Why would you say such a thing?

Because I have to make you
understand.

WAYNE
Youíre lying.

ALFRED
Because you are as precious to me
as you were to your own mother and
father and I swore to them that I
would protect you and I

WAYNE
Youíre lying!

ALFRED
Iíve never lied to you. Except when
I burned Rachelís letter.

Wayne turns on the old man, furious.
WAYNE
How dare you use Rachel to stop me!

This is the major bit that was cut out, and other than the "Except when I burned Rachel's letter" line, I think it was the best part of the scene.

I mostly wanted to hear Bruce say "You're lying" with a level of uncertainty in his voice.

Still, the whole part about failing as Bruce Wayne definitely should have been left in, IMO.
