You don’t have to know anything about the movie to understand why this story would mean so much to Webb. Nor do you have to have seen it to appreciate Patinkin’s response. After being tagged countless times by other users, he did see it. And he did more than answer her question.
It’s true, he was thinking about his dad when he filmed that scene. He thought of the six-fingered man as the cancer that took his father from him. The raw power of that moment came from his own pain and love, channeled into his character. But Patinkin also shared the story behind his preparation. He said he prepped for the scene by speaking to his father before. Then spoke to him again when he was done. And he told this loving daughter with the same kind of hole in her heart that she can always do the same with hers. All before adding he would now keep Webb and her father in his daily prayers.
An “overwhelmed” Webb got the message. In followup videos she talked about what this would mean for her dad Dan. As well as what it has meant to her.

I didn’t think it was possible for any movie scene to be better than that moment in
