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 seemed to be the scene that everyone wanted to see the most, so here it is! Max’s even demeanor finally explodes. When the episode aired, the scene ended after Max’s line, “I wasn’t dabbling in the arts.”
MICHAEL But what? You can take chances, but I can't? You can roll the dice with our lives, but if anyone else does anything-- MAX No. I saved someone's life, Michael. I wasn't dabbling in the arts. (beat) And whatever trouble I cause, I got us out of it. MICHAEL Well, I haven't gotten us into any trouble... MAX (growing edgy) Not yet. But then what happens? What happens when it hits the fan? What are you gonna do then? Max is clearly projecting his "diary" frustrations. MICHAEL I'll figure something out. MAX You'll call me is what you'll do. You'll call your friend Max for help. And suddenly it won't just be your problem. It'll be my problem. Well, you know what, I don't want any more problems, Michael. I have enough. So why don't you do us all a favor and give your budding art career a rest? Before it's you and me behind that glass case and not your painting. Isabel looks on, a little stunned at Max's explosion. Michael just stares at Max, then turns and walks away. Max looks sheepishly at Isabel. MAX (cont'd) (understatement) A little much? ISABEL A smidge. Max thinks. CUT TO:
