Walt begins his chemotherapy and returns to cooking crystal meth with Jesse. Soon Jesse is selling their superior product on the street but he only manages to sell an ounce making each of them only $1300. Walt pushes him to be more imaginative and find a distributor to whom they can sell in bulk. Against his better judgment, Jesse approaches Krazy 8's replacement as a drug wholesaler, a big time operator named Tuco who doesn't quite do business the way he had expected. It's left to Walt to sort it all out, telling Tuco his name is Heisenberg. Walt's having a hard time dealing with his chemo and is frequently ill. DEA agent Hank traces the gas mask they found in the desert to Walt's high school and makes an arrest. Written by garykmcd

The scene in which Walter stands up in the bathroom stall after vomiting was actually taken from a deleted scene in which Walter masturbates after a doctor's visit. See more »


Walt: Last time I checked, there was 16 ounces to a pound. What'd you do with the rest, smoke it?
Jesse Pinkman: Yo I been out there all night slangin' crystal. You think it's cake movin' a pound of meth, one teenth at a time?
Walt: So why you selling it in such small quantities? Why don't you just sell the whole pound at once?
Jesse Pinkman: To who? What do I look like? Scarface?
Walt: This is unacceptable. I am breaking the law here. This return is too little for the risk. I thought you'd be ready for another pound today.

Absolutely Perfect!
5 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you thought you witnessed the best Breaking Bad episode yet, then you have witnessed wrong. This particular episode is the strongest one by far. It's powerful, a little gut-wrenching, and just a pleasure to watch. It helps that Walt has one of his signature badass moments that have come to define him.

This episode, "Crazy Handful of Nothing'" has Walt and Jesse resuming their meth business. They have a new distributor named Tuco who shows, not in a nice way, why he is an effective businessman.

Overall, this is the most powerful episode yet in this drama series. There will be some moments when it's hard to keep your eyes on the screen. Walt is becoming my favorite TV character, especially when he shows in this episode how he proves he is not the guy to mess around with. I rate this episode 10/10.
