ABQ - S2-E13

Factual error: When the planes crash over Albuquerque, when the bear is falling towards Walt's house, there is a quick shot of Albuquerque suburbia and mountains. Two major streets are visible, the one on the right is Eubank Blvd and the one in the lower left is Wyoming Blvd, both which run north and south through the city. This means the shot is facing north. There are no mountains immediately north of Albuquerque as shown. The closest mountain range, the Sandia Mountains, are on the east side and wouldn't be in that shot. The closest mountain range in the north are the Jemez Mountains, which are 40 miles away. They would barely be visible in that shot (they would look like blue hills in the distance).

ABQ - S2-E13

Factual error: When the bear is falling through the sky after the plane crash, it is shown through its point of view. When it starts falling, a shot of northern Albuquerque is shown but when the bear turns over, suddenly it is facing the east. Eubank Blvd is a major north and south street, is seen in the shot of the north. In the latter shot, Candelaria Rd, which is a east and west street is visible. When the bear spun over, it should be showing Eubank Blvd going south.

Continuity mistake: When Hank picks up the six pack, he picks it up by the handle in the middle and the bottom. Camera cuts and now he is holding it by the side and bottom. (00:15:50)

ABQ - S2-E13

Character mistake: Skyler places the baby's seat in the table, but forgets to buckle it up. It paces up the scene, but no mother in her right mind would forget this, plus the seat would fly away right after the engine starts.

ABQ - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walt and his wife are talking at the breakfast table the milk carton is facing a certain way. Five seconds later it has completely turned the other direction. The wife is holding a baby, and no sound is heard to indicate that she moved the milk carton in any way. (00:10:17 - 00:10:22)

ABQ - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Sitting outside a crack house looking for Jesse, Mike and Walt are talking in Mike's car. When Mike says he could just be mugged or shot, the camera is behind their heads. Walt turns his head towards Mike while he's saying this. When the camera angle changes, suddenly Walt is looking out of the passenger window again.

Factual error: On the radar screen, a flight, SAA332 is seen. SAA is the icao code for South African Airways, which did not serve any city near Albuquerque in 2009.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning, there is a shot of the one-eyed toy. The camera is riding on the cart with it. You can see the shadow of the camera in the lower left frame.

ABQ - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Skylar is packing, one shot of her has one color clothes that she's putting in the suitcase and the next shot of her has different color clothes. This happens two or three times. (00:39:00)

Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears. It ceases to exist, without me. No, you don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Trivia: There is a scene in this episode where Walter angrily tosses a box of pizza in the air in such a way that the pizza exits the box and lands on his roof. Before filming this scene, the crew had wondered how many takes would be required to achieve the desired result. Bryan Cranston nailed it on the first try.

More trivia for Breaking Bad

Show generally

Question: Just how does Walt intend to explain the presence of all that meth money, even posthumously? Just how does he think his heirs will react to that, how is he going to launder it? How does he think his wife and kids will explain it? If they knowingly inherit and use such money, they could face charges of accessory after the fact. Is this ever addressed in the show?

dizzyd

Chosen answer: I'm not sure how far you are into the show but he does eventually come up with a way to launder it (wont spoil it for you but rest assured, when he gets a lawyer the show gets much better!) and in the final season he also comes up with a way to give his children his money without the cops or the DA knowing it came from him.

The_Iceman

Answer: Walt decided to buy a car wash to launder his money, which makes a profit without the dirty money. At the end he blackmailed Elliot and Gretchen in to giving his money to junior and Holly. However 90% of his $80m is stolen.
