While it may look similar (because only horizontal scaling was done),
I don't think the output was identical.
Both scaling and deinterlacing cannot be undone and do have an
impact on quality (if you define quality as identity with a - possibly
hypothetical - original).
I can understand why you want to deinterlace, you should avoid
the scaling (unless I miss something and you absolutely have to
do it).
