The first time Eddie and the Cruisers appeared of TV, you couldn't say "hell," or at least couldn't say it in the time slot when the movie was shown. Now, if you haven't seen Eddie and the Cruisers, it's about a band who had an album called A Season in Hell, which got mentioned over and over again. In the edited version, they just blanked out the word "hell," without replacing it with anything (like, I don't know, "a season in Hades"? just, something). So every time the mentioned the title, it was "A season in [silence]." The silence lasted exactly as long as it took the character to mouth the word "hell."

It was annoying.
