“Your shirt, Eddy.” Edd says in this sky Eddy manor.
Eddy turns around. His shirt has been drenched in his own tears. Oh, how I want to give him a hug. I’m sure we can all relate to Eddy here because we have had friends leave us.
He is trying to act like himself by trying to look angry. Eddy has never wanted anybody to see him in a state like this. He is embarrassed by his emotions.
Edd points to Eddy’s shirt. “Are those salt deposits from your lamentation?”
And Edd playfully thwacks Eddy on the nose.
His nose thwacks are gentle if you notice. Whenever Eddy thwacks someone’s nose it is done roughly, meaning that’s how he learned it from Bro.
I also love the sound effect that goes along with it.
Eddy is taken aback by this. He hasn’t seen Edd act this way since season 1. His reaction is priceless because this kind of thing never happens to him. Jimmy did it to him once, but he didn’t like it. Here, he is bewildered because it was done by someone he’d never expect.
Eddy really needed to see this from Edd because it means that hasn’t lost his best friend. He is still there, only trapped behind the mask of an adult. Once Edd saw that it was useless trying to get his parents attention he tried to go back to being a kid, but it was too late. Everyone would be suspicious of his changed personality. And since he rarely ever acted like a kid, he doesn’t know how.
There is a kid trapped inside Edd. He was forced to grow up and act like an adult. Edd thought that he’d be able to get his parents to notice and appreciate him.
In season 1, he was having so much fun being a kid and it is sad that he had to throw it all away. He was enjoying the years that he wasted. Eddy helped him see the world in a better light. That’s something his parents wouldn’t show him.
They may have done it for his own good, but look how slow Edd was to adapt at the social world in season 1. His social skills still aren’t the best, but at least he is not that awkward kid with a strange voice.
Edd owes it to Eddy for the person he is today. If Eddy didn’t bring him into the social world, Edd would have wasted away his childhood doing chores.
On an interesting note, did you notice how we never see any sticky notes in Edd’s house in the movie? Edd is writing a note to them in the beginning. It’s implied that they have been building up more because he has little to no physical communication with his parents. This has been getting to him a lot more because he has entered his teen years. This is a difficult time for all.
Edd has never written a sticky note to his parents, so I wonder how they will react to reading the one he left behind. Maybe they will finally get a taste of their own medicine once they know how it feels.
Edd is trying to make it look like a prank that he was leaving them. That is good thinking on Edd’s part because this is something that Eddy would do. He had to think like Eddy to get his friend to feel better.
I guess they really did rub off on one another.
