If you are one of those people who are still recovering from the epic series finale of Breaking Bad from several months ago, feast your eyes and ears on this highly entertaining alternate ending.

The hysterical clip, available on the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series DVD box set, begins as Bryan Cranston wakes up gasping from "the scariest dream" and finds himself in bed next to Jane Kaczmarek, his costar from Malcolm in the Middle.

The duo is back as married couple Hal and Lois, the characters they portrayed on the hit comedy series from 2000-2006.

"I told you not to eat those deep fried Twinkies," Kaczmarek tells her onscreen hubby as he clutches the blankets in fear.

"You don't understand, I was this meth dealer," Cranston says as he explains his nightmare.

"What?" Kaczmarek says in total disbelief.

"Yeah, I was this world-class chemist and I cooked and I sold this ultra pure methamphetamine," he says as he fights back tears.

"You cooking anything?" Kaczmarek utters with a chuckle.

He also recounts several characters from the dream, including a man who said nothing but would just ring a bell, and a DEA agent who was just "like that guy from The Shield." He also admits to his wife that he "made bombs" and "killed people."

Without missing a beat,  Kaczmarek utters "if you think this nightmare is going to keep you from driving the kids to school you have another thing coming."

Cranston also reveals that he was married to "this tall beautiful blonde."

"Yeah, well keep dreaming," Kaczmarek says.


Perhaps the best line from the whole exchange was Cranston admitting that the only bit from the dream that seemed real was walking around in his underwear.

But was Walter White really just in Hal's dream? Watch the final moment to find out!
