Governor Frank Tancredi: What was it your mother used to say? "It's always nice to be invited to the dance, even if you don't have the right shoes"?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Yeah. She also used to say "Your father's a lying bastard" but I figured that was just the booze talking.


"Prison Break: Rendezvous (#2.10)" (2006)
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Running off into the sunset with the man that lied to me? Really? Did you even know about the others, that I would be putting T-Bag back onto the street?
Michael Scofield: I never meant for that to happen. I was doing what I had to do. My brother was gonna die...
Dr. Sara Tancredi: And now my father's dead...

Michael Scofield: I've arranged for us to get to Panama. We're meeting up with my brother tommorrow.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Wait, thats your... plan? To run away to Panama with the two most wanted men in... in America? I... Michael I came here because I thought you were going to have real answers for me.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: We've got to get back to my car.
Michael Scofield: It's too far.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: If we go now before he gets more people...
Michael Scofield: He's not going to call for backup. He wants his privacy.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Why?
Michael Scofield: He's not trying to catch me-he's trying to kill me.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Michael, tell me something. Is there a part of you that enjoys this?
Michael Scofield: Peroxide and an open wound? No.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: [Laughs] Escaping from prison and beaing on the run, and the danger, and the fear, and the rush, and all that. It a... it feels to me like chasing a high. And I know what that's like. And I should know better by now.
Michael Scofield: I never thought about it like that. I know you've heard this before, but it won't always be like this.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: From everything you've told me, it's just getting worse.
Michael Scofield: They can't chase us forever. The guy who caught up with us today- he stops at the border, that's why we have to get across. And I have the poeple and place to help us do that. They're meeting us tommorrow. One more day Sara, one more day. That's all I'm asking.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: You know, it's why I started.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: Started what?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Using. Same reason as you.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: Why? Because you had to stay up all night during residency?
[laughs]
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: Because the bass player dumped you in front of the whole sorority? Yeah, you and I got a lot in common.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I've seen people die too.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: I'm assuming you didn't make them die.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: You need help.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: Not what I'm lookin' for.
[pulls out his gun]
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: For your sake, I hope your boyfriend calls back real soon.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Benzodiazepine's a hardcore tranquillizer, man. You take these everyday?
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: Twenty milligrams.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: You must feel like you're walking under water.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: I do. It's very quiet down here.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: That's why you started, right? Peace and quiet? It's not why you do it any more though, it is? I know it's the headaches, right? And you probably don't sleep. And you know you're gonna destroy yourself, right?
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: I hadn't ruled that out as a possibility.

[talking about Michael]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: He decided it was for the best, and I couldn't take this anymore.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: It's over just like that, huh?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Yeah.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: It's over like the time you flew to New Mexico on a dead woman's ID to meet up with him? Or it's over like the time that you met up and got back together at the train station in Evansville? Or maybe like today, when you checked into this hotel here two hours ago? Which one is it like, like that?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I don't honestly care if you believe me or not.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: No plans to meet? No phone calls?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I'm telling you the truth.
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: He's not going to call you?
[Sara slams the phone on the coffee table]
FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: Don't lie to me. You don't want to do that.

FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone: [on the floor] You don't really wanna do this.

"Prison Break: Bad Blood (#2.17)" (2007)
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Either way, you still owe me dinner.
Michael Scofield: Is that so?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Yeah. First week in Fox River, you promised me,if you ever got out of there, you'd take me to dinner.
Michael Scofield: Well, maybe, after we wrap this up, we can stop off and get you a burrito on the way back to Pope's house.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Scofield, I don't know what you're used to, but anything short of a filet mignon not going to cut it with me.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Henry, please listen!
Warden Henry Pope: Sarah, I'm tempted to say, you should've known better!

Michael Scofield: [pointing a gun at Henry] I just want my brother's life back. I want people to know the truth. I'd give anything for that. I'd lay down my life.
Warden Henry Pope: Well that's easy for you to say standing on that side of the gun.
[Michael puts the gun on the kitchen counter and turns it over pointing towards himself]
Michael Scofield: What if I'm standing on this side?
Michael Scofield: I'm not the man you think I am.
Warden Henry Pope: Well I have a pretty good idea of who you are, Michael.
Michael Scofield: If that's true then you already know I never wanted to be in Fox River. I never wanted to meet you, Henry. I certainly didn't want to ruin your life.
Warden Henry Pope: Yeah, well, you've done a pretty damn good job!
Dr. Sara Tancredi: You're not saying anything to him I haven't said myself, Henry. I've looked into this. What he's saying to you is absolutely true.

