Nobody can say I don't take care of my son. You gonna come in my house and judge me? Like you got no responsibility, so it's okay for you to get high. (...) What do you know about me? I take care of my baby. I'll do anything for him. The day Brock was born, I swore I won't let what happened to Tomás happen to my son. I'll die first.

Jesse, Andrea, and Brock were happy in their relationship until Walt made Jesse think about the time in the future, when Jesse would have to confess to Andrea his involvement in the meth trade. In response, Jesse broke things off with Andrea ("Hazard Pay").

While Jesse worked with Hank to bring justice to Walt, Walt visited Andrea. He told her that he and Jesse got into an argument and Jesse could not be found. He also mentioned that Jesse had been using drugs again. In order to help Walt out, Andrea left Jesse a voicemail, telling him to call her back later. During this visit, Walt also tried to make conversation with Brock, who answered his questions in a curt manner. ("To'hajiilee")
