    Okay, I think I must be going mad. I just watched Back to the Future III and I was disappointed that the quote by Mad Dog Tannen,

    "What kind of pussy name is Clint Eastwood?"

    was replaced by, "What kind of stupid name is Clint Eastwood?" So I did searches on HTF, and then on Google, and I can't find anything. IMDb even has the memorable quote with the word "stupid." I know I'm not making this

    pussy

    quote up, right?? Does anyone else remember it?

    As far as I can remember (and I saw BTTF III in the theater a long time ago), that saying with "stupid" has always been the correct one. In fact, I am watching the film right now and there aren't any lip-sync problems at all (Tannen, in fact, does say stupid). [​IMG]

    Brian, what are you doing posting on HTF when you're in the middle of watching a DVD?! Anyway, I noticed too that there weren't any lip sync problems. I figured it was an alternate take of the scene for the "TV" version, and I was hoping that it was mistakenly included on the DVD like the widescreen formatting problems. I guess I made this quote up or was thinking of something else. Too bad too, because I think it's funnier my way! And all these years I've been saying what kind of p***y name is Clint Eastwood? whenever someone mentions his name...

    I myself don't recall the version you describe. It's always been "stupid". In fact, the term you recall would be very out-of-place back in the old west! [​IMG]
    Sure your memory isn't something a high school kid said at the time, misremembering? The term is definately more from the 1980's than the 1880's! [​IMG]

    Yep, i've watched this film countless times and it's always been "What kind of stupid name is that?".
