Hiking in Jack London Park

Justin : I had a weird dream last night.
Rebecca : Yeah ?
Justin : Yeah that your mother and my sister were singing show tunes in tomato-red dresses.
Rebecca : That’s so bizarre,’cause I actually had the exact same one only in my dream, we found out we were orphans.
Justin : That’s a good dream. All right, tell me more.

Justin : I like pirates.
Rebecca : I know. Tell me yours.

Rebecca: Me?
Justin: God, you make everything feel possible. You make me possible. –Brothers & Sisters
