    • Kelso: Hyde's right. One time I asked Jackie what was wrong, and she didn't shut up for, like, three straight days! Fez: You know, Kelso, sometimes, you do not know what you have until it is gone. And then someone else has it, and it is not you. And then that someone else is really happy. Kelso: What are you talking about? Hyde: You don't know what he's talking about? That's it, get the helmet!

    • Red (to Bob and Midge): So, you two are going to save your marriage by dating strangers. Great. Midge: When you say it like that, Red, it sounds stupid. Red: Okay, Midge, say it so it doesn't sound stupid.

    • Eric: Man, last night we could hear the Pinciottis fighting all the way across the driveway. It was horrible. It was all, (imitating Bob) 'You're the devil, Midge!' and (imitating Midge) 'Oh, Bob, shut up!' Kelso (laughing and imitating Eric imitating Midge): 'Oh, Bob, shut up!' That's classic! Hyde: Man, if you get any dumber, you're going to need a helmet.

    • Kitty: Bob and Midge want to take us out to dinner tonight. Red: Bob and Midge? Kitty, it's my birthday! Kitty: I know but they like you and they want you to have fun on your birthday like I do. Red: If they really liked me they'd leave me alone!

    • Bob: Hey, Donna, Eric, glad you're here, great news! Midge: Your father and I had sex. Donna: Oh my god.

    Allusions (3)

    • Ted: Speaking of, has anyone read Equus? I gave a copy to Midge, but, no offence, Sweetie, it may be a little too deep for her. Midge: Wait a minute, what do you mean, 'no offence'? Ted: Well, I mean, don't be offended. Midge: Oh! Equus is a 1973 play written by Peter Shaffer; it is a play about a psychiatrist who tries to help a young man who is fascinated by horses. The psychiatrist has to first find a way to communicate with the boy, before he can solve the puzzle of why the boy blinded six horses.

    • (Bob and Midge enter the restaurant with their dates) Bob: Hey, hey, the gang's all here. This is my date, Carol. Midge: And this is my date, Ted. This is an homage to the 1969 movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, about two sexually enlightened couples.

    • Red: What the hell are you doing in my livingroom? Kelso: Watching Star Trek... in color. See that guy, he’s one side black and one side white and the other guy is one side white, one side black. In color! Not only is the gang watching Star Trek, but the episode that they're watching is Let That Be Your Last Battlefield.
