Ya know, I wondered about this answer. With 2 deuces in hand, it's ALWAYS the same hand (FH=4OAK). If your answer is correct, it's a technicality, not really true. You're always going to throw away the odd card (that makes the pair), not stand on the FH. The worst you can do is make 4OAK even on the draw.
