Why do you find it so hard to talk to me
Why do you find it so hard to talk to me?
In case you haven't noticed, half the time you're asleep.
And the other half of the time, you forget the first half. You're what they call in the law "in absentia": an absent parent.
That was mean.
Why do you find it so hard
to talk to me?
In case you haven't noticed,
half the time, you're asleep.
And the other half the time,
you forget the first half.
You're what they call in the law
"in abstentia". An absent parent.
- That was mean.
- Which part?
All of it.
Dad used to say,
"The truth will set you free."
Well, Dad's not here.
- It's just the two of us.
- More like one and a quarter of us...
...to be mathematically accurate.
- Don't walk out of this room, Oskar!
- What if I die tomorrow?
- You're not going to die tomorrow.
Dad didn't think he was
gonna die tomorrow either.
- It's not gonna happen to you.
- How do you know what's going to happen?
You know nothing.
You buried an empty box!
That's not the point!
His memory is there!
It's exactly the point. Dad was just cells.
Now they're on rooftops, and the rivers...
...and the lungs of millions of people
who breathe him every time they breathe!
