Jimmy's business enters uncharted territory. Kim's confidence is tested when she's faced with a legal problem only she can solve. Nacho navigates increased pressure from Gus. Mike continues to spiral.

Some went to your

That explains

As long as Salamanca is
on this side of the border,

we cannot continue
as we were.

You keep your
goddamn retainer.

Nonviolent felonies,
50% off.

I just can't see it.



Jimmy: How about, uh,
special discounts?

Um, for the next,
uh, two weeks,

I'll take one.
Yeah? That's for you.

Yeah. Alright.

There you are.
Oh, yeah?

Money, money, money!

[Dog barking]


Come on!

Get back here,

I'm okay!

[Alarm blaring]

50% off! 50% off!

Unh. Ahh!

Ah. Yo.

You know what that means?

[Flashlight clicks]



what's happening?

What's happening?!


Get off me, man.

[Breathing heavily]



It's okay.

[Breathing heavily]

Nacho: Come on, man.
What's he want from me?

I switched the stuff.
I played it all like he told me.




What are we doin'?

[Gun clicks]

Come on, man.

We got five people
in there.

Too bad.
[Vehicle door opens]

Hey, wait. Wait.

Hey. Hey, wait! Wait!

Hey, wait!

Why's he doin' this?
[Vehicle door closes]

Hey, why's he doin' this?
I did everything.


Please, man.
Please, man.

Please, no.
Please, no.


Hey, please.

Please, man.


I get it.

Just tell me
what you want me to do.

Lalo Salamanca.

I need to know
where he is going.

What he is thinking.

What he is planning.

I need to know what he's
going to do before he does it.

I've been trying.


He doesn't tell me shit.

He just keeps talking about
some guy named Werner Ziegler

and some gringo Michael.

That's it.

Gain his confidence.

Make him rely on you.


Find a way.

[Exhales heavily]

My father has nothing
to do with this.

[Breathing heavily]

I'll find a way.
I'll make him trust me.


[Conversations in Spanish]

[Vehicle door opens]


[Vehicle door closes]

Pop's a nice guy.

[Engine starts]

Jimmy: Yeah. Uh-huh. Sure.

[Clears throat]
Let me see if I have this right.

Uh, a Mr. Bertram Moran,
AKA "B-Mo,"

claims that you solicited him
for the purchase of narcotics

when, in fact, you were simply
enjoying a Big Gulp in the park

when he approached
and attempted to sell to you.

I got a live one.

Yes, PJ. Go ahead.

Kim, sorry.
My side is too full.

I'm gonna take some of those
back to Mrs. Nguyen's.

[Hangers clicking]


Well, I think
I got the specifics.

I'll call you later.

Geez. Chatty one.

So, uh, hey, how's it going
with, uh, "Cold Finger,"

the mini-fridge mastermind?

You get a trial date yet?

Uh, no.

He took the deal.

He took the five months?


Well, you were right, as usual.
[Cellphone vibrating]


Saul Goodman,
speedy justice for you.

Yes, Miss, I --

Oh, no.

Well, that's not right.

Yeah. Go on.

[Bag zips]

C-Could you hold
for a moment?

Kim, how about dinner
and a movie tonight?

I'm -- Scampi and Scorsese

'cause they got "After Hours"
on the Classic Movie Channel.

I love that one,
but, um, we'll have to see.

I might need to stay late.

Just let me know.

I'll see ya.

[Keys jingle]

[Door opens]
Yeah, so, go ahead.

Something about a minivan?

[Door closes]

[Car alarm chirps]

Jimmy, what are you --

There's something
I got to show you.

It's just three blocks
from here.

Look, I --
[Cellphone vibrating]

[Chuckles, sighs]

I know you got to
get to work.

This'll only take
a couple minutes.


If we go right now,
it'll be over like that.

Which way?

Take a right.

There. Right there.
The white one?

That one right there.

[Gearshift clicks]

[Engine shuts off]

Jimmy, we're not
buying a house.

Maybe not today, but it doesn't
hurt to look, does it?

[Breathes deeply]

I drove by this place like
a week ago, and I'm curious.

