When Dave Kim was giving examples of how John Hughes already taught them how to throw a "...big-*ss birthday rager" via scenes from Sixteen Candles VHS, a cut of a scene was shown that wasn't available until the late 1990's. The scene in question is where Long Duk Dong was in a tree and fell on Jake Ryan and yells "bonsai!". That version of the scene was never included in the VHS, Beta or Laserdisc versions. That cut did not appear until the 1st DVD release in 1998. See more
