History

Better Call Saul

Season 1

Jimmy McGill hires the Sound Guy and his friend Joey Dixon to film his plea beneath his billboard, which is being removed on orders of HHM for copyright infringement. The Sound Guy watches in shock as the billboard worker loses his footing and falls, being rescued by Jimmy who scaled the billboard to save him as part of a publicity stunt to bring attention to his law firm. ("Hero")

Season 2

The Sound Guy, Joey Dixon, and Jimmy sneak into a military base to film a tracking shot for Jimmy's new commercial. They arrive with Fudge, a former client of Jimmy's who they have placed in a wheelchair with an oxygen mask to fool the soldiers into believing he is a senile war veteran. After Jimmy convinces the captain to momentarily leave them, Fudge poses before a B-29 bomber as the Sound Guy and Joey use the wheelchair to record the shot. ("Fifi")

The Sound Guy, Joey Dixon, and Drama Girl are employed by Jimmy to shoot his commercial beneath the American flag at W.H. Mauldin elementary school. ("Nailed")

Season 3

Jimmy offers to record a commercial for the owners of a carpet store, however they refuse his proposal. After delivering this news to the Sound Guy and Joey Dixon, the Drama Girl suggests that they instead shoot a commercial for himself to boost business. Jimmy and the crew drive to a TV station to shoot an unrehearsed ad in front of the station's antennae and satellite dishes. ("Off Brand")

Jimmy again meets with the Sound Guy, Joey, and and the Drama Girl. As his car fails to start, Jimmy and the crew are forced to take a bus to their next stop. They travel to a music store to film an advertisement, but Rick and Ryan, the store's owners, express doubt that Jimmy is worth their money. Eager to not lose his potential customers, Jimmy agrees to film the commercial free of charge, forcing him to pay the crew with almost all of the cash in his wallet, leaving him penniless. ("Expenses")

Season 4

In order to free Huell Babineaux from conviction, Jimmy hires Joey Dixon's crew to aid his efforts to fool assistant district attorney Suzanne Ericsen into believing that Huell is a local hero in his hometown. The Sound Guy mixes a series of CDs with appropriate background noise, such as church organ music, while the other crew members answer calls from the ADA to make it seem as though the calls are coming from locations in Huell's hometown. He plays it on Jimmy's signal and the con works. Jimmy subsequently leaves the crew to man the drop phones and gives them instructions for what to do, having paid them for working the whole day. ("Coushatta")

Season 5

Sound Guy, Drama Girl, and Joey Dixon pose as TV reporters who confront Bill Oakley who is being ambushed by the crew at the Court House. ("Magic Man") Jimmy presents the crew with an old Mesa Verde commercial at the nail salon, with a young Kevin Watchell and Don Wachtell appear. ("Wexler v. Goodman")
