Scott Ross (Stephen Gevedon) later suggests that Groves sell his extracted tooth to a collector (and this was before /eBay). Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) forces Beecher (Lee Tergesen) to perform in drag for the prison talent show. Sister Pete (Rita Moreno) thinks Beecher sees himself as a victim, and brings in the mother of the girl he drunkenly ran down to remind Beecher of who the real victims are. Beecher decides he doesn't want to hate himself anymore. O'Reily (Dean Winters) gives him some PCP, and Beecher has a fit, smashing a chair through the glass wall of Schillinger's cell, injuring Schillinger's eye. Jackson Mayhew (actual NBA player Rick Fox) is a basketball star who arrives at Oz after assaulting a woman. He gets the star-struck Hill (Harold Perrineau) to take drugs again after two years of being clean. A new Muslim prisoner, Huseni Mershaw (Roger Guenveur Smith), challenges Said's (Eamon Walker) authority when Said stops him from fighting with a racist. Later, Said has a heart attack, and Mershaw blithely refuses to call for help.
