Marie Schrader (née Lambert) is Skyler White's sister and the wife of DEA agent Hank Schrader. Marie is close with her sister, though her tendency to pry invariably irritates Skyler. She speaks of employment as a technician at Kleinman Radiology Center, a medical scanning and x-ray office. She and Hank have no children.
She says she hates her image, which she focuses on her shoes, her "ugly white squeaking around after old ladies shoes" that she says give her support. So she very deftly swipes some new ones from a rude shopping mall, leaving her ugly white squeakers behind.
She is a thief and also ups the price of Hank's rehab nut to Skyler which Skyler accepts without suspicion.
She has never been shown actually at her job in the show. She is shown to have plenty of time for midday shopping in multiple episodes. She is "thinking about a move up to management".
A conversation with Skyler about marijuana leads Marie to believe that Walt Jr. has become a pothead. She instructs Hank to have a conversation with the boy about illicit drug use ("...and the Bag's in the River").
When she first learns that Walt has cancer, Marie promises to help him setup an oncology "dream team" ("Cancer Man"). Surprisingly, however, she sides with Walt when he refuses treatment at first, saying that she honestly thinks it's Walt's decision to make ("Gray Matter").
At Skyler's baby shower, she gives her niece to be a hugely expensive jeweled baby tiara. Skyler attempts to return this gift to the store and is detained and nearly arrested because the thing was stolen ("A No-Rough-Stuff-Type Deal"). Hank is aware that Marie has a tendency to steal shiny things, but he thought it was under control. Tension mounts between the sisters as Marie refuses to accept responsibility for stealing the tiara.
The day after Hank receives a promotion for triumphing over the drug dealer Tuco, Marie expresses dismay that he calls in sick to retreat to his "man cave," the garage, to brew beer. Hank's subsequent anxiety attacks prompt her to enlist Walt's help to get Hank to open up ("Breakage").
During Walt's disappearance, Marie accidentally lets slip that Walt might have a second cell phone. The revelation confirms Skyler's suspicions that her husband leads a secret life ("Grilled").
Marie further unwittingly complicates Walt's life by arranging newspaper and television interviews to publicize the website that Walter Jr. sets up to raise money for Walt's surgery. Marie sits off-camera during the TV interview, silently instructing Walt — who is in obvious discomfort — to smile for the camera while Walter Jr. extols his dad's virtues ("ABQ").
When her husband Hank is hospitalized with paralysis of his lower extremities, Marie is determined that Hank will recover. She provides encouragement and support to Hank, despite his derisive dismissal of her efforts and cheery optimism. Marie remains persistent and eventually finds a way to make Hank realize all hope is not lost and to return to his home while he recovers.
Hank's recovery at home is long and stressful, and he privately vents his frustration by being unkind to Marie. Tempers flare between the two at the slightest annoyance, such as when she refers to his mineral collection as "rocks" ("Thirty-Eight Snub").
Marie's kleptomania once again resurfaces. This time she goes into homes that are for sale, claiming that she's looking to buy, when in reality she's stealing some of the valuables inside. She's caught red-handed when a realtor hears her tell contradicting lies. Luckily for her, the homeowners don't press charges ("Open House").
After Hank and Walt get into an accident while driving to the industrial laundry, Marie forbids Hank from using family to drive him around for his investigation. Marie calls Skyler in a panic after the DEA warns Hank about another assassination attempt ("Crawl Space").
She is handling her shop lifting situation with some help. She is seen at the car wash with Skyler and is there when Skyler has a breakdown, yelling "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" Several times. Marie informs Walt that day and also tells Walt strictly to get better at answering the family sooner (since he hadn't seen her multiple text messages). ("Hazard Pay")
Later on, she is celebrating with Walt and Skyler when Skyler attempts suicide, and later brings up the idea to take the kids in to her and Hank's home. So she and Hank take care of the kids ("Fifty-One"). Several times, she experiences Skyler's visits, and sometimes Skyler comes close to revealing Walt's secret, especially when she cries one time. ("Dead Freight") ("Buyout") Marie is last seen at a "Party" with Walt and her family ("Gliding Over All").
Marie has obsessive-compulsive tendencies and apparently suffers from kleptomania when she's stressed. She seems to strictly watch her weight and is big on eating healthy, low fat foods. It is implied that she is a Wholefoods store fan. She is almost always portrayed wearing purple and many elements of her home decor, including her kitchen appliances and bed linens, are matching shades of purple.
