Jimmy: "Tonight is a funny night. For some reason tonight, I feel like I've got all the answers. I'm feeling kind of like, uh... like Carnac. Do you remember when Johnny Carson used to do Carnac? You know, he'd give the answers before the questions. You know, Ed would give him the envelope, yeah? And Johnny would hold it up to his forehead, and, um, he'd give the answer, like, "Leave It to Beaver." Then Johnny'd tear open the envelope. And there's the question... "What did the dead raccoon say in his will?" That ring a bell? Before your time? All right, well, let's cut to the chase. Um, that guy ‭who just walked out of here... his name is Ernie. I'm guessing he showed you my picture and asked if ‭I was in here the other night. Now he's going to bring his boss, who's my brother, and he's gonna ask you the same question... "Did you see that guy the other night?" Well, the answer is no. You feel me?"
Lance: "You murder someone?"
Jimmy: "Nope."
Lance: "Rob a bank?"
Jimmy: "No way am I that cool. I... Sometimes, I go number two and I don't flush, but... this is just a thing between brothers. And we're both lawyers, so... Right? I mean, ‭that's a long and boring story. You don't wanna know."
―Lance questions Jimmy McGill[src]

Lance is a cashier at the Valliant copy shop.

History[]

Better Call Saul[]

Season 2[]

Jimmy McGill comes into the Valliant copy shop and asks Lance for X-ACTO knife, a ruler, 20 pounds of Hammermill Premium paper, one ream and a glue stick. ("Fifi")

Realizing that Lance's testimony will implicate him in the Mesa Verde forgery, Jimmy drives back to the copy shop. He gets there just in time to see Ernesto asking Lance before walking out and getting into his car. Jimmy panics, as it's only a matter of time before Ernesto returns with Chuck. Once Ernesto is out of sight, Jimmy reenters the copy shop and approaches Lance. He explains that Chuck is coming back to ask Lance about Jimmy. As Jimmy elaborates, he produces money from his wallet, making clear he's bribing Lance. Lance is reluctant to help if doing so means he gets in trouble with the police. Jimmy assures him that Chuck will make it seem like it, but he won't. Jimmy asks about the surveillance cameras and is told that the cameras record on a twelve hour feed. He offers a bribe for Lance to deny that Jimmy had been in the shop and Lance asks for an additional $200 to have the surveilance tapes erased.

The bribe complete, Jimmy goes across the street and waits. Minutes later, Ernesto returns with Chuck. They approach Lance and Chuck produces the photo Ernesto had already shown him. Lance pretends to not recognize it, and Chuck promptly calls him out for lying, since he apparently already said "yes" when Ernesto made his prior visit. Lance claims that he was mistaken and he's never seen Jimmy. Chuck becomes increasingly agitated as his hypersensitivity starts to kick in from exposure to the lights and copy equipment. When he snaps at another customer seeking help, Lance tells Ernesto to remove Chuck from the store otherwise he will call the police. Chuck tries to go after Lance, but eventually the EHS prove too much for Chuck to take. He falls forward, hits his head on a counter, and falls to the floor. Across the street, Jimmy is horrified at seeing Chuck collapse. He silently watches Lance and Ernesto gather around Chuck, while pleading that someone call 911. ("Nailed")

Jimmy rushes inside the copy shop and orders for Lance to call an ambulance before turning off the machines and lights. ("Klick")

Season 3[]

Chuck mentions Lance in his rant during Jimmy's disciplinary hearing and describes him as the "idiot at the copy shop". ("Chicanery")
