matt is an amazing dad

The original script had the kids use the time wish to bring Soos’s son from the future to meet his father and let him know that he grows up to be an amazing dad. It was very emotionally potent but we ultimately felt it came too far out of left field and robbed Soos of making a big choice for himself at the end.
