Alan Bell said:
Alexa 'Lex' Woods: [Rousseau is loading a pistol] Seven seasons on the ice, and I've never seen a gun save someone's life.
Adele Rousseau: I don't plan on using it.
Alexa 'Lex' Woods: Then why bring it?
Adele Rousseau: Same principle as a condom. I'd rather have one and not need it, then need it and not have one.

Somewhat gratuitous mention of a condom, but technically that is not a discussion about a man I think.

luminum disagreed with the rating and said:
This shouldn't be dubious at all. A condom is not a man, nor is a man mentioned. Condoms are a thing. And frankly, for all we know, she could be talking about a female condom rather than a penile one.

It should be a clear pass.
