I saw the episode but I am sure he did not say "Aw fuck off, Stan." I
recall being amused by the character saying a word very similar to the
dread F-word. While I would like to defer to your taped copy, I think I
would've sat up and noticed if that was actually what was said. Also, I
don't think there's any way a network would allow it.
