~ Favourites ~

Favourite Lawson line – “You know, mister, I’ve been providin’ my services for the past thirty-odd years. You’d think in that time I’d learn better than to ask a man his business. Especially not one referred by the lawyer. But I feel the urge to ask you, we strictly talking defense here?”

Favourite Skyler line – “On top of which, I generously added an extra $50,000, so as not to be insulting”

Favourite Mr Eyebrows AKA Bogdan line – “Instead he sends his woman”

Favourite Badger line – “They’re not just zombies: they’re nazi zombies”

Favourite Skinny Pete line – “Zombies are dead man, what does it matter what job they had when they were alive?”

Favourite Tyrus line – “Go home, Walter.”

Favourite Saul line – “Have you suffered injury, shock to the senses, or property damage as a result of airplane debris or god forbid, falling body parts? Then call me, Saul Goodman”

Favourite Mike line – “Do yourself a favour and learn to take yes for an answer.”

Favourite Walt line – “Hell of a last couple of weeks. Makes a man wonder exactly where he stands.”

Favourite Jesse line – “Yo, what’s up with the pie man, it ain’t cut?”

Favourite scenes –

You just left recorded proof of our intention to buy a carwash. Hmm, paranoid much Walt?

Untitled - 33

It is a carwash, not a brothel, says Skyler.

Untitled - 51

Jesse and Andrea. And I’m so sad for Brock, because he clearly misses Jesse – and vice versa.

Untitled - 50

Except it seems like Jesse thinks he is bad news for anyone so it is best to just look after them from a distance.

I love this Marie moment. But I am not loving the person Hank has become just lately. 😦

Snoskred Notes –

A little bit slower pace this episode, which is great for a change after some very highly charged eps. That is not to say there is not a lot going on.. these are people trying to work out what happens now, after the violent murder of Victor.

Untitled - 77

The Jesse scenes are pretty high energy and intense but he does not have a lot to say, he wants to quiet the voices in his head… this ending scene is somewhat heart breaking for the Jesse fans.
