Venkman's claim in the mayor's office that Walter Peck "has no dick" was changed to call him "some kind of rodent, I don't know which," Zeddmore's claim to have seen "stuff" rather than "shit" that'll turn you white, and Egon's later outburst of "shit" at the Keymaster's disappearance was changed to a milder "oh, no!"
