7 Hilarious Ways Badass Movie Lines Got Ruined by TV Censors

We understand that when movies air on television some pieces of dialogue need to be changed. However, sometimes the "edited for television" dialogue is either ridiculously nonsensical or way worse than what was originally said (not mutually exclusive).

#7. Kill Bill

The original line: My name's Buck, and I'm here to fuck.

Move over, Kierkegaard.

In Kill Bill, Uma Thurman is left comatose after being shot by David Carradine (it is unclear whether the coma was a result of the bullet or of having to look at his dehydrated pork chop face for longer than three seconds). In any case, she wakes up briefly to a male nurse named Buck delivering this line as a rape manifesto.

The fixed line: My name's Buck, and I'm here to party.

Buck's truck also changes:

This throws Buck into an entirely different light. Maybe he's a kind-hearted man who tries to brighten the lives of those poor souls in his care by taking them to pizza parties in the Party Wagon. Either way, the line doesn't even rhyme anymore, and that's the real disservice being done here.

#6. Die Hard: With a Vengeance

The original line: I hate niggers.

A mad bomber demands that drunken supercop John McClane wear this blatantly racist sandwich board in the middle of Harlem, lest another bomb be set off. McClane is quickly attacked by a street gang, but he is rescued by Samuel L. Jackson.

The fixed line:

Now McClane just kind of looks like a crazy hobo, which makes the guys who try to kill him seem extremely oversensitive.

#5. Weird Science

The original line: There's going to be sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, chips, dips, chains, whips. You know, your basic high school orgy type of thing. I'm not talking candle wax on their nipples ...

We don't know, that sounds more like middle school to us.

Nerdy high school students Gary and Wyatt create a sex genie using a Barbie doll and a computer, because this was science in the 1980s. She inadvertently spills the beans on a party by delivering that line to Gary's parents, because she doesn't have a "filter," and moreover, she does not seem to understand what "statutory" means.

The fixed line: There's going to be love, drinks, rock 'n' roll, chips, dips, chicks, peaches. You know, your basic high school ordinary type of thing. I'm not talking candle wax on their pimples ...

The edits make the party sound intensely more disturbing and no less illegal, particularly the inexplicable pairing of girls and peaches.

#4. Dumb and Dumber

The Original Line: Right on my ass, after you kiss it!

It's the perfect response to literally any question.

Jim Carrey, renouncing his friendship with Jeff Daniels over Turbulence's Lauren Holly, tells him exactly where to sign the exit papers.

The Fixed Line: Right on my sandwich, after you kiss it!

The selection of the word "sandwich," which doesn't match any of Jim Carrey's lip movements, is even more confusing when you consider that a sandwich does not appear anywhere in this scene. Also, instructing Jeff Daniels to notarize his invisible lunch doesn't make any fucking sense.
