Mind bending, isn't it?note 

One of the more famous episodes, purely on how strange and off-the-wall the story becomes, even in the context of the show.

Ed appears in Eddy's bedroom late at night asking random questions about everything he sees, bothering Eddy all night long. In the morning they go to Double-D's house to find him disassembling an antique radio in order to understand how it works. Eddy then gets an idea: if they knew how everything worked, they'd be famous and get rich.

After taking apart a washing machine and Rolf's chicken coop (with Double-D taking notes all the while), things start to get weirder and weirder and the trio begin taking apart reality.

This episode contains examples of:

  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: After a random scene transition, the Eds are stuck in a black void with only their eyes and mouths visible. The void is then revealed to be inside Kevin's right eyeball.
  • Deconstruction: On the way cartoons (or at least the show's on cartoon reality) work.
  • Floating Platforms: At the strangest point in the episode, the world has been reduced to loads of floating houses, platforms, and other random things.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: After Ed saws the sky to reveal the Kanker sisters bathing and kicks the circle away, Eddy snickers "Did you see anything?".
  • I'm Melting: Jimmy after Eddy removes his outline.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Kicks off the entire episode: Ed appears in Eddy's bedroom late one night to ask "How can my feet smell if they don't have a nose."
  • Interspecies Romance: Apparently, Wilfred and a chicken.
  • Malaproper: After bumping into the sun, Eddy shrugs and says "Well, if you' can't beat 'em, eat 'em!" before taking a bite out of it, turing it into a cressent moon.
  • Mind Screw
  • Multiple Head Case: Rolf in the weird universe.
  • No Fourth Wall: While the show is already pretty self-referential, this episode sees it literally getting torn down!
  • Not Actually the Ultimate Question: Inverted:
    Edd: I feel we're getting closer to answering that all-important question!
    Eddy: "Is Eddy rich yet?"
    Ed: "Can Ed go to the bathroom?"
  • Selective Gravity: Frequently messed around with.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight
    Eddy: A three-headed Rolf. Yawn.
  • Wheel o' Feet: Eddy gets rid of Sarah at one point by producing one of these before jumping out of it, then sticking her in it and forcing her to run away.
