Dr. Walter Bishop
Trivia: At the train station you can see a spiral shaped symbol on one of the signs. This is a clue toward the next episode "The Arrival."
Trivia: The Observer can be seen on the train as Agent Dunham is walking through it.
When Walter prepares to drill in Roy's head, he inserts the drill in the hole left from the center on the head gear. When he is interrupted, by a knock on the door, the drill is in the center hole.
Olivia: (John) used me, Charlie. And he told me he loved me.
Charlie: I wasn't going to tell you this, but he said he loved me too.
Peter: You brought your own sweetener?
Walter: Don't be ridiculous. My medication.
Peter: You're not on any medication, Walter.
Walter: Of course I am. I've been making it myself in the lab.
Peter: Oh, I wish you were joking.
Walter: There was something important… Oh! I've decided on the pancakes. Blueberry.
Peter: That's great, Walter. Did somebody call me on the phone?
Walter: Oh! That's what was important. Something about a bus.
Broyles: Forgive me, Dr. Bishop. I like to think I have an open mind. but I have a hard time accepting that that man is hearing another person's thoughts.
Walter: Oh yes, so do I. Which is why I would like to prove it.
Peter: And how would you do that?
Walter: Am I required to keep him alive?
Olivia: That would probably be best.
Walter: If my hypothesis is correct, he is picking up the thoughts of another human being, they will leave a distinct signature
Peter: And you think we'll be able to identify whose thoughts they are?
Walter: That's preposterous. But I may be able to intercept them.
Peter: What's happening?
Walter: No idea. But I'm extremely interested to find out.
Peter: He was a sophomore volunteering for psych experiments. Did you ever even bother to explain to him what you were doing?
Walter: Well, it wouldn't have been a very secret experiment if I had!
Astrid: Wait, you want to rewire his brain?
Walter: Not without his permission. It would be a minor surgery.
Peter: Minor brain surgery. Emphasis not on the minor.
Walter: Are you taking any medications, prescribed or illicit? You can be truthful, I won't judge. In fact, if the answer is "no," I may encourage some drug use.
Peter: When I was nine years old I think I wanted to be a brontosaurus.
Peter: You know, they say the psych profiles of cops and criminals are pretty much identical. Ever considered a life of crime?
Olivia: No dental.
Walter: How was the old house? How was Rufus?
Peter: Well, the house is just like we left it, but we put Rufus to sleep almost 20 years ago, Walter.
Walter: Oh. That's terrible news.
Roy: What the hell was that?
Walter: Oh, that was your body's normal muscle response. It's perfectly natural. You may also experience an involuntary bowel movement.
Walter: Oh my god!
Roy: What's wrong?
Walter: I believe with proper demodulation, you could receive satellite television for free.
Peter: Okay, fun time's over!
Olivia: How are you feeling?
Roy: My head hurts a little, but, um, Dr. Bishop gave me something for the pain.
Walter: Vicodin. That's it, I promise.
