When I was lying there in the VA hospital with a big hole blown through the middle of my life, I started having these dreams of flying. I was free. Sooner or later, though, you always have to wake up.
Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.
You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life. You’re the girl of my dreams… and apparently, I’m the man of yours.[to Lucy]
The only way this works is if you believe that you’re these people so much that you dream like them.
