SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man says, "If we had been pleasured, I think we would have known about it." A man says, "I do my best work down below" (referring to working in the sewers) and his wife says, "Oh, yes you do baby." A man says, "I've got an appetite for tails," and a woman says a velour fanny pack is "kinda' sexy." Two men discuss and debate women's shapes (peach shaped vs. bleach bottle shaped). A man talks about his French female aerobics teacher who was very flexible but "didn't have enough soft spots." A man confesses that he has seen his friend's wife nude and that sometimes he "thinks about her." A man says to another man, "give your man some love" and holds out his arms (nothing sexual is suggested).
► Women wear low-cut dresses and tops that reveal cleavage, and women wear short dresses that reveal their thighs. A man gets into bed with his wife: she is wearing a tank top and they snuggle and sleep.
► A man and a woman kiss, and a man leans over a sofa to kiss the person he thinks is his wife but it is his mother-in-law and she calls him a pervert.
► A bus driver admires a woman standing on a sidewalk, he slams on the brakes, two taxis behind the bus swerve, and the driver backs the bus up, gets out, dances around the woman, and invites her into the bus for a ride. Two men admire a woman walking on a street.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We hear a dog whimpering in a dumpster, and a man pulls the dog out just as heavy debris falls from a chute into the dumpster. A man burns items in a barrel, and he reaches into the flames to retrieve a card.
► Two men climb down a fire escape, it breaks, they hang from a rail, they drop and land on another section unharmed.
► A man shoves another man in a fit of jealousy. A pool ball bounces off a table and hits a man in the head, he falls over onto the floor, gets up and charges toward the men responsible; we then see them outside the pool hall with their jackets twisted around them. A man chases another man along a street. A man tries to close a door on a man who struggles to push his way back in. A man falls over a sofa and lands on the floor (he's OK), a man falls off a piano bench (he's OK), and a man hits his head on a drain pipe.
► A bus driver admires a woman standing on a sidewalk, he slams on the brakes, and two taxis behind the bus swerve. A man breaks a hole in a wall with a hammer.
► A man yells at a man and accuses him of ruining his life. A man yells at his wife, they yell at each other. A mother-in-law is very insulting to her son-in-law.
► A woman asks, "Should I cut him?" about a man who is trying to persuade two women to make a deal with him.
► Two men walk through a sewer, and one falls under the dirty water. A man siphons gas from a car, gets some in his mouth and he spits it out. A man picks his nose and puts what he finds in a trophy.
