In a flash-forward, Walt sits in a diner and arranges his bacon into the number 52: it's his birthday. The waitress tells him that meals are free on birthdays, so Walt flashes her a New Hampshire driver's license with his photo on it. A man walks in — it's Lawson, the gun dealer from whom Walt purchased his .38 revolver. Walt follows him into the bathroom, where he hands Lawson a thick envelope in exchange for a set of keys. Lawson asks for Walt's assurance that the acquisition won't wind up in Mexico, and then leaves. Walt coughs and pops some pills. As he leaves the restaurant, the waitress calls out, "Happy birthday, Mr. Lambert." In the parking lot, Walt opens the trunk of a white Volvo and takes out a duffel bag.
