Saul, Mike threatened me. He threatened Jesse. He probably threatened someone before breakfast this morning. It’s what he does.
whatever it is, i’m afraid to know
I’m in it now. I’m compromised. But I won’t, I will not have my children living in a house where dealing drugs, and hurting people, and killing people is shrugged off as ‘shit happens.’

JONATHAN BANKS: And why do you think he has that rage inside of him?
ODENKIRK: Because he’s a normal guy.
BANKS: He’s a normal guy who just happens to deal in crystal meth and kill people. But he’s a normal guy.
BANKS: I don’t think he loves Jesse at all. You’re talking about Walt?
PAUL: You don’t think Walt cares for Jesse?
BANKS: I don’t think Walt cares for anybody.
ODENKIRK: I think he looks to Jesse as a son.
PAUL: He has Jesse in the palm of his hand and he knows how to control him.
BANKS: To control him. That’s hardly love.
Interviewer: Do you think Walt’s manipulation of people is the way he shows his love?
BANKS: I love the way you’ve phrased that question. Is his manipulation, his way of showing love? Did I misquote you? His manipulation shows his love? What kind of broken ass home did you come from?
BANKS: I will tell you this – because I’m old enough to be everybody’s father here. Everybody. And I know specifically of parents who would go – you would be hit by a car, lying on the side of the road and they would come over and go ‘Oh my god. Son, are you okay?’ And in the same breath – ‘Could somebody take care of this. I gotta go.’ It ain’t love. They may tell themselves it’s love. But it ain’t love.
Interviewer: So does Walt love anybody then?
PAUL: He definitely loves himself.
BANKS: A sociopath feels no guilt in their actions and what they do.
ODENKIRK: But do you think he’s becoming a sociopath?
BANKS: No – I think he’s been a sociopath since the time in the gym when he justifies the airplane crash – with ‘Well there have been worse crashes. More people have died.’ That is the classic sociopath.
