To be fair, Breaking Bad has provided quite a few 'most satisfying lines', but if it were a contest...
"Let's make sure history never forgets...the name...Enterprise."
Actually, given the ending to Breaking Bad and the emphasis on legacy, that seems like quite an appropriate competitor.

Indeed, that line he utters in the finale that was previously mentioned in a spoiler.
Great ending, just great.

I'd say the show is mostly neutral, as there are plenty of scenes that detail the motives of the terrorist group involved while yet others portray several Americans as the fuckheads they are.

Have to say really good ending to Breaking Bad probably the most satisfying conclusion to a series I think there has been and that's probably the hardest thing to actually do. The only thing I have to say it was a might bit predictable nothing was truly surprising I kind of knew everything that was going to happen, but there is something about being satisfied about that. Another thing, this is a show I truly wanted an epilogue about, I really wanted to know what happened to Jess I really really cared about him by the end of it in fact season 4 kind of turned my viewpoint to Jesse a lot. [spoilers]So glad to see his smiling face near the end, and the beginning with the box was a nice call back to his AA speech[/spoilers]
A few thoughts on the episode.
Kind of funny and creepy the amounts of time Walter just walked into people's conversations and scared the fuck out of them and walked out, especially Gretchen as soon as he closed the doors i was expecting a bloodbath from him...truly creepy and terrifying.
Kind of a bit disappointed that the Ricin was used on Lydia of all people, I mean it was a Chekhov gun ever since season 2 wasn't it? Was hoping he'd use it on someone a bit more important/surprising at some point. But it was still ok.
Didn't get much closure to Skyler or Marie's characters, I know why you can't really close everything but something might have been nice!
Anyway I'm going to miss this tense, humorous, emotional and kick ass show.

All this talk about Breaking Bad made me go Netflix the first two episodes and oh dear the main character looks an awful lot like my ex-girlfriend's dad, both in looks and some of his mannerisms - it's sort of hilariously disturbing. Seems like a good show though!

Walt's pleas to Lydia/Todd to "just have a couple of minutes of your time" mirrored his pleas to Gus in earlier seasons.
Also what do people think
happens to Jesse now? I envisage him heading to Alaska (the police after all are going to find the tape telling the whole story), and becoming a carpenter, forever trying to build that perfect box and hopefully finding some peace while he does so.

Haven't watched Breaking Bad at all, but I am going to, eventually. You can be jealous now.

re: Breaking Bad, I really was hoping that it would be bleaker.

I think the Nazis will have destroyed the tape. Why would they have kept it? And Jams, I've seen quite a lot of people say that the ending was happy, but considering what's happened before, it's very bleak! Skyler is left widowed and tainted by Walts memory, Walt Jr has no father, Marie is a widow having lost Hank almost entirely because of Walts actions. And Gretchen and Elliot who seem like reasonably decent people are left living in fear of death. Don't forget Brock growing up without Andrea.
Quite a lot of bleak things in my opinion.

Not really a BB spoiler but I'll mask it anyway in case.
Anyone wondering about the significance of Walt leaving this watch on top the payphone? It gave me pause but I assumed it would become apparent later in the episode. In fact it was just a continuity thing because he wasn't wearing his watch in the later scenes. Oh, television!Open-faced sandwiches are upon you whether you would risk it or not.

I'm guessing he means bleaker for Walt (OK sure he died, but it happened on more or less his terms) which I kind of agree with to an extent. My initial feelings were similar. I think the ending was great though, it was satisfying and I despite a nagging feeling it could have been better I'm not sure I can think of a way to make it so - though it probably says a bit about my mindset that if they ditched the flashforwards with the gun/ricin I'd probably have been happy with Ozymandias as an ending.

I think that's the way it has to end for Walt really. He was happy when he died, which is OK for him, definitely, but I think it shows truly and utterly what he is. He's lost everyone he's loved, but he's happy because he will be remembered as a legend. His family is broken, but his ego is in tact. In his earlier speech to Skyler he only reinforced that. I think the only thing I might consider disappointing is that it wasn't totally shocking. I think it was reasonably easy to piece together what was going to happen (though the Gretchen/Elliot stuff caught me off guard).

Well a lot of the time Breaking Bad hasn't been so much surprising in the path forward, more what happens on that path. It's also good story-telling that perhaps the ending wasn't totally surprising given a lot of people were able to piece together what had happened previously to work out what would make the most sense. Despite that, it still delivered on being interesting and suspenseful.
