Storyline

Walt is suffering from insomnia, worried about the choices he has made and the direction his life has taken. Unaware that Jesse has been skimming a bit of their product, he also worried that the numbers in his formulas don't add up and that they always seem to somewhere between 4 and 8 ounces short of what the batch should have produced. The meticulous Walt is also concerned - to the point of paranoia - when he discovers a housefly in the lab. Worried about contamination, he goes to extreme lengths to kill it. Jesse comes to his rescue in an interesting way. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Walter White: I've been to my oncologist, Jesse. Just last week. I'm still in remission. I'm healthy.
Jesse Pinkman: That's good. Great.
Walter White: No end in sight.
Jesse Pinkman: That's great.
Walter White: No. I missed it. There was some perfect moment that passed me right by, but I had to have enough to leave them. That was the whole point. None of this makes any sense if I didn't have enough. And it had to be before she found out. Skyler. It had to be before that.
Jesse Pinkman: Perfect moment? For what? To drop dead? Are you saying you want to die?
Walter White: I'm saying that I lived...

One of the best.
31 May 2010 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

By far the best episode in season 3. Yeah, they don't appear to do much, but that's hardly a negative. Instead of the usual running and gunning, this episode offers a deeper view into the souls of both of the main characters, a point upon which this show has always been the strongest (remember the interrogation episode?), as opposed to the often weak action and thriller scenes, like the unbelievably unrealistic fight in the parking lot and the two main antagonists involved in that.

So, please more of this kind of character inspection/building and less of the yawn-inducing melodrama. It just saddens me that quite a lot of people seem to count this as the weakest episode. Hopefully the makers don't listen to that kind of criticism too much and turn this into a more actionish and Heroes-kind-of cheapish thrills and surprises show.
