There are this sentences in a book.
I can't understand red "that".
Please explain in detail.
Perhaps "a coffee break"?

I thought that in those movies and television shows when they talk about having a coffee break that they should have a masturbation break.
But then again, I think this would decrease productivity.

The red 'that' is superfluous. The earlier 'that' is sufficient.
Let's consider a simpler example:
'I thought that when they talk about a coffee break they should have a tea break instead.'
It would be wrong to insert another 'that' after 'break'.

Please note that a better title would have been A coffee break.
