[DOG BARKING IN DISTANCE]
Let there be light.
And then there was light.
Will you look at this...
That's where your mom used to work.
Right back there, doin' the books.
Hey, remember when we used to ditch fourth come in the back door?
Tell your folks it was a free period.
O'Dell's algebra two.
[LAUGHING] Mr. o'Dell.
Man, that guy was a butthole.
And your mom, you know, I think she knew we were skipping, but she'd always stop what she was doing and gimme a pack of little Debbie's. Ahh.
Think all those little Debbie's put them out of business.
Hey, how'd you get up there when you were a kid?
Couple of milk crates, you know?
[SNIFFLES] All right.
No. No. No. Nope.
[INHALES SHARPLY] Boom.
Indian head penny. All right?
That's worth about three bucks.
We Polish it up, run the coin game...
Nice. We get 150 bucks, easy.
We got a $110 for a plain vanilla half dollar.
This... this is actually rare.
I mean, you can see it.
$300, easy. Oh, $300?
Me likey. Yeah.
Now you're gonna tell me what your coin collection was doin' up there.
It's a long story.
Um... Let's get outta here.
[SIREN WAILS, FLASHLIGHT CLICKS]
[DOG BARKING IN DISTANCE]
All right. Now. Let's hit it.
No, there might be another one.
What's the deal with the coins?
[INHALES SHARPLY] I was what?
Uh, 12 or so?
I was working the register.
Guy comes in, buys a box of ivory flakes and a sixer of old style.
He pays with a couple bucks and...
The second I see it, I know what it is...
It's a George Washington silver.
I tell my dad, "pop, this quarter is rare.
It's worth four bucks."
Barely get the words outta my mouth...
He hightails it outta here to give it back.
He can't find the guy, so he tapes it to the side of the register...
He's hoping [CHUCKLING] that this guy will come back so we can return it.
After about a week, he starts talking about givin' it to father mahoney for the poor box, so I make it disappear.
And after that, every day after school, I'm checking the till.
You know, something catches my eye, I stick it in the box, put it up there for good luck.
So much for good luck.
It was a cryin' shame they lost this place.
[CHUCKLING] They never shoulda bought it in the first place.
My dad didn't have it in him.
Your folks worked so hard.
Yeah, they worked hard!
They worked a lotta hours for a lotta years.
I dunno, Jimmy. He had a lotta customers.
Everybody liked him.
Everybody liked him 'cause he was a soft touch.
Every deadbeat in the neighborhood owed him money.
You come in here with a sob story, you leave with a pat on the back and a gallon of milk.
He... he coulda made it work.
He coulda sold beer and cigarettes to the kids from Mary-Margaret's, but [CHUCKLES] oh, no, not him.
He was never gonna do what he had to do.
How'd you know there'd be another?
[DOG BARKING IN DISTANCE]
Those conventioneers been talking farm equipment for 10 hours straight...
Now they wanna party.
Gonna be a big night, my friend. Whaddya say?
Time to get moving? Let's go.

