Did you know Jeffrey Beaumont had a girlfriend in college called Louise? It’s one of the many interesting facts we learn from the “lost footage” on Blue Velvet’s Blu-ray edition. In this scene, brought to you by NBC, the young couple says goodbye just before Jeffrey has to hop on a plane home and visit his dad in the hospital.
Here’s the scripted scene, which originally took place inside the girls dorm lobby and at night.
Jeffrey is waiting in a girls dorm lobby for Louise.
Girls are milling around. Louise gets off an elevator with some other girls. She forces a smile at Jeffrey as she comes toward him.
Can’t you come to the damn airport?
Jeffrey. I can’t. I really can’t. I have to go to that class tonight. I can’t get out of it. I really can’t. I love you, Jeffrey. I’ll miss you.
Alright. I’ll call you in a couple of days, you know. I’ll let you know how things are.
Okay. I’ll be here. You better git-going. I gotta go too sweetie. I hope your father’s okay. I love you. I’m sorry, Jeffrey.
I love you too, Louise. Damn it. I’ll see you.
