Hi Chip, didn't come accross as smartass at all.

Got me thinking, though. Even though the director made the decision long before they even shot it, it's still an editorial decision (imo). A film editor makes 24 decisions every second. Most of those decisions are "don't cut here". So the decision not to cut is an editorial one too. I bet you could copy that scene to your hard drive and re create a workable scene with edits. And if you had the out takes, it'd be even easier. So the fact that it can be done and they chose not to in the editing phase says a lot, I think.
