Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The chemotherapy lounge was actually the hallway of the production offices the writers and crew rented in Albuquerque.

    • Bryan Cranston made the last scene more physical than was originally scripted. This added to the degree of drama. He worked with Dean Norris and used the feeling of betrayal to play this out on screen.

    • The Star Trek episode was related to this idea Vince cooked up about an episode that revolved around a pie eating contest. They were worried about humor breaks in the episodes for the last eight episodes, so this was one of the few scenes where they could work in some humor.

    • The original idea for the teaser at the beginning of the episode was to have the skateboarders but the entire White household would be completely destroyed. But the logistics of this (i.e., the inside of the house is a set but the outside is a real location owned by home owners) did not fare well.

    • Peter Gould, Thomas Schnauz, and Vince Gilligan first started working on this episode in July 2012 right after Episode 8 was completed. They wanted to start coming up with storylines and breaking each episode down to plan the final eight episodes.
