At Massive Dynamic Walter and Kevin the security guard share a bong and Walter regales his new friend with stories of how he ended up in bed with Yoko Ono during the 70s. Walter admits that he hasn’t accomplished much as head of Massive Dynamic, and Kevin assures him that he’s much cooler than William Bell ever was. As they watch the security monitors, Walter comments on the patterns of people moving through the hallways, but notices one old-fashioned wooden door that no one enters. Kevin explains that it’s the door to Bell’s old office...

Episode Quotes
Walter: It was Belly's intellect that made the company great. All I've managed to do with its vast resources is to create a new flavor of cupcake frosting. Bacon-berry.

Peter: What exactly am I looking for here, Walter?
Walter: Anything related to gravity. I remember seeing a file on floaters in there. It would have been from a period when Belly was in search of the perfect bowel movement.
Astrid: Charming.
Walter: Everybody poops, dear.

Peter: What's up?
Walter: Nothing. When your mother and I were courting, we used to take long walks in the park. But I can see for your generation that a drive to a warehouse would be just as enchanting.

Nina: Walter, it was never your intellect that made you exceptional. You're brilliant, of course, but it was your imagination, your boundless creativity. Yes, you're not quite whole, Walter, but the best parts of you remain, so focus on that.
Walter: What if I fail?
Nina: You won't fail, Walter.
Walter: How can you be so sure?
Nina: Because you can't.

Olivia: So Walter, whereabouts in Boston would he be able to acquire lutetium?
Walter: It's mainly found in meteorites. Do you think the perpetrator's from outer space?
Olivia: I'm probably not.
