  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (5)

    • Walter: You understand better than most the pain a lie can inflict. Peter: Yes, I do. Which is why, even though I expect it's going to fundamentally change how she feels about me, I am going to tell Olivia everything. Okay? Walter: You're a good man, Peter. She knows that.

    • Peter: What was it? Walter: Bathroom! I'd forgotten that a couple of nights ago, I used my cauterizer to remove an uncomfortable growth between my… Peter: Less information, better. Walter: Have you spoken to Olivia? Peter: I did. Called her last night. She's doing better but she's still recuperating. Walter: I understand how difficult it is to be candid with people that you care about. Particularly when it concerns matters that are intimate in nature. Peter: Ready to go? Walter: Yes, I am. And by intimate, I mean sexual. Peter: Yeah, I got that.

    • Walter: Where do you suppose I could pick up quality imported pickled herring? Peter: No idea. Why? Walter: I'm thinking of Scandinavia. Peter: Scandinavia? Walter: The Blood Eagle. A Norse method of torture... breaking the ribs and spreading them out to resemble blood-stained wings. Peter: So we're looking for a Viking? Walter: Whoever did this was trained. These incisions have been made with precision. This is beautiful work. Definitely not a Viking. They were ruthless.

    • Peter: What is it? Olivia: You know what Barrett said? He said that he looked into her eyes, and knew that it wasn't her. Peter: Olivia... Olivia: I understand the facts. I know that she had reams of information about me and about my life and about the people that were close to me. And I understand that if she slipped up that she would have a completely reasonable explanation for it. And I guess to expect you to have seen past that is perhaps asking a bit too much. But when I was Over There, I thought about you. And you were just a figment of my imagination. But I held onto you. And it wasn't reasonable, and it wasn't logical, but I did it, so… why didn't you? She wasn't me. How could you not see that? Now she's everywhere. She's in my house, my job, my bed, and I don't want to wear my clothes anymore, and I don't want to live in my apartment, and I don't want to be with you. She's taken everything.

    • Walter: You know what I need after a day like today? Peter: For most people, it would be a drink, so I'm guessing... Walter: Strawberry milkshake... Peter: I can do that... Walter: With extra whipped cream. Peter: Don't push it.
