When the people from the bad place come Trevor is seen wearing a copy of the shirt that Eleanore's friend had made on earth and the other people say the b word. In the first episode though Chidi says that they are prohibited from saying curse words which is why she says bench, ash, and fork instead. They should not have been able to say what they said.

Eleanor Shellstrop: I just want to say once more for the record, that this whole good/bad system is bullshirt. There should be a medium place for people like me who kind of sucked, but in, like, a fun, chill way.
