Walter: Walter is based on more of manhood and hard work. He believes in having good wealth to support his family. He struggles to support his family and then tries to discover new and better schemes to secure its economic prosperity. His dream revolves around money and how money solves everything.

And-and I’ll say, all right son- it’s your seventeenth birthday, what is it you’ve decided? Just tell me, what it is you’ve decided? Just tell me what it is you want to be- and you’ll be it it..” These both visual and text evidence provides 'Family Values' because even though Walter is always discussing about money , he wants the best for his son.