Aren't you,
just a little?

Look at all that space.

Hey, you're doin' great.

I'm gonna be doin' great.

I got 45 clients.

45? How are you gonna
handle all that?

I got a system.
But can we just look?

They're not
even open yet.

Yeah, well --

They want to sell this house.
They'll let us in.



[Seat belts click]

Hey, folks.

Do you mind signing in?

There's a guest book
right over here.

You know what?

Um, could we do that
on our way out?

Sure. Yeah.

Just take your time.
Have a look around.

Let me know if you
have any questions.

You got it.

[Breathes deeply]

Man, look at
all this wall space.

Imagine a plasma TV
mounted right there,

one of the huge
new ones.

This would be a big change,
but we could make it our own.

We could host
movie nights.

Some comfy chairs and smell
of popcorn in the air

and -- and...

check out
these countertops.


Is this quartz?

I-I read somewhere
that it's good for healing.

Mm, so good for healing.


Hey, you know that, uh, 50%-off
thing I said I wouldn't do?

Well, I did it.

I, um, told a few
potential clients.

It just kind of
slipped out.

And don't worry.
I know these people.

They're not gonna do anything
'cause of some stupid discount.

But it was a bonehead move,
and I shouldn't have done it.




Jimmy, I know you were trying
to help, but...

I don't want to lie
to my clients.

You're talking about
the fridge guy?

That -- That was
a dumb idea.

I mean all my clients.

Of course.

Never again.

Oh, my God.

This is the closet
of your dreams.

Our dreams.


[Imitating echoing]
Where are my Louboutins,



Hey. Check this out.

Oh, there's jets, too.

Yeah, it's like
a mini-spa.

That'd be so nice after
a long day on our feet.

Yeah. And two sinks,
so plenty of room for brushing.

And spitting.

Hey, you got to see this.

I mean,
look at all the nozzles.


Is that
what I think it is?

Uh, steam?

But, uh, how do you
get it going?

Jimmy: Maybe the water's
shut off.



Quit it.

You're very mature.

Very mature.


Thanks again.

[Door closes]

Nice house, huh?


Maybe someday.

[Car doors open]

[Car doors close]

[Indistinct conversations,
soft instrumental music playing]



[Speaking Spanish]

Excuse me,
Mr. Salamanca.

Uh, would you give your uncle
some of this?

It's Fizzy K.
He needs to hydrate.

Fizzy K?

It's just
a vitamin solution.

It's Very-Berry,
his favorite.

Right, Hector?

I'll make sure he drinks it.

Thank you.


Stacey: Mike, hi.

I'm sorry
to bother you.

No, no bother, honey.
What's up?

I don't know what your work
schedule is like these days.

I'm still making
my own hours.

I just got called in.

Emily's busy, and --

No problem.

Are you sure?

I'll be happy to watch her.

What time
do you need me there?

How about now?


On the way.

Oh, thanks, Mike.
You're a lifesaver.



I thought we'd finish fixing
the ladder on the tree house.

[Door closes]

Hey, kid.

She needs to finish
her homework first.

Don't let her
sweet-talk you.

Oh, not a chance of that.

She's gotta learn
her times tables.

She's on the sevens.


There's lasagna
in the oven,

and I should be back
before bedtime.

Sounds good.

See you later,

Bye, Mom!


[Door opens, closes]

What do we got?

Sevens are the worst.


I bet you know more
than you think you know.

I do?

You remember when we watched
the Super Bowl?

Mike: 7 times 3?

Kaylee: 21.

7 times 4?

4 touchdowns
equals 28.

Plus another one makes 35.

Go, Eagles!
Kick ass!

You don't talk
like that.

Who taught you
to talk like that?

You did.


Come on.
7 times 8.

Uh...that's a lot
of touchdowns.

It's a lot of touchdowns.
It's a big game.

Where we at?


Oh. So you think the kicker
missed the extra point.

Oh, no.
It's 56.

7 times 8 is 56.

You got it.

My dad liked the Eagles,

Yeah. He sure did.

