Breaking Bad (2008–2013): Season 3, Episode 1 - No Más - full transcript

Skyler goes through with her plans to divorce Walt. Jesse finishes rehab.

We interrupt our scheduled

to bring you breaking news.

Good afternoon.

In the last several minutes,

KOB has received dozens of reports

of what appears to be
a crashed aircraft--

possibly two aircraft--

on Albuquerque's east side.

As of yet, details are scarce,

but callers describe witnessing
an explosion overhead,

followed by falling debris.
Visible now toward...

...crash investigators with the
National Transportation Safety Board

are expected on-site as
early as this evening.

But officials warn that,

with a debris field
of this magnitude,

the investigation and the
clean-up may well stretch--

...are now saying
that the Boeing 737

was being re-routed or vectored

through the airspace,

which is standard procedure,

according to a
spokesman for the FAA.

The eight-seat King Air 350

was a charter flight

operating out of
Saint George, Utah,

bound for Amarillo, Texas.

It sounded like hail.

Like heavy hailstones.

It was just, um...

bump-bump-bump all
over the neighborhood.

...indicating that the final
death toll now stands at 167.

..67 muertos--


This mid-air collision
has left many wondering

how such an accident
could take place

in a system with
so many safeguards.

Allegations continue
that the collision

which brought down Flight 5

was caused by improper
air traffic control.

The bombshell confirmation
out of Oklahoma City today,

as the FAA confirmed,
it was, indeed,

a lone air traffic
controller's fateful mistake...

...que el nombre del hombre
es Donald Margolis. Donald Margolis,

a 19-year veteran of the FAA's

Air Route Traffic Control
Center in Albuquerque.

...Margolis recently
returned to work

after a five-week absence,

which was due to, quote,
a personal loss.

While it's now known

that Margolis had recently
lost a daughter... a drug overdose
a month before.

His troubled daughter Jane Margolis,
aged 26,

apparently had a long history
of substance abuse.

And friends of the family say the
death of his only child

hit Margolis particularly hard.

Coming as it did little more
than a month before,

many are questioning the timing

of his return to work,

and are wondering how much
blame truly lies

with those who let this
grieving father--

No. No, no.

I usually open

with "So sorry you're here."

Where would you like to begin?

I really just need this
quick and easy, you know?

As quick as something
like this can be.


Is that mutual?

Does your husband
go along with that?

Does he know?

Well, I mean,

he certainly knows
we're separated, so--

Has he moved out?

We're in the process
of moving him out.

Yeah. Today, hopefully.

And in the meantime, my--

my son and my daughter

and I are staying with my sister.

So you've moved out?

Well, yes, just temporarily,

only so he could get his things.

That was supposed
to happen last week,

but then came the crash, and--

Oh, God.

You weren't one of the-- Right--

Yeah. Right beneath
the flight path.

And, um...

uh, we had debris land in our yard

and all of our neighborhood,
so-- Mmm. Terrible.

Yeah. Apparently, even, um...

you know, parts of bodies,

and so I certainly
couldn't bring myself to--

So awful. I know.

Anyway, I was certainly not ready
to move back, but it's time.

And, um,...

I'm sure we're driving my sister
and her husband up a wall.

Well, you definitely want
to maintain residency

in your actual home.

It just puts you in
a better position

in regards to custody.

Two children, you said?

Yes. Holly here,

and then I have a
son in high school--

Walter Junior.

They need to stay with me.


How long have you been married?

Sixteen years.

And it's not an apartment.
It's a house that you live in?

Mm-hmm. Do you own outright?

Do you have a mortgage? Yes.

There's definitely a mortgage.
We have, um...

maybe 15 years on it.

What about other debts or assets?

Do you feel you have
a good understanding

of you and your husband's
financial situation?

Is your husband employed?
You know what? Here's the thing.

I-- I'm really not looking

for any, sort of, uh,
loopholes or-- um--

I don't know-- just-- No.

No loopholes.

I just intend

that every one of my clients

get a full and honest accounting

of what it is they owe

and what it is they own.

