"Boys Will Be Eds" is the 13th episode of Season 3 and the 65th episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, the boys of the Cul-de-Sac (except Rolf and Jimmy) compete for the attention and affections of Nazz after they become infatuated with her.
Eddy seems to have struck gold for the first time when his sandwich business was actually a success until greedy goat Victor chases Jimmy with a sandwich in his hand and Rolf is required to stop him from ingesting both Jimmy and his hard work snack. Everyone thought it was funny when Jimmy slips on a sandwich ingredient (Edd did not think that was funny until he realized what Jimmy slipped on). The Eds, Kevin, and Jonny soon laugh at him until Nazz angrily steps in and tells them to stop acting like immature idiots. The guys stop and stare at her with goo-goo eyes as they have now become infatuated with her.
Unfortunately, for Nazz, though, this 'boys can be so stupid' type chastening doesn't have the effect she'd hoped for as now they are all far too busy goggling at her like love-starved leeches to take much notice of anything she's saying. There's obviously something about an angry woman because they all agree she looks awesome today.
It begins a desperate scramble for domination and it's every guy, except Jimmy and Rolf, for himself. Later the kids are shown playing a baseball game, but Kevin and Jonny are too infatuated with Nazz to focus. The Eds want to join the game and Nazz invites them to the game too. Kevin pitches the baseball to Nazz and she runs around the bases as she thought she hit the ball and the guys let her run to home run without stopping her. They then fight over who now gets to pitch the ball to Nazz next after Kevin pitched the ball to her. Nazz doesn't know what to make of it and neither do Sarah and Jimmy, so all three of them leave. Kevin notices this and gets angry at the other guys because he believes Nazz thinks he is a dork.
After all this, Kevin goes to Rolf for help because Nazz thinks he's a "dork." He accepts the argeement. Rolf then shows Victor in roller skates to Nazz with her name shaved onto the side of Victor's body. Nazz thinks that Victor changed his name to "Nazz." Kevin appears and reveals it is a gift for her. She then asks why he is wearing her skates. Kevin nervously says that is part of his gift. The Eds notice this and find ways to impress her. The Eds, Kevin, and Jonny came up with anything possible to win her affections. They continuously try to give her something to impress her until eventually she becomes nervous as she thinks the boys have gone crazy and she then becomes so scared out of her wits that she runs away in a panic. Kevin says that he didn't want to be left behind with the rest, who then realize that their attempts at impressing Nazz have failed.
Later that evening, the Eds then go to a house and do a band gig in order to win her heart thinking it would work, but, instead, Jimmy arrives at the window, much to the Eds' surprise and says, their music has soothed the savage beast and the episode ends at evening with Jimmy watching the Eds.
Jimmy: [holding a sandwich while fleeing from Victor] "Aah! Leave me alone! Somebody turn the radio on - soothe this savage beast!" Rolf: "Drop the sandwich, you fool!" Edd: "And here I thought selling sandwiches would be a safe and innocent venture."
Rolf: [trying to wrest Victor from Jimmy's sandwich] "Do not spoil your supper with the white bread!"
Edd: "It's all fun and games until somebody spills the mayonnaise."
Rolf: [to his goat Victor] "Victor! Let go of the confused and delicate one (Jimmy)!" [Sarah comes up behind Rolf and smacks him on the head with her racquet] Sarah: "You leave Jimmy alone!"
Kevin: "Hahaha! Fluffy ran like a chicken!" Ed: "I love chickens, guys."
Ed: [staring at Nazz] "Double D? My tummy feels all wiggly and crawly inside." Edd: [staring at Nazz] "That's nice, Ed." Eddy: [staring at Nazz] "I feel like the Nazzes on the back of my Nazz is standing on Nazz." Edd: [staring at Nazz] That's nice, Ed.
Sarah: "Oh for goodness sake! Catch it, Double D!" [Sarah throws the baseball to Edd, but instead gets hit on the head and falls to the ground] Nazz: "Later dude." [as she runs to first base] Edd: "She called me dude."
