"But then…you were always there to get me out of trouble again. Why can’t things be the way they were before?"
I just realised something right now about this line in the context of the above scene, and it’s a painful thought. Dreamworks is sending strong hints that had Rameses listened to Moses, the latter would have gotten him out of trouble—again—just like he always had. If the kid had not entered, destroying all hope of reconciliation, the two brothers could have come to an agreement like rational adults; it seems pretty clear Rameses was ready to hear out Moses at this all-too-brief moment. If Rameses had heard Moses out, although things may not be exactly as they were before, they would still be close brothers again like they always were in their youth.
Alas, we all know what happens next: Dreamworks rips out our collective hearts and stomps all over them.
