Walter's Lab - Sleep Deprived

OLIVIA: (enters the lab) Walter? Astrid? Walter? Walter? Walter. (finds the unresponsive doctor) What the hell are you doing?

WALTER: (wakes) Sleeping. One syringe has sodium thiopental --

OLIVIA: Well, that sounds...

WALTER: ...It's a barbiturate, yes.

OLIVIA: I was going to say dangerous.

WALTER: Nonsense. And I have the adrenaline to wake me up.

I wonder if "sleep disorder" means the same thing as "exhaustion"?

Fast for 16 hours and then eat to reset your body clock to think that it is breakfast time. Works wonders.
