OH MY GOD, Jim Dale. Please tell somebody that you shouldn't have to explain to me again how Ned can bring people back to life. PLEASE. Because, what is this? Episode two zillion? It's like opening every episode of M*A*S*H with a detailed synopsis of the escalating conflict between North and South Korea between 1948 and 1950. We get it; it has been covered; we're not going to forget; thanks.

There's some dude standing over our beloved JD with a taser, I just know it, because once again, we are back at the School of Sadness, where Young Ned is so sad and lonely, he wakes up in the middle of the night just to sneak around and bake pies in memory of his mother. Thus, yadda, he grew up to be The Pie Maker, who at this very moment is dragging pots of flowers up onto the roof in order to bulk up Chuck's bee enterprise. Remember that? He was so excited to bust out the bees all romantical-style a few weeks back, but now the bees are on Ned's nerves. He doesn't want to haul flowers up to every roof in the downtown skyline. He sort of testily asks Chuck why they need so much honey, anyway. "It's a surprise!" she says, cutely, but Ned's in a mood. "Surprise," he says, "has never been a good word for me." Ned needs to get laid, my friends. And not through a sheet of Saran.

See? Here he is crashing into Olive in the kitchen of the Pie Hole while her cups -- and I refer here to the brassiere she may or may not even be wearing -- runneth over. "This is what it is, isn't it?" Olive breathes. "Unless that's not a rolling pin under your apron." Ned hastily validates that it is, indeed, a rolling pin, and Olive attempts to break the awkwardness by making things ten thousand times more awkward: "Oh, isn't it great we can joke?" she says, adding that these sorts of romantic mixed messages must happen all the time between adults. "In no time," she says, "we'll be looking back and laughing 'til we wet the rug." Seeing Ned's eyebrows of deep concern, she quickly adds that, you know, at that point, they'll need to shampoo the rug, possibly a few times, depending on what they'd been drinking. Hee! With a final awkward snap of her towel, she turns away, horrified, just as Chuck comes out of the kitchen carrying some pies and almost collides with Ned. "Maybe I should wear a bell," Chuck jokes. Ned: "Actually..." Chuck: "I'm not wearing a bell."
