    • Hyde: I can't do it! I've gone soft, man. I'm like Forman! It sickens me.

    • Jackie: Fez, stop ordering stuff! Fez: (seriously) Okay, you need to chill out little girl. Didn't you hear Kelso? The Vineyard is having a dine and dash promotion. Everything's free.

    • Fez: Caroline has upset me. I can't wait to dine and dash on her ass, her beautiful ass.

    • Bob: Midgey, come on. We're going home. Midge: But I have gin! Bob: We're playing bridge!

    • Jackie: Oh my God, I'm a thief! Hyde: Technically you're an accessory. Eric: Which should make you happy because you love accessories.

    Trivia (2)

    • (regarding the 'dine and dash') Donna: Hyde, we're not doing this, and especially not you, 'cause you're on probation. Hyde got probation for his charge of possession in the third season opener Reefer Madness.

    • Fez: My new lady-love, Caroline, works there. Donna: Caroline from the concert? The concert that Donna is referring to is the Led Zeppelin concert that she won tickets to in Fez Gets The Girl. Rather than use the tickets herself, she gave one ticket to Fez, and one to Caroline, creating their first date for them.

    Allusions (3)

    • In the scene where Hyde is attempting to leave the restaurant to 'Dine and Dash', the scene goes into slow motion, Hyde is sweating, his heart pounding, and Caroline talks to him in a 'slow motion' voice. This is a reference to opening scene of Midnight Express (1978), where the main character is attempting to leave Turkey while smuggling drugs.

    • Fez: Isn't [Caroline] lovely? She reminds me of that song, "Isn't She Lovely?" Fez is referring to the song, Isn't She Lovely (1976) by Stevie Wonder. The first line of the song, and the chorus, both have the line "Isn't she lovely?"

    • The scene where Donna and Eric start to run out of the restaurant (where the camera slows to a freeze and turns to sepia colours) is homage to the final scene of the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969.
