We bring you 11 effective Breaking Bad dialogues that literally scream attitude and panache like nothing else.
“I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen, 50-years I spent like that. Finding myself awake at three in the morning. But you know what? Ever since my diagnosis, I sleep just fine. What I came to realize is that fear, that’s the worst of it. That’s the real enemy. So, get up, get out in the real world and you kick that bastard as hard you can right in the teeth.”
– Walter White
This is not just a quote, its life. It has inspired millions to fight against any given issue, bravely.
“Stay out of my territory.”
This one is the real badass. We really found Walter White gradually and steadily falling in to the business and making it his own. His expressions and intent staring had started sending chills down our spine.
Walter White: “Wait for what? What are you waiting for?”
Skyler: “The cancer to come back.”
This one stunned all of us. Usually, nobody manages to get the better of White, but here Skyler managed to do that. Her hate, disgust, fear and disapproval of her husband’s work is made very clear.
Walter: “It’s over. We’re safe.
Skyler: What happened?
Walter: I won.”
This is probably the most defining moment in the series. After all the planning and plotting when Walt finally manages to kill Gus, we know there is no stopping him.
One word, but it changed everything in the series. On one hand White proved his loyalty to Pinkman, but annoyed Gus beyond words. Nothing was the same anymore after this.
“I am the one who knocks.”
In his desperation to explain to his wife what he is made of and how famous he has become, he uses these words. While he took pride in it, Skyler came to the realisation that her husband is much more than only a meth cook.
“Just because you shot Jesse James, don’t make you Jesse James.”
When the meth cook complains and questions the functionality of the new operation, Mike puts Walt in his place.
“I’m not in the meth business. I’m in the empire business.”
The fact that he sold his shares of Grey enterprises which could be worth millions, never left him. A sum like $5 million seemed like peanuts to White.
“Say my name”
Nothing can get cooler than this. The confidence and audacity that he projects in this statement is infectious.
“Say you want this.”
This is one of the best moments in the series. While we know Walt’s end, we are hopeful that Pinkman will survive and do anything to stay away from violence.
“Someone has to protect this family from the man who protects this family.”
The fear is extremely audible in Skyler’s tone. But we also hear her conviction to fight her own husband for the sake of her children.
