Unhappy Eddie
13 April 2016 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

Eddie Haskell attempted to break away and assert his independence on a number of occasions during the last two seasons of LITB. Season 6 had "Bachelor at Large" and "Summer in Alaska," and earlier, in Season 5, there was "Eddie Quits School." All these episodes explored the psychology of Eddie in interesting ways. Here Eddie's father has let him drop out of school to take a full-time job at a filling station. Eddie at first acts very cocky about his new lifestyle. But it soon becomes apparent that as Eddie is now following a different life track from Wally and his other pals, it's not as easy any more to get together with them; he is becoming lonely and isolated. What's more, Wally and Lumpy visit Eddie at the filling station: Eddie isn't doing well at his job, and his employer is close to exasperation. It's clear that despite his wise-guy cover-ups, Eddie is not happy with his new life. So Wally goes to see the principal, the sympathetic and fair Mr. Farmer, who works out a scheme to get Eddie back into school.

One fault of the episode is that the serious consequences of dropping out of school are not explored (difficulty in finding a better or better-paying job, etc.) Still, this is one of the essential episodes focusing on Eddie. After watching this one, be sure to catch "Bachelor at Large."
