The Silver Bullet

When Eddie's rival, Matt Glover, moves back into town with the same charisma and overly-competitive nature he had in kindergarten, Eddie is depressed. Their high school classroom's rock video competition brings back Eddie's upsetting memories, even nightmares, of kindergarten when Matt always outshone him. Even the family's assistance and words of wisdom cannot lift his spirits. Unwilling to submit a prepared Munster rap video, Eddie makes a spontaneous tape in class and speaks honestly about his fear. Eddie realized that "losing doesn't make you a loser"" and that he had been defeating himself.
