The last point is not unlike a snippet being shown in a film studies class as an example of directorial style.
There was a question before about somebody snipping a scene from a film to use the background as part of their own not-for-profit video. I think that crosses the line as re-purposing. But as a practical matter it was intended only for friends and family members. The risk is their choice.
What you propose is legal and ethical from my non-lawyerly perspective. And if it only goes to Gary it\'s impractical that you\'d ever be challenged by somebody who disagreed.