To that end, I say

let's leave no stone unturned.

You'd be amazed what I've seen
partners hide from one another.

Hey, Walt?

Hey. Hey, buddy, there you are.

Listen, I, uh-- You know, well--

It's, uh...time.

The s---tiest week since 9/11,
okay? Bar none.

Yeah, this is it.
Hands down, we're living it.

I mean, I speak with some authority

because we definitely
had some s---ty weeks

in the past few months, you know?

But this here, I mean,
call, you know--

call freakin' the Guinness
Book of World Records--

Call freakin'-
Am I talking too much?

Am I? I am, right? I am.
I know. Look, look.

But this situation between
you and, uh-- uh--

I'm not asking, by the way.

Okay? It's none of my business.

I do not want to get in
the middle of you two.

I'm just saying-- Listen,
listen-- Okay?

You beat a little tactical retreat.


And regroup.

And then-- bong.

You know, absence makes the--

I'm pulling for you,
you know? I'm pulling--

Whoa, whoa. No heavy lifting.

I got it. No, it's okay.

I got it.


What do you got in there,
cinder blocks?

Half a million in cash.

That's the spirit.

I got it. I got it.


Who's here for self-improvement?

Come on, give me a show of hands.

Who among you is here hoping

they can actively
improve who they are?


See, that's your first mistake.

You should be here to
learn self-acceptance.

Hey, honey, you, uh--

you want another waffle?

I still got the iron out.

I could cut up some bananas.

Hi, you're reached Walt, Skyler,
Flynn, and Holly.

Please leave us a message.

Uh, hey. Hello, everybody.

Good morning.
I was just checking in

and thought I'd pass along

the current contact information.

I mean, certainly, you can always
reach me on my cell.

I've always got that on me.

But in terms of a mailing address,

I'm here at The Beachcomber.

And you know what?
It's actually very nice.

It's very pleasant.

Not as high end as the Oakwood,

but, you know, not as corporate--

Oh, hey, would you please just-

Hey, Dad. It's me.

No, I'm not okay.

I don't know what the h- -
is going on.

Nobody's telling me jack s- -
around here.

Hey, Flynn. What-- Whatever.

I-- I don't even care anymore.

Can-- Can you just give
me a ride to school?

I'll take you to school.

Yeah. No.

I-- I'm ready now.

Flynn, I'm taking you to school.

All right. I'm here.

See you soon.

May I have your attention, please?

As all of you know,

last week our city suffered
a terrible tragedy,

one that none of us
will ever forget,

which is why today we're
going to take

a little time out of our schedule

to gather in the gym and talk.

I just find it,

you know, really--

really hard to concentrate

because of all the horrors,

you know, we perceived.

It just really gets
inside your brain, and--

In college they have
this thing where,

if your roommate kills himself--

like, if you come home

and find him hanging in
the closet or whatever--

it's basically, like,
an automatic "A" for you.

And I just think that that
kind of compassion is--

is something to-- Okay.

Thank you, Barry.

Who wants to go next?


No judgments, guys.

Just feelings.

You can say anything and everything

that's on your mind.


There you go, honey.

I just keep asking myself--

Honey, could you please stand up?

Just keep asking myself,
"Why did this happen?"

I mean, if there's a God and all,

why does he allow all
those innocent people

to die for no reason?

Okay, can we just keep
it secular, honey?

Anyhow, I haven't really
been sleeping much.

Does anyone else have that?

I just keep hearing that-
that sound.

That boom.

It just plays over
and over in my head

like it won't ever stop.

Thank you, sweetheart.

Is there anyone else?

Uh-- --

My neighbor, he heard the crash,

and he ran out to his front yard,

and he found, like, this seat--

you know, like, an airline seat.

Like one you have on an airliner?

Well, anyway, the seat was standing

perfectly upright
in his front yard,

right next to his Sea-Doos--

because, like, he has Sea-Doos--


there was still a pair of legs

buckled into them.

Human legs.

J---- H. C-----.

You okay?

Yeah. Sorry. I-- um--

I was just moved.

