These are scenes from the November 16, 1998 sixth revision draft of the script for the episode The Great Work written by Robert Masello. These scenes did not make it into the final episode due to time and story considerations.|
Mallory had a missing quip at the dinner table...
We move around a lot. Oh yeah, one
day we're in one place, the next day
somewhere else -- completely.
Abraham looks unsatisfied.
You must be very lucky... or very
A little of both, I guess. But we've
seen our share of troubles.
So the women here always eat separate
from the men.
The women do *everything* separate from
So, there won't be any new *little*
keepers, will there?
Before Abraham can react to that, a BELL TOLLS again, and all the Keepers silently rise from their benches, and begin to move out.
We have a time for solitary
contemplation now. Let me show you
to your quarters.
Abraham rises, and as he does the camera moves to the CRYSTAL DISK, SPARKLING on the matel.
And while picking up clams on the beach, Seth originally had a little more to say when Remmy slipped up...
(tactfully as possible)
What happened here? Was your world
Yes, most of it. Or at least that's
what I've been told. After the
collapse of the Hemispheric Alliance,

somewhere else. Where? Another
planet? A star?
They still aren't sure what and how much to tell him.
You've got a pretty wild imagination,
And then the scene shifts to Diana scrubbing the floors...just as we saw.

There's a tunnel to the outside,
James took me through it from the
infirmary! And he's hidden a boat
there, under some driftwood.
Could you get there?
Yes. I could take someone there, but
I'm not leaving the island.
We don't have time to argue about
this, Seth. You have to go.
You owe me a favor -- whatever I ask.
Yes, but now isn't the --
I was going to ask to go with you.
To leave this island. But that's not
what I'm asking now. Now I want to
stay right here and fight the
The only way you can defeat them now
is by protecting the Great Work. By
doing what your father died trying to
He's right, Seth. If you want to
beat 'em, you've got to get that
