Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Kevin catches the bad guys stealing the money from Duncan's Toy Chest and breaks a window to sound the alarm. The bad guys follow Kevin to an "abandoned" house in which he has set up booby traps. After nearly defeating them, Kevin calls the police and almost escapes when the burglars catch him and take him to Central Park with the intention of killing him. Kevin is rescued by the Pigeon Lady, the crooks are arrested and the money is returned. Kevin's mom finds him at the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center and takes him back to the hotel where in the morning they find a ton of presents from Mr. Duncan. Kevin sneaks out to wish a merry Christmas to the Pigeon Lady, giving her one of his turtle dove figurines. Kevin's father receives a bill for lots of money that Kevin spent and he screams.

Kevin McCallister: Howdy do. This is Peter McCallister, the father. I'd like a hotel room please, with an extra large bed, a TV, and one of those little refrigerators you have to open with a key. Credit card? You got it.

Question: After Peter yells at Kevin "You spent $967 on room service?!", where does Kevin run off to? It's not clear from what's onscreen.

Answer: He's heading back to the hotel most likely to apologize for spending such a huge amount.

Answer: It's Kevin's dad who screams out. You can tell because Buzz looks at the bill, smirks, and says, "Oh, Dad." I've always interpreted it as Kevin running away. The joke is that Kevin's dad screams so loud from the hotel room that Kevin can hear him from the park. So Kevin wouldn't want to face his dad.

I just watched the clip on YouTube and yeah you're right, it is his dad. The sound of his voice when he yells "Kevin" sounds exactly like Buzz, so it probably conditioned a lot of viewers such as myself to accept it as Buzz's voice for the whole line.