Michael Scofield: ...I made a deal with Pope.

Lincoln Burrows: WHAT? We don't even know what this thing is! It could be *nothing* Michael! You know about this?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Not until it came out of his mouth.
Michael Scofield: It was the only way I could think of. You two can still finish this. You'll just have to do it without me.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: How about now?
Lincoln Burrows: He's been abandoned his whole life. Dad. Mom. She died young. And now me.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Think that's why he's here? 'Cause your... your death would feel like it's happening again?
Lincoln Burrows: I abandoned him a long time ago. That's why he's here.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: I'm supposed to give you a physical this evening. Let me apologize in advance for the heavy dose of irony we're about to participate in.
Lincoln Burrows: It's all right, just doing your job.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Yeah, well letting the State know that you're healthy enough to execute is not why I went to medical school.

"Prison Break: Pilot (#1.1)" (2005)
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Tattoo looks fresh... hold that. I guess being a diabetic you don't mind needles.
Michael Scofield: I'm Michael by the way.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Scofield, I read your report.
Michael Scofield: And you are?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Doctor Tancredi, will do.
Michael Scofield: Tancredi, like the governor. You're not related, are you? Hmm... wouldn't think you'd find the daughter of Frontier Justice Frank working at a prison, as a doctor no less.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I believe being part of the solution, not the problem.
Michael Scofield: Hmm... "Be The Change You Want To See In The World"
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Hmm?
Michael Scofield: What?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Nothing, that was just my senior quote.
Michael Scofield: That was you, this whole time I was thinking it was Gandhi.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: [laughing] ... you're very funny.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Sit tight... put direct pressure on that, I'll be back in a sec.

Michael Scofield: So... so how do we play this, you hook me up with a few weeks supply.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Nice try, no hypos on the floor.
Michael Scofield: I'm the farthest thing from a junkie, trust me.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I got news for you Michael, trust means absolutely zero inside these walls. The only ways your getting that insulin is if I'm administering it.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: I guess, so.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Tattoo looks fresh. Hold that. I guess, being a diabetic, you don't mind needles.

Michael Scofield: "Be the change you wanna see in the world"... What?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Nothing. That was just my senior quote.
Michael Scofield: That was you? This whole time, I was thinking it was Gandhi.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: You're very funny.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: You went to Loyola?
Michael Scofield: You've been checking up on me.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I like to get to know my patients. I went to North Western. Graduated a year after you did.
Michael Scofield: Maybe we met before. You know, drunk out at a bar somewhere.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I would have remembered.
Michael Scofield: Is that a compliment?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: No.

[pause]

Michael Scofield: Wait for me. It won't always be like this, this room, this place.
[she kisses his hands]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Until then I can't. We can't.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Damn it. I can't. And I gotta go.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: What do you want from me, Michael?
Michael Scofield: Sara... I need you to do something for me.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: What?
Michael Scofield: Wait for me. It won't always be like this. This room... in this place.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Until then, I can't. We can't... I can't and I've gotta go.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: I'm in a lot of trouble, I think.
Nurse Katie Welch: I, I need to apologise to you. They threatened my job if I didn't talk, and...
Dr. Sara Tancredi: No, no, no, no. No. One thing you learn when you're walking the steps, is that you never outsource a blame that belongs in your own backyard.
Nurse Katie Welch: Well, you're not the first correctional worker that fell for a con. Trust me.

FBI Agent Foley: You're being considered as an accessory to this, you know that, don't you?

Dr. Sara Tancredi: No.
FBI Agent Foley: Did you have a sexual relationship with Scofield?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: No.
FBI Agent Foley: But you had feelings for him.

"Prison Break: Chicago (#2.16)" (2007)

