"Dream Ghost" is a song sung by Dr. Akopian and two other dream ghosts (portrayed by special guest stars Amber Riley and Ricki Lake) in Josh Has No Idea Where I Am!.


In this song, Rebecca learns that Dr. Akopian is not actually with her on her flight to New York, but is actually a figment of her imagination.


Dr. Akopian:

You know the trope
In storytelling, it's a norm
When a person's in trouble a manifestation
Of their subconscious appears in the form

Of a...

Dream Ghost!
Giving advice you kinda already knew

I'm a...

Dream Ghost!
I'm really just your mind working things through

It's not clear if I'm hallucinated
Or actually magic
Let's leave it vague
It's more interesting that way

I'm gonna take you
On a journey through time and space
And in the end you realize you knew the answer all along
Honestly, it's a bit of a waste

To be a...

Other Dream Ghosts:

Dream Ghost! (Dream Ghost!)
We're other Dream Ghosts helping people on this plane

We're also...

Dream Ghosts (Dream Ghosts!)
While you're all asleep, we'll sing the refrain

All Dream Ghosts:

It'll never be clear if we're hallucinated
Or actually magic

And we're all women,
'Cause this job doesn't pay so well


Wow, so there are a lot of dream ghosts!

Dr. Akopian:

Yep, a lot of people on this plane are having predicaments.

Dream Ghost #1:

This guy is deciding
Whether or not to leave his wife

Dream Ghost #2:

This girl is wondering
If she should terminate a pregnancy

Dr. Akopian:

This lady's dreaming in Portuguese
So I'm not sure what she wants

Dream Ghost #1:

And this douche is agonizing
Over whether to buy or lease a new Porsche

All Dream Ghosts:

We are the...

Dream Ghosts (Dream Ghosts!)
Here to show you the proper way

We are the...

Dream Ghosts (Dream Ghosts!)
And the health care with this job is just okay

We'll help you with decisions if you're on the fence
And we're available for private events

We're the...

Dream Ghosts
We wish our union health plan had dental

Dream Ghosts
We pay out of pocket for cleanings
