Who You Callin' A Bitch?
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

Jim Dale serves up his weekly tale of woe: Back in the day when Young Ned spent his time in the School for Abandoned Children (not its official name), he lost the ability to do much dreaming, even while wearing the monster head he used to wear when he played with Chuck. "He found," JD drones as the Claymation family Ned has conjured up in his mind falls apart, "even his imagination failed him." Digby, who obviously can never die, since we see him sleeping in a closed trunk, whimpers a sad cry for his master's broken heart. Yes, well, none of that was depressing at all.

But, ah, hope is alive, for as Ned stares up into the full moon out the window, somewhere out there Chuck is pining for him under the same moon. Now, are you kids old enough to see what I did there? That joke had layers. Come on. Get a little Ronstadt in your life, young people. Jim Dale explains that because they continued to think of each other, Ned and Chuck were together, even though they were far apart.

Well, back in the present day, they're no longer far apart, but are they really together? Waking up one morning, Ned rolls over in his twin bed to see the fresh-faced Chuck stretching awake in hers. "Are you watching me sleep?" Chuck asks. Ned quirks through an entire paragraph of Gilmorian babble before finally saying that yeah, watching Chuck wake up is like watching her come back to life. Um, isn't it romantic? Chuck smiles and goes to get up for the day but, gasp!, accidentally trips over the sleeping Digby and falls into Ned's bed! Right on top of him! Ned is horrified! Is this the end of his beloved? A moment later, no, she pops up not even slightly dead. Hooray! But, why? "Maybe," Ned says, "it wears off...maybe there's an eclipse...maybe...oh, my God, your skin is amazing..." Chuck silences him with a finger to his lips. "We're wearing too many clothes," she says, immediately stripping off her cute nightgown, embarrassing Digby no end. "I'm still wearing too many clothes," she says, confusing Ned. "You're not wearing any," he says, thrilled. That is, in fact, true, but apparently, er, apparently, she is wearing (cover your eyes!) Too Much SKIN. AAAAIEEEE! Wasn't the Halloween episode last week? Right? If so, why is Chuck now gripping her waist and pulling her skin over her head to reveal the Olive Snook beneath? HUH? Deep breaths, Al Lowe, for it is just a dream. The scariest dream in history, but still. "Don't tell Chuck," Olive whispers as she lays one on Ned, who receives it happily, but starts awake, thank God, to find that he is not actually doing the dirty with a crazy skin-suited alien hybrid, but in his sexless twin bed, back where we started this ordeal. (May I make a side note here about how Lee Pace is possibly the luckiest actor on TV right now? Did he or did he not just get up close and personal with the two most impressive sets of natural bazooms in prime time? You're the man, Pace.)
