A not-so-brief rundown of the letter ‘R’ in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

2020.07.30 01:00 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of the letter ‘R’ in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of the letter ‘R’ under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hrq9bg/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_jl_of_jeffrey/).
I posted letter M on July 20, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/huw0yt/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_m_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters N-Q on July 27, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hyudbz/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letters_nq_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
R
Rachline, Nicholas: Best friend of Harvey Weinstein for over 30 years (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/champs-elysees-film-festival-harvey-weinstein-334309), Rachline is a photographer. Rachline was also editor-in-chief of Above, a magazine dedicated to environmental protection, until its final issue a few years later. Contributors to the magazine included David de Rothschild, Robert F. Kennedy Jr, Richard Branson, and other well-known figures. The biannual magazine was distributed by Conde Nast, which also owns Tatler, Vogue, Glamour, GQ, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and other influential publications. Jeffrey Epstein’s connections to Conde Nast publications - specifically Tatler and Vogue - continues to grow.
Radziwill, Carole: Journalist for ABC News who also wrote a monthly column for Glamour (owned by Conde Nast). Carole was on the Real Housewives of New York City for 6 seasons. Carole was a good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s in the early 2000s. Maxwell even set her up with Prince Andrew after Carole’s husband, Prince Anthony Radziwill, died of cancer in 1999 (https://www.nickiswift.com/224731/the-truth-about-carole-radziwill-ghislaine-maxwell/). Radziwill was the nephew of Jacqueline Kennedy (JFK’s wife) and son of Polish Prince Stanislaw Albrecht Radziwill. He also served as best man at JFK Jr.’s wedding. There are several pictures of Carole and Ghislaine circulating which forced her to make a statement regarding her relationship with Maxwell and Epstein, whom she says she only met once.
Rankin, Mr Gavin: The former Europe, Middle East, and Asia (EMEA) head of managed investments for Citi Private Bank. Now works for HSBC in a similar position. Has ties to the Royal Family. His restaurant, Bellamy’s, is the “only restaurant where the Monarch has ever dined at (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3504185/The-Queen-goes-dinner-Bellamy-s-restaurant.html).” The Queen even celebrated her 80th birthday there. Looking at the menu prices, it seems an odd choice considering it’s not some super high-end eatery. Rankin is also the heir apparent to the Rankin Baronetcy.
Rappaport, Don: Co-founder and CEO of American List Counsel (ALC). The ALC tried to sell personal information on one-million kids (ages 14-17), along with their parents’ names, household incomes, and ethnicities to advertising companies (https://www.mcall.com/news/breaking/mc-nws-data-broker-personal-info-20190319-story.html) just last year. In other words, Mr. Rappaport runs a company that collects data on children and sells this information to whomever is willing to buy it. Who else is Rappaport sharing this information with?
Rattazzi, Isabel: Former model. Isabel is a Countess through her marriage to Lupo dei Conti Rattazzi. Her husband is the son of Susanna Agnelli, former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Member of Parliament in Italy. The Agnelli family are controlling shareholders of Fiat Automobiles.
Raynes, Patty: Daughter of billionaire oil and entertainment mogul, Marvin Davis (1925-2004). Patty is a well-known socialite in the Hamptons. Raynes hung out in the same circles as Ghislaine and Epstein. Her husband is a real estate developer.
Reardan, Kate: Editor of Tatler (another Tatler connection!) magazine from 2011-2017. Previously worked for Vanity Fair, another Conde Nast publication. Reardon was named one of London’s 1000 Most Influential People by the Evening Standard in 2007. She once dated Rupert Fairfax, aide to Prince Charles.
Reynal Michael: International investment banker.
Reynal, Miguel: There are a few Miguel Reynals. I believe it is the investment banker who once worked for Deutsche Bank because of the connection between Epstein and Deutsche Bank.
Reza, Ali: Founder of aviation company Freestream Aircraft Limited. Routinely deals with the wealthy and powerful (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/11/sanctioned-russian-tycoon-hands-back-his-private-jets.html).
Ritblat, Nick Rebecca Willis: Nick is the son of John Ritblat, the former Chairman and CEO of British Land, one of the largest property development and investment companies in the UK. Nick has followed in his father’s footsteps, as he is also in the property development game.
Ritson Thomas Rupert: Descendent of James Bond author, Ian Fleming (https://www.henleystandard.co.uk/news/community/136373/james-bond-authors-descendents-win-1-2-million-claim-on-school-land.html). Attends parties with royalty (https://www.tatler.com/gallery/royal-ascot-2000). Brother of famous photographer, Hugo Rittson-Thomas, who supports The National Deaf Children’s Society.
Rivers, Joan (and Melissa Rivers): Joan was a very popular comedian and actress who died in 2014 during surgery. Many think she was murdered because of her comments about Michelle Obama’s gender. Joan was friends with Ghislaine Maxwell and knew her since at least the early ‘90s (https://www.salon.com/2019/07/09/i-was-a-friend-of-jeffrey-epstein-heres-what-i-know/). Joan was also good friends with Prince Charles and had a tight relationship with the Royal Family, as she often attended Royal events (https://www.biography.com/news/joan-rivers-prince-charles-friendship). Melissa is her daughter. She has no discernible talent whatsoever.
Robert, Joseph & Jill: Joseph E. Robert Jr. was an international real estate investor. Robert was known for his philanthropy. He donated $25 million (and raised $150 million more) to finance research on reducing the pain that children experience during surgery. He has been credited with raising nearly $1 billion for children’s charities ((https://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/09/business/joseph-e-robert-jr-investor-in-real-estate-dies-at-59.html). Robert founded Fight for Children, a charity meant to support at-risk children in Washington D.C. (https://www.fightforchildren.org/joseph-e-robert-j). Robert also donated a lot of money to Children’s National Hospital (https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2019/10/24/here-s-what-children-s-national-is-bringing-to-the.html), which has scholarships named in his honor. He died of brain cancer in 2011. Jill was his wife.
Roberts, Deb: 99% sure this is the TV journalist for ABC News and wife of famous weatherman/TV personality Al Roker.
Robilant, Mr Edmondo di Maya: Edmondo is a fine art dealer. His wife, Maya, is a University lecturer, journalist, and television presenter.
Robin: Robin DeMetz is a personal friend of Epstein pal/alleged accomplice Naomi Campbell (https://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/30/nyregion/boldface-names-482374.html). She is married to Hasz DeMetz, who is in the diamond mining business.
Robinski, Kasia/Pod: Kasia is an investor and serves as director for several companies. No clue who/what Pod refers to.
Robinson, Jo & Lisa Shields: Lisa is the Vice President of Global Communications and Media Relations for the Council on Foreign Relations, where Epstein used to serve. No info on Joe, although I believe he is the gentleman on the left in this picture (https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/photo/0361960).
Rocksavage, David: The 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley and the Lord Great Chamberlain of the UK. He is a descendant of the Rothschild and Sassoon families through his grandmother, Sybil Sassoon. He is also the descendant of Britain’s first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole. The Marquess doesn’t keep the best company. The Godfather of his twins bilked L’Oreal heiress, Liliane Bettencourt, out of £850 million in 2010 https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1295083/L-Oreal-fraud-suspect-Marquess.html). He was convicted of ‘abuse of weakness’ in 2016. Rocksavage’s wife, Rose Hanbury, is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. She is a patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) along with Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and other royalty. Last year, there were rumors that Rose Hanbury had an affair with Prince William, Prince Charles’s eldest son and husband of Kate Middleton (https://news.yahoo.com/6-things-know-rose-hanbury-164552520.html).
Roedy, Bill: Former Vice President at HBO, former head honcho at MTV Europe, and Global Health Advisor. In 2018, Roedy was named Vice Chair of Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance (https://www.gavi.org/gavi-board-appoints-bill-roedy-as-vice-chair), which was founded in 2000 by… the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (https://www.gavi.org/our-alliance/about)! Roedy not only serves on the Council on Foreign Relations just like Epstein once did (Epstein preceded Roedy), but he also had connections to Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s father.
Rolfe, Gail: Freelance journalist and fashion editor who once worked for Tatler (again) and The Times (https://www.hachette.com.au/gail-rolfe/).
Ronson, Lisa: Gerald Ronson’s daughter (see below).
Ronson, Mr & Mrs Gerald: British furniture and property development tycoon. Gerald is a big-time philanthropist. In addition to the number of Jewish groups he gives money to, Ronson also serves as Vice President of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). a children’s charity that several others in Epstein’s ‘black book’ (Jemma Kidd, Tim Jeffries, Mary Glanville, Clare Hazell-Ivaegh, Ben Holland-Martin, Manilo Marocco) and Princess Margaret have served. The number of suspected pedophiles and child traffickers that are involved with the NSPCC is mindblowing. As if that weren’t enough, Gerald was also good friends with Greville Janner, ex-Leicester MP who was constantly accused of child abuse before his death, but was able to evade culpability due to police constantly bungling the evidence (https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/leicester-news/ex-leicester-mp-greville-janner-3869479). Gerald’s wife, Gail, is also a philanthropist of Jewish charities. Her first big event in 1983 was attended by Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
Rose, Wendy & Joe: Now divorced, Wendi and Joe are both real estate magnates in New York. Joe worked for Mayor Giuliani from 1993-2001.
Rose, Charlie & Burden, Amanda: Charlie Rose is a (former) famous television journalist who hosted the eponymous talk show, Charlie Rose. Jeffrey Epstein and Charlie Rose were thick as thieves. In fact, Epstein (and his assistant) called Rose many times and would recommend potential young assistants for Charlie Rose to hire (https://nymag.com/intelligence2019/07/jeffrey-epstein-high-society-contacts.html). Epstein frequently lunched with and attended parties with Rose. Rose’s show was cancelled in 2017 when eight women came out and accused him of sexual harassment (https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/eight-women-say-charlie-rose-sexually-harassed-them--with-nudity-groping-and-lewd-calls/2017/11/20/9b168de8-caec-11e7-8321-481fd63f174d_story.html). Since then, 27 more women have accused Charlie Rose of sexual harassment (https://www.vulture.com/2018/05/charlie-rose-27-women-new-accusers-sexual-harassment.html), bringing the grand total to 35. Rose also served on the Council on Foreign Relations, although I am unable to find out if his time there coincided with Epstein’s. Charlie’s former love interest, Amanda, has worked for Bloomberg since 2002, first as director of the New York City Department of City Planning, then as chair of the City Planning Commission, and now as a principal at Bloomberg Associates, a consulting service.
Rosen, Andrew: Fashion designer.
Rosen, Denis & Sylvia: Dennis was a well-respected British scientist. Sylvia was his wife and co-writer of London Science.
Rosencrantz, Ms Claudia: British television executive and journalist. She was Controller of Entertainment for ITV for over ten years. Voted one of Britain’s 50 most inspirational women in 2018 by the Daily Mail.
Rosenfield, Donald: Movie producer. Former President of Merchant Ivory Productions from 1986-1998.
Rosenstein, Rob: Co-founder of Agoda. Similar to Expedia, Orbitz, Priceline, etc, Agoda provides its users with information on flights and hotels
Rosenthal, Jane: Co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival and Tribeca Productions film studio with Robert De Niro. Good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell (https://www.barefootpalmbeach.com/post/epstein) and Peggy Siegal (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/jane-rosenthal-and-peggy-siegal-attend-lunch-in-honor-of-news-photo/591348640), Epstein’s plug into New York celebrity society.
Roth, Peter Thomas & Noreen: Peter Thomas Roth is the founder of the skin care and cosmetics company that bears his name. Roth graduated from Dalton school in 1975, where Epstein taught him during his senior year. Roth has lauded Epstein as a “brilliant teacher.” Epstein later served Roth’s tutor to prepare him for the Wharton School at Penn (http://www.virginislandsdailynews.com/ap/how-epstein-went-from-teaching-to-wall-street/article_59c0234e-cf7d-59c3-96a7-bb8a04dacaa8.html). Roth admits to going to Epstein’s mansion once, although he says only middle-aged people were present (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/12/nyregion/jeffrey-epstein-dalton-teacher.html). This story would be more plausible if Epstein didn’t have eight phone numbers, two addresses, and an email address listed under Roth’s name. It would also be more believable if they didn’t live two blocks away from each other in NYC. Noreen is Peter’s ex-wife. She serves as Managing Director of his company.
Rothchild, Jessica: Actually Jessica de Rothschild, daughter of billionaire financier Sir Evelyn de Rothschild (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/prince-charles-prince-of-wales-speaks-with-with-sir-evelyn-news-photo/467631086?adppopup=true) and Lynn Forester de Rothschild, close friend of Hillary Clinton. Jessica used to be a writer for Tatler magazine, which Epstein is deeply connected to through his contacts. Runs in the same circles as Epstein and Maxwell.
Rothchild, Hannah: The eldest child of Jacob Rothschild (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/lord-jacob-rothschild-attends-the-launch-of-the-stella-news-photo/972453692?adppopup=true), Hannah is a businesswoman and was the first female Chair of the Board of Trustees of the National Gallery in London. In 2018, Hannah took over as Chair of Yad Hanadiv (https://www.yadhanadiv.org.il/about-yad-hanadiv), a pro-Israel Rothschild organization/charity which has been running in its current form since 1958. The actual history dates back to the late 1800s when Baron Edmond de Rothschild sought to “support Jewish revival in Palestine.” Yad Hanadiv is responsible for building the Knesset (Israeli parliament), the Supreme Court, and is currently working on the New National Library in Israel. Hannah is also a Trustee of the Rothschild Foundation, which has been a long-time patron of… the NSPCC children’s charity (https://www.nspcc.org.uk/globalassets/documents/annual-reports/nspcc-annual-report-2006.pdf), where countless other suspected pedophiles and pedophile sympathizers find themselves orbiting.
Rothenburg, Rich: Former portfolio manager and researcher at Deutsche Bank, which was recently fined $150 million for ignoring Epstein’s suspicious transactions (https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/07/business/jeffrey-epstein-deutsche-bank-fine/index.html).
Rotherwick, Tania & Robin: Tania is an old friend of Ghislaine Maxwell (https://www.tatler.com/article/where-on-earth-is-ghislaine-maxwell) and ex-girlfriend of Prince Andrew. She is also the sister-in-law of Mark Carney, who served as the Governor of the Bank of England from 2013-2020. Her ex-husband, Robin Cayzer, is the 3rd Baron Rotherwick. He has served in the House of Lords since 1996.
Rothschild, Edouard de: Son of Guy de Rothschild, who was the great-great-grandson of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, the person responsible for founding the family’s banking empire in the 18th century. Edouard was head of the family’s Paris-based Rothschild & Cie Banque from 1987-2004, when he stepped down.
Rothschild, Evelyn de: Businessman and banker supposedly worth $20 billion, although many think it’s actually a lot more. In addition to poking Prince Charles (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/prince-charles-prince-of-wales-speaks-with-with-sir-evelyn-news-photo/467631086?adppopup=true), Evelyn has also asserted his dominance of many companies and corporations by acting as Chairman or Director of The Economist (1972-1989), De Beers (1977-1994), IBM, and many others. Evelyn has served as Queen Elizabeth II’s financial advisor for decades (https://www.jewoftheweek.net/2017/11/29/jews-of-the-week-evelyn-de-rothschild-jacob-rothschild/). Evelyn’s wife, Lynn Forester de Rothschild, was completely enamored with Epstein. Before his death, Epstein claimed that he loaned Lynn money when she was going through a divorce in the early ‘90s, before she became a Rothschild (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/08/the-mystery-of-ghislaine-maxwell-epstein-enabler). Lynn was responsible for setting up an introduction between Epstein and Bill Clinton in 1995 (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8362601/Bill-Clinton-confessed-Jeffrey-Epstein-slept-Monica-Lewinsky.html). Alan Dershowitz wrote an essay earlier this month where he opens by saying that he was introduced to Ghislaine Maxwell by Evelyn and Lynn de Rothschild (https://spectator.us/ghislaine-maxwell-know-jeffrey-epstein-alan-dershowitz/). Ghislaine lived in a NYC townhouse that Lynn (allegedly) sold to one of Epstein’s companies for more than $8 million below market value (https://www.businessinsider.com/ghislaine-maxwell-jeffrey-epstein-father-real-estate-assets-foundation-2019-8#until-2016-maxwell-lived-in-a-5-million-new-york-townhouse-bought-by-a-company-with-the-same-address-as-epsteins-business-office-10). While it is widely believed that Ghislaine introduced Epstein to Prince Andrew, there are conflicting accounts that claim that Lynn was the one who introduced the two (https://nypost.com/2020/07/11/ghislaine-maxwell-didnt-introduce-epstein-to-prince-andrew-pal/). The Rothschilds are also extremely close with the Clintons. They even spent part of their honeymoon in the White House during Bill’s presidency back in 2000 (https://www.politico.eu/article/economist-magazine-shareholders-british-commerce-rothschild/). They remain close to this day, as both Evelyn and Lynn have donated and contributed heavily to Hillary’s past campaigns.
Roumugere, Caroline: Carolyn is a jeweller who makes unique pieces inspired by her upbringing in Kenya (http://www.carolynroumeguere.com/about). Her father was a close friend of artist Salvador Dali.
Royle, Hon Lucinda: Wife of Rupert Ponsonby, 7th Baron de Mauley, a British politician. Daughter of Anthony Royle, Baron Fanshawe of Richmond, a Member of Parliament for Richmond, Surrey (1959-1983) and businessman. Royle coincidentally stepped down as MP shortly after the Elm Guest House scandal (https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/elm-guest-house-abuse-scandal-1857494) became known to the public. It turns out that British politicians and other high-ranking members of society were sexually abusing children. All of this happened in Richmond, where Royle served as MP. Of course, nobody has been charged. Oh yeah, the owner of Elm Guest House, Carole Kasir, who supposedly kept a list of Elm Guest House attendees, died under murky circumstances (https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/secret-files-prove-carole-kasir-11506791). Anthony Royle also famously sided with Michael Heseltine over Margaret Thatcher during the 1985 Westland Affair. Heseltine appeared earlier in the black book (check out the G-I thread for more info). Heseltine invested in Conservative Parliament member Harvey Proctor’s business after Proctor was forced to resign after it was revealed he had sexual relationships with and took nude pictures of male prostitutes aged 17-21 at his home (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/members-interests-top-tories-lose-on-proctors-shop-the-retailer-1445666.html). At the time, it was illegal to have same-sex relations with prostitutes under the age of 21.
Rucellai, Natalie: PR specialist for Rocco Forte Hotels. Used to do PR for Giorgio Armani. The Rucellai family married into the Medici family in 1461. Although the Rucellais are not a Black Nobility family, the Medici family certainly is.
Rudnick, Della: This is actually Della Rounick, the former CEO of the fashion company HE-RO Group. She is now an artist and sculptor.
Russel, Michelle: A senior executive in asset management.
Rust, Marina & Ian: Marina is a former contributing editor at Vogue (again) magazine. She is the granddaughter of Marshall Field III, an investment banker and heir to the Marshall Field department store fortune. Rust often attended the same parties as Ghislaine Maxwell. She is photographed here with Ghislaine, Tom Ford, and Countess Sally Albemarle (https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/photo/0010136), all of whom are in Epstein’s black book. She is also friends with Lauren du Pont of the billionaire family (https://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/traveling-down-memory-lane/). Her husband, Ian Connor is an investment banker at Lazard Freres, a bank that has repeatedly come up during research of Epstein’s contacts. Marina and Ian literally live around the block from Epstein’s NYC mansion.
Rustow, Tim: Uncertain, but my best guess would be the portfolio manager who is the son of Dankwart Rustow, a famous expert in political science and sociology, and brother of historian Marina Rustow.
Rutland Duke and Duchess: David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland, is the owner of Belvoir Castle. His wife, Emma Manners (nee Watkins), the Duchess of Rutland, is pictured here in front of the castle (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/emma-manner-duchess-of-rutland-during-the-launch-event-for-news-photo/1206547435?adppopup=true), enjoying her afternoon tea. She runs the commercial activities at Belvoir Castle. Manners has been (allegedly) entangled with Ghislaine Maxwell since the 1980s.
Now for the controversial stuff. The Duke and Duchess hired former MP Harvey Proctor in 2003 to be their private secretary. Proctor is a disgraced MP who was forced to resign in 1987 after it was revealed that he had sexual relationships with and took nude pictures of male prostitutes aged 17-21 at his home (source: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/members-interests-top-tories-lose-on-proctors-shop-the-retailer-1445666.html). At the time, it was illegal to have same-sex relations with prostitutes under the age of 21. There is a wonderful and brief expose here (https://theneedleblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/09/blackmail-the-maxwells-harvey-proctor-and-the-marquis-of-granby/) that builds a strong relationship between Proctor, Manners, and Ghislaine Maxwell, and explains why Manners would hire a disgraced pedophile as his personal secretary, which I will quickly sum up: Robert Maxwell’s newspapers were publishing damaging pieces on Harvey Proctor in 1986, when allegations of his sexual improprieties first started to leak. A threat was made by a caller who said if Maxwell continued running these stories on Proctor, they would reveal that Maxwell’s daughter, Ghislaine, was having an affair with the “son of a Duke.” This would be David Manners, who was not yet Duke of Rutland since his father (the 10th Duke of Rutland) was still alive. Manners dismissed the allegation as “nonsense,” but went on to hire Proctor in 2003, three years after Proctor’s shirtmaking business was liquidated. Some may say that Proctor would have the most to gain by threatening Robert Maxwell back in the ‘80s and that maybe he used that information to find a job with Manners once his shirt business went belly-up. This is all speculation, of course.
Ruttenberg, Eric & Perri: Eric is the co-managing partner at Tinicum, the private investment firm his father founded in 1974. His wife, Perri (nee Peltz), is a former broadcast journalist who worked for NBC, ABC (she worked on the show, 20/20, hosted by pedophile protector and friend of Ghislaine, Barbara Walters), and CNN from 1987-2002. Peltz is a member of the “Tennis Girls” (insert roll eyes emoji), a group that includes Epstein helper Peggy Siegal, Tory Burch, Christina Cuomo (Chris Cuomo’s wife), Ariadne Calvo-Platero, Kitty Sherrill, and Renee Rockefeller (https://pagesix.com/2011/12/23/tough-enough-for-jennet/). Everyone in that group is listed in Epstein’s black book except for Sherrill and Rockefeller. Coincidentally, Perri attended Dalton, the exclusive private high school, in the mid-late ‘70s when Epstein taught there.
Ryder, Mr Nicholas: Uncertain. Some info found but couldn’t confirm either way.

