Alternate Versions

The new broadcast television print, as seen on Spike TV, not only removes all references to Debbie being pregnant, but it also removes many of Chuck and Chili's opening scenes to omit the minor marijuana references. In fact, the first time we see either of them is when the whole group is standing over the old man in the road. See more »
