This wasn't necessarily cut, but the way the scene is put together we never really get to see this completely as described. This is a description of Maddie's bedroom the morning the episode begins. Whenever I read the description of how the room looks (Nice job, Kerry), my heart races.
INT. MADDIE'S BEDROOM - DAVID AND MADDIE
..asleep...and NAKED...under a sheet...and what we can see of the bedding and the rest of the room looks as if it awaits a claims adjustor: a whirlwind of passion swept through here last night...clothes, pillows, blankets tossed hither and yon....
MOVE IN ON MADDIE
....asleep on David's shoulder...and suddenly her EYES OPEN...it's as if she's been lying here thinking...planning....for several minutes...and then, trying to keep David from waking, MADDIE slowly tries to inch out of his lovelock...with the painstaking deliberateness of someone trying to defuse a live bomb. MADDIE gingerly lifts DAVID'S ARM from her...then she burrows and SLIDES slowly away from him...finally putting DAVID'S ARM BACK DOWN...and, satisfied she hasn't disturbed him, she sighs, then TURNS OVER...and is about to get out of bed when....
DAVID: Maddie....you asleep?
In the middle of the conversation in Maddie's office in Act one where
Maddie has just requested that she and David make a pact that "last night never happened,"
and he has indicated that he does not like that idea at all, this is the dialogue. We heard most of this except for an amusing, naughty comment from David.
MADDIE (after a MOMENT; softer): Do you remember what you said last night?
ANOTHER ANGLE -- TO INCLUDE BOTH OF THEM
...as David LOOKS her straight in the eyes...
DAVID: You mean after..."of course I can do it again"? (and then as honest as he's ever been) I know what I said. I meant it.
MADDIE: (still quiet) If you really meant it...you'll make this pact.
...and he looks at her...caught and he KNOWS it and he hates it...the most piercing SILENCE in the history of television is SUDDENLY SHATTERED by a sharp KNOCK on the door...
This is a line cut in the infamous scene in the car in front of David's apartment building right before the conversation about the pact "begins to take a turn."
DAVID: Just don't want you to think that I was trying to get you out here in the middle of the night...I mean...given what happened in the middle of last night...given the way you felt about it this morning. (a moment; and then) I mean I don't happen to feel that way..but I know you do...so I just don't want you to think I was pulling something.
MADDIE: I don't think you're pulling something. I don't think you're pulling anything.
DAVID: Not that I'd mind pulling something...or better still having something pulled....
MADDIE: Quit while you're ahead...(and then) We're here.
This was intended to be the first scene in ACT FOUR. Maddie and David have just finished making love at his apartment, had their spat about it all and the phone rang interrupting the argument so they have had to put their "tift on hold" while they go down to the police station where Robert Murphy has turned himself in saying he has killed Mr. Kendall. This is probably my very favorite of the cut scenes.
FADE IN: ON A SET OF DOUBLE DOORS
...with frosted glass as they're PUSHED OPEN from the other side and DAVID strides through followed by MADDIE...
MADDIE (privately): Gosh...I wish we'd had time to take a shower...
MADDIE (hushed): It's embarrassing. Can't you smell that smell?
DAVID: "That smell?" What smell?
MADDIE: You know what smell. That smell you smell after...you do what we just did.
DAVID: Oh....that smell? I've never smelled that smell. Or maybe it's just that I smell that smell all the time.
MADDIE: (disgusted): I'm sure that's it....
then this goes right into the scene where they are in the police station...
There is no way this dialogue could have gotten past the censors, and I suspect it was used as a decoy, knowing the scene would get cut and hopefully allow them to slip something else risque past the censors that in comparison to this scene, seemed tame. There was plenty at stake here, since this episode pushed the depiction of sex and sex talk to the limit on network television for its time. Did I ever mention that "To Heiress Human" is my favorite episode of Moonlighting? Yeah, I know, only about a dozen times or more.
