    Got the breakdown:

    All talk is "after Dealers' cut". So we don't know what the dealers' cut is.

    Gross revenue after Dealers is $1,379,560

    Mules get a flat 20% which gives them $367K each.

    Ira gets $110K for his piece of the business plus $25K each per cook. So Ira gets $45K each. Those numbers don't add up so either I didn't understand or they made a mistake. Sounds to me like it will be $25K from now on; but it's not clear. I am sure about the $45K each.

    Ira's guys get $10K each per cook.

    Saul gets $18K each per cook.

    Hazard Pay is $117K each per cook.

    Mike regarding the legacy/hazard pay: "This is how it's going to be from here on out. My guys are an ongoing expenditure".

    oh, Mike did say 9 guys.

    And, changing topics, loved how Walt threw Skyler under the bus with Maria!

    One of my first jobs in the 1960ies was at Rapid Car Wash in Lawrence Massachusetts, and there was a full basement there.

    Ira's cut this time is 110+25= $135k, which is $45k per share.

    Y'all have major OCD. You should create a spreadsheet.

    Thumbs up to Wiley Coyote. Perfect comment.

    But he didn't really do that. He had already withdrawn the mule fee and had to explain it. If he did that, he should have just withdrawn it all and explained all the expenses when Walt asked.

    Im pretty sure Walt was ambiguous at the end on purpose. He wants Jesse to think the worst. It's all about grabbing power. It doesnt matter that Jesse gets some point Walt was making. What matters is Jesse now has to think about what Walts thinking about. The worm has been inserted into his brain. It's classic manipulation. Whatever the worst case explanation is, Jesse will think it. The scene where Jesse is peeling the beer bottle is key. He's screwed in the head right now and Walt intends to keep it that way. Power and control.

    The mules had possession of the money. They're not going to give that money to Mike so he can do a show-and-tell with Walt. They're going to want their 20% when the cash is in front of them. :)

    I was going to do the same thing, but I thought it might be too obscure. ;)

    It's extremely rare to have a basement in the Southwest. They're unheard of in CA, for instance.

    They're only making about 1/4 of the product that they used to make for Fring; if they can get that back up then money should not be a big deal overall to them.

    That perturbed me. Skylar is again the bad guy and Walt gets off.

    yep. I woke up this morning thinking "the math works if it's not $25K each"

    :eek:

    you're assuming I didn't create a spreadsheet ;)

    You know, that bit is good for both Walt and Skyler, because Skyler is in on the entire gambit, if Hank and/or Marie find out the truth, it's curtains for the White family. So while Skyler did take the fall, nothing Walt said was false, and it takes the heat from Marie off of them for a while so it's less likely for Marie to tip off Hank, and even the opposite, if Hank starts sensing something odd, Marie can explain that to Hank without Walt or Skyler getting involved.

    As long as Walt tells Skyler what happened, so she can now play along.

    Those numbers add up. Ira gets $110k plus $25k per cook. That's a total of $135k. Divide that by 3 and you get the $45k they each paid out. I'm thinking the $110k is a one-time expense.

    Mike also said he was going to "make them whole" which implies to me that the cost will stop at some point. But assuming the 9 guys are each due $1 million and Mike is collecting $351,000 total from each cook (giving each of the 9 guys $39k per cook), it's going to take a while to make them whole (about 6 months with 1 cook per week).

    So for this cook here are the numbers:

    Gross after dealer's cut: $1,367,560
    Mules: -$275,912
    Gross after mules: $1,103,648 (rounded to $1,101,000)
    Ira's "piece of the business": -$110,000
    Ira's per cook cost: -$25,000
    Ira's guys per cook (3 guys at $10k each): -$30,000
    Saul's take: $54,000
    Legacy cost: $351,000

    Net after all costs: $531,000

    Divided by 3, that's $177,000 each. Then Mike and Walt gave Jessie $40k each for fronting the money. That left Walt with the $137,000 he stated.

    For ongoing cooks, I think the costs will be (assuming the same yield):
    Gross after dealer's cut: $1,367,560
    Mules: -$275,912
    Gross after mules: $1,103,648 (rounded to $1,101,000)
    Ira's per cook cost: -$25,000
    Ira's guys per cook (3 guys at $10k each): -$30,000
    Saul's take: $54,000
    Legacy cost: $351,000
    Methylamine: ??? (Mike said the first batch was free, but the next was going to cost big)

    Net after all costs: $641,000 ($213,666.67 each, minus methylamine cost)

    After Mike's guys are "made whole", they should be getting $330,666.67 each per cook (minus methylamine cost). That works out to a yearly income of $17,194,666.84 each (minus methylamine cost), assuming 1 cook per week. That's more than the $15 million per year he was getting under Fring.
