It's a fact of making a movie that not everything filmed will make it into the final product. In Deadpool (opens in new tab)'s case, it means a lot of jokes we won't get to see. Star/producer Ryan Reynolds recently told Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab) he would often improv 10 or more jokes for certain scenes, most of which had to be left behind, including his personal favorite:
"Blind Al (Leslie Uggams) says something about our duplex we live in. I say, 'This isn’t a duplex — it’s hepatitis holding still,'" he told EW. Which… I mean, it's a fine enough joke, but I'm surprised at how tame it is compared to the absolutely vulgar quips that Reynolds tosses out in the final cut.
Maybe he just likes it because of the movie it references? "That was one of my favorite lines, which is sorta slightly stolen from Funny Farm: 'This ain’t a bridge — it’s termites holding hands.' So I can’t take credit for it," Reynolds admitted. Oh well. He'll get more chances when Deadpool 2 (opens in new tab) lands in 2018.
