    Growing up most of the movies I saw were aired on a local station and had to be re-dubbed. So for the longest time all the R- rated movies I saw had the bad language cut out, but I still love to quote them that way from time to time.

    One of my favorites is from Robocop. When the guy who programmed Robo is talking to him he says" You're gonna be one bad mother fucker.", but the re-dub goes "You're gonna be one bad Mother Crusher". I think it works both ways.

    Another line in the movie has the jerk vice-president Dick Jones threatening the guy who made Robocop, Dick Jones mentions all the names he call the president of OCP,"...one time I even called him asshole" but the re-dub is "One time I even called him airhead" OH NO not air head! You monster with your words that cut like razors!

    I love how the re-dubs are so obvious, to the point where the voice over sounds nothing like the actor at all.


    I have to mention Ghostbusters (favorite movie of all time). In the mayors office the line "shut off by dickless here" is sometimes shown on T.V. said as "shut of by wally wick here". The line is not re-dubbed tho, its actually Dan Aykroyd saying the wally wick line. I did not see this version till long after I had seen the original and laughed my ass off at the line.

    Scarface.

    "Lesbian!" = "Lamebrain!"

    "So where'd you get the beauty scar, tough guy? Eatin' pussy?" = "Eatin' pineapple?"

    When I overheard my sister watching a movie, I heard this.

    "I don't give a SPIT about you!"

    My favorite EVER!

    Comes from the TV version of "Dumb and Dumber" The first time I heard this I laughjed my ass off.

    Anyways, it's near the end when they are tied up discussing their friendship... here is how it actually goes..


    Lloyd: You said it, pal. Maybe we're not as good of friends as we thought. I mean, if one beautiful girl can rip us apart, then maybe our friendship isn't worth a damn. Maybe we should call it quits right now.
    Harry: You just tell me where to sign, bud.
    Lloyd: Right on my ass after you kiss it!
    Harry: You kiss mine! Both cheeks, both lips, right here!


    The whole scene is present except for this edit..



    Lloyd: Right on my "SANDWICH!" after you kiss it!


    man I laughed my ass off..it was jim carrey's voice yelling sandwich,... they got this from another mlovie or somewhere earlier I do not remember but it sounds just like him,.. but the way it is said is fricken hillarious.

    A few movies always had "Fuck" replaced with "Forget." So many times I would hear, "Forget you!" Nice.

    But my favorite comes from the censored Running Man. The scene where the old lady is asked which Stalker would win, she votes for Schwarzenegger's character (a Runner). She justified her choice by saying, "I can vote for whoever I choose. And I choose Ben Richards. He's one mean motherfucker."

    The censored version goes, "He's one mean mound of flesh."

    Oh, the pain in my side from that.

    Now that you mentioned Die Hard, there is one line i remember from Die Hard 2. originally John says "Yipee Ki-yay Motherfucker" when he blows up the plane with Col. Stewart, however in the tv version, he says "Yipee Ki-yay Mister Falcon". but what made this edited dub funny was that instead of leaving bruce's voice alone, they re-dub it with a guy who sounds like he's trying to talk like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    I love the re-dubbs for Happy Gilmore! the re-dubb sounds like the actors but it's if as the volume in their voice changed dramatically when saying the new word. They replace ass with head, so instead of "I'm gonna kick your ass" it's "I'm gonna kick your HEAD!!!!" or instead of "You know what else draws a crowd? A golfer with an arm sticking out of his ass." it's "A golfer with an arm sticking out of his HEAD!!!!"

    Speaking of which, one of the funniest exchanges in the movie is dramtically altered when shown on TV because the word "shit" (pardon my french, I don't try and swear that often) is replaced with "scum".

    You can't forget when "Pallies" made its Sunday afternoon network debut.

    This wound up being like what the Sopranos were like when aired on mainstream tv, Mad tv were prophetic;

    Coming to America was mercilessly edited for tv, often cutting entire segments from the actual (now DVD) version. But as for dubbed lines:

    "F--- you!" = "Forget you!" (ouch)

    (again) "F--- you!" "Yes! Yes! F--- you too!"
    ="Shut it, buddy!" "Yes! Yes! The same to you too!"

    "You damn f---!" = "You darn jerk!"

    And the best one:
    "Do you realise I have not had sex since we came to America?"
    = (something along these lines)
    "Do you realise I have not bathed since I came to America?"

    The Thing (1982) -

    Original line: "I'd rather not spend the rest of this winter tied to this fucking couch!!!!"

    Re-dub: "I'd rather not spend the rest of this winter tied to this FLAKING couch!!!!"


    Or the Great Outdoors (with John Candy and Dan Aykroyd), where they replaced every instance of "ass" with "kazoo."

    Hands down, The Big Lebowski.

    Original:
    "You see what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass?"

    Edited for TV version:
    "You see what happens when you find a stranger in the alps?"
