Orange Is the New Black

Orange Is the New Black (sometimes abbreviated to OITNB) is an American comedy-drama web television series created by Jenji Kohan for Netflix. The series is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison (2010), about her experiences at FCI Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison. Produced by Tilted Productions in association with Lionsgate Television, Orange Is the New Black premiered on Netflix on July 11, 2013. In February 2016, the series was renewed for a fifth, sixth, and seventh season. The sixth season was released on July 27, 2018. On October 17, 2018, it was confirmed that the seventh season would be its last and would be released in 2019. Orange Is the New Black has become Netflix's most-watched original series. It has received critical acclaim and many accolades. For its first season, the series garnered 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, winning three. A new Emmy rule in 2015 forced the series to change categories from comedy to drama. For its second season, the series received four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, and Uzo Aduba won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Orange Is the New Black is the first series to score Emmy nominations in both comedy and drama categories. The series has also received six Golden Globe Award nominations, six Writers Guild of America Award nominations, a Producers Guild of America Award, an American Film Institute award, and a Peabody Award.

  Nominated for 6 Golden Globes. Another 46 wins & 120 nominations.

Big Boo:
[observing Pennsatucky's grave shrine to her aborted babies] It's like a whole little graveyard here.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Yeah, these are all my unborn babies.

Big Boo:
Ooh. [sings] Ooh. She got the Mother's Day blues! [pause] Jesus, you look like the Angel of Death. I get that a lot.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
[about aborting her babies] Yeah, I'm goin' to hell. I know it. I mean, even though I was saved and everything, I just- they never even had a chance, you know?

Big Boo:
Son, you gotta let go of that shit.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
It's easy for you to say. I'm guessing you ain't never had to abort nobody.

Big Boo:
A bold assumption. You ever read a book called Freakonomics?

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
No. What's it about, bearded ladies and midgets?

Big Boo:
Close. It's about economic theory, cause and effect.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Sounds boring.

Big Boo:
It's actually a pretty good read. They have this chapter in it, "Where Have All the Criminals Gone?"

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Over there in that field.

Big Boo:
You know, in the 1990s, crime fell spectacularly, and this book attributes that to the passing of Roe v. Wade.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
The Darkness of '73.

Big Boo:
The exact opposite, actually. I mean, the abortions that occurred after Roe v. Wade These were children that weren't wanted. Children who, if their mothers had been forced to have them, would've grown up poor and neglected and abused, the three most important ingredients when one is making a felon.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
But they were never born.

Big Boo:
[ignores Pennsatucky] So, 20 years later, when they would've been of prime crime age, they weren't there. And the crime rate dropped dramatically.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
What's your point?

Big Boo:
Well, my point is that you were a meth-head, white-trash piece of shit, and your children, had they been born, would have been meth-head, white-trash pieces of shit. So by terminating those pregnancies, you spared society the scourge of your offspring. I mean, when you think about it, it's a blessing!

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Never thought if it that way.

Big Boo:
Listen, I heard you cured Janae's knee. Is that true?

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Yes, yeah. I am just a simple woman, doing the work of the Lord.

Big Boo:
I see. Uh, look that's really... It's incredible. Um... Do you think you could help me?

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Well what's hurting?

Big Boo:
My mind, I have unclean thoughts. [whispering] Lesbian content. What do you think? You think you could help?

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
You know, you're messin' with me and I don't mess with my Lord that way.

Big Boo:
No no no, I'm not. No no no, I'm not, I swear. I mean since... Look, since I had Little Boo, I found these feelings of mothering deep Inside me. I think someday I might wanna have a kid. But I don't want to do it with another woman, 'cause those kids, they always turn out gay. And being queer, that is really hard life. The cycle of terror ends now, with me. I swear.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
You're serious?

Big Boo:
Mmm-hmm.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
You ready to take on the Lord's grace? Kneel before me. Bring the dog, please. Right here before me we have a sinner, Lord, who's ready to accept you into her heart. Cleanse her heart of sickness and her mind of filth.

Big Boo:
Yeah, I'm still seeing filth.

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Concentrate! Dear Lord, I ask you today to help this sinner find a life of family, a life of rightness. We're gonna make her pure and whole and good again. As I lay my hand on this child's head, right here, right now, I ask you Lord, help her. Help her become gay, Lord, no more!

