Differences between the two-part and “combined” versions of Parts 3&4:

The “combined” version feature a “clean” version of the Cactus Blossoms performance, free of credits. However, this version is missing the last 20 or so seconds of the performance, which are present only in the standalone version in Part 3.

The combined version is missing the establishing shot of Vegas that opens Part 4. Instead, it skips straight to the exterior of the Silver Mustang, with the Cactus Blossoms song fading over the shot (replacing the ambient noise present in the standalone version). The “combined” version does, however, offer a slightly more complete “clean” version of the Silver Mustang exterior shot — in the standalone Part 4, the exterior fades in from the Vegas establishing shot, but the “combined” version features a hard cut from the Cactus Blossoms directly to the Silver Mistang exterior with no fade.

The end credits start over the Au Revoir Simone performance about twenty seconds earlier on the “combined” edit, to accommodate the extra credits; the standalone Part 4 has more “clean” footage of the ARS performance.
