rock a bye ed

Best Edd Moment #10

I like the relationship Edd has with Ed. He treats him like a little brother. They grow close and create their own friendship whenever they’re not around Eddy.

On occasions Edd tends to avoid physical contact with Ed due to his poor hygiene.

Edd sits on Ed’s bed, something he would never do, wraps an arm around Him and even lets Ed cry on his shoulder.

I have always felt that Edd has bad dreams, but there is nobody around to comfort him.

He wants to be a good person and help others in anyway he can. There are times when he goes too far, but that’s how loyal Edd is.

Ah geez, I forgot about this! I promised to do an analysis, sorry bruh :C

I’m not very experienced in this, also I’ll skip using pictures if that’s alright.

Ok here I go:

Ed’s dream sequence begins with Sarah trying to watch TV while Ed is nearby, playing with a paddleball. The sound the toy makes disturbs Sarah and she quickly flares, takes the toy out of Ed’s hand and threatens to destroy it with scissors. Ed snatches it back and when Sarah demands he gives it to her, he resists. Sarah’s reaction caught my attention while watching, I don’t think we see her this shocked so often, she isn’t used to disobedience. It’s also astounding how well Ed knows Sarah, he loves her regardless of what she does to him, the reaction feels so real. Ed is scared of his sister, and her personality is pretty much interlaced with his mother’s; so maybe this is the kind of reaction his mom gives when he disobeys her, at least before snapping at him like Sarah does.

Here I go! Just a heads up, I like to look up what objects in my own dreams mean on the internet, so I’m gonna be doing the same for Ed. Expect some superstitious nonsense.


The dream begins with Ed playing paddleball; paddleballs could represent restraint. Ed is being restrained, yet he is really getting a kick out of that paddleball! He’s enjoying himself. 

Here’s Sarah doing her own thing and trying to enjoy a simple TV afternoon. Like any sibling, she is annoyed by his background noise. She takes a pair of scissors and threatens to cut the string. Scissors could mean a lack of control in your life or cutting ties with objects or people. Ed is shown to be really caring towards her. He’s aware how uncaring she is towards him, but he has unconditional love for his little sister. He doesn’t like the idea that she doesn’t want him to be a part of her life.

Next comes an event that he’s all too familiar with: “I’m telling Mom!” Any kid threatened by another with that line would protest. Ed is unaware of it being a dream, so he has no control over this. It’s seen on Sarah’s face that she enjoys it. Some siblings just like tattling on the other. Some dreams can also exaggerate your feelings about something, and how Ed responds to her telling Mom shows how he really feels about the situation. Ed starts off with the line that sometimes gets used in these situations. “She’s lying!” “It wasn’t me” things kid say to try and get out of that situation, or in his words as he pleas, “Mom, Sarah’s fibbing! Honest and for truly”, he flinches at the snap of her gloves coming off and begins to drop to his knees, “I was in my happy place, lost in the void of my mind!” 

There is detail in the background, particularly in the dishes Mom is tending. I’m not sure how to summarize the explanation, so I’ll quote the one I found.
- If the dishes are dirty and unwashed, then it signify dissatisfaction and an unpromising outlook. You may have overlooked some problems in your life or you have not confronted your emotions.
- To dream that you are washing dishes suggest that you are moving on and planning for the next thing that comes your way. Alternatively, it represents your daily routine. Perhaps you are in a rut.  
- To see shelves of polished dishes suggest that you are doing your best and making the best out of a situation. You are trying to make a good impression.


Finally Mom turns around, to Ed’s surprise it reveals Johnny’s face. I wasn’t sure how to search of people having someone else’s face in a dream, but the closest and fastest result I found was “being two-faced”. Mom is strongly implied to spoil Sarah and neglect Ed. Naturally, Ed runs away from such odd imagery. Suddenly, he’s being lifted on a spoon. Ever familiar with the term “born with a silver spoon in their mouth”? It means being given special treatment. 

Also, about him being lifted very high up, Ed is the most expressive of his fear of heights. It’s said in dreams, a fear of heights is reaching for goals that are beyond reach. Is there a goal that Ed has relating to the situation? Is the show just bringing a callback to his fear of heights or is he just caught up in the crazy environment? The background shifted from wallpaper to flames.

