Trivia

In the end of the episode, Skyler uses a mug for an ashtray. On the mug is printed the number 51, the same as the title of the episode which presumably relates to Walter's 51. birthday. See more »

Goofs

A big deal is made about the GPS tracker on the outside of the barrel being a bad location. In fact, if the tracker was inside, it would be completely shielded from the GPS satellites to calculate its location and the cellular network to report back to the person who placed it there. See more »

Quotes

Walter White, Jr.: I'm in the center lane going about 60, and I had no choice but to just tear butt out there. Just bwaaa! So sweet.

Worst 4 episodes of the series
13 August 2012 | by (Peanut Butter Island) – See all my reviews

How on earth can any human think that this episode, or season, deserves an 8. Walt buys junior a new car and Skyler isn't happy...hhhhmmm. where have i seen this... All of a sudden Skyler is scared of Walt when he was in much greater danger last season and she knew about it and was a DAB ???? Yea OK.. well hey writers we don't need 4 episodes with zero suspense for you to change her character and to show that Mike had connections with bozos in jail. I mean "Breaking Bacon" is boring. Oh hey Skyler and Walt are lying to Hank and his bozo wife.. man thats new... I've never been more disappointed in a show.

Next thing you know Dexter is going to marry Deb and ruin my life, irreparably
