Deleted Scene: Boogie Nights, Rahad's Last Stand



               INT.  RAHAD JACKSON'S HOUSE - THAT MOMENT

               Rahad storms around his house, the SHOTGUN in his hand.  The 
               two battered young women are shaking and shivering in a corner 
               of the room.

                                     RAHAD
                         What the fuck...what the fuck...what 
                         the fuck.

               Rahad rants and raves incoherently, sets down the shotgun 
               for a moment to take a hit from his crack pipe.  HOLD, THEN:

               ANGLE, A WALL IN THE HOUSE

               A red flash hits the wall.....then a blue flash hits the 
               wall.

               ANGLE, RAHAD

               He looks at the wall and sees the red-blue flash.  He turns 
               and looks out his window.

               ANGLE, THE WINDOW

               A whole collage of red/white/blue flashing lights.  Sounds 
               of POLICE ACTION outside....

               CAMERA DOLLIES IN ON RAHAD.  He smiles.

                                     RAHAD
                         It's coming down, coming down.

               Rahad moves to the window and pulls aside the curtains.  
               POLICE SOUNDS, BULLHORN CALLS, FOLLOWED BY THE WHIRL OF A 
               POLICE HELICOPTER AND SPOTLIGHT.

               ...RAHAD PICKS UP THE SHOTGUN, SMASHES THE WINDOW AND FIRES 
               OFF A SHOT AT THE POLICE OUTSIDE...

               ...POLICE FIRE BACK ABOUT ONE MILLION BULLETS THAT RIP INTO 
               RAHAD, SENDING HIM BACK, STUMBLING ACROSS THE HOUSE, FURTHER 
               AND FURTHER....BULLETS RIP INTO THE TWO GIRLS, KILLING THEM.                

               OVERHEAD ANGLE, LOOKING DOWN ONTO:

               Rahad's dead body fall's next to Todd's dead body.  Next to 
               them on the floor are the two paper bags full of baking soda 
               and cash.

                                                    QUICK FADE OUT, CUT TO:
