Kurtwood Smith broke his own bad with RoboCop’s immortal “bitches leave”

Aaron Paul is famous for saying “bitch” an awful lot in Breaking Bad, but Kurtwood Smith was totally bitchin’ it up 27 years ago in Paul Verhoeven’s original RoboCop.

Smith played the wimpy looking but nasty-as-hell villain Clarence Boddicker with great gusto; he virtually stole the show from Peter Weller’s titular crimefighter.

One of the greatest moments in celluloid “bitch-tory” comes when Boddicker barges into the house where sleazeball RoboCop designer Bob Morton (Miguel Ferrer) is doing blow with two hookers and sternly suggests that “bitches leave“.

Later in that same scene he uses his tongue to lasciviously latch on to the pin of the high-tech grenade that blows the kneecapped Morton to smithereens.

A remake of Robocop opens in Vancouver tomorrow, but Kurtwood Smith isn’t in it.
