This Deleted "Titanic" Scene Would Have Made The Movie So Much Better

I have a bone to pick with James Cameron.

Titanic is a cinematic masterpeice.

It features several classic lines, like this one we've all said a time or two:

As well as several scenes that still give you goosebumps, like this:

And if you own the DVD or Blu-ray, chances are you've seen one or two of the deleted scenes. Like this one, for example:

Out of all of them (and there are quite a few), one in particular stands out. Take a look at this scene:

If you know this movie like the back of your hand (which you should), you know it's right after we see Rose arrive at the Carpathia and right before Cal makes his way down to steerage to see if she made it out of the sinking alive. And if you're like me, only one thought came to mind: Why the fuck wasn't this scene in the movie?

Look at the crewmen assisting Rose as she makes her way onto the Carpathia. This is INTENSE.

Look! It's Cal's ~adopted~ daugher!

Look at the survivors shame J. Bruce Ismay with their eyes. You can FEEL their disgust at him.

And lastly, we see Rose's mom, Ruth, looking for her daughter.

It only makes sense to write a "strongly worded letter" to Paramount, asking for a rerelease of Titanic, with this scene included. Am I right?
