As if the Guardians of the Galaxy don't have enough to contend with in Avengers: Infinity War with Thanos' quest to destroy half the universe, an unexpected visitor with the arrival of Thor, and an introduction to their new allies from Earth, they also have to endure adolescent attitude from Groot.
In the latest TV spot for the Marvel Studios ensemble film, Chris Pratt's Peter Quill steps into the role of father once more as he scolds Teen Groot aboard the Milano for continuing to play his video game. "Groot, put that thing away, no," Star-Lord says while piloting their ship. "I don't want to tell you again."

Groot responds with some world-class side eye, followed by the expected "I am Groot," delivered in a tone that's at least a step above what could be "mocking." Judging from the reaction of Star-Lord and Drax, the translation may not be appropriate for general audiences.
