During the fight between Walt and Jesse, Walt throws Jesse to the floor and then kicks him in the face. You can easily see that the kick does not hit Jesse. See more »


Skyler White: When I input everything into the Quicken, nothing flashed red, so that's gotta mean it's OK, right?
CID Special Agent: Quicken. You used Quicken to manage books for a business this size.
Skyler White: I did. Oh, do you guys use that here? Cuz it is THE best. It's like having a calculator on your computer.

a story for all seasons
12 September 2011 | by mauricioc-158-529631See all my reviews

From the moment the chapter began, its just so involving that one cant take their eyes off it. every episode not only takes the ride consistently but increasingly higher in terms of adrenaline levels. just when someone thought the past was past, this chapter takes a step back to remind Skyler that she hasn't been good either. and the fact the her former lover takes her back to it, by letting her know that the IRS is into him or might be, she knows already that something has to be done, regardless of her initial interpretation of the situation.

again, there are no short cuts to the story lines and every character is fully solid developed. particularly Skyler, which whom the fact of transforming herself into a Mr White's behavior that edges with moral and ethics grounds leaves her as well in a very vulnerable position

this episode just confirm that this series has so many to give that I should suggest the producers to make their best effort to keep it going (I easily foreseen several seasons to come, its just the right thing to do, the next natural step to take). lets not forget the upset the Sopranos caused by ending up the series too early. looking forward to see next episode
