INT. BAR
We pick up where the previous episode left off. Walt’s drink
sits on the counter, undrank. BARTENDER picks up the glass.
BARTENDER
I guess he wasn’t thirsty after
all.
FOUR POLICE OFFICERS enter the bar, weapons drawn.
POLICE OFFICER 1
Where is he?
Just then, WALTER WHITE exits the bathroom, zipping his
trousers. He freezes.
WALTER WHITE
Oh shit.
Walt runs out the back door, grabbing his Heisenberg hat
from a coat rack on his way out.
POLICE OFFICER 1
After him!
The cops run after Walt. The bartender shrugs and drinks
Walt’s Dimple Pinch.
EXT. BAR - NEW HAMPSHIRE
The cops scan the area. Walt is nowhere to be seen.
POLICE OFFICER 2
Damn! He got away.
POLICE OFFICER 3
Not so fast. As you know, I’m not
only a police officer, but also a
Native American. I can use my
Native American tracking abilities
to track him.
Police Officer 3 stares deep into the distance, as if
channeling the spirits of his ancestors.
POLICE OFFICER 3
There.
Police Officer 3 points to a trail of footprints in the
snow. They look up to see Walt disappear into the forest.
The officers look to each other, then make chase.
2.
EXT. FOREST - CHASE MONTAGE
-Walt runs, desperate.
-The police officers follow deliberately, methodically,
following the footprints.
-Walt’s running grows labored. He’s wheezing.
-Police Officer 3 smells the snow and nods.
-Walt trips and falls face down into the snow. He struggles
to get up, and limps on.
-The police officers pick up their pace.
-Walt stops and vomits blood.
WALT
No, no. Not like this. It can’t end
like this. I am better than a
couple of two-bit county mountain
sheriffs.
Walt hears the officers drawing nearer. He sobs.
WALT
It can’t end like this. I’m
Heisenberg. I’ve done too much to
go down like this.
A DEER perks up and stares at Walt. Walt stops sobbing and
looks at the deer. CU deep into the deer’s eyes. The moment
is cut short by the sound of the police.
POLICE OFFICER 1 (OFF SCREEN)
Come on out, Walt. It’s over.
The cops wait on the other side of some thick brush.
POLICE OFFICER 1
(quiet, to fellow officers)
You have the shot, you take it.
Understand? I don’t want to take
any chances.
WALT (OFF SCREEN)
I’m coming out!
Long, pregnant beat. The bushes rustle. The Heisenberg hat
peaks through the foliage.
3.
POLICE OFFICER 1
NOW!
The officers open fire. After the smoke clears, we hear a
body collapse in the bushes with a dull thud into the snow.
POLICE OFFICER 1
We got him!
Cocky,
Police Officer 1 approaches.
POLICE OFFICER 1
You know, Heisenberg. I’m a bit of
a chemist myself. With the reward
you’re worth, I just turned lead-
Police
Officer 1 blows the smoke from his gun barrel.
POLICE OFFICER 1
-into gold.
Police
Officer 1 lifts the Heisenberg Hat.
POLICE OFFICER 1
What the?
REVEAL
the dead, bullet-ridden body of the deer in the
brush.
POLICE OFFICER 1
(to the heavens)
DAMN YOU HEISENBERG!
INT. WALT’S CABIN
Walt enters and drops to his knees. He laughs maniacally,
then collapses.
OPENING CREDITS
INT. TODD’S SHACK - NIGHT
Todd sits in bed, wearing flannel pajamas, reading an Archie
comic. He chuckles.
TODD
Oh, Jughead, you sure love to eat.
Todd is interrupted by a knock at the door.
4.
TODD
Who is it?
WHISPERING FEMALE VOICE (OFF SCREEN)
Just open the door. I shouldn’t be
seen here.
TODD
Well, I’m not supposed to open the
door for strangers. I’ll have to
ask my uncle.
WHISPERING FEMALE VOICE (OFF SCREEN)
No! Don’t ask your uncle. Um. Here.
A note slides under the door. Todd opens it. It
reads
"Lydia." Todd opens the door.
TODD
Gosh Ms. Lydia, You should’ve said
so!
Lydia shushes him.
LYDIA
I could feel the way you were
looking at me when we had our backs
to each other at the diner earlier
today.
TODD
Sorry ma’am. I knew I wasn’t
supposed to look at you, but I
stole a few glances because you’re
so pretty. I hope the waitress
didn’t tell the cops. We can always
kill her if-
LYDIA
Shut up and kiss me, Todd.
