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 an interesting scene, because it shows how Maria’s fear of Isabel was increased when she found Isabel in her dream, and shows the beginning of Liz’s worry that Maria might crack and spill the story after all.
INT. CRASHDOWN CAFE - BACK ROOM - MORNING Liz gets her books together for school as Maria, dressed for work, applies cover-up under her eyes in the mirror. LIZ You really don't have to be so nervous about her, you know. MARIA She threatened me. She blew me out of the plane. LIZ But it was a dream. MARIA You're not listening to me, okay? It wasn't just a dream. She wasn't supposed to be there. I was having a very nice completely normal weird anxiety dream and then, boom! Isabel walks into it. LIZ What do you mean she walked into it? MARIA It's like the rest of the dream was a dream, but Isabel was real. She looked different, she sounded different. LIZ Okay, see what's happening? You're building this whole thing up in your mind. You're taking a situation that's completely manageable and you're letting it get out of control. MARIA Well, I gotta tell you, Liz. This girl's got a way about her. She's just waiting for me to slip up so she can incinerate me. LIZ She's not going to incinerate you. And you're not going to slip up. You're a rock. Remember in sixth grade when I accidentally sat on Nancy Cremo's popsicle stick model of the Lincoln Memorial and you saw me do it, but you covered for me? MARIA (beat) I told her. LIZ (outraged) You told her? MARIA See? I'm a gut-spiller, a sparrow. LIZ Canary. (forcing herself to believe it) This is gonna be okay. I'm late for class. I've gotta go. Liz exits through the back door. Maria walks into the Cafe. CUT TO:
