2) Togusa's "Shit!" as he jumps out of the car during the murder video muted.

3) Batou's "Shit!" as the new murder report of a seventh murder comes in muted.

4) Batou's "Dickhead!" as he grabs the CIA guy and slams him into a utility pole muted.

5) Batou's "You piece of shit!" after hearing of the CIA plan to retrieve Marco muted.

Actually I am surprised at the minimal editing of what was a very disturbing episode. I also find it interesting that the only visual edit was to conceal a woman's breasts. The skinned corpses of women and children they had no problem with. Seems the old joke about not being able to show a man fondling a woman's breast but being able to show him cutting it off is almost literally true. Still, this episode stands as a landmark of just how far Adult Swim has come since its inception. Let's hope they keep evolving.
