  • When the writers' credit for a single episode contains no less than four names, you know you're in for a bit of a cluster ****.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (18)

    • Walter: (as he examines the overgrown cold virus) Spirited, isn't it? Peter: Well, have you considered, oh, I don't know, killing it? Walter: We can always kill it, son. We can't always bring it back. Astrid: You... probably could. Walter: That is... true.

    • Peter: (to Olivia) You're talking about a man who infects people with giant viruses. If you hadn't escaped, who knows what they would have done to you. Listen to me, you just told him that you killed his wife. He said that to you to try to get a reaction out of you. To get to you. Let it go. You got his confession. Go home. Walter: I was worried too. When you were taken. Olivia: Thank you, Walter. Walter: (looking at Peter) Not as much as him, of course.

    • Charlie: Olivia may have a lead on who abducted her. Only she can't pursue it without some help. I can't help her. Peter: Why not? Charlie: Suffice it to say, that sometimes the problem with being in law-enforcement is that you got to obey the law yourself. Peter: And you think I'm the guy to break the law for you. Charlie: I'm sorry, I didn't... Peter: No, look, you're right. I am the guy to break the law for you.

    • Peter: Is that LSD? Walter: LSD? Why would I...? It's a decongestant. She is a giant cold virus, after all. Peter: Right.

    • Rachel: Hard day? Olivia: I honestly wouldn't know what to tell you. And if I did, it would be a felony. Rachel: You have a crazy job.
