Peter Bishop grew up as the neglected son of a mad scientist.
After his dad's mental institutionalization, Peter aimed to make himself as different from his father as he could. He's a college drop-out that passed for several months as a chemistry professor, along with an intuitive mathematician with a gambling problem.
Peter is now a civilian consultant for the FBI.
Olivia: What's she like? The other Olivia? I'm just curious.
Peter: She's a, she's driven. She's very, very stubborn. She doesn't like to lose. She sees the best in people, even when they don't see it themselves. When she first found me, I was in Baghdad trying to run a scam on these two Iranian businessmen...
Olivia: I didn't see you as the scamming type.
Peter: That's what made me so good at it. Anyway, it was all supposed to be temporary. She told me I just had to babysit Walter while he was working on a case for the FBI and then I could leave and go back to my own life. Despite, of course, how gorgeous she is.
Olivia: You've got good taste.
Walter: Two thoughts to come to mind. The first, that this affliction might have been caused by a mutation, changing these lipids to seal any and all orifices. Did they check his anus and penis?
Peter: You think we could get the answer to that question without me in the room.
