    • Jackie: If I become a model, I won't have to work, or study, or think ever again! Donna: That's great; I mean, what's thought done for anyone anyway? Jackie: Nothing! But modeling has made people rich and famous.

    • Mountie #1: And now we're gonna get some answers. Hyde: What are you gonna do? Torture us? Kelso: Yeah. You gonna make us listen to Anne Murray records? Mountie #2: Hey, she's a wonderful performer, and you're not funny. Mountie #1: No. I think what we're gonna do is call your parents! Fez (to Eric): Oh, Red is going to kill you. I mean... obie deebie doobie.

    • Hyde (to the Mounties): You got us. We're here to take over your country. Eric (laughing nervously): Hyde, I know it seems funny when you say stuff like that but, um, DON'T.

    • Hyde: We're part of an elite, high school terrorist team. The Strike Force Wisconsin!

    • Mountie #1: Beer never hurt anyone, my friend. You're well within the legal limit on that. Mountie #2: But you're over the limit on foreign kids you can smuggle out of this country! Kelso: Well, what is the legal limit on that? We only had one foreign kid! Mountie #1: The limit is zero, you hoser!

    Trivia (6)

    • There is a whole string of very similar goofs in this episode: the border agents of any country do not monitor the people leaving it, rather they monitor the people entering the country. So it is a big goof that the kids have to be inspected by the mounties as they are about to leave Canada. Fez would've had a problem with US immigration, not the Canadian Mounties. Also, a green card is a document that allows a foreigner to reside legally in the US; it also allows you to enter the US as it is a type of visa -- it has nothing to do with entering Canada, since it is a US government document for non-Americans. On top of that, Fez is a foreign exchange student, so he has to be in the US on a student visa.

    • 'O Canada' did not become the Canadian National Anthem until 1980; until then Canada's National Anthem was "God Save the Queen". Response: The Canadian National Anthem 'O Canada' has been recognized in its current version since 1967, however did not become 'Official' until 1980. 'God Save the Queen' is the Royal Anthem and has never been the National Anthem.

    • The original plan to go to Canada without Kelso or Leo doesn't make any sense: As established in the episode earlier in the second season, Halloween, Kelso is the only one of the kids who's over 18, and therefore the only one old enough to buy beer in Canada. If they had gone without him, they wouldn't have been able to buy any beer in the first place.

    • When the guys are stopped at the border, a sign in the background lists the distances to some Canadian cities. On the sign, Winnipeg is misspelled as "Winnepeg".

    • The guys sing "O Canada". They sing the line "From far and wide, O Canada". This line wasn't added until 1981.

    • Hyde: I'm here to nail Margaret Trudeau. Mountie #1: Yeah, been there... Mountie #2: Done that! Margaret Trudeau (1948 - ) was the wife of the 15th Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. She married him when she was 22 and he was 52; their marriage shocked Canadians because of the age difference. Initially, they seemed to be happy, but by 1978, Margaret Trudeau's antics were causing concern in Canada; she was rumored to have had affairs with various politicians and dignitaries, and her alleged promiscuity had become a national joke.

    • Fez: They're going to throw me in Canadian jail! Have you seen Midnight Express? It's like that, but with hockey sticks. Midnight Express (1978) is a movie about an American who gets caught smuggling drugs in Turkey, and is thrown in prison, and has to learn to survive the horrible conditions there. It is based on a true story.
