Cut to Saul and Mike listening to the recording of the aftermath of Skyler's revelation to Walt that she F'ed T. I love that this is how we get to witness that inevitable screaming match play out. Wonderfully inventive. Particularly because the argument is pretty much the screaming match we expected. Saul sits with a half-amused look on his face as Walt rails at her for her pathetic taste in adultery-bait, while Skyler tests her "if you don't like it, then leave" hypothesis, which gets her predictably nowhere. At one point, a terrible, metallic crunching sound blares, and Saul is momentarily repulsed. "Garbage disposal," Mike says, dispassionately. "Screw 'em all," Walt yells, "I'm not going anywhere!" "Suit yourself," Skyler snipes and slams the door behind her on the way out of the room. "Is this a good or a bad thing?" Saul asks. Mike points to the recorder in time for Walt to say, to himself, "I'll suit myself to his face!" "It's a bad thing," Saul concludes. Yeah, and not just because of that terribly weak burn.
Cut to Walter angrily storming the gates at Beneke. Or storming the reception desk anyway. In his blue plaid Oxford shirt and khakis, he cuts a menacing profile, that's for sure. The receptionist -- who looks birdlike, even for a receptionist -- says Ted's on a conference call. The universal excuse for cowardly execs everywhere. Walt sees right through it. He says he'll wait. Even if it's a while. Walt fixes his eyes on a darkened office and soon sees Ted peek out from the blinds. Can that possibly be Ted's office? Right there next to reception? Either Beneke's layout is as shoddily put together as its books or Ted got caught in a conference room when Walt rolled up and panicked. Anyway, Walt starts hollering for Ted to come out. Clearly Walt only wants to have a calm, rational conversation! Ted lifts the blinds and tells Walt he's a bit busy right now. Oh, rookie mistake, Beneke. Never acknowledge. Walt then finds a giant potted plant in the lobby and makes to throw it through Ted's office window. Only this plant is effing huge, and the pot looks like it's made of stone, and the whole thing weighs a ton. Still, he drags it towards his intended target, as Skyler rushes into the lobby and whisper-yells at Walt to stop it. "What are you doing?!" she hisses. Walt, crouched over the plant: "I'm talking with Ted!" Oh, boy. Walt finally lifts the plant to about knee-height, swings it for momentum, and then tosses it at the glass. It bounces right off and cracks on the ground at Walt's feet. Which is about when the security guards arrive and escort Walt to the parking lot, his marriage's honor most definitely not avenged.
