As we make our way through this period of reruns, here are some cut scenes for your reading pleasure. Some help clarify plot points. Some are just cute. These are scenes that were in the final shooting script, but never aired. Whether or not they were ever filmed is unclear.
Right now, these are exclusive to “Crashdown”. If you see these someplace else, please let me know. If you’d like to use these on your own site, CONTACT ME first.
This is actually a scene and a half. The first scene was originally the start of the act, and explains why Max showed up at the Crashdown that day. The second part is the first part of the scene where Maria is the only one working, and ends up shortchanging the customer $10, causing Max to follow the customer over to the UFO center.
From: "Monsters" by Thania St. John. INT. TOPOLSKY'S COUNSELING OFFICE - DAY Max and Topolsky. TOPOLSKY Thanks for coming back, Max. MAX Sure. TOPOLSKY I pulled your file. I hope that's okay. Max looks at her a bit alarmed. TOPOLSKY (cont'd) I was sort of surprised. No clubs, no sports, no after-school activities. MAX I'm not a big-- TOPOLSKY Joiner? MAX I guess not. Topolsky looks at him, nods: TOPOLSKY So, that thing we were talking about yesterday. About coming out from behind the trees. Did you try that? MAX Sort of. TOPOLSKY Great! How'd that go? MAX Not well. TOPOLSKY Well, you know what they say. If at first you don't succeed... On Max, thinking about this, we CUT TO: INT. CRASHDOWN CAFE - DAY - CLOSE ON THE PASS-THROUGH ... where many orders are waiting to be picked up. The cook's hand RINGS the BELL impatiently as Maria rushes up. MARIA Cut it out with the bell, okay? I'm like flying solo here. She takes several plates over to a booth. CUSTOMER Miss, may I have some ketchup, please? MARIA Over there behind the counter. CUSTOMER Why are you the only one here? MARIA Because Karen thought her color was purple and Stephanie thought her color was blue and Agnes couldn't read the schedule at all so she just went home.
