S4E3 – “Something Beautiful”

Cameo(s): Gale Boetticher (David Costabile), Ira (Franc Ross), DIPPING STICKS!

The Story: I REPEAT: DIPPING STICKS! Early on in Season 3 of Breaking Bad, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) attempts to get back into his house by bringing dinner home. Skyler (Anna Gunn) is having none of it, so Walt feebly offers up the dipping sticks as a Hail Mary. Spoiler: It doesn’t work. Walt then tosses the pizza up onto the roof in an iconic moment that fans still try to recreate today. (Don’t do this.)

In this episode of Better Call Saul, Mr. Neff (Andrew Friedman), aka: the sad sack copier guy, orders up some delivery pizza – complete with dipping sticks – to his office sleepover. One can only assume he also ordered from Venezia’s Pizza as he’s asked whether or not he wants it sliced. An unsliced pizza is basically worthless unless you want to toss it up on a roof, and did I mention that you really shouldn’t do that?

Oh, and if the guy lurking around Mr. Neff’s office during the Hummel heist looked familiar, he is. His name is Ira, and in the very near future he will be helping to run a meth empire out of a little extermination business called Vamonos Pest.

Last but definitely not least, Gail Boetticher is BACK! Oh how I missed you, Gail! He arrives on the scene in a spectacularly Gail way, singing the complex and captivating song “The Elements” by Tom Lehrer. We’re reintroduced to Gail when Gus comes to check on some meth samples he left earlier. It’s been awhile since we’ve heard people rattle off percentages related to meth purity, but it’s not too hard to recall that 58% is your basic crap. Gail enthusiastically offers to cook up a batch for Gus in his lab, but Gus – always thinking ahead – declines. We’re sure to see more of Gail and his lyrical gymnastics as the season progresses, and, if we’re lucky, we might just actually get his famous recipe for vegan s’mores.
