"Time to change my ringtone... something by Keane?"

"Look, just put it on vibrate. Most people do these days."
Ned goes ashen. "Vibrate? Vibrate. No problem-o. Be back in a sec, I've just got to Ask Jeeves something."

"Have you looked in the freezer, Ned?"
"........ Yeah I did but it wasn't there. Catch ya on the flippity-flop."

Ned's prize possession? "A disposable camera photo of me and Teddy Sheringham getting pissed backstage at a Blur show! Man, those were the days! Yes, that is a copy of Loaded Denise van Outen is holding in the background there! So '90s!"

Ned is having breakfast in a hotel.

"How are your Bran Flakes, sir?"

"THEY'RE TASTY TASTY VERY VERY TASTY... THEY'RE VERY TASTY!"

"Please sir, have some consideration for the other diners, don't sing-shout your reply!"

"Oh come on, you set that up for me! You've seen the ad, haven't you?"

"No."

"Oh for fuck's sake... go on, get me a grapefruit."

"OK boomer."

Ned wears a face mask with "I'm Eating Out" written over the image of a waggly pink cartoon tongue and within 20 mins is told to replace it it with something more workplace appropriate.

"But I've ordered 1500 of these! I didn't realise the Covid had spread to all of your funny bones."

"Guys, really dig all that crazy rock 'n' roll music, daddio! Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, Bill Haley and the Comets, even far-out stuff like Eddie Cochran... oh fuck I've lost it completely. I've lost it completely... I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe me... they'd think that I'd finally lost it completely... that's Radiohead! I've got my modern mojo back!"

Ned starts recording his memos into his phone while on his evening walks.
“Sounds like you’ve accidentally started a podcast, Ned,” chortles a colleague.
 “I haven’t, have I?” Ned smiles as tears build in his eyes. “Oh my giddy aunt, I’ve done a podcast!” His expression turns earnest. “Is it... charting?”

"You have to put it online first, Ned," explains Thirty-Something Terrance.

"Can somebody do that for me?"

"I'll do it, Ned," confirms Good-with-Computers-Gerald.

"Great! So you connect my phone to the computer, or-"

"Do you have Bluetooth?"

Ned stares into thin air for some time.

"What?!"

"Easy, Boomer... you can do this!"

Ned is getting surprisingly good at Red Dead Redemption 2, so much so that he takes a week off work to submerge himself in it and tells the wife she and her new partner can have the lad this weekend, even though it's his turn.

Ned passes Jimmy the Janitor when he clocks out.

"Hey Jim, there's this new thing the kids are saying now... 'hang tough!' So 'hang tough' Jimmy!"

"See you next Tuesday, Ned!"

"Eh? Aren't you working the rest of the week?"