Big Boo:
I don't feel any different. Wait, let me try picturing the 2008 U.S. women's soccer team, that usually works. Okay. Kick it, kick it! Wait. Wait, I don't feel anything. I don't feel anything!

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
It worked!

Big Boo:
I don't like this. Change me back! Don't leave me here like this. Don't leave me straight!

Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett:
Thank you, thank you.

Big Boo:
[shouting] Change me back!

Piper Chapman:
I need your panties.

Yoga Jones:
What?

Piper Chapman:
Well, I will give you the panties, but I need you to wear them. I need your vag sweat. And mybe some, um, colorless discharge. I'm starting a business selling stinky panties to perverts.

Yoga Jones:
That's the miraculous adventure?

Piper Chapman:
It's easy. I give you flavor packets, and you give me something you're, uh, you're already giving away for free.

Big Boo:
And then you get to keep the money.

Piper Chapman:
And you are supporting a local business, keeping jobs right here at home. I'm like American Apparel, with less implied statutory rape.

Yoga Jones:
It's disgusting.

Piper Chapman:
I understand. I too was once embarrassed and squeamish by my personal [pauses] eau de parfum. But then I thought: Why should I be ashamed? Isn't that a part of the self-hatred that has been bred into me by the patriarchy? And are those same men that would shame me not the same men that would wear my panties on their faces, inhaling deeply? Ladies, now is the time to be bold. For when these men smell your panties, they are smelling your character. Let them smell daring and courage. Let them smell women who are unabashed and un-self-conscious. And let them say that Litchfield, Litchfield is a place where women love their bodies and have love to spare. Sisters, we may be incarcerated, but our panties will travel the world. And in that way, long after we are gone, our smell, our smell will linger in some gas station in Toronto, in some office cubicle in Tokyo. And in that way, we are known. And in that way, we are remembered. Do you want to be remembered?

Big Boo:
Yeah.

Piper Chapman:
Then sweat profusely, and fart with abandon, and make a reek. Make a reek, my sisters! Make a reek to last one thousand years!

Joe Caputo:
You ever see an image that sears itself into your brain? Like that movie about the hiker guy, who cuts off his own arm with a Swiss Army Knife? Yeah, the sound... the tendons... F***! I wish I'd never watched that part. [pause] You know what tops that for me? You know what image I can't unsee, it's still stuck in there, flickering at least once a day, making me want to lose my lunch?

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[busy munching loudly on snacks, answers with his mouth full] No, sir.

Joe Caputo:
Your bare ass, Mendez. Your pimply, white ass - [Mendez snickers, shakes his head a bit bewildered, but continues munching] - Bouncing up and down between the brooms and the mops, ramming into that poor girl. [wags his finger angrily at Mendez] A girl that YOU were supposed to PROTECT! And KEEP SAFE! Your ass; it haunts me.

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[keeps munching without a beat] Mmm. I'm sorry to hear that, sir.

Joe Caputo:
I've been doin' this kind of work 25 years. And it's guys like you that give the whole profession a bad name. If it was up to me, you'd never set foot on this property again. But, considering that the D.O.C. didn't press charges, it was your word against mine... [grins slowly]... Until now.

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[mouth still half full, mumbles absent-mindedly] Well, I've been doin' my job, sir. Just gave out fifteen shots this morning.

Joe Caputo:
[evenly] You got her pregnant.

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[stops munching suddenly, stares] No...

Joe Caputo:
[nods] Mmm. Sadly for her, yes. That poor girl is carrying around a sadistic little mustachioed shit inside her.

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[to himself, in total shock] Whoa...

Joe Caputo:
[smiles broadly] Mendez - you're f***in' fired.

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[gets up awkwardly, dusts his hands off on his pants]... I understand, sir.

Joe Caputo:
[chuckles, keeps grinning, as he beats Mendez to the door] No, um... I... I don't think that you DO understand. [opens the door to reveal two U.S. Marshals] You're also under arrest.

Arresting Federal Marshall:
[handcuffs Mendez] We're in.

George 'Pornstache' Mendez:
[says nothing, but glares silently at Mendez]

Joe Caputo:
[still smiling, reaches to unclip Mendez's radio from his belt and shoulder clip] Let me get that for you. [Mendez is led out of his office, as Caputo silently pumps his fist victoriously]
