Due to its big success in the USA, a much more defused version of the movie was produced there in order to reach a wider audience with a lower age rating. The R-rated original version was in the cinemas in 1977, just one year later the new PG-rated version was highly advertised for. Censored were - who would have thought so - scenes depicting violence and sex as well as a lot of dialogues which refer to one of these topics and which are full of all kinds of swearwords. For the rough language is always present during the whole movie, there had to be altered a lot, which resulted in over 100 changes due to censoring. A very detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
Annette was NOT raped by Joey. Despite being under the influence of drugs she willingly got into the backseat with him and never actually told him to stop. Since Joey is not a mind reader he had no way of knowing that Annette didn't want to have sex anymore. However she was raped by Double J because she clearly told him "she didn't want to do this" and was showing clear signs of resistance.
It is never directly stated however there are several possibilities:1) Bobby was so completely overwhelmed with his personal problems (Pauline being pregnant, his friends not respecting him, etc.) that he started acting recklessly as a cry for help or to get attention, however he lost his footing and fell to his death2) Bobby acted recklessly so that he could get Tony's attention, then when Tony did not have an answer for why he "never called him" he fully realized that his friends had no interest in helping him with his issues that he decided to jump.3) Bobby was deeply troubled and made up Pauline as a way to get attention. When he realized his friends didn't seem to care that his "girlfriend" was pregnant he decided to act recklessly on the bridge knowing full well he would probably slip and fall to his death.