“Don’t you look at me like that.” “I see we’ll have to wipe that silly grin off your face, won’t we?” I wonder, what does she do to wipe that silly grin off his face? Ed cries for mercy and his mouth disappears; he is deprived from speaking out and is literally restrained in the next scene. He’s now in a jailbird’s jumpsuit and Mom is the judge. “You are accused of shirking the responsibility of an older brother. What do you have to say for yourself, young man?“ He can’t say anything. “Has the jury reached a verdict?” “Guilty” He is being treated unfairly. Mom then sentences him to “the Kanker pit”. Kankers, one of Ed’s biggest fears in the show. Sarah responds, “Serves you right.”
Ed cries out, “Bad for Ed, Mommy! Bad for Ed!” 
“This hurts me than it does you, son.” 
He had a night terror.

I’d also like to remind you of the responses he makes to seeing johnny. He says that Johnny is mad at him, but on the side of his mind he knows it’s his mom. He panics and flees as a result.
It wasn’t my fault! 
I’m a good brother, it was not my fault! 
He wants to punish bad Ed!
*cut to confrontation in Ed’s room*
It wasn’t me, Sarah’s lying! (he is either sweating profusely of crying under that couch.) 
He is curling up at Johnny’s presence. He whimpers. 
Johnny unknowingly recites the same line Mom says in the dream.
Ed responds to this by quickly and aggressively embracing Johnny and remorsefully cries, “I love you Mom!”

Ed’s dream in the episode tells me many things. One, Sarah is a tattletale. That was never a mystery. Also, their mother always sides with Sarah for some reason. Maybe cause she always wanted a girl or she is the younger sibling or both. Ed is terrified of his mother, cause he doesn’t have the capacity to understand he is not doing anything wrong. If Sarah says he is being bad, he’ll believe her, feel bad and scared that his mom will yell at him or punish him. Poor Ed, he doesn’t know any better. I don’t feel his family has much consideration for his mental issues if they are being so harsh to him over little things. I don’t know what the whole thing about Jonny in his dream though. But if I remember correctly, wasn’t the whole episode Jonny’s dream? I think it was kinda an inception kind of episode….

The episode begins with Ed being Ed and playing with a paddleball.

“Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.”

Sarah is trying to watch TV, but is bothered by the pestering noise.

Something immediately feels off. When is Ed ever upstairs in his house? It’s edident that he has been banished to the basement. One of Ed’s desires is to be a part of the family.

Isn’t that the one where he dreams of his mom with Johnny’s face and it freaks him out? I feel like that’s a big reason why a lot of us think he’s being abused by his mom. Like in the dream Johnny is associated with his mother and it scares him enough that he relates the fear of his mother with Johnny. That just goes to show that his mom puts the fear of God in that poor kid, and even as a kid I recognized that that wasn’t a normal thing, that is wasnt a normal amount of fear a child should have for their parent. Like yeah you’re afraid of getting in trouble with your mom or dad or whatever but not so much so that you should be having nightmares about it

That dream really effed me up.
All it tells me is that he’s treated horribly by his own family and that the punishments are severe enough to give him nightmares. He, as a kid, can watch horror movies but he has nightmares about his mom! Thats messed up!
I feel bad for him, im the same way and from experience this kid needs to leave asap.

Tldr: His home life sucks crack and he’s gotta leave.

I’ll answer the question (I’m not really an analysis person). I think the dream is mostly clear what his home life is like: Ed can be doing any mundane activity that, to most people, wouldn’t really bother them but Sarah either just can’t stand Ed or the way he does things so she stops him from doing whatever he’s doing (in the dream’s case paddle ball) and when he asks for it back she decides to be a little snitchy brat and tell her mom. I have no idea why her mom is always on her side (nor do I know why she has Jonny’s head and voice in this dream…) but she is and Ed gets punished in some way (I don’t think it’s as extreme as the Kanker pit in the dream, it might be a light grounding or something like that)

his dream shows that ed’s mom seems to always favor sarah and believes her more. probably because ed is the older sibling and parents always give the older sibling a harder time because they should “know better” and stuff. It also shows that ed seems to be scared of his mom. maybe its because he always gets punished instead of sarah?  The reason for johnny being in his dream? i dont really have an answer, sometimes we dream of random people in our lives because they happen to be in the back of our minds for some reason or another
