Watch This Deleted Scene From LOUIE

…Because we can learn just as much about television production (and writing) by knowing what the geniuses don’t use as well as what they do:

We don’t know what episode this was intended for, but don’t you think that a 2-minute version, or two 2-minute pieces as a frame for the rest of a show, would have been awesome?

EDITED BY LB TO ADD: Having just watched the LOUIE episode in which Louie apologizes to Marc Maron for ruining their friendship 10 years earlier, I’m thinking this scene would have fitted in nicely with both the theme and the format of this particular half-hour: Separate vignettes. If the material was shot for that episode I can also see why it was cut: No room.
