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)


Shotgun - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: Jesse and Mike are driving to the first pickup spot in the desert. The camera pans down over the windmill/pump with the car driving towards us and a classic BB desert scene in the distance. A cameraman is visible in the bottom right of the shot. (00:08:50)

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.

Bug - S4-E9

Factual error: Walt and Jesse are fighting and Walt dislodges a copy of the videogame Rage from a cupboard. Rage was released more than 2 years after the time this episode was set. (00:44:30)

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.

Salud - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Mike yells at Jessie to make himself useful and find a gun. The shadows in these two scenes are very long indicating it was shot late in the day. In the next shots and rest of the sequence, the sun is overhead.

Bullet Points - S4-E4

Other mistake: When Walt is ringing Jesse to find out where he is, the call goes straight to voicemail. However, when he rings Jesse from inside Jesse's bedroom, the phone rings before going to voicemail. The mistake being that the call should have gone straight to voicemail. (00:41:00)

Crawl Space - S4-E11

Factual error: When the doctor is reciting Jesse's medical information, he states that he is 1.87 meters, which would make Jesse 6ft 3 in. Aaron Paul is only 5ft 8 in. (00:07:42)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: First, the doctors says 180 centimeters, not 1.87 meters. 180 cm is 5'10." But it's not a mistake if characters are a couple inches taller or shorter than the actors that play them. Just like often characters can be older or young than actors that play them.


Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus drops the Stanley knife, it's position in relation to Walt changes. In one shot it's horizontal to their position then it's on an angle. (00:33:30)

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Question: When Saul buys Jesse's house from his parents, he said that he showed their lawyer, Mr. Gardner, "all the pertinent financials", meaning $875,000 in cash available to buy the house. Jesse only had $450,000 and that money was not in any account. How did Saul show Mr. Gardner that he had $875,000 in cash?


Answer: Saul is a criminal himself. It's not past his capabilities to forge some documents to show the 857k is available.

Forged documents by Saul is most likely the correct answer.


Answer: Saul has a stash of cash himself, hidden in his office. It's possible he used some of that instead as part of the scheme instead of having to go through the effort of falsifying documents.

At the time, they were not producing enough Meth to get that much money in the time frame of the events.
