Scene from “Glenayr” Expunged

Expunged scene from Glenayr:

DAVIS smokes a joint behind The Morrissey Bar with ERDLEY and SUE ANN.

SUE ANN (Smoking the joint): My brother Andy isn’t so bad. You know why he’s so angry? He saw our father drown. All of it right in front of his eyes.

ERDLEY: No shit?

SUE ANN: We were in the Caribbean, snorkeling, and he, like, swam off, looking for buried treasure or something. And then just sunk. (Pause) He had a seizure. That’s what they said. Dead. The guide went after him. He drowned too.

ERDLEY (Stunned): No.

SUE ANN: My brother was floating on the surface. He saw the guy grab my father’s leg. Saw both of them sink into the darkness. (Continues to smoke the joint) Little Andy saw everything. We came back with our father in a casket.

ERDLEY: Holy fuck.

DAVIS: Were you close to him?

SUE ANN gives the end of the joint – with barely anything left – to DAVIS.

SUE ANN: The worst part was seeing the moray eels bite off his head.

ERDLEY: An eel? What?

SUE ANN: (Going back inside The Morrissey): Jesus, you fuckwits, you believed me?

ERDLEY: No. Really?
