I Didn't Just Hear That

Ned: "I broke down, I went and smoked with the kid that lives across the street from me."
Parole Officer: "Okay I didn't just hear that..."
Ned: "I said I broke down - I went and smoked with the kid that lives across the street from me."
Parole Officer: "You don't tell your parole officer that you just got high."
Ned: "Oh man, can you forget I said that?"

This pretty much sums Ned up right here. Ned doesn't think like normal people - he's missing some pretty key filters, like the one that keeps you from fessing up to drug use...to your parole officer.

Ned needs to become more of a 'go getter' if he wants to get ahead. Cindy knows this, and she preps him here. She's the man!
