Oskar Schell:
[voice-over of letter he is writing]
You might want to know, the key wasn't meant for me. It was meant for a Mr. William Black, who maybe needed it even more than I did. I was disappointed... obviously. But I'm honestly glad that it's where it belongs. And I'm even glad to have my disappointment, which is much better than having nothing.

Transcript:
You might want to know,
the key wasn't meant for me.
It was meant for a Mr. William Black...
...who maybe needed it
even more than I did.
I was disappointed, obviously...
...but I'm honestly glad
that it's where it belongs.
And I'm even glad
to have my disappointment...
...which is much better
than having nothing.
My dad told me that New York once had
a Sixth Borough that floated away.
They tried to save it, but they couldn't...
...and it's never coming back.
As much as I want him to...
...my dad is never coming back.
And I thought I couldn't live without him,
but now I know I can.
I think that would make my dad proud...
...which is all I ever wanted."
