Up until this scene, Winston thought O'Brien was part of the underground brotherhood. Winston was fantasizing that O'Brien would somehow get a razor blade to him so he could kill himself. When O'Brien walks into Winston's cell Winston is surprised,

"They've got you too!" O'Brien wryly answers, "They got me a long time ago." .
