The actor then fired back to the lawyer, "Hey, I'm sorry. But let me just point out... I'm Woody! I'll say whatever I want."

It's Woody," but the kids didn't believe it. After the mother explained further to her kids, "the kids just don't get it at all. They asked where's the vest, where's the cowboy hat."
Tom then asked the kids to close their eyes and he began to speak in Woody's style. "We got to get back to Andy's room right away, guys." The kids got surprised and believed that he's indeed Woody.
