Michael Scofield: I calculated the drill point coordinates, hid them in my tattoo, and then projected them back onto the wall. Everything's been worked out so the image hits the right spot. It's just math.
Fernando Sucre: What if your math is wrong?
Michael Scofield: You'll drill one of a dozen gas lines behind the wall. There'll be an explosion and we'll be burned alive.
Fernando Sucre: But your good at math, right?

John Abruzzi: You're drilling holes with an eggbeater?
