Anybody else catch the final moments where Ned was remembering dancing with Edna and he stays "I miss that laugh" and Nelson sticks his head in Flander's window and says "Ha-Ha!! I miss it too" .. Did I miss something? They retired Edna already?

    Yea, but I swear he was talking about he was going to go dancing wih her earlier in the episode and that he was just remembering it as if it just happened. Edna also appeared in the scene and had a bunch of lines and of course her laugh. So it's not like she wasnt around to record those lines unless somebody else voiced them, which I highly doubt. It kinds came outta nowhere.

    just read that before Marcia Wallace (voice of Edna) passed away she had done most of the season already, so that means she prolly did the dance scene in some other context and they changed it around so they did in the "dream sequence" for a tribute to her...

    I belive so. It's sad, but they retiered her character out of respect. Poor Ned though, two women he truly loved taken from him. Fictional guy, but really sad situation :(

    At least they did it gracefully instead of just killing off her character...

    Also, the lines were probably recorded sometime before her passing. Voice actors regularly record their lines well in advance. The writers probably had the idea long ago, but re-worked the animation to fit with the situation.

    Yup! :thumbup: you beat me to answering it haha :P

    Seriously tho I didn't see that happening in the show. It went way off the rails, but in a good way I guess. I wonder if we'll ever see him again and if so if he'll be using his newly acquired powers.

    I'm sorry, but as a tribute to Mrs K/Marcia Wallace I thought it was kinda lame (the last 30 seconds aside). My daughter actually had a cool idea: have all the actors reminisce in person of their memories working with Marcia, interspersed with clips of Mrs K from the show.
