During the first years of Breaking Bad, we always found each other in the little two-by-four gym at the Homewood Suites. This our relationship right here: I would come in and Jonathan’s on the stepper, stepping, like, two miles an hour. I’m like, “Well, you got to step faster to get some sweat going and get your workout on, dude.” The TV would be blaring the news and I would go and take the clicker. He’d look at me and I’d look at him. I’d turn the freaking thing off, and I’d get on the treadmill. He would take a few more steps on the stepper. He would look at me, and he would get off the stepper, go to the remote and turn the f—ing thing back on! Finally, after two or three rounds of this, we’d both look at each other, and he’d look at me calmly and say, “Well, what if I just turn it down to half the volume?” I said, “That would work for me.” That’s our relationship.
