Not that judgment has been his best friend for five years, though.
Walt had a point about Jesse. What's he going to do now? Video games, go carts, partying and getting back on drugs? He didn't seem to be having too much fun doing that. Kind of like that old Twilight Zone episode where the gangster dies and he had anything he wanted: girls, booze and won every time he gambled. Pretty soon he got sick of it and asked why heaven sucked so much. His guardian "angel" told him he wasn't in heaven but in hell and had to do all that stuff for eternity. If Jesse doesn't get back with Walt, he's going to be stuck doing that same crap all the time. Of course if he gets back with Walt he's either going to die or go to prison.
I think Jesse, almost as much as Walt, needs the excitement of being in the meth business.