[METAL DETECTOR BEEPING]
[METAL DETECTOR BEEPS LOUDLY]
[METAL DETECTOR BEEPING]
[METAL DETECTOR BEEPING]
Yeah. Tribal police?
Yeah, I was out on your property this afternoon and found a dead body.
Off the old post road.
Out in the scrub, just past the oasis motel billboard.
I was out with my metal detector, looking for arrowheads.
No, I don't want to give my name.
I-I-i was trespassing.
Look, y-you'd better send someone out there to find him before the coyotes do.
♪♪ CHUCK: Over here, I've recorded the location of the incident, that is where I was physically when it began.
This column gives a proximate origin...
Uh, and as you can see, uh, much of time, I couldn't be sure, so I just wrote "ambient."
Um, and, of course, I've recorded the, uh, times and dosages of the medicine.
This is very impressive, Charles.
And look at the trend!
Day one, pain of 7 and 8, even 8.5.
Day three, nothing higher than five and a quarter.
It's all 3s and 4s.
Later in the session, I'd like to give you some exercises and strategies that might help even more.
I'm all ears.
How do you see your next steps?
Well, clearly, with this kind of improvement, [SCOFFS] It won't be long before I'm back to work full time, with no accommodations.
And then, soon after, I want to get back into court.
I haven't argued a case in almost three years, so that's next.
And I'm gonna get these lights turned back on.
I want this house to be full of music.
I want to have a dinner party...
Oh, hell, no. [CHUCKLES]
A great, big celebration.
I want a hundred people in here, spilling out onto the lawn...
I want caterers and a full bar.
I want to be surrounded by friends and colleagues.
[CHUCKLES] Those are excellent goals.
[SIGHS] Doctor, I wouldn't have believed I could come so far so quickly.
And I have to give you the lion's share of the credit.
Well, it's remarkable.
But Rome wasn't built in a day.
I know rushing forward may be tempting, but it's important to give yourself time.
You've just begun a journey that could take years.
Well, I suppose, but, um, surely you'd admit that every case is different?
Then perhaps, uh, my recovery might be speedier than your run-of-the-mill patient.
Isn't that possible?
I'm just cautioning you not to push yourself too hard.
Mm. I know.
Appreciate every step forward, but modulate your expectations.
Let's talk about the night you first called me.
Mm. You sounded very distressed.
Using a telephone must have been difficult for you.
I had to walk 10 blocks to a pay phone.
That was extremely uncomfortable.
P-probably almost a 9.
[INHALES SHARPLY, CLEARS THROAT]
What made it so important to talk to me that night?
I'd had an incident.
A very public incident.
Perhaps the worst experience of my life.
It was proven to me, in public, and beyond the shadow of a doubt, that there was a battery... A fully charged battery...
Almost next to my skin for the better part of two hours.
And I felt nothing.
What does that mean to you?
To me, it's as real as that chair.
It's as real as this house.
It's as real as you.
What if it's not?
What if it's all in my head?
And if that's true...
If it's not real...
Then what have I done?
JIMMY: It's all in the storyboards.
Get set for the master shot.
We about ready? Just about.
I gotta hand it to you.
[CHUCKLING] I mean, this is the busiest weekday we've had in the last six months.
And are people mentioning the commercial?
You know what?
They are. [CHUCKLES] [CHUCKLING] Excellent!
I know. [CHUCKLES] Oh, here's your partner.
Hey, get him into make-up, and we can carve this Turkey.
Okay. Listen. L... ex-excuse me.
Not now. It's all right.
I just got off the phone with the station.
You don't even work for them.
I never said I work for the station.
I... [CLEARS THROAT]
Saul Goodman productions, remember?
You work with us so you don't have to deal with the bureaucrats at kwbv.
We take care of everything.
Okay. Remind me, how much is all this gonna cost?
Exactly what we talked about the [CHUCKLING] other day.
The first one was gratis. That's my treat.
Now we're moving on to the elite package...
Seven commercials for the heavily discounted price of $6,500.
The station just quoted me $450 per.
$450? That's for air time only.
Call the station.
Ask them how much they'd charge for production of seven top-flight TV commercials.
Okay, but why do we need seven new ones in the first place?
What... what's to stop us from paying the station to just keep running the one we have?
That's not what we agreed to.
[CHUCKLING] How about that for starters?
He did give us the first one for free.
Yeah, I know.
Okay, how about this...
How about we pay you $450 for the one that already aired, and then we take it from there?
Guys, I don't wanna get technical on ya, but that commercial...
It doesn't actually belong to you.
Look, it's the real and intellectual property of Saul Goodman productions.
[SCOFFS] I don't think so.
I mean, it's our faces.
It's our store. And it's my commercial.
And you can't run it without my permission. Oh. Okay.
Okay. Want to play it like that?
Mm-hmm. Okay, $450 is now off the table.
Yeah, and that crew of yours? [CHUCKLING] Yeah.
Just a bunch of unm students.
We can get those. We can get students.
We can get students. Yes, we can.
We can reshoot the ad... Yes.
...and then run that. How about that? Guys. Guys, come on.
Now, you wouldn't even be thinking about a commercial if it wasn't for me!
Okay, we are not gonna pay you $6,500 for something that we can do ourselves.
You got it? Seriously?
Th... Excuse us.

Uh, guys. Sorry to interrupt.
Just want to make sure... There's no wiggle room here?
We are with customers right now. Yeah.

No, you don't need to...

