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.

Factual error: Walt places a squeegee on the battery of a car to blow it up. This car is a BMW e36, which has the battery in the trunk.

Continuity mistake: As Walter is telling the story of how he met his wife with the crossword puzzles, there is a cut between two shots when he's saying eventually "I caught her looking over at me."

Trivia: There is a scene in this episode where Walter angrily tosses a box of pizza in the air in such a way that the pizza exits the box and lands on his roof. Before filming this scene, the crew had wondered how many takes would be required to achieve the desired result. Bryan Cranston nailed it on the first try.

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Question: When Saul buys Jesse's house from his parents, he said that he showed their lawyer, Mr. Gardner, "all the pertinent financials", meaning $875,000 in cash available to buy the house. Jesse only had $450,000 and that money was not in any account. How did Saul show Mr. Gardner that he had $875,000 in cash?

Answer: Saul is a criminal himself. It's not past his capabilities to forge some documents to show the 857k is available.

Forged documents by Saul is most likely the correct answer.

Answer: Saul has a stash of cash himself, hidden in his office. It's possible he used some of that instead as part of the scheme instead of having to go through the effort of falsifying documents.

At the time, they were not producing enough Meth to get that much money in the time frame of the events.
