Ed's character tried to force his victim, Tanya, to eat a banana peel. He knew her dermadrama regarding rinds of fruit would make great tv. She refused and said, "Take your banana and split". To which he replied, "Don't you like it? It has a peel...". Tanya shoved the offending former fruit covering into Ed's mouth and forced it in. He gagged and ran to wash out the bitter taste with some cleansing lather. This is really why their show is called a Soap Opera...

Hidermaphobia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: hy derm a fobe eeya

The eyes on potatoes stared at her accusingly;eating cherries was the pits;beets had her beat;peas made her snap and she feared bananas a bunch. She'd turnip her nose at rutabagas; carrots made her want to top herself and onions made her cry. It was then no wonder that when the cute guy in Produce asked her to go out on a "date", she ran screaming from the grocery store! Now Heidi is in hiding.

Etymology: Hide(body covering of a living animal or the dressed skin of an animal) & Derma (the deep vascular inner layer of the skin) & Phobia (fear; an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme and irrational fear of simple things or social situations)
