Do you like me more...?

In the movie Road to Perdition, Mike, son of Sullivan, asks him a question: "Pa, did you like Peter (Mike's brother) more than me?" To which Sullivan replies: "No. I loved you both the same".
Mike: "But you were different to me"

I guess this questions passes through the minds of almost all kids. They ask the same to their parents and get the same reply. They stare at that answer, liking it, but not completely convinced... a little bit puzzled: How can one like different people the same?... They get convinced later. But it takes years... and parenthood for that.
