  • Quotes

    • Olivia: So, what was so important?
      Walter: Hmmm? Important? Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. And I proved it in 1973. Blueberry pancakes. A Bishop family specialty, best eaten while it's still warm.
      Olivia: Walter, you didn't have to do this.
      Peter: That's exactly what I told him.

    • Peter: I know that you struggle with trust issues. That you have a difficult time letting people in.
      Olivia: Well, I... I'm struggling because the reasons are real. I'm not making them up.
      Peter: I know. I never wanted to be one of the reasons. And I still think about her, because I spent so long imagining going down that path with you. Imagining what it would be like to wake up in a bed next to you. To sit around, just the two of us having a cup of coffee, reading the paper. And then finally, I had it. I've seen what the two of us together looks like. And it's beautiful.
      Olivia: Peter, she's the one that took it away from us, not me.
      Peter: And now? Who's the one stopping us now?

    • Peter: Hey, Cupid!
      Walter: Did my plan work?
      Peter: Well, if your plan was to make things even more awkward and painful between Olivia and I, yeah, worked like a charm.
      Walter: Perhaps I should have made a frittata.

    • Peter: Walter, we keep 'em in the back.
      Walter: Then why are you all sitting around?
      Astrid: I'll go get it.
      Peter: You know, a thank-you wouldn't kill you.
      Walter: Oh, I'm sorry if at this moment, when the universe is collapsing, I forgot the magic word.

    • Peter: So you're afraid? Afraid of what?
      Olivia: That you were right, that this isn't just about her. It was, but I think that this is me. I think that I'm stopping this. Maybe I'm just incapable of being vulnerable...
      Peter: Olivia, come on! You know that that's not true!
      Olivia: It must be! I'm terrified that I can't fix this, that... that this is just who I am.

    • Olivia: Do you really think that this is the end of the world as we know it?
      Peter: If it is, there's no reason to wait outside in the cold for it. There's a bar right across the street.
      Olivia: Wait, you think that now's the time to be throwing back shots?
      Peter: Who said anything about donning shots? Maybe they got fries.
      Olivia: Now you're talking.

    • Peter: Did I ever tell you about the time Walter did his rendition of Never, Never Going to Give You Up?
      Olivia: No, but I actually love Barry White.
      Peter: He was only wearing his socks at the time. Doing the Hustle, there was a lot going on.

    • Broyles: I need to run this up to channels.
      Peter: Not exactly how you imagined meeting the President, huh?
      Broyles: I already know him. He doesn't like me, I beat him at golf.
