Ahhh... So its not part of the Norma scene after all. Might it just be a publicity shot?


Looks like it.

- Norma argues with her mother, while Hank and Ernie plan their “hunting” trip.

- Wheeler & Tim and Tom's Taxidermy. (in the 'Guide' book)
- Josie(’s double) in the Red Room.

So we can assume those scenes were filmed. So what all do we know were actually filmed?

Great list, Ross!

The only one on this list that I seem to remember for sure wasn't filmed is the one of Leland dancing with his secretary in episode 4. Didn't Lesli Linka Glatter say she was going to play that role, and she had the costume and everything, but they decided at the last minute not to film it? I think that was at the USC thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the missing scripted scenes in the David Lynch episodes weren't filmed. So many of the scripted scenes in his episodes seem to change considerably from what was on the page and there are so many stories of him changing things on the spot if he felt like it. But another thing at the USC panel last year -- didn't Harley Peyton or David Patrick Kelly or somebody say that David wanted his episode #2 to be two hours long because he shot so much footage for it and didn't want to have to cut it down?

Thanks for the comprehensive list. Most sound like they were cut for the right reason, but a few caught my eye:

Donna promts Doc Hayward to tell her that Maddy has been killed by the same killer.
The show needed more scenes with people talking about Maddy after her death. They missed a big opportunity there.

Josie(’s double) in the Red Room.
This woulda been neat.

At One-Eyed Jack's, Audrey talks with Nancy about Laura and Ronette.
and At One-Eyed Jack's, Nancy tells Audrey about the mill fire.
These two strike me as the most intriguing on the list, in that they would have added some dimension to the Nancy character, giving us a reason to care about her by tying her and the S2 One-Eyed Jack's plot into the Laura Palmer narrative, the show's golden goose.

I also would have liked seeing more of Audrey - one thing that is unfortunate about early Season 2 (which I mostly love) is the way that Audrey's character loses agency and just becomes a damsel in distress in a heroin daze. It would have been good to see more of her investigation at Jack's, making us more invested in her taking the big risk to be there undercover.

So, apparently Johnny's nurse from the Pilot and Episode 1 is named "Greta" (according to IMDB at least). I could not find any source for it (episodes, credits, novels, online interviews or scripts. I never could find an episode 7 script copy and I also don't have the WIP magazines, though).

I have been told on this forum that it actually probably was from a deleted scene, but it is not in the ones I saw from the official boxsets. Does it ring any bell ?

(also could someone direct me to a transcript/scan of episode 7 if possible, please?)
