There is a Japanese news report after the Action News Georgia segment where the female Japanese anchor gets slapped by her male counterpart for mistakenly calling Ted a "rabbit".
Donny's flashback is revealed and included. In the theatrical version, what he describes to Ted about his fascination is only spoken.
Murphy's talk about his connection with Tom Skerritt is extended with him talking about the privileges being with him.
There's a little extension of John's "So bad, but so good" commentary where both him and Ted started singing part of the Flash Gordon theme song. John then exclaims, "Fuck yeah!"
In bed with Lori, John has a replacement line, "I'm a fucking classy broad" and an additional line, "I've been crapping out room for it for two days. I mean, I know exactly what I'm going to order." There is also additional dialogue from John once thunder is heard.
In Rex's office room, he takes out his magnifying glass and shows his "root" on the photo. After Lori leaves, he takes a short smell on the chair she sat on.
In the dinner with John and Lori, there is additional dialog by John referring to the Virgina Tech University shooting.
In the theatrical release, Lori sees a pile of feces on the floor while Ted is with four hookers at their apartment. Ted explains that Charene, the Asian hooker, defecated on the floor as part of a "truth or dare" game. In the unrated version, Ted explains that a fifth hooker named Dierdre did the mess and locked herself in the bathroom. Lori is also more furious in this scene.

In the scene where Ted and John watch the 'Cheers' DVD boxed set, Ted Danson's TV interview is longer, with Ted and John interrupting in between.

In the party at Rex's house, Lori's three colleagues have a conversation about Rex's one night stand locations.
In the theatrical version, Ted says that he met Norah Jones at Belinda Carlisle's house. In the unrated version, he says that he met her at a charity event for kids screwed up by a family member, and they had sex at the back room.
After John and Lori drive off to find Ted, Ted tries to escape again but stumbles upon the basement full of tattered teddy bears that belong to Donny.
Near the end, the newly-wed Lori throws a bouquet of flowers. John's co-worker Tanya grabs the bouquet before an unhappy Tami-Lynn beats her up.
I am a huge fan of Seth McFarlane, and his brilliant shows Family guy and American Dad! I couldn't be more excited for this film to come out. Every time the commercial came on, i glued my eyes to the TV. Unfortunately, that may have hyped it up too much for me. It was a funny film, with good jokes, and a simple story line. But i think my head got the best of me, making me think it was going to be one of the funniest movies i'd ever seen. The commercials stole all the really good jokes, as it always seems to do. However, i do hope Seth McFarlane decides to make another film. He's a true comic talent, who isn't afraid to take some risks. Think about it, Mark Wahlberg staring in a comedy about a man who's best friends with a drugged out, foul mouthed teddy bear. Easily could've been a disaster, but it wasn't. It was enjoyable, and I wouldn't mind seeing it again.
