Ted Kramer's wife leaves her husband, allowing for a lost bond to be rediscovered between Ted and his son, Billy. But a heated custody battle ensues over the divorced couple's son, deepening the wounds left by the separation.
The famous ice-cream scene, where Billy challenges his father by skipping dinner and going straight for dessert, was completely improvised by both Dustin Hoffman and Justin Henry. Director Robert Benton liked the scene so much that he decided to keep it in the film.
I love you, Billy.
Billy Kramer: I love you too, Mommy.
Ted's job interview takes place at 4pm on Friday, Dec.22nd (during the office Christmas party). The next scene has Ted and Billy visiting Ted's 'new' office. Ted tells Billy "It's Saturday, most people take the day off". Ted's office already has his name plate, pictures of Billy on the wall, and work assignments. This could only be true if a week had passed between the 2 scenes.
