I watched, "Erin Brockovich," last night on A&E, another new favorite channel of mine (Forrest Gump is on tonight.) Not the whole thing, probably half. This movie is on my list and I have watched it probably 20 times.
For those of you that know the movie, there's a scene where Erin is sick and stops in the office to find Ed in a meeting with Kurt and Theresa. She gets all bent out of shape and yells at Ed and has a coughing fit. Ed tells her to go home, get some rest, and she's no good to him sick. She leaves the office.
Next scene, for the first 20 times I've watched it, is a town meeting where Ed is explaining the arbitration process and the people from Hinkley are upset that the case is not going to trial.
WELL. Last night, there was two extra scenes that I'd never seen. After she leaves the office, she is trying to unlock her SUV and she collapses. I'm thinking, "What the hell? I never saw that before!"
The following scene has George with the kids running into a hospital asking where Erin is. A doctor then explains that Erin has spinal meningitis. George talks to Erin about her motives in the Hinkley case, wondering if she's working so hard for the sick people or herself. Ed then comes in and tells Erin that there will be a town meeting explaining the arbitration thing.
This totally freaked me out. I watch bits of lots of movies and often miss the beginnings. In fact, I watched, "Same Time, Next Year," a couple of weeks ago On Demand and saw the beginning for the first time. (That should be on my list too.) But I've always managed to see them from at least ten minutes in until the end sooner or later.
Anyone that has seen the movie ever seen those scenes?
