Anything with the Cousins was brilliant on this show. Especially their visits Pollos Hermanos.

...how is Danny Trejo's head riding on the back of an exploding tortoise not one of the 25. I think, for me, that was the moment I realised I properly loved this show.

Glad you included the post train heist scene. But in my mind, you missed the point. It's greatness is due to the transition from fist pumping triumph to utter despair... in a matter of moments.

When he saw the guy buying gear to cook meth in the hardware store and spoke to him, then snapped and confronted him and a big scary looking dude in the car park was the moment Walt truly became Heisenberg.

I think Giancarlo Esposito's tie shift for me after the explosion is the finest moment in the entire show. Although Mike's "Shut the f__k up and let me die in peace," was beautiful, brilliant in summing up what he thought about Walt.

The final shot of Crawl Space. Walt boxed in and cackling like a madman.

Come on! How is the final shot of Crawl Space on this list? That is just wrong.

I think there should be another 25 added to this list, like the Crawl Space. Walt's maniacal laughter in a seemingly impossible dilemma to wriggle his way out of. The tension when the cousins come to visit Walt to bonk him off, only to be called out right at the last minute whilst oblivious Walt is in the shower.

So, um, yeah. 25 more. :D

I have just watched the finale episode of Breaking Bad. I thought the final scene in which 'Heisenberg' is reflected in the boiler (might not be called a boiler), intentional or not, was very clever. In that moment he and Walt are connected, both have blood on their hands, and then they slip away from one another and it is Walt we are left with. Like Walter White once said 'Chemistry is about transformation,' and I think Breaking Bad has transformed television. Masterful.

One of the little quirks I liked about the show was that whenever Walt was extremely tired or drugged or drunk, small elements of truth would creep out of his mouth as he was no longer capable of controlling the lies that he told. The best example of this was when (I think) he was being prepped for surgery and Skylar asked him "have you switched your phone off" and in his drug-induced haze he replies "which one", and I think at that point Skylar knew just what a master liar she shared her bed with.

Enjoyed the list put together by Team Empire. Everyone will have favourite scenes that are not included. There were probably enough gems for a top 100

We don't know for certain what happened with Walt, Elliott and Gretchen and how Gray Matter fell through. When they meet Gretchen said that Walt abruptly walked out on her, and the business. Walt of course refuses to discuss that element of whatever the situation was, and that is telling. He doesn't want to see the situation as anything other than black and white.

It drives him along to be able to think of himself as the victim, with everything being everyone else's fault. That's part of his hubris. Even when he kills someone, in his mind it's because they force him to kill them.

Maybe he walked out because with his extreme low self esteem he couldn't handle the pressure. Maybe he met and fell in love with Skylar. We don't know for sure. But there are reasons to believe Walt was damaged long before Gray Matter fell through for him. It's possible that they did screw him over entirely, but it would seem to be a tad more complicated.

Then everyone who hasn't yet seen season 5 can just read it up to the point where they are within the show

I agree with everyone here, room for a top 50 or even 100. I was late into BB and watched the entire run back to back over several nights. I loved the Assassins ruse Walter uses to ensure his money is payed to his son by the Schwarzes.

Jesse's wooden box - 17/10/2013 1:33:49 PM

My favourite moments in the series was Jesse's wooden box speech in therapy, and tied to this, the incredibly poetic and tragic dream that Jesse has creating this box, which is interrupted by a reality cut to his imprisonment in the meth lab. Absolutely stunning, and for me the hands down best moment in the show.
