* Wharton is only pretending to be drugged when he is picked up to be transferred to the Green Mile, which is referenced by Paul mentioning it is a mistake that 'they will only make once.' The funny part is that Wharton was pretending ''the whole time'', including when the guards were '''forced to dress him.''' Ewww.

--> '''Harry:''' Piss on me? ''(proceeds to spray Wild Bill with it on full blast)''
*** And then Wharton tries to fight his way out of the spray by ''punching it''.
* The part with the Moon Pie. You have to admit, that was a pretty funny prank. (Brutal, who was the recipient of the Moon Pie spit, admitted it.)

--> '''Brutal:''' ''[[[TranquilFury in very calm voice]]]'' Hope your bags are packed.
--> '''Wild Bill:''' ''[with glee of a five-year old who was just promised to be taken to a candy factory]'' My bags are packed! I'm ready to go! Where we going? Let's go!

-->'''Paul''': Toot, one more remark like that and I'll have Van Hay roll on two for real, and I'll have one less crazy old trustee in the world.


--> '''Old Toot-Toot''': Yeah. I want a fried chicken dinner with gravy on the 'taters, and I wanna shit in your hat, and I've got to have Mae West sit on my face because I'm one horny motherfucker.

--> '''Old Toot-Toot''': The lord is my shepherd and so on and so forth. I'm sorry for all the bad shit I've done, and the people I've tramped on, and I hope they forgive me, and I'll never do it again - [[BlackComedy that's for sure]]. Still prayin', still prayin', gettin' right with Jesus!
