Jotaro later reveals that the man who framed Jolyne was Johngalli A.. Johngalli set up the car accident by sending thugs from prison to throw a random hitchhiker out into the street during the rain.

Jolyne decides to make a bet with her about who could go without masturbating the longest, but the prisoner laughs and says they wouldn't be able to prove that.

Two guards of Green Dolphin Street Prison who are responsible for handling new prisoners when Jolyne arrives. The brunette is empathetic toward prisoners, as she is worried when Jolyne looks like she fainted and thinks it's because her straight jacket is on too tight due to the humid air. When she starts loosening the belt for Jolyne, the other guard stops her and says the room is specially designed that way. She loathes the prisoners, stating that the bad treatment she inflicts is wholly deserved after a life of disrespecting the law. The rude guard steps on Jolyne and orders her around, but Jolyne merely plays around with the two guards by provocatively posing at them while naked during the strip-search.
An impatient prison doctor who makes sure the prisoners are healthy, uncaring of whether he hurts the patients during his assessment. He checks Jolyne's physical condition upon her entry in Green Dolphin Street Prison, and bluntly pokes her eyes with his fingers when she is off guard just to check whether she has fake eyes or contact lenses. When he's finished with the check-up, he gives Jolyne only five seconds to read and sign the documents. The doctor is later seen checking Ermes Costello out of the infirmary.
The scene where he checks Jolyne is omitted in the anime.

When he says it's his job to cut their hair short, Jolyne points to two inmates with long hair and asks why they were able to keep it. The hairdresser is actually corrupt and accepts bribes from the prisoners for botching the job. He coughs to subtly reveal that prisoners can either pay $5 to save five inches, $10 to save ten inches, $30 to save all their hair, or get shaved bald for free. Jolyne pays him $30 and keeps her hair.

One particularly zealous shotgun-wielding guard yells at Gwess to get away from the door leading to their room if she has no business there. He then hears several noises in their room outside the ward, caused by Jolyne growing back to her original size. A bald, laid-back guard dismisses the first guard's suspicions, saying it was probably just the coffee machine. However, Jolyne makes even more noises and the three guards almost catch her as they look under their desk. Jolyne quickly uses Stone Free to pour hot coffee on the bald guard's pants and runs away while they're distracted, only for the suspecting guard to see nothing below the table.
Later, Gwess tricks Jolyne into getting past the gun point and the first guard who heard noises earlier is shocked to see her. He sounds the alarm for a prison break and goes to get backup. As they arrive, Jolyne had disappeared because she managed to return to the ward after beating up Gwess and demanding to be shrunk again.
