Chuck McGill is understandably conditioned to expect a certain degree of hustle from Jimmy at any time. The arrival of Chuck’s ex-wife Rebecca, for instance, is greeted smugly by him because he assumes Jimmy is doing a variation of the Frankie Pentangeli gambit from The Godfather Part II.
And Jimmy is running the Pentangeli to a degree, because he knows Rebecca’s presence — and her discovery of the condition that Chuck went to great lengths to hide from her, with Jimmy’s assistance — will agitate Chuck, and make him more primed to explode when evidence is presented of what the condition actually is. But she’s there primarily to trigger that condescending response from Chuck — to convince him that he’s once again two steps ahead of his brother, that Chuck’s brilliant legal mind will always be more powerful than Jimmy’s con man brain, and that if Chuck is prepared for a hustle to come, it can’t possibly work.
Q. How do I inform you that my name has changed?
A: Advise the Supreme Court. The name of record will not change until the Supreme Court publishes the new name information in a certificate. This can take up to two months. In the meantime, you should use your old name for official purposes. The Bar’s cross-reference record will direct inquiries to the current name of record.
So, we got a phone.
The yard's half-mowed.
Uh, the sockets and stuff are looking a-ok.
I'm gonna check again just to make sure.
We're almost there.
Howard: Jimmy was very agitated. He was shouting. He demanded Charles turn over - the evidence he'd been collecting
Kim: Objection. We haven't established the tape is evidence of anything. The defense has only acknowledged it as a piece of property.
Howard: Uh, allow me to rephrase. Jimmy demanded an audiocassette in Charles' possession, which Jimmy proceeded, with the help of an iron fireplace implement, to pry from Charles' desk. He then broke the cassette into pieces and went on to confront his brother.
Kim[?]: What happened after the defendant smashed this tape?
Howard: Mr. Brightbill and I -
[Someone]: That's the private investigator that Charles hired?
Howard: That's correct. He and I were concerned that Jimmy might strike his brother. So that's when we stepped in.
