* BadassBoast: Martin Querns introduces himself as the new unit manager of Emerald City with one of these, earning him the respect of the prisoners.
-->'''Querns:''' The warden is correct, I have served in many correctional institutions. But what he didn't say, is that like most of you, I come from the streets. I am not some candy-ass white liberal looking to turn you all into "better citizens". I intend to meet with each of you individually, but until that time, keep one principle in mind: '''''Don't fuck. With Querns.''''' That's all.

Added DiffLines:

* PariahPrisoner:
** The prison has a separate small wing to house inmates who used to work in law enforcement to protect them from other prisoners.
** Zigzagged by one of the few child killers in the show, Malcolm "Snake" Coyle. He was arrested on a robbery charge, but when the truth about his other crimes came out ([[StupidEvil he couldn't help bragging about it]]), all the other gangs allied together to protect the guy who snitched on him. The Homeboys, however, were pissed off when Coyle ended up dead, albeit for "political" reasons rather than moral ones.

* ShoutOut: When Clayton Hughes [[spoiler: shoots Governer Devlin]], his hair is cut into a mohawk and he wears a green army jacket, not unlike [[TaxiDriver Travis Bickle]]. Interestingly enough, the whole affair is reminiscent of the Hinckley shooting, which was inspired by TaxiDriver.

Added DiffLines:

* RapeAndRevenge: PrisonRape is really rampant in the setting, which turns victims into "prags", prisoners who trade in sexual favors for protection. The only reliable way for such a prisoner to regain their cred is to kill their rapist.
** Beecher gets revenge on Schillinger for all the crap he did to him, which includes rape, by [[EyeScream knocking glass in his eye]], beating him up, and [[ExcrementStatement crapping on him]].
** James Robson becomes a prag to Wolfgang Cutler after he is kicked out of the Aryan Brotherhood, who sodomizes him with a spoon several times. Robson gets revenge by tricking Cutler into killing himself through EroticAsphyxiation.
