Breaking Bad Connection #2: Daryl Describes Jesse Pinkman
Remember when The Walking Dead basically turns into "The Daryl and Beth Show" in season four? Well, during the episode "Still," Daryl tells Beth a story about a time he and Merle were watching cartoons with Merle's drug dealer, who sounds an awful lot like Jesse Pinkman:
"Merle had this dealer. This janky little white guy. A tweaker. One day we were over at his house watching TV. Wasn't even noon yet and we were all wasted. Merle was high. We were watching this show and Merle was talking all this dumb stuff about it. And he wouldn't let up. Merle never could. Turns out it was the tweaker's kids' favorite show. And he never sees his kids, so he felt guilty about it or something. So he punches Merle in the face. So I started hitting the tweaker, like, hard. As hard as I can. Then he pulls a gun, sticks it right here. He says, 'I'm gonna kill you, b*tch.' So Merle pulls his gun on him. Everyone's yelling. I'm yelling. I thought I was dead. Over a dumb cartoon about a talking dog."
A janky little white tweaker who says "b*tch" a lot? C'mon.
