Added DiffLines:

* In the 1966 film version of ''Theatre/WhosAfraidOfVirginiaWoolf'', starring Creator/ElizabethTaylor and Creator/RichardBurton, Martha's line "Screw you!" is changed to "Goddamn you!" Other expressions, such as "hump the hostess", "Up yours", and "monkey nipples" are kept. In the 2005 revival with Bill Irwin and Creator/KathleenTurner, the expression "Screw you" is replaced by the stronger "Fuck you!"

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/TheProducers'', during "The King of Broadway", when Max Bialystock translates, poorly, some Yiddish given to him by Yiddish theatre veteran Boris Thomashefsky, he claims that he said, "When you're down and out and everyone thinks you're finished, that's the time you gotta stand up on your two feet and shout, 'Who do ya hafta '''fuck''' to get a break in this town?!'"
** Fun fact: That line originates from an ad-lib by the original portrayer of Max, Creator/NathanLane.

* At the end of the play Oleanna by David Mamet, you can hear what is quite possibly the best line uttered by any character anywhere. The teacher, John, holds a chair above his head, aiming it at his former student Carol and utters the line, "I wouldn't touch you with a ten foot pole, you little cunt!".

* Sadly [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerized]] in ''Theatre/WestSideStory'': Stephen Sondheim originally wrote the last line of "Gee, Officer Krupke" as "Gee, Office Krupke, FUCK YOU!" but was forced to change it to the very silly "Krup you!", much to his chagrin at the time.

* The last act of ''NixonInChina'' has perhaps the first such example in the history of opera: "We'll teach these motherfuckers how to dance!" The fact that said line is sung by a coloratura soprano makes it all the better.
* Cathy uses this at least twice during ''TheLastFiveYears'', specifically in the songs "See I'm Smiling" and "Climbing Uphill":
