- How did you know
- Sorry
- About Skyler. About where to find me just now. How did you know
- That's just my meticulousness. Don't bog down in detail, Walt. The lesson here should be...

- Did you bug my house
- Yeah, but I didn't know it was your house, did I You'd moved out. Besides, you basically told me to.

- I told you to
- You strongly hinted that I should. You were worried your wife might say something to the police.

- What No, no, that's not true. When the hell did I say that
- Let's not get lost in the who, what and whens. The point is we did our due diligence and she didn't talk. She kept quiet. She stood by you, Walt...which, if you ask me, is the ironical silver lining here.

- I mean, on the one hand...sure, she snuck off the reservation to get some dirty, damp and deep. On the other hand...

- Off me. You're fired! You're done!
- Good! "Oh, boohoo, I won't cook meth anymore". You're a crybaby. Who needs you I'm unplugging the website, so no more money laundering. How do you like that
- I want those bugs out of my house today. I want them out now! meticulousness
- тщательность, скурпулезность due diligence

- Mr. Fring, I can guarantee you purity of 96%. I'm proud of that figure. It's a hard-earned figure,
96. However, this other product is 99, maybe even a touch beyond that. I'd need an instrument called a gas chromatograph to say for sure, but, uh, that last 3%, it may not sound like a lot, but it is.It's tremendous. It's a tremendous gulf.

- Gale, for our purposes, 96% will do just fine. Please, don't let this trouble you.

- Yeah. It's just... I'd love to know who synthesized it is all.

- A man who wants to work with me. A trained chemist, like yourself. But it won't happen. I don't consider him a professional.

- If he's not, I don't know what that makes me. I'm not trying to talk myself out of a job.

- With this person, there are other considerations.

- His is the best I've ever seen, hands down. And I look at this place that you've built, the money you're investing, sparing no expense.And I know, I know that you want the best. Gulf
- разрыв, пропасть

⬛️ SILVER LINING?
Silver lining
- светлая полоса, положительная сторона. Используют, чтобы подчеркнуть, что даже в самой хреновой ситуации есть кое-что позитивное.Actual example:?No doubt, a silver lining of the lockdown is a great improvement in air quality in big cities all around the world.#etymologyСамо словосочетание silver lining впервые упоминается в британском стихотворении 1634 г. После чего появилась пословица every cloud has a silver lining, аналог нашего "нет худа без добра". И как водится, постепенно сократили до silver lining, всем стало и так понятно, что имеется в виду.

⬛️ HANDS DOWN? Hands down — очень часто встречается в нативной речи, означает 1) "easily", влёгкую, и 2) "unquestionably", "without a doubt", без вопросов, однозначно. This financial crisis, hands down, has all chances to be the worst in the last 100 years.#etymology
⬛️ HANDS DOWN? Hands down
- очень часто встречается в нативной речи, означает 1) "easily", влёгкую, и 2) "unquestionably", "without a doubt", без вопросов, однозначно. This financial crisis, hands down, has all chances to be the worst in the last 100 years.#etymologyИдиома пришла из середины XIX века, со скачек, когда жокей, сильно оторвавшись от соперников мог позволить себе отпустить поводья на финишной прямой. Потом стали применять для всех состязаний, когда кто-то обыгрывал соперников легко, "одной левой". А затем уже и для того чтобы подчеркнуть когда что-то "несомненно" и "без базара".

By the way, speaking about shooting ourself in the foot, I recommend to watch this video (not fast and very clear English) and share your opinion here?❓❓❓What do you think is better now:?1) To quarantine everything and everyone to flatten the death curve, but kill the economy and make all citizens much poorer and force millions of people to loose their jobs, or?2) To allow people to ill and allow 2% of the population to die, but save the world's economy system (which possibly will save more lives, than the quarantine)?
