Alternate version of the kitchen scene from Hannibal (2001). Who the hell made the decision not to use this?!

“How did you feel when you heard about my late neighbor, Miggs? You haven’t asked me about it.”
“I was getting to it.”
“Weren’t you glad when you heard?”
“Were you sad?”
“No. Did you talk him into it?”
Dr. Lecter laughed quietly. “Are you asking me, Officer Starling, if I  suborned Mr. Miggs’ felony suicide? Don’t be silly. It has a certain pleasant symmetry, though, his swallowing that offensive tongue, don’t you agree?”
“Officer Starling, that was a lie. The first one you’ve told me.”
