Chapter 4: Eat a jawbreaker or a broken jaw!

"I see dorks! Lots of them!" Kevin said, getting up while Jonny, Nazz and Rolf did, too.

"What the heck are you guys doing here?" Eddy questioned Kevin. "To give you a beating, dork!" Kevin replied. "You shouldn't have to want to beat me up if you just gave me a quarter so I can buy us some jawbreakers!" Eddy screamed.

"If you would have just purchased my go-fish cards, this disaster wouldn't happen!" Kevin was about to respond to Eddy, but Eddy kept talking. "I would have shared the stupid jawbreakers with you and the others if you had just been nice!" Kevin stood there and said, "You...would have shared?" Kevin asked Eddy. "If you hadn't chased us in our house, we wouldn't have to get catapulted to science city! Then yes, I would have shared!" Kevin was shocked. He didn't know Eddy would share his jawbreaker with him, and he didn't stop and think when he was about to beat him up at the cul-de-sac. "Eddy..." Kevin said. All the others, including Dexter, Deedee, and the two other Eds, stopped to listen to when Kevin was about to say. "...I'm sorry."

Jonny, Plank, Nazz, Rolf, Double D and Ed were shocked. This is the first time they heard Kevin say he was sorry.

"I'm really sorry, dor-I mean, Eddy. I really am. Truce?" Kevin asked, holding out his hand for Eddy to shake. Eddy thought for a moment, then shook Kevin's hand and said, "Truce." The kids cheered except for Dexter, for he noticed techincal difficulties with the rocket. "Um, guys," said Dexter, "the rocket's spinning out of contrrrroooOOOOOOOOL...!" As the rocket was spinning all the passengers were screaming. The rocket was flying into the cul-de-sac, and it was spinning into Ed's and Sarah's house. A game of pat-a-cake between Jimmy and Sarah was interupted when the rocket crashed into her room. "Ed! Get your stupid toy rocket out of my room!" screamed Sarah. All the passengers came out of the rocket. "Baby sister!" said Ed. As soon as he saw her he gave her a big hug. Dexter came out and said, "Weird place to land, huh, Deedee?"

Deedee did not hear Dexter because she was playing pat-a-cake with Jimmy. "Hey, guys!" Dexter suddenly said. "I heard your desire for jaw-breakers, so I'll tell you what: I'll make you some jawbreakers with my Handy Dandy Candy Maker 2000!

All, the kids, including Sarah and Jimmy, cheered.

After the house was cleaned up, the kids had some jaw-breakers that Dexter made. Double D patted Eddy on the back and said to him, "I'm proud of you, Eddy." Eddy nodded in response. Deedee and Dexter enjoyed their jawbreakers as well. "I should make more of these!" Dexter said to himself.

Later on, The Eds and the others waved good-bye to Dexter and Deedee as he Dexter flew his rocket back to his lab.

"Let's go back and meet Dexter again sometime!" Eddy said, excited. "We'll see, Eddy." Double D replied. The others sang a song:

"When you stub your toe and it hurts, you know..."

The Eds sang along.

"Friends are there to help you! When you fall on your face and your teeth are misplaced, friends are there to help you! When your flyin' low, and you're givin' a show, friends are there to help you! When you take off your shoes and your feet stink...PEE-YEW! Friends are there to help you!"

"Second verse, same as the first," said Jimmy. Then the kids sang the song again.