2003, continued
  • March 7-18, 2003: Fall
    • Jimmy discovers from Irene, one of his former elder law clients who represents the class in the Sandpiper Crossing lawsuit, that the company has offered a settlement which if accepted by D&M and HHM will result in a payment to Jimmy of $1.16 million. Irene has refused to accept the settlement because the D&M and HHM lawyers have advised her they believe they can get Sandpiper Crossing to offer more. Jimmy tries to persuade Howard to accept the settlement, but Howard refuses.
    • Howard and Chuck meet with their malpractice insurance agents, who inform them that the insurance carrier will need to raise HHM's premium substantially or arrange to have Chuck supervised by another attorney at all times. Chuck refuses and instead decides to fight the insurance company in court. Howard disagrees with Chuck's plan, and says Chuck will be forced to retire since his judgment can no longer be trusted. Chuck sues HHM for $8 million, the value of his share of the partnership.
    • Mike becomes a contracted "security consultant" to Madrigal, a paper transaction designed to launder his stolen money by having him give his cash to Lydia, and then receive monthly checks from Madrigal as supposed fees for his expert advice. Kim takes on Gatwood Oil as a second client in order to have an income sufficient to cover office expenses in case Jimmy can't pay his half while his law license is suspended. Nacho admits to his father that he is working for Hector, and begs him to follow Hector's orders. Nacho's father refuses and orders Nacho to leave his house.
    • Jimmy pulls a series of psychological and social manipulation tricks to turn Irene's friends against her, so that she believes refusing the Sandpiper settlement is against the interests of her fellow clients. She decides to accept it, meaning Jimmy will receive his much needed share. He returns to his office to give Kim the good news, but she is too busy preparing for an important meeting with Gatwood Oil and leaves in a rush. Due to fatigue from overwork, Kim falls asleep at the wheel and drives her car off the side of the road, crashing into a boulder.
  • March 18-22, 2003: Lantern
    • Jimmy visits Kim in the hospital, where her broken arm has been put in a cast. After she is discharged, the two return to the site of her car crash and Jimmy picks up her scattered Gatwood Oil papers. The following morning, Jimmy feels partly responsible for her accident because she took on a second client to keep their office open during the suspension of his law license. Kim replies that she alone is responsible, and expresses guilt at the possibility that she could have killed someone by falling asleep at the wheel.
    • Chuck promises to abandon his breach of contract lawsuit against HHM if he's allowed to keep his position with the firm. Instead, Howard presents Chuck a check for $3 million—the first of three installment payments. Chuck believed HHM couldn't afford to pay him $8 million, so he'd be able to stay with the firm, but Howard used loans and personal savings to raise enough for the first payment. Howard criticizes Chuck for putting his personal vendetta against Jimmy ahead of the firm's needs, but then praises Chuck profusely as he informs HHM's staff of Chuck's immediate retirement.
    • Hector attempts to bribe Nacho's father Manuel to allow him to use Manuel's upholstery shop as a front for Hector's drug business. Manuel demands that Hector leave, but Nacho reminds him that saying no to Hector could place their family at risk, so Manuel reluctantly takes the money. Francesca presents Kim with get-well gifts from her clients and Kim tells Francesca to cancel her meeting with Gatwood Oil and postpone her other appointments. They rent movies at a Blockbuster store, which Kim watches with Jimmy while staying home from work.
    • Jimmy tries to make amends with Chuck but Chuck tells Jimmy it's in his nature to hurt everybody around him and that he was never all that important to Chuck anyway. Chuck later relapses and his electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms cause him shut off the power to his house and stack all his appliances outside, then destroy the walls of his house and remove old wiring in an attempt to find out what's making his electricity meter continue to run. Unable to find the source, he finally destroys the meter itself.
    • Jimmy checks on Irene, expecting her friends to have forgiven her after she agreed to accept the Sandpiper settlement. To his shock, Irene's friends still don't trust her, because now they think she'll do anything to get on their good side. His attempts to take the blame himself make Irene's friends respect him more and her less. He finally stages an argument with Erin Brill, his former D&M colleague, in which he "accidentally" admits to the tricks he played to get Irene to accept, which vindicates Irene to her friends and causes Irene to withdraw her acceptance.
    • Nacho plans to ambush Hector in order to protect his father. Before he can act, he's pulled into a meeting between Hector, Gus, and Juan Bolsa. Bolsa says that because Salamanca family trucks have been attacked, their routes for smuggling drugs from Mexico to the U.S. are not safe, so from now on Gus's organization will handle the cross-border smuggling for both Gus's operation and Hector's. An enraged Hector suffers a stroke and collapses. As Mike advised, while Hector's bodyguards are calling for an ambulance and Gus is rendering first aid, Nacho takes the fake nitroglycerin capsules and replaces them with the real ones. Gus seems suspicious, but says nothing.
    • The next day, Jimmy and Kim move out of their office space. They apologize to Francesca for laying her off, but she says she will be able to return to her job at the Motor Vehicle Division. Kim insists that Jimmy keep his contact list, despite the fact that his admission to tricking Irene has guaranteed the end of his elder care law practice. That night, Chuck lies on a couch in his wrecked house and intentionally kicks a table several times. His kicks cause a gas lantern to fall and start a fire, but he makes no attempt to leave.
  • March 23-31, 2003: Smoke
    • Howard calls Jimmy and Kim about the fire at Chuck's, and they arrive as Chuck's body is taken away. Jimmy sees the appliances outside Chuck's home and realizes his electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms returned. He falls into a deep depression which Kim tries to help him out of. Howard takes on the responsibility of arranging Chuck's funeral.
    • Mike receives his first payment from Madrigal Electromotive as a contracted security consultant, which Gus arranged to launder the money Mike stole from the Salamancas. Though meant to be a paper transaction, Mike enters a Madrigal facility, performs a detailed security audit, and turns the results over to the facility manager with instructions to let Lydia know he was there.
    • An ambulance comes to take Hector to the hospital after he suffers a stroke at a meeting with Juan Bolsa, Gus and Nacho. Following Mike's advice, Nacho takes the fake capsules containing ibuprofen from Hector and replaces them with Hector's real nitroglycerin. He tries to dispose of the fakes but is interrupted by Gus, who says they need to meet with Juan Bolsa immediately. Bolsa puts Nacho and Arturo in charge of the Salamanca operation for the time being. Afterwards, Nacho drives to a bridge and throws the ibuprofen away, unaware Victor has followed him.
    • Several of Chuck's friends and associates attend his funeral and give Jimmy their condolences. After the service, Howard tells Jimmy and Kim he believes Chuck relapsed because Howard forced him out of HHM, so he feels responsible for Chuck's death. Kim is shocked as Jimmy lets Howard shoulder the blame and immediately regains his happy-go-lucky demeanor.
  • April 7, 2003: Breathe
    • Jimmy begins to look for a job as part of his suspension from legal practice. At Neff Copiers, he interviews for a sales position but they reject him given his legal background. As Jimmy leaves, he turns around and gives them the "hard sell" on needing the job immediately. The owners fall for the con, and Jimmy is upset for how easily they fell for it, and refuses to accept it. As he departs, he notices a collection of Hummel figurines among their awards.
    • Lydia meets with Mike to discuss his recent security audit, reminding him his job was only meant to be on paper as a front to launder the stolen money. Mike tells Lydia if she has any complaints to talk to Gus, and when she does, Gus tacitly approves of Mike's continued actions.
    • Howard meets with Kim and Rebecca to discuss Chuck's estate. This includes a sealed letter and US$5,000 for Jimmy, just enough to prevent him from challenging the will. After Rebecca leaves, Kim furiously accuses Howard of treating Jimmy poorly since his days in the mail room. That evening, Kim gives Jimmy the check, but decides to hold back on the letter. Jimmy checks on the value of the Hummel figurines at Neff Copiers and then calls Mike.
    • Gus learns that Hector is comatose, and arranges for Dr. Bruckner, a skilled physician from Johns Hopkins to oversee his treatment; additionally, Dr. Bruckner speaks fluent Spanish and is able to explain Hector's health and course of recovery to the Cousins who have arrived to watch over Hector. Tyrus brings Gus a copy of Hector's medical file, revealing there was no nitroglycerin in his system despite being part of his heart medication.
    • Nacho and Arturo arrive at the Los Pollos Hermanos chicken farm to take their share of the next drug shipment. Arturo strongarms Gus's men for an extra kilo as he had seen Nacho do in an earlier deal. As they leave, Gus suddenly leaps on Arturo and suffocates him in a plastic bag. Gus then tells Nacho he knows he switched Hector's medication, but has yet to tell the Salmancas. Gus warns Nacho, "From now on, you are mine."
  • April 8-9, 2003: Something Beautiful
    • Nacho aids Victor and Tyrus to make it appear that his car was attacked and the drugs picked up at Los Pollos Hermanos stolen, including riddling the car and Arturo's body with bullets and shooting Nacho twice. Nacho calls the Cousins, who burn the car and take Nacho to veterinarian Dr. Caldera, who succeeds in saving Nacho's life.
    • Juan Bolsa tells Gus that because drug and cash shipments have been disrupted several times, Gus should begin investigating the feasibility of making meth within the United States rather than relying on cocaine from Mexico, unaware this is what Gus intended. Gus visits Gale Boetticher, a post-graduate student and researcher at the University of New Mexico, who reports on the poor quality of a meth sample Gus asked him to evaluate. Gale says he could produce a higher quality product, but Gus assures him he is destined for better things.
    • Jimmy asks Mike to steal a valuable Hummel figurine from Neff Copiers and replace it with an inexpensive one that looks similar. Mike refuses, so Jimmy turns to Ira for help. Ira agrees, but during the theft, he finds one of the owners is sleeping in the office. He calls Jimmy for help and Jimmy creates a distraction that enables Ira to leave with the Hummel.
    • With her arm healed, Kim returns to work on the Mesa Verde account. Bank president Kevin Watchell welcomes her back and shows her plans for their aggressive expansion. Concerned about the rate of growth, and increasingly bored with banking law, Kim gives the work to her paralegal Viola, and asks to be dropped off at the courthouse.
    • That evening, Kim decides to give Jimmy the letter from Chuck that was part of Chuck's will. Jimmy reads the undated letter aloud, which appears to have been written while he worked in HHM's mailroom. It seems on the surface to be full of praise, but is slightly condescending and contains backhanded compliments. Jimmy calls it "nice", but Kim begins crying and runs off to their bedroom.
  • April 10-12, 2003: Talk
    • Mike is revealed to be discussing his son at a group therapy session with Stacey, and ends his time by saying "You wanted me to talk. I talked."
    • Jimmy is offered a position as a shift manager at a cellular phone store. He initially declines, but when Kim suggests he see a therapist instead, he accepts the position. The store sees little traffic, and Jimmy soon becomes bored. Ira meets with Jimmy to hand over his share of the stolen Hummel figurine and offers to steal others in the future.
    • Kim avoids Mesa Verde work by spending the day in Judge Munsinger's courtroom. He calls her to his office during a recess, warning her that if he sees her again in his courtroom, he will assign her pro bono work. When Munsinger returns to the bench, he spots Kim again waiting in the audience.
    • As part of covering up the fake attack on Nacho and Arturo, Victor sells the Salamanca's portion of the drugs to the Espinosas's, their rivals. After Nacho tips them off, the Cousins raid the Espinosas's headquarters, killing most of the gang and recovering the drugs. After returning the drugs, they retreat back to Mexico to avoid police scrutiny. Nacho recognizes that Gus had planned for this, as Gus is now able to expand into the Espinosas's territory without resistance. Nacho convinces his reluctant father to let him stay with him while he recovers from his wounds.
    • During lunch with Anita, Mike explains that Henry, another member of their support group, has been lying about his past, falsely claiming to have a wife who died. At the next meeting Mike is put in a bad mood when Stacey says she was able to get through most of a day without thinking of Matt, so he angrily confronts Henry about his lies. Having been exposed, Henry wordlessly leaves the room. Mike then condemns Anita, Stacey and the other participants for being so self-absorbed they are unable to see through Henry's obvious falsehoods.
    • After performing another Madrigal site inspection, Mike meets with Gus, who feigns anger that Mike did not tell him Nacho intended to kill Hector, but Mike points out that he had promised only not to kill Hector himself. Mike then asks Gus bluntly for information about "the job" he wants done.
  • April 13-14, 2003: Quite a Ride
    • Jimmy sells pay-as-you-go phones to a customer who saw his "privacy sold here" sign. He then starts selling prepaid phones on the street, but the venture proves unsuccessful when he is mugged by three teenagers. Kim tends his wounds while Jimmy is concerned that he did not realize the teenagers' intent because he was not thinking clearly. He promises to call the psychiatrist Kim recommended, but instead returns to CC Mobile and spends the day removing the storefront sign.
    • Mike escorts engineers through the laundry to evaluate it as a site for Gus's planned meth "superlab". One glibly asserts he can easily do the job, but is turned away by Gus, who listens in from a nearby room. Another, Werner Ziegler, impresses Gus by forthrightly expressing his concerns about the risk. Gus offers him the job of planning and overseeing the lab's construction.
    • Kim thrives in the environment of her pro bono criminal defense work. While waiting for a client to dress before going to court, Paige calls from Mesa Verde and insists they need her help immediately to fix recently filed paperwork. Kim hangs up on Paige and sees her criminal case through, then goes to Mesa Verde. Paige informs her that the bank's legal staff had to drop everything else to fix the problem, and reminds her that when she became Mesa Verde's outside counsel, she promised that the bank would be her sole focus. Kim apologizes and promises it will not happen again.
    • Jimmy meets Howard in the courthouse restroom and sees that he is looking sleepless, but Howard does not divulge why. Jimmy offers Howard the phone number of the psychiatrist Kim recommended. Howard claims he is going to therapy, so Jimmy throws the number away. Jimmy meets with his probation officer and states his intent to resume practicing law once the one-year suspension of his law license is over.
  • April 15, 2003: Piñata
    • Late at night, Kim tries to review her Mesa Verde records for the next day's work, but her attention is drawn to her pro bono criminal defense cases. She goes to bed and finds Jimmy asleep, surrounded by notes and sketches that show he still dreams of re-starting the Wexler-McGill law office once his suspension is over. The next morning, Jimmy explains that he decided not to go to the psychologist as she suggested, and leaves for work at the cell phone store. Kim meets with Rich at Schweikart & Cokely, where she makes a successful pitch to join as a partner and run a new banking division, which will enable her to handle both Mesa Verde and criminal cases. She informs Jimmy of her acceptance over lunch, falsely telling him that Schweikart & Cokely sought her out. He leaves the table and experiences an anxiety attack, but returns to congratulate her and tell her he's supportive.
    • While at the cellular phone store, Jimmy gets a call from a relative of his first elder law client, Geraldine Strauss, and learns that she died and the relative is her executor. The executor asks questions about the will Jimmy drew up. He explains that he no longer practices law and refers the executor to HHM. Jimmy breaks down emotionally from the call, and after work, Jimmy re-watches his first elder law commercial, which starred Geraldine.
    • Gus and Mike discuss arrangements for housing Werner Ziegler and his construction crew while they build the meth "superlab" under the laundry. While Gus has already installed two modular homes within a large warehouse for basic needs, Mike recommends adding several amenities to keep the workers happy, as well as security and monitoring provisions for both entrance and exit. Gus agrees, and after learning that Hector's health has taken a turn for the worse, has Mike work with Tyrus to complete preparations. Mike apologizes to Stacey for his behavior in exposing Henry's lies at the support group meeting, and Stacey allows him to begin seeing Kaylee again. Mike meets Werner and his workers when they arrive, and explains their living arrangements. Kai, one of the workers, appears dismissive and disdainful, but Werner vouches for him and says he'll settle in once the work starts. Despite Werner's assurances, Mike tells his security team to pay special attention to Kai's activities.
    • Gus visits a still hospitalized and unconscious Hector late at night and recounts a childhood story about a coati that ate the fruit from a lúcuma tree Gus had carefully tended in Chile. He trapped the coati, which broke its leg in trying to escape. Rather than killing it, which would have been humane, Gus held it and let it suffer until it died. As Gus finishes the story, he gets up to depart, with Hector still unconscious in his bed.
    • Jimmy visits HHM to pick up his $5,000 inheritance check, and notices the firm is downsizing and Howard is still disengaged and depressed following Chuck's death. Howard explains that HHM is having trouble paying out to Chuck's estate and its reputation has been severely damaged by recent events, so clients are leaving. Before departing, Jimmy tries a "tough love" pep talk to rouse Howard back into action. Jimmy uses the money to buy pay-as-you-go phones for resale on the street, which he stores at the nail salon against Mrs. Nguyen's wishes. He preemptively seeks out the three teenagers who robbed him before and tries to convince them to either help sell his phones for a share of the profits, or take a smaller cut as protection money for leaving him alone. They attempt to rob him again instead, but he leads them on a chase that ends with the boys caught in a trap sprung by Huell and Man Mountain. They tie the boys up and hang them upside down. While Huell and Man Mountain use bats to smash through a room full of piñatas close to their heads, Jimmy obtains an agreement that the boys will leave him alone and tell everyone else on the street that he's off-limits.
  • April 16 - December 31, 2003: Something Stupid
    • Over eight months, Jimmy and Kim are shown to be drifting further apart, even as they continue to live together. Kim's arm heals and her cast is removed, leaving her less dependent on Jimmy. She thrives at Schweikart & Cokely, with the Mesa Verde expansion proceeding on schedule, and Kim finding time to continue the pro bono criminal defense work that gives her personal satisfaction. Jimmy continues his boring job at the cellular phone store, but his side business re-selling prepaid phones on the street continues to grow. Jimmy's increasing contacts with Albuquerque's criminals cause him to frequently use the "Saul Goodman" alias. The time jump ends in early 2004, with Kim and Jimmy on opposite sides of Kim's bed, still in split-screen, while Kim's side slowly goes dark.
    • Hector begins to recover, and Dr. Bruckner helps with his therapy. Dr. Bruckner shows Gus video footage of a session which indicates Hector has improved cognitively and has limited mobility in his right hand, a sign the therapy is working. Dr. Bruckner dismisses Hector knocking a glass of water over as an involuntary action, but Gus sees that Hector did it purposely so he could ogle the nurse who bent over to clean it up. Gus tells Dr. Bruckner to end further treatment, in effect trapping Hector's healed mind inside his unhealed body.
    • Werner's crew begins excavating the meth "superlab" under the industrial laundry. The work proceeds more slowly than anticipated, and when Casper accidentally knocks over a ceiling support with the skid-steer loader he's driving, Kai and Casper get into a shoving match. Mike intervenes to stop the fight and later meets the crew at their warehouse quarters, where Werner apologizes for their behavior. Mike wonders if they would be better off without Kai, but Werner suggests that his crew just needs some rest and relaxation, since they have been on the job far longer than anticipated.

  • January 1-16, 2004: Something Stupid
    • Jimmy shows Huell a prospective space for his new law offices, which he plans to finance with the profits from his cellular phone side business. Kim takes Jimmy to a reception at Schweikart & Cokely; initially charming and gracious, he increasingly feels out of place, and ducks into Kim's office. As he looks around, he realizes how successful she is, and how much better her office is than the one he showed Huell. He returns to the party and embarrasses Kim by making a fool of himself during a conversation with Rich and the other S & C lawyers.
    • Jimmy continues to re-sell phones on the street, with his business now based in the back of a van on the outskirts of town. An off-duty police officer in plain clothes arrives and displays one of Jimmy's business cards, which he took from a drug dealer who purchased one of Jimmy's phones. He suggests Jimmy target a better class of customers and Jimmy argues that he's running a legal, legitimate business. During the dispute, Huell returns from a trip to buy lunch. Because he's wearing headphones, he doesn't understand the context of the argument, and strikes the police officer with a shopping bag containing sandwiches before Jimmy can stop him. The officer knows Huell from past interactions and arrests him. Jimmy is still a month from being reinstated to the bar, and can't represent Huell, so he enlists Kim's aid. Kim reluctantly accepts, but refuses to use unethical tricks to ruin the police officer's reputation. She wants Jimmy to assure that Huell will not flee before his court appearance, but Jimmy's reply is less than convincing. Kim tries to plea bargain with Suzanne Ericsen, the prosecutor in Huell's case, but his arrest record precludes Suzanne from agreeing to a deal. On her way to meet with Huell, Kim stops to buy office supplies and then calls Jimmy to tell him to stop whatever he's doing to help Huell, because she has a better way to handle the situation.
  • January 17 - February 1, 2004: Coushatta
    • Kim enlists Schweikart & Cokely employees to aid Huell's defense and previews a plan to bury prosecutor Suzanne Ericsen in motions and paperwork when Suzanne refuses to budge on seeking the maximum 18-month sentence for Huell. Jimmy takes a bus trip to Huell's hometown, Coushatta, Louisiana. Along the way, he uses the office supplies Kim purchased to write postcards and letters of support for Huell, and enlists the other passengers to help. The mail is completed with Coushatta return addresses and Jimmy sends it from there so it will have a Coushatta postmark. When Judge Munsinger receives the mail supporting Huell, he insists on avoiding a trial, so Suzanne and Kim try to reach a plea deal. Suzanne is suspicious and investigates, but Jimmy has arranged for pay-as-you-go cellular phones to receive Suzanne's calls, which he and the student film crew who made his TV ads answer with scripted lines that vouch for Huell as a hometown hero. Jimmy has also created a fake website for the Coushatta church which appears to take donations to aid in Huell's defense. The phony show of support convinces Suzanne, and she makes a favorable deal that keeps Huell out of prison. Kim and Jimmy make out in a courthouse stairwell and have celebratory sex that night.
    • The next day, Kim meets with Kevin and Paige to discuss the ongoing Mesa Verde bank expansion. Kevin is still interested in rapid growth, but an increasingly uninterested Kim counsels caution. Later that day, she pulls out the tequila bottle stopper she kept as a souvenir of the previous scam she ran with Jimmy and reminisces. Jimmy scouts for new offices in anticipation of having his law license restored. Kim is elated by the success of their trick and indicates to Jimmy that she wants to engage in similar behavior in the future.
    • Mike arranges a strip club outing for Werner and his construction crew. Mike and Werner head to a quieter bar to talk personally, but Kai starts a fight at the strip club and Mike has to return to restore order. By the time he gets back to the bar, Werner is drunk and discussing with strangers the engineering details of underground concrete construction. The next day, Mike explains to Werner that even though he did not expose precise information about the meth lab, the men he spoke to would likely remember him, making it possible for someone to discover who built it and who owns it. Werner promises it won't happen again, and Mike makes a veiled reference to the likelihood that he will be killed if it does, which Werner acknowledges he understands. Mike updates Gus on construction and reports on the reasons for the delays, including the need to blast through a solid rock wall to install an elevator. He informs Gus about Werner's conversation at the bar and assures Gus he's keeping a watchful eye on Werner to prevent a similar action from happening again.
    • Nacho has recovered from his gunshot wounds and takes on a more prominent role in the Salamanca organization. During weekly collections from their drug dealers, Nacho trains Domingo to handle punishment for dealers short in their weekly payments the same way Hector taught Nacho to do when Domingo was short. When placing money in his safe, he looks at the fake Manitoba identity cards he's had prepared for himself and his father. To his surprise, Eduardo "Lalo" Salamanca arrives to aid in running the family business. Unlike Hector, who did not concern himself with day-to-day details, Lalo seems to be interested in every aspect of the enterprise, giving Nacho cause for concern.
  • February 8-February 12, 2004: Wiedersehen
    • Jimmy and Kim successfully work a scam to replace the approved plans for the Mesa Verde bank branch in Lubbock, Texas with plans for a bigger building without going through the city government's lengthy refiling process. On their way back to Albuquerque, Jimmy talks of getting reinstated to the bar the next day, and using their combined abilities for more scams, but Kim counsels caution.
    • Jimmy attends his reinstatement hearing and answers the committee's questions. One member throws him off at the end by asking why he wants to practice law and who inspired him; Jimmy pauses a bit at both but still provides eloquent answers. They tell him that they will let him know the results by mail in a few days, but Jimmy becomes nervous after he leaves and waits near the hearing room. When the committee leaves, he finds out from their secretary that they have denied his reinstatement. When Jimmy confronts the panel's chairman, he tells Jimmy that some of his answers were insincere, and he can apply for reinstatement again in a year.
    • Kim and Jimmy meet in the parking garage of S&C's office building and Jimmy complains about how he was treated during the hearing. Kim identifies the problem, and points out that Jimmy never mentioned Chuck in his last two answers; since his dispute with Chuck was the reason for his suspension, the panel members considered his answers to be less than genuine. Jimmy gets defensive about his relationship with Chuck, and argues with Kim. He accuses Kim of "slumming" with him any time she needs a favor or wants to run a con, and says she sees him only as "Slippin' Jimmy". Kim angrily points out that she has been Jimmy's biggest supporter since they first met, and has helped him recover from all his mistakes. That night, Jimmy returns to Kim's apartment and wordlessly starts packing his belongings. He admits he screwed up at the hearing and damaged their relationship, and Kim asks if he still wants to be a lawyer. He says he does, and Kim says she will help make it happen.
  • February 13: Kim's 36th birthday
  • February 14- March 21, 2004: Wiedersehen
    • Lalo and Nacho visit Hector, who has been transferred to a nursing home, and communicates only by moving the index finger of his right hand. Lalo reminds Hector of the time he burned down a hotel and killed its owner after the owner, a former college professor, treated Hector disrespectfully. He reveals he kept a souvenir — a concierge bell from the front desk. He ties the bell to Hector's wheelchair, allowing Hector to communicate more effectively. Lalo asks Nacho to step away while he talks to Hector about Gus and then asks Nacho to take him to Los Pollos Hermanos so he can meet Gus in person. Gus acts happy to meet Lalo, but gives Nacho an angry glare, and Nacho can only look back apologetically. Lalo tells Gus that the Salamancas are appreciative of Gus' efforts to save Hector and postulates that perhaps Don Eladio wants continued bad blood between Gus and the Salamancas in order to preserve his own position. Lalo suggests that perhaps Gus and the Salamancas should cooperate more closely, but Gus states he is happy with the current arrangements. Lalo then takes back his original statement, replying that the Salamancas would never really do anything to injure their relationship with Eladio. Lalo asks Nacho to take him to Gus' chicken farm so he can see the location where the Salamancas pick up their drugs after Gus' trucks bring the shipments over the border.
    • Werner and his crew prepare to blast the rock preventing construction of the elevator in the meth lab under the laundry. When the pre-firing test fails, Werner traces the electrical wire for one of the charges. While in the construction area, he suffers a panic attack before finding a splice that has come apart. He repairs it, returns to the rest of the crew, and pretends there's nothing wrong, though his hands are shaking behind his back. Tyrus drives a semi-truck over a pothole outside the laundry in a move timed to coincide with the detonation, which masks its sound and shock. Werner's crew celebrates the successful blast, knowing the end of their longer than expected job is in sight. Werner admits to Mike that he misses his wife and asks if it's possible to fly to Germany for a weekend, and then come back to finish the work. Instead, Mike offers Werner a longer than usual phone call with his wife, which Werner accepts. After the call, Werner returns to his housing unit, but looks around the warehouse at the video cameras. When Mike receives his morning report from the on duty security team the next day, he notices a few monitors show displays with dead pixels. He and his team check the warehouse, and find that Werner used a laser to temporarily disable the cameras by increasing their voltage, creating a flash effect of several seconds that permitted him to move through the warehouse undetected. He then used a hacksaw blade to cut through the padlocks for the doors leading to the roof, and escaped by climbing down the building's maintenance ladder.
  • March 22 - April 1, 2004: Winner
    • Mike arranges a search party to locate Werner Ziegler, while he tries to track down Werner through a money wire agency by pretending to be Werner's brother-in-law and convincing the clerk to let him look at the security camera footage. After confirming that Werner had been there, Mike meets with Gus and shows him the note Werner left indicating he would be gone for four days to be with his wife, and would return to complete the work on the meth lab. Gus confirms that Werner's wife is due at the Denver International Airport within the day. Mike convinces Gus to let him try to find Werner and make him return rather than kill him. While reviewing the transcript of the last call Werner made to his wife from the warehouse, Mike discovers that he is likely going to a local hot spring, and begins calling hotels near facilities in the New Mexico area.
    • Lalo stakes out Gus' chicken farm, where he sees Gus, Victor, and Tyrus leaving to search for Werner. He follows and observes the meeting between Gus and Mike. He tails Mike as Mike continues to search for Werner, but Mike notices the car that's following him and evades it. Lalo goes back to the money wire agency where he saw Mike meet with Gus, but the clerk refuses to give him any information, so he kills the clerk and reviews the security camera footage that shows Mike picking up tourist pamphlets for the hot springs, then burns down the building. Lalo calls hotels until he locates Werner and then places a call to him in which Lalo pretends to work for Gus, enabling him to extract some details of Werner's work on the "superlab" before Mike arrives at Werner's location and ends the call.
    • Mike takes Werner to a remote site and calls Gus to inform him of Lalo's activities. Gus realizes that Lalo knows about Werner and can trace his work back to Gus, so he intends to send men to kill Werner, but Mike persuades Gus to let him do it. Mike has Werner call his wife at the airport and convince her to return to Germany, then assures him that his men will be sent home without incident. He also promises to make Werner's death look like an accident and ensure there's a believable story for authorities to accept, so that his wife will know he died but won't wonder how or why. Werner walks off to look up at the stars and Mike shoots him in the head. Later, Mike meets Gus at the construction site, which Gus is showing to Gale, and it is revealed that the underground meth "superlab" has been created in accordance with Gale's design.
    • On the anniversary of Chuck's death, Jimmy and Kim place "in memoriam" ads in the local newspapers. Jimmy then spends the day feigning mourning at Chuck's gravesite as several of Chuck's former associates visit it. Later that day, Howard holds a celebration to dedicate a law library reading room in Chuck's name, at which he announces HHM's recovery from its recent setbacks. The reading room was paid for by an anonymous donor, but Kim and Drama Girl, who's working as a server at the catered event, reveal to the guests as gossip the fact that Jimmy was the anonymous donor. Kim has Jimmy use these events to his advantage prior to the reinstatement appeal, hoping to influence the panel by showing that despite how he appeared during his first hearing, Jimmy is actually grief-stricken over Chuck's death. Later, Jimmy and Howard sit on a panel reviewing potential candidates for scholarships in Chuck's name. Jimmy focuses on Christy, a student whose background includes a shoplifting charge when she was younger, and tries unsuccessfully to persuade the other board members to award her a scholarship. He follows her out to give her the bad news, and tells her the results were predetermined because the wealthy and powerful will never look past her mistake. He uses the same phrase Chuck used to cut ties with him - that she's "not all that important" to them[a] - and encourages her not to stick to the straight and narrow path she is trying to follow, but to cut corners and do whatever is necessary to succeed because "the winner takes it all". In the parking garage afterward, Jimmy's car won't start and he weeps uncontrollably out of frustration for Christy's situation, recognizing the similarities between her circumstances and his.
    • When Jimmy returns home, Kim is preparing a speech for Jimmy to use at his appeal, and he makes the same point about himself that he made to Christy about her situation - that no matter how hard he tries to overcome his past, the people with wealth and power won't let him. At his appeal hearing, Jimmy begins to use Chuck's last letter to him as part of his argument, but stops midway and gives a seemingly impromptu speech about his remorse for Chuck's death, how much Chuck influenced his decision to pursue the law as a career, and how hard he'll work to be worthy of the McGill name if he's reinstated. Jimmy's speech earns visibly emotional expressions from the panel and from Kim. He wins reinstatement and then stuns Kim by revealing that his speech was actually an insincere performance. When the panel's secretary arrives to lead Jimmy to the office where he'll fill out the paperwork so he can regain his law license, he asks for a doing business as form and states his intention not to practice law under the name "McGill". As he walks down the hall, an even more shocked Kim asks Jimmy what he's doing. He briefly turns around to face her and says "S'all good, man!"

