Season 4 Episode 5


Aired Sunday 9:00 PM Aug 14, 2011 on AMC



  • Trivia

    • Tyrus: (after unexpectedly using a forklift to pick up a barrel with ease) Where do you want it?

      This is an allusion to a scene in the movie Aliens where Ripley unexpectedly shows great skills controlling a power loader. After picking up a crate with it, she says the same line.

    • For the time-lapse part that lasted about 20 seconds on screen, Aaron Paul had to do every behavior for 1 minute straight to get the lapse right. Michelle and some of the other producers told him what to do but they were also laughing so hard off-camera. They shot for 15 minutes, and they kept it all in.

    • Regarding the various drop locations, the one with the windmill was the hardest to shoot. It was actually near a lot of buildings and a street. Michelle MacLaren fought to keep the short shots with the windmill in.

    • Episode Title: This season, the episode titles allude to multiple scenes within the episode. In this episode, Jesse sees a man with a shotgun, but the more subtle reference is that Jesse rides shotgun with Mike all day long.

    • Los Pollos Hermanos won a "Best Burrito" contest for 2010 in ABQ, as seen in a poster in the restaurant. This is in honour of the real restaurant set they use, which is a really famous burrito joint.

  • Quotes

    • Gus: Questions?
      Mike: More than a few, yeah, but I know better than to ask. But anyways, just like you wanted, the kid's a hero.

    • Jesse: It's finally hitting me what the plan is here; it's to bore me to death. Well, mission accomplished because it's totally working. Great job. It'd be nice if you clued me in a little. I'm here to do a job and like yo, if I'm the guy you should just tell me what the hell's up. What?
      Mike: (Pulling over) You are not the guy, you are not capable of being the guy. I had a guy, but now I don't. You are not the guy.
      Jesse: Then what the hell am I doing here?
      Mike: I don't know. It's not my call, so you're gonna sit here and shut up until we finish our pick ups. You got it?

    • Mike: You don't have to do that (i.e. protect Mike).
      Jesse: This is why I'm out here right? To be your backup... So if I'm out here. I need like a gun right?
      Mike: Nope.
      Jesse: I mean isn't that completely idiotic to be out here without a gun, when you haven't said dick. Me being here without a gun, that doesn't make any sense.

    • Mike: You coming? We gotta do this six more times today with alot of miles in between. I'd like to finish before dark.

    • Jesse: You thinking of leaving me in some ditch?
      Mike: What do you care?
      Jesse: I don't. But I'm telling you right now you better shoot straight, or I'll slice off your other ear before this is over.
