'Breaking Bad' preview: Worst small talk ever
It's just another day at the office for Walt ( Bryan Cranston) and Jesse ( Aaron Paul) on "Breaking Bad." Except for the part where Walt bums a cigarette, and they talk about killing Gus.
In the scene from Sunday's (Sept. 11) episode, "Bug," Walt is unsurprisingly getting impatient that Jesse has not yet taken a chance at bumping off Gus ( Giancarlo Esposito). But the way he expresses it to Jesse -- shoehorning it in while trying to feign a friendly conversation between colleagues for Gus' cameras -- is a little bit ha-ha funny and more than a little sad-funny. As close as they are, Walt still doesn't really know Jesse that well.
Note to both Walt and Jesse: Any shooting-the-breeze conversation that includes the phrase "Don't you have enough cancer already?" and ends with "We're both dead men anyway" isn't really the best kind of small talk.
"Breaking Bad" airs at 10 p.m. ET Sunday on AMC. For more, follow the show on Facebook and Twitter.
