Hello, guys and gals! Oh, boy. I wish I had a picture of your stupid faces!
Captain Harris: Mr. Mayor!
Mayor: Hello, Harris, you stupid twit!
(at around 29 mins) When Proctor tries to pull Harris back up into the window washing compartment, Harris grabs onto Proctor's trouser leg. In one shot, you can see Proctor already down to his boxers, before the trouser rip actually happens.
When shown on the FOX TV network, many scenes were added to fill the time. One scene shows Nick Lassard arresting a lady for acting as a car valet so that she can steal cars. The lady is caught but tries to bribe Nick into letting her go; "I can really make it worth your while". Nick apologizes saying she's a nice girl but he can't break the rules in his position as a police officer. One scene has Fackler mopping up a water jug spill from Harris in a previous scene followed by Commandant Lassard receiving a call informing him that the Wilson Heights Gang just robbed the Wilson Heights Bank. The scene ends with Proctor attempting to dry Harris' wet clothes by fanning him with a posterboard. One scene has the Police Academy team making a phone call to the Mayor about the Wilson Heights gang having the blueprints to shut down all the power to the city. The scene channges to show the Mayor discussing his thoughts to the officers followed by his making a secret deal with Captain Harris. In the scene where Jones is performing impressions at the Comedy Pub, there's an added scene of him asking if the mike is real and then doing an impression of "garbage trucks passing by at 5 a.m." where he makes a small rumbling sound to resemble a truck then makes it louder by adding screeches and then screaming in the voice of the garabage men, "YEEEEEEHA!!!!!!! WAKE UP STUPID!!!!" One scene has Hooks trying to find a little boy's dog named Pokey. She looks down an alley and sees a small patch of fur and says in her tiny voice "Pokey?". The dog doesn't come out so she then shouts, "YOU COME OUT NOW YOU MANGY MUTT!!!!". When the dog comes out, it's revealed that he's gigantic! Hook's grabs him and yelps, "YOU'RE POKEY?!". She puts a leash around the dog but the dog drags her around the sidewalk. In theatrical trailers for the film, during Harris' fall from the window washer's scaffold, there was a shot of him upside down, looking at a reflection of himself in a window, and screaming "OH HELP ME! I'LL HELP THE HOMELESS!!!!"
