Cents-less is episode 79a of Edward and Eric. It premiered on Kids' WB on December 15, 2001.


Bill pretends to file for bankruptcy so he can properly show his family what it's like to be poor.



  • The title is a play on words with "senseless", which is an adjective that describes anything that's foolish.
  • This is one of the very few episodes where Edward only serves as a minor character.
    • Additionally, this is one of the few episodes where Eric is absent.
  • Happy Sailor Jig by Nicholas Carr serves as the title card track for this episode.
  • This episode reveals that Mr. Goodman has a part-time job at the local homeless shelter.


(The episode opens with Edward whistling a tune while walking down the street. He walks past the soup kitchen, but stops and is surprised upon seeing Bill)

Edward: Mr. Breault? What are you doing here at the local soup kitchen?

Bill: Ahoy, Edward! I come here every Sunday to mock the homeless. And to get food as well -- the junk here doesn't cost a dime. I don't know why people would pay $37 for salmon at Partial Foods, when you can come here for a free quick bite, AND you can make the homeless miserable at the same time!

Edward: Well, I understand the "free food" part, but I don't know about teasing hobos. That seems pretty rude, don't you think?

Bill: Ah, it's no big deal, all they remember is what they had from the dumpster last night. They should be lucky I hand 'em job resumes instead of money. (suddenly, a lightbulb appears over his head) Hey! This talk of homeless people gives me an idea!

Edward: You're gonna donate some food?

Bill: No.

Edward: You're gonna pretend to file for bankruptcy so you can show your overwhelming, bossy family what it's like to be at the bottom, for a change? (laughs) Get it? Change?

(We see live-action black-and-white stock footage of a man performing a rimshot)

Bill: You must've read my mind, boyo. But for that pun, I want you to scram!

(Edward quickly takes off)
