He's not the only one, in a series filled to the brim with gut-busting moments.
- From the second episode "Pop Goes the Ed", Jimmy shows Rolf some food he brought to the party:
Jimmy: I brought a quiche! Mmm! Yummy! (holds up a steaming tray)
Rolf: It is the food of the (runs finger over lips rapidly)!! THE PARTY IS CUUUUURSED!! (runs away)
- In "Ed In A Half-Shell", Eddy trains Jimmy to be more like him, and one of the ways is to throw eggs at a picture of Sarah. Instead, Jimmy ends up tossing the eggs at Ed and Edd. What's especially funny is Ed wearing his usual expression while being covered in eggs◊.
- I SAY TO-MAH-TO!!
- Yeah, well, I say you're an IDIOT!
- In "Your Ed Here," Kevin makes Eddy kiss Edd on the lips. If you listen closely, you'll hear "nooo" and a "lock n load" sound effect before Eddy kisses Edd. Kevin and Nazz's reactions are funny too.
- "Forgive me!"
- Kevin making Eddy bark like a seal and play horns with his mouth, then throwing him a fish as a "reward."
- The "nooo" is actually a mondegreeen of "Hello." Also, Ed "playing" Tic-Tac-Toe with Double Dee.
"Aw, kitty cat go meow?"
- In "The Good Ol' Ed", in a fake flashback, Edd was suffering from an extreme case of hiccups, which Ed tried to cure by holding Edd's mouth open very wide and shouting '"I AM A ZOMBIE, AND I WILL MALICE YOU WITH A SHOEHORN!" into it.
- The "sawing the air" bit in "Momma's Little Ed".
Ed: (using a saw) Vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom... I cut the air in two! This side's yours, Double D!
Edd: We can share the air, Ed!
Eddy: It's my air; I ain't sharing! Ed, stop sawing the air!
- Anytime when Edd snaps.
- His Large Ham moment in the episode "A Case of Ed" when he confronts Ed and Eddy for fooling him into thinking he has a deadly disease.
Edd: (Really mad) ARE YOU PROUD OF YOURSELVES?
Eddy: Hang on there, Hamlet. (laughs some more, while Edd fumes.)
Ed: Too rich, huh Double Dee?
Edd: LISTEN TO ME!
(Ed and Eddy look at Edd.)
Eddy: How can we not?
Edd: (Holds up "kick me" sign) This, (Ed and Eddy's eyes widen) was found on my body! You had me believe I was expiring! (Glares)
- YMMV, but when Rolf broke down Edd's door with an AXE, and the kids stampeded away with Edd's school supplies.
- In Rent-A-Ed, the trio try to pass as repairmen. After Ed makes a complete mess of Jonny's sink and causes Edd to freak out, Eddy suggests using Ed to repair the damage done. But before that, he delivers this delightful line through his clenched teeth.
- Anything involving Funny Foreigner Rolf:
Deep below the dirt and rock
There lives a bearded maiden fair
Whose kitchen pot is bigger
Than her size of underwear, HEY!
- "The beast circles with hunger! We must appease it with a sacrifice!".
- Choking at the spelling bee in "Too Smart For His Own Ed": "POPPYCOCK! Curse this monkey-ritual of English words!" (beat, awkward applause from the audience) "Thank you Nana!"
- The ending of "Dueling Eds": "Son of a gun, you insult Rolf by denying the eels?!"
- Rolf using a corkscrew to make Swiss cheese in "Stuck in Ed"
- The climax of the Valentines' Day special. "The harsh realities of your miserable lives have been restored! Thank you."
- From "For The Ed, By The Ed": "A wooden board saved you from three evil witches and a creepy-crawly? MAMA! The fairy tale that haunts Rolf has come true!"
- After getting a cow tipped on him in "Ed, Ed and Away": "Never again will Rolf store house keys in his trouser pockets..." Even better is how the split second before the cow falls on him, he has enough time to scream "Mama! A bandage for Rolf!"
- The entire "That's My Horse" sequence from "Wish You Were Ed", a traditional dance from Rolf's old country that involves slapping your partner upside the head in increasingly violent ways while shouting "That's my horse!"
- Rolf's tall tale about crossing the sea in a leather canoe in "Knock Knock, Who's Ed": "A giant sea cucumber arose from the depths with one eye, blinking and blinking and looking at Rolf like a sandwich!"
- While helping Sarah search for her diary in "For Your Ed Only": "The space beneath the rock is vacant, she who gives migraines."
- "Are you weak in the upper story?"
- Being caught on film in the ending of "An Ed is Born": "Are you stealing Rolf's soul with your film-box? Rolf will release his rage now!"
- "Excuse me Ed-boy, a moment of your time? Never use hot wax to soothe enraged lobsters. Thank you."
- His doomsday speech about school in "Out With The Old, In With The Ed." Or at least, the fact that it's a doomsday speech. Especially "The time of reckoning is upon us, half-naked Ed boys. For it is here we will be mercilessly judged."
- Everything Rolf says in "Rambling Ed", especially "THE BURDEN OF HOSPITALITY IS TOO GREAT FOR ROLF!". The Distant Reaction Shot following this scene makes it even funnier, with Sarah overfilling a tea-cup at her tea party and Kevin crashing his bike into a fire hydrant.
- Rolf's "trash talk" in "Tag, Yer Ed!"
Kevin: *Laughing at Edd* You throw like a two-year-old!
Rolf: Yeah, and two-year-olds are not even good at stuffing sausages!
Eddy: He'll show you!
Kevin: Show me what, his butterfly collection?!
Rolf: Yeah, and butterflies cannot stuff sausages, either!
Later, during the Eds vs. Kankers wrestling match
Rolf: Your garden is overgrown, and your cucumbers are soft!!
