Deleted Scenes – Script to Screen Part 4


Scenes 158-162: Laura’s room. 8:00 that night.

(Laura recalls the one-armed man yelling at her, remembers his ring, remembers the Man From Another Place giving her the ring in her dream, remembers Teresa’s ring, as in the movie.)

DELETED Dialogue:

Flashback to Blue Diamond City Motel room, with Laura and Ronette, as Teresa enters the room.

TERESA:
The guy split.


Teresa sits down between them and brings them close to her in a sexual embrace. Teresa brushes away some hair that has fallen over her face. As she does this, Laura sees the same ring.

TERESA:
I guess it’s just us girls.

Cut back from flashback to Laura’s room.

LAURA (to herself):
The same ring …

Laura is jolted by Bob’s voice.

BOB’S VOICE:
That’s not important. I will tell you what is important. The fan will soon be starting.

LAURA:
Who are you? Who are you REALLY?

BOB’S VOICE:
I am the One who wants to breathe through your nose and taste through your mouth.

END OF DELETED Dialogue

Scenes 163-165: Palmer living room.

(Scenes of Leland pacing in the living room, and flashback to killing Teresa, are as in the movie, with the exception that the script states that Leland kills her in the woods, rather than in the trailer.

[Ed. An interesting bit of trivia is that on the cast and crew call sheets, for the day that they filmed the Teresa Banks murder scene, the location for scene is specified as the Chalfont trailer and NOT Teresa Bank’s trailer. This makes absolute sense as the ring is found by Chester Desmond at the foot of the Chalfont trailer.]

DELETED Scene:

Scene 166: Palmer dining room. Morning.

MISSING CAPTION: TUESDAY – TWO DAYS BEFORE


Laura sits at the dining room table, eating her breakfast. Leland pokes his head in.

LELAND (cheerfully):
Don’t forget: it’s Johnny Horne’s birthday today.

END OF DELETED Scene

[Ed. Confirmed to have been shot. Source: Photographic. Notice the glass of orange juice which would point out that the meal Laura is having is breakfast.]

Scene 167: Laura’s room. Minutes later.

(Laura does her last cocaine, puts the empty packet in her diary, as in the movie.)

Scene 168: High school.

(Scene with Bobby and Laura talking about the “big score” tonight, is as in the movie.)

DELETED Dialogue:


Laura takes off down the hall. Rounding another corner, she sees James coming towards her. James looks around to see if the coast is clear, and seeing it is, moves close to her.

JAMES:
I’ve got to see you.

LAURA:
Not now.

JAMES:
This afternoon?

LAURA:
Okay.

(remembering) Oh god, it’s Johnny Horne’s birthday today.

JAMES:
What about tonight?

LAURA:
I can’t tonight.

JAMES:
What’s going on?

LAURA (freaking out):
I just can’t, James. I can’t do it.

Laura keeps going. Donna comes around next to James. Together they watch Laura walk away.

DELETED Scenes:

Scenes 169-170: Johnny Horne’s Birthday Party


Great Northern Hotel, Benjamin Horne’s office.


Open on Laura’s picture on top of Ben Horne’s desk. Then discover that Leland is staring at Laura’s picture. Wider, we see Ben trying to blow up a large rubber Indian for his son Johnny. Sylvia and Jerry Horne stand nearby supervising. Johnny comes up one inch in front of Leland’s face.

JOHNNY:
Happy birthday, Johnny.

LELAND:
Happy birthday, Johnny.

Johnny moves to one inch in front of Jerry’s face.

JOHNNY:
Happy birthday, Johnny.

JERRY:
Happy birthday, Johnny.

Ben reacts to a huge moccasin print in the middle of the birthday cake in the middle of his office floor.

BEN:
Why did we have to have the party here in my office?

SYLVIA:
Because Johnny wants it in your office. What’s so “private, private” about your office, anyway? Why can’t we have the party in your precious office?


JERRY:
It’s a lovely place for a party, Ben. And look at the new decorations Johnny’s provided.

They look down and see Johnny’s foot completely ringed in white frosting roses. Frosted footprints trail behind him everywhere.

Johnny goes one inch in front of Laura’s picture.

JOHNNY:
Happy birthday, Johnny.

Leland looks again at Laura’s picture. He looks up at Ben.

LELAND (oddly confrontational):
Don’t you have a picture of Audrey, Ben?

That sets Sylvia off again.

SYLVIA:
Don’t you have a picture of your own daughter, Ben? Where’s Johnny’s picture?

(exploding) And where’s MY picture I gave you?

BEN:
At the photographer’s studio getting a gold frame with floral monograms of your birthday and our wedding vows.

Johnny moves one inch in front of Ben.

JOHNNY:
Happy birthday, Johnny.

BEN (trying not to explode):
Happy birthday, Johnny.

JERRY:
Johnny, Johnny … let your Daddy and your Uncle and Leland talk. (turning to Ben) Ben … Leland, we can play the French against the Norwegians. What do the French love more than anything?

LELAND (part of Jerry’s presentation):
Boating?

JERRY:
No.

LELAND:
Hiking?

JERRY:
No.

LELAND:
Eating?

JERRY:
You’d think so.

LELAND:
Sex?

JERRY:
You’re getting warmer.

LELAND:
Trees?

JERRY:
Exactement. They are nuts about wood. They get goofy over trees.

SYLVIA:
I’ve never heard anything like this before. The French liking wood anymore than anyone else likes wood. Are you three crazy?

LELAND:
Sarah’s cousin is French and she can’t stop talking about the trees around here.

JERRY:
History is on our side, Ben. It’s no accident that the great explorers were named Hennepin, Nicollet, Marquette.

LELAND:
They were looking for wood.


SYLVIA (exasperated):
Oh …

As they talk, Johnny circles the blowup Indian and with a mighty bang pops it with his tomahawk. Bang!

[Ed. Confirmed to have NOT been shot. Source: Richard Beymer, interviews in Wrapped in Plastic Magazine and the Twin Peaks Archive. This scene was beautifully written by Lynch and Engels and would have been absolutely magical. It is a shame that this scene was not shot. I believe I read in Wrapped in Plastic that Richard Beymer was uneasy about the scene following this one and opted not to participate in the film. The photos above merely suggest what could have been.]

Scene 171: Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station, conference room.


Tommy “the Hawk” Hill, Truman, and Andy Brennan.

HAWK: Joey just called in. Bernie, the mule, left Canada about an hour ago.

TRUMAN:
Then stop watching Jacques and let’s set a trap for Bernie.


ANDY:
He’s coming in on foot.

TRUMAN:
That’s right, Andy.

(looks at him, waiting)

I guess you’re saying there’s an awful lot of trails for us to cover.

ANDY:
No, I was thinking what a long hike Bernie has to make.


HAWK (sensing an “Andy” situation):
I’ll get on it.

[Ed. Confirmed to have been shot. Source: Michael Horse. Also mentioned in an interview from the New Line Documentary: Twin Peaks Phenomenon featured on the 2001 Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me DVD.]

Scene 172: Ben’s office.

Laura quietly lets herself in. Ben looks up, happy to see her.

LAURA (very quiet):
I just wanted to say “Hello.”


BEN:
You missed the party. Look at my office. Come here.

He wiggles a packet of coke in front of her and she steps to him.

BEN:
For a kiss.

LAURA:
Sure, I’d do a lot more than that for it.

BEN:
Ssshhhh, your father’s in the next office. You should’ve seen him get upset at Johnny’s party about your photo here.

LAURA:
He’s always been jealous of you. You know that.

She moves in closer and kisses him. He responds.

