The scriptwriter of Neighbours reveals a moving moment from the season finale

The scriptwriter of Neighbours reveals a moving moment from the season finale ...

While the Neighbours finale was a moving and important moment in television history, some of the most heartbreaking moments never made it to the final episode.

Shane Isheev, the script producer and writer of Neighbours, posted his "favourite moment" from the finale on Twitter. It was a moment that was canceled from the show due to time constraints.

After Callum (Morgan Baker) and Melanie (Lucinda Cowden)'s wedding to Ryan Moloney's Toadie, Isheev shared a photo from the screenplay.

"This was my favorite writing moment. Unfortunately, it was cut short for time, so we never got Callum's lovely address." Isheev wrote on Twitter.

Callum gives Melanie, his new stepmother, a crystal pig ornament, in a brief but sweet deleted scene. Callum then gives Melanie a moving address in which he thanks her for "making our family whole again."

"When Mum died, I was concerned a lot about Dad and the kids, especially considering that I was so far away." The other day, I realized that all of that worry has gone. It's because you're here. Thank you for bringing our family together again."

The exchange is then capped off with a screen direction that reads "they share another warm embrace."

This was my favorite time to write. Unfortunately, the time was short, so we never saw Callum's stunning address. @CowdenLucinda was brilliant (as always) #NeighboursFinale #Neighbours

Baker left Neighbours in 2019 but returned for the show's final episode.

The actor has joined a host of well-known actors in returning to their Neighbor roles to give the Australian soap a proper send-off. Margot Robbie, Jason Donovan, Kylie Minogue, Natalie Imbruglia, and Guy Pearce, among others, have all returned for the finale.

Neighbours has come to an end, but catch-up episodes are now available via My 5 (UK) and 10 Play (Australia).
