In an entirely different scene, Jesse is having a party and orders a pizza, which arrives unsliced. Badger explains to his confused friends that “they don’t cut the pizza, and they pass the savings on to you.”
These are two scenes that just feel like unique Breaking Bad quirks. But as we’ve come to learn from repeated viewings and analysis, nothing is a coincidence on Breaking Bad.
During creator Vince Gilligan’s Reddit AMA , one fan asked, “Was Badger and Skinny Pete’s conversation at Jesse’s party about the pizzas not being sliced written in after the fact to explain how Walters pizza landed on the roof intact? Everyone knows a sliced pizza would have come apart.”
As creator Vince Gilligan says of the unsliced pizza, it had to do with continuity and physics:
Yes! We had a long discussion before we shot the pizza on the roof scene about whether or not the pizza should be sliced—because, as all you physicists know, a thrown, sliced pizza would come apart due to centrifugal force or angular momentum (or something like that). And yet, you’re right: no self-respecting pizza parlor sells an unsliced pizza. So we figured we needed to explain it (in the “They pass the savings on to you” scene), or else face our audience’s righteous wrath!
Unsliced pizza: just another reason Breaking Bad is the best show on television.
