Gabrielle: I can't disagree with your feelings, Malcolm, they're yours. But there is another way of interpreting that nightmare. Were you aroused by that dream? Malcolm: Sexually? I was skewered. Gabrielle: Penetrated. By a sword. Malcolm: Fine. There were some erotic elements. Gabrielle: Malcolm, what if this dream is a different part of your subconscious demanding to be heard? The part that needs sleep, food, sex. Malcolm: It's a little Freudian, but I'll go for it.
