These are scenes from the February 4, 1997 production draft of the script for the episode The Breeder written by Eleah Horwitz. These scenes did not make it into the final episode due to time and story considerations.
Our first altered view of events comes at the hospital just after Maggie has been taken there...
Maggie's slowly thawing. The red rash [that was on her face] has subsided. Outside the cubicle, medical personnel move about their rounds as Remmy and Quinn look in the cubicle. Wade eyes a thermometer that's attached to the glass of the cubicle.
One of those swamp things jumped
on her face just before we slid.
Did she swallow it?
No. She got it off but she may
have swallowed some of that water.
(steps up to them)
Another three degrees and her body
temperature will be back to normal.
DOCTOR NATALIE SYLVIUS, early 30's, beautiful, her lab coat hanging open revealing a halter top and mini skirt, approaches.
I'm Doctor Sylvius. I'd like to
ask you a few questions.
Is she going to be alright?
Well, we don't have all the test
results yet, but her vital signs
seem strong. Has she eaten
anything unusual recently?
From there it proceeds like the final version...
After Quinn and Wade are snatched from the street...Remmy originally used a name not heard before for the hotel...
As he leads her down the street...
Let's get you back to the hotel.
We stay at the Chancellor Arms when
we're in L.A. In case we get
separated we always know where to
Also, we were originally supposed to see more of how Maggie got the dress...
EXT. STREET - NIGHT
Maggie, still in the bathrobe, walks along a sidewalk. Some people eye her with mild curiousity but it's L.A. and hardly the weirdest sight to be seen. She stops in front of a woman's clothing store window. Eyes the mannequins, then moves inside.
INT. CLOTHING STORE - NIGHT
Empty except for the Middle Eastern SALESMAN dressed in a sharkskin suit, shirt open three buttons revealing some gold chains. Maggie walks to a rack of clothes. The salesman approaches, amused at the bathrobe. He tries to be funny.
Get locked out of your house.
She turns to him. Sizes him up. Expressionless, she puts her hand on his chest. The guy loves it.
I understand. You have no money.
That's okay. We can make other
She withdraws her hand.
Sorry. You're not hot enough.
Of course not. That's because I'm
He steps closer.
But don't worry. I can get hot
He puts his hands on her hips. She backhands her forearm into his head, driving him backward and over a display case then calmly turns back to the rack and picks out an outfit.
Then we cut over to Dr. Sylvius talking with Remmy, Wade and Quinn about Maggie's condition...
And in case you thought the Chancellor Arms mention was a typo of some kind...it appears again here. Also, we get a BIG revelation about Diggs' bar...
So where does a woman go when she
wants a man?
The closest bar's the one in the
That's a gay bar.
The Sliders exchange a look.
But there are a number of bars in
Lastly, did you ever wonder how Quinn and Wade got rid of the disk-like tags implanted in their arms? There was an explanation...
Bring me Maggie. When I have the
symbiont, you can have Wade.
And if we can't find her?
To paraphrase you, Mr. Brown, I
don't give a damn about your
friend. Harvesting Wade means one
less of my people have to suffer.
A cool beat between them, then Quinn and Remmy share a look. What can they do?
Deal. But you also take these damn
tags out of our wrists.
(off her nod)
And we'll need one of those cold
trauma guns. Just in case we get
If you watch carefully...when Wade is brought out after Maggie is captured...Wade no longer has a tag in her arm. This is evident because her arms are exposed...we are unable to see Quinn's wrist as well. So, it would appear that although the line was left out, it was still a part of the deal and the story.