Was -- Was he
good at math?

Thank you.

Yeah, he, uh --

Your daddy was a smart kid,
a good student like you.

Did he want to be a policeman
when he was my age?

When he was your age.

You know, I think he went back
and forth between an astronaut,

deep-sea explorer...
like Jacques Cousteau.


You don't know
Jacques Cousteau?


Well, we'll fix that.

So, instead my dad decided
to be a policeman, like you.


You make sure
those are nice and even.

And he was a really good
policeman, right?


And you taught him.


But...the bad guys
got him?

I told you
to make those even.

I am.
No, you're not!

You're making a mess!

You either do it right
or you don't do it.

But I want to do it.

You're done.
You are done!

[Vehicle approaching]

[Gearshift clicks]

[Door opens]

[Engine shuts off]

[Car door closes]

Where's Kaylee?

She's in her room.
She won't come out.

She didn't eat dinner.

What -- What happened?


[Car door closes]


[Beats & Rhymes'
"Clean Groove Mix" playing]

? Yo, well, I'm outta control
but never out of my zone ?

? Take it down in my phone
before I'm outta my home ?

? I'm the life of the party
everywhere I go ?

? And they expect me to glow,
so I got to be cold ?

? Like a baseball, shorty,
I just got to be thrown ?


? I ain't worried about beef ?

So? Two?

Gonna be a 10 tonight.



? I don't care
what they were saying ?

? I ain't wanting to know ?

? I know hating's real bad
for your arteries, though ?

? Every party we go,
everybody we know ?

[Rapping indistinctly]

? You the lamest but you had to
be the cockiest, though ?

? You're gonna play with it
all the time, dawg ?

? You're gonna play with it
all the time, dawg ?

? Gonna play with it,
goin' wild, y'all ?

? Yes, yes, y'all ?

[Rapping indistinctly]



? From the hardest of streets,
them guys put me to sleep ?


Why you doing that?

Where's the cookie?

I sent it down.

Well, it ain't here.

Yeah, it is.
What up?

No stuff.
No stuff?

It's there!

No, it ain't!

Quit that, fool!

Who you callin' fool,

Don't make me
come down there.


Stop playin'.

Oh, you better

Shut up!
You shut up!

Shut up!
You shut up!

Shut up!

[Poker chips clink]

[Can opens]



Fairground spot's
doing really good.

Lots of traffic.


Shut up
while I'm in a hand.

[Exhales sharply]

You know what?


-Oh, man.

It's too deep for me.


Ah, did I get you?

Let me see what you had.

You had a set?


You had three 8s on the turn
and you don't raise?

And then you fold
at the river?

Too bad.

Ocho loco, this guy, huh?

Man: Ocho loco.

Alright, guys,
give me your cards.

[Cellphone ringing]



Hold up.

Problem on Fifth Street,

some skells saying
they didn't get their stuff.

It's your crew.

[Cards flutter]

Off you go.
Ocho Loco.



? I go harder, they ball ?

? I ball harder, they move ?

? I move smart ?

[Rapping indistinctly]


Yo. Maybe we could shoot
the pipe, like, with a gun.


Hey, we ain't
shooting nothin'.

Oh, okay.
Well, we paid for our shit,

so we're getting
our shit.

Where's our glass?


We gonna kick your ass!

Yo, give me the mic...
Mic! I can rap
about this pipe.

[Both laugh]

? Yo, my name is Mr. Sticky ?

? I'm pretty frickin' tricky,
gonna kick you in the thicky ?

What does that even mean?

? 'Cause I'm Mr. Thicky
and I'm so tricky ?

? Yo, yo, ya thicky ?

Whoa. Whoa.
Whoa. Oh, shit.

-Hey, we're still gettin'
our glass, right?
-Yo, Domingo!

[Siren chirps]



[Music stops]

This your vehicle?

Uh, no, sir.

Wanna come down here?

No problem, Officer.

[Police radio chatter]

Whatcha doin' up there?

Uh, just fixin'
the drainpipe.

Some kinda block.

[Knock on pipe]

Guess you fixed it.