2002, Continued
  • June 20-22, 2002: Alpine Shepherd Boy
    • Two police officers arrive at Chuck's house after his neighbor calls 911 to report the stolen newspaper. Chuck refuses to open the door because of his electromagnetic hypersensitivity. One officer walks around to the basement door, where he finds that the electric lines to the circuit breaker panel have been cut, and there are several empty camping fuel cans from Chuck's lanterns and cook stove laying about. Combining this with Chuck's ramblings about probable cause case law, the two officers mistakenly conclude that Chuck is producing methamphetamine, kick down his front door, and taser him.
    • Tycoon Big Ricky Sipes offers Jimmy $1 million in cash to help him secede from the United States. Jimmy's excitement at the windfall quickly dissipates when the wealthy eccentric reveals he plans to pay him using his custom printed currency. He visits another prospective client, Roland Jaycocks, who asks him to help patent an invention called "Tony the Toilet Buddy", a training toilet that plays recordings of what are supposed to be encouraging phrases to children as they use it. All the phrases are sexual innuendos and when Jimmy points this out, an incensed Roland chases him out of the house. Finally, Jimmy visits Mrs. Strauss, an elderly woman who collects porcelain Hummel figurines, one of which is a rare and valuable alpine shepherd boy. He assists her with estate planning, which consists mostly of allocating her Hummels to various friends and relatives. Mrs. Strauss finds Jimmy's personality charming, and he offers to take half his fee in advance and half after the will is completed, but she pays the full amount upfront in cash.
    • That evening, Jimmy entertains Kim with tales of his eventful day. With two wills and a living trust to his credit, she suggests a career in elder law. Jimmy considers, but is interrupted when Kim takes a call from Howard, who tells her Chuck is in the hospital. In Chuck's hospital room, Jimmy and Kim explain Chuck's condition to a skeptical doctor. She proves Chuck's electromagnetic hypersensitivity is not genuine by turning on the bed's control panel without Chuck noticing. She recommends Chuck be committed to a mental institution, but Chuck wants to go home. Jimmy initially decides to comply with Chuck's wishes, but Howard arrives and tells Jimmy he convinced the DA to make sure Chuck is not committed. Jimmy believes Howard is putting the firm's needs ahead of Chuck's, knowing that if Chuck is committed, Jimmy will become his guardian and have authority to accept HHM's severance offer on Chuck's behalf. Although he scares Howard by threatening to commit Chuck, severing Howard's connection to his "cash cow", Jimmy tells Kim he is not really going to do it, only saying so to irritate Howard.
    • Jimmy leaves the hospital with Chuck and takes him home. At Chuck's house, Jimmy discovers that Chuck has learned of his billboard rescue. Jimmy promises Chuck that he will play by the rules going forward, but Chuck is skeptical. After mimicking Andy Griffith's clothing and mannerisms from Matlock, Jimmy promotes his new specialty at a nursing home by printing a slogan on the bottom of Jell-O containers: "Need a will? Call McGill." Exiting the courthouse parking lot, Jimmy gives Mike a business card that has the same slogan printed on it.
    • After his shift, Mike parks outside a woman's house. She comes out of the house, gets in her car, and stares at Mike uncomfortably for several moments before they each drive away in opposite directions. At his home, Mike is visited by several police officers. He recognizes one detective and asks, "Long way from home, aren't you?", to which the detective replies, "You and me both."
  • June 22, 2002: Five-O
    • The police officers who met Mike at his house are from Philadelphia. Detectives Sanders (whom Mike knows) and Abbasi attempt to question Mike, who requests a lawyer and gives them Jimmy's card. Mike asks Jimmy to "accidentally" spill his coffee on Abbasi so he can steal Abbasi's notebook and investigate how much the police know about him, but Jimmy declines. In the interrogation, the detectives explain they're investigating the death of Mike's son Matt, a rookie police officer who was ambushed and killed when responding to a shots-fired call. In addition, Matt's partners, Troy Hoffman and Jack Fenske, were shot and killed in a similar ambush six months later. The detectives know Hoffman and Fenske were dirty, and suspect Mike of killing them since he left Philadelphia shortly after their deaths. Jimmy moves to end the interrogation and spills his coffee on Abbasi. Mike pretends to help Abbasi clean his jacket and steals the notebook from his breast pocket.
    • At home, Mike discovers from the notebook that Stacey summoned the detectives to Albuquerque. She tells Mike that after she arrived in Albuquerque, she discovered several thousand dollars hidden in the lining of one of her suitcases. She decided to report it, hoping it would lead to the identification of Matt's killer. She suggests that she believes Matt might have been dirty, which angers Mike.
    • Mike admits to Stacey that corruption was rampant in Matt's precinct, to include Mike himself. When Hoffman started accepting bribes from a gang he offered to cut Matt in. Matt asked for Mike's advice, and Mike suggested that not taking the money would mark him as a whistleblower, which could endanger him and his family, so it would be better to accept it. Mike admitted to Matt that he participated in the corruption, leaving Matt upset that the father he looked up to is a criminal. Matt ultimately accepted the money, but didn't spend any, yet Hoffman and Fenske murdered him anyway because his hesitation before accepting made them fear he'd turn them in later. Mike is tormented over corrupting Matt for nothing, saying in tears of anguish "I broke my boy!" Stacey asks who killed Hoffman and Fenske, and Mike says "You know what happened. The question is: can you live with it?"
  • June 23-25, 2002: Bingo
    • At the police station, Jimmy and Mike return Detective Abbasi's notebook, claiming they found it in the parking lot. Despite Abbasi's accusations, Detective Sanders privately assures Mike that he has little to fear. Jimmy finds Chuck standing outside his home, claiming to be building up tolerance to electromagnetic fields. Jimmy stores legal documents at Chuck's house with the ulterior motive of involving him in cases and restarting his interest in the law. Jimmy brings Kim to an office suite he is considering for his practice and asks her to be his partner. She turns him down due to her loyalty to Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill.
    • Kim meets with the Kettlemans and proposes a plea deal that includes a sixteen-month prison sentence, return of the $1.6 million in embezzled money, and an admission of guilt. Since losing a trial would mean a thirty-year prison sentence for Craig, she recommends this course of action. However, Betsy rejects the deal, maintaining her husband's innocence and denying there is any money to return. They fire Kim and hire Jimmy, who initially urges them to accept the plea bargain. Betsy blackmails Jimmy by pointing out that the "retainer" the Kettlemans paid Jimmy would implicate him in their crime. While picking up records from HHM, Jimmy discovers that Kim has been demoted as a result of losing the Kettlemans as clients.
    • Jimmy enlists Mike's help, and Mike sprays a fluorescent liquid on a stack of bills, which he plants on a toy truck left outside by one of the Kettleman children. The Kettlemans find it, assume it came from the embezzled $1.6 million, add it to the rest of the cash in their hiding place. Mike breaks in and uses a blacklight to trace the stolen money to a false bottom in a bathroom cabinet. Jimmy has Mike deliver the money to the district attorney, and Mike tells Jimmy that completing this task will satisfy the debt he owes Jimmy for Jimmy's aid in stealing the detective's notebook. The next day, Jimmy visits the Kettlemans. When they discover the money missing, Betsy again threatens to reveal that Jimmy is also guilty. Jimmy replies that if she does that, she will be guilty of a crime for having given him the bribe money. If Betsy and Craig are both convicted, the Kettleman children will grow up without both parents. The Kettlemans agree to return to HHM and accept the plea deal Kim negotiated, deciding that only one parent going to prison is their best option. A frustrated Jimmy returns to his prospective office space to release his anger.
  • June 26-28, 2002: RICO
    • Jimmy grows suspicious when a client mentions her nursing home, Sandpiper Crossing, controls her pension and Social Security payments by giving her a $500 monthly allowance, deducting fees, and putting the rest in savings. Upon reviewing her invoices, Jimmy's suspicions grow and he begins collecting invoices from other residents. Jimmy and Chuck analyze the documents and find evidence of Sandpiper Crossing systematically overcharging residents, making the company guilty of fraud. Chuck suggests there are grounds for a class action lawsuit, and encourages Jimmy to continue looking for evidence.
    • Jimmy is turned away at Sandpiper Crossing's front desk, preventing him from seeing his clients or meeting with prospective new ones. He can hear that papers are being shredded in the nearby office and goes to a bathroom to hastily write a demand letter on toilet paper, which informs Sandpiper Crossing to cease document destruction. He hands the letter to a manager as he's being escorted from the premises, and later rummages through a dumpster hoping to find more evidence. He finds plastic bags containing the shredded paperwork, which Chuck and Jimmy sort through and piece together to recover an incriminating document. With a solid case against Sandpiper Crossing, Chuck decides to become Jimmy's co-counsel in the case, and Sandpiper Crossing's attorneys agree to a meeting.
    • Mike babysits Kaylee for the day. When Stacey returns from work, she asks Mike what to do with the bribe money Matt hid in her suitcase. Mike tells her she should use it for herself and her daughter so some good can come of it. Stacey tells Mike that even if she uses it, she still doesn't have enough to cover living expenses for Kaylee and herself. Mike returns to Dr. Caldera to follow up on his previous offer of illegal work. He gives Kaylee the dog he used as cover for his visit to Caldera, and promises Stacey he'll cover the costs of keeping it.
    • Sandpiper Crossing's attorneys deny the company is defrauding residents, but concede some were overcharged. The company offers $100,000 to compensate them, but Jimmy presents evidence that Sandpiper Crossing engages in illicit interstate commerce, which makes them eligible for a RICO case. Chuck demands Sandpiper Crossing pay $20 million to settle, which their attorneys refuse. As Chuck and Jimmy prepare to take the case to court, an exhausted Jimmy leaves some paperwork in his car. Preoccupied with his work, Chuck casually leaves his house to retrieve the documents, with none of the usual precautions he takes because of his electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Jimmy is speechless as he watches from inside the front door, then softly calls Chuck's name. Chuck is suddenly stunned to realize where he is and the box of papers falls from his hands.
  • June 28-30, 2002: Pimento
    • Jimmy and Chuck prepare for their lawsuit against Sandpiper Crossing. Chuck warns Jimmy that their attorneys will attempt to file a restraining order to keep him off their property, but Jimmy goes to the courthouse and prevents it from being approved. Upon returning to Chuck's house, he finds that Sandpiper Crossing's attorneys have resorted to a document dump, requiring Chuck and Jimmy to read through several boxes of paperwork before they can respond. Chuck does not believe that he and Jimmy can handle the case alone and suggests that they refer it to Hamlin Hamlin & McGill. Jimmy is reluctant to involve HHM, but arranges a meeting. While Jimmy is asleep, Chuck sneaks out of the house and uses Jimmy's phone to make a call.
    • The next morning, Howard prepares for Chuck and Jimmy's arrival at HHM by confiscating everybody's phones and shutting down the building's electricity. The entire staff greets Chuck's return with a standing ovation. Howard is confident they have a strong case against Sandpiper Crossing and offers to give Jimmy twenty percent of the final settlement or judgment, as well as an of counsel fee of $20,000. However, he makes it clear that Jimmy will not be working on the case or with HHM. This angers Jimmy, who demands to know why he has repeatedly been excluded from the firm. When Howard does not answer his questions, Jimmy decides not to give the case to HHM. Kim confronts Howard about his treatment of Jimmy. Howard resists telling her the reason for his actions, but then confides the truth.
    • Mike receives a job offer to bodyguard Daniel Wormald ("Pryce"), who wants to sell pills stolen from his employer. Pryce initially considers Mike, Sobchak and Man Mountain for the job. Sobchak mocks Mike for carrying no weapons, only a pimento cheese sandwich for lunch. Mike defends himself against Sobchak's attack and disarms him, which prompts a frightened Man Mountain to flee. Pryce drives Mike to an abandoned factory where Mike coaches Pryce on how to act during the drug deal. Nacho arrives and hands over a large sum of cash. When Pryce notes the payment is twenty dollars short, Mike calmly demands that Nacho pay in full. Nacho attempts to intimidate Mike, but pays when he realizes Mike cannot be cowed. As they leave, Mike tells Pryce he had researched Nacho ahead of time and knows this deal was carried out without his bosses' knowledge, so Nacho wouldn't have risked a confrontation.
    • Kim meets Jimmy and suggests he take Howard's offer for the Sandpiper Crossing case, which will enable him to start his own firm. After rejecting Kim's advice, Jimmy checks his phone and realizes Chuck used it the night before. The next day, Jimmy informs Chuck that he will accept Howard's deal, having deduced that Chuck was using Howard to keep Jimmy out of HHM. Jimmy demands to know why and Chuck tells him "You're not a real lawyer!" because Jimmy got his degree from an unaccredited law school. Chuck says he was proud when Jimmy stopped running cons and worked in the HHM mailroom, but he could never be an attorney at HHM because he hasn't changed. Feeling betrayed, Jimmy cuts his ties with Chuck.
  • June 30 - July 18, 2002: Marco
    • Jimmy hands the Sandpiper Crossing case over to HHM and reveals that he figured out Chuck was sabotaging his career. Howard apologizes for his involvement and gives Jimmy his $20,000 of counsel fee. Jimmy requests that Howard take over caring for Chuck, including buying his groceries and daily newspapers, and Howard is impressed with the amount of time and effort Jimmy has devoted to Chuck's well-being.
    • Jimmy hosts bingo at the local senior center. After an improbable string of numbers beginning with the letter "B" are drawn at the start of a game, he fixates on words beginning with that letter which remind him of Chuck, including "betrayal" and "brother". Jimmy breaks down and rants about taking revenge against Chet, who "may have" owed him money or cheated with his wife, by defecating through the sunroof of Chet's car (a move he calls the "Chicago Sunroof") without realizing Chet's children were in the backseat. Since Chet had connections to law enforcement officials, he had the District Attorney file charges for indecent exposure, which could have forced Jimmy to register as a sex offender if he were convicted. Chuck managed to have the charges dropped, but Jimmy attributes his current situation to that event. He quits hosting the bingo game and storms out.
    • After returning to Cicero, Jimmy reunites with Marco. They run a scam on an unsuspecting businessman, which involves the sale of a "rare, valuable JFK half-dollar". Jimmy and Marco spend several days running cons. At the end of the week, Jimmy has multiple messages from his elderly clients asking where he is. Jimmy explains to Marco that he is a budding elder law attorney, and that he must return to Albuquerque to see to his clients. Marco is envious that Jimmy has a legitimate career, pointing out that he has a dead end job thanks to his brother in law and nothing to live for but his cons. Marco convinces Jimmy to stay for one last con, to which Jimmy reluctantly agrees. While running the "fake Rolex" scam (previously seen in "Hero"), Marco suffers a heart attack and collapses. Jimmy rushes to his aid, and before dying Marco thanks Jimmy for providing the greatest week of his life. Jimmy inherits Marco's pinky ring, which he begins to wear even though it's too big, and which Saul Goodman wears throughout the events of Breaking Bad.
    • Kim calls Jimmy to report that the Sandpiper case has grown too big for HHM to handle, requiring them to partner with Davis & Main, a Santa Fe firm. Because of his detailed knowledge of the case and rapport with the clients, D&M is interested in hiring Jimmy as an associate and placing him on track to become a partner. Jimmy arranges to meet his prospective employer at the courthouse, but as he walks through the parking lot, he looks at Marco's pinky ring and stops. As he's about to drive away, he stops at the attendant's booth and asks Mike why they didn't keep the $1.6 million they took from the Kettlemans. Mike recalls Jimmy didn't take the money because he wanted to do the "right thing", and says he didn't take it because he was "hired to do a job and he did it." Jimmy assures Mike he will not make the same mistake again, and drives off while humming "Smoke on the Water", the same song Marco was humming just before he died.
  • July 8: Walt Jr’s 9th birthday
  • July 18-25, 2002: Switch
    • Jimmy declines Davis & Main's employment offer in Santa Fe, closes down his law practice, and uses a stolen credit card to vacation under an assumed name at a luxury hotel. Kim confronts Jimmy about his decision, but he's content since his reason for becoming a lawyer was to impress Chuck, who is not supportive. Jimmy convinces Kim to help him con an obnoxious businessman, Ken, into paying their expensive tequila bar tab by posing as a pair of inexperienced investors. Thrilled by the experience, Kim keeps the elaborate stopper from the tequila bottle as a souvenir, and spends the night with Jimmy, but it becomes clear that she does not want to participate in this behavior all the time. Jimmy takes the job with Davis & Main, and finds that benefits include an expensive company car as well as the cocobolo desk he always wanted. Jimmy notices a wall switch in his new office which has a note posted on it indicating that the switch should never be turned off. He turns it off, and waits a moment to see what happens. When nothing does, he turns it back on.
    • Mike refuses another job with Daniel Wormald ("Pryce"), who has spent some of his drug money on a flashy and expensive new Hummer that Mike believes will draw too much attention. Pryce believes he no longer needs Mike as a bodyguard and fires him, ignoring Mike's warnings that it is not wise to deal with Nacho alone. Nacho takes advantage of Mike's absence and obtains Pryce's address and real name from the papers in the Hummer's glove compartment. Pryce's house is ransacked and he calls the police, upset that his valuable baseball card collection has been stolen. The responding officers are suspicious about the nature of the burglary, as certain valuable items such as Pryce's computer and TV were left untouched. They are also suspicious of Pryce's Hummer. When they search inside his house, the officers find a hidden compartment in the wall behind Pryce's couch, apparently located and emptied by the burglar.
  • July 26-27, 2002: Cobbler
    • As Chuck plays French composer Gabriel Fauré's Sicilienne on the piano at his home, Howard arrives to deliver groceries. They discuss the Sandpiper case as well as Jimmy's employment at Davis & Main. Chuck is apprehensive about Jimmy joining D&M, and Howard says it was mostly through Kim's efforts that D&M hired him. After Howard leaves, Chuck returns to his piano, turns on the metronome, and stares at it silently.
    • Before a meeting between Hamlin Hamlin & McGill and D&M, Kim rearranges the seating so that she and Jimmy sit side by side. On a break, they share a cigarette and a kiss, and she gives him a travel mug that originally read "World's Best Lawyer" but which she has altered to read "World's 2nd Best Lawyer". They agree to meet later that night. At the nail salon Jimmy receives his new company car, a Mercedes-Benz, and is frustrated that his new mug does not fit in the cup holder like it did in his old car.
    • At the courthouse, Mike is surprised to see Daniel Wormald ("Pryce") arrive in his Hummer. As Daniel tells Mike about the burglary at his house, Mike cautions him about talking to the police. Daniel is adamant about getting his baseball cards back and disregards Mike's advice. In order to prevent Daniel from implicating him in Daniel's drug deals, Mike offers to find the cards. He tracks down Nacho at his father's upholstery shop and asks for the cards. Nacho brushes him off, so Mike threatens to inform Tuco about Nacho's secret drug deals. Nacho agrees to bargain, and they make a deal for Daniel to trade his Hummer to Nacho in return for the baseball cards and $10,000.
    • Chuck sits in during a meeting between HHM and D&M. Jimmy is hesitant to continue but with silent encouragement from Kim he discusses the Sandpiper clients. Mike phones Jimmy and asks him to represent Daniel, whom the police want to interview. Daniel tells the detectives that he has retrieved his baseball cards so there's no need for further investigation, but the detectives are skeptical. Jimmy talks to them privately and fabricates a story about a failed gay love affair and the stealing of the baseball cards as revenge. To provide an explanation for Daniel's hiding place, Jimmy claims it contained videos of Daniel sitting on various types of pies and crying, a fictitious fetish supposedly called "Hoboken squat cobbler" which he describes in great detail. The detectives eventually believe him and let Daniel go.
    • That night, Jimmy tells Kim about Daniel's case, including fabricating a video to "prove" the reason Daniel had a hiding place behind his couch. Kim is appalled that Jimmy has resorted to such an underhanded and unlawful scheme, which could jeopardize his career. Jimmy counters by asking why she was willing to play along with conning Ken. She retorts that it had nothing to do with work. She asks him why he was willing to falsify evidence to exonerate a client, and when Jimmy cannot provide a satisfactory answer Kim says, "I can't hear about this sort of thing ever again" to which Jimmy responds, "You won't".
  • August 11, 2002: Skyler’s 32nd birthday
  • August 15-17, 2002: Amarillo
    • In Amarillo, Texas, Jimmy bribes a Sandpiper bus driver to have his bus "break down," allowing him to sign up new residents as plaintiffs for the lawsuit while ostensibly complying with bar association rules against soliciting clients.
    • On returning to Albuquerque, Jimmy presents his client outreach report at a joint Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill-Davis & Main strategy conference, proudly announcing he's obtained twenty-four more clients. Chuck expresses suspicion about the legality of Jimmy's methods, pointing out only one response to the law firms' mailed notices to prospective clients, and wondering if Jimmy has engaged in illegal solicitation. Jimmy explains that retirement homes are tight knit communities and information spreads fast by word of mouth, which satisfies everyone but Kim. Kim is wary and warns Jimmy to keep his methods legitimate, since she recommended him to D&M and his actions will reflect on her reputation.
    • Jimmy tries to use the standard mailing of legal notices to prospective Sandpiper clients, but with little success, due to the elderly recipients either ignoring the letters or Sandpiper intercepting their mail. Jimmy suggests filming a targeted television ad, since the Sandpiper residents set aside one hour of free time to watch television. Cliff Main is intrigued by Jimmy's idea and promises to talk to him more about it when he returns from a week-long business trip. Jimmy views Davis & Main's previous television ad (for a mesothelioma class action lawsuit), but finds it dull and lacking "showmanship." Jimmy independently films his own TV commercial, hiring the camera crew he previously used for the billboard stunt. He contacts the sales department of KKTV in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a market that showed zero responses from the Sandpiper legal notice mailings, and arranged for the commercial to be run in that market as an "experiment". The ad depicts one of his elderly clients as a poor old woman being victimized by Sandpiper Crossing and the ad closes by urging residents to call D&M. Kim is impressed with Jimmy's work, and Jimmy decides to run the ad without the firm's approval. It is a massive success, with D&M gaining over a hundred clients in a single day. However, Cliff is furious that Jimmy released the ad without consulting him or the partners first and demands an explanation from him. Jimmy then lies to Kim about the setback.
    • Stacey voices concerns to Mike about gunshots she has heard in her neighborhood over the past two nights, and says the police have done nothing about them. Mike does overnight surveillance without Stacey's knowledge and finds that the "gunshots" were apparently the sound of newspaper deliveries hitting the sidewalk. Stacey calls Mike the following morning, and says there were three more gunshots the night before. Mike visits Stacey's house and she points out a chip in an outside wall that she insists is from a bullet. Despite knowing that there were no gunshots, Mike tells Stacey what she wants to hear – that he will help her get out of the neighborhood.
    • Dr. Caldera offers Mike a lucrative job as an enforcer for a loan shark, which pays better than bodyguard jobs. Mike declines, as he is not interested in performing any more illegal work, especially work that requires him to hurt or kill others. Caldera points out that if Mike wants "next level pay", he must be willing to do "next level work." Mike later receives a call from Caldera, who tells him about a job offer with a client who specifically requested Mike. Mike meets the client, who is revealed to be Nacho, and they discuss what seems like a "hit" on some "guy".
  • August 18-23, 2002: Gloves Off
    • Despite Jimmy's assertion that his commercial to recruit clients for the Sandpiper Crossing lawsuit was a success, the partners at Davis & Main lambaste him for airing it without their consent. Even though the majority of the partners want to fire Jimmy for cause, Cliff decides to give him a second chance with the understanding that he'll be under a great deal more scrutiny going forward.
    • Jimmy leaves Kim an urgent voicemail requesting that she call him before speaking to Howard. Jimmy's too late, because Kim is already being grilled by Howard and Chuck at the HHM offices over her failure to warn them about Jimmy's ad. Not wanting to get Jimmy into even more trouble, she takes responsibility for not letting them know in advance that the commercial would air, explaining that she didn't think it was necessary. A furious Howard reprimands her, and she promises it won't happen again.
    • Later on Jimmy drives to Chuck's house and starts to enter, but realizes he forgot to remove his electronics, so he grudgingly turns back to Chuck's mailbox and empties his pockets. When Chuck doesn't answer, Jimmy uses his key to enter. He finds Chuck shivering on the couch, still dressed to leave for work but covered by a space blanket. Chuck refuses to go to the hospital, so Jimmy wraps him in a second space blanket, then sits to wait with him. The next morning, Jimmy condemns Chuck for allowing Howard to reprimand Kim, saying he believes Chuck could have come to Kim's defense but did not to because he doesn't want Jimmy to be a lawyer. Chuck refuses to intercede for Kim, telling Jimmy that he is "a chimp with a machine gun" because he causes harm to everyone around him, but cannot admit his own mistakes or wrongdoing. Jimmy offers to quit practicing law if Chuck will help Kim, but Chuck tells Jimmy he already made enough mistakes to get himself fired. Finding that Chuck cannot be persuaded, Jimmy storms out.
    • Nacho and Mike monitor a small Mexican restaurant. Nacho tells Mike he and Tuco meet at this location regularly to settle accounts with their dealers and it would be easy to kill Tuco as he enters or exits. Mike refuses to kill Tuco, asserting that it would attract retaliation by the Salamancas and the cartel. Instead, Mike plans to remove Tuco from an active role in the Salamanca drug business, which will satisfy Nacho's needs. Mike calls the police, fakes a minor accident in the restaurant parking lot which involves his car and Tuco's, and then goads Tuco into striking him repeatedly just as police arrive. Because Tuco was carrying a gun when he beat Mike, he is arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. Tuco is taken away in handcuffs and Nacho later pays Mike, but Mike declines to give a reason for going to such trouble to avoid killing Tuco.
    • Mike returns home to rest. He tosses a stack of hundred-dollar bills onto his kitchen table, pulls a bag of frozen vegetables out of his freezer and presses it to his face. He sinks into a chair, his eye swollen shut and his face gruesomely beaten.
  • August 24-27, 2002: Rebecca
    • Jimmy meets Kim in the HHM document review room, where she is relegated to entry-level work, and proposes that she sue HHM for discrimination and creating a hostile work environment. Kim rejects this idea, suggesting it would be career suicide because no one would ever hire her again. She tells Jimmy to worry about his own job while she worries about hers. Throughout his day, Jimmy is accompanied by junior associate Erin (Jessie Ennis), who claims to want to help Jimmy fit in better at D&M, though Jimmy realizes Cliff directed her to "babysit" him in the wake of the controversy over his TV ad.
    • Kim decides that bringing a major new client to HHM is her best course of action for escaping document review, so she spends her free time calling law school, law firm, and business contacts. Kim capitalizes on one of these relationships to land Mesa Verde Bank as a client, meaning the potential of millions of dollars in revenue for HHM. Howard is happy to have the new client, but gives Kim no credit, and keeps her working in document review.
    • Chuck promises to work on Kim's transfer out of document review, and tells her a story about when Jimmy and Chuck's late father ran a store in Cicero, Illinois. According to Chuck, Jimmy embezzled money, which eventually led to the store's failure. As a result, Chuck is always skeptical of Jimmy's schemes and plans.
    • Mike is approached by Hector Salamanca, the leader of the Salamanca drug cartel and Tuco's uncle. Hector has no issue with Tuco spending time in prison as a learning experience, but objects to the length of the sentence he will receive for assault with a deadly weapon. He offers Mike $5,000 to tell police the gun at the scene of the fight between Tuco and Mike was Mike's, which will result in a reduction to Tuco's sentence.
  • August 27-30, 2002: Bali Hai
    • Jimmy finds it difficult adjusting to his new job at D&M, and is unable to sleep in his apartment, so he returns to his old boiler room office, where he has no trouble falling asleep. The next morning, Jimmy leaves Kim a voicemail in which he happily sings "Bali Ha'i" from South Pacific. With Chuck's help, Kim is transferred out of HHM's document review room, but is treated coldly by Howard, who gives her humiliating and menial assignments, including arguing unwinnable motions in court.
    • Kim is approached by Rich Schweikart of Schweikart & Cokely, who tells her that he was impressed with her performance while arguing a motion she was sure to lose. He offers her a position at S&C that will include better pay and benefits, and the promise of meaningful work. Unsure of what to do, Kim relieves her stress by running another con with Jimmy. They fool an investor into giving them $10,000, though the next morning Kim tells Jimmy they will not cash the check, but keep it as a "souvenir". She confides her doubts about whether to move to S&C, and expresses jealousy that Jimmy always seems to know what he wants. Though he's increasingly frustrated at D&M, Jimmy lies to Kim about how working at D&M is everything he's always wanted.
    • Mike refuses Hector's offer of $5,000 to say the gun found when Tuco assaulted him is Mike's, so Hector has his henchmen, including Leonel and Marco (the Cousins), wage a harassment campaign. Stacey and Kaylee receive implied and explicit threats, so Mike agrees to take responsibility for the gun, but only if he's paid $50,000. Hector agrees, and Mike later gives $25,000 to Nacho to reimburse him for the money Nacho paid Mike to get Tuco arrested. Mike argues that he owes Nacho, since Tuco's reduced sentence means Mike didn't live up to the terms of their agreement.
  • August 30 - September 7, 2002: Inflatable
    • Jimmy represents Mike when Mike tells the prosecutor that the gun found after the fight between Mike and Tuco was not Tuco's. Jimmy decides to quit D&M, but learns that if he quits, he will have to repay the signing bonus he received when he joined. Jimmy finds a loophole in his contract which permits him to keep the money if he is fired without cause. While waiting at a stop light, he sees an inflatable tube man outside an oil changing shop. Inspired by the colorful display, he executes a plan to get fired by doing everything he can think of to be irritating at work, from dressing in flashy suits to playing bagpipes in his office to not flushing the toilet after trips to the bathroom. Cliff finally fires Jimmy and tells him losing the signing bonus is worth it just to be rid of him.
    • Jimmy approaches Kim and attempts to convince her to partner with him in their own law firm. Kim agrees, but only on the condition that Jimmy play it "straight and narrow". Jimmy admits that he can only be himself, which means pushing the envelope on what's legal and ethical, so Kim politely refuses. Jimmy then moves back to his old office at the nail salon.
    • Mike promises to buy Stacey a new house in a better, safer neighborhood and begins scouting Hector's restaurant. Kim proposes a compromise to Jimmy, suggesting they start separate solo firms, but share office space to save on expenses and support each other if needed. Jimmy considers her offer, and doesn't immediately respond.
  • September 7, 2002: Walt’s 44th birthday
  • September 8-13, 2002: Fifi
    • Jimmy accepts Kim's offer to set up separate firms but share office space, and Kim announces to Howard her resignation from HHM. Howard accepts Kim's resignation, wishes her well and they both shake hands. Immediately after Kim exits Howard's office, Howard and she race to secure the Mesa Verde account. Kim meets with Kevin and Paige, Mesa Verde's president and chief legal counsel, and they agree to become a client of her solo practice. Kim and Jimmy set up their practices in a re-purposed dentists' office. Howard reports Kim's resignation and the loss of Mesa Verde to Chuck. Chuck braves his electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms to meet with Kevin and Paige at HHM and damns Kim with faint praise, which causes Kevin to back out of his agreement with Kim and continue as an HHM client. Chuck is unable to continue suppressing his EHS symptoms, and collapses as soon as the meeting is over.
    • Jimmy pretends Fudge, an elderly man who is a registered sex offender, is a World War II veteran so his camera crew and he can gain access to a U.S. Air Force base. Once inside the gates, they use FIFI, a World War II-era Boeing B-29 Superfortress, as the backdrop for a TV ad to attract new elder care clients to Jimmy's practice. Upset at losing Mesa Verde as a client, Kim has doubts about her future with Jimmy, but he reassures her that there will be other opportunities to win over big clients.
    • Jimmy hears that Chuck's condition has worsened because of his time at HHM's offices, and visits Chuck at home. While Chuck is asleep, Jimmy accesses the Mesa Verde files and falsifies address information on the application documents for a soon-to-open branch. Mike continues to watch Hector's restaurant and tracks his movements to a remote garage. After returning home, he begins to assemble a homemade spike strip.