Todd gives Lydia a peck on the cheek. Lydia gives
Todd
a
look of confusion.
LYDIA
Are you sure that’s all you want to
do to me?
Lydia drops her knee-length trench coat to reveal
nothing
but sexy lingerie underneath. She looks smoking hot. She
gives Todd a seductive look.
5.
TODD
Whoa Ms. Lydia. I don’t know what
you think this is, but I’m saving
myself for marriage under the eyes
of our lord and savior, Jesus
Christ.
Lydia approaches Todd. She brings her mouth in close to his
neck. She brushes her lips up his skin until she
reaches his
ear, then whispers into it.
LYDIA
So marry me then.
TODD
Gee willickers! OK!
Todd gets down on one knee.
TODD
Ms. Lydia, will you marry me?
LYDIA
Yes.
They hug.
INT. JESSE’S HOUSE - NIGHT
SKINNY PETE and BADGER sit on the couch, playing
Mario
Kart.
SKINNY PETE
Yo, I’m not saying Dumb and Dumber
is a better film than Schindler’s
List. I just enjoy it more.
BADGER
Yeah, I guess Schindler’s list is
kind of a bummer. It’s, like, a
good breakup movie.
(beat)
Hey, I haven’t seen Jesse in a
while.
SKINNY PETE
Yeah, maybe we should go find him.
He might be in trouble. Friends
don’t abandon each other. That’s
what Dumb and Dumber teaches you.
6.
BADGER
Right on. Such a powerful film. OK,
let’s go! After this match.
Skinny Pete and Badger return their attention to the game
with a new sense of purpose.
INT. TODD’S SHACK - NIGHT
A PRIEST
officiates Todd and Lydia’s wedding in Todd’s
bedroom.
PRIEST
Do you, Lydia, take this man, Todd,
to be your lawfully wedded husband?
LYDIA
I do.
PRIEST
And do you, Todd, take this woman,
Lydia, to be your lawfully wedded
wife?
TODD
Aw, shucks. You bet I do!
PRIEST
You may kiss the bride.
Todd and
Lydia share a loving kiss, then Lydia
pushes
Todd
onto the
bed.
LYDIA
Now do you want your first time to
be gentle? or rough?
The priest awkwardly shuffles out.
TODD
Haha it’s your first time too,
isn’t it?
LYDIA
Of course it is, darl-wait. I just
remembered that I have a daughter.
I totally forgot. I haven’t seen
her in a long time. I hope she’s
OK.
7.
TODD
Hey, you mean we have a daughter.
Todd and Lydia kiss and embrace to begin their love-making
session. They’re interrupted by gun shots outside. Todd
throws himself on top of Lydia. Bullets spray through the
windows and punch holes in the wall.
EXT. NEO NAZI COMPOUND - NIGHT
Skinny Pete and Badger stand with smoking machine guns. JACK
WELKER falls to his knees, then face first to the ground
dead. REVEAL the rest of the neo-Nazi gang dead
around
them.
SKINNY PETE
Yo I feel just like Schindler
killing Nazis!
BADGER
Right on, man, except Schindler
didn’t kill any Nazis.
SKINNY PETE
Oh right. Well, I feel just like
John Rambo, if he was in
Schindler’s List.
They fist bump.
BADGER
Hey Jesse! Where you at?
SKINNY PETE
Jesse? I don’t think he’s here
dawg.
BADGER
He’s gotta be here, look, Find My
Friends says he should be here.
Badger holds up an iPhone, the GPS says Jesse
is
nearby.
SKINNY PETE
Yo, that only means his cell phone
is here.
BADGER
Oh shit. You’re right. Well we
should find his phone and give it
back to him for when we do find
him.
8.
SKINNY PETE
Right on.
They follow the map. to Jesse’s underground jail cell.
BADGER
Oh, it’s cool. He already has his
phone.
(to Jesse)
Yo dude. We came to rescue you.
Jesse is lying on his back, eyes open, but motionless.
He
doesn’t
respond.
SKINNY PETE
Jesse.
BADGER
Jesse.
SKINNY PETE
Jesse.
BADGER
Yo, Jesse.
JESSE
Just leave me.
SKINNY PETE
No way, man. We’re hear to rescue
you, dawg.
JESSE
You can’t rescue me. There’s
nowhere for me to escape to.
Everyone I love is dead.
BADGER
No, come on man. What about, what
about-
SKINNY PETE
What about the mail man? Don’t you
love getting mail?
Jesse
doesn’t respond.
BADGER
What about me and Skinny Pete?
