Space Dandy's First Episode Ruins The Sick-Ass Space Burn

A lot of people probably saw Space Dandy on Toonami last night. It was pretty good, although I am outrageously curious as to how they'll continue the series after that ending. My only gripe was, so far, the destruction of the best burn ever to sear the galaxy. [Minor spoilers ahead.]

If you didn't reel from that crazy space-burn, I don't know what to do with you anymore.

Now, in the actual English dub, the last line was changed to "You're an asteroid belt?" which is lame and makes me mildly upset. It's not even censoring; they say ass somewhere else in the episode, though the exact point eludes me. Supposedly the original take went like this:

Whatever happened to the original line, I don't know.

Anyways, did anyone of you guys watch the first episode? Any favorite parts? Go ahead and discuss, just make sure to mark your spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet, yeah?
