Marni:  Hey. Hey Devan. How are you? Hey, what’s going on? What…Why are you taking my hand? What’s wrong? Are you OK? What’s…What’s that? Why…Why are you writing a six on my hand?

Devan:  That’s how many weeks I have left to live.

Marni:  What?

Devan:  I have cancer.

Marni:  What?

Devan:  I’m dying.

Marni:  Oh my God. No! But…Why? This can’t be happening.

Devan:  That’s the way life goes sometimes.

Marni:  What…But…Why…

John:  Marni, you alright? You having a bad dream?

Marni:  Oh my God. Yeah. I…I had this dream that my friend, Devan, had cancer. God, it was awful. She was telling me that she was, like, she only had a few weeks to live and…Oh my God. I’m so relieved.

John:  I’m sure it was just a dream. What do you say we go gamble? Make some money?

Marni:  OK. Yeah. Yeah. That sounds good.

John:  Come on.

Marni:  OK.

討論

When Marni falls asleep, she sees a vision of Devan walking toward her on a creepy stair case. Devan tells her she is dying of cancer and Marni is shocked.

All this excitement causes her to toss and turn in her sleep. John notices that she’s having a nightmare and wakes her up. When she comes to, she believes it was just a bad dream. Marni doesn’t know yet that Devan has cancer.

What does this scary dream mean? Will Devan really be dead in six weeks? How was Marni able to communicate with Devan in a dream? Is she psychic?

If Marni was a psychic, she should go see Devon, tell what Devon is up to and charge a consultation fee.  But I know she was not because I saw her still doing English Baby skits  more than five years after this skit was made. Of course, I am happy she is still with us and very appreciative for her and her team’s good works. Thanks.

Dreams are in general related to our living experience. For example: if we don’t mind NBA, we never have dream about it.

one reason or theory  to expalin that kinda prophetic dreams is that our dreaming mind is able to piece together bits of information and observation we normally overlook and we don`t seriously concider¡¡i concider that dreams more epics than propethic sometimes…cuz are so vivid and we cannot to ignore them¡¡
