1. In “4 Days Out,” the second episode of Season 2, Jesse asks Walt if he’s going to build a robot to save them from being stuck in the desert.

2. Throughout the show, Jesse is almost always dragged along somewhere against his will. In “Felina,” though, you see him finally in control of his life.

10. And another very well-known visual reference: Walt’s 50th birthday celebrated with a plate made of veggie bacon, courtesy of Skyler. Walt’s 52nd birthday meal, made with real bacon, eaten all alone.
