In which Person of Interest fandom has no chill:
Fan: "[What was it like kissing Amy, ]and does it feel like when I do it in my dreams?"
Sarah: "Kissing Amy is like biting into the most succulent peach. It's like sweet and juicy and like a little wet. It's better than your dreams, sister."
Fan: "I'm so happy to be up here right now. And I love both of you. And Sarah, you're in [the dream] too."
