Roxie Hart has quite shocking language in this show, and Billy Flynn has to tell her to tone it down. The conversation goes like so:
Holy s**t! I'm never gotta get this straight!
[Billy Flynn] Pipe down the swearing. Look, from here on, you say nothing wrong. Now try it

Rule #5 Pipe down the swearing
My kids use language quite similar to that of Ms. Roxie Hart. While I don't allow it, I wouldn't say it is my primary concern. They hear it at home, in their neighbohoods, and from each other. It isn't going to work to tell them not to swear. It does work, or it least more useful to teach them when it's okay to swear, when to pipe it down, and when not to.