"Prison Break: Cell Test (#1.3)" (2005)
Dr. Sara Tancredi: [Cut to Fox River infirmary. Sara tends to Michael's bandaged foot] No redness or swelling, so there's no sign of infection. I'm going to keep it on antibiotics for the next ten days. You should be good!
[She stands up]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Michael you understand by law I'm obligated to file a report if I feel there's been prisoner misconduct. There's no way this injury happened by stepping on a blade in a garden shed.
[Michael pulls on his sock]
Michael Scofield: If you file the report, things could get a lot worse for me.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: They're not already?
Michael Scofield: Not compared to what they could be.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Yeah. Scared?
[Michael doesn't say anything]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Man enough. Okay.
[Michael smiles and laughs softly]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Um, here's what I think. I think you are scared, and you wouldn't be human if you weren't scared in a place like this.
Michael Scofield: When I was young, I couldn't sleep at night.
[He finishes tying his shoe]
Michael Scofield: Because I thought there was a monster in the closet.
[Sara smiles]
Michael Scofield: But my brother told me there wasn't anything in the closet but fear. And fear wasn't real. He said it wasn't made of anything, it was just
[he pauses]
Michael Scofield: air. Not even that. He said you just have to face it. You just have to open that door, and the monster would disappear.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Your brother sounds like a smart man.
Michael Scofield: He is. In here though, you face your fear. You open that door, and there's a hundred more doors behind it. And the monsters that are hiding behind them, are all real.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: If you want, I could recommend you be sent to AdSeg.
Michael Scofield: [Smiling bluntly] With the rape victims and the snitches.
[He stands up]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: It would keep you safe.
Michael Scofield: Thanks. But I think I'd like to face the monsters on my own.
[He walks out]

[Michael has had some of his toes cut off and Sara goes to unwrap the sock cover his foot]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Okay, let's take a look.
[Michael, crying, grabs her wrists frantically, not able to handle very much more]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: [Softly, gently] You're okay, you're okay.
[He slowly let's go of her wrists and she quickly but gently unwraps the red sock. Michael sees his foot, looks away and cries harder]
Dr. Sara Tancredi: What happened?
[taking a deep breath]
Michael Scofield: Nothing.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: This isn't nothing Michael, I need you to tell me what happened.
[Delirious because of the pain]
Michael Scofield: Don't make me lie to you.
[She looks at him, alarmed]
Michael Scofield: Please!


"Prison Break: Bolshoi Booze (#2.11)" (2006)
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I don't know anything about any of this!
Secret Service Special Agent Paul Kellerman: Really? Then why did you give your father the file on Lincoln Burrows? Why did you open the door for Scofield and help him escape? Why did Scofield send you those coded notes? Why did you come to New Mexico to meet him? Don't try to float a babe in the woods routine by me, it's really gonna piss me off. So, come on.
[Sara doesn't say anything. Kellerman grabs Sara's head, forces her into the tub of water, and holds her down]

Dr. Sara Tancredi: I don't know where Michael is.
Secret Service Special Agent Paul Kellerman: This is not about Michael; this is about your father. He left Washington with something that didn't belong to him, and we need it back.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: And you killed him for it?
Secret Service Special Agent Paul Kellerman: I didn't, no. For what that's worth. But I hope that his death properly illustrates the magnitude of the situation that we're in right now. So, where is it?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I don't know what you're talking about.
Secret Service Special Agent Paul Kellerman: Where is it?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I don't know what you're talking about.
Secret Service Special Agent Paul Kellerman: Where is it?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: I don't know what you're talking about.
Secret Service Special Agent Paul Kellerman: Sara, there's a next step involved in this. And you don't want to experience that.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Why do I get the feeling you're saying goodbye to me?
Michael Scofield: In a place like this, you never know which day's going to be your last.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: [finishing cleaning the wound] Listen, I'm really sorry about your brother.
Michael Scofield: [reaching out for her arm and caressing her hand] Thank you.

Michael Scofield: You kept it.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Kept what?
Michael Scofield: The flower.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Well, I'm a packrat. I never throw anything out.
[he looks around the spotless infirmary]
Michael Scofield: Yeah, well this clutter. It's... overwhelming.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: You should see my apartment.
Michael Scofield: Whoa. We haven't even had our first date yet and you're already inviting me in. I thought you were a nice girl.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Oh Michael, we all know nice girls finish last.
[motions for Michael to lift up his shirt]
Michael Scofield: So where do you finish?
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Depends on where I start. Deep breath.
[uses stethoscope to listen to Michael's heart beat, and looks up at him. Michael gives her the blue steel and forgets to continue breathing deeply]
Angela West: [suddenly walking in] Sara, we're backing up out here.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Right, sorry.

Dr. Sara Tancredi: Why?
Bruce Bennett: Your father got a call from the White House. They withdrew his nomination.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: What? I talked to him 2 hours ago, he didn't say anything about that.
Bruce Bennett: It just happened. According to them, his confirmation was going to be a problem.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: We had the votes, right?
Bruce Bennett: Super majority.
Dr. Sara Tancredi: Okay, so, President Reynolds pulled the plug on a sure thing in order to start over from scratch? How often does something like that happen in politics?
