Did You Know?


The title 'Open House' references the self-destructive ways in which Marie Schrader as well as Jesse Pinkman try to distract themselves from facing their deteriorating lives: Marie by her role playing / kleptomania during actual Open Houses; Jesse by 'opening' his house to derelict meth heads and partying non-stop.

When Marie is admiring the spoon collection, the realtor says that there is one for each state, and Marie points out that Puerto Rico is a territory. This would indicate that there are 51 spoons. There are actually 54 in the display case. See more »
