I s-…okay, yes, I said that. I did. But it was in the heat of the moment, I was trying to win an argument, alright?
This seems like a throwaway line, but it is actually a huge moment in the Walt/Jesse relationship. You can see Jesse has a look on his face after hearing this, like “If he just said that to win an argument, how many other things that he’s told me were to win an argument too?”. Throughout the series Walt has viewed Jesse as inferior, and has twisted him in order to achieve what he wants (e.g. Lily of the Valley), but now Jesse is starting to see through Walt’s lies.
