    Watching it on HBO Signature right now. As Keanu Reeves was telling Glenn Plummer (the owner of the Jaguar) to write a note to show to the bus driver, I anticipated another chuckle at a sign I remembered as saying "Bom on Bus."

    When the note flew out of his hands and stuck to the windshield of the bus, it said "Bomb on Bus."

    Did I remember it wrong (I swear it was one of my favorite moments of comic relief), or is it possible a version was shot with "Bomb" spelled correctly, and this is the version HBO is showing? Does anyone else remember it being "Bom on Bus" in the original?

    Yes, I'm bored.

    For some reason I think that was an entirely different movie.

    That's what I first thought after seeing the scene again, but ... now I really think it was this movie. Damn. This is going to bug me all night.

    Or at least until the end of the movie. ;)

    I just remember someone writing that down on a piece of paper and then showing it to the driver and the driver cussing/berating them for not being able to spell bomb and pointing out that the bomb looked like an apple. Or something along those lines.

    And now that I thought about it, I'm pretty sure it was The Last Boy Scout

    Damn. You're right.

    From imdb:

    [Hallenbeck and Dix are trying to tell the bodyguards in a car about a bomb]
    Joe Hallenbeck: Now what are you doing?
    Jimmy Dix: I'm drawing them a picture.
    Joe Hallenbeck: What's that?
    Jimmy Dix: It's a bomb.
    Joe Hallenbeck: It doesn't look like a bomb, it looks like an apple with lines coming out of it. What are they gonna say, "don't open the briefcase, it's full of fresh fruit"?
    Jimmy Dix: Do you want to draw the damn thing?
    [Dix shows Hallenbeck the draw of a bomb with "bom" written below]
    Jimmy Dix: Happy?
    Joe Hallenbeck: Are you kidding me?
    Jimmy Dix: [shows the drawing to the bodyguards] Always criticizing my shit. I can't do nothing right.
    Jimmy Dix: [the bodyguards shoot at them] Oh, shit!
    Joe Hallenbeck: I forgot to tell you. "Bom" means "fuck you" in Polish.
    Jimmy Dix: Hey, that's not funny, man. I almost bought it there!
    Joe Hallenbeck: Tragic loss to the art world, let me tell ya.

    At least I can stop thinking about it now. Thanks. :)

    I was just about to post that for you LMAO. Looking through the one-liners from that movie makes me chuckle. Some good lines in there.

    I was just watching the original Star Wars on HBO, and I remember Han Solo shooting Greedo first. But not now. Is it possible there is a version where Greedo shoots first, and that's what HBO is showing right now?

    Quit making fun of me (and being so funny while doing so).

    That just reminded me of the whole LOTR/Star Wars dialogue in Clerks II.

    I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around a city, keeping its speed over fifty and if its speed dropped, it would explode! I think it was called ... "The Bus That Couldnt Slow Down."
