Qualls' - Al - Aluminium; Krysten Ritter - Kr - Krypton; Matt Jones - At - Astatine; Steven Michael Quezada - H - Hydrogen; Skip Macdonald - Ac - Actinium; Robb Wilson King - W - Tungsten (Wolfram); Michael Slovis - Ch - (Ch is not an element of the periodic table.); Dave Porter - Po - Polonium; Sharon Bialy - S - Sulfur; Sherry Thomas - Y - Yttrium; Sam Catlin - Ca - Calcium; Stewart Lyons - Ar - Argon; Melissa Bernstein - Be - Beryllium; John Shiban - Ba - Barium; Mark Johnson - O - Oxygen; Karen Moore - Mo - Molybdenum; Peter Gould - Te - Tellurium; Terry McDonough - Er - Erbium.


Quotes

Jesse Pinkman: Nah, come on man. Some straight like you, giant stick up his ass at like what, sixty, he's just gonna break bad?


Goofs

In the opening credits letters in the names are highlighted in green so as to represent a chemical element symbol. However, Michael Slovis, the Director of Photography, for several of the beginning episodes, they highlight the Ch. There is no chemical element symbol Ch. After a number of episodes they caught it and thereafter they only highlighted the C.


Crazy Credits

Opening credits use chemical symbols from the periodic table of elements as part of names : bromine (Br), and barium (Ba) for the title, none for creator Vince Gilligan (except when he gets a V for Vanadium), one for cast and crew members.


Alternate Versions

All episodes were rerun on an on-demand cable channel in some areas, without commercials but with additional scenes not included on AMC.