Don’t you love us?
Jesse
doesn’t respond.
9.
BADGER
Yeah I don’t blame you.
SKINNY PETE
Yo, what about Brock?
Jesse
perks up.
JESSE
(whispered)
Brock.
SKINNY PETE
Yeah, man. That little boy
needs a
dad, yo.
JESSE
You’re right!
Jesse
jumps up and grabs the bars on
the ceiling.
JESSE
(screaming)
BITCH!
In one swift motion he screams, swings his body, kicks
open
the gate and launches himself outside.
JESSE
Let’s get out of here. There’s a
little boy who needs me.
They run for the car.
BADGER
Shotgun!
SKINNY PETE
Aw, no fair! I killed more Nazis,
dawg!
INT. WALT’S CABIN - NIGHT
Walt lies face down on the floor, face to the screen. His
eyes are half open and glazed over. Drool drips from his
mouth.
We do an artsy time-lapse of night transitioning to day,
camera locked on Walt’s face. Time returns to normal and
Walt springs to life, with a big, desperate sudden inhale.
Walt gets up, frantic.
10.
WALT
What am I doing here? I can’t just
sit here while the DEA destroys my
family, and that BASTARD Elliot
Schwartz ruins my legacy! I have to
go back to Albuquerque.
Walt runs out the door. Beat. Walt re-enters the cabin.
WALT
Think Walt, think. I don’t have a
car. I can’t hitchhike, everyone in
the country knows my face by now.
No, transportation is out. I guess
I could run there.
Walt chuckles. He stuffs his hands in his pocket to think.
Wait, what’s this? Walt quizzically pulls something from his
pocket. It’s a small bag containing his blue meth. He eyes
it.
WALT
I could run there.
Walt tears apart the cabin, emptying draws and cabinets onto
the floor.
WALT
There’s gotta be a pipe or
something in here somewhere. COME
ON! Isn’t this supposed to be a
cabin?
Walt’s eyes notice a zen garden on the night stand.
Quick cuts:
-Walt forms a meth pipe mold out of aluminum foil
-Walt stokes the fire in the wood-burning stove
-Walt carefully pours the zen garden sand into his mold
-Walt holds the mold in the fire using the stove shovel.
-Walt takes it out and tries to pick it up, burning his hand
-Walt puts gloves on
-Walt juggles the mold from hand to hand as he runs outside
with it.
-Walt throws the mold in the snow. It sizzles
11.
-Walt opens the mold. He smiles. REVEAL a perfect meth pipe.
Back inside, Walt smashes the meth into small pieces. He
pours it into the pipe.
WALT
Well, here goes nothing.
Walt flicks a lighter. Nothing happens.
WALT
Come on.
Walt tries again. Nothing. He shakes it.
WALT
Empty. That figures.
Walt tosses the lighter and takes out a book of matches. He
opens it. It’s empty.
WALT
Great.
Walt walks over to the wood burning stove, but it’s burned
itself out.
WALT
(frustrated)
I guess I’ll just have to do
EVERYTHING with science.
Walt walks outside. He looks up to the sky. He holds the
meth pipe up to his mouth. He takes his glasses off and
holds them up to the sun, focusing a beam of light on the
pipe. It crackles and smokes. Walt inhales deeply.
Close-up on Walt’s eye. It dilates wide. The screen begins
to stutter. We hear a deep, repeating bass, like a
synthesizer heart beat.
Crash zoom out. We hear a sound like all the air being
sucked from the room. There’s a half-beat of quiet and
stillness. Walt lets out a primal scream.
WALT
HEISENBERG!
He tears his shirt open. Walt runs into the house. The money
barrel bursts through the wall. The hole reveals Walt
screaming behind it. He runs outside and begins pushing the
barrel.
12.
INT. LEWIS’S BEDROOM
FLYNN (WALTER JR) sits on the bed.
FLYNN
I just don’t understand why he
would do something like that.
REVEAL LEWIS, black, sitting on a bean bag. You assumed he
was white, didn’t you. Racist.
LEWIS
You’re dad did a lot of bad things,
Flynn. No one is denying that. But
let’s not lose sight of why he did
them: for you.
FLYNN
But he hurt so many people! He
killed my Uncle Hank!
Lewis gets up and puts his hand on Flynn’s and
looks
into
his
eyes.
LEWIS
Hey. Who is to say what’s right and
what’s wrong in this crazy world we
live in? What’s important is that
your dad loves you.
FLYNN
No, he’s a monster!
LEWIS
We all make choices every day.
Sometimes our decisions hurt others
and there’s nothing we can do about
it. Can you honestly say you’ve
never hurt anyone, Flynn?
FLYNN
(sighs)
No. I-I can’t. Yesterday I
accidentally ate Tom Faiella’s
lunch because it was in the same
packaging as mine. Then I couldn’t
give him my peanut-butter and jelly
sandwich because he’s allergic to
nuts, so he just went hungry.
LEWIS
See? You’re no saint. Family is the
most important thing in the world.
13.
LEWIS
If we lose that, we’ve got nothing,
Flynn.
FLYNN
You’re right, Lewis, and hey, call
me Walter Jr.
LEWIS
I love you as a friend, Walter Jr.
WALTER JR (FORMERLY FLYNN)
I love you as a friend, too, Lewis.
They
share a warm hug.
WALTER JR (FORMERLY FLYNN)
Now let’s get some breakfast! Do
you have eggs in your house? or
pancake mix? Or bacon? Or-or
cereal?
LEWIS
(chuckling)
Let’s go see what’s in the
cupboard.
EXT.
STREET - DAY
Walt
is running down the street at warp speed,
rolling
the
money barrel. The camera is locked on Walt’s face. We see
the landscape changing behind him. The synthetic bass
heartbeat booms.
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO VERMONT sign
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO NEW YORK sign
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO PENNSYLVANIA sign.
Walt looks down at his watch. He snarls, then picks up the
pace, double-time.
INT. A-1 CAR WASH
SKYLER robotically processes a line of customers.
SKYLER
(monotone, vacant)
Thank you have an A-1 day. Thank
you have an A-1 day. Thank you have
an A-1 day.
14.
TWO DEA AGENTS enter and get in line. With only one CUSTOMER
between the agents and Skyler, she desperately tries to
stall.
SKYLER
Would you like to try our special
A-1 Wax-1 option?
CUSTOMER
No thanks. Just the wash, please.
SKYLER
Um. OK. Well, just this week we
have a special on vacuuming.
CUSTOMER
How much does that cost?
SKYLER
Huh. Let me look that up for you!
Skyler pulls out a binder and slowly flips through
it.
She
whistles like she’s being nonchalant.
CUSTOMER
You know what? Just give me the
wash.
SKYLER
OK, but allow me to tell you about
all of the lovely beverages we have
in our soda machine over there.
First, there’s Coca-Cola. That’s
always a classic. I guess that’s
why they call it Coca-Cola Classic.
If I had to describe the taste I
would say it has a very strong,
cola-ness to it.
CUSTOMER
Just the wash.
The
DEA Agents glare at Skyler. She begins to
crack.
SKYLER
Thank you. Have an A-1 day.
The
customer leaves. The agents approach.
DEA AGENT 1
Mrs. White. Your court dates been
set and it’s today. You’re gonna
have to come with us.
15.
SKYLER
(desperate)
Can I interest you in one of our
many detailing options?
DEA AGENT 2
Don’t make this difficult Mrs.
White.
SKYLER
We also have a range of air
fresheners. Everything from pine to
new car smell.
DEA AGENT 1
We don’t have time for this, Mrs.
White. Come on. We’re going.
SKYLER
I am NOT wishing you an A-1 day.
The
agents lead the sobbing Skyler out of the
store.
EXT. STREET - DAY
Walt continues to run, pushing the barrel. The synthetic
bass heartbeat booms.
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO OHIO sign
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO INDIANA sign
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO ILLINOIS sign
Walt coughs. He slows down. Walt heaves for air and lurches
to a stop. The synth bass peters out.
WALT
NO! NO! NO!
Walt pulls out his bag of meth and his homemade pipe.
WALT
Come on! Come on!
Quick cuts: Walt fills the pipe, lights it and takes a big
hit. The background zooms out around Walt’s head. His pupils
grow again. He looks so focused it’s scary. The synthetic
bass heartbeat returns double time.
Walt roars, then turns and punches a mature oak tree so hard
that it shatters and falls. A mother across the street sees
this, grabs her child and flees.
16.
Walt watches them then turns his head to the road.
He
takes
off running and rolling the barrel.
INT. LEWIS’S HOUSE
Walter Jr
and Lewis are eating breakfast.
WALTER JR
Sometimes I like multi-grain toast,
but sometimes I prefer plain, old
whole-wheat toast.
LEWIS
I don’t really have an opinion, but
I love that you do.
WALTER JR
But for french toast, you gotta go
with a nice thick piece of french
bread, or challah.
