Box Cutter - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Hank is on his laptop bidding on a mineral on 'Mineral Emporium', the address bar shows 'C://.' which means the web-page is in his own documents on his laptop. No way he can bid on a mineral if it's not online! (00:24:15)


Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus Fring kills Victor and throws him to the ground, a stream of blood runs between Pinkman's and White's legs. When the angle cuts, the stream is now a puddle around Victor's head, no blood near the legs.

Shotgun - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: Jesse and Mike are driving to the first pickup spot in the desert. The camera pans down over the windmill/pump with the car driving towards us and a classic BB desert scene in the distance. A cameraman is visible in the bottom right of the shot. (00:08:50)

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Pinkman and White are having breakfast in the diner, the items on the table keep changing in each shot. Specifically, the jelly, the milk, the cup with the cream and, most noticeably, the rolled napkin with the cutlery inside: Sometimes folded, others opened.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Marie returns to her home and we see Hank bidding online on crystals, when she walks in and says she's back the side view of him shows his mouth hanging partly open. When it cuts to a different angle, his mouth is shut.

Salud - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Mike yells at Jessie to make himself useful and find a gun. The shadows in these two scenes are very long indicating it was shot late in the day. In the next shots and rest of the sequence, the sun is overhead.

Bullet Points - S4-E4

Other mistake: When Walt is ringing Jesse to find out where he is, the call goes straight to voicemail. However, when he rings Jesse from inside Jesse's bedroom, the phone rings before going to voicemail. The mistake being that the call should have gone straight to voicemail. (00:41:00)

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus drops the Stanley knife, it's position in relation to Walt changes. In one shot it's horizontal to their position then it's on an angle. (00:33:30)

Salud - S4-E10

Other mistake: Don Eladio tells Gus that every two years he has to give him a "paliza" which the subtitles translate as "a spank". A spank is an "azote" (Spanish) or "nalgada" (Mexican Spanish). A "paliza" is a beating, way more violent than a spank.

Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears. It ceases to exist, without me. No, you don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

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.

More trivia for Breaking Bad

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?


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.


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.
