Ok so for anyone who’s seen this picture but not known the context, let me explain: This is from one of the FMA light novels. The kid on the left there is Pit, the protagonist of Kid Icarus Ed’s friend/partner in crime from when they were kids.
One time Ed and Pit thought it would be funny to throw roly-polies at all the girls in their class. Of course all the girls screamed… Except for Winry, who quietly gathered up every last roly-poly and stuffed them all down Ed and Pit’s shirts. Then I think they cried? And Al was just like “Well they had it coming”
Moral of the story is don’t fucking mess with Winry
Though not really touched on in the manga or Brotherhood, it is mentioned on several occasions in the light novels and 2003 anime that Ed hates taking medicine, and will often stubbornly go to great lengths to get out of it.

I was perfectly content, but when you decided to throw away your honor as a homunculus you forced me to step in. You speak of your precious Pride, that quality for which you were named. But then you suddenly find yourself in grave danger and you seek to escape into the body of a human, a lower life form you so despise. It’s pathetic. YOU’RE A DISGRACE!
Ah… what a beautiful sound. It doesn’t get any better than that. I can feel it deep in my bones, like a part of me I never noticed before. That sound is an extension of my being. And this land - this land that’s governed by death - I will paint it red with this shard of destruction.
The one thing worse than death is to avert your eyes from it. Look straight at the people you kill. Don’t take your eyes off them for a second. And don’t ever forget them, because I promise that they won’t forget you.
What can be more beautiful than doing a job that puts your soul at risk?! That’s what it means to be alive!
He died in the middle of our conversation. How rude.
