Yes, we know that Breaking Bad is long gone, but we got a little nostalgic around Christmas. So, here are ten memorable quotes from Breaking Bad, for those who need a reminder about how great this TV show was.
1. Mister Walter loves Skylar
“Look, Skyler, I just haven’t quite been myself lately. I haven’t been myself lately, but I love you. Nothing about that has changed, and nothing ever will. So right now, what I need is for you to climb down out of my ass. Can you do that? Will you do that for me, honey? Will you please, just once, get off my ass. You know, I’d appreciate it. I really would”. – Walter White
2. What makes a plan?
“Sitting around, smoking marijuana, eating Cheetos and masturbating do not constitute ‘plans.’” Walter White. From the episode ’4 Days Out’ – season two, episode nine – Walt is attempting to convince Jesse to head into the desert to cook meth for an entire weekend, something Pinkman is against, insisting he has ‘plans’.
3. Do you think you know advertising? Well, you don’t
“I’ve seen better acting in an epileptic whore house” Hank Schrader, on Saul’s commercials (Season 2, Episode 8)
3. You cannot bring White down
“My name is Walter Hartwell White. I live at 308 Negra Arroyo Lane, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87104. This is my confession. If you’re watching this tape, I’m probably dead. Murdered by my brother-in-law, Hank Schrader.” Walter White
4. A man always provides
“When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority, your responsibility. And a man, a man provides. And he does it even when he’s not appreciated or respected or even loved. He simply bears up and he does it. Because he’s a man.” – Gus Fring
5. For what time I have left, I want to live in my own house
“Skyler you’ve read the statistics sheet, these doctors talking about surviving, one year, two years, like it’s the only thing that matters. But what good is it to survive if I’m too sick to work, to enjoy a meal, to make love. For what time I have left, I want to live in my own house, I want to sleep in my own bed. I don’t want to choke down 40 or 50 pills every single day, and lose my hair, lie around, too tired to get up, and so nauseated that I can’t even move my head. You cleaning up after me. Me… me some um… some dead man, some artificially alive, just marking time… no. And that’s how you would remember me. That’s the worst part. So… that is my thought process Skyler… I’m sorry, it’s just I choose not to do it” Walter White
6. Appreciate when you have something good going on
“We had a good thing, you stupid son of a bitch! We had Fring, we had a lab, we had everything we needed and it all ran like clockwork! You could have shut your mouth, cooked, and made as much money as you ever needed. It was perfect! But no! You just had to blow it up! You, and your pride and your ego! You just had to be the man! If you’d known your place, we’d all be fine right now!” Mike Ehrmantraut
7. Involve people in your lie
“Let me just get this straight. Elliott and I offered to pay for your treatment, no strings attached – an offer which still stands by the way – and you turn us down out of pride, whatever. And then you tell your wife that in face we are paying for your treatment. Without our knowledge, against our will, you involve us in your lie. And you sit here and tell me that that is none of my business?” Gretchen Schwartz
8. I love hot dogs
“Did you know that there’s an acceptable level of rat turds that can go into candy bars? It’s the government, jack. Even government doesn’t care that much about quality. You know what is okay to put in hot dogs? Huh? Pig lips and ass**holes. But I say, hey, have at it bitches ’cause I love hot dogs”. Jesse Pinkman
9. I am the one who knocks
“Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? So you know how much I make a year? Even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. Do you know what would happen if I stopped going in to work? A business big enough to be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly-up, disappears, it ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don’t know who you’re talking to so let me clue you in. I am not in danger Skyler, I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think about me? No, I am the one who knocks” Walter White
10. Meet Jesse James
“Just because you shot Jesse James, don’t make you Jesse James” Mike Ehrmantraut
