Wikipedia says the song was written for AHDN and that there was lip synching to it.

Any one know what scene it would have been in?

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

Filming 'AHDN ' ended on April 24th whereas 'Things We Said Today ' was written in May and recorded on the 2nd June. It would have been impossible for any lip-syncing to be filmed after this date as on the 3rd of June they were in the recording studios all day and on the 4th they departed on a world tour not returning until 2nd July, 4 days before the film premiered in London.

I find it interesting in this live version of this song (video below) it sounds like they played a different chord at the beginning-- I think it would be an A minor 7 if you're wondering. Now, I always thought, on the record, it was straight A minor, but perhaps Am7 was played and the higher notes not really sounded. I just had a close listen and I could hear no evidence of that high G note played here-- and he's proper banging it out so it would be hard not to hit that highest string. 

(The song actually starts at about thirty seconds in.)
