    I'm watching Breaking bad S01 and I get addicted to this show. I'm not a native English so it's difficult for me to understand some conversation. In episode 1, when Walt had a ride-along with Hanks, they sat in Hank's car and watched a house that they thought to be a meth lab. And here is the conversation between Hank and his fellow:

    - It's the last house on the right. See it? Not the two-story one. The one next to it.
    The kind of... I don't know, what do you call that? Green?
    - Sage.
    - Sage. What, do you work at the fucking Pottery Barn?
    - Sage. That's the word for it.
    - My fault the only word your dumb ass knows is green?
    - Cheese dick.
    - I know that one. How 'bout that?
    - Anyway, it's the sage one. See it?

    I'd like to know what "Green" and "Sage" means in this conversation. Thanks for your help.

    As stated above, Sage is a shade of Green...which makes Walt come off as a very accurate individual...it develops him as a smart and technical character and adds a bit of humor...the actual conversation itself is not that important.

    That conversation was actually between Hank and his partner. Walt was in the back seat and didn't say anything during this part.
