walt and skyler (2) shit happens


WALTER
: You need to bring the kids back, Skyler. This is where they .
SKYLER: No. I won't have my children living in a house where dealing drugs and hurting people is off as "shit happens." We're back at it? Fine. But the kids stay away, and that's .
WALTER: That's what? You let them have a sleepover at their aunt and uncle's, they spend a day or two, Junior stays up late watching movies, and then what happens?
SKYLER: Whatever happens, they're not coming back. They're better off over there. I swear to God, I won't them back here.
WALTER: What are you gonna do to stop it?
SKYLER: Whatever it takes. Everything in my .
WALTER: Like what? I mean, specifically. What is your next move?
SKYLER: I might go and hurt myself. Make it clear that we need more time. Let my sister see we're still struggling.
WALTER: Then I'll have you . Put you in a mental hospital while I take care of the kids myself. Is that what you want?
SKYLER: So then maybe I show up with bruises on my neck, give myself a eye, say that you beat me when you found out I was having an affair.
WALTER: You want to involve your boss? Oh, well, that'll be fun, bringing the police up to on all of that. But not as much fun as telling your 16-year-old son that his father is a wife-beater. Not very well thought-out . What else you got?
SKYLER: How about I send Junior away to school?
WALTER: Oh. How would that conversation ? "So, honey, I know you've only got one year left in high school, but I would love it so much if you'd just everything, leave all your friends behind, and go to Arizona."
SKYLER: Well, what are you gonna do closing the curtains and changing the locks? I'm not hearing a solution to our problem.
WALTER: Well, neither am I. None of what you suggested will work. Not as a long-term strategy .
SKYLER: Well, this is the best I could come up with, okay?
WALTER: I'm sorry, but you're gonna have to better than that.
SKYLER: No, you're right. It's a bad plan. I wish I had some of your magic, Walt. But I don't. I'm a coward. I can't stop your money. I can't even keep you out of this house. All I can do is wait and count every minute that the kids are away from you as a victory. That's it. That's the only good option. Hold on, my time, and wait.
WALTER: Wait for what? What is it that you're waiting for?
SKYLER: For the cancer to come back.