[Chuckles nervously]

[Police radio chatter]

Only Domingo
got picked up?


The rest of us bounced,
but he was stuck up there.

[Footsteps approach]

[Knock on window]

Whole block's crawling.

[Car door closes]

You got the stuff?

You got it?


I-I had to leave it.

They were on my ass.


[Tires screech]

[Police radio chatter]

Shit's gone now.

These assholes are gonna turn
the whole place upside down.

[Dog barking in distance,
indistinct conversations]

How much is in there?

Almost a full load.



[Car door opens]

Wait. Wait.
Where you goin'?

[Car door closes]
[Speaking Spanish]






There he is.

Ooh. [Laughs]


No, no, no, no.


Look at that.

He's a fool, right?



Oh, oh.


[Police radio chatter]


[Indistinct talking]


[Pounding on door]

Officer: Police!
Open up!

[Pounding on door]

Got a fortified door.
Need to breach.

[Police radio chatter]





[Police radio chatter]

[Indistinct shouting]

Did they get him?

They musta g--
[Car door opens]

[Breathing heavily]


Ignacio Varga...

[Engine starts]

Jimmy: Suzanne.

Oh! Suzanne.

Suzanne, I think we have
something in common.

Suzanne, I think we have
something in common.

[Indistinct conversations]

Suzanne, I think we have
something in common.




Am I on
"Candid Camera" again?

No, but, by the way,
you looked great.

We gotta talk
Bruno Leder.

Lost cause.

Ah, beg to differ.
He assaulted a minor.

That oaf? You call him a minor,
I call him a menace.

Hey, my featherweight
was simply defending himself

against your raging bull.

No sale.
Leder's doing the full freight.

Welcome back
to the law, McGill.

It's Goodman.
And you'll be back.

[Door closes]


Hey. What's the word
on moving Tripp to Thursday?

Mm, it works
on the calendar.

I just have to check
with the other side.
Eh, consider 'em checked.


Hey, you got something
for me?


Muchas gracias.
Alright, let's see.

Long sleeves covering the tats.
That's excellent.

And pull your hair back
and lose the hardware.

Her Honor doth protest
a chin pillar.

But it's gonna close up.

Into every life
a little rain must fall.

Meet me outside Courtroom 103
at 2:15.

Mitch, uh, what say you
to moving Tripp to Thursday?

Mm, Thursday works.
Great! Thursday.


What did you do?

I don't know.
What did I do?

Suddenly Leder
has witnesses?

Oh, what can I say?
People step up.

From the sewer?

Life's rich pageant.
Who are we to judge?

they saw what they saw --

your beefy, if youthful,

my small potato.

So, what do you say,
uh, sentence suspended,

6 months probation,
70 hours community service?

Yeah, I guess.

That's the spirit.

[Elevator bell dings]


So -- Uh.

Suzanne, I think we have
something in common.

Suzanne, I think we have
something in common.

[Indistinct conversations]

Suzanne, I --


Howard. Hey.

You're back in the saddle.



Saul Goodman?

Yeah. That's me.

How's business?

It's good.
It's very good. You?

Actually, it looks like
it's gonna be one of
our best years ever.

I was wondering,

any chance you're available
for lunch sometime?

Lunch. Lunch? Really?

Yeah. Oh, have Julie
call my people.

I'm in the book.
See ya, Howard.

[Sighs] Suzanne, I think
we have a few things in common.

Oh, I hope not.

Oh, we do,
to the tune of 16 cases.

So, you're busy.
I'm busy.

How 'bout we do
a lightning round?

We'll settle these puppies,
20 minutes.

Don't you already
have an appointment
with me on the books?

Yeah. Next Tuesday.

But, you know,
let's get it done right now.

How about we wait
till next Tuesday?

My clients need answers.

Look, hey, you've got
a problem with me?

That's fine.
Don't take it out on my clients.

This isn't about your clients.
This is about your wallet.

[Elevator bell dings]
Hey, slow down.
You're looking for turnover.

You want to churn through
more clients, make more money.

That's your problem,
not mine.

