    There aren't any more episodes to go back to. Unless you go back to Season 1


    Was the scene with the Hummer really in season 1 too? Remember, my memory is bad.

    Nope. Here's the transcript. (Episode is still on amc.com too.)

    Nacho: This is interesting.
    Daniel: Oh, yeah. You like it?
    Nacho: Can I take a look?
    Daniel: Oh. Be my guest. Get in. Check it out.
    Nacho: Wow. Impressive.
    Daniel: Thank you. Get in. Feel the leather. Yeah, it's a H2. Brand-new off the line. Slimmer than the H1 but longer, more height. Yeah, it's a honey. V-8 engine, 325 horsepower, tri-zone climate controls. So you can have a girl in a bikini and another in a parka, and they're both gonna be comfortable.
    Nacho: You're running around with two girls in your S.U.V., you'll be really comfortable, huh?
    Daniel: Oh, yeah. Yes. I'm gonna count this quick.
    Nacho: Do your thing.

    No, he gets the new car in S02E01. That's when Mike refuses to get in, so Daniel goes alone, meets Nacho, and later has the police over after he's robbed. All the same episode.

    That's what I thought, but thought he used the "It's a lease" to justify it to Mike. I was just not sure what going back ANOTHER episode was going to do because I didn't recall the Hummer scene in season 1. But remember, I also didn't recall the job turndown scene in season 1.

    He doesn't tell Mike that either. Only the cops. It's earlier in the same episode when he pulls up to meet Mike who says he's not getting in that car.

    Yup, all right on all counts. I could have SWORN he told Nacho it was a lease.

    I also thought this was Ep03.

    Don't feel bad. I really thought he told that to Mike.

    This is just speculation on my part, but:
    As to whether or not the Hummer is a lease, we'll probably find out eventually, because "the dude" won't be able to stop bitching to Mike about losing the Hummer.

    I think we've seen the end of "the dude"... story line complete, time to move on.

    He's too stupid to move on. He'll be back.

    Maybe once.


    Mike is too smart to not deal with him anymore.



    Of course, maybe he turns to Jimmy.

    He's listed as a recurring character. He'll be back.

    He's got to stick around, to help Jimmy on his slide towards the Dark Side. :D

    casting spoiler!





    Just kidding

    I don't usually follow this sort of thing, unless maybe it's a big name actor.




    Guessing we'll see him in trouble and Jimmy will help him out "pro bono"

    Not sure if it was mentioned in the season 1 threads, but the actor that plays Daniel ("the Dude") is also a yo-yo master. They mentioned it on Talking Saul.

    Probably if you go to IMDB you can see how many episodes he's in (but I didn't do that).

    That's what I assumed from the beginning...he had a lot of cash from his drug dealing, so no need to lease.

    Saul to the detectives -- "You've underestimated how big an idiot you're dealing with here..."

    This was an important crossroads scene for Jimmy and Kim. She wishes he would naturally take the high road, but his true nature is to take the low road. She sees his potential and expects him to use it for "good", and he gave no false promises to her that he will do what she expects of him from now on. He was quiet, and tried to deflect the conversation rather than lie to her. A lot of subtle stuff going on between them, which illustrates how great the writing is on this show.

    I know that color plays an important part in Vince Gilligan's shows, and they used bright yellow a lot in the opening scene (travel mug, license plate, Salon owner's shirt, the old car). The travel mug not quite fitting in to the Mercedes cup holder is also a metaphor for Jimmy not quite fitting in to the new upscale law firm.

    You have to realize that Kenny "K-Strass" Strasser, the incompetent yo-yo master, was a character Mark Proksch was playing in order to prank local morning news programs in various cities (as they apparently do no background research on guests' claims). The series of YouTube viral videos built up his gag-reel/audition tapes which eventually led to the gig on BCS.

    As "Daniel" the pharmaceutical dealer, Mark Proksch has mastered the Minnesota accent. His character sounds like he stepped right out of Bemidji. :up:
