Awesome: Prison Break
  • Possibly one of the biggest cake takers is in Season 4, where Michael and co pull a big move on the Company in the episode "Selfless". Some classic lines, including:
    Lincoln: Bet you wish you'd framed somebody else, huh?
    Sucre: Suck it, General.
    General: How did you get all five cards?
  • After being betrayed by one of his prison cohorts, Abruzzi breaks a lightbulb, sneaks up to the traitor, presses the shard of glass to his eye and delivers yesterday's news.
  • And T-Bag's takeover of Sona at the end of Season 3, truly cementing him as a Magnificent Bastard.
  • Mahone killing the agent who murdered Mahone's 7 year old son. Mahone calmly tortures the man to make him apologise. Then as the man is about to launch into his mind bending 'we're not so different, you and I-' Mahone kicks him off a jetty, to his death, without a word, and calmly leaves
  • Michael in season three hiding a Batman Gambit inside his escape attempt to make sure all the people he doesn't want with him don't make it out.
  • Sucre refusing to tell the Panamanian police where the brothers are while being brutally tortured at the end of Season 2.
  • The frequent reunions of Michael and Sucre - most notably after the 'double-cross' in Utah.
    Michael: Adios, amigos?
    Sucre: (long pause, then grins) Too much?
    Michael: You were great. (bro hug)
  • Michael purposely rigging the escape tunnel to collapse and kill Sammy in the third season.
    • Sammy himself had an awesome moment in the beginning of the third season, by beating and snapping the neck of another inmate, shocking the usually stoic Michael.
