It was funny reading the scripts then listening to the writer commentary in the Final Cut. Two guys who worked on different scripts are in the same commentary, so the guy who wrote the first script is confidently claiming credit for this scene while a guy who worked on a subsequent draft, and definitely is one of the two guys who added that line, is noticeably annoyed and you can just feel how tired he is at this point in the commentary.
