One week after his trip to the military base with Major “Fudge” Talbot, quick-thinking Jimmy McGill comes up with another bit of trickery to gain access to a filming location for his continuing commercial shoot in Monday’s Better Call Saul.
In the exclusive clip above, Jimmy and his crew, which now includes a teenage makeup artist, are about to capture Jimmy on film in patriotic mode, using the flagpole at a local elementary school as their backdrop.
When school administrators catch him and try to end the shoot, Jimmy comes up with a story about how he’s filming a documentary on the school’s famous alumnus, Rupert Holmes, he of “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” fame. But the name and song title don’t ring a bell — it is one of those songs you don’t always remember until you hear a few lyrics — so Jimmy launches into an a cappella performance for the school officials, and they’re wooed by his charms … despite a hilarious bit of interference from his own squad that almost derails his efforts.
The episode, “Nailed,” is the penultimate installment of Season 2, and, minor spoiler alert, doesn’t make us wait long to find out what Mike was fashioning with that garden hose in “Fifi.”
Better Call Saul airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on AMC
