  • "Asking Someone Out" was perfect, and "Recycling" wasn't bad either. In the first, Ned tries to ask Suzie out. In the second, the Guide is in danger.

    • Moze: I'm not a teacher, I just can't walk in there [the teacher's lounge]... or can I... (ponders). I need to stop talking to myself.

    • (Moze looks in the girl's bathroom for the guide with no result)
      Moze: If you don't believe me, then why don't you dress up as a girl and go look for yourself! (quick scene change, Ned dresses as a girl)
      : I was being sarcastic!
      Ned: I gotta get the guide, and according to this (GPS locator), it's still in there.
      Moze: You look... pretty!

    • Ned: So, after all that, I'm dateless. Moze: Not exactly. Seth: Ned, I'll pick you up around 7 tonight, we'll catch a flick and get a corndog or something. Moze: I get him tomorrow night.

    • Ned Hey Seth, Moze would like a date. Seth: Well, tell her she's got one! (Holds up the fruit, with the following caption underneath: the oblong fruit of the date palm, a staple food of North Africa) Seth: Aren't dates great? They're like buff raisins. Ned: No, Moze would like to go out! Seth: We already went out and had a great time. Ned: No, would you like to go out to a movie, tonight! Seth: Well, sure Ned, just as friends. I like you Ned, but not in that way.

    • Moze: Hey Seth, I was wondering if you wanna go out sometime? Seth: Sure Jennifer, that sounds great. Moze: Yeah, that would be fun. Seth: Of course it would be fun... and full of fresh air (They walk outside to the yard) Seth...And here we are: out! Moze What? Wait! (Bell rings) Seth Well, it was nice going out with you, Jennifer.

    • Running Gag: When Ned, Moze, or Cookie gather some recycles, a whole bunch of kids would line up (also consists of Loomer, Crony, and Buzz) and Loomer or Crony would yell "RECYCLES!" and the kids would steal the recycles from Ned, Moze or Cookie.

    • In the episode 'Recycling' Ned loses his guide, but later finds it.

    • Tips: Tip#131.VVC: You're gonna get nervous, so practice what you're gonna say. Avoid freezing and practice how to ask. Pick the right spot to ask somone out.

    Trivia (2)

    • Goofs: The tall newspaper stack and milk jugs that Ned and Cookie are carrying are clearly glued together. They barely budge when Ned and Cookie bump into each other. Plus, the stack of newspapers is clearly made from something lighter than a real stack of newspapers.

    • Ned calls his bike a "Screaming metal death-trap!" a reference to the Fairly Oddparents episode Engine Blocked where Timmy's father calls his car "A screaming metal death trap".
