I'm currently re-watching Breaking Bad and just finished season 4. It's funny that I remember this scene as Walt being some kind of hardened badass, but when rewatching it's very obvious that he's just an egomaniac who is way in over his head and spends pretty much the entire rest of the season very much in a constant state of panic about how much danger he is in.
