Who said it: "I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!"

Walter attempts to reassure Skyler that his business does not put him or his family in danger -- and ends up scaring the hell out of her instead.

Who said it: "You are not the guy. You’re not capable of being the guy. I had a guy, but now I don’t. You are not the guy."

On a ride along with Mike, Jesse had the temerity to suggest that he could be Mike's "guy," prompting this response.

Who said it: "Darth Vader had responsibilities. He was responsible for the Death Star."

Badger was commiserating with Jesse's disappointment that even outlaws have responsibilities.

Who said it: "I fucked Ted."

This was Skyler's devastating response to Walter's attempts to make their home life normal again in the season three episode "I.F.T." -- a name that is almost certainly related to the quote.

Who said it: "Don't drink and drive. But if you do, call me."

Saul, always on the lookout for new customers, gives this advice to Walt, Jr.

Who said it: "Stay out of my territory."

Who said it: "All I can do is wait. That's it. That's the only good option. Hold on, bide my time, and wait."

When Walt asked her what she was waiting for, Skyler replied, "For the cancer to come back." Ouch.

Who said it: "I'm not in the meth business. I'm in the empire business."

This is how Walter explains to Jesse that he is no longer cooking meth for the money but for his pride.
