  • After the scene of Peter giving Quagmire a cavity search, there is an extra scene in the uncensored versions where Peter, Quagmire, Mort, and Cleveland are in a room, each drinking from a cup. Joe, explains that the four are part of a test to see if they can identify traces of PCP in the coffee they’re drinking. This causes Peter, Cleveland, and Mort to become paranoid over who drank the PCP and accuse each other of freaking out, but the real culprit turns out to be Quagmire when he wonders why his arm has so much skin on it and rips it off without feeling any pain.
  • In the scene where the guys are sitting in Peter's living room after becoming cops, and Joe is looking out the window, allegedly watching his wife Bonnie undress, it would be physically impossible for Joe to watch Bonnie undress from Peter's front window, being that Joe and Bonnie live next door to Peter, not across the street.

That’s what we’re going to do together,” to edit out the extra mentions of the word.
