  • Quotes

    • Newton: You're gonna have a very difficult time without me, you know?
      Bolivia: Well, there are plenty of machines here. I can befriend a vacuum cleaner.

    • Peter: With a basement lab in Harvard, Walter was able to open a wormhole into another dimension that essentially shredded all the laws of science. I can't wait to see what he's capable of doing with a multibillion-dollar corporation.

    • Walter: So beautiful, it is absolutely breathtaking. Somewhere between pudding and foie gras. And why do I bring this up, you with the red hair?
      Scientist: It's black.
      Walter: I see red. Answer the question.
      Scientist: I'm really not sure why we're talking about brain physiology.
      Walter: Dear God. How can you be so limited? When William Bell created this company, he knew one thing to be true. Brain and the mind are capable of so much. Don't you see that? That the brain is consciousness, hmm? The mind is God! There are no limits. Except for those that we impose on ourselves. Open your eyes. Open, open. Inspiration is everywhere. Do you know how lucky you are to play in this sandbox? My heart is racing. God! (starts removing pants) Is anyone else hot in here?

    • Walter: Oh, in the right light, your hair looks like strands of lemon diamonds.
      Peter: He self-medicated this morning.
      Walter: Don't worry. I do some of my finest work self-medicated.

    • Walter: Did you know, in the 19th century, hatmakers used mercury to flatten the fur on hat brims? Sadly, the mercury caused significant brain damage. Hence, where Lewis Carroll got the term "Mad Hatter."
      Peter: Thank you, Walter. That will be very helpful the next time I'm on Jeopardy.

    • Ray Duffy: You know... sometimes... monsters aren't all that bad. Sometimes... if you get to spend some time with them, they can be very surprising. They can be, um, incredibly sweet and pure and capable of great, great love. And then, one of them might actually become your very, very best friend.
      Kris Duffy: But you're my best friend.
      Ray Duffy: Yeah, that's right.