- Talking to Ed about how to break a large rock. "Must Rolf beat some sense into that overcooked noodle that you call a head?!?!"
- The boomerang from "Hand Me Down Ed" getting lodged in his trousers. The aftermath must be seen to be believed.
- Rolf using his shoes to attack a quarter in "One of Those Eds."
- In "Rent-a-Ed" when he turns up the steam in the sauna causing his towel to fall off causing everyone to run away. Even funnier is how HE was the one who got offended.
Rolf: I must protest the rudeness of your guests.
- Speaking of Rolf, in "X Marks the Ed", does he manage to get rid of Eddy's zit? Yes but he also manages to shrink Eddy's head to the size of an acorn!
Eddy: (in a ridiculously high-pitched, squeaky voice) FIX MY HEAD, YA QUACK!!
- Ed with bananas up his nose.
Ed: Buy one, get one free! Ha ha ha.
- In "A Boy And His Ed", Edd is teaching Ed and Eddy about Kevin while they plan to get jawbreakers from him. At one point, Ed and Eddy shoot spitballs at the Kevin dummy Edd made.
Eddy: Not bad, huh, burr-head?
(Ed puts a book in his mouth, chews it up, and tries to spit it out through the straw, but it backs up)
Ed: Oh no! My brain came out!
Eddy: That's too big to be your brain!
- In "Key to My Ed", Eddy is trying to figure out what a key they found opens. Edd starts to drone romantically about what it could possibly open, until Eddy tries to pry open a manhole cover, and the key flings away and ends up stuck in Edd's gap.
It's a key! It's supposed to open something! Edd:
That's right, Eddy. Something dear and personal, like a box of photographs, or a diary with pages of truth and duration, or as simple as a locket of love. It's our responsibility to see that this key returns to its forsaken owner so life can- *thunk* *beat
* Mortified? Yes. But I won't let myself fall prey to such shallow emotion. Not now. [continues talking through the shift in scenes] There's a fellow human crying for help, trying to mend the unraveled ball of yarn handed to them. Maybe that's the kind of world you wish to live in, Eddy, where the unyielding and the indifferent supersede the benevolent. I say- Eddy: SHUT UP, DOUBLE D
! Ed, you understand anything Double D said? Ed: Pass the mustard.
- The "Slide on the soap!" sequence in "From Here to Ed".
Eddy: *beat* I'm rubbing off on you, Double D!
- The Eds' disguising themselves as Jonny by dressing up in a giant papier-mache head with a crudely-made replica of Plank glued to it. Kevin doesn't even take a second-glance at the disguise and just says "Oh! Hey, Jonny!". Then, the Eds trip over a fence and get stuck because of the large head, prompting Kevin to snark, "What a freak." Then, at the end of the cartoon, Jonny walks by wearing the thing and quips "Check it out, guys! I'm inside my own head!"
- This exchange.
- This little bit:
Ed: [jumps above Jimmy] "Prepare to meet your maker!"
[Ed crushes Jimmy; Kevin crosses Ed over and whistles by]
- Then there's "It Came From Outer Ed", showing us exactly what happens when Ed comes up with a scam. It involves many parts that make no sense, including Ed telling Edd to move a bunch of rocks onto an X on the ground, despite the fact that Ed actually painted a Q. This is probably the highlight:
Ed: Nice job, Double-D! That looks just like a Q.
Edd: Excuse me? Ed, I think somewhere along the line you lost your train of thought. Your plan is irrational, muddled, and inconsequential... Is that a doggy treat?
Ed: * munching on a dog biscuit* What's the rock for, Double-D?
Edd: * bewildered, drops the rock on his foot* My foot!
Eddy: * comes into scene brutally injured* MY HEAD!
- When Ed completes his "scam" by disemboweling a stuffed bunny rabbit with his teeth:
Eddy: What's he doing?!
Edd: Embarrassing me to no end.
- Also, the final line as Ed's "scam" comes to fruition:
Ed: EVIL TIM HAS BECKONED THEM!
- Who could forget Bobo?
- Say nothing of Rolf's appropriate freakout when he realizes just what Ed has done.
Rolf: Edboy has bitten into the belly of a stuffed handcloth! (Pulls giant clam from his back pocket) QUICKLY! We must seek shelter within the bosom of Bobo!
Nazz: If you think I'm getting in that thing- (Gets cut off as Rolf grabs her and throws her in)
Rolf: YOU WILL DOOM US ALL!
Nazz: But I'm allergic!
Jonny: Listen to it gurgle, Plank! (Rolf hops in Bobo with the rest of the kids, shuts it, leaving only his legs exposed for them to run away from the above result of Ed's "scam").
Edd: (Staring dumbstruck at the previous scene with Eddy and even Ed) ...Was that a giant clam?
- Ed again (he's just made of this trope, isn't he?) in "O-Ed Eleven", this time explaining to Edd how he deciphered the map made by Eddy's older brother, as only he can:
Ed: Because I am a brother, and Eddy's brother is a brother, and Eddy is a brother to Eddy's brother, as a brother I am. *hugs himself*
Edd: Nicely put, Ed.
Eddy: Oh brother.
- Also, Double-D peers out the entrance to his house after Eddy whacks upon the door multiple times, dryly asking "...Why did you pummel my door with a shovel?"
- Before the pummeling door there's this gem:
Eddy: What're we supposed to do for an hour?
Ed: I've got an elastic, Eddy.
Eddy: Big deal...(Screen fades to black Ed stretches the rubber band and hits Eddy) YOWCH!!!
- This exchange after Double D calls Eddy out on his version of a Rashomon story in "Once Upon An Ed":
- From "Once Bitten, Twice Ed", Eddy using one of Ed's toys (he just crudely tapes a walkie-talkie to the back of a monster action figure) to trick Ed into doing increasingly stupid tasks.