Before Gus can explain, Hector shoots Max through the head and forces Gus to lie down and look his dead partner in the eyes.

Mike admitted to Matt that he participated in the corruption, leaving Matt upset that the father he looked up to is a criminal. Matt ultimately accepted the money, but didn't spend any, yet Hoffman and Fenske murdered him anyway because his hesitation before accepting made them fear he'd turn them in later.
  • September 7: Walt’s 43rd birthday
  • September 24: Jesse’s 17th birthday
  • November 12: Jimmy's 41st birthday
2002

  • March, 2002:
    • Approximate: In Philadelphia, Mike breaks into a police car parked outside a bar. He enters the bar, and after a few drinks, confronts Fenske and Hoffman, telling them "I know it was you". A few hours later, Mike is the last customer at closing time, and announces to the bartender that he plans to move to Albuquerque. As he staggers home, Fenske and Hoffman drive up in their patrol car, offer him a ride, and help him into the back seat. They take Mike's handgun and ask him what he meant when he talked to them earlier. Apparently still drunk, Mike tells them he knows they killed Matt. They drive to an abandoned factory. Fenske and Hoffman plan to kill Mike and make it look like suicide, but Mike reveals that he's not really drunk. Fenske attempts to shoot him, but the gun Fenske took from Mike is empty. Mike shoots Fenske three times using the pistol he hid in the backseat earlier and retrieved while pretending to be drunk. Hoffman tries to draw his pistol, but Mike's shot hits him in the head. Fenske then draws his service pistol and fires twice, with one round hitting Mike in the left shoulder. Mike returns fire and hits Fenske in the neck. Fenske tries to crawl away, but Mike steps on his leg to flip Fenske over. Fenske raises a hand as if to beg for his life, but Mike kills him with a shot to the head. Mike picks up his unloaded handgun and walks off, preparing to depart for Albuquerque.
    • Mike arrives by train at Albuquerque's Alvarado Transportation Center. After re-bandaging a fresh bullet wound in his shoulder, he meets his daughter-in-law, Stacey, and her daughter, Kaylee. Stacey and Mike briefly discuss the death of Matt, Mike's son and Stacey's husband. Stacey questions whether Matt might have been involved in something illegal, based on his behavior during their final encounter, but Mike brushes off her concerns. After the meeting, he questions a cabdriver as to "how well" he knows the neighborhood, and is later seen having his shoulder wound treated by a local veterinarian, Dr. Caldera, who inquires as to whether Mike might be interested in any "work", which Mike declines.
  • May 13-25, 2002: Uno
    • Jimmy McGill is a struggling public defender in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He's representing three teenagers and tries to convince a jury that their actions were merely "boys being boys". But the prosecutor plays a video the teenagers made of them breaking into a morgue and having sex with a severed head. Afterwards, Jimmy complains about being paid too little for the defense. He gets a call from a prospective client, to whom he pretends to be his own mild-mannered Irish secretary. On his way out of the parking lot, Jimmy is stopped by Mike Ehrmantraut, the parking lot attendant, who refuses to let him exit without either a payment or a court-supplied parking sticker.
    • Later that day, Jimmy meets at a diner with the prospective clients, county treasurer Craig Kettleman and his wife, Betsy, who are being investigated for the disappearance of county funds. The Kettlemans are hesitant to hire Jimmy. Later, Jimmy is ordering flowers for the Kettlemans when he hits a man on a skateboard. The skateboarder's twin brother records the incident on a video camera and threatens to call the police unless Jimmy pays them hush money. Recognizing their ruse, Jimmy refuses to pay and kicks the "victim". Jimmy returns to his "office" – the boiler room of a Vietnamese beauty salon. Opening his mail, Jimmy finds a check for $26,000 from Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill (HHM), his brother Chuck's law firm, which he proceeds to tear into several pieces. Jimmy confronts the partners, accusing them of trying to cheat Chuck out of his rightful share of the partnership. On his way out of the HHM office, he sees the Kettlemans going in, which causes him to become agitated over losing a potentially lucrative client.
    • Jimmy visits Chuck, who has had a mental breakdown and believes he has electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Chuck requires visitors to leave their remote car door-opening keys and cellular phones in his mailbox and ground themselves before entering his house. He has no working lights or refrigerator and works from home by lantern on a manual typewriter. Chuck refuses a buyout and also suggests that Jimmy stop using the name "McGill" for his personal firm to avoid public confusion with HHM. Jimmy tracks down the two skateboarders, Cal and Lars Lindholm, and suggests a partnership, telling them how he got the nickname "Slippin' Jimmy" as a young man by faking "slip and falls" to get easy money. He arranges for one to be hit by a car driven by Betsy Kettleman, which will enable him to make another pitch to defend the Kettlemans on the embezzlement charge. Instead of stopping to check Cal's status after hitting him, the motorist just drives off. Cal and Lars give chase, but when the car stops, an elderly Hispanic woman exits. They try to get her to pay and follow her into her house. Jimmy arrives moments later to try and save them, trying to get in by referring to himself accurately but misleadingly as an "officer of the court", but is pulled into the house at gunpoint by Tuco Salamanca.
  • May 25 - June 15, 2002: Mijo
    • Tuco is preparing salsa in the kitchen when his grandmother returns after the run-in with Cal and Lars. Though they accidentally targeted the wrong driver, Cal and Lars follow her home and falsely claim serious injuries from their staged hit-and-run accident. They demand money from Tuco's grandmother and follow her into her house. Tuco sends his grandmother upstairs to her bedroom and then uses her cane to beat Cal and Lars unconscious. He arranges for Ignacio "Nacho" Varga, No-Doze and Gonzo to come with a van to pick up Cal and Lars. Jimmy arrives searching for Cal and Lars, and Tuco answers the front door and drags him inside at gunpoint.
    • Tuco questions Jimmy, who insists that Cal and Lars did not intentionally target Tuco's grandmother. Tuco allows Jimmy to see Cal and Lars, who are tied up in the basement, but when Jimmy removes the gag from one of them, he immediately implicates Jimmy in the phony hit and run scam. Tuco and his men take Jimmy, Cal and Lars to the desert and continue questioning Jimmy. Thinking quickly, Jimmy tells Tuco he's a lawyer, but when Tuco doesn't believe him and threatens to cut off a finger, Jimmy falsely claims he's an FBI agent. Nacho is suspicious and threatens Jimmy again, so Jimmy goes back to admitting the truth—he is a lawyer who intended to scam the Kettlemans. Nacho convinces Tuco this is the truth and that killing a lawyer would attract unwanted attention. Tuco frees Jimmy, but moves to kill Cal and Lars. Jimmy convinces Tuco to spare their lives and talks him into only breaking one leg each as punishment.
    • After bringing Cal and Lars to a hospital, Jimmy meets a woman for a date at a bar. A customer's snapping breadsticks reminds Jimmy of the broken legs Cal and Lars suffered, so he excuses himself and vomits in the bathroom. An intoxicated Jimmy later arrives at Chuck's house and forgets to leave his cellular phone in the mailbox before collapsing on the couch. Due to Chuck's electromagnetic hypersensitivity, he throws Jimmy's cell phone into the yard. The following morning, Chuck admits to seeing the brothers' hospital bill. Jimmy reassures Chuck that he is not going back to the "Slippin' Jimmy" cons he used to run.
    • After several days in court, Jimmy returns to his office and sees that he has no messages. One of the beauty salon employees tells him a client has arrived—Nacho. Nacho tells Jimmy he wants to take the $1.6 million stolen by the Kettlemans, for which he will pay Jimmy a finder's fee. Jimmy insists he is a lawyer, not a criminal. Nacho writes his number on one of Jimmy's matchbooks and tells Jimmy to let him know when Jimmy figures out he is "in the game."
  • June, 2002: Jesse graduates from J. P. Wynne High School.
  • June 15-16, 2002: Nacho
    • Jimmy is anxious about Nacho's plot to extort the Kettlemans. He calls Kim Wexler, an acquaintance at HHM, which represents the Kettlemans. Jimmy indirectly warns Kim about the potential danger to the Kettlemans, but then breaks off the call, insisting that he is "no hero." Later that night, Jimmy calls the Kettlemans anonymously and warns them. The Kettlemans look outside and see somebody in a parked van watching them.
    • The next morning, Kim tells Jimmy that something has happened to the Kettlemans. He rushes to their house to find it surrounded by police, and finds out the Kettlemans, including their two children, are missing. Believing that Nacho has kidnapped them, Jimmy tries to call Nacho, but receives only his voicemail greeting. While waiting for Nacho to call back, Jimmy is picked up by the police, who tell him they have arrested Nacho on suspicion of kidnapping the Kettlemans, and he has requested Jimmy as his legal counsel.
    • At the police station, Nacho admits to Jimmy that he performed surveillance on the Kettlemans but denies kidnapping them. Nacho warns Jimmy that if he does not get the charges dropped, Nacho will have him killed. Jimmy is unsuccessful at persuading the police to release Nacho, but convinces Kim to take him to the Kettleman house so he can investigate. Jimmy notices some inconsistencies, such as a missing child's doll, and theorizes that the Kettlemans staged their kidnapping. Jimmy admits to Kim that he warned the Kettlemans about Nacho and probably drove them into hiding.
    • At the courthouse, Jimmy starts a fight with Mike, who subdues him. The police ask Mike to press assault charges against Jimmy so that they can leverage him to testify against Nacho. Mike takes Jimmy's side and refuses to press charges. He suggests that Jimmy's theory about the Kettlemans' disappearance is correct. He recounts a similar case he investigated as a Philadelphia police officer, and tells Jimmy that the Kettlemans are probably hiding somewhere close to home. With the new lead, Jimmy explores the desert near the Kettleman house and finds their campsite. He confronts the Kettlemans, gets into a struggle with them, and inadvertently discovers the stolen money.
  • June 16-20, 2002: Hero
    • Jimmy gives the Kettlemans the option of hiring him as their lawyer, but they refuse. The Kettlemans instead offer Jimmy a bribe if he does not reveal that they stole the $1.6 million, and he accepts. Nacho is released from police custody and accuses Jimmy of warning the Kettlemans, for which Nacho says Jimmy will face "consequences". Jimmy says he warned the family only for the sake of the children, and that Nacho should be grateful that the warning prevented Nacho from committing kidnapping or murder, for which he probably would have been charged, since he was noticed while conducting surveillance on the Kettleman home.
    • In his office at the nail salon, Jimmy cooks his books to make it look like the bribe he took from the Kettlemans is legitimate payment for his services. He spends the money on a personal makeover and a billboard advertisement which shares obvious similarities with Hamlin Hamlin & McGill. Kim confronts Jimmy over the imitation, and Howard Hamlin sues him for trademark infringement. The court rules in HHM's favor, and Jimmy is ordered to remove the billboard within 48 hours.
    • After failing to persuade any news outlets to cover his predicament as a human interest story, Jimmy hires a freelance media team to record his video plea for sympathy. During filming, the worker removing the billboard slips and falls, and is held up only by his safety harness. Jimmy climbs up and pulls the worker to safety while passersby watch and record, as does his media team. It is revealed that the accident was staged by Jimmy as a publicity stunt, which Howard and Kim see through when they watch it on the television news. The stunt works, and Jimmy acquires numerous new clients.
    • Jimmy visits Chuck and brings him his newspapers, but hides the local one that includes a report on the "rescue". Chuck congratulates Jimmy on his newfound success, but becomes suspicious when he notices his local paper is missing. Jimmy dismisses it as meaningless, but after he leaves, a suspicious Chuck braves exposure to electricity to run to his neighbor's driveway and steal their newspaper (leaving a $5 bill as payment), which leads to his discovery of Jimmy's scam.

2003, continued
  • March 7-18, 2003: Fall
    • Jimmy discovers from Irene, one of his former elder law clients who represents the class in the Sandpiper Crossing lawsuit, that the company has offered a settlement which if accepted by D&M and HHM will result in a payment to Jimmy of $1.16 million. Irene has refused to accept the settlement because the D&M and HHM lawyers have advised her they believe they can get Sandpiper Crossing to offer more. Jimmy tries to persuade Howard to accept the settlement, but Howard refuses.
    • Howard and Chuck meet with their malpractice insurance agents, who inform them that the insurance carrier will need to raise HHM's premium substantially or arrange to have Chuck supervised by another attorney at all times. Chuck refuses and instead decides to fight the insurance company in court. Howard disagrees with Chuck's plan, and says Chuck will be forced to retire since his judgment can no longer be trusted. Chuck sues HHM for $8 million, the value of his share of the partnership.
    • Mike becomes a contracted "security consultant" to Madrigal, a paper transaction designed to launder his stolen money by having him give his cash to Lydia, and then receive monthly checks from Madrigal as supposed fees for his expert advice. Kim takes on Gatwood Oil as a second client in order to have an income sufficient to cover office expenses in case Jimmy can't pay his half while his law license is suspended. Nacho admits to his father that he is working for Hector, and begs him to follow Hector's orders. Nacho's father refuses and orders Nacho to leave his house.
    • Jimmy pulls a series of psychological and social manipulation tricks to turn Irene's friends against her, so that she believes refusing the Sandpiper settlement is against the interests of her fellow clients. She decides to accept it, meaning Jimmy will receive his much needed share. He returns to his office to give Kim the good news, but she is too busy preparing for an important meeting with Gatwood Oil and leaves in a rush. Due to fatigue from overwork, Kim falls asleep at the wheel and drives her car off the side of the road, crashing into a boulder.
  • March 18-22, 2003: Lantern
    • Jimmy visits Kim in the hospital, where her broken arm has been put in a cast. After she is discharged, the two return to the site of her car crash and Jimmy picks up her scattered Gatwood Oil papers. The following morning, Jimmy feels partly responsible for her accident because she took on a second client to keep their office open during the suspension of his law license. Kim replies that she alone is responsible, and expresses guilt at the possibility that she could have killed someone by falling asleep at the wheel.
    • Chuck promises to abandon his breach of contract lawsuit against HHM if he's allowed to keep his position with the firm. Instead, Howard presents Chuck a check for $3 million—the first of three installment payments. Chuck believed HHM couldn't afford to pay him $8 million, so he'd be able to stay with the firm, but Howard used loans and personal savings to raise enough for the first payment. Howard criticizes Chuck for putting his personal vendetta against Jimmy ahead of the firm's needs, but then praises Chuck profusely as he informs HHM's staff of Chuck's immediate retirement.
    • Hector attempts to bribe Nacho's father Manuel to allow him to use Manuel's upholstery shop as a front for Hector's drug business. Manuel demands that Hector leave, but Nacho reminds him that saying no to Hector could place their family at risk, so Manuel reluctantly takes the money. Francesca presents Kim with get-well gifts from her clients and Kim tells Francesca to cancel her meeting with Gatwood Oil and postpone her other appointments. They rent movies at a Blockbuster store, which Kim watches with Jimmy while staying home from work.
    • Jimmy tries to make amends with Chuck but Chuck tells Jimmy it's in his nature to hurt everybody around him and that he was never all that important to Chuck anyway. Chuck later relapses and his electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms cause him shut off the power to his house and stack all his appliances outside, then destroy the walls of his house and remove old wiring in an attempt to find out what's making his electricity meter continue to run. Unable to find the source, he finally destroys the meter itself.
    • Jimmy checks on Irene, expecting her friends to have forgiven her after she agreed to accept the Sandpiper settlement. To his shock, Irene's friends still don't trust her, because now they think she'll do anything to get on their good side. His attempts to take the blame himself make Irene's friends respect him more and her less. He finally stages an argument with Erin Brill, his former D&M colleague, in which he "accidentally" admits to the tricks he played to get Irene to accept, which vindicates Irene to her friends and causes Irene to withdraw her acceptance.
    • Nacho plans to ambush Hector in order to protect his father. Before he can act, he's pulled into a meeting between Hector, Gus, and Juan Bolsa. Bolsa says that because Salamanca family trucks have been attacked, their routes for smuggling drugs from Mexico to the U.S. are not safe, so from now on Gus's organization will handle the cross-border smuggling for both Gus's operation and Hector's. An enraged Hector suffers a stroke and collapses. As Mike advised, while Hector's bodyguards are calling for an ambulance and Gus is rendering first aid, Nacho takes the fake nitroglycerin capsules and replaces them with the real ones. Gus seems suspicious, but says nothing.
    • The next day, Jimmy and Kim move out of their office space. They apologize to Francesca for laying her off, but she says she will be able to return to her job at the Motor Vehicle Division. Kim insists that Jimmy keep his contact list, despite the fact that his admission to tricking Irene has guaranteed the end of his elder care law practice. That night, Chuck lies on a couch in his wrecked house and intentionally kicks a table several times. His kicks cause a gas lantern to fall and start a fire, but he makes no attempt to leave.
  • March 23-31, 2003: Smoke
    • Howard calls Jimmy and Kim about the fire at Chuck's, and they arrive as Chuck's body is taken away. Jimmy sees the appliances outside Chuck's home and realizes his electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms returned. He falls into a deep depression which Kim tries to help him out of. Howard takes on the responsibility of arranging Chuck's funeral.
    • Mike receives his first payment from Madrigal Electromotive as a contracted security consultant, which Gus arranged to launder the money Mike stole from the Salamancas. Though meant to be a paper transaction, Mike enters a Madrigal facility, performs a detailed security audit, and turns the results over to the facility manager with instructions to let Lydia know he was there.
    • An ambulance comes to take Hector to the hospital after he suffers a stroke at a meeting with Juan Bolsa, Gus and Nacho. Following Mike's advice, Nacho takes the fake capsules containing ibuprofen from Hector and replaces them with Hector's real nitroglycerin. He tries to dispose of the fakes but is interrupted by Gus, who says they need to meet with Juan Bolsa immediately. Bolsa puts Nacho and Arturo in charge of the Salamanca operation for the time being. Afterwards, Nacho drives to a bridge and throws the ibuprofen away, unaware Victor has followed him.
    • Several of Chuck's friends and associates attend his funeral and give Jimmy their condolences. After the service, Howard tells Jimmy and Kim he believes Chuck relapsed because Howard forced him out of HHM, so he feels responsible for Chuck's death. Kim is shocked as Jimmy lets Howard shoulder the blame and immediately regains his happy-go-lucky demeanor.
  • April 7, 2003: Breathe
    • Jimmy begins to look for a job as part of his suspension from legal practice. At Neff Copiers, he interviews for a sales position but they reject him given his legal background. As Jimmy leaves, he turns around and gives them the "hard sell" on needing the job immediately. The owners fall for the con, and Jimmy is upset for how easily they fell for it, and refuses to accept it. As he departs, he notices a collection of Hummel figurines among their awards.
    • Lydia meets with Mike to discuss his recent security audit, reminding him his job was only meant to be on paper as a front to launder the stolen money. Mike tells Lydia if she has any complaints to talk to Gus, and when she does, Gus tacitly approves of Mike's continued actions.
    • Howard meets with Kim and Rebecca to discuss Chuck's estate. This includes a sealed letter and US$5,000 for Jimmy, just enough to prevent him from challenging the will. After Rebecca leaves, Kim furiously accuses Howard of treating Jimmy poorly since his days in the mail room. That evening, Kim gives Jimmy the check, but decides to hold back on the letter. Jimmy checks on the value of the Hummel figurines at Neff Copiers and then calls Mike.
    • Gus learns that Hector is comatose, and arranges for Dr. Bruckner, a skilled physician from Johns Hopkins to oversee his treatment; additionally, Dr. Bruckner speaks fluent Spanish and is able to explain Hector's health and course of recovery to the Cousins who have arrived to watch over Hector. Tyrus brings Gus a copy of Hector's medical file, revealing there was no nitroglycerin in his system despite being part of his heart medication.
    • Nacho and Arturo arrive at the Los Pollos Hermanos chicken farm to take their share of the next drug shipment. Arturo strongarms Gus's men for an extra kilo as he had seen Nacho do in an earlier deal. As they leave, Gus suddenly leaps on Arturo and suffocates him in a plastic bag. Gus then tells Nacho he knows he switched Hector's medication, but has yet to tell the Salmancas. Gus warns Nacho, "From now on, you are mine."
  • April 8-9, 2003: Something Beautiful
    • Nacho aids Victor and Tyrus to make it appear that his car was attacked and the drugs picked up at Los Pollos Hermanos stolen, including riddling the car and Arturo's body with bullets and shooting Nacho twice. Nacho calls the Cousins, who burn the car and take Nacho to veterinarian Dr. Caldera, who succeeds in saving Nacho's life.
    • Juan Bolsa tells Gus that because drug and cash shipments have been disrupted several times, Gus should begin investigating the feasibility of making meth within the United States rather than relying on cocaine from Mexico, unaware this is what Gus intended. Gus visits Gale Boetticher, a post-graduate student and researcher at the University of New Mexico, who reports on the poor quality of a meth sample Gus asked him to evaluate. Gale says he could produce a higher quality product, but Gus assures him he is destined for better things.
    • Jimmy asks Mike to steal a valuable Hummel figurine from Neff Copiers and replace it with an inexpensive one that looks similar. Mike refuses, so Jimmy turns to Ira for help. Ira agrees, but during the theft, he finds one of the owners is sleeping in the office. He calls Jimmy for help and Jimmy creates a distraction that enables Ira to leave with the Hummel.
    • With her arm healed, Kim returns to work on the Mesa Verde account. Bank president Kevin Watchell welcomes her back and shows her plans for their aggressive expansion. Concerned about the rate of growth, and increasingly bored with banking law, Kim gives the work to her paralegal Viola, and asks to be dropped off at the courthouse.
    • That evening, Kim decides to give Jimmy the letter from Chuck that was part of Chuck's will. Jimmy reads the undated letter aloud, which appears to have been written while he worked in HHM's mailroom. It seems on the surface to be full of praise, but is slightly condescending and contains backhanded compliments. Jimmy calls it "nice", but Kim begins crying and runs off to their bedroom.
  • April 10-12, 2003: Talk
    • Mike is revealed to be discussing his son at a group therapy session with Stacey, and ends his time by saying "You wanted me to talk. I talked."
    • Jimmy is offered a position as a shift manager at a cellular phone store. He initially declines, but when Kim suggests he see a therapist instead, he accepts the position. The store sees little traffic, and Jimmy soon becomes bored. Ira meets with Jimmy to hand over his share of the stolen Hummel figurine and offers to steal others in the future.
    • Kim avoids Mesa Verde work by spending the day in Judge Munsinger's courtroom. He calls her to his office during a recess, warning her that if he sees her again in his courtroom, he will assign her pro bono work. When Munsinger returns to the bench, he spots Kim again waiting in the audience.
    • As part of covering up the fake attack on Nacho and Arturo, Victor sells the Salamanca's portion of the drugs to the Espinosas's, their rivals. After Nacho tips them off, the Cousins raid the Espinosas's headquarters, killing most of the gang and recovering the drugs. After returning the drugs, they retreat back to Mexico to avoid police scrutiny. Nacho recognizes that Gus had planned for this, as Gus is now able to expand into the Espinosas's territory without resistance. Nacho convinces his reluctant father to let him stay with him while he recovers from his wounds.
    • During lunch with Anita, Mike explains that Henry, another member of their support group, has been lying about his past, falsely claiming to have a wife who died. At the next meeting Mike is put in a bad mood when Stacey says she was able to get through most of a day without thinking of Matt, so he angrily confronts Henry about his lies. Having been exposed, Henry wordlessly leaves the room. Mike then condemns Anita, Stacey and the other participants for being so self-absorbed they are unable to see through Henry's obvious falsehoods.
    • After performing another Madrigal site inspection, Mike meets with Gus, who feigns anger that Mike did not tell him Nacho intended to kill Hector, but Mike points out that he had promised only not to kill Hector himself. Mike then asks Gus bluntly for information about "the job" he wants done.
  • April 13-14, 2003: Quite a Ride
    • Jimmy sells pay-as-you-go phones to a customer who saw his "privacy sold here" sign. He then starts selling prepaid phones on the street, but the venture proves unsuccessful when he is mugged by three teenagers. Kim tends his wounds while Jimmy is concerned that he did not realize the teenagers' intent because he was not thinking clearly. He promises to call the psychiatrist Kim recommended, but instead returns to CC Mobile and spends the day removing the storefront sign.
    • Mike escorts engineers through the laundry to evaluate it as a site for Gus's planned meth "superlab". One glibly asserts he can easily do the job, but is turned away by Gus, who listens in from a nearby room. Another, Werner Ziegler, impresses Gus by forthrightly expressing his concerns about the risk. Gus offers him the job of planning and overseeing the lab's construction.
    • Kim thrives in the environment of her pro bono criminal defense work. While waiting for a client to dress before going to court, Paige calls from Mesa Verde and insists they need her help immediately to fix recently filed paperwork. Kim hangs up on Paige and sees her criminal case through, then goes to Mesa Verde. Paige informs her that the bank's legal staff had to drop everything else to fix the problem, and reminds her that when she became Mesa Verde's outside counsel, she promised that the bank would be her sole focus. Kim apologizes and promises it will not happen again.
    • Jimmy meets Howard in the courthouse restroom and sees that he is looking sleepless, but Howard does not divulge why. Jimmy offers Howard the phone number of the psychiatrist Kim recommended. Howard claims he is going to therapy, so Jimmy throws the number away. Jimmy meets with his probation officer and states his intent to resume practicing law once the one-year suspension of his law license is over.
  • April 15, 2003: Piñata
    • Late at night, Kim tries to review her Mesa Verde records for the next day's work, but her attention is drawn to her pro bono criminal defense cases. She goes to bed and finds Jimmy asleep, surrounded by notes and sketches that show he still dreams of re-starting the Wexler-McGill law office once his suspension is over. The next morning, Jimmy explains that he decided not to go to the psychologist as she suggested, and leaves for work at the cell phone store. Kim meets with Rich at Schweikart & Cokely, where she makes a successful pitch to join as a partner and run a new banking division, which will enable her to handle both Mesa Verde and criminal cases. She informs Jimmy of her acceptance over lunch, falsely telling him that Schweikart & Cokely sought her out. He leaves the table and experiences an anxiety attack, but returns to congratulate her and tell her he's supportive.
    • While at the cellular phone store, Jimmy gets a call from a relative of his first elder law client, Geraldine Strauss, and learns that she died and the relative is her executor. The executor asks questions about the will Jimmy drew up. He explains that he no longer practices law and refers the executor to HHM. Jimmy breaks down emotionally from the call, and after work, Jimmy re-watches his first elder law commercial, which starred Geraldine.
    • Gus and Mike discuss arrangements for housing Werner Ziegler and his construction crew while they build the meth "superlab" under the laundry. While Gus has already installed two modular homes within a large warehouse for basic needs, Mike recommends adding several amenities to keep the workers happy, as well as security and monitoring provisions for both entrance and exit. Gus agrees, and after learning that Hector's health has taken a turn for the worse, has Mike work with Tyrus to complete preparations. Mike apologizes to Stacey for his behavior in exposing Henry's lies at the support group meeting, and Stacey allows him to begin seeing Kaylee again. Mike meets Werner and his workers when they arrive, and explains their living arrangements. Kai, one of the workers, appears dismissive and disdainful, but Werner vouches for him and says he'll settle in once the work starts. Despite Werner's assurances, Mike tells his security team to pay special attention to Kai's activities.
    • Gus visits a still hospitalized and unconscious Hector late at night and recounts a childhood story about a coati that ate the fruit from a lúcuma tree Gus had carefully tended in Chile. He trapped the coati, which broke its leg in trying to escape. Rather than killing it, which would have been humane, Gus held it and let it suffer until it died. As Gus finishes the story, he gets up to depart, with Hector still unconscious in his bed.
    • Jimmy visits HHM to pick up his $5,000 inheritance check, and notices the firm is downsizing and Howard is still disengaged and depressed following Chuck's death. Howard explains that HHM is having trouble paying out to Chuck's estate and its reputation has been severely damaged by recent events, so clients are leaving. Before departing, Jimmy tries a "tough love" pep talk to rouse Howard back into action. Jimmy uses the money to buy pay-as-you-go phones for resale on the street, which he stores at the nail salon against Mrs. Nguyen's wishes. He preemptively seeks out the three teenagers who robbed him before and tries to convince them to either help sell his phones for a share of the profits, or take a smaller cut as protection money for leaving him alone. They attempt to rob him again instead, but he leads them on a chase that ends with the boys caught in a trap sprung by Huell and Man Mountain. They tie the boys up and hang them upside down. While Huell and Man Mountain use bats to smash through a room full of piñatas close to their heads, Jimmy obtains an agreement that the boys will leave him alone and tell everyone else on the street that he's off-limits.
  • April 16 - December 31, 2003: Something Stupid
    • Over eight months, Jimmy and Kim are shown to be drifting further apart, even as they continue to live together. Kim's arm heals and her cast is removed, leaving her less dependent on Jimmy. She thrives at Schweikart & Cokely, with the Mesa Verde expansion proceeding on schedule, and Kim finding time to continue the pro bono criminal defense work that gives her personal satisfaction. Jimmy continues his boring job at the cellular phone store, but his side business re-selling prepaid phones on the street continues to grow. Jimmy's increasing contacts with Albuquerque's criminals cause him to frequently use the "Saul Goodman" alias. The time jump ends in early 2004, with Kim and Jimmy on opposite sides of Kim's bed, still in split-screen, while Kim's side slowly goes dark.
    • Hector begins to recover, and Dr. Bruckner helps with his therapy. Dr. Bruckner shows Gus video footage of a session which indicates Hector has improved cognitively and has limited mobility in his right hand, a sign the therapy is working. Dr. Bruckner dismisses Hector knocking a glass of water over as an involuntary action, but Gus sees that Hector did it purposely so he could ogle the nurse who bent over to clean it up. Gus tells Dr. Bruckner to end further treatment, in effect trapping Hector's healed mind inside his unhealed body.
    • Werner's crew begins excavating the meth "superlab" under the industrial laundry. The work proceeds more slowly than anticipated, and when Casper accidentally knocks over a ceiling support with the skid-steer loader he's driving, Kai and Casper get into a shoving match. Mike intervenes to stop the fight and later meets the crew at their warehouse quarters, where Werner apologizes for their behavior. Mike wonders if they would be better off without Kai, but Werner suggests that his crew just needs some rest and relaxation, since they have been on the job far longer than anticipated.

