Ok, now I know there are at least three versions. Maybe more. I've never seen the n-word version, but I've seen a version that includes all of the rest of the above and also a version that includes some of the above (e.g., the fishermen, the Dickens/Austen, the two little girls) but omits some of the above (e.g., the film clips and stand-up comic). --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
