When Walter vomits outside the RV, he is sick off-screen. However, when we see the whole screen, the ground is clean and dusty. See more »

My name is Walter Hartwell White. I live at 308 Negra Arroyo Lane, Albuquerque, New Mexico. 87104. To all law enforcement entities, this is not an admission of guilt. I am speaking to my family now.

Skyler, you are the love of my life, I hope you know that. Walter junior, you're my big man. There are... there are going to be some things, things that you'll come to learn about me in the next few days. I just want you to know that, no matter how it may look...

The version of the pilot episode that was broadcast on IFC (Independent Film Channel) was uncensored and complete uncut. It was around one minute longer than the original aired version on AMC, who censored for example naked breasts via soft focus lens (when Walter watches Jesse escaping through the window Jesse's girlfriend is naked and throws his clothes out).

I've heard a lot about this show from numerous friends, and reading multiple times online that it's among the greatest shows ever, if not the greatest. This first episode already has me hooked. Walter White has already shown that he's a mad genius. I'm intrigued by the Jesse Pinkman character, as I see a lot of potential for a lot of character development on his part. It was a great first episode.
