Deleted Victoria Scene - End of NM

EXT. CULLEN HOUSE - SAME

POV FROM AFAR ON A HILLTOP – REVEAL IT’S VICTORIA watching the house down below. Off her seething fury –

SMASH TO:
EXT. HIGHWAY - MOMENTS LATER
A FERRARI has pulled over to the side of the road. VICTORIA PEERS IN THE WINDOW. The DRIVER, a middle-aged man smiles –

VICTORIA
Where you headed?

DRIVER
Seattle.

VICTORIA
(a slow grin)
Sounds perfect.

The Stitches scene from the New Moon script.  The dialogue differs from the final version, which makes me wonder who ultimately changed it: the screenwriter, the director, or ad libs from the actors?  I know Peter lobbied to get the “like everything in life,” line into the scene, and it was added, but ultimately cut and only available in the extended version on the DVD.

BELLA
I sure can kill a party.

CARLISLE
It’s not your fault. Jasper hasn’t been away from human blood as long as the rest of us.

BELLA
Seems like you’re the only one it doesn’t effect.

CARLISLE
Centuries of practice.

BELLA
Did you ever think of… living differently?

CARLISLE
I enjoy my work too much. Helping people, saving lives. I’m hoping there’s a point to my existence, even if I am damned.

BELLA
Damned? You’re not damned.

CARLISLE
Then you and I agree. But Edward doesn’t believe there’s an afterlife for our kind.
(looking at her) He thinks we’ve lost our souls.

BELLA
(realizing) That’s why he won’t… He thinks he’d be damning me.

CARLISLE (CONT’D)
If you believed as he did, would you risk it?

Deleted NM Scene - Rosalie's phonecall

INT. TENEMENT APARTMENT - RIO DE JANEIRO - DAY

A dump, empty but for a table and chair. On the table lie THE PHOTOS that once lined Bella’s walls. Edward stands in the center of the room, stock still, staring out at the rising sun. His face is as empty and desolate as Bella’s was after he left.

A CELL PHONE on the table RINGS jarringly. He doesn’t move.  It continues. Finally, he whips the receiver to his ear, exasperated.

EDWARD
What?

ROSALIE (O.S.)
Wow, Edward finally answered the phone. I feel so honored…

INTERCUT WITH:
INT. TANYA’S ALASKAN HOME - DAY
Rosalie, on the phone, stands at the picture window –

ROSALIE’S POV - EXT. ALASKAN HOUSE - Emmett, Jasper, Carlisle and Esme walk away from the house, over the snow to the treeline, on their way to hunt. None wear coats.

EDWARD
I’m hanging up now…

Rosalie turns away from the window.

ROSALIE
Wait!… You should come home.
(no response)
Esme’s a wreck, Carlisle never smiles. Even Emmett’s depressed. You’ve
really done a number on them.

EDWARD (pained)
I’m sorry. I am. But they wouldn’t be happier with me around. Trust me.

ROSALIE
I… I just miss… us. The family.

EDWARD
I know. But the further away I am, the safer Bella will be. She deserves a shot at a normal life –

ROSALIE
But see, you don’t have to worry about that, not anymore –


She stops realizing she may be making a mistake. But Edward caught it, sits up.

EDWARD
Why, Rose? Did something happen?

ROSALIE
I - uh –

EDWARD
Tell me, Rosalie.
(rises, fierce)
Tell me! –

ROSALIE
(blurts)
– Alice had a vision. She saw Bella – threw herself off a cliff… She’s dead, Edward.

Edward reels, uncomprehending.

EDWARD
I… don’t believe it.

ROSALIE
Alice is there now. Thought she could help with the funeral or something.
STAY ON ROSALIE as –
Come home, Edward. It’s time…
Edward…?

She’s been disconnected. Off Rosalie, worried…



Again: how is this Rosalie’s fault?  All she was doing was telling Edward what she honestly believed was the truth.  SHE wasn’t the one who had a vision and jumped to conclusions, SHE wasn’t the one who ran off to Volterra to die in the most dramatic way possible.  She didn’t tell him to get him to kill himself, she told him because she missed him and wanted him to come home! She was being honest with her brother and yet everyone blames HER?   What was the alternative?  Did they really plan on NEVER telling Edward, the mind-reader, that Bella had died?  If Rosalie had LIED about it to get Edward home, that would be one thing, but she believed she was being honest with him when no one else would.  How is that bad?

Deleted E/B/J Scene - NM
  • JACOB: I saw it the other day and thought of you - it catches bad dreams.
  • BELLA: This, I need. It’s great.
  • EDWARD: The bell’s about to ring.
  • The bell RINGS. Jacob gives Edward an amiable smile, with just a hint of snark.
  • JACOB: Ooh, look at you, all psychic.
  • EDWARD: I don’t have that particular gift. But I can read a watch. I’m clever that way.
  • They share a tight smile. Bella intercedes, squeezing Jacob’s arm.
  • BELLA: Bye, Jake, and thank you.
