When they first broadcast The Godfather on network TV they had to change Sonny's (James Caan's) line

"I don't want him coming out of the bathroom with his dick in his hand"


(referring to Michael Corleone's getting the stashed gun and shooting Sollozo and Captain McCluskey in the restaurant. In one of the most subtle bowdlerizationbs I know of, they changed the line to:

"I don't want him coming out of the bathroom with a stick in his hand."


It sounds almost the same. And it actually makes sense, unlike so many other cleaning jobs.
