  • Eric and his friends go watch Star Wars at the movies and Eric fantasizes that he's there and all his friends and family too. This was a horrible episode in my opinion. It was so boring. Nothing exciting happened.I fell asleep watching this. haa

    • Kelso: Laurie, what's going on? You're acting like you're liking me, and that's weird. Laurie: It's like I told you Kelso, I'm bored. Kelso: Well that's very flattering, but uh, you know, Jackie and I are back together. Laurie: Oh. I understand. Do you wanna see my appendix scar? Kelso: Once again, (looks at it) what's-her-name and I are back together!

    • Eric: So David, still got that big ol' curve in your spine? Fez: Can I see it?

    • (dressed up as storm troopers) Jackie: Oh my god, you guys just gotta come over to the dark side! Fez: They have free food!

    • (about David) Eric: I don't know. If I hit this guy, Donna's just gonna be pissed. Kelso: No, man. Chicks dig that stuff! I mean, Leia, right, she acted like she was mad at Han. But I could tell she liked him. Hyde: Kelso, man, what are you, an idiot? Leia likes Luke, I mean she kissed him on that bridge! Kelso: Uh! Just for luck!

    • Fez: I'm so excited about Star Whores. Hyde: Fez man, it's Star Wars. Fez: Screw that. Hyde: Hey Forman, man, this thing better be good. If I don't see some space jugs, I'm going to be super pissed. Eric: Oh, hey, guys, I heard it was okay. Kelso: Well, there is no way it's better than the Planet of the Apes. I mean, those apes were really good actors.
