Ed ruffles Al’s hair
Ed (hands on his hips, determined expression). okay! good!
(He STRIDES determinedly away)
Al (feeling his head): He pat my head.
Trisha stares and then puts her finger to her chin thoughtfully.
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PAGE. THE EXPRESSIONS. LITTLE ED’S RIDIC DETERMINATION. LITTLE AL’S CUTIE GOBSMACKED REATIONS. Trisha just being like “…huh.”
You can see this is the exact moment where Ed was like “okay, this is my little brother and nobody will mess with him and I WILL LOVE AND PROTECT HIM and I WILL GIVE UP MY LIMBS FOR HIM IF THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES AND”. Coming to love Al was coupled with having to realize that his Mom loved him no matter what, and that doing good by her also meant accepting Al. That’s why he felt like he failed Al when Al got hurt on his watch, that’s why he was so serious about protecting him- this was one of the first things he learned from his Mom (and though he’d never admit it, his dad), this was one of his first steps to growing up, probably the most important lesson he felt he learned- protect your little brother. That’s your job. So when he failed to do that, he felt like he’d betrayed the most important truth he’d ever known and let down his entire family- not just Al, but his Mom too.

“Do you feel better now?”
Ike always finds ways to cheer up his big brother. Even if he ends up using words he’s heard from Kenny.
