  • Walter Week Three.

    The Walter episodes continue to be the most gripping and emotional episodes of this second season. The chemistry between Paul and Walter truly is a sight to see as they are polar opposites; two guys from different worlds. Walter is about money and power while Paul is about communication and understanding.

    I really like how slowly this story is progressing as well. Normally that would not be a good thing, but you can feel the tension building up and you can tell this is going to get even more intense as the weeks go on.

    Both Gabriel Byrne and John Mahoney will have a case at the Emmys as well after this arc.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Walter: I hate this stuff. Connie's always telling me I should drink more of it. So does my doctor, but I don't have time for it.
      Paul: You don't have time to drink water?
      Walter: Sometimes no, I don't.

    • Walter: I put my arms around her. I said, 'Natalie, we're going home.' And then... she told me to go fuck myself.
      Paul: She'd never said anything like that to you before?
      Walter: She broke my heart, Paul. She broke my heart.

    • Paul: (talking to Walter about Natalie) You've given her everything. And that's... That's something that's hard for other parents to do but... not for you. Do you think it's possible that... what's hard for you is... just... letting her be? Letting her go?

    • Paul: (to Walter) Maybe Natalie is trying to do something that you've never allowed yourself to do: to separate from her parents. For you to stay connected means to never... stray.

    • (talking about Natalie)
      Paul: You did raise her with the freedom to think for herself, to question authority figures, to confront the world of adults. You gave her an incredible gift. Now she wants to use it.
      Walter: By telling me to go fuck myself?
      Paul: That's what you heard.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Walter: Après moi, le déluge.
      Paul: After you, the flood?

      The phrase "Après moi, le déluge" ("After me, the flood") is often attributed to being uttered by Louis XV, King of France from 1715 to 1774, when the monarchy rule was coming to an end.
