Romantic Scene between Clark and Lois from the Tom Mankiewitz/Richard Donner version of Superman II that was cut.
INT. NIAGARA HONEYMOON COTTAGE - DAY
A garish honeymoon cottage, all velveteen and formica,
with heart-shaped cushions and other kinds of cloyingly
distateful romantic nonsense. A bedroom with a heart-
shaped bed leads off. CLARK stands by the luggage in the
center of the room, nervous, a sour expression on his
face. LOIS explores the furnishings, spots a bottle of
champagne on the TV with a little card, some flowers on
the table, etc.
"Complimentary champagne", a
"Complimentary corsage ..."
Oh, sure. Everything's complimentary -
until you get the bill. Of all the dumb

The closet lover.

klutziness, that feeble indecision, and

Lois, please ...
CLARK is pinned against the wall. LOIS brings her face up
close to his.
EXTREME CLOSE-UP - CLARK AND LOIS
LOIS' mouth opens seductively. She looks up at CLARK who

Lay one on me, Clark. Give it your best
CLARK hesitates, then squeezes his eyes shut, gives LOIS a
kiss. His total ineptitude is only matched by his suddenly
growing enthusiasm which he desperately tries to cover
up. They break. LOIS looks up at him, dazed.
Was I ... good?
I ... think I'd like to go into the other
room now ... get into bed ...
You know ...
Lois ... you mean ...
That's right, Clark. I think I'm getting
