"Seinfeld" as one OF the best — if not the best — sitcoms of all time.

The hit NBC show lasted for nine years, but thankfully introduced us to the original squad goals, a la Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine. While it's tough to narrow down a favorite episode (almost impossible), one of our favorite characters was Dr. Tim Whatley.

You may remember Tim as Jerry's dentist who converted to Judaism for the jokes, or the guy who re-gifted the label maker Elaine got him for Christmas.

Bryan Cranston stopped by "Live with Kelly" and talked about his famous role on the show, letting fans in on a secret from set. The "Breaking Bad" star reveals that the moment his character, Tim, takes a hit of the nitrous oxide he's about to give to Jerry was all thanks to an electrician adjusting the lights!

The Emmy award winner goes on to explain that while prepping for the scene, the man adjusting the lights suggested that he take a hit of the gas before he gave it to Jerry. And with that, comedic gold was born. He's goes on to explain that they had to do the take at least a dozen times because Jerry Seinfeld kept laughing. To be honest, we would be, too.
