AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SUCH A GREAT SOLAR POWERED BOAT...

In his adulthood, Eddie was going to fix the economic downturn, solve the energy crisis, and end world hunger. But then Eddie tried crack.

This is why I could never become a scientist. It's all fun and games until they take your pizza away.

i actually remember watching this in high school. 8 year old eddie dying from 2 hits of crack really deterred me from drugs and turned me into the fine, upstanding lush i am today.

tough times on wisteria lane

gawd, yeah, i totally had to watch this in my "life skills" class in the 8th grade. at least it teaches you how to properly smoke a crack pipe, something that's missing from most public school curricula.

Seems pot isn't the gateway drug after all!

How did those kids manage to get their hands on such an impressive torch? Not to mention the crack pipe. Or the crack.

Is that Helloween on the soundtrack- the most popular band amongst today's suburban African-American pre-teens?

Hester said...

How did a bunch of seven year olds get their hands on crack? And how very PC to make the white kid the pusher man.

To think of all the time I wasted dealing weed in elementary school, when the real money was in crack.

i don't remember my parents sounding like that the last time i smoked crack.

i think he dropped a hit of acid to help come down from the crack

I actually do recall eating pizza in prison...

Adam said...

As far as child actors featured on this site go, those kids were pretty good. Is there some sort of award we can give for Eddie's performance? That "no MTV, no little brother stealing your underwear" speech at the end was quite moving.

Marty said...

So, when Eddie was on the phone, was he talking to Whitney Houston? And why does his family eat dinner in the dark?

Wow. I totally remember watching that video in middle school...

...is there a reason his dad looks like a spray-painted white guy?

At the very beginning, there's this spooky ghost-lady standing to the left behind the kids as they walk down the sidewalk...is she supposed to be the dealer?

I like the naive parents:

"Surely our little ten year old son isn't spending his five dollar a week allowance on crack!"

You poor naive bastards. You don't deserve to be parents, believing an out of touch fantasy like that.

Now whenever I hear "The Ides of March" by Iron Maiden I'll think of Eddie (coincidence?) the patron Saint of Crack.

Ben said...

doesn't make any sense that the white kid would initiate the crack usage. totally backwards.

The person who edited this fucked up. He cut out some of the greatest parts of the movie. Like the one where eddie asks if he will become addicted and the white kids says that his brother does it all the time and he is not addicted. they should of just posted the original untouched.

How many times have I heard the scientists-first-time-on-drugs story.

Eddie is acting a little weird, he's locked himself in his room and just listens to "White Room" on repeat.

Tom said...

Does anyone else notice how appropriate it is that the white kid provides the crack?

OriginalDavid said...

that music rocked soooo hard. i want the soundtrack to this.

msmassacre said...

If there's one thing I've learned from the show it's that crack makes you puke. A lot. There should be more puking for a first-timer such as Eddie.

Tipsy McStagger said...

well at least there is plenty of pizza.

Fat 'n Boring said...

Eddie's nightly ritual consisted of smoking crack and playing "Zork" on his Commodore 64.

I watched this in middle school you guys edited out the funniest parts, like the whole phone conversation and the guy coming in at the end explaining that he had a heart condition or something.

Oh, it's definitely better for a kid to grow up making NUCLEAR BOMBS than it is for them to grow up to be drug users. See, it's socially acceptable to do things that result in hundreds or thousands of people having to deal with the toxic substances you put into the atmosphere. It's just WRONG WRONG WRONG if the toxic substance is consumed by you alone, and the consequences, for the most part, are yours alone to have to face.

How did we ever manage to end up having such warped priorities and values? Thankfully, here at the end of the double-zero decade, it seems Drug Prohibition has finally started to become unpopular with more than just the drug-using element of the population; its propaganda has become pretty much a universal laughingstock, at this point.

...and worst of all, no crack!

I really enjoy how his parents are clueless that their son has become a crack addict at age eleven.

I actually had to watch this movie in my sixth grade health class. It was a running joke for about the next three years. I totally remember the little crack pipe kid!!!

I watched this like 6 years ago in health class. The other day i was smoking weed and somehow thought of this, but i couldnt find it! Finally found it! Does anyone know the name of the original movie?
