Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheScript: Along with the scenes further explaining The Worm, there were many other scenes and dialogue exchanges included in the script but not used for the final film, including:
** A scene in which Jimmy talks with Paula, the dancer he is sleeping with in the opening credits.
** Extended dialogue between Gwenovier and Frank, about "Subjective human experience and terrible things", which was referenced in the final cut but not shown.
** A brief dialogue between Jim and Claudia after he asks her on a date, in which they both find they have the same favorite restaurant.
** We see what happens to Stanley between the events of that day's game show, and him talking to his sleeping father. - Further explanation during Earl's monologue concerning the reasons why he mistreated his first wife.
** The tone of Frank's confrontation with his father is considerably different, with him showing less hostility, more genuine sympathy and concern, and attempting to wake him up.
** It is made clear in the script that Jimmy doesn't survive the fire in his house caused by the destroyed television.
** We see Marcie's confession for what happened to the "guy in the closet".
