“The reason I really liked this scene is because Bryan and I had a nice talk about my grandfather and about his family as well. My grandfather died at the time from emphysema and we talked about using some of that emotion for the scene. It was a real bonding moment for Bryan and me.”

“I love this confrontational scene with Walt and Walt Jr. because it seems to bring together all of the pain they both have suffered. Walter Jr. is heartbroken that his father is telling him to leave. After so much estrangement this seems like the most unfair and cruel cut of all. It was a great scene to play, and sad as well.”
