More quotes from The Return of the Living Dead

Trivia: The actress who plays Trash is actually wearing a prosthetic rubber "crotch piece" during her strip scene (and subsequent scenes), which one of the producers insisted on, because he felt full frontal female nudity was "too much" for the film. Ironically, most of the shots of her are from a distance, and her under-region is hard to see, so in the end, the prosthetic was not really necessary. As confirmed in DVD commentary.
