Undoubtedly, the biggest money lesson from the entire show is to find a legal side gig. Walter White, played by brilliant actor Bryan Cranston, is a high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth-cooker who discovers he has cancer.

Before his lucrative drug business begins, White supplements his income by working after school at a local car wash as a cashier.
