Watch a Supercut of Breaking Bad’s Walter White Chewing Out Jesse Pinkman Over and Over

Breaking Bad's Walter White and Jesse Pinkman have one of the more complicated and intense relationships on television: Jesse is a sweetheart on-again-off-again drug addict with authority issues, while Walter is a suburban dad who developed lung cancer with a side of short temper. Put these two together, sic the DEA and scary drug kingpins after them, and, well, things get tense. Which is to say, there is a lot of yelling between these two. Much of it deserved (Jesse screws up often), but sometimes it feels as though Walt just likes to rip into Jesse to help him feel better about all the other shitty things going on in his life at the moment. As Breaking Bad returns to the airwaves Sunday night for its fifth season premiere, we'll be looking to see whether Walt pulls back on some of the "junkie idiot" talk. Until then, watch four seasons' worth of Walt's insults and lectures, right here in our very non-spoilery video.
