Safe and Sound - S4-E5

Audio problem: When Gretchen kills the guy in the prison he lets out a very obvious fake scream similar to a Wilhelm scream. Also, he is being choked around the neck, how is he able to make the scream? Take note of when you see this scene in the next episode's review. The guy doesn't make the scream in that version.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: That happens as he is put on the couch unfortunately I've seen enough people passed out through drink and or drugs that when moved do move their arms or legs slightly.

More quotes from Prison Break

Trivia: S4E11: (spoiler) The Scylla alarm on the General's computer is visible on screen for a second or two. Below the flashing word 'alarm', it says it is in section AA-23. That's also the designation of the prison block where Princess Leia is being held in Star Wars. This was certainly done intentionally, but is also easy to miss.

Question: I don't understand how Michael and Lincoln have different last names when they are brothers with the same parents, why aren't they both Burrows or both Scofield?

Answer: Michael took his mother's maiden name after his father deserted them.
