    • Walter: Blasted thing. What I wouldn't give for a good old-fashioned tumor-inducing cell phone.

    • Walter: You are my favorite thing, Peter. My very favorite thing.

    • Walter: Peter, hold on to these tight. Anti-gravity osmium bullets. Shoot Observers with these and watch them float away like balloons.
      Peter: If we shoot 'em, they're dead. Why do we want 'em to float away?
      Walter: Because it's cool.
      Peter: That makes sense, Walter.

    • Broyles: You seem to be impervious to everything.
      Windmark: I will never speak of it again. But I will admit this to you, Phillip. I, too, feel something. I believe you call it... hate.
      Broyles: The feeling is mutual.

    • Donald: It's not about fate, Walter. Yours or mine. It's about changing fate. It's about hope. And protecting our children.

      Did anyone else turn on the TV on Friday to see if a new Fringe episode would come on?

      In the back of my mind, I wished that Walter didn't have to go with the boy and that September went with his son, but at the same time I knew it had to be done.

      I stopped watching a few weeks ago, should i finish the last 4 episodes? I havent been able to bring myself to watch them. And I do know thet JJ abrams could not finish a show (WELL) if his life depended on it, so i'm a little stuck.

      JJ Abrams didn't write the Series Finale, or have much to do with Fringe creatively since the Pilot. The showrunner, Joel Wyman wrote and directed the Finale, and if you watched the previous 96 episodes...you're going to want to watch the final four. A lot is tied up within the mysteries of the show...of course you're going to have SOME problems with the finale as nothing is perfect...but it's at least a 9/10. Trust.

      Poor Olivia, she alwas had the hardest weight on her arms. I don't know about you, but for me it' pretty obviuos Olivia was the only one who remembered everything at the end.

    • CharmedOneP391 Feb 10, 2013

      I thought Peter might've too...after receiving the Tulip. But yes, Olivia's facial expression in the park was a dead giveaway. She now has the memories of what, 3 different timelines? love it

      So it's a farewell. Somehow I do not feel sad.