Eddy: Approach me mortal, for I am the great Baron O' Beef Dip!
Ed: (Confused) Baron O' Beef Dip?
Eddy: Is there an echo in here?
- Baron O' Bee...I mean, Eddy commanding Ed to eat his mattress is the funniest bit in that sequence, especially when Ed responds with an enthusiastic "YUM!"
- Seconds later, Edd walks into the room, and is horrified to discover that Ed had somehow unhinged his own jaw and is actually swallowing his mattress whole!
Ed: (Eating the mattress, and finishes as Double D shakes in fear of seeing things he rather not see, and somehow manages to digest the whole thing into his stomach, and retaining his original form shortly thereafter) "That hit the spot!
Edd: "Ed, what have I told you about the needless taxing of one's digestive system?"
- "Wolf down the non-believer!"
- The end of "I am Curious Ed", when the Eds have failed to explain to Jimmy and Sarah where babies come from, Ed delivers this gem of a line;
: There there, Double D, it is not your fault you are so useless!
- The fact he delivers this line whilst smiling is hilarious, as is him picking up Eddy by the scruff of his neck with his teeth and flying over his house to drop him down the chimney.
- The bit from "Dear Ed", where Ed falls down the stairs like a rag doll and Jonny remarks "Wow, Ed, you go down the stairs just like Plank!"
- The bit earlier in that episode with Ed reading the cue cards was even better.
Ed: Sit down and say "Hello, Jonny".
Ed: Ask him how... he is.
Edd: "How are you", "How are you"!
Ed: I'm fine, thanks. Okay, a little hungry.
- Ed's baby picture◊. 'Nuff said.
- "Eddy's my ideal pal. Soft and cuddly, like mashed potatoes. Yum." (Said while he's carrying Eddy, a steaming kettle sound playing in the background)
- ALL of "Vert-Ed-Go", in which the Eds make a tree-house is full of this. However, Eddy's deadpan remark regarding Ed's safety has got to be the cherry on top-
Eddy: (puts a helmet on Ed's head) Put this on. It'll protect your head. From what, I don't know.
- EVERYTHING Ed says in this episode.
- When searching for a good location:
Eddy: This is the perfect spot, huh guys?
Kevin: Hey, dorks! Get out of my backyard!
Ed: Weird. Kevin already has a clubhouse here.
Eddy: Shut up, Ed!
- How about when the kids start breaking all the rules in "Stop, Look, and Ed"? Funniest moment? Jonny streaking with Plank strategically placed over his privates.
Jonny: Feel the wind, Plank!
Ed: (♪ thwack ♪ thwack ♪ thwack ♪ thwack ♪) I'm a woodpecker (♪ thwack ♪ thwack ♪ thwack) 'Cept with dirt.
- Leading up to that moment, we've got Ed all eager about touching the grass.
Ed: I'm smarter than a sign!!! *Lifts up grass and crawls underneath it*
Ed: *Pops out of grass* BOING!
- The very beginning, when after Ed causes the boys' jawbreaker-detecting satellite to take off prematurely:
Just once I'd like something to go right. *satellite hits him from his right, stretching him out* Hello! *satellite lets go, he collapses* Eddy:
*dazed, following after Ed and Edd as they chase after the satellite* Wait up! That's my waffle!
- The satellite then hits Jimmy, who can't hold on due to his manicured nails, and he falls off yelling pitifully.
- "Robbin' Ed". All of it. From Edd's Bad Bad Acting in the "infomercial" for the Thing-a-ma-jig to Jonny's superhero alter-ego Captain Melonhead being saved from getting dunked in gravy by Ed (AKA "Average Joe").
Edd: Hold your horses! This butt's been used!
- Eddy becoming a supervillain under the guise of Professor Scam to combat Captain Melonhead. At one point, he's going to flee in his escape balloon, but spends so much time gloating about his escape that it floats away before he can get on.
- The ridiculous costumes Eddy makes Double D and Ed wear as his hecnhmen, basically just underwear and socks with domino masks and a cardboard cent coin attacked to their foreheads.
- The entirety of "Eds-aggerate", especially the part with Ed interrupting Edd yet again by showing that he has a bone in his ear canal.
I found a bone! Cool, huh?
- The Ed's pretending to be the Muckie Boys Eddy has spent the whole episode lying about. This mostly consists in covering themselves with mud and yelling incoherently. Everyone except Sarah still falls for it.
- "Luck of the Ed" has the following moments:
Ed: Well, I was walking down the sidewalk, carrying Eddy's box, when I saw a bug. Hello, bug! I followed the little dickens to this tree, see? And I hit my head on that branch! (hits head on branch) Nope, sorry. It was this one. (hits head on another branch) Then, I gazed at the stars.
Edd: Ed? Please don't do that.
Eddy: C'mon, we're wasting time! Where'd ya hide the magazines, Ed?
Ed: Here we go... (pulls out a rubber chicken) ... a rubber chicken. (throws chicken) "Hide the box, hide the box", I said... (trips on rubber chicken) ... but then I tripped; hanging onto my pal's box of magazines for dear life! (falls over) I fell, and slid into a sewer.
Eddy: A SEWER?! My magazines are in the sewer?!
Edd: Seems appropriate
. You do realize that if your magazines are in that sewer, they'll be totally illegible; the text smeared by the damp sludge.
Eddy: IT'S THE PICTURES I'M WORRIED ABOUT!
- The following scene where they examine Ed.
Eddy: What's with the glass?
Edd: Eddy, please don't interrupt. (take out a cupcake) Now Ed, do you see what I see?
Eddy: So what's with the cupcake?!
Edd: Patience, please!
(Edd places the cupcake on the glass and Ed wolfs it down. Edd then sandwiches Ed's head between two slides of glass)
Eddy: What's with Ed's face?!
