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/Walt exchange –
Jesse and Walt do not have an exchange this episode, though they are seen together in the lab.
Favourite scenes –
You just left recorded proof of our intention to buy a carwash. Hmm, paranoid much Walt?
It is a carwash, not a brothel, says Skyler.
Jesse and Andrea. And I’m so sad for Brock, because he clearly misses Jesse – and vice versa.
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. 😦
Skyler VS Mr Eyebrows himself, Bogdan.
Mike VS Walt – Mike wins, this is not surprising to us.

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.
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.
