Haha. I didn't include that in my post because I had to look it up during the episode and don't feel like I've earned the right to use it yet.

It shows that Chuck became unhinged, went to elaborate lengths to tie very loose strands together to tie his brother to a crime that seems completely unreasonable. The fact that the crime actually happened that way is irrelevant, it seems so unrealistic, that it made Chuck seem malicious.
His mental illness at the end, gives Jimmy cause that he was severely worried about his brother, and was just trying to help him.
All of that makes the tape no longer 'evidence', but the recording of a crazy delusion. Unclassifying it, makes it no longer evidence, making it no longer a felony, making the only thing that could possible disbar him, goes away.
All that is left is the misdemeanor of destroying property.

True. I was talking mostly from Jimmy's perspective. Chuck is probably done. Even if Howard gives him the benefit of the doubt, he will have to do something with him from a PR perspective. He flew the coop on this one.

Does Jimmy owe Chuck anything? Was Jimmy in the wrong for involving Chuck's ex-wife and then not going over there when Chuck needed help? I can't believe she came to Jimmy for help. It seems to me that Chuck is going to get help finally, but only out of spite to Jimmy. He was testing himself with the battery and I assume calling the doctor to ask for help?
I really like Nacho, but it wasn't cool when he picked up Crazy Eight (right, that's who that is?) just because Hector made that comment. Hector better leave his dad out of this, but he won't, and Nacho will poison his pill?
I like that Jimmy listened to the vest from last episode and bought the fish a big tank.
Just last week the Bald Movie BCS podcast was saying they wouldn't be surprised if Lydia showed up soon. Boom, there she was this week.
Did anyone feel let down by the first appearance of Saul Goodman? I love that it was a goofy character and very cheesy, but I would have liked to see Jimmy say it for the first time and watch how he came to that name.

We got confirmation this episode that BCS is in 2001. 1966 bottle of scotch + 35 years
(fun fact, that bottle cost $20k back then).
Breaking Bad starts in 2008. We still have 7 years until the two shows meet up with each other.
In BB, Mike's grand daughter appears to be 8. By this logic she should be a new born in BCS, but she looks 8.
Jesse is a recent HS student in BB, let's assume 20. Jesse would currently be 13 in BCS and couldn't show up in a cameo.

Now, I know when I talk about bottles of bourbon that have aged, once I get to a point I use the easy numbers like the 5s and 10s. So, even though it would have been a 36 or 37 year old bottle of scotch/bourbon, I would have said like 35 or like 40 year old bottle. I'm not saying you are wrong, just don't know if that is a good measure of time since you ballpark the age.
Tyler wrote:2001/2002, same thing. I didn't realize Gilligan confirmed it was 2002. That would have saved me hours worth of math.

I admit I don't remember this at all.

Anyway, he later tried to pull the trick one more time and his friend passed from heart attack, and that is where he got his pinky ring.
I'll post my full write-up later, but I wanted to get this thought out.
At what point will we see Jimmy create this commercial?
