Just days after his 50th birthday, chemistry teacher Walter White's life of quiet desperation completely transforms when he's diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. To support his pregnant wife and son, he partners with Jesse, a former student, to turn an old RV into a mobile meth lab. But their first attempt at unloading their product takes a deadly turn when Jesse introduces Walt to his unstable business associates. Written by
Did You Know?
When Walt is showing to Jesse the chemistry supplies he stole from the school, he mentions that he's got an "Erlenmeyer flask". This is an inside-joke reference to The X-Files
(1993) (which featured an episode titled The X-Files: The Erlenmeyer Flask
(1994)). Vince Gilligan
, creator of Breaking Bad, was a writer and producer on several seasons of 'The X-Files'. See more

Skyler, you are the love of my life, I hope you know that. Walter junior, you're my big man. There are... there are going to be some things, things that you'll come to learn about me in the next few days. I just want you to know that, no matter how it may look...
