Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Tuco shows up at Walter's house in the backseat of Jesse's car, he tells Walter to get in. As they drive off, the shot pans out to show the street sign across from Walter's house. The sign says Piermont, which is the real name of the street. In the show, the Whites live on Negra Arroyo Lane. (00:48:00)

Phoenix - S2-E12

Other mistake: Walt takes new-born Holly into the garage to show her the money hidden behind wall insulation. He enters through a door that doesn't exist in the interior of the house. (00:15:00)

Season 2 generally

Other mistake: Throughout the show, during the into credits, people's names have 1 or 2 letters replaced by green characters to symbolise elements from the periodic table. However, Michael Slovis has the 'Ch' highlighted. There is no 'Ch' on the periodic table. (00:03:20)

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.


ABQ - S2-E13

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)

Grilled - S2-E2

Factual error: Hydrofluoric acid is so dangerous that no high school chemistry lab in the US would have a thimble full of the stuff around, let alone gallons. While it's incredibly toxic it's also a very poor choice for getting rid of bodies, which Walt would know.

Suggested correction: Walt also has never had to dump a body before. Hydrochloric acid would dissolve enough of the body to make it unrecognizable and easier to move, especially in a proper container where it can be transported. Plus this acid was more readily available to Walt and Jesse at this point in the series.

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.

4 Days Out - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: Walt and Jesse get stranded out in the desert. We see Walt cough up some blood and Jesse stand behind him. In this shot you can see the reflection of someone move in Walt's glasses, despite them being alone and still. (00:32:30)

Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of season 1, we see the meth get weighed and Tuco tell No Doze to give Walter some more money. However in this episode the scene is different. We see Tuco give Walter the money which already includes the extra money. (00:02:15)

4 Days Out - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: At the end, when outside the airport, the camera zooms in on Walt's face. When the camera does, keep an eye on Walt's left eye. A black camera can be seen in the glass increasing in size as the camera zooms in. (00:40:40)

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.
