Different conversation in both versions after Tuck knocked at the door.


Tuck: "Here's were my head is at. We start with a blowjob. Which most girls find rewarding because I turn what is normally a chore into a tutoring session. You know, my own special Head Start program. Even got Chloraseptic spray. Do that really well, we move on to the nasty stuff. Do some artsy live streaming video. Totally tasteful. Don't worry, I'll get you paid. Easy. Wait, I', sorry. Is this a bad time?"
Rachel: Yeah."
Tuck: "I accept your rebuke of my advances. But for future reference, yould you give me a reason why?"
Rachel: How about 10?"
Then the camera goes back pretty fast and the number "10" is displayed.


Tuck: "I tried like a motherfucker to follow you up but this door, it does a little thing with the lock when you're inside. Anyway, here's what I'm thinking. We start with a blowjob. Yeah. I mean, obviously, you know? And most girls find it rewarding the way I do it because I turn what is normally a chore into, like, a training session. It's like my own special Head Start program. Even got Chloraseptic spray. Do that really well, we move on to the nasty stuff. Bring my buddies over, maybe take some "artsy" pictures, you know? Do some artsy live streaming video. Totally tasteful. Don't worry, I'll get you paid. Easy. That way you could get that can opener fixed lipo the back end, maybe refurbish the balcony. Wait, I', sorry. Is this a bad time?"
Rachel: Yeah."
Tuck: "Real quick, yes to bad timing or yes, you wanna go--?"
Rachel: "Fuck you!"
Tuck: "Exactly"
She shuts the door. Tuck waits and knocks again. Rachel opens and yells at him.
Rachel: Why won't you just die already?"
Tuck: "I accept your rebuke of my advances. But for future reference, yould you give me a reason why?"
Then the camera goes back pretty fast and the number "10" is displayed.

Tuck: "I didn't know it was your sister. If I did, then I wouldn't have sex with her. Okay, but I was drunk, it was dark, and I thought it was you. Oh, she's pregnant too."


Tuck: "Sarah, are you pregnant? I'll just be a minute. You know what, you expect me to swallow that horseshit? Yeah, I'm predictable. Well, then fucking marry me. Didn't see that one coming, did you?"
Rachel: "What are you doing?"
Tuck: "How am I supposed to know it was your sister. Okay, but I was drunk, it was dark, and I thought it was you. Oh, she's pregnant too. Talk to her.

The waiter arrives and wants to know what he could do for them.