  • January 1-16, 2004: Something Stupid
    • Jimmy shows Huell a prospective space for his new law offices, which he plans to finance with the profits from his cellular phone side business. Kim takes Jimmy to a reception at Schweikart & Cokely; initially charming and gracious, he increasingly feels out of place, and ducks into Kim's office. As he looks around, he realizes how successful she is, and how much better her office is than the one he showed Huell. He returns to the party and embarrasses Kim by making a fool of himself during a conversation with Rich and the other S & C lawyers.
    • Jimmy continues to re-sell phones on the street, with his business now based in the back of a van on the outskirts of town. An off-duty police officer in plain clothes arrives and displays one of Jimmy's business cards, which he took from a drug dealer who purchased one of Jimmy's phones. He suggests Jimmy target a better class of customers and Jimmy argues that he's running a legal, legitimate business. During the dispute, Huell returns from a trip to buy lunch. Because he's wearing headphones, he doesn't understand the context of the argument, and strikes the police officer with a shopping bag containing sandwiches before Jimmy can stop him. The officer knows Huell from past interactions and arrests him. Jimmy is still a month from being reinstated to the bar, and can't represent Huell, so he enlists Kim's aid. Kim reluctantly accepts, but refuses to use unethical tricks to ruin the police officer's reputation. She wants Jimmy to assure that Huell will not flee before his court appearance, but Jimmy's reply is less than convincing. Kim tries to plea bargain with Suzanne Ericsen, the prosecutor in Huell's case, but his arrest record precludes Suzanne from agreeing to a deal. On her way to meet with Huell, Kim stops to buy office supplies and then calls Jimmy to tell him to stop whatever he's doing to help Huell, because she has a better way to handle the situation.
  • January 17 - February 1, 2004: Coushatta
    • Kim enlists Schweikart & Cokely employees to aid Huell's defense and previews a plan to bury prosecutor Suzanne Ericsen in motions and paperwork when Suzanne refuses to budge on seeking the maximum 18-month sentence for Huell. Jimmy takes a bus trip to Huell's hometown, Coushatta, Louisiana. Along the way, he uses the office supplies Kim purchased to write postcards and letters of support for Huell, and enlists the other passengers to help. The mail is completed with Coushatta return addresses and Jimmy sends it from there so it will have a Coushatta postmark. When Judge Munsinger receives the mail supporting Huell, he insists on avoiding a trial, so Suzanne and Kim try to reach a plea deal. Suzanne is suspicious and investigates, but Jimmy has arranged for pay-as-you-go cellular phones to receive Suzanne's calls, which he and the student film crew who made his TV ads answer with scripted lines that vouch for Huell as a hometown hero. Jimmy has also created a fake website for the Coushatta church which appears to take donations to aid in Huell's defense. The phony show of support convinces Suzanne, and she makes a favorable deal that keeps Huell out of prison. Kim and Jimmy make out in a courthouse stairwell and have celebratory sex that night.
    • The next day, Kim meets with Kevin and Paige to discuss the ongoing Mesa Verde bank expansion. Kevin is still interested in rapid growth, but an increasingly uninterested Kim counsels caution. Later that day, she pulls out the tequila bottle stopper she kept as a souvenir of the previous scam she ran with Jimmy and reminisces. Jimmy scouts for new offices in anticipation of having his law license restored. Kim is elated by the success of their trick and indicates to Jimmy that she wants to engage in similar behavior in the future.
    • Mike arranges a strip club outing for Werner and his construction crew. Mike and Werner head to a quieter bar to talk personally, but Kai starts a fight at the strip club and Mike has to return to restore order. By the time he gets back to the bar, Werner is drunk and discussing with strangers the engineering details of underground concrete construction. The next day, Mike explains to Werner that even though he did not expose precise information about the meth lab, the men he spoke to would likely remember him, making it possible for someone to discover who built it and who owns it. Werner promises it won't happen again, and Mike makes a veiled reference to the likelihood that he will be killed if it does, which Werner acknowledges he understands. Mike updates Gus on construction and reports on the reasons for the delays, including the need to blast through a solid rock wall to install an elevator. He informs Gus about Werner's conversation at the bar and assures Gus he's keeping a watchful eye on Werner to prevent a similar action from happening again.
    • Nacho has recovered from his gunshot wounds and takes on a more prominent role in the Salamanca organization. During weekly collections from their drug dealers, Nacho trains Domingo to handle punishment for dealers short in their weekly payments the same way Hector taught Nacho to do when Domingo was short. When placing money in his safe, he looks at the fake Manitoba identity cards he's had prepared for himself and his father. To his surprise, Eduardo "Lalo" Salamanca arrives to aid in running the family business. Unlike Hector, who did not concern himself with day-to-day details, Lalo seems to be interested in every aspect of the enterprise, giving Nacho cause for concern.
  • February 8-February 12, 2004: Wiedersehen
    • Jimmy and Kim successfully work a scam to replace the approved plans for the Mesa Verde bank branch in Lubbock, Texas with plans for a bigger building without going through the city government's lengthy refiling process. On their way back to Albuquerque, Jimmy talks of getting reinstated to the bar the next day, and using their combined abilities for more scams, but Kim counsels caution.
    • Jimmy attends his reinstatement hearing and answers the committee's questions. One member throws him off at the end by asking why he wants to practice law and who inspired him; Jimmy pauses a bit at both but still provides eloquent answers. They tell him that they will let him know the results by mail in a few days, but Jimmy becomes nervous after he leaves and waits near the hearing room. When the committee leaves, he finds out from their secretary that they have denied his reinstatement. When Jimmy confronts the panel's chairman, he tells Jimmy that some of his answers were insincere, and he can apply for reinstatement again in a year.
    • Kim and Jimmy meet in the parking garage of S&C's office building and Jimmy complains about how he was treated during the hearing. Kim identifies the problem, and points out that Jimmy never mentioned Chuck in his last two answers; since his dispute with Chuck was the reason for his suspension, the panel members considered his answers to be less than genuine. Jimmy gets defensive about his relationship with Chuck, and argues with Kim. He accuses Kim of "slumming" with him any time she needs a favor or wants to run a con, and says she sees him only as "Slippin' Jimmy". Kim angrily points out that she has been Jimmy's biggest supporter since they first met, and has helped him recover from all his mistakes. That night, Jimmy returns to Kim's apartment and wordlessly starts packing his belongings. He admits he screwed up at the hearing and damaged their relationship, and Kim asks if he still wants to be a lawyer. He says he does, and Kim says she will help make it happen.
  • February 13: Kim's 36th birthday
  • February 14- March 21, 2004: Wiedersehen
    • Lalo and Nacho visit Hector, who has been transferred to a nursing home, and communicates only by moving the index finger of his right hand. Lalo reminds Hector of the time he burned down a hotel and killed its owner after the owner, a former college professor, treated Hector disrespectfully. He reveals he kept a souvenir — a concierge bell from the front desk. He ties the bell to Hector's wheelchair, allowing Hector to communicate more effectively. Lalo asks Nacho to step away while he talks to Hector about Gus and then asks Nacho to take him to Los Pollos Hermanos so he can meet Gus in person. Gus acts happy to meet Lalo, but gives Nacho an angry glare, and Nacho can only look back apologetically. Lalo tells Gus that the Salamancas are appreciative of Gus' efforts to save Hector and postulates that perhaps Don Eladio wants continued bad blood between Gus and the Salamancas in order to preserve his own position. Lalo suggests that perhaps Gus and the Salamancas should cooperate more closely, but Gus states he is happy with the current arrangements. Lalo then takes back his original statement, replying that the Salamancas would never really do anything to injure their relationship with Eladio. Lalo asks Nacho to take him to Gus' chicken farm so he can see the location where the Salamancas pick up their drugs after Gus' trucks bring the shipments over the border.
    • Werner and his crew prepare to blast the rock preventing construction of the elevator in the meth lab under the laundry. When the pre-firing test fails, Werner traces the electrical wire for one of the charges. While in the construction area, he suffers a panic attack before finding a splice that has come apart. He repairs it, returns to the rest of the crew, and pretends there's nothing wrong, though his hands are shaking behind his back. Tyrus drives a semi-truck over a pothole outside the laundry in a move timed to coincide with the detonation, which masks its sound and shock. Werner's crew celebrates the successful blast, knowing the end of their longer than expected job is in sight. Werner admits to Mike that he misses his wife and asks if it's possible to fly to Germany for a weekend, and then come back to finish the work. Instead, Mike offers Werner a longer than usual phone call with his wife, which Werner accepts. After the call, Werner returns to his housing unit, but looks around the warehouse at the video cameras. When Mike receives his morning report from the on duty security team the next day, he notices a few monitors show displays with dead pixels. He and his team check the warehouse, and find that Werner used a laser to temporarily disable the cameras by increasing their voltage, creating a flash effect of several seconds that permitted him to move through the warehouse undetected. He then used a hacksaw blade to cut through the padlocks for the doors leading to the roof, and escaped by climbing down the building's maintenance ladder.
  • March 22 - April 1, 2004: Winner
    • Mike arranges a search party to locate Werner Ziegler, while he tries to track down Werner through a money wire agency by pretending to be Werner's brother-in-law and convincing the clerk to let him look at the security camera footage. After confirming that Werner had been there, Mike meets with Gus and shows him the note Werner left indicating he would be gone for four days to be with his wife, and would return to complete the work on the meth lab. Gus confirms that Werner's wife is due at the Denver International Airport within the day. Mike convinces Gus to let him try to find Werner and make him return rather than kill him. While reviewing the transcript of the last call Werner made to his wife from the warehouse, Mike discovers that he is likely going to a local hot spring, and begins calling hotels near facilities in the New Mexico area.
    • Lalo stakes out Gus' chicken farm, where he sees Gus, Victor, and Tyrus leaving to search for Werner. He follows and observes the meeting between Gus and Mike. He tails Mike as Mike continues to search for Werner, but Mike notices the car that's following him and evades it. Lalo goes back to the money wire agency where he saw Mike meet with Gus, but the clerk refuses to give him any information, so he kills the clerk and reviews the security camera footage that shows Mike picking up tourist pamphlets for the hot springs, then burns down the building. Lalo calls hotels until he locates Werner and then places a call to him in which Lalo pretends to work for Gus, enabling him to extract some details of Werner's work on the "superlab" before Mike arrives at Werner's location and ends the call.
    • Mike takes Werner to a remote site and calls Gus to inform him of Lalo's activities. Gus realizes that Lalo knows about Werner and can trace his work back to Gus, so he intends to send men to kill Werner, but Mike persuades Gus to let him do it. Mike has Werner call his wife at the airport and convince her to return to Germany, then assures him that his men will be sent home without incident. He also promises to make Werner's death look like an accident and ensure there's a believable story for authorities to accept, so that his wife will know he died but won't wonder how or why. Werner walks off to look up at the stars and Mike shoots him in the head. Later, Mike meets Gus at the construction site, which Gus is showing to Gale, and it is revealed that the underground meth "superlab" has been created in accordance with Gale's design.
    • On the anniversary of Chuck's death, Jimmy and Kim place "in memoriam" ads in the local newspapers. Jimmy then spends the day feigning mourning at Chuck's gravesite as several of Chuck's former associates visit it. Later that day, Howard holds a celebration to dedicate a law library reading room in Chuck's name, at which he announces HHM's recovery from its recent setbacks. The reading room was paid for by an anonymous donor, but Kim and Drama Girl, who's working as a server at the catered event, reveal to the guests as gossip the fact that Jimmy was the anonymous donor. Kim has Jimmy use these events to his advantage prior to the reinstatement appeal, hoping to influence the panel by showing that despite how he appeared during his first hearing, Jimmy is actually grief-stricken over Chuck's death. Later, Jimmy and Howard sit on a panel reviewing potential candidates for scholarships in Chuck's name. Jimmy focuses on Christy, a student whose background includes a shoplifting charge when she was younger, and tries unsuccessfully to persuade the other board members to award her a scholarship. He follows her out to give her the bad news, and tells her the results were predetermined because the wealthy and powerful will never look past her mistake. He uses the same phrase Chuck used to cut ties with him - that she's "not all that important" to them[a] - and encourages her not to stick to the straight and narrow path she is trying to follow, but to cut corners and do whatever is necessary to succeed because "the winner takes it all". In the parking garage afterward, Jimmy's car won't start and he weeps uncontrollably out of frustration for Christy's situation, recognizing the similarities between her circumstances and his.
    • When Jimmy returns home, Kim is preparing a speech for Jimmy to use at his appeal, and he makes the same point about himself that he made to Christy about her situation - that no matter how hard he tries to overcome his past, the people with wealth and power won't let him. At his appeal hearing, Jimmy begins to use Chuck's last letter to him as part of his argument, but stops midway and gives a seemingly impromptu speech about his remorse for Chuck's death, how much Chuck influenced his decision to pursue the law as a career, and how hard he'll work to be worthy of the McGill name if he's reinstated. Jimmy's speech earns visibly emotional expressions from the panel and from Kim. He wins reinstatement and then stuns Kim by revealing that his speech was actually an insincere performance. When the panel's secretary arrives to lead Jimmy to the office where he'll fill out the paperwork so he can regain his law license, he asks for a doing business as form and states his intention not to practice law under the name "McGill". As he walks down the hall, an even more shocked Kim asks Jimmy what he's doing. He briefly turns around to face her and says "S'all good, man!"

