2. (n) The subject of Captain Hook's psychedelic wet dreams contained in scenes from the 1992 film Hook, starring Robin Williams, that were deleted in order to prevent the film from having an X-rating, despite repeated time travel protests from Abraham Lincoln in which he claimed that such removal would needlessly compromise the film's substantial artistic integrity
1. Steve the Municipal Pan Coroner: "While the cause of death remains unknown, one thing is certain, which is that this particular pan is pretty much totally dead, and therefore shall heretofore be referred to as a deadpan."

2. Abraham Lincoln: "Man the director's cut of that movie was so much better than the one that the greedy Hollywood water-downers released to the moronic public. If I were alive today I would probably open up a whole nother can of civil war whoopass over that as well as the fact that they totally edited out Julia Roberts' boobies."
