** Jesse punches Detective Paulie Bridges, who takes it without blinking and then drops Jesse with one punch to the gut.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: The L'Angelles. Jesse remarks that the L'Angelles must have the "Devil's own piss" running in their veins instead of blood. It was something of a miracle that Jesse's own mother turned out as well as she did -- which is probably why she fled in the first place.
