Vince: I think the show would be interesting, to start of with a really nice guy, likable guy, and bit by bit, episode by episode becomes less likable, less— and that’s really not exactly what happened. Because we were— Bryan playing, and oddly enough, ironically enough, not worrying at any point if the wrong— about being likable. Now, people come up to me and say, “Oh, I tell you, I’m not really— that thing you did last week? I’m having a really hard time liking him, still. I’m having a hard time rooting for him.”  But they would say that and then they would be like, “Aw, I can’t stay mad— I can’t question it!”

[both laughing] Bryan: I can’t stay mad at you! Come here, you big drug dealer!

Vince: How do you think we broke rules this year?
Bryan: Oh, we were bad. We were so bad.

Ten Things on Vince Gilligan’s Mind As He Writes the Final Episodes of Breaking Bad 
An interview by Denise Martin for Vulture.com

“Without giving anything away (would anyone really want that?), he took some time to download ten things on his mind as he heads into the homestretch:”

  1. The evolution of Walt’s fate.
  2. How Casablanca got it exactly right.
  3. His time on The X Files.
  4. Going back to the pilot.
  5. Henry Mancini.
  6. Bringing Walt to justice — or not.
  7. One final shout-out to The Godfather.
  8. Giving every character their due.
  9. Hank’s triumph.
  10. Finality.

So many quotes in this piece, I want to quote the whole thing. Just go read the full interview. It’s worth your time. You might also want to read Dustin Rowles’ dissection of the interview.
