Orange is the New Black Season 4 Episode 12 Quotes

Caputo: Listen to me. This isn't for someone like you. This place crushes anything good. It's like a monster that's grown too big for its stubby little legs, and now it's stumbling around crushing whole cities. You can't survive it Bayley.

Caputo: Neither. Both, I... Even if you're the city now, one day you'll be the monster. Working here changes who you are.
