Breaking Bad

I See You - S3-E8

Character mistake: When Hank is brought to the hospital with gunshot wounds, the ambulance and its two EMTs are met outside by two doctors. One doctor says "Let's get him two grams of oxygen. What's his hemoglobin?" This episode's technical adviser was perhaps away for this scene. How much exactly is two grams of oxygen? Orders for administering oxygen would be given in liters, such as two liters per minute (LPM). The line is presumably meant to be 'two liters of oxygen'. (00:02:25)

Cancer Man - S1-E4

Character mistake: When Walt is in the bathroom using hydrogen peroxide to clean his leg wound he received from killing Crazy 8, he notices blood on his pants. He tries to clean the bloodstain off with a toothbrush. I think that any and EVERY chemist would know that hydrogen peroxide almost instantly removes blood stains from clothing. But, instead of using this somewhat common knowledge, Walt scrubs the stain with a toothbrush under the sink. Even if he had never heard of this 'trick', given the nature of H2O2 and Walt's understanding of chemistry, he would have realized this chemical solution immediately... Especially since he used the peroxide seconds before discovering the blood stain. (00:15:55 - 00:17:10)

Suggested correction: Walter just killed a person for the first time. This took a traumatic tool on him and has clouded his thinking, which would affect his thinking process.

This scene takes place a couple of days later. Enough time for the adrenaline to leave his system.

Cat's in the Bag... - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Walt steals the bottles of "hydrofluoric acid," they are misspelled on the labels as "hydroflouric." This misspelling is corrected when hydrofluoric acid reappears in season 4. This was corrected for some DVD releases but is still visible on some streaming services. (00:11:20)

ABQ - S2-E13

Character mistake: Skyler places the baby's seat in the table, but forgets to buckle it up. It paces up the scene, but no mother in her right mind would forget this, plus the seat would fly away right after the engine starts.

Cat's in the Bag... - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Skylar types in the phone number, the paper reads "505-148-5039," but on the computer she types "505-148-3369." (00:14:30)

Gray Matter - S1-E5

Character mistake: The actor that plays Walter Jr. is laughing in the scene where they confront Walter about treatment. Hank is reaching for items from the cheese plate and RJ Mitte is trying to hide his laughter. (00:25:30)

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the very end of the episode, right after he tells Jesse how he used the red phosphorus to kill the gunmen, Walt leans down to vomit. You can see his microphone transmitter under his shirt. (00:54:20)

Show generally

Question: Just how does Walt intend to explain the presence of all that meth money, even posthumously? Just how does he think his heirs will react to that, how is he going to launder it? How does he think his wife and kids will explain it? If they knowingly inherit and use such money, they could face charges of accessory after the fact. Is this ever addressed in the show?

dizzyd

Chosen answer: I'm not sure how far you are into the show but he does eventually come up with a way to launder it (wont spoil it for you but rest assured, when he gets a lawyer the show gets much better!) and in the final season he also comes up with a way to give his children his money without the cops or the DA knowing it came from him.

The_Iceman

Answer: Walt decided to buy a car wash to launder his money, which makes a profit without the dirty money. At the end he blackmailed Elliot and Gretchen in to giving his money to junior and Holly. However 90% of his $80m is stolen.
