★ ALL THE FAB LADIES ★ Skyler White (Breaking Bad)
I need support. Me! The almost 40-year old pregnant woman with the surprise baby on the way and the husband with lung cancer who disappears for hours on end and I don’t know where he goes and he barely even speaks to me anymore with the moody son who does the same thing and the overdrawn checking account and the lukewarm water heater that leaks rusty looking crap and, and is rotting out the floor of the utility closet and we can’t even afford to fix it but OHH, I see, now I am supposed to go ‘Hank, please what can I possibly do to further benefit my spoiled, kleptomaniac, bitch sister who somehow always manages to be the center of attention, cause God knows, she is the one with the really important problems.
People are griping about Skyler White being too much of a killjoy to her meth-cooking, murdering husband? She’s telling him not to be a murderer and a guy who cooks drugs for kids. How could you have a problem with that? - Vince Gilligan

Firstly the shot is used to start [Ozymandias] in the flashback when Skyler is packing away the clown she sold.
The shot itself holds so much meaning because of the phone placed right next to the knives. It shows how much different Skyler is and how strong she’s become. Instead of calling for help (reaching for the phone) she reaches for a knife to defend herself and her family from the monster Walt has become.
Interestingly enough, the knife she grabs is the same knife Walt puts away in Season 2, Episode 1 “Seven Thirty-Seven”. [x]
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!” We’re back at it? Fine. But the kids stay away, and that’s that.
