"May I have this Ed?" is the 1st episode of Season 6 as well as the 125th and penultimate episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, the Eds attend their first school dance.


In Peach Creek Jr. High, Ed is being chased by Eddy for his donut. During their lengthy chase, Ed successfully makes a mess out of the janitor's closet, tunnels through the school's sewers courtesy of Eddy, and after popping out under an exhausted Edd's feet, destroys all of the lockers in the hallway. Eddy makes a bid for the donut but is flung back into a wall for his troubles. Just as Edd begins to reprimand his friends for destroying school property, a look at a fallen poster cuts him short, sending him into a quivering fright. Eddy and Ed are curious, and it's not long before the cat is out of the bag: there's a school dance, and it's happening TONIGHT. Eddy's ecstatic for another chance to shmooze and gain some social points, Edd is trying to avoid it at all costs, using Sarah rejecting Jonny 2x4 as an example, and Ed is... well, being Ed.

Meeting at Eddy's House after school, Eddy is scrounging around his closet for something, Edd is catching his clothing as neatly as possible, and Ed gets K.O.ed by a flying drawer. Eddy finally digs out what he is looking for: Dames, Dates, & You, a (dated, since it was used when Eddy's Brother was in school) guide to, as Eddy puts it, "charmin' the tomatoes" (girls). Edd, still having cold feet over the idea, attempts to flee, but is chained to a chest in Eddy's Attic, while Eddy and Ed prep a mannequin to use to practice the book's tips; and Edd is the test subject. With the song "Like Me" playing in the background, Edd is forced to "charm" the mannequin, but falters due to being unable to "bear the rejection." Ed takes his turn, but his serenade ends up turning into a reenactment of a B-movie he saw, "Attack of the Fifty-Foot TV Tray". Eddy and Edd make their way out to prepare for the dance, with Ed following not long after destroying most of the attic.

At the dance, all the boys (Kevin, Jonny, Rolf in a pufferfish suit, and Wilfred) and all the girls (Nazz and the Kanker Sisters) are on opposite sides of the room, with only May out on the dance floor, eventually joined by Jimmy and Sarah, who arrive with the Eds (now in formal suits and false facial hair). The Eds intend to dance, but Eddy says that they have to avoid staying with the same girl the entire night. Unfortunately for them (except Ed, 'cause he's that oblivious), Dames, Dates & You doesn't cover how to deal with a crush, because when Nazz waves at them, hoping for a dance, their resolve crumbles. Eddy and Ed bail out on Edd, leaving him desperately looking for an exit. He finds one opposite to him, but collides into Sarah, who expectantly waits for an invitation to dance; he flees to the snack table.

Meanwhile, Kevin works up the courage to go ask Nazz to dance, but falters and is teased by Rolf. Edd offers him some punch but finds that Eddy has taken refuge inside the bowl, causing Kevin to nearly lose his lunch. Eddy and Edd tell each other off for what just happened and Edd being abandoned when Eddy falls out of the punch and rolls into Edd. Back with Nazz, Kevin now tries to show off with shaky one-handed push-ups but is run over by the tangled Eddy and Edd. Nazz takes the mortified Edd for a dance, while Kevin punches Eddy's face inwards (after Eddy made fun of him for Nazz rejecting him) before leaving the room in frustration. An enraged Marie forces Eddy to dance with her in hopes of making Edd jealous, but only succeeds in ticking off her sister, Lee.

Meanwhile, Ed is showing off some fancy footwork with Wilfred, only to be reprimanded by Rolf for "breaking the customary laws of Rolf's traditions" as Ed was supposed to ask for permission before he dances with the pig. Rolf is interrupted by Lee borrowing Ed to smite Marie for attempting to kiss Eddy. May, who was stuck to Rolf's pufferfish suit for most of the episode, comes to Ed's aid, only for Rolf to get jammed onto the dance floor. He comes loose and starts entrapping everyone in the room, tearing up everything in the process. The Eds are the only ones able to escape the collapsing school. As they watch the school collapse, they reflect the good things that came out of it: Eddy and Ed won't have to deal with school for a while, Edd got to dance with Nazz, and Ed managed to get Wilfred's phone number.


  • Goofs:
    • When Nazz starts dancing with Edd, Nazz's hair ribbon changes color from yellow to red.
    • When Rolf's costume starts tearing up the gym, Kevin and Sarah can be seen observing the destruction from a distance. Moments later, when the costume destroys the snack table, Kevin and Sarah can be seen stuck to Rolf.
    • After the school collapses, Ed yells out "No school tomorrow!" As this dance happened on a Friday night (according to a flyer), there should be no school the next day regardless.
  • The destruction caused by Rolf's costume ball may be a reference to the popular video game franchise, Katamari.
  • This episode first aired January 25, 2008 on Cartoon Network Australia. It later aired in the UK on February 14, 2008, and in the US on June 29, 2008.
  • This was the first of two episodes (the other being "Look Before You Ed") to be written by Stacy Warnick. Both times she is credited as Stacy J. Warnick.
  • A flyer on the bulletin board reads "Dance Lessons with Mr. Antonucci". This is a reference to series creator, Danny Antonucci.
    • Another flyer reads "Drama Club. Join Us. Ask Mr. Toomey." This is a reference to prop designer, Cory Toomey.
  • Ed's lucky cheese chunk reappears, now known as Sheldon Jr.. The original charm was seen in "Thick as an Ed".

  • Near the beginning, when Edd looks at the destroyed hallway, a boomerang can be seen on top of the lockers.
  • During the dance, Eddy hides in the punch bowl. Upon realizing this, Kevin says "Whoa! I almost drank Dork-ade!" Kevin could be referencing the name of various flavored drink brands such as Gatorade, Powerade, Kool-Aid, or any other drink named with the suffix "-ade”.
  • The song that plays at the start of the dance is an instrumental version of the 1956 song "Twenty Flight Rock".
