MISSING SCENES from ALIEN

There where many scenes that where cut from the theatrical release of ALIEN. These scenes added some  trivial ,but expansive information as well as (in some cases) changing whole aspects of the alien life cycle. The director Ridley Scott decided to make the cuts to increase the suspense while maintaining the pace of the film.

Big Thanks to the The Alien Movies Resource Page & The Alien Hive

Ash
Yes, it ??
Lambert
Well, there has to be umm. . .some way to get this off his face.
Ash
Hm?  Yes, well I don't think we ought to try that again.  It didn't work out too well last time.
 

Ash
Well I've better get some intervenious to feed him though.  So far we don't know how much is absorbed in his system.  (He faces Lambert) You alright?
Lambert (nods)
Yep.

Planning the search.

This scene takes place after the chestburster is born and takes place in the eating area.

Everyone enters.

Dallas
See anything?
Brett
No.
Ripley
It must have gone below.
Brett
Look goddamit, all I. . .all I want to know is what. . .what is it.  Mr. Ash now you're the science man, you have the fucking thing on here to study it, now you've studied it, what is it.  I mean, how are we gonna deal with it?
Ash
I don't know Brett.

Planning the search
Dallas
He's using it as a host, as some kind incubator.  (Pause) Now whatever the hell it is we have to catch it and we gotta eject it from the ship, right?
Ash
Yes, but how precisly are you going to do that?
Dallas
We flush it out Ash, room by room quarter by quarter.
Ripley
That will take a while.
Dallas
Do you have an alternative?!
Ash
Our supplies are based on us spending a limited amount of time in the hypersleep. . .

 


Brett's extended death scene
Brett's extended death scene
Brett is attacked by the Alien and then. . .

Brett (while making a weird blowing/shock noise)
PARKER!!  AHHHHHH!

The Alien kills Brett with it's toothed tongue and takes him up into the air shaft.  Ripley and Parker come running in.

Parker
Brett!  Brett!
Ripley
Brett!

Parker looks up and his shirt gets smeared with Brett's blood that is dripping from the air shaft.  Brett's cattle prod falls to Parker's feet.
(49 sec.)
 
 

 



Trying to trap the Alien
 

Ripley, Lambert, and Parker are trying to trap the Alien in the airlock.  The scene was only about two-thirds of the way filmed.  Below are the transcripts of the scenes availible. . .
Trying to trap the Alien
Parker (in intercom)
Ripley!  Ripley!  Dammit!  Where the hell are you?  Ripley!   Ripley!

Lambert and Ripley come racing into the cockpit area.

Lambert
We're here.
Parker
Keep it down, keep it down.
Ripley
What is it Parker?
Parker
Its..It's come outside the main airlock door.  Now open the doors slowly when I say.   ??? then pull [close] the other door.  Okay. . .??

There is a pause as Ripley and Lambert wait for Parker's signal.

Parker
Okay, now!  NOW!
Ripley
Parker?  Parker?
Lambert
Paarker!?
Ripley (to Lambert)
I'm going down, stay here!

Trying to trap the Alien

Ripley runs off to Parker.

The rest of this scene that was unfilmed has Parker observing the Alien.  Then an alarm rings that startles the creature.  The Alien runs out, catching its tail in the door and spraying acid that breaches the hull.  Depressurization is coming.   Parker and Ripley both fall down unconscious from a lack of oxygen, and then it cuts to the next scene.

Lambert (into the intercom, very scared)
Ripley?  Ripley?  Ash?  Ash??  Ripley?  Ash?  Anybody?   Ash?  Get some oxygen and get down to the 'lock, quick!

Lambert runs off to the airlock.

Ash and Lambert then arrive to give oxygen to Ripley and Parker.  Ripley then accuses Ash of activating the alarm to scare off the Alien.

Some of this was quoted from Al's Alien Page as well.  Thanks Al!
(1 min., 51 sec.)
 

 


Ripley and Lambert's conversation about Ash

This takes place after Dallas' disappearance.
Ripley and Lambert's conversation about Ash
Lambert is crying/sniffling.

Ripley
I think it's the only way.
Lambert
I'm sorry you know, it just seems like your asking us to kill each other one by one.
Ripley
I promise you if it doesn't look like its gonna work, I'm gonna get us out of here.   Will you hang in there, ok?

There is a short pause as Ripley consoles Lambert.

Ripley
I want to ask you a question.
Lambert
What?
Ripley
Have you ever slept with Ash?
Lambert (laughing)
No.  I never got the impression he was particular interest?  [I think she says this] Why?
Ripley
I want you to figure out where we are now, ok?  Plot our course.

They both walk off.

Lambert
Okay.
(1 min., 38 sec.)
 


Longer build-up to Lambert's death Longer build-up to Lambert's death.
 

You can see the Alien's shadow on the wall.  It walks in, crouches down, and immediately gets up.  It waits until Lambert notices its presence.  Lambert then sees the Alien, uncoils its tail, and rolls over to Lambert. 
(42 seconds)

 


The cocoon scene

After Ripley finds Parker's and Lambert's bodies she hears various moaning sounds.  After a little searching, she looks on the walls in the landing leg of The Nostromo, and she finds Brett almost completely turned into an Alien egg and Dallas cocooned, in the process of being transformed into an Alien egg.

Dallas moans very sickly.

Ripley (in shock)
Dallas. . .God. . .DallasThe cocoon scene
Dallas
Killll me.
Ripley
What did it do?

She pauses and looks at the Brett-Egg.

Ripley
Brett?  (To Dallas) I'll get you out of here.  I'll get you up to the shuttle. . .
Dallas
Kill meeee. . .
Ripley
What did I do?
Dallas
Ripleyyy. . .

Ripley torches Dallas and the Brett-Egg with the flame thrower.  She then runs to set the ship on self-destruct.

This deleted scene would have been the Alien life cycle had it not been cut.  When James Cameron did Aliens, he introduced the Alien Queen, giving us the explanation that there is an Alien Queen that lays the Alien eggs.  It's possible that the deleted Alien life cycle from Alien could still be PART of the Alien's life cycle (an additional way of producing Alien eggs), but at the time, it is not an official part of the Alien life cycle.  As far as we know now, the Alien Queen is the only way of producing Alien eggs.
