6. Scene of Monsha grousing about the loss of his leave and his hot date while taking a swig from his whiskey bottle cut.
7. Scene of Monsha running down the boarding stairs and assaulting a group of women to the dismay of his comrades cut.
8. Monsha's "You're the woman of my dreams, my fantasy come true" cut.
9. Mora's "Apparently he just felt up all the girls..." changed to "Apparently he just asked out all the girls...".
10. Burning's "You jerks! I can't believe that you're all still alive" changed to "You guys! I can't believe that you're all still OK".

Well it seems most of the edits for this episode centered around Lt. Monsha. Now who didn't see that coming. Plus the usual carnage reduction in the aftermath of the Torrington attack. These are becoming some of the longest lists I've ever done for a single series. Well this should help. Given how often it happens I will no longer be charting substitution of "For Pete's sake" for "For Christ's sake". I trust you to recognize that change since it appears to be a given.
