Box Cutter - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Hank is on his laptop bidding on a mineral on 'Mineral Emporium', the address bar shows 'C://.' which means the web-page is in his own documents on his laptop. No way he can bid on a mineral if it's not online! (00:24:15)

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus Fring kills Victor and throws him to the ground, a stream of blood runs between Pinkman's and White's legs. When the angle cuts, the stream is now a puddle around Victor's head, no blood near the legs.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Pinkman and White are having breakfast in the diner, the items on the table keep changing in each shot. Specifically, the jelly, the milk, the cup with the cream and, most noticeably, the rolled napkin with the cutlery inside: Sometimes folded, others opened.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Marie returns to her home and we see Hank bidding online on crystals, when she walks in and says she's back the side view of him shows his mouth hanging partly open. When it cuts to a different angle, his mouth is shut.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus starts to walk away from where he killed Victor, he drops the Box Cutter, and we see it landing. However, after a cut to the next shot, its position has changed. It is no longer sitting on the line in the floor, and it is pointing 180° in the other direction. We can also see from Walt's shadow that the Box Cutter has moved quite a bit further away from Walt. (00:35:05)

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the Denny's, when Jesse says "Him and us, we get it" he reaches down with his right hand and picks up his knife. Sitting on the plate next to his knife is his fork. But in the next shot, suddenly his fork is in his left hand.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: During the diner scene when Jesse is eating, Walt asks him how he's doing. Jesse's head changes positions several times between shots. From looking out of the window, to back down at his plate, to back out of the window, to straight ahead again, all between shots.

Phoenix - S2-E12

Trivia: The website Walter Jr. creates to raise money for Walter Sr. can be found at http://www.savewalterwhite.com/. The donation link used to send the viewer to a legitimate cancer charity's website, but now just goes to AMC's home page. (00:20:00)

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.
