Kramer vs Kramer

i just watched Kramer vs Kramer this afternoon,
starring Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep.
i love Dustin Hoffman.
my favorite part is when Ted (Hoffman's character) talked to his son, Billy, 
and told him that he had to stay with his mother.
Billy started to cry, but Ted acted like it's just a casual daily thing.
he didn't want to make his son even more sad.



Billy
i don't understand

Ted
the problem is that your mommy and i, we both want you to live with us.
so that's why we decided to see this man, who i told you is the judge.
and we let him decide because he's very wise and experienced about this things.
see, we talked to him for few days and wanna know what he thought.
you know what he said?
he agreed with mommy and thought it's a terrific idea if you move in and live with her from now on.
and i'm very lucky because i have to have dinner with you every once a week.
and 2 times a month we spend the weekend together

Billy
where's my bed gonna be? where am i gonna sleep?

Ted
Oh, mommy's figured that all out.
you're gonna have your own bedroom in her place

Billy
where all my toys gonna be?

Ted
at mommy's.
we're gonna take all your toys over there and buy you new ones.

Billy
who's gonna read me my bedtime stories?

Ted
mommy will

Billy
you're not gonna kiss me goodnight anymore, are you dad?
{start to sob}

Ted
no, i won't be able to do that
but i... i get to visit.
it's gonna be okay.
really.

Billy
what if i don't like it? 
can i come home?

Ted
what do you mean if you don't like it?
you're gonna have a great time with mommy.
really, she loves you so much

Billy
Dad...

Ted
huh?

Billy
don't forget to just call me up, okay?
{crying}

Ted
we're gonna be okay.
c'mon, let's go get some ice cream

gasp! i'm touched.

p.s : i don't know, but young Dustin Hoffman reminds me of Al Pacino/ Michael Corleone.
p.s.s : he also reminds me of Jack
