I doubt it; the print is not of finished quality, and I don't think it includes
all the "glue" necessary to integrate it into the plot line.

When I said the scene was included in the video tapes, what I meant was it is
included as a separate "extra feature" at the end, along with the original
trailers and some cast interviews, not that it was added in its correct spot in
the movie. Sorry for the confusion.
