- Guest actor Wil Wheaton: "Walter has this dangerous volatility to him, that is a result of the voices in his head. Walter uses drugs and alcohol to quiet those voices in his head . . . but it's not working as well as he hoped it would. In fact, it's kinda making it worse." (February 19, 2005 - CSI Files)
