Series Information
First appearance:
Last appearance:

The "big boss" of Parcher & Murphy. He first appeared in "Next" when he hired Lynette because he liked her. He fires the majority people at the company in "That's Good, That's Bad" due to a sexual harassment lawsuit against them. He hires Tom in "There's Something About a War". In the following episode, Silly People, he and Tom place bets that Tom could do certain tricks, one of them being eating a donut out of the toilet. Tom became known as "Toilet Boy". Lynette tries to stop all of these games, so Ed tells her if she could eat a package of raw meat, they'll stop. Lynette succeeds and Ed and Tom have had a business-like relationship since. But after having marital problems with his wife Fran, he asks Lynette to send instant messages to her to help him with his sex life. When Fran figures out it wasn't Ed, she tells him to fire the person who wrote the IMs or she'll leave him. He tells her it was Tom, and fires Tom instead.
