“Finish the Sentence” with Dr.Kaufman

If I could have dinner with one person, dead or alive it would be ……… Patrick Gass, a family member who was on the Oregon Trail.

When I wake up the first thing I do or think about is  ……… Walk the dogs!

If I could remake any movie and star in it, it would be ……… The Departed.
