Mothers are like that, yeah they are!

Bayer Children's Aspirin Commercial (1963)

A cute little boy "Mike" and his dog visit a playmates house, rings the doorbell and asks a little girl's mom if her daughter Suzy can come out to play. Mom replies that her daughter is sick and can't come out. The boy looks concerned and asks "does she [hurts] and have a [tempature]?" Mom replies that she has a cold and still can't come out. The mom explains that she gave her daughter Bayer Children's Aspirin. "That's what my mother gives me." "That's 'cause she loves you," says the mom, "and when you feel better, she feels better, too!" In a sweet voice Mike smiles and says: "Mothers are like that... yeah, they are!"

The character of "Mike" was played by childhood actor Teddy Quinn.
