During a break in the action, Jesse hits the snack table, where Badger and Skinny are chowing down on donuts. After some hilariously formal "introductions," ("My name is Brandon ... and this is, I believe, Peter?"), Jesse pulls them both to the side and tells them product is going to be slow-flowing, what with "Grandpa Anus" on his case. He asks after the selling, but Badger doesn't have good news on that front. He sold a "teenth" ... to Skinny. But otherwise, neither one of them has been able to get over the queasiness of selling to people who just want to get better. "It's like shooting a baby in the face," Badger says. "It's not natural." Jesse's furious that he's risking his ass to score product and they're "too pussy" to sell. He wants the stuff back so he can show them how it's done. Starting with Andrea, it seems. Jesse sidles up next to her, introduces himself, and confesses that he doesn't really want to be there either. He not at all subtly escorts her to the door. Man, when Badger and Skinny Pete are questioning your moral decision-making? Yikes.
After the break, we get the same kind of POV shot that we got with Jesse staring down at the sheet of meth. Only this time it's Skyler staring down at a pot of water. She dumps in some pasta (into non-boiling water? Girl, that shit's gonna be mushy!) and goes about the rest of her dinner prep. Flynn sees an extra place setting and asks if Marie's coming to dinner. Skyler says no, Walt is. And despite Flynn's recent cold-shoulderings towards Walt, he seems happy to hear it. Unlike the more awkward recent family get-togethers, this one feels like old times for the Whites. Flynn jokes with Walt about boring baby Holly to sleep, or about the car he wants to get now that he's eligible for a provisional license (he wants a 'Stang!); Walt suggests something with bicycle cards in the spokes. The smile on Skyler's face as she watches the three of them getting along so well goes a long way towards making you understand why she does what she does this week.