[Ed. Confirmed to have NOT been shot. Source: Richard Beymer. Interviews in Wrapped in Plastic Magazine and the Twin Peaks Archive. In his interview in Wrapped in Plastic, Richard Beymer mentions that he was uneasy about this specific scene and thus opted not to participate in the film. Excerpt from the Wrapped in Plastic #38 Isue below:

CM: There’s a scene with Laura where Ben gives her some cocaine.

RB: I didn’t want to do that. I could see doing that if there was some sort of build up to it, and there was a character involved. But I saw no reason to push that at all, and it had nothing at all to do with the plot. It was just a device…

Sadly, I disagree. The photo above merely suggest what could have been.]

Scene 173: Highway 21. Night.


Bobby roars through the night with his radio blasting.

Whipping down a country road, Laura and Bobby are tooting coke as they fly through the night.

BOBBY:
We got to wait until midnight. But I got plenty here to make it. And I got plenty of dough … (pats the money that sits next to him) … for Bobby and Laura’s BIG SCORE!

He does a big clown laugh. Laura erupts with giggles. They toot up some more. Bobby tromps on the gas.

Scenes 179-180: Same country road.


Pete Martell’s powder blue pickup passes them going the other way. We stay on the pickup as it pulls into Big Ed’s Gas Farm. Big Ed comes out to meet Pete.

ED:
Hey, Pete. Can’t believe your tank’s dry up at the mill.

PETE:
No … hell no. Just got in the truck, started drivin’, looked down at the gauge and saw a big “E” starin’ at me.

ED:
You know what that Big “E” stands for? Big Ed’s Gas Farm.

PETE:
Yep. You’re right. That’s why I’m here.


ED:
What’ll it be?

PETE:
Fill ‘er up.

ED:
You got it.

PETE:
I haven’t got it yet.
Ed laughs.
ED:
Nice night.


PETE:
Yep …

(long pause)

Yes …

(another long pause)

… it is.

Ed starts to clean his windshield. Pete points out something on the windshield.

PETE:
You missed somethin’, Ed.

ED (moving around, trying to see it):
I did? I don’t see anything.

PETE:
Yeah … look in here. Look at it from this angle.

Ed puts his head inside the truck.

ED:
I see it.

(reaches up to touch) Hell, it’s on the inside, Pete.

(flips him the rag) The inside is your territory.

Pete starts to clean the inside of his windshield while Ed returns to work on the outside.

PETE (as he cleans):
Even this heavy work beats being at home with the ball and chain.

ED:
Brother, I hear you talkin’.

LAURA (acting real serious):
You killed Mike.

Bobby is about to get really pissed when Laura starts laughing again. Bobby fights to stay in control.

BOBBY:
I’m not going to give you this if you don’t stop laughing. It’s not one god damn bit funny.

Yes, Lucy?

LUCY (over intercom):
Mrs. Packard called and said she heard what she thinks could be a prowler outside her house.

TRUMAN:
Okay, Lucy. I’d better get on up there.

He releases the intercom button. But Lucy continues to talk over the intercom.

LUCY’S VOICE:
It’s probably raccoons, which is what it was last week …

TRUMAN (to Andy):
You stay here and monitor the radio. Let me know right away, if you hear from Hawk.

LUCY’S VOICE:
And last week I thought of the same thing.

ANDY:
Okay, Sheriff Truman.

LUCY’S VOICE:
Raccoons remind me of my aunt who lives in Wyoming where they have raccoons, too.

Truman stands up, puts on his gun and leaves. Lucy’s voice continues as we watch Andy sit there alone.

LUCY’S VOICE:
She couldn’t get rid of her raccoons because she made the big mistake of feeding them albacore tuna. I don’t know why she fed them albacore tuna. And albacore tuna is so expensive. (voice raising an octave) Sheriff Truman, how did you get up here?

Over the intercom, Andy hears Lucy make a small hysterical cry. He stands and runs from the room. We stay on the intercom. Lucy’s voice continues.

LUCY’S VOICE:
Andy? Are you there? I am very confused. Who am I talking to? Andy, are you there?

JAMES (confused and terrified):
Laura …

Laura crawls back up and puts her hands around James’ neck.


LAURA (from far away she screams):
JAMES, I LOVE YOU.

For a moment she focuses on him. She looks like the Laura that James loves–innocent and beautiful.

Laura turns and see the woods. It pulls her. She releases her hold on James and runs into the waiting darkness.

The red light swings in the wind above James. It turns green, but he doesn’t move. When the light turns red again, James guns the engine and lifts the bike up on its back tire. James screams, then roars down the road away from us.

Off to the side of the road lies Doc Hayward’s wilted red rose.

Scenes 221-226: The train car.

(Although this Scene is essentially the same as in the movie, there are a few minor differences. The complete text of the script is below:)

Leland hauls the two girls into the train car.

He slides the door shut and it is completely quiet.

Bob and Leland are going in and out like breathing. The two girls shudder in the corner as he circles them.

Leland grabs Laura and begins to wrap the twine around her arms, bending the arms back.

LAURA (whispers):
Are you going to kill me?

Cut to the woods. Gerard is tearing through the woods. The wind comes up, carrying with it cries and screams and the sounds of BOB.

Cut back to the train car. Leland hoists Laura up so that she hovers facing the floor a foot off the ground. He places a mirror on the floor directly under her face.

In the mirror, Laura sees herself turn into Bob. Leland screams into space.


[Ed. In the movie, again we see the Little Man from Another Place laughing in the Red Room.]

LELAND:
DON’T MAKE ME DO IT.

LAURA:
NO, YOU HAVE TO KILL ME.

[Ed. In the movie, Leland is holding the pages torn from Laura’s diary, and says “Your diary …”]

LELAND:
I always thought you knew it was me.

LAURA (to Bob in the mirror):
NO! YOU CAN’T HAVE ME. (to Leland) KILL ME.


[Ed. In the movie, Ronette prays, sees the angel, and the ropes on her hands are released.]

Gerard arrives outside. He bangs on the train door.

GERARD:
LET ME IN. LET ME IN.

The door opens a little bit because Ronette is pushing it with her feet. Gerard reaches up to help her when suddenly she flies over his head having been hit.

Ronette hits the ground, her unconscious head bent back at an odd angle.


[Ed. In the movie, we see the ring tossed on the train car floor. Laura puts it on. Leland/Bob screams “NO!”]

Extreme closeup on Gerard, as he listens to the sounds of murder inside the train car.
Cut to inside the train car.

Laura screaming.

(This Scene in the script is slightly different from the movie. The complete script is below:)

MISSING ACTION:

It is not empty. Gerard is just leaving the other side of the room.

Leland walks through the Red Room after him. He walks down a corridor AND INTO THE RED ROOM AGAIN.

END OF MISSING ACTION

There on the other side of the room, Leland sees Gerard and The Man From Another Place sitting side by side in a chair facing him.
Leland stops when he sees them. He divides. One half becomes Bob–opaque. The other half floats up and becomes Leland–transparent.

[Ed. In the movie, Scene 230 of Laura floating in the river, appears here.]

Bob reaches up and grabs Leland’s wound.Extreme closeup on Leland’s wound. Bob heals Leland’s wound.

Gerard and The Man From Another Place speak in unison.

GERARD/THE MAN FROM ANOTHER PLACE (subtitled) (in unison):
Bob, you’re not going home without me. I want all my garmonbozia (corn).

[Ed. In the movie, the above line is spoken BEFORE Bob heals Leland. We then see:


– Blood splattered on the floor, blood disappears from floor


– The mouth of the Man from Another Place eating corn off a spoon (shot in reverse)


– A monkey face, (is it the same as the one from Scene 53?) its mouth moves slightly and very faintly we can hear the word “Judy”

Scene 233: The Red Room.

The Man From Another Place stands with Cooper.

MAN FROM ANOTHER PLACE:
Is it future? Or is it past? … Do you know who I am? … I am The Arm … And I sound like this …

The Man From Another Place puts his hand in front of his lips and makes an Indian whooping sound.

[Ed. Portions of this scene appear in Laura’s dream, see Scenes 111-116.]


COOPER (looking at the table):
Where is the ring?

MAN FROM ANOTHER PLACE:
Someone else has it now.

COOPER:
That would indicate that it’s the future.

MAN FROM ANOTHER PLACE:
The later events have never been kept a secret.

COOPER:
Where am I? And how can I leave?

MAN FROM ANOTHER PLACE:
You are here and there is no place to go …

A pause.

MAN FROM ANOTHER PLACE (shouts):
BUT HOME!

The Man From Another Place begins to laugh uncontrollably.

Scene 234: Hospital room – night.

A nurse mops the sweat from Annie’s forehead. Annie tries to get through to her.

ANNIE:
My name is Annie. I’ve been with Laura and Dale. The good Dale is in the lodge and he can’t leave. Write it in your diary.

[Ed. This same line appears in Laura’s dream, see Scenes 111-116.]

The nurse pats Annie’s forehead and takes her hand. We see TERESA/LAURA’S RING on Annie’s ring finger. The nurse gently slides the ring off Annie’s finger.

Scene 235: Another room in the hospital.

The nurse enters. With an anticipatory smile, then a selfish laugh, she puts the ring on her finger.

Scene 236: A hotel room in the Great Northern – night.


Doc Hayward and Sheriff Truman watch the door of the bathroom anxiously.

TRUMAN:
Coop … Coop …

DOC:
Cooper, are you alright?

Not getting any response, Truman breaks open the door.

Scene 237: Inside the bathroom.


Cooper, in his pajamas, lies on the floor. The mirror above the sink is shattered, with blood all over it and the sink. Cooper smiles up at them strangely.

COOPER (smiling strangely):
I slipped and hit my head on the mirror. The glass broke as it struck my head. (laughs) It struck me as funny, Harry. Do you understand me, Harry, it struck me as funny.

DOC:
You are going right back to bed.

Doc and Truman help Cooper up.

COOPER:
But I haven’t brushed my teeth yet.

Cooper smiles at the uneasy pair.

END OF DELETED Scenes

[Ed. Both scenes confirmed to have been shot. Source: Kyle MacLachlan.]

Scene 238: Black Lodge/Red Room [sic]

[Ed. Fans have argued this over the past however, some may consider this as confirmation that the Red Room is the Black Lodge (in addition to the scene in the TV series finale, where Windom Earle’s voice, through Sarah, tells Major Briggs that “I’m in the Black Lodge with Dale Cooper”).]

(This scene in the script is shorter and slightly different than in the movie. The complete script for this scene is as follows:)

Laura is sitting in a chair. As the end credits begin …

We move back to see that Laura is sitting in Cooper’s lap in the same chair.

Fade out to:

THE END

END OF SCRIPT

[Ed. In the movie, we see:


– Laura sitting in the chair, Cooper next to her, his hand on her shoulder, Laura looks upset/concerned/unhappy


– A flashing white light


– Cooper looks down on Laura

– Laura’s expression changes to happiness/laughing/crying


– We see an angel floating above them, eyes closed, hands clasped in prayer (these last two are alternated several times)


– We pull back and up towards the ceiling, seeing Laura and Cooper, with the angel superimposed over them

– Fade to Laura’s face, end credits roll superimposed over it

None of this is in the script.]

[Ed. In addition, the following additional scenes which don’t appear in the finished film or the script were shot for the film. The following scenes have been confirmed: ]
Unscripted Scene 001: Packard Saw Mill – Pete and Dell argue over 2×4’s

Lynch & Engels had originally only scripted one scene with Jack Nance. On the day of the shoot, they ended early. As such, Bob Engels happened to be on location when he and Lynch came up on the spot with a new scene between Pete and Dell Mibbler (Ed Wright) in which the two argue over the size of a 2×4. Note that Joan Chen was also featured in this scene.

Dell Mibbler
This scene is described by Lynch in the book “Lynch on Lynch” and also mentioned in a recent MTV Interview with Lynch.

Lynch: …There are many short scenes that weren’t in the final film that on their own are interesting. They just never fit in the film. There’s talk of me editing and mixing those. There’s a scene with Jack Nance. It’s a short scene with Ed [Wright], who played Mr. Mibbler. I loved this guy. He was in “Wild at Heart” as well. Both of them are gone, so to fix those scenes, for the memory of them, it’s real important.

Unscripted Scene 002: Big Ed and Norma in Ed’s Truck


Again, Lynch and Engels had only scripted one scene with Everett McGill. Lynch had additional time before ending the shooting for the day. With Bob Engels on location and he and Lynch came up on the spot with a new scene between Big Ed and Norma as described in the clip above.

Unscripted Scene 003: Alternate version of BOB/Leland coming to Laura at night


The scene where with BOB coming to Laura at night was originally supposed to include BOB morphing into another figure before morphing into Leland.

At the 2011 Twin Peaks Festival Sheryl Lee spoke about the scene. @jlist posted a quick transcript during the event:

Sheryl Lee: #twinpeaks “There was only one thing I had to tell @david_lynch ‘no way.’ it was one of the bedroom scenes with Leland, then with Bob, then I saw these two crew guys carrying in the head of a pig, and I had to do it again with the pig. And I told him no, no I’m not. And he looked at me and said, really? Why?”

Although Sheryl Lee would not share the scene with the pig head, David Lynch and Ron Garcia figured out a way to film the scene by putting the pig head on a C stand and hanging it over Laura’s bed while Sheryl Lee was taking a break from shooting. Originally it had been planned to be a cutaway shot to morph between Leland and BOB but alas was left on the cutting room floor. Confirmed by Sheryl Lee and Ron Garcia.

Unscripted Scene 004: Rumored Scene of Phillip Jefferies in the Black Lodge

Years ago, I had a chance to speak with a person who worked with Lynch on Lost Highway who mentioned to me that in a conversation he had with Lynch, Lynch had mentioned that additional scenes with David Bowie were filmed taking place in the Black Lodge. However, when speaking with Ron Garcia, he did not recall shooting this, nor does he believe this scene was shot. However, it is hard to know for sure as so much footage was shot for this film that was left on the cutting room floor. It is interesting to note that if Twin Peaks would have continued as a Series of Films, Lynch has expressed that the next film would have focused on the Phillip Jefferies and Chet Desmond characters.

So there you have it. At this point, it remain to be seen if we will ever get to see any of the Deleted Scenes to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Several attempts have been made by New Line and MK2 to work out a deal with Lynch to finally release these scenes on DVD. Sadly, negotiations have been put on hold for the present. Lynch recently said the following an in an Interview for WNYC.org:

David Lynch: That, you know Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is owned by a company called MK2 in France. And I spoke to them a couple of months ago, um, I’ve spoke to them several times about this, you know, I think it will happen, but maybe the financial crisis is you know, affecting that in some way. I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m pretty sure there’s 17 scenes in that at least but its been a while since we’ve looked into that.

As to the question to whether or not the Deleted Scenes to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me will ever be released, the fate is unknown. It is a good sign that Lynch has recently taken it upon himself to release the Deleted Scenes to Wild at Heart in the recent Lime Green Box set. Perhaps an Absurda Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me box set is in store for the future. Over the years we have lost so many of the people that were featured in many of these scenes. Frank Silva, Jack Nance, Don Davis, and Ed Wright. For no other reason, seeing them reprise their beloved roles one last time would be absolutely magical. The scenes, to me, represent a final trip back to the beautiful world of Twin Peaks. This is a trip that I hope I will someday be able to take. But like the song goes, “Who knows where or when…”
