T2 deleted scene
After Silberman visits Sarah with his students, he tells Douglas to give Sarah the medicines. Douglas and a second attendant enter Sarah's cell and try to give Sarah the medicines, but Sarah refuses it. Douglas beats Sarah and forces her to take the medicines.
Van Ling (Creative Supervisor), in T2, the Book of the Film, An Illustrated Screenplay:
Scene 23 was shot as scripted but omitted from the final film due to both time considerations and to the fact that it was deemed unnecessary to show further that Pescadero's not a nice play to live. The loss of the set-up of Douglas' sadistic cruelty here so he can get his come-uppance later in Sarah's escape is well covered by his slimy performance in Scene 60. This omitted scene also stacks the audience's sympathy toward Sarah --which is something she is supposed to earn in the course of the story-- too early; by inventionally keeping Sarah appropriately harsh in the hospital, it gives her a point of departure for the developement of her character
This scene is re-inserted back into the special edition version of T2.
Terminator 2 script, revised final shooting script:
SILBERMAN Douglas, I don't like seeing the patients disturbing their rooms like this. See that she takes her thorazine, would you? DOUGLAS is 6'4", 250 pounds and warm-hearted at a rattlesnake. He nods, catching Silberman's meaning, and gestures for the other attendants to hang back as Silberman moves on in his rounds. 23 INT. CELL Sarah looks up as the cell door opens. Douglas walks in slowly, idly tapping his POLICE BATON against the door in a ominous rhythm. The other two orderlies ease in behind him. One of them carries a STUN BATON (like a sawed-off cattle prod). The other has a tray with cups of red liquid-thorazine. DOUGLAS Time to take you meds, Connor. Sarah faces him, weight centered. Feral eyes darting from one to the other. SARAH You take it. Douglas grins, casual -- DOUGLAS Now you know you got to be good 'cause you up for review this afternoon... SARAH I'm not taking it. Now I don't want any trouble... DOUGLAS Ain't no trouble at all -- He whips the baton in a whistling backhand, which -- WHAP! Takes her square in the stomach. She doubles over and drops to her knees, unable to breathe. Douglas tips the bed and it slams down with a crash, right new to her. He takes her stun wand from the other attendant and walks forward. TIGHT ON SARAH, grimacing and struggling to breathe. SARAH You... son of a... AAARRGH!! The stun wand hits her between shoulder blades as she tries to rise. It drives her to the floor, pinning her like a bug. Little ELECTRIC ARCS CRACKLE as the baton makes her writhe in pain. Douglas grabs her by the hair and jerks her up to her knees. Holds the cup of thorazine in front of her lips. DOUGLAS Last call, sugar. Gasping, she chokes the zombie juice down. CUT TO:
