    Good point.

    First project: Build tunnel to the job site from inside the warehouse.

    The laundry IS part of the rest of Gus's operations.

    It's a big (nearly) empty building. What operations is Gus running there in BCS time?

    Exactly. If she's bringing in enough billables, she can likely get plenty of concessions. Plus, law firms like to be able to tout the amount of pro bono hours they provide each year, so if they've got someone actually wanting to do the pro bono stuff, that frees up the rest of the firm to not have to do much (or any).

    To some degree. Pro Bono doesn't make them (direct) money. They like money. It's all about billable hours.

    Right. If Kim is bringing in $500,000 in annual billables from Mesa Verde and her salary as a partner will be $200k, and she'll still probably bill 1,000 hours per year in addition to 500-1,000 hours of pro bono work, that's a no-brainer deal for S&C.

    Given the very similar building layout, and the fact that it's 10 years before the BB timeline, it's not that obvious the bunkhouse is in the "middle of nowhere". That mountain view could have been the view of the laundry at the time of BCS but not BB. We already established that it's not the same, but I'm not the only one who was thrown off by the buildings looking very similar and where the differences are obvious only when looking at photos side-by-side.

    I agree with @pdhenry -- there are no operations here yet. None. The "rest of your operation" if you recall is out in the desert at the chicken processing plant (or at least that's where it will be in the BB timeline). We see a LPH plant in the next-to-last episode where Gus employs Mike to handle the laundry build, but we don't know where that is.

    What does this have to do with anything we're talking about? Other than Kai not being long for this world? I have a feeling he "accidentally" slips and falls into the cement when they're pouring the slab for the superlab. See: "Boxcutter".

    So, Gus's laundry they're going to build the drug lab under isn't part of Gus's operation? Really?

    Privacy for female companionship was discussed earlier in the thread. This dialog just points out that Mike may be willing to go along with it. Hence the possibility of bringing other people into the warehouse.

    BTW, there are no high mountains in the background of the laundry location. I guess Gus had them moved.

    I'm going to have to rewatch this episode for the evidence that the two buildings are nowhere near each other.

    No, it's not currently part of his operation. It will be. Right now, it's a shut-down laundry facility. There's absolutely no "operation" happening there.

    I took that very clearly as the "girls" absolutely NOT being "within reason". No way Gus or Mike would jeopardize the operation bringing in "other people".

    There's absolutely no evidence of that. It could easily be a time or day when they are closed. Not every laundry runs 24/7. Remember this is 10 years before what we know of the laundry from BB.

    I took it very clearly that Mike was not happy about something (women) he had not thought about. He didn't like being called out on something he overlooked. We'll see.

    It still doesn't matter. None of Gus Fring's operation is there. Even if he owns it, and it's still operating as an actual laundry, none of his "operations" (i.e. drug manufacturing or distribution) are there (yet).

    If he was putting that warehouse right next to the laundry, while would Mike even say anything about it not being near anything?

    Mike's already pissed off with Kai's flippant attitude. He's not going to reward him by bringing in 'girls'.

    We already established dozens of posts ago the warehouse is not next to the laundry.

    It's obviously not sinking in. Maybe we need to beat the topic to death some more.

    What is the laundry's Tax ID#?

    When Gus and Lydia go look at the laundry, it's just an industrial building for sale. The video below does not look like an operating laundry business (even one that's just closed).

    Gus at some future point re-opens the laundry business as a front (obviously).
