There were probably 2 versions
Because I had the luck to see the play already in the New Year's Day in 1971 in the television (ZDF) and to record in the audio tape recorder, has struck me that with all repetitions (and it gave them, even if other is maintained) another version was emitted, presumably because the original version was too piquant at a place for relations at that time in the 70s. With approx. 4:55-minute playing time there sits because Miss Weguscheit on the corner of his desk. He: "Yes, where do you sit then?" (a). One finds this question in all repetitions and on the videopublication. However, in the first performance in 1971 Heinz Erhardt still said drastically: "Leave that Petting!" (b). This was probably too "hot" for the persons responsible in the ZDF. Because, besides, in the first version the dialogue (a) is absent completely, is to be supposed that it could have concerned another performance or maybe a live broadcasting which is not identical with the magnetic video recording of the repetitions.