Edd: Will you just let me do this, Eddy?!
- Which follows with the disgusting things that Edd sees in Ed's hair.
Edd: *exasperated* Ed, there's a new invention called "soap," have you heard of it?
- "The number you are dialing is not in service."
- The "My bike!" "The magazines!" "Hat, please!" and "Eyebrow" argument.
Ed: (After Eddy stole his eyebrow) But Eddy, I can't make funny faces without that!
- Even better in the Mexican dub, where Ed says instead: "Eddy! I can't make Anime faces without that eyebrow!".
- After all that, it turns out Ed his the magazines separatly from the box, and they have to repeat the whole experience over again.
- Yet another Ed moment, from "Boys Will Be Eds": the boys (most of them, anyway) are thinking about Nazz. Ed's thoughts?
Ed: (thinking) Hello? Echo! My name is Ed!
Nazz: Hey there, Ed-*stares in silence*
Ed: *Shows a crude Nazz face drawn over his stomach.* It's you. I drew it.
Ed: Should I hang it in your room?!
- Kevin's gift is to Nazz is to have Rolf shave her name into the side of Victor's fur:
(Victor is wearing skates, and Rolf rolls him over to Nazz)
Nazz: Victor changed his name to "Nazz," just like me!
Rolf: Are you weak in the upper story?
Kevin: (nervous and sweating) Heh-heh. Later, Rolf. Kinda neat, huh, Nazz? It's sort of a gift for you.
Nazz: (notices that the skates Victor is wearing are hers) Why is Nazz wearing my skates?
(Rolf looks as though he is dumbfounded by Nazz's stupidity)
Kevin: Um, yeah, I put in new bearing so they glide real smooth, you know.
Rolf: (sounds like he's about to start laughing) Rolf will sit to the side and observe with hysterics! (he walks away, pushing Victor along)
- At the end of the episode, the Eds try to play a song to win Nazz's heart. We have Ed introducing the song with his comb and paper, and soon Edd starts playing the bongos. And then Eddy starts singing:
Eddy: (singing) Hit me! Have mercy! Dear Nazz don't give me gas! Right on! Oh yeah! Uh huh you are so rad! Oh baby! Stop me! Uh huh!
- Then it turns out that they are singing at Jimmy's house and, not only is he wearing curlers, but he offers to join their "band" by pointing out that he "plays a mean xylophone".
- Ed using a vacuum to suck up his baby sister Sarah's snot in "Is There An Ed In The House?".
- For about 10-15 seconds, no less.
- Ed's attempt at drawing a picture of Rolf includes a giant monster standing behind him. "Rolf's head is about to be crunched by a four-legged mutant bus driver."
- Jimmy and Ed's dueling bedtime stories.
Jimmy: Silly Little Jilly frolicked in the daisies...
Ed: Spewing slime from its tentacles!
Jimmy: "I'm so silly", said Jilly...
Ed: As Zorbo sucked his brain!
- "Ed, you're the motor." "I have achieved greatness!"
- Ed running off when Sarah rings her calling bell, leading to Double D and Nazz crashing the car.
- "An Ed Is Born", the one where the boys are making a video to send to Eddy's brother, is CMOF in its entirety.
Edd: Sorry, Eddy, the 'planet baron' story threw me off.
- The scene where Ed eats the camera is the icing on that cake of hilarity.
Ed: Man the helms! Dive! Dive!
Edd: (sternly) Ed, what have you done? Open it! OPEN IT!
- The last scene in this episode tops it off...
[Rolf is shown coming into the house in the background sniffing the floor]
Edd: Psst, Eddy! Rolf!
Eddy: Rolf? Did I forget to sign Rolf? There ya go, stretch. [signs Rolf's face]
Rolf: YOU HAVE VANDALIZED ROLF'S FACE, AND YOU HAVE-
[Rolf lifts up the cardboard cut-out Rolf and sees one of his chickens holding it up]
Rolf: And you have stolen Rolf's chickens yet again?!
Rolf: [to Edd] Are you are stealing Rolf's soul with your film box?!
Edd: Why, of course not, Rolf! What gave you that impression?
Rolf: Rolf will release his rage now!
Eddy: Wait, we can work this out!
[Punching sounds are heard and Eddy is thrown into a wall, destroying the other cardboard kids in the process]
Rolf: Return Rolf's chickens!
Ed: [running off] "WAAAAAAHHHH!
Rolf: RETURN THEM!
[Rolf storms toward Ed and Eddy. Meanwhile, the chickens go berserk and one of them flies towards Edd]
Edd: Shoo! Go away! Don't touch me! [Edd gets knocked over, and so does the camera]
Edd: I think your brother's got the picture, Eddy.
[the camera's batteries die and shut off]
- "Ed... Pass It On" has Ed as a roast turkey. Naked.◊
Jonny: FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!!!
Edd: Ed, you were supposed to use a REAL TURKEY!!!
Ed: Stuffing, anybody?
Eddy: (covering him back up) Idiot.
- Later, Kevin sees the Eds setting up for a fake welcome-home party for Eddy's brother
Kevin: What's with the balloons; you dorks getting married? To each other?
- "Who's Minding the Ed?" had this (yes, it's yet ANOTHER Ed moment):
Ed: Ski party a go-go! *Ed and Rolf's animals are on a sled, going down the stairs to Ed's room, Victor bleats* Hot cocoa and potato salad! Who's with me?!
- In the same vein at the end of "Too Smart For His Own Ed:"
Ed: Cookies at my house, Double-D! With lots of mayonnaise!
Edd: That's... not really necessary, Ed.
- This hilarious exchange from "Mirror, Mirror on the Ed":
Edd: Um, guys?
Edd: (Points) IMPROBABLE ALERT!
Eddy: (Looks, down, then runs away) AAHH!
Edd and Eddy: Come back, Ed!
Ed: (STILL floating) I can jump it, guys.
Edd and Eddy: No, Ed! *both grab him*
Now what? Eddy:
I'm thinking, I'm thinking. Ed:
Can I think? Edd and Eddy: NO!
- The Eds playing Truth or Dare later in the episode becomes absolutely hilarious when Ed gives Eddy the most nonsensical dare ever.
OK, I dare you Eddy, to sprout the wings of a bat and stomp like a zombie while whistling "Row, Row, Row Your Boat
" through a car wash! Double D:
*beat* Ed, try a more reasonable
- What makes this scene even better is how, during the beat, Eddy turns around and looks towards the sky, completely dumbfounded, while a hawk screeches in the distance.
- Before that, Ed takes the first turn and actually spins himself instead of the bottle.
Ed: Okay, my turn to spin! *quite literally*
Edd: Uh-oh, a fence. (runs into it) Gravy!
Ed: Aw, c'mon, Double-Dee, I don't say "gravy" all the time
Edd: Buttered toast, then.
- Rolf tries to get Ed's help in pressing his raspberry harvest into juice, but thanks to Edd pretending to be Ed there's a slight mix-up. Rolf's frustrated reactions are hilarious, culminating in:
Rolf: You are not Ed! You have cursed my raspberries to the life of salad dressing, impostor with tiny feet!
- In "Ed, Ed and Away", Ed manages to make Eddy fly by pulling on a strap on Eddy's pants, causing his hair to spin and rising into the air like a helicopter. Edd's reaction is the funniest part:
Edd: Remind me to ask how you did that Ed...
- The same episode has Edd, near the beginning, complaining about their endless series of failed scams:
It's the same thing, day in and day out... it's so monotonous! A pipe dream, at best! Ed:
You are not alone, my friend. I dream of pipes, too.
- Also, in the same episode, all three Eds are chasing after a balloon as they run through Rolf's farm and plow through several animals... Except for a cow which promptly falls on top of Rolf.
Rolf: Never again will Rolf store house keys in his trouser pockets...
- Not to mention Rolfs reaction when he sees the cow about to tip over.
Rolf: Mama! A band-aid for Rolf- *cut off as the cow crushes him*
- And again, from the same episode and sequence:
Edd: We'd have to sprout wings to reach it at that height!
Ed: Fly, Double-D, fly! *throws Edd*
Nazz: *walks by* Hey, guys, whatcha doin'?
Ed: Fly, Nazz, fly! *throws Nazz*
Eddy: She didn't even make a grab for it!
- Then, after the balloon pops...
Ed: Float, little friend, float. *tosses balloon*
- The whole episode, really. Gets even better when you realize that the show managed to make a funny and entertaining episode about chasing a balloon.
- The entire episode 'They Call Him Mr. Ed', including the gratuitous use of the word "up", Ed's cardboard elevator, and Edd and Eddy's reactions to espresso:
Edd: Well that was an upturn for the worse.
Eddy: I almost upchucked!
- The bit where Ed carries something into the homemade elevator cartoon-style with one of him at each end and the part where he runs into the invisible barrier Double D set up before! Cartoon logic at it's best, folks!
Ed: Forgot about the wall...
Edd: Ed... Not that you'd understand the geometry involved in such an endeavor, but... That isn't how you go "through" a maze!
Ed: Hang on, Double-D, I'll think of something.
- In "Cry Ed", Eddy tries to injure himself to get the kids to worry about him and not Jimmy. To do so, he prompts Edd to punch him, but Edd refuses to do so. Eddy taunts Edd for being chicken. Ed looks at this exchange with confusion, then smiles with an idea before walking off. Later, a shadow casts over Eddy and Edd, which prompts this little dialogue:
(Holding a house over them
) Here, Eddy! Lots of hurt, hold the onions. Edd:
(Completely and rationally freaks out
) OKAY FINE I'M A CHICKEN!
(quickly runs away
) Um... Ed? (Ed drops the house on Eddy
) Edd: ED!
What in heaven's name were you thinking
) Absolutely nothing, Double D
- The bit in "Quick Shot Ed" where Rolf fell into his own sausage machine and got turned into a giant hot dog, which prompts him to freak out, going, "I am a wiener!"
- From "Laugh, Ed, Laugh":
- Eddy using Ed as a shovel while Ed gleefully chants "Dig a hole, dig a hole, dig a hole..."
- Ed's explanation for where the other kids went to, coupled with the dramatic theremin music that suddenly starts playing.
Ed: The kids entered a wormhole and were spewed into a alternate universe! Simple.
Eddy: You're simple.
- Double-D locks Eddy in a shed, and tells Ed to hide the key "discretely." Ed promptly places the key between two slices of bread and begins chewing on it. Then Eddy gets back to normal and finds they're locked in the shed:
Eddy: Where's the stupid key?
Ed: (happily) I ate it! Discretely.
- "Jonny, you dropped your face. I'll get you a new one!"
- "HAM AND EGGS WITH BUTTERED TOAST!!!" (bites off a piece of fence)
- Eddy tries to impress someone without going crazy.
Eddy: Guys, wait!! Um.... *Wraps tongue around his head like a turban*
Ed: Aw, c'mon, Eddy, we've seen that before! Now you're boring us!
- Ed eating the "ice cream cones" they were making as part of that days scam, which were really just tennis balls coated in paint. When Double D tries to stop him, Ed tells him to "get your own".
- In "Tag Yer Ed" when the Eds are about to pour milk into their bowl of Chunky Puffs:
Eddy: I love Chunky Puffs!
(slab of expired milk falls out of the carton into the bowl)
Eddy: I hate chunky milk.
