"Over Your Ed" is the 4th episode of Season 1 and of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, Ed ruins the Eds' latest scam due to his stench and clumsiness, so Edd and Eddy give Ed a bath and a complete image makeover to make him look cool, and Eddy tutors Ed on becoming a cool person. When this works, Eddy creates the "Ed the Great show" to try and make some money.
The day begins with the Eds readying themselves to start the day. Edd works hard at his bath, trying to make himself spotless, while Eddy takes a vigorous shower, and Ed forgets to even bathe. After this, they head out to start the newest scam: an En-O-Gee Drink stand. While the stand is initially very rickety, Edd and Eddy manage to get it into working condition before Ed arrives. Eddy tries to get Ed to put the sign for the scam in the correct position, but is quickly distracted by Ed's stench. He then moves over to see how Edd is doing. Edd is carefully measuring sugar, but Eddy, knowing what their customers will want, decides to pour a whole sack of sugar into the pitcher. When Edd finally measures out what he think is the correct amount, he drops it in the pitcher and starts mixing it in.
Ed then goes over to Edd and asks to help, but is only able to make things worse, especially when it comes to his stink. Edd sends Ed off and tastes the sugary concoction, which makes him extremely hyper. Ed then goes over to Eddy and asks to be the sales Ed; while Eddy denies him, Edd says that it can't hurt, and Eddy reluctantly gives in. He then feeds Ed a sales pitch, which Ed screws up, and when Kevin and Nazz arrive for drinks, Ed singlehandedly destroys the scam. After the customers leave, Eddy berates Ed, but Ed is oblivious to his anger, and Eddy gives up, wondering what they'll do with him. At this, Edd suggests a makeover, and Eddy gets an idea.
Ed is next seen sitting naked in a wagon. Edd and Eddy proceed to wash the boy before packing him off to Eddy's house for new, cool clothes. A wardrobe selected and a shower given, Eddy teaches Ed some of his coolest moves, and Edd comes up with some hip phrases he can say. They then decide to test him out and put Ed in the lane. When Jimmy comes along, Ed is quickly able to win him over, and soon after that, he wins over the kids. Eddy then comes up with a way to make money off of this: an Ed the Great show.
Soon enough, the show is set up in the shed and the kids have paid to watch. Eddy sends Ed onstage, and Ed recites "Ed-isms" for the cheering crowd. Things suddenly go sour, however. The Kankers break in and start to torment Ed. When Ed scans the sheet of cool catchphrases he got from Edd, May grabs it and calls him a cheater. The evil trio then proceed to wreck the show, turning Ed into a bumbling idiot and sending the Eds flying into a wheelbarrow full of manure. The kids leave, disgusted. To top it all off, Lee steals Eddy's money and leaves the Eds broke once more.
The Eds wind up outside the candy store, depressed. Edd has finally come down from his sugar high and has a large block of ice pressed to his head. Ed, trying to cheer up his friends, comes up with a cool phrase on his own: "I say the cheese is always twice the fence post!" Eddy, not one to be cheered by this, merely darkly wishes for a fence post, presumably to use on Ed.
Eddy: "Perfect!" [showing Ed another move (showing off the muscles)] "That's it." [about to show Ed the rest of it and gets smacked on the head by Ed's fist while recoiling from it] "A-ow! Ow!" Ed: [copying Eddy recoiling from pain] "AAAAHHHH!!"
Eddy: [unhappy] "Ladies and gentlemen…" Ed[excited]: "Ladies and gentlemen!" Eddy: "Come buy our delicious…" Ed: "Come buy our deciduous…" [normal voice] "Uh…" Eddy: "En-O-Gee Drink." Ed: "Hello!" [Kevin and Nazz walk up] "I'm the Sales-Ed!" Kevin: "En-O-Gee Drinks?" Ed: "Here, try some!" [breaks part of the sign] "Oops!"
Ed: [while swatting flies around him] "Hey guys!" Eddy: "What is it, Ed?" Ed: "I say the cheese is always twice the fence post!" Eddy: [giving Ed a dark look] "I wish I had a fence post, Ed."
Ed: [while he is in his own bathroom] "Now, what did I come in here for?"
[after Edd & Eddy gave Ed a bath in the wagon] Ed: "Am I cool, now?" Eddy: "No, you're naked."
Ed: [while naked in the wagon] "Is sitting naked in a wagon cool?" Eddy: "No, skunk pits, it isn't." Edd: [hyperactive and checking the shower plan] "Yes! Yes! Yes! Everything's ready!"
