Speaking of young lovers reunited, we cut to the pie shop, present day, to find Ned broadly smiling, thinking of Chuck. Over in the kitchen, Chuck adds a few eyedroppers full of her homeo-prozac to a pie intended for her aunts, as The Narratour reminds us that they have a social phobia and that they don't like to go outside. Next up, The Narratour will read verbatim from the Wikipedia entry for the words "Pushing" and "Daisy," just to make total sure that nobody in the viewing audience is the slightest bit confused about anything. Was this episode originally intended to be the pilot?
Ned finds Chuck in the kitchen, where she informs him that she did not sleep particularly well the night before. Ned asks if she had a "lumpy mattress," and Chuck responds that she had "lumpy dreams." We learned about those in health class, and they are absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, especially as a teenager. She tells him that her dreams have become more vivid since she became an undead monster refugee from the "Thriller" video (I'm paraphrasing), and then turns the topic to a few unsightly welts on Ned's face. She recognizes them instantly as bee stings and asks how he came to be stung by so many bees. She also tells him that it was a suicide attack for the bees who stung him, to which Ned tells her, "Not in this case. They sort of stung me, died, and flew away again, and some other bees died." Eager to turn the topic away from the fact that Ned can touch people and make them alive again, she asks if he thinks the honey of undead bees tastes different, noting that it would be "one of those little things." I know Chuck was dead for a time, but not so long that her last reference for human conversation would be in the form of early '90s observational comedy. Did you ever notice how bees that have been dead have different-flavored honey than bees who haven't been dead? What is the deal with that?
