Mike Ehrmantraut Is Confused by Menstruation
Throughout his career, Jonathan Banks -- aka Breaking Bad's avuncular hitman Mike Ehrmantraut -- has depicted a lot of tough guys unafraid to get blood on their hands. But in one of his first roles, blood terrified him.
Why's that? Banks played a seemingly 10,000-year-old teenager in the underappreciated 1974 educational flick Linda's Film on Menstruation. His reality is totally shattered when his girlfriend yells "It means that blood is flowing out of my uterus!"

The poor guy never had a time when he enjoyed a decent hairline.
Unlike Breaking Bad, Linda's Film on Menstruation ends on a happy note. In the final moments, Banks' character proudly admits that he can "purchase sanitary napkins without flinching." Of course, he probably murdered a dozen men with those napkins once the cameras stopped rolling, but at least he now knows how fallopian tubes work.
