Meanwhile, Jesse goes to a go-kart track by himself and sadly drives his go-kart around. When he returns home, his house is in a state of chaos as a result of a meth party that had spiraled out of control: addicts who flocked to his party are stealing his belongings, vandalizing his walls, having rough sex on the floor in full view of others, and starting fights. Jesse, however, doesn't care: the activity in his house helps to keep his demons at bay, so he simply lights a cigarette and takes in the chaos...

After work, Walt meets with Skyler and Saul at his apartment. Saul is convinced that the car wash is a no-go and touts a spa, but Skyler is determined to buy the car wash. At first, Walt doesn't seem interested in the car wash anymore, but Skyler turns him around to her way of thinking when she plays to his pride, mentioning the disparaging comments Bogdan made about him.

As Marie gets caught stealing from open houses, drawing Hank's ire; a sanitation worker informs Bogdan that his wastewater containment systems have become faulty and need to be replaced, and his business has to shut down until it is repaired. Bogdan refuses to comply unless the sanitation worker can cite specific laws. He does, but what Bogdan doesn't realize is that this "sanitation worker" is Patrick Kuby, an employee of Saul Goodman, whom Skyler is feeding lines through a Bluetooth earpiece.

Tim Roberts, a detective with the Albuquerque police, visits Hank on his sickbed, and asks for his help in solving a peculiar case: the murder of Gale Boetticher. From the crime scene, Tim brings a notebook that Gale owned which seemed to contain notes on a meth-manufacturing superlab. Hank is resentful of the "charity" the APD is giving him, but agrees to look into the case. After Tim leaves, though, he sets the notebook aside and continues to peruse his minerals.

Back at the White residence, Walt and Skyler wait for Bogdan to call. Walt is convinced that their gambit failed, but Skyler persists. Eventually, Bogdan calls. Skyler offers to buy the car wash, but at a discount, because she didn't like Bogdan. Skyler hangs up on Bogdan, leaving Walt to think that she went too far, but he calls back and seems to accept Skyler's offer. The two celebrate their victory with a bottle of fancy champagne. When Skyler learns that the bottle costs over $300, she becomes cross with Walt, claiming that the bottle of fancy liquor contradicts their cover story of having modest means, which could spell disaster for them. As Walt pouts over the fact that he can't buy anything with his ill-gotten goods, Skyler quips how they should "destroy the evidence"...
