The Ultimate Gift (2006)
Red Stevens: You can teach someone what character is. You can tell them "do this! Do that" but at some point, the gifts need input, intuition, dreams. One needs to be the freedom to dream, then act on it. Even if you don't have a dream of your own, you can give dreams to others-help them to fulfill their dreams!
Jason Stevens: I don't know much about God or Jesus, but I can promise you His arms are meant for you!
Jason Stevens: Hello Emily, I missed you.
Emily: Whatever. Let's cut to the chase. You really blew it this Christmas
Jason Stevens: I'm sorry. I was held up.
Emily: Okay yea, well I want Christmas. i want to ride a horse.
Jason Stevens: A horse? Um... I've got a week or two left of this other thing but then i'll make a call and...
Emily: Jason, NOW!
Jason Stevens: Okay.
Jason Stevens: Do you have butterflies?
Emily: No Jason. I'm looking at the stars
Jason Stevens: You know, I set this whole thing up because I thought you wanted to go horse back riding, not your mom?
Emily: Get real. Horses are smelly and sweaty
Jason Stevens: So what's your dream, if you could dream of anything?
Emily: My dream. My dream was a perfect day and im just finishing it. My dream is to be with people I love, that love each other and that love me.
