Green Light - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walt is talking to Jesse in Jesse's car, when Jesse pulls out the bag of meth it is in a slide to seal bag. The bag changes between this and a regular ziploc bag from shot to shot. (00:19:30)

Other mistake: In the famous mugshot of Walter against a height chart, the chart goes up in nice 2 inch increments until 5'8." It then jumps to 6'0", completely skipping 5'10". Did they forget there are 12 inches in a foot, not 10?

Suggested correction: This picture was never used in the show. This looks to be fan-made. Regardless, this picture was never seen in any episode of Breaking Bad, so it is not a valid mistake.

If the picture was used as a promo shot by the production team then it could be considered a mistake. If it's fan-made then the correction seems to be valid. Does anyone know the source of the image?

I can't find a source, but I don't recall ever seeing it in the show or in any ads, and in all honesty, it's pretty low-quality, so I seriously doubt it's a real production or promotional image. (The masking around his ears is quite bad, the "bruises" are digitally painted on - and poorly so at that, etc.) I would be willing to bet money on it being fan-made.

TedStixon

It's not in the episodes as the corrector says. But I never watched the show when it was 1st airing, so I'm unsure if it was used as a promotional shot and as such can't say if the correction is valid (though, as you say, the quality is low) so I would lean to the correction being valid.

Cat's in the Bag... - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Walt steals the bottles of "hydrofluoric acid," they are misspelled on the labels as "hydroflouric." This misspelling is corrected when hydrofluoric acid reappears in season 4. This was corrected for some DVD releases but is still visible on some streaming services. (00:11:20)

...and the Bag's in the River - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Walt is sitting on the overpass it is clear that his car is parked on the part that straddles the median between the lanes, but when the shot is inside his car the view appears as if he is parked directly over the right lanes of traffic. (00:43:50)

Green Light - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Hank is standing between the ATM and the pumps at the gas station, the shadow cast by the roof over the pumps shifts between shots. The shot from away, taken next to the pole with the Indian logo was taken earlier in the day, casting a long shadow. The other shots have a higher sun which has moved by several hours.

Mas - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Gus is showing Walt the lab, the washer leans forward with one item hanging out. Camera cuts and 2 items are hanging out. This is an instant cut and no time for the item to fall into the position. (00:21:20)

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.
