    • Kelso: Autumn is harvest time for the farmer. At dawn, my dad and I were out in the fields, picking carrots fresh off the trees. Hyde: Kelso, carrots don't... that's good, you should put that down.

    • Donna: So, what do you guys wanna do when you grow up? Eric: Um, not touch dead people. Ever.

    • (about Edna's job) Fez: Oh, I am so excited to be in the food service industry. May I cut the cheese?

    • The music used in this episode was: Karn Evil 9: 1st Impression, Pt. 2 (1973) by Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Cat's In The Cradle (1974) by Harry Chapin; Bad Blood (1975) by Neil Sedaka.

    • Kitty is shown delivering a baby but she's not qualified to deliver a baby since she's only a nurse. Reponse: Plenty of people who aren't medically qualified to deliver a baby do so. Paramedics and firefighters often deliver babies. Nurses sometimes do, if a doctor isn't available.

    Allusions (2)

    • Jackie: I'm changing a tire! I feel like Nancy Drew. Nancy Drew was the fictional creation of author Carolyn Keene. She was a girl-detective and very self-sufficient.

    • Red: You and your mom have a bad history. Neither of you can nurture the other's self esteem because you've both been damaged by past criticism and shame. Hyde: Are you okay? Red: I'm working half-days, so I watch a lot of Donahue. This refers to The Phil Donahue Show, a daytime talk show that ran from 1970 to 1996. The show often featured psychologists who discussed social problems.