<<< Timeline I
2002, Continued
  • June 20-22, 2002: Alpine Shepherd Boy
    • Two police officers arrive at Chuck's house after his neighbor calls 911 to report the stolen newspaper. Chuck refuses to open the door because of his electromagnetic hypersensitivity. One officer walks around to the basement door, where he finds that the electric lines to the circuit breaker panel have been cut, and there are several empty camping fuel cans from Chuck's lanterns and cook stove laying about. Combining this with Chuck's ramblings about probable cause case law, the two officers mistakenly conclude that Chuck is producing methamphetamine, kick down his front door, and taser him.
    • Tycoon Big Ricky Sipes offers Jimmy $1 million in cash to help him secede from the United States. Jimmy's excitement at the windfall quickly dissipates when the wealthy eccentric reveals he plans to pay him using his custom printed currency. He visits another prospective client, Roland Jaycocks, who asks him to help patent an invention called "Tony the Toilet Buddy", a training toilet that plays recordings of what are supposed to be encouraging phrases to children as they use it. All the phrases are sexual innuendos and when Jimmy points this out, an incensed Roland chases him out of the house. Finally, Jimmy visits Mrs. Strauss, an elderly woman who collects porcelain Hummel figurines, one of which is a rare and valuable alpine shepherd boy. He assists her with estate planning, which consists mostly of allocating her Hummels to various friends and relatives. Mrs. Strauss finds Jimmy's personality charming, and he offers to take half his fee in advance and half after the will is completed, but she pays the full amount upfront in cash.
    • That evening, Jimmy entertains Kim with tales of his eventful day. With two wills and a living trust to his credit, she suggests a career in elder law. Jimmy considers, but is interrupted when Kim takes a call from Howard, who tells her Chuck is in the hospital. In Chuck's hospital room, Jimmy and Kim explain Chuck's condition to a skeptical doctor. She proves Chuck's electromagnetic hypersensitivity is not genuine by turning on the bed's control panel without Chuck noticing. She recommends Chuck be committed to a mental institution, but Chuck wants to go home. Jimmy initially decides to comply with Chuck's wishes, but Howard arrives and tells Jimmy he convinced the DA to make sure Chuck is not committed. Jimmy believes Howard is putting the firm's needs ahead of Chuck's, knowing that if Chuck is committed, Jimmy will become his guardian and have authority to accept HHM's severance offer on Chuck's behalf. Although he scares Howard by threatening to commit Chuck, severing Howard's connection to his "cash cow", Jimmy tells Kim he is not really going to do it, only saying so to irritate Howard.
    • Jimmy leaves the hospital with Chuck and takes him home. At Chuck's house, Jimmy discovers that Chuck has learned of his billboard rescue. Jimmy promises Chuck that he will play by the rules going forward, but Chuck is skeptical. After mimicking Andy Griffith's clothing and mannerisms from Matlock, Jimmy promotes his new specialty at a nursing home by printing a slogan on the bottom of Jell-O containers: "Need a will? Call McGill." Exiting the courthouse parking lot, Jimmy gives Mike a business card that has the same slogan printed on it.
    • After his shift, Mike parks outside a woman's house. She comes out of the house, gets in her car, and stares at Mike uncomfortably for several moments before they each drive away in opposite directions. At his home, Mike is visited by several police officers. He recognizes one detective and asks, "Long way from home, aren't you?", to which the detective replies, "You and me both."
  • June 22, 2002: Five-O
    • The police officers who met Mike at his house are from Philadelphia. Detectives Sanders (whom Mike knows) and Abbasi attempt to question Mike, who requests a lawyer and gives them Jimmy's card. Mike asks Jimmy to "accidentally" spill his coffee on Abbasi so he can steal Abbasi's notebook and investigate how much the police know about him, but Jimmy declines. In the interrogation, the detectives explain they're investigating the death of Mike's son Matt, a rookie police officer who was ambushed and killed when responding to a shots-fired call. In addition, Matt's partners, Troy Hoffman and Jack Fenske, were shot and killed in a similar ambush six months later. The detectives know Hoffman and Fenske were dirty, and suspect Mike of killing them since he left Philadelphia shortly after their deaths. Jimmy moves to end the interrogation and spills his coffee on Abbasi. Mike pretends to help Abbasi clean his jacket and steals the notebook from his breast pocket.
    • At home, Mike discovers from the notebook that Stacey summoned the detectives to Albuquerque. She tells Mike that after she arrived in Albuquerque, she discovered several thousand dollars hidden in the lining of one of her suitcases. She decided to report it, hoping it would lead to the identification of Matt's killer. She suggests that she believes Matt might have been dirty, which angers Mike.
    • Mike admits to Stacey that corruption was rampant in Matt's precinct, to include Mike himself. When Hoffman started accepting bribes from a gang he offered to cut Matt in. Matt asked for Mike's advice, and Mike suggested that not taking the money would mark him as a whistleblower, which could endanger him and his family, so it would be better to accept it. Mike admitted to Matt that he participated in the corruption, leaving Matt upset that the father he looked up to is a criminal. Matt ultimately accepted the money, but didn't spend any, yet Hoffman and Fenske murdered him anyway because his hesitation before accepting made them fear he'd turn them in later. Mike is tormented over corrupting Matt for nothing, saying in tears of anguish "I broke my boy!" Stacey asks who killed Hoffman and Fenske, and Mike says "You know what happened. The question is: can you live with it?"
  • June 23-25, 2002: Bingo
    • At the police station, Jimmy and Mike return Detective Abbasi's notebook, claiming they found it in the parking lot. Despite Abbasi's accusations, Detective Sanders privately assures Mike that he has little to fear. Jimmy finds Chuck standing outside his home, claiming to be building up tolerance to electromagnetic fields. Jimmy stores legal documents at Chuck's house with the ulterior motive of involving him in cases and restarting his interest in the law. Jimmy brings Kim to an office suite he is considering for his practice and asks her to be his partner. She turns him down due to her loyalty to Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill.
    • Kim meets with the Kettlemans and proposes a plea deal that includes a sixteen-month prison sentence, return of the $1.6 million in embezzled money, and an admission of guilt. Since losing a trial would mean a thirty-year prison sentence for Craig, she recommends this course of action. However, Betsy rejects the deal, maintaining her husband's innocence and denying there is any money to return. They fire Kim and hire Jimmy, who initially urges them to accept the plea bargain. Betsy blackmails Jimmy by pointing out that the "retainer" the Kettlemans paid Jimmy would implicate him in their crime. While picking up records from HHM, Jimmy discovers that Kim has been demoted as a result of losing the Kettlemans as clients.
    • Jimmy enlists Mike's help, and Mike sprays a fluorescent liquid on a stack of bills, which he plants on a toy truck left outside by one of the Kettleman children. The Kettlemans find it, assume it came from the embezzled $1.6 million, add it to the rest of the cash in their hiding place. Mike breaks in and uses a blacklight to trace the stolen money to a false bottom in a bathroom cabinet. Jimmy has Mike deliver the money to the district attorney, and Mike tells Jimmy that completing this task will satisfy the debt he owes Jimmy for Jimmy's aid in stealing the detective's notebook. The next day, Jimmy visits the Kettlemans. When they discover the money missing, Betsy again threatens to reveal that Jimmy is also guilty. Jimmy replies that if she does that, she will be guilty of a crime for having given him the bribe money. If Betsy and Craig are both convicted, the Kettleman children will grow up without both parents. The Kettlemans agree to return to HHM and accept the plea deal Kim negotiated, deciding that only one parent going to prison is their best option. A frustrated Jimmy returns to his prospective office space to release his anger.
  • June 26-28, 2002: RICO
    • Jimmy grows suspicious when a client mentions her nursing home, Sandpiper Crossing, controls her pension and Social Security payments by giving her a $500 monthly allowance, deducting fees, and putting the rest in savings. Upon reviewing her invoices, Jimmy's suspicions grow and he begins collecting invoices from other residents. Jimmy and Chuck analyze the documents and find evidence of Sandpiper Crossing systematically overcharging residents, making the company guilty of fraud. Chuck suggests there are grounds for a class action lawsuit, and encourages Jimmy to continue looking for evidence.
    • Jimmy is turned away at Sandpiper Crossing's front desk, preventing him from seeing his clients or meeting with prospective new ones. He can hear that papers are being shredded in the nearby office and goes to a bathroom to hastily write a demand letter on toilet paper, which informs Sandpiper Crossing to cease document destruction. He hands the letter to a manager as he's being escorted from the premises, and later rummages through a dumpster hoping to find more evidence. He finds plastic bags containing the shredded paperwork, which Chuck and Jimmy sort through and piece together to recover an incriminating document. With a solid case against Sandpiper Crossing, Chuck decides to become Jimmy's co-counsel in the case, and Sandpiper Crossing's attorneys agree to a meeting.
    • Mike babysits Kaylee for the day. When Stacey returns from work, she asks Mike what to do with the bribe money Matt hid in her suitcase. Mike tells her she should use it for herself and her daughter so some good can come of it. Stacey tells Mike that even if she uses it, she still doesn't have enough to cover living expenses for Kaylee and herself. Mike returns to Dr. Caldera to follow up on his previous offer of illegal work. He gives Kaylee the dog he used as cover for his visit to Caldera, and promises Stacey he'll cover the costs of keeping it.
    • Sandpiper Crossing's attorneys deny the company is defrauding residents, but concede some were overcharged. The company offers $100,000 to compensate them, but Jimmy presents evidence that Sandpiper Crossing engages in illicit interstate commerce, which makes them eligible for a RICO case. Chuck demands Sandpiper Crossing pay $20 million to settle, which their attorneys refuse. As Chuck and Jimmy prepare to take the case to court, an exhausted Jimmy leaves some paperwork in his car. Preoccupied with his work, Chuck casually leaves his house to retrieve the documents, with none of the usual precautions he takes because of his electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Jimmy is speechless as he watches from inside the front door, then softly calls Chuck's name. Chuck is suddenly stunned to realize where he is and the box of papers falls from his hands.
  • June 28-30, 2002: Pimento
    • Jimmy and Chuck prepare for their lawsuit against Sandpiper Crossing. Chuck warns Jimmy that their attorneys will attempt to file a restraining order to keep him off their property, but Jimmy goes to the courthouse and prevents it from being approved. Upon returning to Chuck's house, he finds that Sandpiper Crossing's attorneys have resorted to a document dump, requiring Chuck and Jimmy to read through several boxes of paperwork before they can respond. Chuck does not believe that he and Jimmy can handle the case alone and suggests that they refer it to Hamlin Hamlin & McGill. Jimmy is reluctant to involve HHM, but arranges a meeting. While Jimmy is asleep, Chuck sneaks out of the house and uses Jimmy's phone to make a call.
    • The next morning, Howard prepares for Chuck and Jimmy's arrival at HHM by confiscating everybody's phones and shutting down the building's electricity. The entire staff greets Chuck's return with a standing ovation. Howard is confident they have a strong case against Sandpiper Crossing and offers to give Jimmy twenty percent of the final settlement or judgment, as well as an of counsel fee of $20,000. However, he makes it clear that Jimmy will not be working on the case or with HHM. This angers Jimmy, who demands to know why he has repeatedly been excluded from the firm. When Howard does not answer his questions, Jimmy decides not to give the case to HHM. Kim confronts Howard about his treatment of Jimmy. Howard resists telling her the reason for his actions, but then confides the truth.
    • Mike receives a job offer to bodyguard Daniel Wormald ("Pryce"), who wants to sell pills stolen from his employer. Pryce initially considers Mike, Sobchak and Man Mountain for the job. Sobchak mocks Mike for carrying no weapons, only a pimento cheese sandwich for lunch. Mike defends himself against Sobchak's attack and disarms him, which prompts a frightened Man Mountain to flee. Pryce drives Mike to an abandoned factory where Mike coaches Pryce on how to act during the drug deal. Nacho arrives and hands over a large sum of cash. When Pryce notes the payment is twenty dollars short, Mike calmly demands that Nacho pay in full. Nacho attempts to intimidate Mike, but pays when he realizes Mike cannot be cowed. As they leave, Mike tells Pryce he had researched Nacho ahead of time and knows this deal was carried out without his bosses' knowledge, so Nacho wouldn't have risked a confrontation.
    • Kim meets Jimmy and suggests he take Howard's offer for the Sandpiper Crossing case, which will enable him to start his own firm. After rejecting Kim's advice, Jimmy checks his phone and realizes Chuck used it the night before. The next day, Jimmy informs Chuck that he will accept Howard's deal, having deduced that Chuck was using Howard to keep Jimmy out of HHM. Jimmy demands to know why and Chuck tells him "You're not a real lawyer!" because Jimmy got his degree from an unaccredited law school. Chuck says he was proud when Jimmy stopped running cons and worked in the HHM mailroom, but he could never be an attorney at HHM because he hasn't changed. Feeling betrayed, Jimmy cuts his ties with Chuck.
  • June 30 - July 18, 2002: Marco
    • Jimmy hands the Sandpiper Crossing case over to HHM and reveals that he figured out Chuck was sabotaging his career. Howard apologizes for his involvement and gives Jimmy his $20,000 of counsel fee. Jimmy requests that Howard take over caring for Chuck, including buying his groceries and daily newspapers, and Howard is impressed with the amount of time and effort Jimmy has devoted to Chuck's well-being.
    • Jimmy hosts bingo at the local senior center. After an improbable string of numbers beginning with the letter "B" are drawn at the start of a game, he fixates on words beginning with that letter which remind him of Chuck, including "betrayal" and "brother". Jimmy breaks down and rants about taking revenge against Chet, who "may have" owed him money or cheated with his wife, by defecating through the sunroof of Chet's car (a move he calls the "Chicago Sunroof") without realizing Chet's children were in the backseat. Since Chet had connections to law enforcement officials, he had the District Attorney file charges for indecent exposure, which could have forced Jimmy to register as a sex offender if he were convicted. Chuck managed to have the charges dropped, but Jimmy attributes his current situation to that event. He quits hosting the bingo game and storms out.
    • After returning to Cicero, Jimmy reunites with Marco. They run a scam on an unsuspecting businessman, which involves the sale of a "rare, valuable JFK half-dollar". Jimmy and Marco spend several days running cons. At the end of the week, Jimmy has multiple messages from his elderly clients asking where he is. Jimmy explains to Marco that he is a budding elder law attorney, and that he must return to Albuquerque to see to his clients. Marco is envious that Jimmy has a legitimate career, pointing out that he has a dead end job thanks to his brother in law and nothing to live for but his cons. Marco convinces Jimmy to stay for one last con, to which Jimmy reluctantly agrees. While running the "fake Rolex" scam (previously seen in "Hero"), Marco suffers a heart attack and collapses. Jimmy rushes to his aid, and before dying Marco thanks Jimmy for providing the greatest week of his life. Jimmy inherits Marco's pinky ring, which he begins to wear even though it's too big, and which Saul Goodman wears throughout the events of Breaking Bad.
    • Kim calls Jimmy to report that the Sandpiper case has grown too big for HHM to handle, requiring them to partner with Davis & Main, a Santa Fe firm. Because of his detailed knowledge of the case and rapport with the clients, D&M is interested in hiring Jimmy as an associate and placing him on track to become a partner. Jimmy arranges to meet his prospective employer at the courthouse, but as he walks through the parking lot, he looks at Marco's pinky ring and stops. As he's about to drive away, he stops at the attendant's booth and asks Mike why they didn't keep the $1.6 million they took from the Kettlemans. Mike recalls Jimmy didn't take the money because he wanted to do the "right thing", and says he didn't take it because he was "hired to do a job and he did it." Jimmy assures Mike he will not make the same mistake again, and drives off while humming "Smoke on the Water", the same song Marco was humming just before he died.
  • July 8: Walt Jr’s 9th birthday
  • July 18-25, 2002: Switch
    • Jimmy declines Davis & Main's employment offer in Santa Fe, closes down his law practice, and uses a stolen credit card to vacation under an assumed name at a luxury hotel. Kim confronts Jimmy about his decision, but he's content since his reason for becoming a lawyer was to impress Chuck, who is not supportive. Jimmy convinces Kim to help him con an obnoxious businessman, Ken, into paying their expensive tequila bar tab by posing as a pair of inexperienced investors. Thrilled by the experience, Kim keeps the elaborate stopper from the tequila bottle as a souvenir, and spends the night with Jimmy, but it becomes clear that she does not want to participate in this behavior all the time. Jimmy takes the job with Davis & Main, and finds that benefits include an expensive company car as well as the cocobolo desk he always wanted. Jimmy notices a wall switch in his new office which has a note posted on it indicating that the switch should never be turned off. He turns it off, and waits a moment to see what happens. When nothing does, he turns it back on.
    • Mike refuses another job with Daniel Wormald ("Pryce"), who has spent some of his drug money on a flashy and expensive new Hummer that Mike believes will draw too much attention. Pryce believes he no longer needs Mike as a bodyguard and fires him, ignoring Mike's warnings that it is not wise to deal with Nacho alone. Nacho takes advantage of Mike's absence and obtains Pryce's address and real name from the papers in the Hummer's glove compartment. Pryce's house is ransacked and he calls the police, upset that his valuable baseball card collection has been stolen. The responding officers are suspicious about the nature of the burglary, as certain valuable items such as Pryce's computer and TV were left untouched. They are also suspicious of Pryce's Hummer. When they search inside his house, the officers find a hidden compartment in the wall behind Pryce's couch, apparently located and emptied by the burglar.
  • July 26-27, 2002: Cobbler
    • As Chuck plays French composer Gabriel Fauré's Sicilienne on the piano at his home, Howard arrives to deliver groceries. They discuss the Sandpiper case as well as Jimmy's employment at Davis & Main. Chuck is apprehensive about Jimmy joining D&M, and Howard says it was mostly through Kim's efforts that D&M hired him. After Howard leaves, Chuck returns to his piano, turns on the metronome, and stares at it silently.
    • Before a meeting between Hamlin Hamlin & McGill and D&M, Kim rearranges the seating so that she and Jimmy sit side by side. On a break, they share a cigarette and a kiss, and she gives him a travel mug that originally read "World's Best Lawyer" but which she has altered to read "World's 2nd Best Lawyer". They agree to meet later that night. At the nail salon Jimmy receives his new company car, a Mercedes-Benz, and is frustrated that his new mug does not fit in the cup holder like it did in his old car.
    • At the courthouse, Mike is surprised to see Daniel Wormald ("Pryce") arrive in his Hummer. As Daniel tells Mike about the burglary at his house, Mike cautions him about talking to the police. Daniel is adamant about getting his baseball cards back and disregards Mike's advice. In order to prevent Daniel from implicating him in Daniel's drug deals, Mike offers to find the cards. He tracks down Nacho at his father's upholstery shop and asks for the cards. Nacho brushes him off, so Mike threatens to inform Tuco about Nacho's secret drug deals. Nacho agrees to bargain, and they make a deal for Daniel to trade his Hummer to Nacho in return for the baseball cards and $10,000.
    • Chuck sits in during a meeting between HHM and D&M. Jimmy is hesitant to continue but with silent encouragement from Kim he discusses the Sandpiper clients. Mike phones Jimmy and asks him to represent Daniel, whom the police want to interview. Daniel tells the detectives that he has retrieved his baseball cards so there's no need for further investigation, but the detectives are skeptical. Jimmy talks to them privately and fabricates a story about a failed gay love affair and the stealing of the baseball cards as revenge. To provide an explanation for Daniel's hiding place, Jimmy claims it contained videos of Daniel sitting on various types of pies and crying, a fictitious fetish supposedly called "Hoboken squat cobbler" which he describes in great detail. The detectives eventually believe him and let Daniel go.
    • That night, Jimmy tells Kim about Daniel's case, including fabricating a video to "prove" the reason Daniel had a hiding place behind his couch. Kim is appalled that Jimmy has resorted to such an underhanded and unlawful scheme, which could jeopardize his career. Jimmy counters by asking why she was willing to play along with conning Ken. She retorts that it had nothing to do with work. She asks him why he was willing to falsify evidence to exonerate a client, and when Jimmy cannot provide a satisfactory answer Kim says, "I can't hear about this sort of thing ever again" to which Jimmy responds, "You won't".
  • August 11, 2002: Skyler’s 32nd birthday
  • August 15-17, 2002: Amarillo
    • In Amarillo, Texas, Jimmy bribes a Sandpiper bus driver to have his bus "break down," allowing him to sign up new residents as plaintiffs for the lawsuit while ostensibly complying with bar association rules against soliciting clients.
    • On returning to Albuquerque, Jimmy presents his client outreach report at a joint Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill-Davis & Main strategy conference, proudly announcing he's obtained twenty-four more clients. Chuck expresses suspicion about the legality of Jimmy's methods, pointing out only one response to the law firms' mailed notices to prospective clients, and wondering if Jimmy has engaged in illegal solicitation. Jimmy explains that retirement homes are tight knit communities and information spreads fast by word of mouth, which satisfies everyone but Kim. Kim is wary and warns Jimmy to keep his methods legitimate, since she recommended him to D&M and his actions will reflect on her reputation.
    • Jimmy tries to use the standard mailing of legal notices to prospective Sandpiper clients, but with little success, due to the elderly recipients either ignoring the letters or Sandpiper intercepting their mail. Jimmy suggests filming a targeted television ad, since the Sandpiper residents set aside one hour of free time to watch television. Cliff Main is intrigued by Jimmy's idea and promises to talk to him more about it when he returns from a week-long business trip. Jimmy views Davis & Main's previous television ad (for a mesothelioma class action lawsuit), but finds it dull and lacking "showmanship." Jimmy independently films his own TV commercial, hiring the camera crew he previously used for the billboard stunt. He contacts the sales department of KKTV in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a market that showed zero responses from the Sandpiper legal notice mailings, and arranged for the commercial to be run in that market as an "experiment". The ad depicts one of his elderly clients as a poor old woman being victimized by Sandpiper Crossing and the ad closes by urging residents to call D&M. Kim is impressed with Jimmy's work, and Jimmy decides to run the ad without the firm's approval. It is a massive success, with D&M gaining over a hundred clients in a single day. However, Cliff is furious that Jimmy released the ad without consulting him or the partners first and demands an explanation from him. Jimmy then lies to Kim about the setback.
    • Stacey voices concerns to Mike about gunshots she has heard in her neighborhood over the past two nights, and says the police have done nothing about them. Mike does overnight surveillance without Stacey's knowledge and finds that the "gunshots" were apparently the sound of newspaper deliveries hitting the sidewalk. Stacey calls Mike the following morning, and says there were three more gunshots the night before. Mike visits Stacey's house and she points out a chip in an outside wall that she insists is from a bullet. Despite knowing that there were no gunshots, Mike tells Stacey what she wants to hear – that he will help her get out of the neighborhood.
    • Dr. Caldera offers Mike a lucrative job as an enforcer for a loan shark, which pays better than bodyguard jobs. Mike declines, as he is not interested in performing any more illegal work, especially work that requires him to hurt or kill others. Caldera points out that if Mike wants "next level pay", he must be willing to do "next level work." Mike later receives a call from Caldera, who tells him about a job offer with a client who specifically requested Mike. Mike meets the client, who is revealed to be Nacho, and they discuss what seems like a "hit" on some "guy".
  • August 18-23, 2002: Gloves Off
    • Despite Jimmy's assertion that his commercial to recruit clients for the Sandpiper Crossing lawsuit was a success, the partners at Davis & Main lambaste him for airing it without their consent. Even though the majority of the partners want to fire Jimmy for cause, Cliff decides to give him a second chance with the understanding that he'll be under a great deal more scrutiny going forward.
    • Jimmy leaves Kim an urgent voicemail requesting that she call him before speaking to Howard. Jimmy's too late, because Kim is already being grilled by Howard and Chuck at the HHM offices over her failure to warn them about Jimmy's ad. Not wanting to get Jimmy into even more trouble, she takes responsibility for not letting them know in advance that the commercial would air, explaining that she didn't think it was necessary. A furious Howard reprimands her, and she promises it won't happen again.
    • Later on Jimmy drives to Chuck's house and starts to enter, but realizes he forgot to remove his electronics, so he grudgingly turns back to Chuck's mailbox and empties his pockets. When Chuck doesn't answer, Jimmy uses his key to enter. He finds Chuck shivering on the couch, still dressed to leave for work but covered by a space blanket. Chuck refuses to go to the hospital, so Jimmy wraps him in a second space blanket, then sits to wait with him. The next morning, Jimmy condemns Chuck for allowing Howard to reprimand Kim, saying he believes Chuck could have come to Kim's defense but did not to because he doesn't want Jimmy to be a lawyer. Chuck refuses to intercede for Kim, telling Jimmy that he is "a chimp with a machine gun" because he causes harm to everyone around him, but cannot admit his own mistakes or wrongdoing. Jimmy offers to quit practicing law if Chuck will help Kim, but Chuck tells Jimmy he already made enough mistakes to get himself fired. Finding that Chuck cannot be persuaded, Jimmy storms out.
    • Nacho and Mike monitor a small Mexican restaurant. Nacho tells Mike he and Tuco meet at this location regularly to settle accounts with their dealers and it would be easy to kill Tuco as he enters or exits. Mike refuses to kill Tuco, asserting that it would attract retaliation by the Salamancas and the cartel. Instead, Mike plans to remove Tuco from an active role in the Salamanca drug business, which will satisfy Nacho's needs. Mike calls the police, fakes a minor accident in the restaurant parking lot which involves his car and Tuco's, and then goads Tuco into striking him repeatedly just as police arrive. Because Tuco was carrying a gun when he beat Mike, he is arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. Tuco is taken away in handcuffs and Nacho later pays Mike, but Mike declines to give a reason for going to such trouble to avoid killing Tuco.
    • Mike returns home to rest. He tosses a stack of hundred-dollar bills onto his kitchen table, pulls a bag of frozen vegetables out of his freezer and presses it to his face. He sinks into a chair, his eye swollen shut and his face gruesomely beaten.
  • August 24-27, 2002: Rebecca
    • Jimmy meets Kim in the HHM document review room, where she is relegated to entry-level work, and proposes that she sue HHM for discrimination and creating a hostile work environment. Kim rejects this idea, suggesting it would be career suicide because no one would ever hire her again. She tells Jimmy to worry about his own job while she worries about hers. Throughout his day, Jimmy is accompanied by junior associate Erin (Jessie Ennis), who claims to want to help Jimmy fit in better at D&M, though Jimmy realizes Cliff directed her to "babysit" him in the wake of the controversy over his TV ad.
    • Kim decides that bringing a major new client to HHM is her best course of action for escaping document review, so she spends her free time calling law school, law firm, and business contacts. Kim capitalizes on one of these relationships to land Mesa Verde Bank as a client, meaning the potential of millions of dollars in revenue for HHM. Howard is happy to have the new client, but gives Kim no credit, and keeps her working in document review.
    • Chuck promises to work on Kim's transfer out of document review, and tells her a story about when Jimmy and Chuck's late father ran a store in Cicero, Illinois. According to Chuck, Jimmy embezzled money, which eventually led to the store's failure. As a result, Chuck is always skeptical of Jimmy's schemes and plans.
    • Mike is approached by Hector Salamanca, the leader of the Salamanca drug cartel and Tuco's uncle. Hector has no issue with Tuco spending time in prison as a learning experience, but objects to the length of the sentence he will receive for assault with a deadly weapon. He offers Mike $5,000 to tell police the gun at the scene of the fight between Tuco and Mike was Mike's, which will result in a reduction to Tuco's sentence.
  • August 27-30, 2002: Bali Hai
    • Jimmy finds it difficult adjusting to his new job at D&M, and is unable to sleep in his apartment, so he returns to his old boiler room office, where he has no trouble falling asleep. The next morning, Jimmy leaves Kim a voicemail in which he happily sings "Bali Ha'i" from South Pacific. With Chuck's help, Kim is transferred out of HHM's document review room, but is treated coldly by Howard, who gives her humiliating and menial assignments, including arguing unwinnable motions in court.
    • Kim is approached by Rich Schweikart of Schweikart & Cokely, who tells her that he was impressed with her performance while arguing a motion she was sure to lose. He offers her a position at S&C that will include better pay and benefits, and the promise of meaningful work. Unsure of what to do, Kim relieves her stress by running another con with Jimmy. They fool an investor into giving them $10,000, though the next morning Kim tells Jimmy they will not cash the check, but keep it as a "souvenir". She confides her doubts about whether to move to S&C, and expresses jealousy that Jimmy always seems to know what he wants. Though he's increasingly frustrated at D&M, Jimmy lies to Kim about how working at D&M is everything he's always wanted.
    • Mike refuses Hector's offer of $5,000 to say the gun found when Tuco assaulted him is Mike's, so Hector has his henchmen, including Leonel and Marco (the Cousins), wage a harassment campaign. Stacey and Kaylee receive implied and explicit threats, so Mike agrees to take responsibility for the gun, but only if he's paid $50,000. Hector agrees, and Mike later gives $25,000 to Nacho to reimburse him for the money Nacho paid Mike to get Tuco arrested. Mike argues that he owes Nacho, since Tuco's reduced sentence means Mike didn't live up to the terms of their agreement.
  • August 30 - September 7, 2002: Inflatable
    • Jimmy represents Mike when Mike tells the prosecutor that the gun found after the fight between Mike and Tuco was not Tuco's. Jimmy decides to quit D&M, but learns that if he quits, he will have to repay the signing bonus he received when he joined. Jimmy finds a loophole in his contract which permits him to keep the money if he is fired without cause. While waiting at a stop light, he sees an inflatable tube man outside an oil changing shop. Inspired by the colorful display, he executes a plan to get fired by doing everything he can think of to be irritating at work, from dressing in flashy suits to playing bagpipes in his office to not flushing the toilet after trips to the bathroom. Cliff finally fires Jimmy and tells him losing the signing bonus is worth it just to be rid of him.
    • Jimmy approaches Kim and attempts to convince her to partner with him in their own law firm. Kim agrees, but only on the condition that Jimmy play it "straight and narrow". Jimmy admits that he can only be himself, which means pushing the envelope on what's legal and ethical, so Kim politely refuses. Jimmy then moves back to his old office at the nail salon.
    • Mike promises to buy Stacey a new house in a better, safer neighborhood and begins scouting Hector's restaurant. Kim proposes a compromise to Jimmy, suggesting they start separate solo firms, but share office space to save on expenses and support each other if needed. Jimmy considers her offer, and doesn't immediately respond.
  • September 7, 2002: Walt’s 44th birthday
  • September 8-13, 2002: Fifi
    • Jimmy accepts Kim's offer to set up separate firms but share office space, and Kim announces to Howard her resignation from HHM. Howard accepts Kim's resignation, wishes her well and they both shake hands. Immediately after Kim exits Howard's office, Howard and she race to secure the Mesa Verde account. Kim meets with Kevin and Paige, Mesa Verde's president and chief legal counsel, and they agree to become a client of her solo practice. Kim and Jimmy set up their practices in a re-purposed dentists' office. Howard reports Kim's resignation and the loss of Mesa Verde to Chuck. Chuck braves his electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms to meet with Kevin and Paige at HHM and damns Kim with faint praise, which causes Kevin to back out of his agreement with Kim and continue as an HHM client. Chuck is unable to continue suppressing his EHS symptoms, and collapses as soon as the meeting is over.
    • Jimmy pretends Fudge, an elderly man who is a registered sex offender, is a World War II veteran so his camera crew and he can gain access to a U.S. Air Force base. Once inside the gates, they use FIFI, a World War II-era Boeing B-29 Superfortress, as the backdrop for a TV ad to attract new elder care clients to Jimmy's practice. Upset at losing Mesa Verde as a client, Kim has doubts about her future with Jimmy, but he reassures her that there will be other opportunities to win over big clients.
    • Jimmy hears that Chuck's condition has worsened because of his time at HHM's offices, and visits Chuck at home. While Chuck is asleep, Jimmy accesses the Mesa Verde files and falsifies address information on the application documents for a soon-to-open branch. Mike continues to watch Hector's restaurant and tracks his movements to a remote garage. After returning home, he begins to assemble a homemade spike strip.

  • Somewhere in Mexico, Gus and Max meet with Hector, Juan Bolsa, and their boss, Don Eladio. Gus and Max pitch their methamphetamine scheme to Eladio in hopes of going into business with the cartel. Max, who is a biochemist and chemical engineer, produces the meth, and the pair sell it out of their restaurant, named Los Pollos Hermanos after Gus and Max, who are as close as brothers. Although Eladio likes the idea, he feels Gus has disrespected him by giving meth "samples" to Eladio's henchmen in order to manipulate him into a meeting. Moreover, Eladio wonders what Gus' purpose is in the business if Max is the cook of the high-grade meth. Before Gus can explain, Hector shoots Max through the head and forces Gus to lie down and look his dead partner in the eyes. Eladio tells Gus that the only reason he shot Max and not Gus is because Eladio knows who Gus really is, and warns him that he's "not in Chile anymore."

In the alley, they discover a wallet with cash next to a barely conscious drunk man. Stevie takes the cash, and Jimmy takes the man's Rolex watch. Jimmy estimates it to be worth more than the wallet, leading Stevie to trade the found money plus some additional cash of his own in exchange for the watch. After Stevie runs away with the watch, a cheap counterfeit, Jimmy and the "unconscious" man return to Jimmy's residence to congratulate each other and split the proceeds of their scam.
  • Approximate: Jimmy is in jail in Cicero, Illinois, and faces multiple charges and the prospect of having to register as a sex offender because of his "Chicago Sunroof" incident. Chuck promises Jimmy that he will serve as Jimmy's defense counsel, but only if Jimmy agrees to stop running cons and engaging in illegal behavior.
  • Approximate: Jimmy has been released from jail with Chuck's help. He goes to a favorite bar in his hometown of Cicero, Illinois to say goodbye to Marco, his friend and partner in crime. Jimmy has agreed to Chuck's demand that he move to Albuquerque to live an honest life and give up his cons, which disappoints Marco. Jimmy says goodbye to Marco in Cicero, explaining that as part of Chuck's work to get him out of jail, he's agreed to take a legitimate job in Albuquerque. Jimmy tells Marco that he’s moving to Albuquerque to work in the mailroom at Chuck’s law firm. Marco bemoans Jimmy’s decision, arguing that the move is a waste of Slippin’ Jimmy’s talents – but Jimmy’s mind is made up, and he leaves.

The office applauds and cheers Chuck's victory, including Kim, who takes the opportunity to show off her own legal acumen. She tells Jimmy she admires Chuck's work and hopes to do the same herself someday. Jimmy tries to congratulate Chuck, but Chuck is dismissive. As Jimmy continues to deliver mail, he passes the firm's law library. Checking to make sure no one is watching, he enters and lets the door close behind him.
  • A real estate agent shows Walter and Skyler (pregnant with Walter White Jr.) the house where they'll eventually live. Walt, then working at the prestigious Sandia Laboratory and envisioning a bright future with three children, worries they aren't setting their sights high enough with this house.

Jimmy shows Chuck his results and explains he studied law at the University of American Samoavia distance learning. When Jimmy shows Chuck he passed the bar, Chuck says "this must have taken you years!" Chuck tells Jimmy he is proud of him. Jimmy hopes to be hired by the firm as an attorney, but Chuck hesitantly replies that the hiring must first be cleared by the other partners. During an office celebration in the mailroom to celebrate, Howard tells Jimmy that the firm will not hire him immediately, and says the partners will re-examine Jimmy's application in six months.
    • Chuck provides the ritual introduction and stands beside Jimmy as Jimmy is inducted into the New Mexico bar. Kim joins Jimmy and Chuck and other HHM employees at a karaoke bar to celebrate. Chuck is about to leave but a drunken Jimmy convinces Chuck to stay and join him for karaoke with "The Winner Takes It All" by ABBA. Chuck helps Jimmy home and to bed.

He introduces Ximenez (the truck driver Mike later robs and Hector has killed) to Eladio and tells Eladio he's purchased an Albuquerque ice cream store that will facilitate the sale of drugs for the cartel, because Ximenez can bring the drugs over the Mexican border when he delivers bulk ice cream and supplies for the store. Hector says he's named the store for Eladio -- "El Griego Guiñador" ("The Winking Greek"). (Eladio is a Spanish name which means "The Greek".) He also presents the gift of a bobblehead mascot for the store which looks like Eladio and is nicknamed "Sabrosito" ("Tasty"), as well as a large cash tribute. Juan Bolsa then arrives with a gift from Gus—a Los Pollos Hermanos T-shirt—and a much larger cash tribute. Eladio ridicules Hector's gifts and tribute, but says the teasing is all in fun. Hector is humiliated and becomes so angry he hesitates to follow Eladio into his house for continued conversation, but Juan reminds Hector to show respect to their boss.

    • Approximate: Chuck enlists Jimmy in an attempt to reconcile with Rebecca by inviting her to dinner at Chuck's house. Because of his EHS, he has had all the electronics removed from his house. Rebecca doesn't know that Chuck believes he suffers from EHS, so he hides his illness by telling Rebecca that the power company accidentally turned off his electricity. Although Rebecca seems to accept Chuck's explanation, she answers a call on her cellular phone which causes Chuck to panic and knock the phone out of her hands. When Jimmy attempts to tell Rebecca about Chuck's EHS, Chuck forbids it and says Jimmy shouldn't be the one to break the news.