[after Eddy trips Sarah and drops the baseball it rolls towards Ed] Ed: "Oh look." [sees Nazz running towards him] Nazz: "Hi ya big guy, are you gonna touch me with that ball?" Ed: [screams as he runs away from third base towards home and bumps into Jimmy, releasing the ball from his hand]
Edd: [staring at Nazz] "Nazz is as graceful as a gazelle leaping through a field of buttercups." Eddy: [staring at Nazz] "Yeah… a ger-whatchamacallit…"
Jonny: [in a desperate attempt to get Nazz's attention] "Plank and I make our own doughnuts!"
Ed: [lifting up Eddy who has a baseball bat jammed in his mouth] "Oh look, a bouquet of flowers for Nazz." Edd: "A tad pungent don't you think, Ed?" Eddy: [to Ed] "I'll give you a bo-" [Gets cut off by Nazz]
Ed: [with his lips numb] "I can't feel my lips, Double D."
[the boys think about Nazz] Kevin's thoughts: "She's so radical..." Eddy's thoughts: "She can't take her eyes off me." Edd's thoughts: "Her hair is so clean and not fly away at all." Ed's thoughts: "Hello? Echo! MY NAME IS ED!"
Rolf: [to Kevin] "Yes, I see. So, Kevin would like Rolf to assist him with the Nazz, yes? No! Go back. Go away. Come again another day." Kevin: [beginning to walk away] "Harsh." Rolf: [changing mood] "Ho ho! Rolf pokes fun at you, Kevin! I have never seen such a killjoy! Come. Rolf makes good!" [grabs Kevin and hauls him further into Rolf's property]
Nazz: [staring bemused at the semi-shaved goat] "Victor changed his name to Nazz just like me!" Rolf: [incredulous] "Are you weak in the upper story?"
Ed: "I will throw the football to Nazz." Eddy: "It's a baseball, stupid." Ed: "Sure am, Eddy."
Rolf: "Rolf will sit to the side and observe with hysterics."
Nazz: "Hey there, Ed." Ed: [lifting his shirt to expose the painting of Nazz he has made on his stomach] "It's you and I drew it." Nazz: [lost for words] "Uh... I don't know what to say." Ed: [proud] Should I hang it in your room?"
Eddy: "Nazz would love a new bike." Ed: "Or a new toilet?" Kevin: "Not the bike, dork."
Eddy: [to Ed] "You won't impress Nazz with chickens." Ed: "I won't?" Edd: "A rare moment indeed, but Eddy's right."
[the Eds are outside Jimmy's bedroom window which they think is Nazz's room] Ed: [shouting] "Bring it on home!" Eddy: [grabs Ed's face and whispers loudly] "Shut up, you idiot."
In one of the scenes where the boys are trying to give Nazz presents to impress her, the inside of Jonny's mouth is the same as the pink sky in the background.
This is the only episode where Nazz has a major role.
Nazz's name is mentioned about 36 times.
In "Hot Buttered Ed", Jimmy's bedroom is on the first floor, but in this episode, it is on the second floor.
Ed can't differentiate between a football and a baseball.
The episode can show Jimmy's effeminate features: Jimmy is hanging out with the girls and at the end he is seen with women's clothing such as a nightgown and hair curlers.
Nazz reveals that she doesn't wears hats because they mess up her hair.
Nazz's unattainability is put to the test in this episode.
Rolf and Jimmy were the only boys that did not try to win Nazz over in this episode.
This episode shows that Nazz has some traits of the "dumb blond"; she thinks Victor changed his name to Nazz when Rolf rolls him in and still thinks that much when Kevin explains that Victor (which has Nazz's name shaved into his side) is a gift for her, and probably Rolf being a little smart. (Rolf: "Are you weak in the upper story?")
In this episode, we learn that Jonny hates to write.
The boys being distracted while thinking about Nazz during the ball game.
Sarah and/or Jimmy getting aggravated whenever the boys lose their focus on the game and think about Nazz.
The boys all giving things to Nazz until she freaks out and runs away.
