Deleted Scenes from the TV Series

Postby bosguy1981 » Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:12 pm

Hey all,

I compiled a list of some of the scripted deleted scenes from Twin Peaks (the series, not FWWM) for the heck of it. It's possible I got the episode number wrong on a few of these, and there are some I didn't make note of in the first place. Not sure how many of them were actually filmed. Only a few of them were in the Gold Box DVD set, unfortunately. Would love to see some of these. Know of any others?

1. Lucy and Andy at the donut shop (ep 1) (in Gold Box)
2. By Leo's truck, Shelly and Norma talk about Bobby and Big Ed's Roadhouse fight (ep 1)
3. Leland makes funeral arrangements by phone, breaks down, Ben Horne takes over (ep 1)
4. At the Packard home, Truman and Cooper discuss Andrew Packard's death (ep 1)
5. Audrey, Johnny, and Sylvia Horne at hotel, with Dr. Jacoby. (ep 1) (in Gold Box)
6. Cooper and Truman question Dr. Jacoby at the hotel (ep 1) (in Gold Box)
7. Dr. Jacoby dancing in his office as he opens his mail (ep 1)
8. Shelly calls out sick at the diner after Leo beats her up (ep 2)
9. Josie eavesdrops on Catherine making a phonecall to Ben Horne (ep 2)
10. Cooper says goodnight to Truman, and introduces himself to Ben Horne at the hotel (ep 2)
11. Before going to Laura's funeral, Donna and Doc Hayward discuss life and death. (ep 3)
12. Caretaker at the cemetary speaks to Agent Cooper (ep 3)
13. Big Ed lets Sparky take a look at the exercise equipment Nadine destroyed.
14. At the diner, Shelly shows her gun to a concerned Norma.
15. At the Great Northern, Leland dances around with a photo of Laura.
16. James and Big Ed talk about James' mother's problems.
17. Pete talks to Josie at the Great Northern reception (before Josie sneaks into Ben's office?)
18. Jerry Horne playing a game at the One Eyed Jack's casino
19. Jerry Horne deals with a jealous Hepa (in Gold Box)
20. Alternate news reports about the burning mill and Leo Johnson's shooting from Cyril Ponds (ep 8 )
21. Truman visits Shelly at the hospital to tell her Leo's been shot (ep 8 )
22. At the diner, Norma and Hank discuss getting flowers for Shelly (ep 8 )
23. At One-Eyed Jack's, Audrey talks with Nancy about Laura and Ronette (ep 8 )
24. At One-Eyed Jack's, Audrey learns of the Packard mill fire
25. Donna argues with Doc Heyward about missing days at school (ep 11)
26. Ben Horne greets Judge Sternwood (ep 12)
27. At the diner, Hank mistakes Tojamura for Jonathan and dumps a plate of food on Tojamura's head
28. Cooper discusses Laura's secret diary and Harold Smith's blood type (ep 14)
29. Norma argues with her mother more, while Hank and Ernie plan a trip (ep 17)
30. At the diner, Cooper tries to lighten Norma's spirits about the bad review from MT Wentz (ep 17)
31. Annie comes to visit Cooper at the Sheriff's station (ep 28)
32. Andy approaches Windom Earle disguised as the Log Lady, has no idea. (ep 28)

There are also lots of scenes that exist with dialog edited out. Such as the scene with Hawk and Cooper (Do you believe in the soul?) Cooper's line 'Laura Palmer didn't have to die...) Also, one of my favorites that still exists is the scene with Pete and Catherine on the bed (Mink Oil) Pete says "I have an idea! We've got nothing to do tomorrow, let's bicker all night!"

There is also a scene where Donna jumps into a lake. Stills exist.

At least one still exists of Annie in a phone booth calling Norma.

There are more examples of course, if I can think of any more I'll update.

Great list. What a shame many of these no longer exist. Would love to see what still does. Wish they would have kept the scene of Doc Hayward talking to Donna about missing school, as all of the kids were shown outside of school at one point. It would have been cool if they had mentioned it.

There's also the scene with James' mother, which was cut twice.

And I'm guessing the Annie phonebook scene would have been a cutaway to the scene where Norma talks to her on the phone from the diner.

I'm 99% sure that's the case.

I can confirm that more Picnic footage does exist.

Which would have moved Annie's first appearance an episode earlier.

Episode 9:

15. INT. BLUE PINE LODGE - DAY

Meanwhile, Cooper and Albert continue. Truman spectates as before.

ALBERT
We need a look at Catherine Martell's will.

COOPER
Who stood to benefit from her death?

ALBERT
Who gets the mill? Or what's left of it.

COOPER
Life insurance.

ALBERT
I'll run the policy for beneficiaries.

Albert turns to Truman, sneers at his silence.

ALBERT
Don't be shy, Prince of Yokels. You too can participate in
the investigatory process.

Truman rises. Cooper grabs him by the arm. Just then: Pete interrupts.

PETE
(eyes on Albert)
Excuse me, boys. Coffee. Piping hot.

ALBERT
(muttered)
Morons and mooncalves, everywhere I go.

Pete carries a wooden tray into view. He speaks as he sets and pours coffee for four.

PETE
When I met Catherine, she was dating a fellow named
Rodney Pocquet. French-Canadian millionare's son.
Rich as Croesus. Rodney never said it, but he looked
down on me. I know he did. And why not? Rodney in
his fine summer suits. Me in my overalls and boots. I
never minded all that much.
(beat)
Until he started talking rude to me. Like I wasn't even
there. Rodney Pocquet hurt my feelings. He embarrassed
me in front of my friends. That made me mad.

Pete pauses, sets down the coffee pot. Albert wonders.

ALBERT
(with a sigh)
Is there a point to this insensate ramble?

PETE
Well, yes. There is. I hiked up to Rodney's big house.
And I socked him on the jaw. Rodney never talked that
way to me again.

Albert looks to Cooper and Truman. He knows what's coming.

ALBERT
Not again.

They nod. And Pete floors Albert with a slow right cross to the jaw.

Episode 18:

20. INT. COOPER'S ROOM - LATE AFTERNOON

Cooper stands at his window, tape machine in hand.

COOPER
Diane, I am standing at the window of my room at the
Great Northern, looking down at the wedding of Dougie
Milford and his youthful bride. The ceremony appears
quite simple; the groom, commencing his fifth marriage,
has apparently honed the procedure down to the bone.
The reception will be starting shortly and a good deal of
alcohol will undoubtedly be consumed in order to
accomodate our culturally prevelant rally discomfort with
mystery and ritual.
(turns from window, sets down recorder, begins
to dress, speaks while peering in mirror)
Diane, I anticipate your question. I am not down among
the revelers because my mind is burdened with questions:
what's become of Major Briggs? What is the true
significance of the White and Black Lodge? Has the
Major, clearly a man of no small spiritual advancement,
perhaps been attempting to make contact with some
element of these places in his top-secret work? Briggs is a
man of clear eye and deep thought; he sees right through
the illusory texture of this world and fluently reads
beneath it. You might meet a handful like him in a
lifetime. But if what Hawk has related to me about the
Black Lodge is true, even a man of Briggs' considerable
fortitude would be tested to his ultimate limits.
(sits down on the bed)
In an even darker corner of my thoughts is my old partner,
Windom Earle, the man who, prior to his utter mental
and emotional collapse, burned with a brilliance I doubt
I will ever see the equal of. Add to that the things I've
witnessed here at Twin Peaks: the tremendous evil forces
that linger on the periphery of this genuine, spirited little
town. The darkness Laura Palmer submitted to. The
vortex that swallowed and consumed Leland Palmer ...
Diane, as a human being learns and matures, one's
experiences grow proportionately more rich and
mysterious. Perhaps the questions I now seek answers to
lie beyond the old perameters. Beyond my life at the
bureau.

The phone rings. He clicks off. Picks up.

COOPER (CONT'D)
Cooper ... yes, Denise ... I'll be right down.

He hangs up, stands to put his coat on, clicks on the recorder one more time.

COOPER (CONT'D)
Diane, when I've got a bit more time, remind me to tell
you about Agent Bryson ...

From Episode 27: (Pretty sure this was filmed as the scene was scheduled on a call sheet)

ACT FOUR

FADE IN:

22. EXT. BLACK LAKE AIRPORT - DAY

Near sunset. A taxi sporting the sign "Tim and Tom's Taxidermy" and bearing a huge set of antlers on its roof rolls up to the lone jet on the runway. A voice is heard inside the taxi:

VOICE
Straight... hold... steady... stop.

The taxi jerks to a stop in front of the jet. A piece of luggage falls to the runway, followed by Wheeler, who pulls himself to safety from the back seat where TIM PINKLE sits. His blind brother, TOM, sits behind the wheel in the front seat. Wheeler stares at the blind man. Tim explains his brother.

TIM
He loves to stuff, and he loves to drive. Otherwise he
sleeps.

WHEELER
Well, I am very glad to have the opportunity to be
thankful for arriving here.

TIM
The pleasure is half mine.
(pointing to the antlers on the hood)
Remember, we'll stuff anything.

WHEELER
Right.

Tom shouts to Wheeler as he moves towards the jet.

TOM
Welcome to Twin Peaks.

The taxi pulls away under the direction of Tim's voice- "Right, easy, right again, straight."

If this is the same episode where Nancy is listed in the credits despite not appearing on screen, it'd suggest this was filmed and cut at the last minute. Then again, Galyn Gorg didn't think any of her filmed scenes were cut, so maybe it wasn't shot after all.

I've a horrible feeling that most of the cut scenes have been lost by now, although I would love to see them, especially the ones with characters like Sternwood & Pinkle who don't appear so often.

Oh man, this would have been great to see! You know... there's that scene when Albert is inspecting Cooper's injuries after the shooting and Cooper's irritated with Albert's bad attitude. He tells him, "Unless you want two black eyes on a regular basis..." Think maybe this line was a reference to one black eye from Sheriff Truman and one from Pete Martell?

Josh mentioned a scene from the pilot that was filmed but did not air that he's seen a still to, and I've never heard of the scene. It's some scene where Cooper and Truman are near a gazebo and Cooper is inspecting the bushes. I believe Josh said it was in a version of the pilot script. Anyone know of this scene or have a screen shot? Apparently the gazebo by the large log in Snoqualmie from the credits is where the scene was shot.

It is in the shooting script of the pilot, coming right after the scene in the bank where they find Flesh World in Laura's safety deposit box:

EXT. TOWN SQUARE - EARLY EVENING

Cooper and Steadman walk through the town square, past the gazebo, towards city
hall.

COOPER
(stopping to look at the gazebo)
I've seen these in pictures before, but there is an
actual gazebo, right here in your city square. That
is beautiful.

STEADMAN
(looks at his watch)
You know we're gonna be late for that meeting -

COOPER
(continuing on)
You know, I'm from Philadelphia and a thing like
this, a gazebo, in a town square that is so
meticulously maintained
(head snaps around, noticing another
detail)
- look how these hedges are clipped

They head towards a side entrance in city hall. We MOVE to PICK UP a group of
REPORTERS, milling around between a few television news crew trucks in front of
city hall and STAY WITH one REPORTER, taping a stand-up news report in front of
the hall's imposing mahogany doors.

REPORTER
- I'm speaking to you tonight from in front of
the Town Hall of Twin Peaks, where, just behind
me, the City Council and Chamber of Commerce
have called an emergency session to discuss the
tragic events that have rocked this remote,
peaceful community. How will the community
react? We'll be here to bring that news to you as
soon as it's available to us.


It then cuts to the town hall meeting. (This could have been the first appearance of Cyril Ponds!)

Steadman? Was that Sheriff Truman's original name in the script or does that refer to somebody else?

I'm sorry, but all I can think of is Oprah. :lol:
