Aaron Paul reveals he improvised the only ‘Yeah bitch’ in ‘El Camino’

On Tuesday’s episode of Conan, star of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Aaron Paul revealed that he improvised the film’s lone “yeah, bitch” — because Vince Gilligan apparently forgot to write one in. 

“I think maybe third or fourth time I read [the script for El Camino] I was like, ‘Wait, there’s no… there’s no ‘bitch’ in here!'” said Paul. 

It would have been a shame not to have the character’s most iconic catchphrase in the movie, but Paul was able to slip it in organically while filming. “I never improvised a ‘bitch’ before. Every ‘bitch’ you saw, it was a scripted ‘bitch.'” 

But this one was improvised: “It just came out, I didn’t even mean for it to happen.”

It was meant to be.

Conan O’Brien also asked Paul about the Breaking Bad film’s intriguing subtitle. O’Brien pointed out that it’s called “A Breaking Bad Movie” rather than “The Breaking Bad Movie”, leaving the door open for more films set in Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s world.

Of course Paul couldn’t say whether there are any plans for such films, but he acknowledged that the choice of words is a loophole. “It now gets me guessing, like, ‘Is it? Is that it?’
