Immediately after the leak, Extra provided a statement to The Daily Beast, which read: "As with many forms of production in the entertainment industry, the show’s creative process allows the flexibility to try different jokes and banter."

"In the end, some material lands on the cutting room floor, including remarks that may be too edgy to air on broadcast television.”

In the cut that made it to air, Billy wound up saying, "It’s going to be hard to see Toy Story the same way ever again.”
