The original “pillow talk” scene had Marla saying “I want to have your abortion”. When this was objected to by Fox 2000 Pictures President of Production Laura Ziskin, David Fincher said he would change it on the proviso that the new line couldn’t be cut. Ziskin agreed and Fincher wrote the replacement line, “I haven’t been fucked like that since grade school”. When Ziskin saw the new line, she was even more outraged and asked for the original line to be put back, but, as per their deal, Fincher refused.
If you have 2 and a half hours of nothing else to do, I encourage you to watch this video. It’s about a comedian from New York who moves to Ireland in an attempt to learn Irish in a year. His Irish becomes good enough for him to make a stand-up routine about it. He has a great attitude, he’s incredibly determined and industrious, and he makes a lot of hilarious jokes about his journey learning Irish. I would love for the opportunity to attempt to learn a language in the way he does.