Yes, an ambulance.
That's a good idea.
You guys have liability insurance, right?
KEVIN: To our "four corners strategy..."
Cheers to that. Cheers.
I'm not saying this to rush you, but I have a 2:45 tee time at four hills...
So don't let me get, uh, long-winded.
I've heard the water gets tricky on the back nine there.
You heard right. I didn't know you played.
Well, growing up where I did, there was pretty much nothing else to do.
We oughta be having this meeting out on the fairway.
Well, I think Kim has a lot to cover.
Speaking of which...
Sorry, but I-i gotta ask.
I've got a friend, Billy gatwood.
He's a driller, has a small operation over near farwell.
Anyway, the poor bastard's tangled up in some kind of an interstate wrangle between Texas and new Mexico.
Now, I can't make heads or tails of it, and neither can he.
His lawyer was a local guy, completely over his head.
So Billy's fired the guy, but now he doesn't know whether to shit or wind his watch...
Pardon my French.
[CHUCKLES] HOWARD: Right this way.
Anyhow, I told him about the job you're doing for us, and I know he'd love to talk to you.
...Montana, I'd suggest big sky.
It's got all the beauty of Montana, but you don't have to wait as long in the lift lines.
Another... Oh, wow.
I can't tell you how flattering that is.
PAIGE: Remember, Kim's got her hands full with Utah and Colorado.
As far as I'm concerned, she's proven she can field whatever we throw at her and then some.
Kevin, your faith in me is...
It's... It means a lot.
But when we first started working together, I promised you mesa verde would be my sole focus.
And I meant it.
Well, sure, but I gotta TAKE... HOWARD: Hey there!
I thought I saw some familiar faces.
Howard. Kim... Sit.
...Paige... Always wonderful to see you.
You, too, Howard. How've you been?
Fantastic. Thank you.
All's well with the expansion?
I saw you got that branch approved on your original timeline, after all.
We did. Thanks to Ms. wexler here.
[CHUCKLES] Well, Kim's one of the best.
You're lucky to have her.
She sure is, and we sure are.
Seems like just yesterday she was logging hours in doc review.
Always a pleasure to see one of our protégées spread her wings and leave the nest.
Well, I'll get out of your hair.
Best of luck to all of you.
You, too, Howard.
I appreciate that we've got you all to ourselves, but I'm thinking Billy just needs a consultation... I'm so sorry, um, but, uh, would you excuse me for just a moment?
[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]
HOWARD: I've had the salmon here and the fillet.
If you like sea scallops, they're fantastic.
Kim. Uh, uh, hello again. Howard... Sit.
I insist. Sorry to interrupt.
I just needed to give Howard something.
Folks, this is Kim wexler, a former member of our firm.
Kim, uh, this is the team from O'Malley industries.
Oh, of course. I remember Lauren.
Good to see you again, Kim.
This is Jack sweet, our new cfo.
Oh, hello. Pleasure.
Nice to see you, too, Henry, Nick.
Marie Austin. Good to meet you. Nice to meet you.
Good to see all of you.
Have a wonderful lunch, Howard.
Sorry to hold things up.
PAIGE: Not at all. Okay.
Kevin, if you want to give me Mr. gatwood's number, I'd be happy to speak to him.
Well, that's great.
Once I understand what's going on, I'll put him together with a firm that'll take very good care of him.
I leave it in your capable hands.
Great. Okay, Utah.
The good news is the filing requirements are very similar to what we submitted for Arizona. Oh, good.
Thanks again, Kim. I'll let Billy know you'll be calling, and we'll talk tee times soon.
Sounds good. All right. See you soon, Kim.
[ENGINE STARTS] Thank you.
What the hell is this?
I think it's pretty self-explanatory.
Look, Howard, you were very generous when I left hhm, but it never sat right with me that you covered my law-school loans.
It seemed to sit right at the time.
I appreciate the gift, but now that I'm able to afford it, I want to pay you back.
Oh, you "appreciate the gift"?
Yes, I do, Howard. You know what I'm doing in there?
Take a guess.
I'm doing damage control.
And I'm doing it three meals a day for the past two weeks with every one of our clients.
I'm busting my ass, trying to repair the reputation of the firm after you and Jimmy dragged it through the mud.
I did everything in my power to defend my client.
Oh, is that what you're calling it?
That's the job, Howard.
And by the way, it was all very convenient for you to ignore Chuck's illness when it suited you.
So, I take you out of the mail room, put you through law school, mentor you, and then when you leave and stab me in the back, that's my fault?
[BRAKES SQUEAK] I'm not cashing this.
Kim, your debt is forgiven.
But anything else? That's on you.
All Jimmy and I did was show the situation for what it is.
And if you are hiding that from your clients?
Well, Howard, that's on you.

Not forever, but at least until you're back to 100%.
I appreciate the thought, but no.

I sure as shootin' can.

You knowingly prevented him from visiting his child in the hospital.
If that isn't intentional infliction of emotional distress, what is?

I can also sue you for failure to approve community-service hours...
That's a direct violation of your duties as an agent of the state of new Mexico.
I'm only doin' my job...
And just for tickles, maybe I throw in failure to treat and mitigate damages suffered by me due to injuries sustained under your watch.
Injury? My back.
You're full of shit. The waiver clearly states...
[CHUCKLING] Now, that waiver's gonna make Swiss cheese look solid.
And in a personal lawsuit, it's a fart in the wind.
You're never gonna win that.
Maybe. Maybe not.
In order to find out, we gotta do some math.
A lawyer's gonna cost you about 90 bucks an hour.
You're looking at 8 to 12 months of litigation, minimum.
I'll represent myself.

You can go to your wife.
You can explain to her you're about to lose your job, your pension, and whatever pinhole of a reputation you've got at the bowling alley on glow-ball Sundays, or let my friend here visit his sick daughter in the hospital, and you can let me rest my back on this sacred, now litter-free new Mexico soil.
