During the preview montage before the opening credits, there are two lines from a speech by Shorofsky which does not appear in the final episode, namely ""They come in here with their reports, and they treat us like digits." and "They end up pitting friends against each other". This speech would have been said after the fight between Danny and Leroy. According to the original shooting script, the complete speech ran as follows: "They come in here with their budget reports, and they treat us like digits. They have to do that, because everyone knows digits do not bleed when 'cut'. And the final result is that they end up pitting friends against each other. They are without merit. But they are winning, damn it,... they are winning." See more »

Leroy Johnson: So don't go tellin' me what's good for me and what ain't.
Elizabeth Sherwood: 'Isn't', not 'ain't.

Elizabeth Sherwood: Sorry, English teachers never rest.
