Mr. Gardiner arranged a meeting between Jesse Pinkman and his parents to inform him that he had seventy-two hours to vacate his aunt's house. When his mom told him a DEA agent came looking for him, Jesse tried to spun the story by claiming he worked for the agency. She called him on the lie: "I saw your basement," she said. "I found your... laboratory." Mr. Gardiner explained that the house's owners — Jesse's parents — were liable for any drug activity there, and that was why Jesse had to leave. ("")
After noticing that his aunt's house was up for sale, Jesse arranges for Saul Goodman to meet with Mr. Gardiner and Jesse's parents in order to negotiate its purchase. Not revealing that Jesse is his client, Saul offers them $400,000 cash whilst their asking price was $875,000. "I just thought some allowance was in order once I heard about the meth lab," he said, noting they feloniously neglected to mention this in their disclosure statement. He threatened to encumber the property with a lawsuit if they didn't agree to the sale. Mr. Gardiner advises that the Pinkmans' accept the offer. ("")
