Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) is a Netflix original series from Jenji Kohan, the creator of “Weeds.” In this series based on a book of the same title, we follow Piper Chapman as she trades her designer jeans for an orange prison jumpsuit. Chapman was a public relations executive with a career and a fiancé when her past suddenly catches up to her and she is sentenced to time in a minimum-security women’s prison for her association with Alex, her lesbian lover drug runner from 10 years earlier. Every sentence is a story, and in Orange Is The New Black Chapman makes her way through adjusting to life behind bars, making friends with the many eccentric, unusual and unexpected people she meets. This show is so great is because of its great writing and great characters and along with that, great one-liners. Though Alex is no longer with us in the third season released on June 12th 2015, she was definitely one of the fan favorites. Here are some of the best quotes from Alex, Piper and a couple more of fan favorites.