- The Kankers want to fight their "boyfriends":
Lee: Ha! I say we wrestle you! May and Marie are great at purple nurples!
Eddy: YOU'RE ON, KANKERS!
Ed: What's a purple nurple?
Edd: I think it has something to do with, um, strudel filling.
- The very fact that Ed could get rid of the Kanker Sisters at any time, if he weren't bound by one rule:
Eddy: Give 'em the burrhead bump, Ed!
Ed: *Walks over with all three Kankers grabbing on to him, trying to beat him up* I can't, Eddy! My mom says I can't fight girls.
- From "Home-Cooked Eds", these particular moments:
Ed, gimme a hand! (Ed gives him Double D's hand, starts snickering) Ed:
Found one! Double D:
(deadpan) This joke is older than my Mesozoic fossil collection, Ed. Ed:
Whoops, there it goes! (spring sound
) Yup, my brain stopped.
May: Hey Marie, can you flip me over, I'm getting crispy. (Marie ignores her) MARIE, FLIP ME OVER, I'M GETTING CRISPY! (she still ignores her) MARIE!!
Lee: Shut up, May! (Literally flips May over, chair and all)
- In the first scene of the episode, Eddy crashes Rolf's tractor into a house. Ed proceeds to criticize the way he crashed it.
Eddy: (holding the steering wheel) Wahoo! Demolition Derby boys! Pretty cool crash, huh Ed?
Ed: (matter-of-factly) I've seen better, Eddy.
Ed: (same tone) Look, the tractor is still intact, you could have done a lot more with the tree, and you hardly wrecked Kevin's fence. (takes the steering wheel from Eddy) And the steering wheel should be rammed over your head, like so! (easily rams it through his head)
Ed: (back to normal) Eddy's got a trailer!
- The Eds finally realize who the trailer could belong to:
Eddy: You hear that? *Laughter* ...Kankers!
Edd: And we're out in the open!
Ed: *Rams Edd and Eddy into the trailer door* Quick! Hide in here!
- Then, when the Kankers settle on what they (read: Lee) want to watch:
*Inside the TV* Beat
Eddy: Uh...We use new "Stench Away Deodorant"! *Uses Ed's head as a deodorant stick on Edd's armpit* Keeps me dry and fresh!
Lee: That junk wrecked my clothes!
Marie: Gimme that thing! *Takes remote*
Lee: Alright, alright!
Eddy: *While Edd is making siren noises* Requesting backup! We're in hot pursuit!
Ed: It's my turn to drive! *Rams head into screen* BEEP! Transfer, please! *falls over*
Kankers: It's our boyfriends!
- During Eddy's plot to remove the Kankers from his lawn, Jimmy, while wearing goggles and clutching onto his tricycle's handles, comes blowing along with the debris out of nowhere.
Jimmy: My thighs! They're burning!
- Zappity zap zap!
- Eddy trying to use an old rusty pipe as a digeridoo and failing in "Know-It-All Ed". Ed then tries and somehow inflates Eddy like a balloon for a few seconds.
Ed: I am a whale, Eddy, an endangered mammal! Hug me.
- In "To Sir with Ed":
Eddy: My brother told me that chicks are only wowed by one thing: cash!
Edd: That's so superficial, Eddy! Females admire more meaningful things. Like sincerity, respect, and good grooming.
Ed: And potato chips!
- From "Eds-Aggerate":
Eddy: We, the Eds, are smarter than-
Eddy: Um, no, Ed.
Ed: Buttered Toast?
Edd: Oh, boy...
Ed: A bus driver??
- Everything from "Who, What, Where, Ed", in which the Eds are forced to make a bunch of trades just to get an egg. Which Ed ends up breaking while trying to "free the chicken" inside.
Ed: I think the chicken's gone bad.
Eddy: Like my luck...
- Jonny had clams that the boys needed, in which he gives this line.
Jonny: Listen to the clams gurgle in the bucket, Plank.
Eddy: Clams?! What's with clams? *rings a doorbell* Could you spare some clams?
Edd: *Ringing another doorbell* Pardon me; you wouldn't happen to have any clams, would you?
Eddy: *At another house* Say, you haven't seen any clams around here, have you?
Edd: *At yet another house* Could we borrow a cup of...clams?
Ed: *At final house* Can Eddy come out and play?
Eddy: I'm right beside you, Ed.
Ed: Hi, Eddy!
- Jonny wanted an anchor. Of all places, the Eds think to go to the Kankers' trailer, disguised as a really tall man with a mustache and a pimp hat. (Actually just the Eds on each other's shoulders covered in a trench coat, with Eddy on top.)
Eddy: Greetings, ladies. Um, we're doing a survey, and-
Edd: *From underneath the coat* Eddy!
Eddy: Oh, uh, ahem *makes voice deeper* I mean, I'm doing a survey, and-
Lee: Our mom's not home!
Marie: Yeah, so take a hike! *Kankers laugh like hyenas*
Eddy: I was wondering: How many anchors do you own? *Big nervous grin*
May: That's stupid!
Lee: You look familiar, mister!
Eddy: *Lee's interjection caused Ed to walk back and laugh* *Grunts* Stop it, will ya?
May: You've been on an infomercial?
Eddy: Um, no-yes! Quite famous, actually. Want my autograph?
Ed: *pops out of costume* I'm the legs!
Edd: *Costume is ruined* Oh my, exposed!
Marie: It's our boyfriends!!
Lee: *Dreamily* Eddy's such a weasel...
Marie: Group hug! *Lips turn giant as she puckers up*
May: Let's kiss 'em!
Ed: Oh no, not me!! *Runs off, while the Kankers all land, while trying to kiss their boyfriends, on their airbag lips.*
- From "Three Squares and an Ed", in which Eddy tries to get Ed out to freedom.
Eddy: Now all we have to do is go up the- *stairs aren't there* What happened to the stairs?!
Ed: My parents took 'em down because I am grounded!
- From "Will Work for Ed", Ed is ready to leave the house for Rolf's: he walks to a car, gets in, and starts the engine while Eddy laughs.
Edd: Ed, no, you're too young to drive!
- Old Rolf in "Take this Ed and Shove It."
Rolf: (To Eddy) Hello, Kevin.
Eddy: Huh? I'm not Kevin.
Rolf: Who is this Kevin you speak of? (Beat) ROLF'S TRACTOR IS NOT FOR SALE!
(Cut back to Rolf, staring angrily at Eddy. Rolf steps back smiling, but then suddenly grabs Eddy)
Rolf: YOU FOOL! (Rolf sets Eddy down on top of a morbidly obese Wilfred) Rolf does not love you, Nazz girl.
Rolf: YOU TAUNT ROLF'S TURNIP, JONNY THE WOOD BOY?! GET OFF ROLF'S PROPERTY BEFORE ROLF GETS HIS BEATING STICK!
- Eddy impersonating several of the Cul-de-Sac kids at the beginning of "Stiff Upper Edd."
Eddy: (Dressed as Nazz)
That's so totally radi-cool. (Cocks hip and runs off) Eddy: (Comes back dressed as Kevin, with a cardboard box on his head dressed to resemble Kevin's)
Looks like a hoot, and only a quarter to boot. (Runs off) Eddy: (Comes back dressed as Sarah)
I wanna try, I wanna try! How bout you, Jimmy? (Eddy bends over and turns around to show he's painted Jimmy's face on the seat of his pants) Eddy:
Tee-hee, I'm so cheeky
, I'd pay a quarter!
- "In Keeping Up wWith the Eds", Ed mowing Double-D's lawn. "ATTACK THE WIBBLES!"
- When they use fertilizer all over the Cul-de-sac lawns, at first there's nothing... but then the Eds scream as all the lawn grass spontaneously grows 20-feet tall and pushes them up top.
- From "Read All About Ed": the rain starting and stopping every time Edd says "Summer rains, you can never predict 'em!"
- Ed somehow gluing his head to a table in "Ed Overboard".
- Ed's cheerfull acceptance of his own doom when the Kankers kidnap him to cheer up May.
Ed: Welp, thats it for me!
- Anytime the Fourth Wall is broken.
- "One Plus One Equals Ed." The whole episode; the Eds take a venture into learning about the mysteries of the world, before things start to slowly unravel.
- For a specific moment, Eddy plucking Sarah's mouth clean off her face before she bites him on the ear.
Eddy: Get her off, Double D!
Edd: (happily writing notes down) Not a chance!
- Eddy stripping Jimmy of his outline before fashioning it into a hairdo, all as the now-liquid Jimmy slowly slips into a drain... and then into a pitcher.
Jimmy: Fate has dealt a cruel hand. Darnit.
- Eddy stumbling around and accidentally finds himself behind the houses seen in the background, like he walked behind a background prop.
Eddy: Einstein's got nothing on this!
- "Don't look now, but there's a cow hovering just overhead..." And then said hovering cow makes a crowing noise, like a rooster.
- Before all the madness, there's the Eds rummaging through Ed's garage:
Eddy: (slipping a bra out of a drawer) Woo-hoo, PG-13!
Ed: Um...that's my mom's, Eddy!
(Eddy drops the bra and gags)
- Ed playing around with the spinner from a washing machine.
Ed: Whats this, Double D?
Edd: Spin it, and learn!
Ed *spins it, but his tongue is caught on the spinner and pulls his entire face around it* It's a face scruncher! Cool!
- The crown jewel in Jonny's repertoire of annoyance from "Shoo Ed": cracking his joints to make a sickening crunch sound. Which then bites the Eds at the end of the episode, with them being trapped in a cage with Rolf's agitated animals as Jonny cracks his joints to extort the Eds into him letting them go.
Edd: EDDY, GIVE HIM THE QUARTER!
- "Rambling Ed" has the scene where Eddy convinces Ed to move out by asking him of he does and forcibly moves Ed's lips and imitates him to get a fake answer. Ed then proceeds to do the same thing with Eddy as the puppet.
Eddy: (as Ed) I like it, Eddy. I have one eyebrow and the brain of a bug.
Edd: Going out on one's own requires planning, Eddy. There's so much work involved in—
Ed: (as Eddy) Relax, Double-D. I'll help him pack.
- The golden Bizarro moment in "Rent-A-Ed" when Jonny, stuck in a tree, somehow learns from Plank of all the trouble Eddy is causing in his kitchen. Eddy gapes a moment before covering Plank's mouth and sneaking off.
- "Run For Your Ed" gives us a handful of hilarious moments:
- Kevin's completely deadpan reaction to finding a slumbering Ed in his now-empty refrigerator:
(Opening the fridge door to show Edd and Eddy) I believe this
belongs to you? Eddy:
(Proceeds to laugh hysterically) Edd:
' Oh, Ed! Sleepwalking again??
- Followed immediately by Eddy deciding to use an air horn to wake Ed up, and the big guy's rambling upon waking up.
Ed: Private Do-Not-Enter is ready for duty, chief! (Salutes and whacks himself in the head with the ship-in-a-bottle now stuck on his finger)
- The Eds' attempts to get the aforementioned ship-in-a-bottle off Ed's finger, including soap (which doesn't end well thanks to Ed's irrational fear of the "disgusting detergent of the deep") and sticky tape.
- While that's going on, the Kankers are trying to find the ship-in-a-bottle themselves. Mass chaos ensues.
Jimmy: I'm scarred for life!
