While Knox (Tom Berenger) and Stantin (Sidney Poitier) are cooking out the night after Stantin saves Knox from falling into the gorge, Stantin mistakes the marmot Knox is cooking for rabbit and says that he has eaten rabbit in "lots of places" in the city. Knox quickly corrects him, and Stantin replies, "Marmot? What's a marmot?" Knox says, "A rodent." Stantin gets a queasy look and says, "A RODENT? You mean a rat?" Knox replies, "Kind of a big, hairy rat, yeah." Stantin then gets disgusted and says, "OH SH**!" However, a rabbit is a bigger, hairier member of the rodent family.
