Favorite quote:

Pete: “You give up a few things chasing a dream.” – John Silver

Brigette: “I’m an astronomer, not a doctor! I mean, I am a doctor but not that kind of doctor! I have a doctorate; it’s not the same thing. You can’t help people with a doctorate, you just sit there and you’re useless!” – Doctor Doppler

Morgan & Gable: “You’ve got the makins of greatness in ya but you gotta take the helm and chart your own course; stick to it no matter the squalls. And when the time comes you take the chance to really test the cut of your sails and show what you’re made of. Well, I hope I’m there catchin’ some of the light comin’ off you that day.” – Long John Silver

How was the soundtrack?

Always Know Who You Are
I’m Still Here (Jim’s Theme)

How was the ending?

Pete: Rewarding, but predictable.

Pete: Don’t be afraid to chase your dreams.