  • August: In Philadelphia, corruption was rampant in Matt's precinct, including Mike. When Hoffman started accepting bribes from a gang he offered to cut Matt in. Matt asked for Mike's advice, and Mike suggested that not taking the money would mark him as a whistleblower, which could endanger him and his family, so it would be better to accept it. Mike admitted to Matt that he participated in the corruption, leaving Matt upset that the father he looked up to is a criminal. Matt ultimately accepted the money, but didn't spend any, yet Hoffman and Fenske murdered him anyway because his hesitation before accepting made them fear he'd turn them in later.

2002

  • Approximate: Leonel and Marco Salamanca are 25 years old
  • February 13: Kim's 34th birthday
  • March, 2002:
    • Approximate: In Philadelphia, Mike breaks into a police car parked outside a bar. He enters the bar, and after a few drinks, confronts Fenske and Hoffman, telling them "I know it was you". A few hours later, Mike is the last customer at closing time, and announces to the bartender that he plans to move to Albuquerque. As he staggers home, Fenske and Hoffman drive up in their patrol car, offer him a ride, and help him into the back seat. They take Mike's handgun and ask him what he meant when he talked to them earlier. Apparently still drunk, Mike tells them he knows they killed Matt. They drive to an abandoned factory. Fenske and Hoffman plan to kill Mike and make it look like suicide, but Mike reveals that he's not really drunk. Fenske attempts to shoot him, but the gun Fenske took from Mike is empty. Mike shoots Fenske three times using the pistol he hid in the backseat earlier and retrieved while pretending to be drunk. Hoffman tries to draw his pistol, but Mike's shot hits him in the head. Fenske then draws his service pistol and fires twice, with one round hitting Mike in the left shoulder. Mike returns fire and hits Fenske in the neck. Fenske tries to crawl away, but Mike steps on his leg to flip Fenske over. Fenske raises a hand as if to beg for his life, but Mike kills him with a shot to the head. Mike picks up his unloaded handgun and walks off, preparing to depart for Albuquerque.
    • Mike arrives by train at Albuquerque's Alvarado Transportation Center. After re-bandaging a fresh bullet wound in his shoulder, he meets his daughter-in-law, Stacey, and her daughter, Kaylee. Stacey and Mike briefly discuss the death of Matt, Mike's son and Stacey's husband. Stacey questions whether Matt might have been involved in something illegal, based on his behavior during their final encounter, but Mike brushes off her concerns. After the meeting, he questions a cabdriver as to "how well" he knows the neighborhood, and is later seen having his shoulder wound treated by a local veterinarian, Dr. Caldera, who inquires as to whether Mike might be interested in any "work", which Mike declines.
  • May 13-25, 2002: Uno
    • Jimmy McGill is a struggling public defender in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He's representing three teenagers and tries to convince a jury that their actions were merely "boys being boys". But the prosecutor plays a video the teenagers made of them breaking into a morgue and having sex with a severed head. Afterwards, Jimmy complains about being paid too little for the defense. He gets a call from a prospective client, to whom he pretends to be his own mild-mannered Irish secretary. On his way out of the parking lot, Jimmy is stopped by Mike Ehrmantraut, the parking lot attendant, who refuses to let him exit without either a payment or a court-supplied parking sticker.
    • Later that day, Jimmy meets at a diner with the prospective clients, county treasurer Craig Kettleman and his wife, Betsy, who are being investigated for the disappearance of county funds. The Kettlemans are hesitant to hire Jimmy. Later, Jimmy is ordering flowers for the Kettlemans when he hits a man on a skateboard. The skateboarder's twin brother records the incident on a video camera and threatens to call the police unless Jimmy pays them hush money. Recognizing their ruse, Jimmy refuses to pay and kicks the "victim". Jimmy returns to his "office" – the boiler room of a Vietnamese beauty salon. Opening his mail, Jimmy finds a check for $26,000 from Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill (HHM), his brother Chuck's law firm, which he proceeds to tear into several pieces. Jimmy confronts the partners, accusing them of trying to cheat Chuck out of his rightful share of the partnership. On his way out of the HHM office, he sees the Kettlemans going in, which causes him to become agitated over losing a potentially lucrative client.
    • Jimmy visits Chuck, who has had a mental breakdown and believes he has electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Chuck requires visitors to leave their remote car door-opening keys and cellular phones in his mailbox and ground themselves before entering his house. He has no working lights or refrigerator and works from home by lantern on a manual typewriter. Chuck refuses a buyout and also suggests that Jimmy stop using the name "McGill" for his personal firm to avoid public confusion with HHM. Jimmy tracks down the two skateboarders, Cal and Lars Lindholm, and suggests a partnership, telling them how he got the nickname "Slippin' Jimmy" as a young man by faking "slip and falls" to get easy money. He arranges for one to be hit by a car driven by Betsy Kettleman, which will enable him to make another pitch to defend the Kettlemans on the embezzlement charge. Instead of stopping to check Cal's status after hitting him, the motorist just drives off. Cal and Lars give chase, but when the car stops, an elderly Hispanic woman exits. They try to get her to pay and follow her into her house. Jimmy arrives moments later to try and save them, trying to get in by referring to himself accurately but misleadingly as an "officer of the court", but is pulled into the house at gunpoint by Tuco Salamanca.
  • May 25 - June 15, 2002: Mijo
    • Tuco is preparing salsa in the kitchen when his grandmother returns after the run-in with Cal and Lars. Though they accidentally targeted the wrong driver, Cal and Lars follow her home and falsely claim serious injuries from their staged hit-and-run accident. They demand money from Tuco's grandmother and follow her into her house. Tuco sends his grandmother upstairs to her bedroom and then uses her cane to beat Cal and Lars unconscious. He arranges for Ignacio "Nacho" Varga, No-Doze and Gonzo to come with a van to pick up Cal and Lars. Jimmy arrives searching for Cal and Lars, and Tuco answers the front door and drags him inside at gunpoint.
    • Tuco questions Jimmy, who insists that Cal and Lars did not intentionally target Tuco's grandmother. Tuco allows Jimmy to see Cal and Lars, who are tied up in the basement, but when Jimmy removes the gag from one of them, he immediately implicates Jimmy in the phony hit and run scam. Tuco and his men take Jimmy, Cal and Lars to the desert and continue questioning Jimmy. Thinking quickly, Jimmy tells Tuco he's a lawyer, but when Tuco doesn't believe him and threatens to cut off a finger, Jimmy falsely claims he's an FBI agent. Nacho is suspicious and threatens Jimmy again, so Jimmy goes back to admitting the truth—he is a lawyer who intended to scam the Kettlemans. Nacho convinces Tuco this is the truth and that killing a lawyer would attract unwanted attention. Tuco frees Jimmy, but moves to kill Cal and Lars. Jimmy convinces Tuco to spare their lives and talks him into only breaking one leg each as punishment.
    • After bringing Cal and Lars to a hospital, Jimmy meets a woman for a date at a bar. A customer's snapping breadsticks reminds Jimmy of the broken legs Cal and Lars suffered, so he excuses himself and vomits in the bathroom. An intoxicated Jimmy later arrives at Chuck's house and forgets to leave his cellular phone in the mailbox before collapsing on the couch. Due to Chuck's electromagnetic hypersensitivity, he throws Jimmy's cell phone into the yard. The following morning, Chuck admits to seeing the brothers' hospital bill. Jimmy reassures Chuck that he is not going back to the "Slippin' Jimmy" cons he used to run.
    • After several days in court, Jimmy returns to his office and sees that he has no messages. One of the beauty salon employees tells him a client has arrived—Nacho. Nacho tells Jimmy he wants to take the $1.6 million stolen by the Kettlemans, for which he will pay Jimmy a finder's fee. Jimmy insists he is a lawyer, not a criminal. Nacho writes his number on one of Jimmy's matchbooks and tells Jimmy to let him know when Jimmy figures out he is "in the game."
  • June, 2002: Jesse graduates from J. P. Wynne High School.
  • June 15-16, 2002: Nacho
    • Jimmy is anxious about Nacho's plot to extort the Kettlemans. He calls Kim Wexler, an acquaintance at HHM, which represents the Kettlemans. Jimmy indirectly warns Kim about the potential danger to the Kettlemans, but then breaks off the call, insisting that he is "no hero." Later that night, Jimmy calls the Kettlemans anonymously and warns them. The Kettlemans look outside and see somebody in a parked van watching them.
    • The next morning, Kim tells Jimmy that something has happened to the Kettlemans. He rushes to their house to find it surrounded by police, and finds out the Kettlemans, including their two children, are missing. Believing that Nacho has kidnapped them, Jimmy tries to call Nacho, but receives only his voicemail greeting. While waiting for Nacho to call back, Jimmy is picked up by the police, who tell him they have arrested Nacho on suspicion of kidnapping the Kettlemans, and he has requested Jimmy as his legal counsel.
    • At the police station, Nacho admits to Jimmy that he performed surveillance on the Kettlemans but denies kidnapping them. Nacho warns Jimmy that if he does not get the charges dropped, Nacho will have him killed. Jimmy is unsuccessful at persuading the police to release Nacho, but convinces Kim to take him to the Kettleman house so he can investigate. Jimmy notices some inconsistencies, such as a missing child's doll, and theorizes that the Kettlemans staged their kidnapping. Jimmy admits to Kim that he warned the Kettlemans about Nacho and probably drove them into hiding.
    • At the courthouse, Jimmy starts a fight with Mike, who subdues him. The police ask Mike to press assault charges against Jimmy so that they can leverage him to testify against Nacho. Mike takes Jimmy's side and refuses to press charges. He suggests that Jimmy's theory about the Kettlemans' disappearance is correct. He recounts a similar case he investigated as a Philadelphia police officer, and tells Jimmy that the Kettlemans are probably hiding somewhere close to home. With the new lead, Jimmy explores the desert near the Kettleman house and finds their campsite. He confronts the Kettlemans, gets into a struggle with them, and inadvertently discovers the stolen money.
  • June 16-20, 2002: Hero
    • Jimmy gives the Kettlemans the option of hiring him as their lawyer, but they refuse. The Kettlemans instead offer Jimmy a bribe if he does not reveal that they stole the $1.6 million, and he accepts. Nacho is released from police custody and accuses Jimmy of warning the Kettlemans, for which Nacho says Jimmy will face "consequences". Jimmy says he warned the family only for the sake of the children, and that Nacho should be grateful that the warning prevented Nacho from committing kidnapping or murder, for which he probably would have been charged, since he was noticed while conducting surveillance on the Kettleman home.
    • In his office at the nail salon, Jimmy cooks his books to make it look like the bribe he took from the Kettlemans is legitimate payment for his services. He spends the money on a personal makeover and a billboard advertisement which shares obvious similarities with Hamlin Hamlin & McGill. Kim confronts Jimmy over the imitation, and Howard Hamlin sues him for trademark infringement. The court rules in HHM's favor, and Jimmy is ordered to remove the billboard within 48 hours.
    • After failing to persuade any news outlets to cover his predicament as a human interest story, Jimmy hires a freelance media team to record his video plea for sympathy. During filming, the worker removing the billboard slips and falls, and is held up only by his safety harness. Jimmy climbs up and pulls the worker to safety while passersby watch and record, as does his media team. It is revealed that the accident was staged by Jimmy as a publicity stunt, which Howard and Kim see through when they watch it on the television news. The stunt works, and Jimmy acquires numerous new clients.
    • Jimmy visits Chuck and brings him his newspapers, but hides the local one that includes a report on the "rescue". Chuck congratulates Jimmy on his newfound success, but becomes suspicious when he notices his local paper is missing. Jimmy dismisses it as meaningless, but after he leaves, a suspicious Chuck braves exposure to electricity to run to his neighbor's driveway and steal their newspaper (leaving a $5 bill as payment), which leads to his discovery of Jimmy's scam.

An open letter to public officials from local leaders
Mayor and council members,
Open letter to Rapid City and South Dakota state government and public health officials on the need to more rapidly implement strategies to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is an unprecedented time. We face the COVID-19 pandemic that will challenge every single one of us. While we appreciate the tireless efforts of those involved in managing this crisis, it falls short of what we feel will make a true impact.
Throughout the world, the most effective responses to the historic threat of COVID-19 have come from state and local governments. Using that history as evidence, we must shut down all unnecessary travel and utilize social distancing and self-isolation to stop the spread of the disease. Failing to heed warnings will lead to an exponential spread and will incapacitate our local healthcare system resulting in deaths.
We will face an overwhelming flood of patients requiring intensive care and ventilator support. Death rates for those over the age of 70 is over 8% and for those over 80, approaches 15%. Using even
conservative estimates, ventilator and intensive care beds will be exceeded. Supply lines are limited and will quickly be diminished. Waiting to act will kill more people while taking aggressive action now will help to limit the severity of this pandemic and allow the system to serve those most in need. Based on a recent Harvard study, the Rapid City area could experience 40,000 sick, 8000 hospitalized, and 400 requiring a ventilator (*we have fewer than 80 ventilators in Rapid City). Untold will die. -----‐------------------
We must protect those most vulnerable in our community.
Therefore, we the physicians of the Black Hills, advocate implementing all of the following:
  1. Self-isolate at home except for essential needs and practice social distancing;
  2. Stop non-essential travel: most importantly airline and public transportation;
  3. Close non-essential businesses: restaurants and other facilities that prepare and serve food (except for take-away), bars, salons, retail stores, clubs, gyms, schools, daycares, social events, and churches;
  4. Conserve medical supplies;
  5. Limit nonessential healthcare operations.
Crucial mitigation strategies, prompt intervention, and our remote location offer us a unique opportunity to stop the disease. We recognize that many of these interventions are already front of mind for our government; but our public officials also face competing priorities including concerns about the economic, political, and social impact of these measures.
The balance of those concerns is greatly outweighed by the health and safety risk facing our community and our responsibility to those most vulnerable among us. Now is the time to take further action. You must not hesitate; we need decisive action now

This is an unprecedented time. We face the COVID-19 pandemic that will challenge every single one of us. While we appreciate the tireless efforts of those involved in managing this crisis, it falls short of what we feel will make a true impact.
Throughout the world, the most effective responses to the historic threat of COVID-19 have come from state and local governments. Using that history as evidence, we must shut down all unnecessary travel and utilize social distancing and self-isolation to stop the spread of the disease. Failing to heed warnings will lead to an exponential spread and will incapacitate our local healthcare system resulting in deaths.
We will face an overwhelming flood of patients requiring intensive care and ventilator support. Death rates for those over the age of 70 is over 8% and for those over 80, approaches 15%. Using even
conservative estimates, ventilator and intensive care beds will be exceeded. Supply lines are limited and will quickly be diminished. Waiting to act will kill more people while taking aggressive action now will help to limit the severity of this pandemic and allow the system to serve those most in need. Based on a recent Harvard study, the Rapid City area could experience 40,000 sick, 8000 hospitalized, and 400 requiring a ventilator (*we have fewer than 80 ventilators in Rapid City). Untold will die. -----‐------------------
We must protect those most vulnerable in our community.
Therefore, we the physicians of the Black Hills, advocate implementing all of the following:
  1. Self-isolate at home except for essential needs and practice social distancing;
  2. Stop non-essential travel: most importantly airline and public transportation;
  3. Close non-essential businesses: restaurants and other facilities that prepare and serve food (except for take-away), bars, salons, retail stores, clubs, gyms, schools, daycares, social events, and churches;
  4. Conserve medical supplies;
  5. Limit nonessential healthcare operations.
Crucial mitigation strategies, prompt intervention, and our remote location offer us a unique opportunity to stop the disease. We recognize that many of these interventions are already front of mind for our government; but our public officials also face competing priorities including concerns about the economic, political, and social impact of these measures.
The balance of those concerns is greatly outweighed by the health and safety risk facing our community and our responsibility to those most vulnerable among us. Now is the time to take further action. You must not hesitate; we need decisive action now

2019.09.17 00:31 fractalfay Recap repost for those denied: Before the 90 Days, I love my sister cook so much

NOTE: This is a repost of the most recent recap, since it’s showing up as “removed” for some folks. I have no idea why; it doesn’t seem to be deleted. But, here it is.
Yessss Rebecca we are ready for your segment so very much. Zied selects a garment from his ill-fitting t-shirt collection for a day at the market with Rebecca. She is impressed by all this, from the plates of colorful spices, to the exotic olives and hearts on a string. A cat emerges from a spice plate to recommend a recently created pile of toxoplasmosis, and the cameraman hasn’t been this excited since Drascilla planted her diaper on the eggs.
Zied and Rebecca are going to meet Zied’s sister, Wiem, so Rebecca’s trying out her sulk/shame facial expression, because she’s going to need it. Wiem is cooking dishes we need to know more about. Can we take a timeout for some cooking show reporting please? No? Fuck you TLC!
“I love cook my sister so much,” Zied agrees.
Rebecca surrenders the spices to sister Wiem, because the spice must flow, while Zied scurries away to try and find a pair of pants that fits, so he’s gone a long, long time. In his absence Rebecca uses her Time Travel Ring ™ to go all the way back to high school, for this riveting exchange:
Wiem: Why do you love my brother?
Becky, Teen PI: (Looks at fingers) I dunno.
Wiem: Why does my brother have to sacrifice and not you?
Becky: I dunno. My kids, or something?
This somehow gets even worse over dinner, since Wiem smells weakness and likes to sprinkle it over her food before eating. Instead of offering retorts or indifference to Shame Quest, 2019, Rebecca recoils like a kicked dog. Dammit, I hate when people are bullied. Now I’m feeling sorry for her. Okay, fine. I’ve got you, Rebecca.
Wiem: How many times have you been married?
Me: Like, to men? On earth?
Wiem: How many partners have you had?
Me: How many fingers and toes do you have? Like, in your whole family, I mean.
Wiem: They are all bad?
Me: Not like Aladin is in bed, amirite Laura?
Wiem: What is the difference between my brother and your exes?
Me: Are we talking education level or penis size?
Wiem: I’m not convinced of your relationship.
Me: That’s okay, I’m still not convinced David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear, but it was on TV so I have to believe.
Wiem: Do you know I’m making catty remarks in a language you don’t understand?
Me: Do you know what I’m doing with my hands under the table?
Scene. Thank you, I’m a hit at Thanksgiving.
The next day Rebecca has a big secret to get off her chest, which is 90DF speak for something relatively minor that doesn’t really need to be brought up.
Rebecca: You know how I always ask permission to have a past?
Zied: Sssoooo nice.
Rebecca: And you know how lies are the foundation of any good relationship?
Zied: Sssso sexy.
Rebecca:I love you more than any other English-slithering person half my age.
Zied: I sssee you are ssso perfect.
Rebecca: I don’t want you to have a dramatic reaction, despite the dramatic build up to a dramatic story that I don’t even really have to share, but I need to, cause dramatic.
Zied: You are sssoo beautiful. Yesss. Ssso good.
Rebecca: I had a relationship with a woman. ARE YOU MAD?
Zied: Sssooo nice.
Rebecca: Are you mad now? Now? How bout now?
Zied: Yes, in the past so good.
As Shaun would say, let’s move on. Somewhere there’s a bar named O’Paddy’s Whiskey Tickler with a couple screaming at each other outside, and one of them isn’t wearing a shirt and is fighting a fence, while the other isn’t wearing pants and keeps taking pulls off an invisible beer and crying? Angela is here to explain the fight, because she is in it.
Angela is still angry that Michael failed to recall his full nautical history and renounce every interaction with a female since he left his mother’s body. He attempts to pacify her with a Coke, but if Kendall Jenner taught us anything, it’s that you’ve got to go with Pepsi if you want to make an empty plea for peace.
Angela takes a Darcey perfume bath, while Michael wakes from sleeping in his car with his final shred of dignity. Angela asks a poor defenseless concierge where she can fulfill more American traveler cliches, and she’s directed to an unassuming hair salon up the street. When she leaves the hotel Michael tries to talk to her, which kicks off The Great Chase, best observed with the theme from Beverly Hillbillies playing in the background. He says wait, she says nope; he says he’ll go get the car, she says okay, then bolts the minute his back is turned; he figures this out, but not before she’s out of sight, and it’s unclear which direction she went. This goes on for several minutes, is totally fake, and I still give it an 8 on the 90DF scale.
Inside the salon Angela requests a hairstyle called “white lady in the Caribbean” and tells the shop owner that she’s engaged to a Nigerian man. The shop owner responds, “I married a Nigerian man, too.” Angela misses this joke, which happens when you’re 100% focused on manufactured drama. “Can I unload my problems on you? You’re a stranger, which means you don’t have a restraining order against me yet,” begins Angela’s tale of romantic woe.
Note to folks who work in salons and barbershops: if 90DF calls and asks to plot a scene there, for the love of God, don’t start filming until I get there.
In desperation, Michael decides to run a repeat on the cake apology, so that the storyline can accelerate from Sally Jesse Raphael to Jerry Springer with the security guard Steve.
“I feel like he’s manipulating me with cake,” Angela says, before deciding that half-done hair is best highlighted by a hasty ratty ponytail. The stylist stifles her scream. Then Angela does exactly what you expect her to do, which is pie Michael with a cake. That’s one too many desserts. Move on, Michael. Never trust a woman who wastes baked goods, or fouls a cake with violence.
Over on the other side of crazy, Darcey is heading to Albania to throw her dank vacation away for more reasons to cry. On the way to the airport, Darcy primes Tom about Stacey and Florian: “He proposed to her the first trip, and this is my first trip, sooo OMG IS THAT A PROPOSAL?”
After they land, Stacey sends a text message letting Darcy know she plans to humiliate her. Darcey needs the right shoe for this, so she spreads her luggage out like a sidewalk trunk show. As Tom marvels at the emphasis on footwear for a meal taking place while sitting down, Darcy reminisces on Jesse’s squire haircut, which led to her giving a fuck what her sister thinks. Despite Stacey’s insistence on meeting at a restaurant and not the hotel, Stacey is late, so Tom moves from pink drinks to red, which is an expression of British rage, along with pursing lips and insisting you’re fine.
40 minutes later, around the time most of us would have bounced, Darcey is making apology expressions at Tom when Smug Stacey saunters in with her Albanian boytoy and Darcey’s Thursday outfit. Tom is unimpressed and takes his white gloves off, and is happy to point out that this isn’t Downton Fucking Abbey, and he’s not afraid to, as they say on Love Island, “take the piss.”
He pulls his rage ripcord with: “Don’t mind that I’ve sat here for like nine hours waiting!” Oh wait, that was the passive-aggressive zipline, so I guess this isn’t a Guy Ritchie movie either.
In fairness to Tom, it is customary to apologize when you’re obnoxiously late, but Smug Stacey did that shit on purpose. When you have siblings, you learn that some people are strategists, some rule by brute force, and some play dead. Stacey opts for condescension and blanket manipulation. I kind of admire that in a serial killer.
“Four years ago you started your cute little vision board with all your adorable tries at life, and it’s almost sort of trying to come true. Remember that Prince Charming ambition you had?” says Smug Stacey.
Darcy cries: “Why do you always wrap curses in compliments like a southern lady sipping sweet tea?”
“Bless your heart,” retorts Stacey, sipping her glass of blood.
“Did somebody say southern? TOO MANY WIMMIN, MICHAEL!” Angela, get out of here.
Later, Darcey and Stacey are taking their rivalry all the way to the set of Mean Girls 65: Social Security. Snarling at each other from across the van, Darcy isolates a riveting topic to explore and square their respective mates for battle.
“Would you fight for me,” Darcy purrs at Tom from eighth grade.
“I’ve never fought for a woman,” replies Tom from thrice-divorced 40, his ankle still smarting from his last ass-beating from Darcey.
“Would YOU fight for me?” Smugs Stacy, tapping out the appropriate response in Morse code with a Maleficent nail.
“I would chew a strangers balls before the eye gouge, my love,” responds Florian.
The rivalry van takes them to a lovely spot in Albania: a bridge with some water that was probably painted by Thomas Kincaid. Tom says he understands why Florian thought it was a good place to propose. Big mistake, Tom. You know you can’t say that word when Darcy is within a hundred miles. Lots of other exciting stuff happens, like Darcey and Stacey bitching about each other’s hair, and talking about the plastic surgeon and midlife crisis they have in common.
Stacey: I’m not trying to one-up you when I one up you.
Darcey: Yes you are a one-upper!
Tom: I’m British.
Darcey: Cries.
Florian: It’s good.
Tom: If I pick you up in a manly fashion, can this be over?
Shaun: Let’s move on.
Tim’s manicured eyebrows are back to make us sleepy, as he daydreams about his no-sex baby with Jeniffer. He swears he hasn’t been drunk-doused before, but I think he’s familiar with the cold soak of a rage baptism. His plans for recovering from the drink toss includes meeting Jennifer and Violet on a playground to talk about his Columbian girlfriend punch card. He flashes back to the last girlfriend, when his hair was bleach blonde and his private plane was tiny, and when Sears Portrait Studio still offered the deluxe package with two 8X10s. Jennifer and Tim are both willing to move forward to new portraits, so they proceed to function as a tourism brochure for Columbia, with spectacular views of endless green country, and another opportunity for Jennifer to call Tim a baby. Jennifer considers that they are both broken from the past, and don’t know how to love each other. What’s wisdom doing on this show?
Enter Avery to save us from smart! At the hotel room, Avery’s mom Terri bounces Omar so she can try to find the functioning part of her daughter’s brain. “There’s got to be something in there besides Twilight novels,” Terri prays. But Avery knows that if she doesn’t make this hasty decision, she’ll never find another way to say “bite me” to her mom.
“If he wanted somebody to get a visa, he could have got somebody to get a visa,” Captain Self-Awareness blurts.
“HE DID GET SOMEBODY!” Why fire one shot Terri, when you’re holding an AK-57?
“Well WE don’t have to live in America,” Avery fires back. “Later when I tell you I’m moving to Syria, you’ll think you drove me to this. Ha!”
Terri pushes Avery to consider that Omar’s career as an almost-periodontist will not guarantee safe passage, but Avery won’t stand for all this rational thought in her Sweet Valley High novel. She storms out into the hotel wild and knocks on his door, saying, “Habibi!” This means we’re definitely not going to see him again until next episode.
Avery insists she’s unconcerned by this and would be fine living in Lebanon (which is no longer taking Syrian refugees) or fine living in Malaysia (where Syrian refugees are not welcome) or Dubai (might have a shot with that one). Avery continues to think the “risk” Terri is referencing is that he’s using her, because she did not bring the Google with her in that tiny purse.
Are you wondering about Fake Cesar? Me neither, but the producers need to milk their money’s worth out of this non-plot. Maria is a no-show, and finally ends her ruse relationship via phone call. Fake Cesar displays an impressive level of rehearsed denial, while Fake Maria asserts that she wants out of this plot line. She dismisses his pretend financial sacrifice as his problem, and Cesar tries to reroute towards emotional blackmail. Maria reads the part of the script where she talks about meeting in the next life or something, and Cesar continues his involved relationship with the producers.
In Kenya, Akinyi is crying, because her brother said something bad about Benji. Was it about the laugh? You can tell us if it was about the laugh. After learning Fidel was talking trash, Benji could have gone to Fidel and asked what happened. The direct approach is risky, but standing there like melting butter isn’t exactly working out. “I’ll just accept blame and wait for change,” Ben mumbles, marbles rolling out of his mouth.
Benji retreats to Akinyi’s brother’s house, where he recreates a scene from The Omen, complete with heavily bookmarked hymnal and pasty humans rocking back and forth. Note to Christians: if you choose to rock a hymn alone in your future family’s house, maybe pick something with fewer references to the blood of Jesus.
Akinyi texts him and asks him to meet her downstairs. She is extremely upset, and tells Benji that her brother told her that she brought shame to the family, and that’s why her father didn’t show up. After she’s done talking, he tries to force her to talk more, and like many people who don’t fucking listen, Benji insists that she needs to “learn to communicate better.” There is nothing mysterious about what she communicated. She said: 1.) this happened, and 2.) I am upset, and don’t want to talk about it anymore. If you force another person to talk when they don’t want to, Benji, then YOU have the communication problem. LET’S MOVE ON, SHAUN.
Next week, Darcy is given full clinger status by Tom (which is gleefully celebrated by Stacey), Rebecca’s PI friend cracks the case, Angela continues to pretend to break up with Michael, and Benji fears that Akinyi’s dad has more Holy Spirit than he does.

