- Lisa and her mother discussing the popularity of the restaurant before they are seated.
- An emotional conversation between Lisa and Wendy's family in which the subject of Lisa's grandparents is brought up.
- The struggle with Richard is shortened. Shots of him pulling the knife from his chest are cut. Also omitted is a frame of his battered corpse laying on the pavement after he falls from the window.
