Unable to interpret Dorothea's story with satisfaction, I looked online for other interpretations. I came upon a webpage that put enough context to the story for it to make more sense. One point I took away is that despite the older fish's experience, the younger fish remains doubtful of the response. But perhaps the more important point is that often times, we find ourselves, like the younger fish, in search of something that is in fact right in front of us. In scope of the movie,
Terry (Rachel House)

Ha "I'd say no"
Hehe breaking people in the zone
Interesting similarity between in the zone and lost souls
Weird, he retains thoughts as himself but 22 gets access to it as well from the brain

22 (Tina Fey)

Smile. Confusing spark with purpose.
I don't exactly follow the ocean story:
Dorothea: What's wrong teach?
Joe: It's just I've been waiting on this day for my entire life. I thought I'd feel different.
Dorothea: I heard this story about a fish. He swims up to this older fish and says, "I'm trying to find this thing they call the ocean." "The ocean?" says the older fish, "that's what you're in right now." "This?" says the younger fish, "This is water. What I want is the ocean."

Happy ending...
