  • Quotes (13)

    • Brooke: Actually, I could kind of use a hand, 'cause I'm scared. Kelso: That's perfect, 'cause I'm terrified.

    • Eric: When we go out together, people think I'm your little brother. Donna: That's true. They think I shouldn't have you out so late.

    • Eric: I'm just going to have to warn you, I'm exhausted, so you're going to have to do all the work. Donna: Why should today be any different?

    • Steven: Should've seen it coming, Forman. When you're deeply, truly happy, it's a sure sign you're doing everything wrong. Jackie: True. When Steven's unhappy, I know our relationship is in good shape. Steven: Well, then we've been tip-top since the minute I met you.

    • Kitty: You have been such a big help, working yourself nearly to death. I made you your special sandwich. Eric: Awww... the 'Eric McSweety'. Hyde: It's a regular sandwich, hold the masculinity.

    Trivia (3)

    • Donna (to Eric): I stayed home from college to be with you. Donna was set to head off to college in Madison, but changed her mind and stayed home in the episode Magic Bus, earlier this season.

    • The music used in this episode was: Take a Chance on Me (1977) by ABBA.

    • The license plate after the opening credits had the year 79 (in yellow text with a black background), but the license plate at the end of the show had the year 78 (in white text with a blue background). This discrepancy in the year has been corrected in syndication; now both opening and closing show the 1979 validation tag.

    • Eric: I was woken from my afternoon nap by my girlfriend for some afternoon delight. This refers to the 1976 song "Afternoon Delight" by Starland Vocal Band.

    • Eric: As God is my witness, I will never go hungry or horny again. This is a reference to a famous scene from the 1939 movie Gone With The Wind in which Scarlett O'Hara says almost the same thing... except the horny part.

    • Fez: Jump in Smokey, Bandit's on the move. This is a reference to the 1977 Burt Reynolds car-chase movie Smokey And The Bandit.

    • Eric: Life is a Cabaret, my friend. Cabaret is a musical made in 1972. It's about a Cabaret girl who falls in love with an English scholar, gets pregnant, gets engaged, and then decides she doesn't want to get married or have a baby. One of the last songs in the movie is called "Cabaret", and the chorus has the line "life is a Cabaret, my friend."
