EXTRA SCENES
According to the site Thought Products, there were original drafts to the Sweet Valley High episodes which were funnier but unfortunately had to be trimmed down to what we actually saw on tv. Here are the original Elizabeth & Todd scenes from episodes in Season 1.

Ep. 102: ORACLE ON-AIR
Written by Raul Fernandez
Draft 3
June 6, 1994

ACT ONE

FADE IN: INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY

ELIZABETH and JESSICA chat as they walk.

JESSICA
I just can't believe what a jerk
he turned out to be!

ELIZABETH
Really, Jess, you should find a guy
like Todd: Attentive, trustworthy,
loyal--

JESSICA
Ugh. That's not a boyfriend, that's
a Cocker Spaniel.

ELIZABETH
Is not--

A winded TODD races up, rests his hands on his knees.

TODD
(panting)
Here's you're Frisbee back.
(hands it to her)
Mind if I skip lunch? I promised the
guys I'd shoot some hoop.

ELIZABETH
Okay, Mr. Scruffy-face ...

Liz gives Todd a quick peck, musses up his hair. He runs
off excitedly. Jess looks at Liz and the Frisbee.

ELIZABETH
(re: Frisbee)
What? It's not like it's covered in
slobber...

Ep. 113: CLUB X
Written by Raul Fernandez
Draft 1
July 15, 1994

EXT. BLACKTOP BASKETBALL COURT - DAY

Winston waits as Todd plays 1 on 1 against a Tall Guy.
Todd fakes, slips by the Tall Guy and STUFFS the ball in.
The Tall Guy shakes his head and hands Todd some money.

WINSTON
No more games, Todd. I need to pick
up my car before the garage closes at
six.

TODD
Sure, let's go.
(checks his watch)
It's five already? Sorry, Eggman, I
promised I'd fleece a couple guys at
Pali.

Todd gathers his things as an angry Liz enters.

ELIZABETH
Todd! What are you doing here? I've
been waiting at the theater for over
an hour!

TODD
Was that today? I totally glossed.
I'm sorry...

ELIZABETH
(cooling)
It's okay. I got tickets for the six
o'clock.

TODD
I can't. I'm meeting some guys at
Pali. Tomorrow, I promise.
(starts to head off)
or go with Winston!

Todd exits. Liz is really upset, she turns to Winston.

ELIZABETH
This is the second time ...

WINSTON
Sucks, huh? He was supposed to help
me pick up my car.

ELIZABETH
...I'll take you.

CUT TO: INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY

The next day. Enid and Elizabeth walk together. Lila
sees them, catches up to listen in.

ENID
So what are you and Todd going to do
for your anniversary?

ELIZABETH
I don't know. If he keeps blowing me
off for these one-on-one games, there
won't be an anniversary.

LILA
I heard he's been playing to impress
a girl at Pali.

ELIZABETH
Lila, you're always "hearing" things.
Maybe you should get your ears
checked.

LILA
Just trying to help. After all,
knowledge is power.

They arrive at a row of lockers. Elizabeth opens hers.

ELIZABETH
Then you won't mind if we call you
"Miss Information."

LILA
I like that!
(extends hand as if introducing herself)
Hi, I'm Miss Information.
(realizing)
Hey--!

INT. MOON BEACH CAFE - DAY

Liz and Todd, in sweaty sweats, share a booth.

ELIZABETH
Is something wrong, Todd?

TODD
No, why?
(sniffs sweatshirt)
What, do I smell?

ELIZABETH
I'm talking about us. We used to see
each other every afternoon. But for
the last week, all you do is hustle
games. If I didn't know better, I'd
think you were trying to blow me off.

TODD
Lord, no!
(takes Liz' hand)
I love you, Liz. But I just-- Well,
I have my reasons. But I promise:
from now on, I'll put you first.

The SOUND OF SCREECHING TIRES. Liz and Todd look out the
window. A moment later, Jess struts in.

ELIZABETH
What are you doing with Bruce's car?

JESSICA
I stole it.

ELIZABETH
Very funny.

JESSICA
I wasn't kidding.

ELIZABETH
Jess!

JESSICA
(mocking)
Liz!

Jess joins Lila at another booth. A HUSTLER bouncing a
basketball enters the Cafe. He accosts Todd.

HUSTLER
You Todd Wilkins?

TODD
Yeah. What's it to you?

HUSTLER
Word is you're the top B-Ball boy in
this backwards little burg.

TODD
I play a little.

HUSTLER
Well me and my pal Ulysses S. Grant
say I can whoop your sorry little
Sweet Valley butt right now.

Todd looks to Liz.

TODD
I'm busy.

HUSTLER
Not Sweet enough? Let's say we make
it TWO fifties. That fire your jets?
or you just chicken?

TODD
...Let's see the money.

Liz shoots Todd a look.

HUSTLER
(pulls out two bills)
Check 'em out. Two overweight Post -
Dixie Presidents.

ELIZABETH
Todd--

TODD
I'm sorry, Liz.

Todd stands, the Hustler smiles--he's got several inches
on Todd. Then, in a flash, Todd SNATCHES the ball,
bounces it through the Hustler's legs, slips around him
and catches the ball. The Hustler is stunned. Todd
strides out the Moon Beach Cafe door.

TODD
(as he exits)
Take a close look at those bills,
Dexter, it's the last time you're
gonna see 'em.

HUSTLER
(chases after Todd)
The hell it is ...

The Hustler exits. Liz is upset. She joins Enid and
Winston at the counter.

ELIZABETH
Do you believe that?

WINSTON
It's because he always wins. Winners
are the most obnoxious people on the
planet.

ENID
Spoken like a true loser.

WINSTON
Thank you.

ELIZABETH
Well if he'd just lose once, maybe
he'd come back to earth. Or at least
the lower stratosphere.

ENID
Yeah, but we'd need a pro to beat
him.

ELIZABETH
(thinks)
What an interesting idea...

Enid and Winston look to Liz.

CUT TO:EXT. BASKETBALL COURT - DAY

Winston vs. Todd game in progress: Todd is simply
destroying Winston. A chalk scoreboard marks Winston's
progressive humiliation. Onlookers cheer, Elizabeth
shakes her head.

Winston comes up to Liz.

WINSTON
Where is he?

ELIZABETH
If he was Kareem, I'd say lazing
around the forecourt, waiting for a
breakaway.
(off reaction)
He's said he'd be here.

Winston drags himself back onto the court. Todd toys
with Winston for a bit, then stuffs another one past him.

TODD
That's twenty, Winston. One more and
you're archaeology.

WINSTON
(gesturing)
Time!

Winston goes up to Liz. Todd dribbles impatiently.

TODD
What is she, your coach?

WINSTON
We've got a problem here. The only
way I could come up with four hundred
bucks is by selling my kidneys.
Which, confidentially, are bursting
right now.

ELIZABETH
Then go. I'll check out front.
WINSTON
(to Todd)
Bathroom break!

TODD
Again?

Winston heads for the bathroom. Liz exits to...

EXT. FRONT OF SCHOOL

Worthy drives up. Liz rushes up to him.

WORTHY
(getting out of car)
Sorry, the coach kept us late. Am I
in time?

ELIZABETH
Just barely. Come on...

EXT. BASKETBALL COURT - LATER

Liz stands by the side of the court. Winston returns
from the bathroom, looks to Liz. She nods. Todd throws
Winston the ball.

TODD
Here. Free chance.

WINSTON
(dribbling)
Alright Wilkins, say yer prayers.

Winston tries to drive past Todd. Todd deftly steals the
ball. Winston trips on Todd's foot, lands "painfully" on
his ankle. Todd stands over him.

WINSTON
(painfully)
...My ankle...

TODD
Can you play on it?

Winston tries to stand, then shakes his head.

TODD
That's game. Shell it out, Eggman...

ELIZABETH
That's not fair. He's hurt.

TODD
I'm not going to wait for him to
heal.

WINSTON
...Let me pick a replacement.

TODD
What the heck, take anyone you can
find.
(spins ball on finger)
But you're only postponing the
inevitable ...

Liz and Winston accost various spectators, who all shake
their heads "no." Then, exasperated, Liz goes around the
corner of the building. She returns with Worthy in tow.

ELIZABETH
Look who I found!

ELIZABETH
(escorts Worthy to Todd)
Todd, I believe you've heard of James
Worthy...

WORTHY
(shakes Todd's hand)
Nice to meet you, Todd.

TODD
Now wait a minute--

ELIZABETH
You said anyone I could find. I
found him. Besides, it's only one
basket.

WORTHY
(to Liz)
If he doesn't think he's up to it--

TODD
I'm up to it. Let's rock...

Todd walks back to half court, Worthy puts on his
goggles, takes the court as well.

TODD
(starts dribbling)
Alright you overgrown, overpaid,
charity-supporting, goggle-wearing
old-timer, see if you can stop THIS!

Todd drives, HARD. Worthy sticks with him. Todd pivots,
SHOOTS ... And is completely snuffed by Worthy. Worthy
recovers the ball, dribbles back to center court. Todd
closes in.

TODD
Okay, so you've got height. But I've
got youth, speed, agility--

Worthy stops dribbling, casually shoots over Todd's head:
Nothing but net. Todd is dumbstruck.

WORTHY
(goes to get ball)
I didn't mean to interrupt. Please,
continue ...

