Fridge Brilliance

  • Why the stash of money looks like it's in bags that you see in robbery movies? Because there was so much gold to exchange they needed to carry the money back some how.

  • Watching this film for the umpteenth time, a particular line at the end hit me — Walter's Mom saying "I haven't got a choice" about accompanying her abusive boyfriend back to Las Vegas.
