Dreams can come true. Look at Jeff and Lester. They could have just turned into two total idiots with dreams that would never be realized and yet they turned into two total idiots whose dreams were barely realized!
During the majority of the series, the two were clearly defined. Lester was the more ambitious, dangerous, full of himself, borderline criminal of the two. He was the leader of their little duo of misfit losers. Lester was friends with Jeff because Jeff followed him. There didn't seem to be any true like between the two. Their shared bond was simply that Lester was working his way toward pure evil and Jeff was too stoned or drunk to notice or care in what direction his devilish cohort was pointing him.
Lester was always a greater danger to himself and his ambitions than anyone else. When given the opportunity to lead, Lester overcompensated for his need for adoration/worship and pushed all the wrong buttons to get his crew to work harder. When they didn't react the way he wanted, he fired them all, then had to backtrack when it quickly dawned on him that it made doing his job more difficult. Even Jeff abandoned his de facto leader during this period of lunacy.
It was music that brought these clowns together forever. Not there own, but other people's music that they then made their own. And epicness was born! Or mediocrity. Something was born as they delivered surprising and sometimes awkward renditions of their favorite songs from the 80s. At the Buy More, or a wedding, or in a hospital. The band known as Jeffster (they could have gone with Jester but it would have made them seem like a joke) had no filter for when or where they would jam. They had a need for fame and the stage was wherever they could plug in.
Eventually the stumbling duo hit a speed-bump in their relationship when Jeff stopped huffing the carbon-monoxide fumes from his van, where he slept. Suddenly, Jeff the fried loser became Jeff the clear-headed genius! And when Lester tried to murder him by filling the dining area of the Buy More with toxic fumes, Mr. Jeff punted his buddy to the big house, never to be heard from again!
Or so one would think but somehow he forgave him this murderous indiscretion and the two locked horns as bested buds who don't seem to like each other all that much, but this time with Jeff as the more logical leader. And with Jeff at the helm of this danger-to-themselves duo, the two nutjobs would get themselves in even greater trouble as Jeff's probing into the goings-on of the Buy More led the two into Castle and a Morgan inspired nap via tranquilizers.
Whether these two can survive the series or beyond will be known to those who read this after January 27th. The rest can just bask in the glory of having watched them grow into pretty much just two big overachieving losers that inspired other losers to have a dream... to dream.
