Killing Your Number - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Sucre and C-Note came to Michael's help with dealing with the general. Sucre has noticeably longer hair than normal. In the next clip his hair is gone. (00:20:00 - 00:21:00)

Suggested correction: Sucre is balding, but was shaving his head very often throughout the seasons, that's why he had little to no hair. Of course, if he is not completely bald, his remaining hair grows. He didn't shave his head at that time, thus he had longer hair than normal. He shaved his hair after that, and that is the reason why in the next clip his hair is gone.

End of the Tunnel - S1-E13

Other mistake: When Michael climbs up the rope to get to the room below the infirmary, the rope is hanging from the manhole cover, but he still manages to lift the cover whilst hanging from it. In the next shot where he looks down the manhole, its clear that there is nothing other than the rope he could have held on to while lifting the cover. An impressive accomplishment, defying the laws of gravity. (00:38:00)

Suggested correction: I disagree, in the earlier episode where Michael actually climbs out of the water and attaches the rope, when climbing up through the manhole cover he uses a lip to support himself first.

Yes but the point of the mistake is that Michael is solely hanging from a rope that is attached to the man hole cover. While his weight is on the rope, he managed to lift the manhole cover. The lip mentioned is created when the cover is lifted.

Disconnect - S2-E12

Plot hole: The Kansas police arrest Bellick for, and he is subsequently convicted of, Geary's murder based in part on a threatening voice mail he left on Geary's phone. But The Message's time and date would match the records of Bellick's admittance into the hospital, thus proving him innocent of the crime.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily, The Kansas police would have to do an autopsy to determine cause of death and time of death. T-bag had killed Geary long before Bellick left the voice mail as shortly after, Roy's body arrives at the hospital. So the prosecutor could easily say the voicemail was left after Roy died to try and cover his (Bellick's) tracks.

No the paramedics said he died on the ride over.

Show generally

Other mistake: If the show takes place in May, when Lincoln is scheduled to be executed, why is it snowing?

Suggested correction: It does occasionally snow in such months. There is no rule about weather being certain. It's just what we consider usual for each season, e.g. winter = cold. Characters even comment on very "variable" weather in state.

The Message - S2-E15

Factual error: The 450 Mile road circle discussed by both Michael Scofield and Agent Mahone wouldn't be the size shown as they are traveling by car, not plane or foot. (00:20:15)

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

Suggested correction: Actually it would be. 6 hours by plane is the same as New York to London. 6 hours on foot wouldn't even get to state lines. So the circle is a very close representation on how far they could go.

Call Waiting - S3-E3

Other mistake: Sucre is supposedly passed out, however when Lincoln puts him on the couch his arm moves upward.

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.

And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Stupidity: When Michael realises they have too many clowns in the car, they think they can get rid of T-bag. But T-bag says he called someone and told them that "if he doesn't hear from me 5 minutes before the escape or 20 minutes after, he'll call the warden and blow the whistle." They could just go ahead as per usual until T-bag makes the 5 minutes before call, then kill him during the escape, and they still have 20 minutes after the escape.

Suggested correction: Michael is strongly against anyone dying. Throughout all 5 seasons he is remorseful at any loss of life. The act of killing T-bag just for the sake of it is not something he would allow.

Ogygia - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: On the tombstone in the previous episode, Michael's date of death is 11.4.2005. But in this episode, when Linc goes to the graveyard to visit Michael's grave, his date of death is 11.4.2010. It is also a different grave from the original, as the original was in South America beside the beach, and here we are led to believe it is in New York. (00:50:50)

Michael Scofield: This is going wrong in every possible way.

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.

Sona - S2-E22

Question: Bill Kim called the police, he said that. Why would he do that, because it was obvious he was going to kill Linc. It makes no sense.

mixone1995

Answer: I don't think he wanted to kill him, I think the plan was to get Linc and Michael into Sona so they could break out James Whistler.
