Having gotten away from Tuco, Walt and Jesse now have to get home and explain where they have been. Walt has a plan and they split up. He goes to a supermarket and takes off all of his clothes while walking around the aisles. He's hospitalized and claims to have no memory of where he's been for the last few days. Jesse returns to his house to clean out the basement and get rid of the RV. When the DEA also track him down, he claims that he's been shacked up with a prostitute for the weekend. The police don't believe him and think they know how to nail him: they bring in Tuco's uncle to identify him. With some of his problems now behind him, Walt is keen to start cooking again.

Did You Know?


On the DVD extras for season 2, Vince Gilligan says that the scriptwriters told him the title was from a line in the Humphrey Bogart film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948). This is incorrect - the title is a line from the Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall film To Have and Have Not (1944). However a reference to The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) would be more relevant to the plot of Breaking Bad (2008). See more »

Steven Gomez: [after questioning Wendy, Jesse's alibi] You wanted her to bang a football player, you big, bald pervert?
Hank Schrader: It's a long story, Gomey.
Steven Gomez: Yeah, I'm sure it is, and I wanna hear it, but first we gotta cut Pinkman loose.
Hank Schrader: Not yet. I got one more shot at that little skid mark.

Forces of Evil are Brothers
28 April 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

If Walter White was dealing with reputable people, he would have been jailed a long time ago. But being in the business of meth with the scum of the earth, makes him a peripheral character by a kind of evil brotherhood. So when Jesse is picked up, the hatred of the police comes into play and there is no retribution. The old man would rather accept the death of his nephew than give information to the cops. Walter comes up with the wackiest plan, ending up naked in a supermarket and pretending to have memory loss. He is brought to a hospital which treats him like a prisoner because of his irrationality. There is great tension in this episode and i can't wait to see what's next. Walter is not off the hook with the person closest to him.