Uh, uh, Suzanne,
I'm outraged.

[Man singing in Spanish]




They're sayin'
it's clear out there.

Should I tell the guys
to move out?

it's your call.






[Door closes]


[Bottles clinking]




[Bottle opens]


[Bottle cap clinks]


Your friend, um...


Yeah. Domingo.

I known him a long time.



My family
knows his family.



Has he ever
been inside before?



You worried about him?


No, man,
he'll keep his mouth shut.




[Bottle thuds]


You want me
to take care of it?



I got something much better
for him.


Come on.


I need you
to call Beau Bindler

and set a meeting
for tomorrow a.m.

so we can prep him
for the deposition.

-Got it.
-And maybe bring bagels.

The guy
eats his feelings.

Bagels, check.

See ya.
See ya tomorrow.


Okay, let's review.

Your sister, Nancy,
attacked your girlfriend,

also named Nancy,
with a curling iron?

I'm gonna need a face-to-face
so I know who I'm representing.

Look, I'm in an elevator.
Now I'm gonna lose you.

Uh, hello?

[Elevator rumbles, thuds]

Oh, no.

No, no, no.


Hey! Hello?!


This is ADA Ericsen.

We're in the south bank of the
supposedly working elevator --

God damn it!


Sorry. We're stuck
between floors two and three.

Yeah. How long?


[Telephone hangs up]


They're sending someone.

It's gonna be a minute.

[Sighs heavily]
I can't believe this.




"Ladies and gentlemen
of the jury,

I ask you, what is this trial
really about?

The state
may call it vandalism,

but I call my client's brave act
of social justice

'constitutionally protected
free speech.'

That --"

I-I got to use my time.

Can you do it silently?

Um, yeah, sure.

[Inhales sharply]

[Quietly] "My client is a man
of deep moral fortitude --

moral fortitude,
with a passion for progress."

"Puh, puh."

"A solid citizen --"

No. No. No.

"A dedicated citizen with
a voice that needs to ring out!"

Name one.

I'm sorry?

One of the cases.

What, one of our cases?

Oh, let me think.
Uh, Veronica Nix.

Motor vehicle theft?

With mitigating

Such as?

It was
her aunt's minivan.

That's already baked in.

It was parked
in the driveway.

The old lady
was berating her, so...

So, what?

So, you know,
good luck finding a jury

that's never been reamed out
by a relative.

One year probation.


Just like that?

What do you say we look at,
uh...Jerome Sheehan?

So, full year supervised
for Drew Kirkman?

How about 18 months?

18 it is.

[Inhales sharply]

Next up, we got...
Tanika Berman.

Ah. Um [Inhales sharply]
four months jail?

The vampire stunt?
That was negligent arson.

Well, it was more
of a prank gone wrong.

The knife was real.

but it was used as a prop.

Was the fire a prop?

The blood was fake.

How is that relevant?

Petty misdemeanor.

Plus fourth-degree


Uh, but ya, uh, drop
the property damage?

Keep the weapons charge.

Uh...14 months jail.

[Laughs] 16.

Mm. 16.

Plus fines TBD.

Plus fines TBD.


[Elevator whirs, rumbles]


Oh, hey, look at that.

Ugh. Finally.

Mm. 20 minutes.

[Elevator bell dings]

Pleasure doing business
with ya.


See you next week
for the last three.

[Elevator doors close]

Legal services
for the other half?

So, my brother's
little problem?

Eh, his record
will be cleaner

than "Doris Day's
Greatest Hits."

Catch ya on the flip-flop.


70 hours is a breeze.
Trust me.

Think of all the good
that you'll do.

good talking to you.

I gotta jump.

Saul Goodman,
speedy justice for you.

Miss Hower.
Hey, have I got good news.

I had to strap on the old armor
and do some jousting, but --

It's, uh, what knights used to
do back in...olden times.

Uh, you know what?
I'll call you back.

Mr. Varga,
long time no see.

Get in.

Uh [Sighs]
your timing isn't perfect.

Um, I'm a little swamped
right now.

We're just going
for a ride or...
