Quotes

Walter White, Jr.: You're crazy! My car almost has 500 horsepower. It would totally smoke...
Walter White: Horsepower isn't everything. Don't you know that? You have to factor in drag and torque and suspension and weight of the car. And listen, one more factor that you're not thinking about... The experience of the driver. And I totally got you there. I got you there.
Walter White, Jr.: Please. Please. You drive... You drive like a geezer.
Walter White: Oh, I... Really? I drive like a gee... Tell me, can a geezer do donuts? I don't think so.
Walter White, Jr.: Bullshit you ever...

Worst 4 episodes of the series
13 August 2012 | by (Peanut Butter Island) – See all my reviews

How on earth can any human think that this episode, or season, deserves an 8. Walt buys junior a new car and Skyler isn't happy...hhhhmmm. where have i seen this... All of a sudden Skyler is scared of Walt when he was in much greater danger last season and she knew about it and was a DAB ???? Yea OK.. well hey writers we don't need 4 episodes with zero suspense for you to change her character and to show that Mike had connections with bozos in jail. I mean "Breaking Bacon" is boring. Oh hey Skyler and Walt are lying to Hank and his bozo wife.. man thats new... I've never been more disappointed in a show.

Next thing you know Dexter is going to marry Deb and ruin my life, irreparably
