DYLAN: But your family....
BARRY: They understand, baby. Mom and Dad told Uncle Merrill and Aunt Sally. They all send their love. They wanted to see my brother, Matt.
DYLAN: I remember Matt. He really didn't approve of us being friends, did he?
BARRY: No, but what does it matter to him? It doesn't signify what he wants.
DYLAN: You're right, sweetie. What matters is that we're together now, and that is the ONLY thing that matters.
BARRY: I love you, sweetheart.
DYLAN: And I love you, Baby. You're the piece of the puzzle that completes me.
BARRY: Your Aunt Viv's lasagna smells good!
DYLAN: Shall we go and eat, babe?
