* After someone used it in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' FetishFuel page, the phrase "squiggly feelings" became popular on ThisVeryWiki, and, after the Fetish Fuel pages were moved, FetishFuelWiki.

** Also, in the scene where Stantz refers to ObstructiveBureaucrat Walter Peck as "Dickless" and Venkman follows it up with "It's true, your honor..[[JustForFun/SyndicateQuestersUnitedAgainstDeviousness .]] this man has no dick", the lines were changed to "that weasel" and "It's true, your honor... this man is some kind of rodent," respectively.

Can sometimes even be the result of censorship: see the Bowdlerization: Film subpage.

* The Eddie Murphy remake of ''The Nutty Professor'' is a strong example of this, including numerous instances of "face" replacing "ass".

* In ''The Ninth Gate'', a woman who just slept with Johnny Depp's character tells him "don't fuck with me," to which he responds, "I thought I just did." The TV edit changes "fuck" to "mess" making Johnny Depp's response unintentionally bizarre.

* In the censored version of ''The Faculty,'' every use of the word fuck is replaced by "fooey." The hilarity of Elijah Wood and Josh Hartnett hopping up and down over aliens with the stream of dialogue "Fooey fooey fooey! What the fooey just happened? Fooey you!" had me in fits.

* An NBC broadcast of ''The 40-Year-Old Virgin'' dubbed over the term "fuck buddy" with "sex buddy" (which isn't much of an improvement, but whatever...) though the character's lips make it obvious that the line was redubbed. Most other profanity not suitable for over-the-air broadcasts was simply muted.

* When aired on ABC Family, ''Better Off Dead'' gets an edit that results in making no sense at all. In the scene where French-speaker Monique says "testicles" when she means "tentacles," the offending "testicles" is overdubbed with "tentacles." So it's very strange that she says, "tentacles," and Lane corrects her, "No, you mean 'tentacles.'"

* One of [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Sam Jackson's]] earlier roles with a gun was also for language edited on the BBC. In ''ComingToAmerica'', Mr Jackson is heard to say "Why me, why me!" as he rushed out of an aborted robbery. However, you don't have to be a versed lip reader to tell exactly what he said instead of "why".

* The quote on the [[Quotes/UnusualEuphemism Quotes page]] from ''The Lonely Guy'' is a subversion, in which Steve Martin's character is writing a {{romance novel}}. It's supposed to illustrate how awkward he is at romance in general.
