# 038 <2.20> Ultimatums
(revised 01/10/2022)
Season time frame: Angela was in Paris for less than one week. So it still has to be around the end of January 1983.

The tattoo on LORENZO LAMAS' right shoulder can be seen again (compare # 035 and 036).

The establishing clip of Paris — a view of the Arc de Triomphe from Avenue Kléber in northeastern direction — is stock footage from a movie library.
The filming location for the Café Michel, the sidewalk café in Paris (scene with Angie and Phillip), is the building at the south-western corner of Midwestern Street (nowadays Midwest Street) and French Street on THE BURBANK STUDIOS (WARNER BROS. STUDIOS) backlot. It is adjacent to the building that portrays the Tuscany County Building.

Maggie's movie script is entitled "Tangled Vines". Inside joke: "The Tangled Vines" is the title of # 003.

Early script drafts contained more scenes concerning Julia's thoughts about leaving Falcon Crest, which were omitted in the final version:

  • Removed from act 1 (in later drafts, act 2) was a scene with Julia, Lance and Apollo on the veranda of the Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion. Julia is having fruit and cheese for lunch, Lance is working with Apollo. Lance discusses Tony with his mother — and her opportunity to start over with him.
  • Also omitted was a night scene on the veranda (act 3) when first Lance and then Emma talk to Julia. Lance says he finally located Tony in Venezuela. Emma concludes that her sister can leave Falcon Crest to be with Tony, but she will never be free unless she faces Angela.
Deleted scenes: The following filmed segments were removed from act 1 in post-production:
  • Vickie and Nick are in a hot tub in the backyard of Nick's house. Maggie visits them to talk about their wedding plans.
  • Angela and Phillip arrive in New York on the plane from Paris at night. While their baggage is loaded into a limousine's trunk in front of a building at John F. Kennedy Airport (filmed on the backlot of THE BURBANK STUDIOS a.k.a. WARNER BROS. STUDIOS), Angela orders Phillip to set up an appointment with Henri Denault for the following morning.
The establishing clip (stock footage from a film library) of New York features a building that is different from the Whitewood Industries headquarters (compare # 019). Obviously, Henri Denault has another office there.
It is actually the River House, an apartment building in Manhattan in New York City (filmed in southeastern direction).

Product placement: Cole wears Nike sneakers.

The original name for Rip, Linda's golden retriever, was Barney in early script drafts.

Emma drives a blue-gray 1982 Ford Escort Wagon now.


Uncredited extra KEVIN TRACEY appears as the thick-eyebrowed Tuscany Valley gentleman again — this time as a patron in the restaurant at the Tuscany Valley Inn.
Compare # 185 for a list of all his appearances throughout the series.
For details about the extra, compare # 001.

Early script drafts contained the following scenes, which were omitted in rewrites:
  • A scene for act 3 had Maggie work on her script with pencil and notepaper at a picnic table. Vickie asks Maggie to help her convince Chase that her relationship with Nick is right.
  • An act 4 segment suggested Vickie be doing garden work in the front yard of the Hogan house. Visiting her, Chase says he does not want to lose her.

Henri Denault falls to his death from the Gorman Bridge in the Tuscany Valley.
The filming location is the bridge over Lower Big Tujunga on Tujunga Canyon Road in Greater L.A.
