T1 alternate scene
When aired on USA and SCI-FI, the following alterations were made: when both Terminator and Reese arrive from the future, the supposed dirty mumblings of the witnesses (a garbage truck driver and a bum) have been edited. When the Terminator visits the first wrong Sarah, his original scene of him shooting her six times is changed to one shot with the BANG cut out. The scenes where Kyle hotwires the cars is edited, as is the scene of Sarah waitressing in the restaurant and a kid drops a spoonful of food down her blouse.
When aired on TV, many alterations are made. Like when Terminator confronts the punks and orders them to turn over their clothes, Bill Paxton's response of "Fuck you, Asshole" is changed to "Eat this, scum!" The scene of Terminator ripping out the heart of one of the punks is removed and just shows him picking him up the cuts to Terminator glaring at another punk who wilfully turns over his clothes. When Terminator first arrives and he walks towards the edge of the building to see the city, the camera is moved upwards to avoid his buttox, Reese's is also edited. The execution of Ginger is removed, instead just shows the one shot Terminator fired at her then she goes flying. Vukovich's remark of "Like shit, boss" is changed to "Like you've been dead for a week." When Terminator knocks out a cop and takes his car, the part of Terminator banging the cop's head against the car is removed and just shows him throwing the cop into the street.
Removal of violence/gore and brual scenes that are not allowed to be shown to a younger audience on TV airings.