LEWIS
Challah. Now that’s one thing we
can agree on.
They
fist
bump.
LEWIS
Hey Walter Jr, do you have a crush
on any girls at school?
WALTER JR
The only girl I have a crush on is
Aunt Jemimah! I’d like to put her
in my mouth, if you know what I’m
talking about!
Walt
raises his hand for a fist bump. Lewis awkwardly
reciprocates. They’re interrupted by a loud pounding on
the
front door.
DEA AGENT 1 (Off Screen)
(through a megaphone)
Come on out, Walter Jr We have you
surrounded.
WALTER JR
(to Lewis)
What? That has to be a mistake. I
didn’t do anything.
Lewis shrugs.
17.
WALTER JR
I’m gonna go str-straighten this
out.
Walter Jr exits through the front door. He’s tackled and
handcuffed.
WALTER JR
Wha? But, but I didn’t do anything!
DEA AGENT 1
Walter Jr, you’re under arrest on
charges of money-laundering
relating to the Web site
SaveWalterWhite.com. You have the
right to an attorney, anything you
say-
The agents voice fades out as we see reality dawn on Walter
Jr’s face.
EXT. STREET - DAY
Walt continues to run, pushing the barrel. The synthetic
bass heartbeat booms. His clothes are all frayed and falling
apart.
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO MISSOURI sign
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO KANSAS sign
-Walt passes a WELCOME TO COLORADO sign
WALT
I’M-A COMIN’ HOME! WOO!
INT. JESSE’S CAR
Jesse drives with BROCK in the passenger seat. They pass a
WELCOME TO COLORADO sign.
JESSE
So things are gonna be a little
different now, without your mom.
But I want you to know that I’m
gonna do my best to be the best dad
I can be for you.
Brock sits in silence.
18.
JESSE
Or, dad sounds a little weird.
Maybe call me Uncle. Uncle Jesse.
Jesse
chuckles.
JESSE
I guess you’re a little young for
that reference.
BROCK
Where are we going?
JESSE
We’re going somewhere where we can
make a fresh start. We’re going to
(whispered)
Alaska.
BROCK
What are we gonna do in Alaska.
JESSE
I don’t know. We can be salmon
fisherman. We could hunt moose. We
could build log cabins. Any of that
sound fun to you?
BROCK
No.
JESSE
Well, I don’t know. They probably
have normal jobs up their, too. The
important thing is that we get a
fresh start where no one wants to
hurt us.
BROCK
What about bears?
JESSE
OK. No humans want to hurt us.
The
blur
of meth-powered Walt and his money barrel
fly
by,
going the other direction.
JESSE
The hell was that?
19.
INT. HOLLY’S ROOM
Holly lies in her crib, doing baby stuff.
Suddenly, the door is blown off it’s hinges
into the room. A
swarm of DEA agents surround Holly, weapons
drawn and aimed
at her.
DEA AGENT 2
FREEZE MOTHERFUCKER!
He approaches the crib.
DEA AGENT 2
Holly White, you are under arrest
for being an accomplice in the
criminal activity of your family
members, Walter White, Skylar
White, and Walter Jr White.
DEA Agent 2 takes out tiny, baby-sized hand
cuffs and cuffs
Holly. Holly cries.
DEA AGENT 2
Oh yeah, you’re gonna be doing a
lot of crying in federal prison.
He picks her up, puts her in a police stroller and the
closes a set of bars over the opening.
EXT. ROAD
Walt stands before a WELCOME TO ALBUQUERQUE sign. His
clothes, shredded from his cross-country run, disintegrate
and fall off, leaving Walt in his tighty-whities (or, as I
like to call them, Walter Whities).
WALT
Now to take care of some business.
Walt rubs his hands together in anticipation. REVEAL a GUY
just off-screen, standing next to a puddle of oil and a car.
GUY
Oh great, just what I need. I have
all this oil and no barrel to keep
it in. Hey, buddy. How much you
want for that barrel?
WALT
Um. The barrel is not for sale.
20.
GUY
Aw, come on. I’ll give you my car.
Walt
sorta considers this.
WALT
No, no. It’s really not for sale.
GUY
I’ll throw in my clothes. You look
like you could use a good, flannel
shirt.
WALT
Sorry, the answer is still no.
GUY
Alright, you twisted my arm. I’ll
throw in my assault rifle. It’s in
the trunk of the car. That’s my
final offer.
Walt
stops in his tracks.
WALT
Did you say assault rifle?
CUT TO: Walt is driving away in the car, wearing
Guy’s
clothes. Guy stands behind the car in his Walter
Whities,
waving happily next to the barrel.