- When the Kankers finally track the bottle to the Eds, Double-D stares at them blankly for a moment, looks back at Ed and Eddy in the other room as they try to remove it, then back to the Kankers. Without saying a word, he calmly closes the door on the Kankers, locks and bolts it for good measure...and then:
(Screaming as he runs into the next room) OH, DEAR LORD!
THAT SHIP-IN-A-BOTTLE BELONGS TO THE KANKERS!! Eddy
: KANKERS?! EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF!! Ed
: WHO?! WHAT?! WHERE?! WHY?!
- "I think that was the Kankers' ship-in-a-bottle Eddy."
- Also, after all that, the Kankers remove the bottle with a simple twist, then leave without molesting the Ed's for once. Double D is genuinely confused that things worked out so well. Then Eddy discovers that his finger has gotten stuck in the sink faucet.
- In "Cleanliness is Next to Edness", Ed wakes up Eddy for school. When Eddy finds out it was a Saturday and Ed woke him up for no reason, Ed claims it wasn't his fault because his belly told him it was Bottomless Gravy Day. Ed whacks his belly with a flyswatter, yelling "Bad belly!" Eddy proceeds to grab the swatter and whack Ed on his head, driving him into the ground. "YOUR HEAD'S BOTTOMLESS!"
- Later, Ed is constantly trying to apologize to Eddy. Eddy doesn't really care at that point and just wants to sleep in. Eventually, Eddy tapes what's obviously supposed to be a dirty magazine to the window and tells Ed to "stay". What really makes this one hilarious, however, is the fact that Ed gets the biggest, widest grin on his face while looking at said magazine. Of course, then Edd shows up asking to use Eddy's shower, due to his own being remodeled. Eddy ends up throwing him out of his room.
- The scene where the Eds frighten the Urban Rangers with monstrous noises in "An Ed in the Bush". Double D, well, tries to sound scary...
Double D: Boo! Boo boo boo boo! Bleh, bleh! Boo boo!
- In "Thick as an Ed" as Ed & Edd argue and volley insults over Ed's stinky lucky cheese chunk. Ed keeps using the same insult to Edd. Finally, Eddy breaks it up.
Edd: The point here is my hat doesn't smell.
Ed: Oh yes, it does
Edd: No, it does NOT. You're just saying that because I said your jacket stank."
Ed: Stinky hat!
Edd: You've got a repulsive empty detachment of cheese in your pocket, Ed!
Ed: STINKY HAT!
Edd: ODIFEROUS CURDY COAT!
Ed: STINKY HAT!
Edd: RANCID ROQUEFORT WRAP!
Ed: STINKY HAT!
Edd: PUNGENT PARMESAN POCKET!"
Ed: Oh, YEAH?! STINKY HAT!
Edd: "COAT OF CANTANKEROUS CAMEMBERT!"
Ed: STINKY HAT!
- The mere fact that EDDY is being the Only Sane Man this time around.
- In "Sorry , Wrong Ed," when Rolf and the Eds are fighting over who gets to keep the cursed phone by throwing the phone, Ed's line is the funniest:
Ed: Hot potato!
- In "Don't Rain on My Ed", on the way to the candy store Eddy collides into Kevin and accidentally swallows him whole. Kevin's response:
Kevin: (in Eddy's stomach, his shape visible) No, really, I'm pounding you, dork.
- From "Flea Bitten Ed":
Jonny: I told you bunnies would take over the world someday, and they have! Lucky we were prepared for this day, huh, Plank?
- Everything Ed and Eddy do to torment the grounded Kevin in "A Case of Ed". Words alone can't do them justice, but the highlights are:
- Eddy using a pool cue chalk on his finger before ringing the doorbell.
- Ed drawing faces on his toes and "performing" in front of Kevin's window.
- Eddy mooning Kevin. Kevin's reaction is funny enough but Ed tops it with an absolute GEMSTONE of a line:
- And the big finale? Building an entire brick wall around Kevin's house!
Kevin: (in total darkness) Okay, now I'm mad...
- Scrambled Ed:
- Any of Edd's sleep-deprived rants. "Use hot wax for more manageable follicles..."
- "A Fistful Of Ed" has quite a bit, despite being something of a Tearjerker episode due to how miserable Ed and Double D end up for most of it. One of the funniest moments is Ed temporarily replacing Double D with a painted egg he calls Double G.
Ed as Double G: I, Double G, am gentle, unlike that nasty Double D! Shall we talk about fossils and dishsoap?
Ed: *at the verge of tears* Double D used to talk about dish shoap! ALL THE TIME!!
- "A Twist of The Ed", which revolves around the Eds using reverse psychology on the Kankers to scare them off for good, has some truly great moments, such as Ed's initial "flirting" with the Kankers, and them getting increasingly creeped out.
Ed: *goes down on one knee in front of May* May I have your hand in carriage? *kisses her hand, then sucks the whole thing into his mouth*
Ed: MAMBO!! *grabs Lee and Marie in a passionate tango embrace, taping their hands to his backside, and leans down to grab a mouthful of dandilions like they were a rose*
- After the Kankers flee back to their trailer, Double D joins in.
Double D: Welcome home my dainty, dowdy darlings! I have freshly laundered socks for each of my contemptuous cupcakes!
Ed: And I made my chicks pankcakes? Ketchup? *sprays ketchup on the pancakes which forms an image of an eye, a heart and a U* See? Eye Love U! A poet I am!
- The Kankers increasingly desperate attempts at escaping. They try to call the cops, only to find Ed with the reciever on his head.
Ed: Dial me for love! *smooches*
- The Kankers smashes through a wall, leaving an imprint of their outline, only for the camera to pan out and show Eds outline on the wall as well with huge puckered lips
Ed: *flirty* Its dark, hehehe.