TODD
(to himself)
I'm going to die...

MONTAGE:

Worthy wipes the floor with Todd in various interesting
ways.

Liz and Winston look on, give each other high fives.
Passers-by stop to watch the show. Todd sweats like a
luau pig.

The chalk scoreboard shows Worthy one basket away from
winning.

END MONTAGE

WINSTON
Alright Mr. Worthy! One more and
he's waffles!

Todd catches his breath as Worthy dribbles back to center
court. Worthy drives--and slips on some sand! He falls
to the ground, clutches his ankle. Liz and Winston run
to his side.

ELIZABETH
You all right?

WORTHY
...My ... ankle...

WINSTON
That's really funny, Mr. Worthy

WORTHY
I'm not kidding.
(hands the ball to Winston)
You're going to have to finish it up
yourself.

WINSTON
Me?

Worthy hobbles off as Winston stands.

WINSTON
Okay, Todd, I'm gonna put you away.

TODD
I thought you were injured. or was
this all a hustle?

Winston drops to the ground, clutching his ankle. The
ball rolls away.

WINSTON
Ow! Owww! Substitute! i pick--

TODD
(picks up ball)
Unh uh. This time, I pick.
(points)
Liz.

ELIZABETH
Me? That's not fair--

TODD
It's only one basket. Besides,
something tells me this was your idea
in the first place.
(throws her the ball)
Take it out.

Elizabeth does, dribbles down court. At first, Todd cuts
her some slack, but once she's inside the 3pt circle,
he's all over her. Liz sets, but Todd's long arms
prevent any shot at all. Liz is frustrated. Todd can't
help but laugh.

Liz tries for a jumper. Todd BATS the ball out of her
hands. He recovers it, starts to drive as Liz grabs her
face.

ELIZABETH
OWWWW! Todd!!
Todd stops, returns to check on Liz.

TODD
Liz??? You okay?

Liz GRABS the ball from Todd, dribbles past him. He
tries to catch up, but he's too late: she sinks a perfect
lay-up. The Onlookers go wild.

ELIZABETH
In your face, Todd! In your face!

Winston grabs the ball, high-fives Liz. Todd is
shattered.

WINSTON
Liz wins it with a Jessica move!
(off reaction)
--A morally justified Jessica move.
(goes to Todd)
Shell it out Wilkins ...

Todd digs into his pocket, comes out with a wad of bills.

TODD
Here's everything. Enjoy.

Todd dejectedly turns, starts to walk away.

ELIZABETH
What's wrong, Todd?

Todd stops. He's really upset.

TODD
I can't believe you'd pull a stunt
like this, throw away our friendship,
just to make some bucks on a
basketball game!

Worthy joins Todd.

WORTHY
It is pretty lousy to put money
before your friends, isn't it?

TODD
Yeah, imagine how I feel!

WORTHY
I think they know.

TODD
What? How would--
(realizing, sincerely)
Oh. ...Have I been this bad?

Liz and Winston nod. Todd walks over to them.
TODD
(apologetic)
I had no idea, you guys, really.
What can I do to make it up to you?

ELIZABETH
I think you've learned your
lesson. Right Winston? ...Winston!

Winston is busy sniffing and stroking the money.

WINSTON
What? Oh yeah. Here...
(gives Todd the money, then to
bills)
I'll miss you guys ...

TODD
You don't need to--

ELIZABETH
We don't care about the money. We
care about you.

WINSTON
Right. ...Can I see that fifty?
(off reaction)
Just kidding.
(looks offscreen, holds up
ball)
You, on the crutches! Buck a point!

Winston exits.

ELIZABETH
Now that that's over, can we talk
about what to do for our anniversary?

TODD
I wanted it to be a surprise, but...

Todd pulls a weathered, sweaty vacation brochure from his
pocket. Liz unfolds it, it trumpets a swanky resort.

ELIZABETH
The Ritz Gardens? This place costs a
fortune!

TODD
(nods)
That's why I started hustling games.
(holds up cash)
This is our anniversary fund. I just
thought about the wonderful time we'd
have and I was unbeatable.

This touches Liz.

ELIZABETH
Oh, Todd...

Elizabeth throws her arms around Todd, kisses him.
Worthy comes up to them, clears his throat.

WORTHY
(shakes Todd's hand)
You play a good game. Stick with it,
and we may meet at MY home court.

ELIZABETH
Thank you so much, Mr. Worthy.

WORTHY
My pleasure.
(to Todd)
Don't let her get away.

TODD
(smiles at Liz)
I won't.

Worthy pats the two of them on the shoulder, then walks
off. In the BG, the GUY ON CRUTCHES scores another hoop
off Winston. Todd and Liz kiss.
