Out of print Criterion Collection DVD features the following five deleted scenes:

The first is a scene where inspector Li is waiting outside the club where Jenny is singing (right after we saw him inside). Jenny is accosted by three drunken business men and Li comes to her rescue. Obviously, this mirrors the earlier scene where Jeff came to her rescue. It also includes a nice little reveal where we see that Jeff has seen the whole thing. The scene continues with Li taking Jenny back to her apartment and seeing Jeff watching from outside.

The second scene occurs right after the shootout at Jeff's apartment. Inspector Li arrives on the scene just as Jeff is leaving.

The third scene is Jeff and Jenny driving from the airport and arriving at Sidney's safe house.

The fourth deleted scene is Jeff and Jenny having breakfast at the house. Then Sidney arrives.

The last deleted scene occurs right after the impromptu surgery by the creek. The Hitman With No Eyes arrives on the scene and finds the bandages.
