Walt is convinced that his medical condition is deteriorating. He continues to have coughing fits and is now coughing up blood. After his attorney and new business partner crunches the numbers, he realizes that there isn't much money left for his family. He and Jesse set off for the desert for a marathon cooking session over an extended weekend. Jesse just continues to put his foot in it, this time by leaving the keys in the ignition and inadvertently draining the battery. They find themselves in the middle of the desert, cold and without much water. Walt's knowledge of chemistry again saves the day. Written by

In "Down" and "Breakage", we learn that Jesse's dealers were selling meth for $2500/ounce, of which Walt and Jesse kept $2000, split evenly between them. Then in "Negro y Azul", Walt tells Jesse to raise the prices. Here in "Four Days Out", when Walt asks Jesse what they're selling meth for these days, Jesse says $40,000/pound, i.e. $2500/ounce. Walt looks surprised that it's so high, to which Jesse replies, "Hey, you said raise the prices." But that figure (which from Walt saying, "minus distribution charges" while performing his calculations we know is the street price) and the math on each of them making $672,000 for 42 pounds of meth shows that the street price is still $2500/ounce and that he and Jesse still keep $2000 of that - exactly the pricing they started with.
