Joel's describing that he dreamt of an unbreakable lead pipe.  Ellie calls the fantasy a "pipe dream" (delusions one has after smoking drugs from a pipe), implying that such a thing is impossible.

My greatest regret of not being born into the english language is that I will never have a chance to use so, so many puns.

A pipe-dream is "an unattainable hope or scheme", according to Google.  Weapons always break in The Last of Us, so an unbreakable weapon is technically unattainable (for Joel).  A cryin' shame, too, 'cause Ellie's got that invincible knife right in her pocket.  Think of all the throats you could slit with that thing.

Oh.... then I had it all wrong. I thought, pipe, as in the one you smoke. A pipe dream, I guess, would be something you would see while you were high? Man, am I an idiot.
As to Ellie's knife, she didn't craft it out of scraps. It's a sturdy factory-made knife. Joel's shit always breaks because he's not exactly an engineer.

Honestly, I think "pipe dream" originates from the fantasies one might have whilst under the effects of drugs, so you're probably right to assume that.

You're also right about Ellie's knife.  Too bad she didn't have a spare.

A spare? To lend to Joel?

Dual-wield pistols would be so useful in that game! Especially El Diablo.

Guess what? This comic inspired me to do my own take on the "weapon durability" nonsense.
Sadly, I couldn't make mine as punny as yours.

That pun was glorious!

And yeah, I also thought it was funny when I played as Ellie for the first time and realized that she possessed an "Infinite Shiv Knife". And that her tiny pocket knife was more durable that a freakin' steel pipe
