Recap / Ed Edd N Eddy S 6 E 1 May I Have This Ed

Go To

Airdate: June 29th, 2008

The Peach Creek Jr. High-School Dance is coming up - while Eddy is excited about it, Edd is not looking forward to it.

"May I have this Ed?" includes examples of:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Jonny takes the time to ask Sarah out to the dance (a harmless and pretty ballsy thing to do all things considered). She polite fully declines, and by "politely", it means that she shouts in his face that she would rather date a frog and the beats him up, Jonny rolling away in a trashcan.

  • Attractiveness Isolation: Nazz spends the beginning of the dance by herself, Edd, Eddy, and Kevin standing awkwardly with her attention. Kevin goes in to greet her, but ends up getting cold feet and gets her punch despite Nazz asking if he wanted to dance with her.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Eddy puts up a "Win a Date with Eddy! Sign up here!" sheet when he learns about the school dance. Ed is the only person who signs it.
  • Chick Magnet: In an effort to get to the exit, Edd accidentally bumps into Sarah. Expecting him to ask her to dance, Sarah proceeds to block the path in front of him. Later, Edd accidentally gets caught in a scuffle with Eddy and Kevin and Nazz thinks that he was busting a move, causing her to drag him further on the dance floor. When Marie sees this, she goes into a blind rage and proceeds to dance with Eddy to try and make Edd jealous. All of this and he didn't even want to be there.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: All three of the Kanker-sisters —
    • Marie when she sees Edd dancing with Nazz
    • Lee when Marie starts dancing with Eddy (and especially when Marie tries kissing Eddy to make Edd jealous).
    • May when Lee uses Ed as a mallet to bash Marie with for dancing with (and trying to kiss) Eddy.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: "NO SCHOOL!"
  • Continuity Nod: Two examples.
    • One of the pieces of paper that flies out of Eddy's closet when he's searching for the book is the 'You Electrify Me' card Double D gave him in Ed Edd n Eddy's Hanky Panky Hullabaloo
    • Ed's lucky cheese Sheldon from 'Thick as an Ed', is referenced again, in the form of its successor Sheldon Jr. when he's talking to a mannequin.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: NO SCHOOL TOMORROW!
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: Ed wears fake side-burns as part of his attire.
  • Minimalist Cast: A particularly noteworthy example, as even though this is supposed to be a school dance, no one else shows up.

  • Not Good with Rejection: One of the reasons why Edd tries avoiding going to the dance is because he has a crippling fear of rejection, becoming a sweating mess just from practicing on a mannequin.
  • Only the Leads Get a Happy Ending: In an atypical example for the show, this episode ends with the entire school collapsing into a ruined heap, everybody but the Eds still being inside. While Eddy was grumpy that he didn’t attract any willing girls, he and Ed are happy that they won’t have to deal with school for a while and Edd is proud of himself that he was able to dance with Nazz.
  • Shout-Out: When Rolf, who is wearing a blowfish costume, ends up uncontrollably rolling around and rolling up everyone and everything he runs into, the concept is very similar to KatamariDamacy.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: This is one of the few episode where the Eds get a happy ending, or at least end the story on a note where they are better off than when they started.

How well does it match the trope?
