  • Walter Week Four.

    Wow, I certainly did not expect that twist. I think it was way too early, if ever, to have Walter get fired from his position as CEO. This could lead to a dangerous turn of events for him, and a possible breakdown, but I think everyone on this season is leaning in that direction. Having Walter be arrogant and stubborn allowed for some freshness and originality as opposed to all the other sessions on tap this season.

    While I was upset with the turn of events, this episode was still fun and I am still looking forward to what happens next.moreless

      Walter: Like an old man who stayed too long in the ring.
      Paul: You feel like a... like a boxer taken a beating.
      Walter: I dropped my guard, Paul. I deserve everything I've gotten.

    • Walter: What's gonna happen, Paul? I fall asleep and I don't wake up?

      Walter: No no, I want to wake up. I want to find that the last two months were just a nightmare...

    • Walter: I got fired. What's the big deal? The whole country's getting fried... fired... fired! But all of a sudden I get an orchestrated show of compassion. Teams of people dropping in. It's like an episode of This Is Your Life.

    • Walter: If there's one thing I can't stand, it's people who fool themselves. Lead fake lives. Become fake human beings.

    • (talking about the aftermath of Tommy's death)

      Walter: It was my fault! That's why I had no choice, it was my fault.