Eddy: [growls] "Ed! What do you have to say for yourself?" [grabs Ed] Ed: "Drink, Mister?" Eddy: "Oh, what are we gonna do with you?" Edd: [while on a sugar high] "How about a complete image makeover?" Eddy: "Yeah! Under my supervision, you will become the definition of cool!" [smells Ed] "Follow me, stinky!" [Ed follows Eddy.]
Ed's "cool" phrases
Here are some of Ed's "cool" phrases from this episode in order of appearance:
"I'm hip, baby."
"Swiggity swag, what's in the bag?"
"Just me, myself, and I, or I don't fly."
"Sounds like a plan, little man."
"Peek-a-baloo, I see all, too."
"Don't smell it. Just gel it."
"5' 9", give or take."
"I'm too hot to use in a pot!"
"Slick me back, because I'm happening!"
"Yabba dabba crackers!"
"I say the cheese is always twice the fence post!"
Ed possibly reveals he's about 5' 9" tall, a normal human's adult height. However, the adults in the series seem to be giants, so this height could be fairly normal for his age (despite him being the second tallest character on the show with the tallest being Eddy's adult brother and not counting the off-screen adults).
Ed has red hair in this episode, but in the episode "The Luck of the Ed", his hair is black since he doesn't shower. This marks the only episode he has a different hair color.
The En-O-Gee Drink stand appears again in "A Glass of Warm Ed", but has another sign placed in front of the original reading "Ed's Mart" instead.
The R on the pink sugar bowl changes from a capital R to a small r in between shots.
After the Eds fail in their attempt to make Ed cool and they are shown sitting on a sidewalk in front of the Candy Store, when Eddy replies to Ed's phrase, Edd's socks are missing.
When the new Ed is revealed walking out of Eddy's closet, notice that Eddy has women's shoes paired with all his other shoes for some reason.
Edd being hyperactive throughout the episode.
Ed ruining things unintentionally with his stench and clumsiness at the start of the episode.
Ed doing cool moves and saying cool phrases after getting a new look.
With Ed's strength and Edd's hyperactivity, they could have just busted out of the wall.
This is the first episode everybody appears and has lines.
Edd is shown to be VERY hyper if he consumes too much sugar. When he comes down from the sugar rush, however, he has a tremendous headache.
Edd is seen taking a bath in this episode. However, he prefers taking a shower in later episodes (one notable example is "Cleanliness Is Next to Edness"). He may have changed to doing showers at some point after this episode.
This episode was the only time Ed took any sort of bath or shower.
Ed has no problem with soap in this episode, but later episodes such as "Once Upon an Ed" and "Run for your Ed" show he is afraid of soap. Ed may have however developed this fear at some point after this episode.
When Lee says "We forgot our money", you can notice May and Marie's mouth move a little bit two or three times on that shot, but no words come out. However, if you listen closely, when their mouths move they make pig noises.
When Ed says "Don't smell it, just gel it!" Jonny's mouth moves several times but no words come out.
When Sarah said "Come on Ed" just after Ed was accepted with the kids, her mouth didn't move.
When Jonny laughs at Ed during the show, his mouth didn't move.
It would make sense if ginger was Ed's real hair color because it's similar to Sarah's.
Goof: Ed's shirt in this episode is white, but when Marie pulled his jacket off and he spun, it was green (the same color of his jacket in all other episodes).
This is the first episode that shows sticky notes (specifically, the ones in Edd's bathroom).
Everything in Eddy's closet is the same color except for the clothes he picks out.
After reading the catchphrase paper that Ed had, May mentions that "Yabba-Dabba" is cheating. This may be because Ed stole this catchphrase from Fred Flintstone.
We see how Edd and Eddy bathe in this episode. Edd wears a shower cap and bathes in a bathtub removing any stains (and their smells) on him (he appears to bathe similarly to how children are cleaned during bath time), while Eddy wears a hair net and bathes in a stand-up shower and sings and listens to the radio (he bathes similarly to most teenagers and adults). Ed, on the other hand, doesn't bathe due to his forgetfulness.
Ed puts up the sign without nailing it down.
Marie claims in this episode that she likes cheaters.
Edd isn't hyperactive when he says "Help!".
Some of the sticky notes say "Keep out!", "Brush your teeth!", "Walk don't run!" and the last one says "Don't touch the wall!".
The shed is bigger in the inside than the outside.
This is the first episode where the kids encounter the Kankers.
This is one of the few episodes in which Ed's bathtub isn't filled with gravy. Another episode where this happened was "Who's Minding the Ed?".
Kevin calls Ed by his name in this episode. Most of the time Kevin calls him (and the other Eds) "Dorks".
The shed used for the "Ed the Great" show was also used by Sarah as a hiding spot in "Ed-n-Seek."
