Episode: "Live Free or Die" (Season 5, Episode 1)
You normally wouldn't expect such outside-the-box genius from a foul-mouthed delinquent like Jesse Pinkman. No, you'd expect it from the brilliant chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin Walter White, or from the worldly, seasoned veteran of the criminal world Mike Ehrmantraut. Anyone but Pinkman. Of course, you'd be underestimating him just as much as Walt and Mike are in the early stages of the season five opener, "Live Free or Die."
As the episode begins, Walt's this close to being the man—after all, he's just killed Gustavo Fring. But there's just one problem: The laptop that has all of the footage of him and Jesse cooking that blue is locked up inside Albuquerque Police Department's evidence locker, and neither Walt or Mike can think of a plan crazy enough to get them into the locker and their hands on the computer.
Jesse, however, has a bright idea: use a giant magnet to wipe the laptop's memory clean. They test out their newly rigged mondo magnet at the local junkyard, and when it works, much to their collective surprise and awe, Jesse can't contain his euphoric pride. "Yeah, bitch! Magnets!" he shouts, jumping in the air, his arms raised triumphantly.
It's Jesse's funniest use of the B-word in the history of Breaking Bad. It's a rare moment of joy in the drug-addicted, constantly manipulated walking tragedy's life. And it's the last time he's ever going to unconditionally smile. But, hey, you can still...bitch. —Matt Barone