Maybe we should hear
from the faculty.

Certainly this tragedy

didn't only affect our students.

Mr. White, would you
like to say something?

And by the way, welcome back. Hmm?

It's so good to have you back.


I guess what I-- I would--

Sorry. Sorry.

I guess what I would
want to say is...

to look on the bright side.

First of all, nobody on
the ground was killed.

And that-- I mean,
an incident like this

over a populated urban center--

That right there,
that's-- that's just gotta be

some minor miracle, so--

Plus, neither plane was full.

You know, the-- the 737 was--

was what? Uh,

maybe two-thirds full, I believe.

Right? Yes?

Or maybe even three-quarters full.

Well, at any rate,

what you're left
with casualty-wise is

just the 50th worst air disaster.

Actually, tied for 50th.

There are, in truth,

53 crashes throughout history

that are just as bad or worse--


Has anybody--

anybody hear of Tenerife?


In 1977, two fully loaded 747s

crashed into each
other on Tenerife.

Does anybody know how big a 747 is?

I mean, it's way bigger than a 737.

And we're talking
about two of them.

Nearly 600 people died on Tenerife.

Doesn't any of you even
remember it at all?

Any of you? I doubt it.

You know why?

It's because...

people move on.

They just move on.
And we will, too.

We will move on,
and we will get past this

because that is what
human beings do.

We survive.

And, uh...

We survive, and-- and we--

we overcome.


We survive.

We survive, and--

Thank you.


Thank you.



Hey, how's your Aunt Marie doing?

Fine, I guess. Oh.

You make sure you say hello
to her for me, will you?

Why don't you just come inside?

It's your house.

No, I--

He's gone.

Hey, Flynn!

Tricks. It's an expression.

How are you?

Why do you gotta
treat him like this?

Why you gotta be like this?

Why can't you just talk,
even? Hey, hey, hey.

Cool down.

Okay. Okay.

Out of the mouths of babes, huh?


You know, try not to
hold it against him.

You know, I mean,

the poor kid, he's probably just

dying of curiosity.

You know, and I guess it would be

natural for him to wonder.

I mean, he's probably
just wondering, you know,

what is it that could have
gone so wrong-- Marie.

...that my mother
would leave-- Marie.

I can't help you get
through this, Skyler,

you know, if you won't tell me

what it is that Walt did.
Well, you know what?

I don't-- I don't remember
asking you, all right?

Well, I think that's-
So if you want to be supportive,

...the reason you're stuck.
you could be supportive without prying,

that would be really great-
Prying, okay.

...and so-- Well, prying's a
strong word, but I don't--


It's that...

voice inside your head.

It's that sneaky,
rat-bastard, 24/7 voice.

You guys know what
I'm talking about.

That voice that tells you
you're not good enough.

Not good enough for what?
Not good enough to...

be what, President
of the United States?

Well, okay, so maybe
you're not that good.

But now are you good enough

to deserve your share of
basic human happiness?

Are you good enough to be okay

with who and what you are?

I say yes.

But it doesn't matter what I say.

It's your voice,

which means you're the
only one that hears it,

which means that you're the
only one that can fight it.



we never hear from you.

What's going on?

You can tell me I'm full of s---.

It's okay. I don't mind.

Just-- Come on.

Let us in on it.

So, like, what makes
you the expert?

I don't think I ever
said I was that.

Yeah, but you're the one
sitting here, right?

Telling us thus and so,

be happy, forgive yourself,
blah, blah, blah.

Have you ever really hurt anybody?

I don't just mean disappointed
your mother or whatever,

but did you...

ever really...

hurt someone?

I killed my daughter.

It was July 18...

which is my birthday.

July 18, 1992.

I was high on cocaine,

and I was drunk.

Cocaine wasn't an issue

because I had bought myself 2 grams

the night before as
a birthday present.

I had plenty left.

But I was out of vodka.

And this is in Portsmouth,

where instead of selling
liquor in the supermarkets,

they have these ABC stores
which close at 5 p.m.

And right then it was, like, 4:42.

