So many gems in that one!

"Yeah, but it's cable money, though."
"Tell me about it."

And the talk about the value of supporting players. (Paul and JLD are/were definitely two of the best)

And the Los Pollos Hermanos logo.

And on and on...

I was hoping there might be a bit about Cranston and JLD both being on Seinfeld, like a Tim Whatley reference, but I didn't catch anything.

My favorite was the "bitch" at the end.

Indeed. However, I think they could have milked the whole meth thing. It was too easy to know it wasn't going to be meth.

But then it would have been "Definitely Illegal Pawn".

Somehow I missed that the first time I watched it. That was hysterical. And yeah, of course, "bitch." That was great.

I cried, because I laughed so hard. Then I watched it again and cried again.

The "bitch" closing is the best though - I hope Aaron Paul gets the recognition Bryan Cranston does, they are both gifted actors.

I don't mean actually making meth. I think I'm trying to say that they should have showed a little more...preparation? before bringing out the puppy. Set up like there were really gonna cook up some meth. Scare JLD a little bit more. I can't seem to articulate today.

Eta: I've got it! They could have added some epsom salts (like that silvery stuff they add in the show), and then tested the PH, saying something like "that's real nice", and then bring out the puppy.

I didn't catch the logo until the second or third time I watched it, so now I want to watch it again. I'm sure there are other little tidbits.
