Do you find yourself entering Breaking Bad withdrawal already? Relive Season 2 with some of’s exclusive cast interviews. It’s all you’ll need to hold out until Season 3.

• “As long as Walt’s looking in the mirror and seeing someone he doesn’t recognize, he can justify what he’s doing: ‘That’s not me; that’s Heinsenberg.'” — Bryan Cranston (Walter White)

• “Even as an actor reading these scripts, I found myself laughing at things I knew I should absolutely not be laughing about.” — Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman)

• “Bryan [Cranston] said, ‘I think we’re going to get more letters about you smoking than we get about me cooking crystal.’ A person should obviously not be smoking or doing anything like that when they’re pregnant.” — Anna Gunn (Skyler White)

• “Beheading is a big thing for those cartels. Having seen it, that’s not anything I would want to be a part of. It’s like, ‘I’m sorry, my bad. You win!'” — Dean Norris (Hank Schrader)

• “I’ve never been through a 12-step program, so I don’t know if you’re like ‘Well, I do this because I have issues with my father.’ Maybe some people do that… But I don’t think Marie is going to.” — Betsy Brandt (Marie Schrader)

• “You don’t see too much of [Walter Jr.’s] life… I’d like to see where he goes when he goes out. Is he really going to Louis’s, or does he go out to some rave?” — RJ Mitte (Walter Jr.)

• “Some people are hard to kill… The shootout was pretty big and it was a good direct hit. [Tuco] was willing to face it and he knew it was coming.” — Raymond Cruz (Tuco Salamanca)

• “You definitely go to the guy who works his way around the system as opposed to the clean guy who just does contracts… These guys are real, and some day you too may have to go see Saul Goodman.” — Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman)

• “Playing dead and hearing peoples’ reactions around you is really f—ed up. There were a few takes where I had to stop because it was too overwhelming.” — Krysten Ritter (Jane Margolis)

• “I think Gus’s dream and vision would be to create the fast food extravaganza — not just an eating experience, but a pleasurable outing for the whole family.” — Giancarlo Esposito (Gus Fring)

• “At its best, acting is not about words… There’s much more going on than words, and it was an opportunity to go completely away from words and yet have a whole existence.” — Mark Margolis (Tio)

• “Everyone cheered at the end of my last shot, then this one crew member said, ‘You’re still the only Mexican on this show that’s still alive, brotha!'” — Steven Michael Quezada (Gomez)

• “I do feel like I’m a part of these [love] triangles with some really interesting people. I think it’s because despite my efforts I look like a hippie.” — Jessica Hecht (Gretchen Schwartz)

• “One time I went in to get lunch, and back from behind me I heard this, ‘F—er.’ And Bryan [Cranston] comes up to me and says, ‘Hey man, stay away from my wife.'” — Christopher Cousins (Ted Beneke)
