Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

The McCallisters are going on holiday, this time they lose Kevin at the airport and he gets on the wrong plane. His family are in Florida and he is in New York. After going toy shopping, staying in an expensive hotel, and terrorizing the 'wet bandits' in his uncle's empty house, he finds his family at the end. His mother finds him at a Christmas tree and the whole family spends Christmas in New York.

Factual error: No airport in NYC has the view of the New York City skyline that Kevin has when he realizes that his family is in Florida and he's in New York.

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.
