Heart: Ah, I'm so confused. Was it... was it all a dream?
Soul: Oh, honey. What ISN'T a dream?!
Brain: If a series of thoughts, images and sensations occur in the mind during sleep - then 'tis a dream.
Soul: Thank you Brain, I don't know what we'd do without ya.
Brain: You would quite literally be dead.
Soul: Brain dead, you mean.
brain: What's a person without a brain?
Soul: Um, a SOUL. Like, I'm right here. You don't have to be so insensitive, Jesus...
Brain: My apologies. Did not mean to offend, simply stated the facts.
Soul: Facts. Ha! Another concept that goes above my head. That is - if I HAD a head.
Heart: I have a head and I STILL don't get that concept.
Soul: That's because you're a feeler. You think from the heart.
Heart: And I dream from...?
Soul: Your soul. You dream from your soul.
Brain: Now THERE'S a concept that goes above MY head!
Soul: The feeling is mutual, dear Brain. The feeling is mutual.
Heart: Aw. I love when you two agree. It makes me 'skip a beat.'
Brain: If you skip a beat, we all won't be here.
Soul: Speak for yourself! I will not be defined by the boundary of a beat. I will not be defined at all. Just like a dream, dear Heart. Why think it, when you can 'dream' it?
