But, Benedict takes possession of Danny's ticket and enters the real world and Danny and Jack leave the film to go after him and Danny and Jack set out to stop Benedict from assassinating Schwarzenegger at the film's premiere in New York City, which Benedict believes, if Schwarzenegger dies, there will be no more Jack Slater films.
The word was most likely "fuck".In movies rated PG-13, films are only allowed to use that particular word or a variant of it once. Twice on rare occasions, depending on context; such as the movie Lakeview Terrace or The Martian. It also could have been "Mother-Fucker" as that variant hasn't been spoken in a PG-13 film. Interestingly enough, this film only says the word once at the very end of the movie when Slater's Captain is once again yelling at Slater.The word may also have been "cunt" as it has never been used in a PG-13 film either.
