It's all about self acceptance, and I accept who I am. I'm the bad guy...

Look, I like making cherry product. But let's keep it real, alright? We make poison for people who don't care. We probably have the most unpicky customers in the world.

Jesse Pinkman is the Co-Protagonist alongside Walter White of the popular AMC show, Breaking Bad. After White witnesses a drug bust, Pinkman escapes his former life. Once Walt recognizes the running meth cook, he contacts him and strikes a deal- if he helps him, Walt won't turn him in.

Over the course of the show, Pinkman's psyche is tested time and time again through the deaths of two girlfriends with whom he shared an intimate relationship (both of which were direct causes of him, although accidental in one and by someone else's hand in both cases) and his ultimate capture and stifling into slavery as a meth cook. Pinkman shows resentment for life and all those he associates, coming to the point of killing Walter (although he does not, he does threaten his life several times); he fantasizes about a peaceful workshop rather than a trashy meth lab.
