That particularly includes the willful sacrifice friendship requires of one another: Woody goes from resenting Buzz in all his technical awesomeness to saying, “forget me, go save yourself” at the second act break. After Woody humbles himself for the one he envies, Buzz in turn forgives Woody, and they both get what they want together. Woody bears with Buzz, Buzz bears with Woody. (Galatians 6:2)
But of course, the path to turning their rivalry into a friendship is a rocky one, as it starts with them each wanting to get their own idea of home: Woody being Andy’s favorite toy again, and Buzz going to fulfill a mission that does not exist. Yet because of these impossible goals, they both wind up instead inside the home of toy horror. It puts Sheriff Woody into a rethought process on what it means to be there for Andy, and it puts Buzz Lightyear into an existential crisis. Woody realizes how pathetic of a toy he really is, having only a pull-string as his one accessory, and Buzz wonders why Andy would want a toy over a space ranger. Woody is demeaned by being Sid’s first choice to launch with a rocket, Buzz is demeaned by a tea party. In both cases, they each feel like Job, having lost everything they once knew, or maybe like David, who wrote many of the Psalms based on his suffering throughout 1 and 2 Samuel.
