You incomplete me: Iron Man 2 (Spoiler Alert)

I feel incompleted

The $100 million marketing campaign for Iron Man 2 has been a rip-roaring success.  The movie, which I quite enjoyed, has already grossed more than $300 million.  And that's after only five days!  But one thing I'm a little ticked about is the much-promised wink to Jerry Maguire that didn't make the final cut. 

For anyone who hasn't seen the ad (Let's be honest, if you missed it, you probably don't have electricity or running water.  So you'll never see this posting anyway.) Tony Stark jumps off the roof and nonchalantly says to Miss Mumbles (Gwyneth Paltrow) "You complete me" before flying away.  Sadly, this very clever line didn't make the final version of the movie.  I can see why it got cut because it would have changed the tone of the scene.  But darn it, color me slightly disappointed anyway.
