HERE'S WHAT THE ACTORS HAD TO SAY:

Tom Hanks on the relationship between Fred and Lloyd:["Fred, was literally one of the people who loved Lloyd into existence. In our movie, that's what happens, and, Lloyd is so much, he's a better everything. He's a better son, he's a better father, he's a better husband, he's a better journalist, he's a better friend, all because a guy, who had no reason to do so said, you're very special, and I think you're great exactly as you are."] SOUNDCUE(:29 OC: . . . as you are.)

And here he is accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Emmys... touching stuff.

And there's this... I doubt Fred (or Mrs. Rogers) would approve.
