Mama Bear: Trish in spades. When Rob get's killed she runs, but when Jason grab's her little brother, she beats him mercilessly with a hammer and electrocutes him with a TV.

What Happened to the Mouse?: The exact fate of Mrs. Jarvis, as the scene of Trish finding her body drowned in the bathtub was cut. The scene had Mrs. Jarvis' corpse opening its eyes and grabbing Trish before revealing it to be a nightmare of Trish's; the deleted scene reminded people way too much of the firstand third's endings.