INT. COURT ROOM
JUDGE MICHELLE addresses the packed court room. Journalists
fill the audience. Skyler, Walter Jr and Holly sit at the
defendants’ table with their young, dopey PUBLIC DEFENDER.
JUDGE MICHELLE
Up next we have the trial of the
White family. They are charged with
conspiracy, fraud, drug
trafficking, money laundering, and
murder.
A tear falls from Skyler’s eye. She whispers to her kids.
SKYLER WHITE
(trying to convince herself)
Don’t worry. Your father will save
us. He has to.
21.
EXT. WHITE HOUSEHOLD
Walt parks in front of the house. He gets out. Next door,
KAREN stands, holding groceries.
WALT
Hello Karen.
Karen drops her groceries in horror and runs away. Walt
pulls the assault rifle from the trunk and enters the house.
INT. WHITE HOUSEHOLD
The house is covered in Heisenberg graffiti and generally
looks to be the victim of teenagers.
Walt hears commotion in the backyard and hides. He peaks out
the back window and sees skateboarders shredding in his
pool. Walt sneaks in the bedroom, unscrews a wall socket and
takes the ricin pill hidden inside. Walt looks at his
Watch.
WALT
It’s my birthday! I totally forgot!
INT. COURT ROOM
Skyler is at the stand. The PROSECUTOR questions
her.
SKYLER
I’ll do anything. I’ll tell you
anything you want. Just leave my
children out of this. Please!
PROSECUTOR
So you admit you were a part of
your husbands massive drug
manufacturing and distribution
network?
SKYLER
Yes. Yes! I did it all, everything.
Just let me children go.
PROSECUTOR
You’re gonna go away for a long
time, Skyler White. As for your
kids, that’s for the jury to
decide.
22.
SKYLER
NO!!!! PLEASE!!
INT. DINER
Walt sits behind a plate of pancakes and bacon. He forms the
bacon to spell his age, 52. The waitress refills his coffee.
WALT
Hey, everyone! It’s my birthday!
WAITRESS
(disinterested)
Happy birthday.
Walt digs in.
INT. COURT ROOM
Walter Jr is at the stand. The PROSECUTOR questions
him.
PROSECUTOR
Walter Jr, is it true that you set
up the Web site
SaveWalterWhite.com?
WALTER JR
Yes, but I didn’t know that-
PROSECUTOR
Let the record show that Walter Jr
is guilty.
Murmurs from the audience.
EXT. DINER
Walt pulls the assault rifle from the trunk of his car.
WALT
Heisenberg’s about to add some
uncertainty up in this bitch.
Walt cocks the gun. He gets in his car and peels out of the
parking lot.
23.
INT. COURT ROOM
Prosecutor questions a witness.
PROSECUTOR
Miss White, do you deny any of the
accusations that have been made
about you in this courtroom today?
REVEAL Holly is at the witness stand, in her crib. Holly
doesn’t respond. She just waves her arms around a little
and
does baby stuff.
PROSECUTOR
Let the record show that Holly
White has admitted to EVERYTHING.
Murmurs from the audience. The judge bangs her gavel.
JUDGE MICHELLE
Order! Order in the court!
Holly begins to cry.
JUDGE MICHELLE
(to Holly)
Aww! I’m sorry, did I scare you?
You’re such a cute baby. Yes you
are.
EXT. STREET
Walt is racing through town, pedal to the floor.
WALT
They are not getting away with
this!
INT. COURT ROOM
LEAD JUROR addresses the court.
LEAD JUROR
In the trial of Skyler, Walter Jr
and Holly White, we find all the
defendants-
A long beat. Tension fills the room. The White family
wait
for the decision with bated breath.
24.
LEAD JUROR
Guilty.
The White family is in shock, except Holly, who is a baby.
She doesn’t know what’s going on.
JUDGE MICHELLE
I sentence each of you to life in
prison with no parole.
Skyler’s mouth drops.
INT. WALT’S CAR
Walt grits his teeth. Close up on the speedometer, it shoots
to the top. Walt grips the wheel tight and aims directly at
the side of a building.
INT. COURT ROOM
Something catches Skyler’s attention and she looks to the
wall. The screen goes black. We hear a crash.
INT. GRAY MATTER TECHNOLOGIES
Walt’s car sits in the lobby amidst a pile of debris. Behind
it, a hole in the wall where Walt drove through. ELLIOT
SCHWARTZ gets up from his desk. GRETCHEN SCHWARTZ sits
beside him, in shock.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
WHAT THE FUCK?
Walt exits the car with his assault rifle.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
Walter? Oh-Oh God. Walt. Take
anything you want. You want money?
We can give you all the money you
need-
WALT
This isn’t about money.
Walt slowly approaches Elliot as he rants.
WALT
This. All of this, should’ve been
MINE! I built this! Not you!
25.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
Walt, I-I I don’t know what to tell
you. You, you left! No one made you
leave.
WALT
Oh, yeah. Like I was just gonna
STICK AROUND while you were
screwing my girlfriend behind MY
BACK!
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
(to Gretchen)
He knew about that?
Gretchen
shrugs.
WALT
With all my scientific
BREAKTHROUGHS, you think I couldn’t
DISCOVER your little affair?
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
Walt, I’m sorry I-
WALT
You took EVERYTHING from me! My
work! My legacy! And the woman I
love! I’m here to return the favor.
Walt sticks barrel of his gun in Elliot’s mouth.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
Mmmph!
WALT
You know, it’s funny that we named
this company gray matter. Because
I’m about to paint the walls with
yours.
Walt pulls the trigger. A BANG is heard, but otherwise
nothing happens. Walt walks toward his car. Elliot
hyperventilates for a beat, then rapidly pats his body,
checking for damage. He’s fine. Elliot checks the wall
behind him. Nothing.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
It’s a miracle!
GRETCHEN SCHWARTZ
Thank God! Honey, you’re alive.
26.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
I don’t know what happened! The
bullet must’ve gotten jammed or
something!
Walt turns to them.
WALT
Oh I didn’t shoot you with a
bullet. No, no. I loaded this gun
with a pill. Ricin. And considering
the velocity it traveled down your
throat, it should start taking
effect any second.
Elliot Schwartz looks at his hands. His flesh begins to
steam and melt. Elliot shrieks in pain and fear. He slowly
dissolves into a puddle on the floor a la the Wicked Witch
of the West in The Wizard of Oz.
ELLIOT SCHWARTZ
I’m melting! I’m melting! Oh fuck!
I’m melting! What a world!
Elliot’s cries turn to gurgling until only his steaming
clothes are left on the floor. Gretchen sobs. Walt turns
away and smirks as he leaves.
INT. JAIL CELL
Skyler, Walter Jr and Holly wear orange jumpsuits. Holly’s
is baby sized and adorable. They’re sharing a jail cell
together.
WALTER JR
Mom, are we really gonna be in here
forever?
SKYLER
I don’t know, honey. I don’t know.
EXT. GRAY MATTER TECHNOLOGIES
Walt comes out of the hole in the building. He walks down
the sidewalk. He’s finally at peace. Walt coughs lightly
into his hand. He looks down to find his hand covered in
blood.
WALT
(whispered, scared)
Cancer.
27.
(not whispered)
I need to get to a hospital!
Walt runs back into the building and speeds out in the car.
INT. CAR
Walt speeds for the hospital as his condition rapidly
deteriorates.
WALT
Come on! Come on!
We see Walt’s skin become gaunt and frail. His goatee falls
off.
EXT. HOSPITAL
Walt’s car slams into the curb and bounces onto the sidewalk
in front of the entrance, before coming to a stop.
Walt
falls out of the car and hobbles in.
INT. HOSPITAL
Walt pulls himself up to the front desk. He speaks
to
RECEPTIONIST.
WALT
I have very bad cancer and I need
help immediately.
RECEPTIONIST
OK, sir. And what is your name?
Walt looks around.
WALT
My name is Elliot Schwartz.
RECEPTIONIST
OK, Mr Schwartz. And can I see some
ID please?
Walt puts his car keys up on the desk.
WALT
There’s 11 million dollars in the
trunk of my car that says I don’t
need ID.
The receptionist is stunned.
28.
WALT
Take it!
The receptionist jumps and takes the keys.
RECEPTIONIST
Right this way sir.
INT. PRISON VISITING ROOM
MARIE speaks into the phone to Skyler and the family.
There’s a wall of bullet proof glass between them.
MARIE
I’m not going to let him get away
with this, you know.
SKYLER
It’s over. He’s gone, Marie. We all
just need to move on.
MARIE
I can’t just move on! Hank-
Marie surprises herself with Hanks name. She gets choked
up.
MARIE
I need to finish this. For Hank.
And for you.
A GUARD enters.
GUARD
Times up ladies! Move out!
Marie puts her hand onto the glass. Skyler presses hers
against it.
MARIE
(through tears)
This isn’t over! I promise! I’ll
figure something out!
GUARD
OK, let’s go.
Guard pulls Marie off the glass and escorts her out.
29.
INT. CAR
Marie pulls into her drive way and parks. She lets out
a
light sob and composes herself.
WALTER JR
How did we get here?
REVEAL Skyler, Walter Jr and Holly in the back
seat.
MARIE
You know how I’m a kleptomaniac?
SKYLER
Yeah.
MARIE
Well I stole you.
MARIE takes the keys out of the car and tosses
them
to
Skylar.
MARIE
They’re going to be looking for you
soon so you need to go. Now.
There’s 100,000 dollars worth of
diamond baby tiaras in the back
that should be enough to keep you
going until you figure something
out. Go. Get as far away as you
can.
Marie gets out of the car.
SKYLER
Marie. I don’t know what to say.
MARIE
Just say you won’t let them put my
niece and nephew back in the
slammer.
SKYLER
You have my word.
The car drives off. Marie watches them go.
30.
INT. HOSPITAL ROOM
Walt is hooked up to all kinds of beeping machines. He looks
90 years old. DOCTOR speaks to him.
DOCTOR
I’m sorry, Mr. Schwartz. This is
the most aggressive cancer I’ve
ever seen. It’s almost like someone
gave your cancer meth. We’ve done
everything we could, but you’ve
only got a few more moments to
live.
Walt can barely wheeze his words out.
WALT
Just leave me. I want to go alone,
in peace.
The beeps on Walt’s machines are becoming further apart.
DOCTOR
Of course.
The doctor walks out the door. The beeps are rare now. It’s
clear Walt will draw his last breath any second. The doctor
closes the door on his way out, REVEALING Marie behind it.
MARIE
They say people who love purple
share many characteristics.
Marie slowly makes her way towards Walt.
MARIE
We’re sensitive and compassionate.
We have gentle and free spirits.
And we tend to live in our own
little fantasy worlds, where we
exclude the ugly side of reality.
Marie leans on the front of Walt’s bed. Walt’s life beeps
are faint and sparse.
MARIE
Well, Walter, you look real to me.
Real ugly. And I’m gonna exclude
you from my reality, personally.
Marie raises a gun. She fires. We hear Walt flatline. Marie
saunters out of the room, blowing the smoke from the barrel
of her gun.
31.
BLACK. Long beat of blackness. Then, suddenly.
INT. MOTEL ROOM
HUEL sits on the couch, watching TV.
Huel changes the channel to The Price is Right.
HUEL
I love this show!
Huel watches The Price is Right.
HUEL
Aw, man. I always forget it’s not
Bob Barker anymore.
Huel sits quietly and continues to watch The Price is
Right.
Huel gets up and walks off screen. Long beat. We hear
a
flush. Huel returns to the couch.
Huel sits quietly and continues to watch The Price is
Right.
Huel rubs his tummy.
HUEL
I’m hungry. I wonder if they got
any food in here.
Huel walks to the kitchen. He looks through the cabinets.
They’re empty, until the last one. It contains baking
ingrediants and a recipe book.
HUEL
Ooo.
Huel reads the book. He begins pouring ingrediants in a
bowl. He preheats the oven. He stirs everything together.
Huel pours his mixture into a pan and puts it in the oven.
Huel returns to the couch and quietly watches The Price is
Right for a long beat.
A bell dings. Huel returns to the kitchen. Huel removes a
cake from the oven and puts it on the counter to cool.
Huel returns to the couch. The Price is Right has ended.
HUEL
Aw, man. I missed the showcase
showdown.
32.
The TV is now showing a soap opera. Huel quietly watches the
episode to completion.
Huel walks back into the kitchen. He takes a container of
strawberry frosting from the fridge. Huel ices his cake.
Huel finishes preparing the cake.
HUEL
Perfect.
Huel takes a plate from the cupboard. He carefully cuts the
first piece and serves it to himself. Huel scoops up cake
with his fork and puts it into his mouth.
Huel stares forward in panic. His lips curl downward.
Something is terribly wrong. Huel opens the trash and spits
the cake into it.
Huel returns to the recipe book and scans the page.
HUEL
Aw no! Awww nooo! I mixed up the
sugar and the salt!
Huel slams the counter.
HUEL
(genuinely sad)
I’m such a dummy.
Huel takes his cake and shoves the whole thing into the
trash.
Huel returns to the couch and sighs.
BREAKING BAD THEME PLAYS.
CREDITS ROLL.