These Are the Best Restaurants in Every State
by Mary Hanbury / BI via TIME
URL: http://ift.tt/2wjyANr
The US has no shortage of outstanding restaurants that serve everything from flavor-packed amuse-bouches to hand-crafted desserts.
To find the best one that each state (and Washington, DC) has to offer, we sifted through our list of the best restaurants in America, the James Beard award nominations, expert reviews, and local recommendations, paying particular attention to fine-dining establishments.
It wasn’t always what we expected. Turns out, if you’re in need of some hearty food and a menu of vodkas, Portland, Oregon, has one of the best Russian restaurants out there.
Consider this your personal guide to the very best places to eat in your own state.

ALABAMA: Highlands Bar and Grill

Location: Birmingham
Chef: Frank and Pardis Stitt
Savory dishes and impeccable service have made Highlands Bar and Grill a favorite in Birmingham since it first opened its doors in 1982.
The iconic spot shifts its menu daily to incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients — think summers filled with okra soft-shell crab and winters of root vegetables and venison — that merge French techniques with Southern flavors.

ALASKA: Marx Bros. Cafe

Location: Anchorage
Chef: Jack Amon
Freshness is a priority at the Marx Bros. Cafe, where chef Jack Amon updates the menu nightly to reflect fresh seafood offerings. Enjoy creative dishes such as tea-smoked duck or Neapolitan seafood mousse, and be sure to pair each with a glass of wine from the cafe’s extensive list.

ARIZONA: Pizzeria Bianco

Location: Phoenix
Chef: Chris Bianco
At Pizzeria Bianco, James Beard award-winning chef Chris Bianco uses only the freshest ingredients, including Sicilian oregano and homemade mozzarella, to concoct simple yet flavorful pies. More than just a neighborhood pizza joint, this restaurant typically draws an hours-long wait.

ARKANSAS: One Eleven at the Capital

Location: Little Rock
Chef: Joel Antunes
A former James Beard award semifinalist for best new restaurant, One Eleven at the Capital prides itself on superb service and artisanal food, with dishes that include seared diver scallops with shiitake mushrooms and a lamb shank with roasted potatoes.

Though the proprietors might not be native Hawaiians, they aim to showcase traditional Polynesian dishes and fresh local fish at Mama’s Fish House, so named to distinguish it from Maui’s abundant steakhouses.

IDAHO: The Modern

Milktooth was voted one of the best restaurants in the US by Eater in 2016. Owner and chef Jonathan Brooks channeled his energy into perfecting the art of daytime cuisine; the restaurant only serves breakfast and lunch.

The family also runs a store nearby, selling take-out soups, stews, and desserts that are offered at the restaurant.

KENTUCKY: Heirloom

Wolf, a three-time finalist for the James Beard Foundation’s award for Best Chef in the Mid-Atlantic region, tweaks the menu daily to integrate only the freshest ingredients.

MASSACHUSETTS: The Table at Season To Taste

Location: Cambridge
Chef: Carl Dooley
This 20-seat restaurant feels as intimate as a private chef’s table, hence the name.

Chef: Aramis Jones
According to Foursquare analysis, Roast is the best steakhouse in the state of Michigan. It’s considered a carnivore’s dream and offers several different cuts of dry-aged beef with an extensive array of sides.

MINNESOTA: Spoon and Stable

MONTANA: Lucca’s

Location: Helena

NEW HAMPSHIRE: Moxy

Location: Portsmouth
Chef: Matt Louis
Whenever Chef Matt Louis adds a new “modern American tapas” dish to the menu at Moxy, it must do three things: be inspired by New England culinary tradition, highlight local food, and have a modern twist.

NEW JERSEY: The Frog and The Peach

Location: New Brunswick

With Chef Patrick O’Connell at the helm, what started as a simple country inn in a former garage in 1978 has grown into a culinary destination.

WASHINGTON, DC: minibar by José Andrés

Location: Washington, DC
Chef: José Andrés
Minibar is all about pushing the boundaries of what food should be. Each dish seeks to surprise in its presentation, like “This is Not Carrot Cake,” a mound of gingerbread with sorbet molded to look like carrots growing out of it, and another dish that requires using a spoon made out of parmesan.
You can dine either at one of the two six-seat Chef’s Counters or the even more private José’s Table, but it’ll set you back quite a bit — prepaid tickets cost $275 per person for a seat at the counter, while it costs $565 per person for the table.

Questions Answers
Do you have medical insurance? Thats recognized worldwide? If you've had a couple situations where you needed medical attention abroad, how did you handle it logistically and money-wise? Thanks. I have medical insurance, and it applies to most international settings, especially catastrophic care and evacuation.
But, interestingly enough, the easiest option for medical care overseas is just to pay locally, since it's usually dirt cheap. Seriously, few places in the world are as insanely expensive when it comes to health care. That's why people fly overseas for medical treatment, since they can get surgery AND a recovery vacation for much less than the price of the surgery in the US.
When I had giardia in India the doctor and medicine cost me $1.35. I got an all-day checkup (treadmill cardio, ultrasound, body fluids -- everything you could possibly check) at a first rate hospital in Bangkok for less than $300. A couple years ago I got sick in Paris and avoided the doctor for a week because I was in this American mindset of avoiding the doctor at all costs. When I finally gave in and visited the French doctor, the consultation and medicine together cost me $60.
So the best answer is to take out catastrophic insurance, but may out of pocket for 95% of your medical expenses, since they're so cheap overseas.
I've always found that a smile gets you further than any knowledge of the local language. I agree that a smile can get you a long way in a place where you might not speak the language. As does general good will, and a willingness to speak even a half-dozen phrases of the local language. People like it when you try.
So now to my question: The last decade+ has seen a lot of changes in the political climate, especially the view of Americans. Have you noticed a tangible change in the way Americans are viewed overseas in the last decade? Are we still kinda of funny bumblefucks, or are we now seen as more dangerous?
That's great to hear, Rolf! Thank you so much! My experiences were pretty much universally positive (Serbian border guards notwithstanding), and it is good to hear that life on the ground continues pretty much as it has. Politicians and the news media do enjoy scaring their constituencies, don't they? :-) Indeed, fear sells. And it's amazing how travel can become a process of un-learning that fear. It's good to be cautious on the road, of course, but it's amazing how safe travel can be, even in countries that are supposedly dangerous.
Hey Rolf!! Huge fan. Thank you so much for doing the AMA. My question is this-- Is there anything you wrote in Vagabonding that you no longer believe or is no longer relevant? Anything you wish you included? Well I just revisited the book in earnest when I was reciting it for the audio edition, and I'm happy to say that it still resonates true for me. I took out a details alluding to bygone travel technologies (post restante, CD-ROMs, etc), but the core advice is as relevant as ever.
Do you think independent traveling is feasible economically for most people and if so how? Independent travel is feasible for most anyone in the developed world. As much as economics it's about mindset -- about living more simply and letting the savings pay off in free time. It also helps to travel in less expensive parts of the world. There are parts of Asia and South America and the Middle East where you can travel full-time for much less than it costs to live day to day live in an American city.
I am curious as to your thoughts on the seeming race to acquire stamps in passports. I see daily things such as "youngest to go to every country". This goes against a lot of the compulsions we have as Americans, of course, but being "efficient" isnt necessarily the best way to experience distant lands. Instead just wander, get lost, slow don't, find a place you love and stay there until you can't stand it any more. Play games with your journey and keep learning. This is way better than collecting passport stamps.
So, therefore, my question is, how do you balance wanting to see a lot, as well as truly see where you are? How do you balance that? The best way to combat this (and I fight these urges myself, all the time!) is to force yourself to slow down. Don't go to Europe for two months to see 10 countries; go to Europe for two months to see one country. Don't travel the world for a year to see all the continents; travel for a year in one continent (or even better, a part of that continent, since even a portion of a country has more than you can experience in a year).
How many total years have you been vagabonding ? Do you meet travelers whom have been gone too long and have lost perspective? I've been vagabonding in various degrees since 1994, first in North America, and later in Asia and points beyond. The longest full-time vagabonding stint went just short of three years. Since then I've done a mix of a few months traveling, a few months at home. Everyone does this a little bit differently. Some people are satisfied after a couple months on the road, other people keep going to 5 years or more. The secret is to keep it personal. I've met plenty of travelers who've gone on too long -- i.e. to the point where it's less fun, and kind of "samey" -- and most of them are still at it because they keep comparing themselves to other travelers. Don't compare yourself to other travelers; find what works for you, push your own comfort zones, and travel on your own terms.
I've traveled for periods up to three months, and it's still not enough for me. I feel like I need to be gone much longer to experience everything I want to. What would you suggest for me as a way to sustain this sort of lifestyle? Say I want to visit some countries in southeast Asia (which I do). If I want to be gone for years on end, how can I make this happen? Do I really need to stay at my current job for years saving up? I feel like it's such a waste of my life. Staying at home and saving up is one option. Another is to find work overseas. I did teaching for a couple years in Korea, and it was a key experience for me, one that taught me a lot about other cultures and earned me some money to boot.

No luggage. can you explain this some more? My trip around the world with no luggage was a stunt and an experiment -- was it was also a vivid lesson in how little you need to pack when you travel to the far side of the earth. I basically had some small toiletries and light change of clothes in my pockets, and I rarely found myself wanting more. I laptop would have been nice, I guess, but that's mainly because I was blogging the trip in real time on my iPod.
What are the most typical items people pack that they probably don't need to? So to your question, most people pack too many changes of clothes, too many gadgets and travel trinkets that they rarely use. I say pack enough to keep yourself clothed for a few days, plus some toiletries and maybe a smart phone with some books on it. Everything else you don't need, or you can find en route. Try it sometime. People don't believe me when I say it's this simple, but -- unless you're a really high-maintenance person -- it is.
Reading your book inspired me to take a great 9 month trip around the world. A good portion was in Southeast Asia. When I took the trip I wanted to get traveling out of my system, since I never had before. Now that I'm back, all I want to do is go on another big trip. Thanks for a great read. What are you up to these days? Any upcoming big adventures? I know that feeling exactly. When I was 23 I traveled North America for 8 months, living out of a van and having these great adventures. That's been almost two decades now, and in many ways I haven't fully come home from that trip.
Hi Rolf! I'm a 24-year-old writer, traveler and soon-to-be expat. Totally fascinated by what you do - can you share what your most valuable experience has been in terms of developing and advancing your travel writing career? The most valuable experience was most certainly failure! Seriously. Failure can teach you a lot. For me, it was trying to write a travel book about traveling across the USA in my early 20s. I never could interest agents or publishers in it (and, looking at the writing years later, I can see why), but I learned so much how writing and reportage, how to hone your voice and how to keep the audience interested. The failure of that book depressed me, but I dusted off, moved to Korea, and kept traveling and writing. Eventually that writing found success, and once the success began in small doses, my career grew quickly.
In a way, that early failure was a better education than any graduate school could have provided.
Did you teach English when you moved to Korea? I've been wanting to move there for a while now and can't seem to find any way to do it besides English teaching which I'm neither qualified for or interested in doing. Yes I taught English there. I enjoyed it, ultimately, but it's not the kind of thing to do if you're not interested in it.
Advice for a 23 year old in a job he hates that would love to travel the world, but has no savings and is not sure the first step? The first step is to decide you're going to do it. Stop making excuses, start saving money, start looping at maps and making plans. Even if you don't physically leave your home for another couple of years, vagabonding starts the moment you start altering your lifestyle in such a way (simplifying, saving money) that makes the freedom to travel possible. I went through the same process -- I didn't even have a passport till I was 25, so there, plenty of time for you.
Hi Rolf—huge congrats on hitting the Amazon bestsellers list, the Tim Ferriss marketing machine seems to be firing on all cylinders! I've got four questions for you (sorry to be greedy): I love that your approach to travel is less about pre-planning activities and more about adopting a certain state of mind, for example you suggested that the simple willingness to improvise whilst travelling is more vital, in the long run, than research. How do you increase the odds of finding something interesting or worth writing about ahead of time? Do you have any tips for maximising these serendipitous experiences whilst on the road? In your 'Indie Travel Manifesto', one of the most popular topics was 'Options over possessions'—what sparked your own decision to stop focusing on accumulating more stuff and instead accumulate life experiences? Reading ‘Marco Polo Didn’t Go There’, I laughed hard when I read that many of your 'travel stories begin as an attempt to impress pretty women’! For my benefit the benefit of any unattached vagabonders, where in the world have you had the most success charming beautiful women? As for my decision to live for experiences instead of things, it started when I was younger and didn't have many things. As I got older I realized that experiences were more valuable to me than the short-term rush I got from buying "stuff." Since then I've tried to balance my life in favor of time-wealth -- that is, spending time and money in such as way that it pays out in life experiences. Thanks for reading -- I can tell you know my work well. And I was stoked to see Vagabonding up on the bestseller list, thanks to Tim!
Did you have the idea of writing a book before you started traveling, or after? Or were you approached by a publisher with the idea? How long did it take to write? The idea for Vagabonding actually came from a page on my website, with a Random House editor found in the summer of 2001 and suggested I expand into a book. I may have been one of the earliest people to land a travel book contract from my own website. Here's the back-story: At the time I was traveling full-time in Asia and Europe and the Middle East, writing a biweekly column of my tales for Salon.com. A lot of people would writing in asking how I was able to travel for so long, and eventually I posted the advice at RolfPotts.com. My advice tended to have a philosophical-existential bent, and I think that's what captured the attention of Random House. The book ended up having a lot of concrete and practical travel advice, but it remained a philosophical book at its core. It took 8 months to write, amid other, shorter writing assignments. I was living in Thailand at the time.
How did you get introduced to Tim Ferriss? That seems like an interesting connection. How did you go about 'partnering' for this launch? Tim Ferriss read my book Vagabonding many years ago, and he contacted me when he was writing The Four Hour Work Week. I actually introduced him to my agent, who turned the 4HWW down! (She's no longer my agent.) Since then Tim and I have stayed in touch. The audiobook partnership was his idea. Vagabonding inspired the travels that led to his books, so he wanted to help it find a wider audience. I thank him for that!
Rolf, I read your book before leaving on a one-way ticket to South America. Thanks for writing it (and the Marco Polo)! Glad to enjoyed my books! The thing about travel that inspires me is that it's a continual source of surprise and wonder and raw experience. Even if the experiences are difficult, I feel like I'm alive and connected to my environment in ways that can be hard to achieve amid the habit-driven rhythms of home. I don't have a single favorite highlight -- there are too many! One of my favorites, I guess, was the first step of my first vagabonding trip around North America when I was 23. I was so grateful to be doing it, so excited at the possibilities. The journey hasn't let me down!
Question: What is your favorite highlight of your travels? and 2: What is it about travelling that inspires you?
Hey Rolf, if you had to make a quick estimate, what would you ballpark the cost of a vagabonding lifestyle (per week or month) in USD in different parts of the world? Latin America? South Asia? Middle East? Very curious, as I have about a year with which to do whatever I want. Ballparking is really tough because everyone has a different travel sensibility. In terms of cheapness, South Asia will be the cheapest, followed by the Middle East and Latin America. They're all a lot cheaper than North America or Europe. Given a choice I'd probably do Asia -- you can really stretch a dollar there -- though the Middle East is amazing and cheap as well.
What is your absolute favorite travel story? I love David Foster Wallace's "Shipping Out", which is a hilarious recounting of his experience on a cruise ship. It has nothing to do with vagabonding, but it's a brilliant example of a writer evoking a certain sense of place/experience at an obsessive level.
ALSO. Who is your favorite travel writer other than yourself? As for writers, I've always been a fan of Tim Cahill, Paul Theroux, Pico Iyer. Pico's "Video Night in Kathmandu" is one of my early favorites. Patrick Leigh Fermor's "Time of Gifts" is amazing. There are a lot of good women travel writers out there too, from Sara Wheeler and Susan Orlean back to Freya Stark and Rebecca West.
Book recommendations? I could go on at length about this. Happy to make more recommendations if need be!
What parts? Do you mean cheap parts of the world? You'll get a sense for this in a day of online research (and Tim Leffel has a terrific book called "World's Cheapest Destinations). Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, parts of Latin America will come up again and again as you look for inexpensive destinations.
But it's hard to internalize until you actually do it. If in doubt go to, say, Thailand for a couple weeks/months and wander around. Experiencing it first hand is the best way to appreciate it -- and the lessons you learn there can be applied in many other parts of the world.
I waved at you last week in the street. Why didn't you wave back?!?!?! What were you doing at the Lutheran church in Assaria, Kansas?
Loved the book. I read the first half before I left on my 10 month trip, and then read second half after I started, and if I can remember, I left the paperback copy of it in a hostel in Krakow :) Link to pariswritingworkshop.com
Are you still teaching the travel writing course in Paris? It's an amazing, intensive month of writing, and worth it if you can afford it.
Hey! Great book...when going to a new country or city what do you plan to get out of it? Or do you just chill, relax, and take it as it comes? I take it as it comes. I'm actually a proponent of pre-trip research and planning -- but I'm an even bigger proponent of throwing out all that planning once you discover something unexpected and amazing. Research your possibilities on the road, not your destiny; don't just take a trip, let it take you.
If you could only live in 1 city for the rest of your life, which city would it be? Are there any cities you have no desire to return to? Why? This is a hard question, in part because so many cities are amazing (New York, Paris, Bangkok, Cairo, Jerusalem, I could go on) -- but also because I'm not fully a city person. I don't know if I could live full time in the city because I love country life as well.
Rolf- I really enjoy your books. Do you spend much time back in Kansas these days? I am also from rural Kansas, but have managed to visit 60 some countries. I would think it would be hard to come back to the farm for very long after living on the road. Awesome! You don't always meet many Kansans on the road. I didn't grow up in rural Kansas -- I grew up in Wichita -- but interestingly enough I now have a house in rural Saline County. I going back there (and in fact I am there right now). An advantage of Kansas -- or a similar part of the country -- is that it's cheap and quiet to live here, a good place to save money and get writing done between journeys.
Do you prefer to drink African elephant shit tea, or Asian elephant shit tea? Good eye -- you know my oeuvre well!
I've only had African elephant shit tea. And, for the most part, it tasted like shit. So I confess I'm not actively seeking to try the Asian variety!
Hey Rolf! Just read your book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm taking my first solo trip this summer for three months and your book really helped encourage me to travel before I graduate university. Vagabonding was really concise but the only thing I feel may now be outdated was the topic of using internet cafes to communicate with couchsurfing hosts/communicate home. Are internet cafes still a big thing in the world now that essentially everyone in first world nations carries a smartphone? Glad you liked the book!
You still find internet cafes, especially in the developing world, but you're right that it's often easier in the developed world to use a smartphone or find wireless for your laptop. This is great, so long as you can learn to lay off the connectivity and enjoy the place you're visiting.
Hi, I'm planning a trip to Europe (from the Uk) next summer, via motorbike and taking a tent to camp out wild for quite a bit, and finding hostels and work or a bed type of schemes, not sure how long or where I will go just yet. What would you're must do/see/experience be? What would you're must have item be? Do you have any advice for travel writing? For inspiration read Patrick Leigh Fermor's "A Time of Gifts". He made that journey in the 1930s, but it's still inspiring -- and it's a lot like what you're aiming for. And so long as you travel slow, the destinations and experiences will reveal themselves as you go. Good luck!
What's a unique place to go to that most people wouldn't think of? I don't care if it's nice. Just safe. And friendly to drinkers. The Great Plains and Upper Midwest of the USA! Seriously, people never think to get off the beaten path in America. But these areas are safe and friendly and by god people aren't afraid to drink with you there.
Hi Rolf, what is the number 1 thing to be aware of when independently traveling? Slow down. Too many people try to do too much at once. If you can learn to slow down at the outset, your entire journey will improve exponentially.
The corollary to this is not to micromanage your itinerary, and be willing to go in new directions as serendipity presents itself.
Hey, just read Vagabonding this year, very interesting read to say the least. I was wondering, if you had any favorite travel shows? What is your opinion about "An idiot abroad" Sorry cannot come up with any good really questions. Anthony Bourdain does a nice job of evoking a sense of authenticity on this travel shows, but even then he does at a "meta" level, constantly remarking on the artifice of television. I haven't seen the Pilkington show, but I know about it. Travel TV is OK, but the actual act of travel is exponentially better, which is why I try and encourage people to make their travel dreams happen sooner rather than later.
Have you ever met any women, particularly women of color, who do this as well? Has their experience differed from yours? If I'm not mistaken, Pang, who has a great post at the top of this page, is a WOC. She shared her travel blog above: Link to lifeofpang.tumblr.com
I dedicate several pages of Vagabonding to female travel issues, but to be honest I've met women as nearly as often as men on the vagabonding road. Women from places like Germany and Israel and New Zealand don't seem to be as intimidated by the prospect as many American women I've talked with (America seems to have more cultural anxieties about women in that way). Yet there are tons of American women out on the road too. My friend Lavinia Spalding edits a yearly anthology called "Best Women's Travel Writing," which is a great place to read about some of their tales.
As for women of color, you see them as much as any middle-class American demographic on the road, though interestingly you tend to see African-American women more in the Caribbean and African, Asian-American women in Asia, and so on. This makes sense, I guess, since there's a degree of comfort in traveling where people look like you, but going counterintuitive can be fun too. A Black American woman can get a lot of friendly curiosity in a place like Asia, and an Asian-American woman might find Latin America more comfortable than parts of Asia (where people will assume she can speak local languages and know local norms and get confused when she doesn't).
As for how female travel experiences differ, naturally a woman has to take more precautions on the road (I talk about this in Vagabonding), since even a friendly American "hello" can give men in some cultures the wrong idea. But women also have more opportunities. In the Middle East I never got to see much of the private life of Arab women, but my female fellow travelers had access to both male and female environments in that part of the world.
Hi Rolf, I'm planning a trip this spring and I want to range pretty far from the USA. Where should I go that is difficult to get to without an extended amount of time? (I suspect this is going to be my last long-term trip for a long time). I expect to spend approximately 4 months abroad. Well I'm a big fan of Southeast Asia. Other people might recommend South America or Africa (which are great) but in my mind its hard to beat wandering through Thailand and Burma and Laos and Cambodia or Indonesia. India is terrific too. All those places have their challenges, but they are inexpensive, welcoming, amazing destinations.
How much money does your average trip cost? Depends on how and where you travel? Parts of Asia can be experienced for $1000 a month; parts of Europe for as much as 4 or 5 times that.
Please, please answer this question! I hope it's not to late! So, my husband and I have become incredibly agitated with America and would like to travel, problem is...we have a child, he's 7 now and would be about 8 or 9 by the time we plan on taking off on our adventure. Is this feasible to vagabond around with a child? Let me lay some roots for you before people start freaking out, I am a decent of the Roma people (known to most as gypsies), I don't plan on buying a RV and traveling the way most people see and think of UK gypsies. I'm simply feeding my restless soul, we plan on homeschooling while we are traveling, mostly in math because we feel our son will learn so much about the world and himself on our journeys. Trust me, we will make sure he is prepared for college if he chooses to go that route. So OP, is this insane of us or doable? We would probably settle for bits of time but never with the intention of staying more than 9 months to a year before moving on again. We will be on a budget and going with the cheapest options available so yeah, our kid might have to tough it out at some places before he gets used to it. He's pretty damn laid back and I actually think he would suit the lifestyle well until he gets older and maybe needs more regular social situations and friends, at that point we would settle for him if he wanted. We are all about family but damn if I want my kid to grow up like every other American sheep and I include myself in that catagory, I feel like we have this amazing opportunity to teach him so much more by traveling. TL;DR Husband and I want to travel cheap with an 8 year old...is this doable?

I am on SSI, which gives me a budget of $700 per month. Is it possible to travel around in so little? It's really a matter of where you go, and how disciplined you are with lifestyle simplicity. $700 per month isn't much, but you could probably live on this in parts of Asia, like India and Indonesia. Especially if you stay in one place and cook at home. I know a lot of people who've retired to warm, inexpensive parts of the world and live quite comfortably there.
Heyo I did the No Baggage Challenge across India in a Rickshaw. Just saying hi! Can confirm it's absolutely the way to go. Though when you fly everyone thinks you're a little shady. "30 Days, no checked bags, no hand baggage? I see. Well you've been randomly selected for a secondary screening." Awesome! Most everyone I've met who's tried the no-luggage thing has enjoyed it.
You didn't have a towel? Not on the no-baggage trip. Hotels and hostels and guesthouses tend to have towels. Even when vagabonding I don't take a towel. If I crash at a place that doesn't provide one, I use a t-shirt, or drip-dry.
If you had to take 3 books with you on a year journey around the world, what 3 books would you take? Too tough to answer! And in the age of ebooks it's no longer an issue. I always like to go back to the classics, though, from The Bible to Shakespeare.
Oh hey, I like that book. Where you traveling now? I'm at home at the moment, at my beloved cabin in Kansas. Was in Europe not to long ago; headed to Mexico and points beyond later this month.
Did you speak much Thai when trying to sneak onto the set of The Beach? Did that affect the project? I never really understood why your boat driver wasn't so into until I finally went to Thailand and experienced Thai culture.. I was fairly new to Thailand at the time, and my Thai was very limited. Which of course contributed to the whole misadventure of my story "Storming 'The Beach'" (which eventually became the lead story in my second book, Marco Polo Didn't Go There).
I'm sure this is a tough one to answer, but do you have a favorite city or place that you stayed? Any good stories from that part of your trip? Tough question! I answered a part of this above. And of course my best stories (and the stories behind those stories) can be found in my second book, Marco Polo Didn't Go There. A lot of other good stories are linked from my website, RolfPotts.com.
So.. how do you go on and about to travel without luggage? Link to rtwblog.com
Hola Rolf. Old acquaintance in LA here. What are you working on now? Teaching a class at Yale, working on some new book ideas, dreaming of more journeys!
As someone who wants to both write and travel in the future, do you have any advice? Link to www.rolfpotts.com
I've been writing for a few years but its still only a small hobby. And traveling the country, USA, and eventually most of the world has been a huge passion of mine. I'm only 18 years old, currently in college, and feeling like this place just isn't for me. Link to pariswritingworkshop.com
Any advice on writing, travel, or just life in general you could give? As for travel advice, start with my book Vagabonding. It's perfect for someone in your situation.
Hi Rolf! I'm about halfway through your book and my wanderlust increases at every page! Glad you're enjoying the book! As I've said in other posts here I don't really have a list of favorites, since I love so many places. I'd say you can't go wrong in Southeast Asia, or the Andes, or the Middle East.
I'm making a list of places to explore so, what would your top 5 favorite places visited be so far? I know those are broad suggestions, but I think once you show up and start wandering your favorite parts of these places will reveal themselves.
Howdy. I have done some basic Hitch-hiking (the country of Croatia), and a bit of writing as well (nothing good)...I turned in my travel bug for an office cubical and a job. I spend 99% of my day thinking about just packing up and leaving again. I am in great shape to do any sort of traveling, I just would like to do it in a similar way to you. Do you have any suggestions for me? Well of course Vagabonding is a book-length collection of suggestions for this kind of thing.
But you might try working overseas, or going the digital nomad route. It takes a little risk at the outset, but the payoff of working and living overseas is great. I think everyone needs an "expat" phase of life at some point.
Is there anyway that I could interview with you? Maybe you could find a project of some sort that could use a pair of shoes like mine. I often do interviews via the contact address on my website. But again I think my book will go a long way toward answering your questions!