So I'm arguing with my wife--

"Come on, go to the ABC for me.

"It's my birthday.

"Come on.

They're not gonna sell it to me."

She's saying, "No, no."

So I'm p---ed,
and the clock is ticking,

so I jump in my truck.


my 6-year-old daughter...

She's playing at the
end of the driveway.


How do you not hate yourself?

I did hate myself...

for a long time.

But it didn't stop me from...

drinking and getting high.

It just made it that much worse.

Self-hatred, guilt,

it accomplishes nothing.

It just stands in the way.

Stands in the way of what?

True change.

Skyler, hi.

Is this a good time to talk?

Yeah. Come in, please.



Do you want to start?


Why-- Why are you doing this?

Why are you even thinking this way?

Is it to punish me?

I am not punishing you, Walt.

This is punitive is what this is.

We are happily married.

I am happily married.

I am happy.

We're just--

I love you, Skyler,

and I would do anything for you.

Would you even consider--

I mean, J----!

You come in here,

and you wave these
papers in my face,

when there's a whole other

entire side to this thing.

There's your side,
and there's my side.

And you haven't heard my side yet.

You haven't heard any of it at all.

You're a drug dealer.

No. What-- How--



How else could you possibly
make that kind of money?


That Pinkman kid.


Oh, my God, Walt.


It's methamphetamine.

But I-- I'm--

I manufacture.

I am not a dealer.


Per se.

It doesn't--

No, Skyler.

Listen to me, Skyler. No.

Listen. No.

There are a lot of
angles to this, okay?

It's complicated,
all right? So please, let's--

Please, let's just sit back down,

and we'll talk it through.

I'm gonna make you a deal, Walt.

I won't tell Hank,

and I won't tell your
children or anybody else.

Nobody will hear it from me,

but only if you grant
me this divorce

and stay out of our lives.

No, Skyler. I mean it.

Now let me the h-
out of here before I throw up.

Your windshield's broken.


A little friction in
the marriage right now.

Strictly temporary.

We're just--

just taking a little break.

Uh, that's you over there.

Listen, um, money.

Saul has got it for you,

and so as so as you're
feeling better--

I'm better.

You're better.


What? The rehab? It helped?

Yeah. I'm done using.

That's excellent. That's--

That's very good, Jesse.

Boy-- Very good.

You know, um...

in spite of how bad things got,

it really could be looked at

like a wake-up call for th of us.

I mean, you know, just to get our--

our lives back together again

and on the straight and narrow.

You been following
this airplane crash?


You know it was Jane's dad

who accidentally
crashed them together?

Because he was so torn up?

Okay, look, let me stop you

right there, all right?

You are not responsible for this--

not in any way, shape,
or form, all right?

Now, I-- I am very
up-to-date on this thing,

probably far more than you are,

and there are-- there are
many factors at play there.


For instance,

there's some sort
of collision radar

on the jet that may not
have been working properly.

Now, that's public record.
You can look that up.

And the whole system

is run on-- on 1960s technology.


No, really...

I blame the government.

You either run from things,

or you face them, Mr. White.

And what exactly does that mean?

I learned it in rehab.

It's all about accepting
who you really are.

I accept who I am.

And who are you?

I'm the bad guy.

Is the food to your satisfaction?

Very much.

It's good to see you again.

May I?

I have an offer that I think
will be of interest to you.

I actually am not here to--

I'm here because I owe you
the courtesy and respect

to tell you this personally.

I'm done.

It has nothing to do
with you personally.

I find you extraordinarily

and I appreciate the
way you do business.

I'm just...

making a change in my life

is what it is, and I'm--

I'm at some-
something of a crossroads.

It has brought me to a realization.

I am not a criminal.

No offense to any people who are.


this is not me.

I'd like you to hear my offer,

It won't change my mind. I'm sorry.

$3 million

for three months of your time.

Three months, then out.

3 million?

May I take this as a yes?

I have money.

I have more money than
know how to spend.

What I don't have is my family.

The answer is still no.

Enjoy your meal.

Thank you.

What the h--- is going on in there?
