"Quick Shot Ed" is the 10th Season 1 episode and the 10th episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, the Eds find a camera in Eddy's attic and start taking pictures with it. After a while, Eddy decides that they need to do something about the pictures. After seeing a calendar, Eddy decides to use the pictures they take to create a calendar. The Eds then begin secretly taking photos of the kids in order to create a funny, yet somewhat embarrassing calendar.
Eddy and his friends enter his attic and check out the cool stuff he has inside, including a bunch of magazines, several records, and a fur coat, all of which are explained by Eddy's folks being pack rats. Eddy's big find is a camera, however, which he points at his friends. When he takes a picture, his friends are blinded, but Ed wants him to do it again, and Eddy is fully willing to comply. Eddy then suggests that they head outside to take more pictures, and soon the Eds are in the lane doing a photoshoot. The shoot is going well until Kevin rides by and insults them. Eddy smugly takes a picture, and Kevin is blinded. his bike crashes into a bunch of garbage cans, and Kevin falls off. When he gets up, he threatens Eddy with physical violence, but Eddy snaps another shot, and the flash blinds Kevin. While stumbling around, Kevin slips on a bottle and lands in a trashcan, which rolls down the lane and away from the Eds. Eddy is still unsatisfied, though, as he is yet to come up with a scheme to turn these pictures in money. He looks at the pile of trash and notices a thrown-away calendar, which gives him an idea.
The Eds set out on a photo safari. Their first stop is the playground, where Jonny is reading to Plank. Edd mentions that many animals teach and nurture their young, and Eddy takes a picture. Jonny is blinded by the flash, and he accidentally throws Plank into the air. The Eds, seeing Plank twirling towards them, believe that Plank is attacking and run away.
The next stop on the safari is Ed's house, where Sarah and Jimmy are playing with dolls. Edd mentions that some animals mistake the babies of other species for their own and adopt them. Eddy takes a picture of the two. Sarah is dizzied by the flash, but Jimmy is traumatized, and cries in a corner. Sarah yells at the Eds, and when Eddy prepares to take a picture of her, she picks up a dollhouse and flings it at them. Eddy ducks, and it slams into Edd's head, effectively becoming a helmet for him. Ed asks Sarah not to throw things in the house, but Sarah ignores him, choosing instead to throw doll parts at them angrily. All three evacuate from the scene.
Once outside, Ed and Eddy hide behind a fence. When he notices that Edd is nowhere to be found, Eddy asks where Edd is, only to spot him crashed against a mailbox with parts of dollhouse still stuck to his face. Eddy goes over and opens the door that's covering Edd's mouth, and Edd points to an upstairs window. Inside, Nazz is exercising to an aerobics program on TV. Just then, Kevin comes by in his trashcan, which crashes against a tree by Nazz's window. He gets out, once again wanting to beat up Eddy, but Eddy flashes the camera at him again, blinding Kevin and sending him stumbling down the sidewalk. The Eds then climb the tree and get up on a branch to get a good shot. Unfortunately for them, the branch shakes under their weight and soon breaks. Eddy does get a picture off, but unfortunately for him, it was taken just as they were falling and shows a picture of his frightened face.
Their next stop is nowhere else but Rolf's house. Rolf is in the kitchen, using a machine to make sausages. Edd remarks that in times of drought or famine, some animals may resort to cannibalism. Eddy's problem is not with "cannibalism", but with not being able to get a clear shot, and so they step inside. While Edd and Eddy enter covertly, not wanting to disturb the Rolf in its' natural habitat, Ed barges in, wanting a hot dog. Rolf turns to look and angrily demands the Eds to leave. Eddy takes the photo. This causes a dizzy Rolf to lose his balance and fall into the meathole of the machine. When he comes out the other end, he has been transformed into a wiener. Rolf complains about this, but when he looks up, he spots Ed eating his sausages. Angry, he calls Victor to take care of the "poachers", and the Eds run for the door, chased by an angry goat. Once outside, they relax and start to plan their next picture, only for Victor to ram his head through Rolf's door and head-butt them far away.
The Eds land on a sidewalk of Rethink Avenue. Immediately after they land, a light shines on them. Kevin has put a bunch of flashlights on his bike and taken to wearing sunglasses to protect him from the camera's flash. The Eds run for their lives as Kevin chases them, running through a fence, into a house, and through a junkyard with a bunch of tires, only stopping to take a picture of Jonny taking a bath. The Eds get stuck in one of the tires, and bounce and roll away from Kevin. They bounce over a road and into a river which goes into a sewer pipe. Kevin isn't as lucky, however, as he tries to go over the road just as a garbage truck goes by, and he lands among the filth.
The Eds float downriver until they come to a ladder. When they climb out, they are in a familiar-looking trailer park. Edd wants to go home, but Eddy refuses, saying that with one more picture their calendar will be complete. His vision centers in on the Kankers' trailer, and he decides that this will be their final picture. Inside the trailer, the girls are doing their hair. Eddy steadies himself on his friends' shoulders and takes the shot. All three of the Kankers are stunned, with May believing it to be an abduction attempt, but Lee is the most grounded, pointing at Eddy. The Eds make a run for it, but they hit the Kankers' clothesline and get pinned up in it. the girls haul in their catch and approach their captive audience with beauty implements, declaring that they will make the Eds pretty.
The Eds try to sneak back to Eddy's place to fix their hair, but this is for naught, as Sarah and Jimmy intercept them on the way and take a photo. The good news is, Eddy's calendar finally gets completed. The bad news is that they, and their horrible appearance, are the June photo, and June happens to be this month. All the Eds can do is wear bags over their heads to try and have some mode of escaping the derision.
At the beginning, after Eddy takes a second picture of Ed and Edd, a coloring error makes it look like Edd did not have a hat in the picture.
When the Eds took pictures of themselves, the shot of Edd's feet show that he has small cyan socks over his long red ones, rather than just his normal red socks.
When the Eds reveal themselves after taking Sarah and Jimmy's picture, the couch has no outline. In the next shot, the outline is back.
When Rolf says "Get out of here, stupid!", his teeth are white for the second time. The first time was in "Sir Ed-a-Lot."
In the shot of Ed saying "Victor?" Rolf's outlines do not move.
Also in the next shot, the red stripe on Eddy's shirt is missing.
When the Eds say "It's Kevin!" Kevin's mouth moves, but no words come out.
When the Eds are soaked and floating on the tire, Edd and Eddy's shirts are long sleeved instead of short sleeved. This can also be seen in other episodes when characters come in contact with water that soaks them.
When Eddy says "C'mon" to Ed, the captions read "C'mon, Punk".
This episode marks the first appearance of Victor, Rolf's goat.
Ed is able to climb a tree in this episode without a problem, but other instances as seen in "Virt-Ed-Go" and the movie, he is afraid of heights.
The music playing in Nazz's room is called "Dance Party". It is heard in several more episodes.
This episode takes place in June, as evidenced by the calendar seen at the end.
When Eddy explains that only one more picture is needed, a tree can be seen in the trailer park with "Lee K. + Eddy" carved on it.
The ape calendar Eddy comes across in the trash reappears near the end of "Fool on the Ed" when the Eds were making the El Mongo Stink Bomb in Eddy's garage. However, the calendar seen in the later episode was not in color.
