WARNING: Spoilers ahead!

Looking for a place to hang up your lab coat and lounge around in your tighty whities? Head on out to Albuquerque, NM, where three homes from the hit TV series "Breaking Bad" are cooking up interest.

First up is the house of Jesse Pinkman, the stoner student who became a master meth chef under the guidance of Walter White. Pinkman's palace has hit the streets with a list price of $1.6 million.

Thanks to an assist from lawyer Saul Goodman, Pinkman bought the two-story, 3,500-square-foot home in Season 3 of the show, but the home was a fixture on the show from the start.

The home's basement is where White, a budding kingpin, committed his first murder, strangling drug dealer Krazy-8 with a bike lock in the show's second episode.

"It's a Spanish Colonial Revival and different than the other houses in the series. They probably chose it for the variety," says co-listing agent Alicia Feil Peterson. She and her mother, Susan Peterson, have been selling homes in the area since 1982.

The duo worked on the home's marketing plan for a month and a half before launching They are opening the home only to pre-approved buyers in order to stave off the hordes of fans.

Built in 1929, the home features original hardwood floors and two porches. The windows, doors, chimneys, and fireplaces are framed by stone.

However, not every scene involving the house was filmed in the house. In the show's second episode, White suggests the "chemical disincorporation" of a dead body in the upstairs tub, only to have the acid eat through the floor and make a fluid-filled mess of the home's hardwood floors.

"Luckily, that was a set," Peterson says.

The home's actual upstairs bathroom was added in 2010. The addition also included a new master bedroom. "From an architectural view, [the transition] is seamless," Peterson says.

If Pinkman's party den is too raucous for your taste, the mother-daughter duo are also selling the residence of Gretchen and Elliott Schwartz, White's former colleagues who wind up playing a crucial role in the show's final episode.

This 6,500-square-foot house is located on 2 acres and on the market for $2.65 million.

"It's a very soft contemporary home, and one of the most spectacular houses in Albuquerque," says Feil Peterson.

The home has a distinctive water feature in the front courtyard -- fans of the show will recognize it as the place where White waits in the shadows to cut a final deal with the couple.

He follows them into the home and looks out the walls of glass, commenting on the great view the couple must have of the nearby mountains. This bit of fiction rings true: Feil Peterson says the views are spectacular and the outside area is "tremendously green."

The last home from everyone's favorite show about cooking meth is a bit mysterious. Located in Box Canyon Place, the 3,560 square-foot house is in the same neighborhood where White and Pinkman cook under the pretense of pest control.

The listing note says the house was featured in Season 5, when Vamonos Pest was the cover for a meth cooking operation overseen by White.

The exterior of the house isn't the one shown being covered by a fumigation tarp in Season 5's "Hazard Pay" episode (that's a neighboring home) -- but perhaps the cook scene was filmed inside. We're not sure, but if you're looking to break bad for less cash upfront, this ABQ home is being offered for only $289,000.
