  • Episode Description
  • A week after Eric and Donna's engagement was called off, they are both on good terms, but have to make big decisions regarding their futures. Donna gets a new look, and Eric decides to take a year off, but to do that he needs to sell Donna's engagement ring to get some money. There's only one problem with his plan: Donna threw it off the water tower. Also, Bob is torn between Pam and Midge, and Red puts pressure on him (only because Kitty pressured Red) to choose between them. However, one of them takes the decision out of Bob's hands.moreless

    Notes (1)

    • Tanya Roberts (Midge Pinciotti) was credited as "Special Guest Appearance by", and Brooke Shields (Pamela Burkhart) was credited as "Special Appearance by".

    Trivia (7)

    • When the gang is on the water tower, you can see the pot leaf that they painted there in the first season episode Water Tower, as well as "Michael + Jackie" painted by Kelso and Fez's "self-portrait" that were put there in the fifth season episode The Immigrant Song.

    • Kitty: But, Red, if Bob picks Midge, he will re-unite a shattered family, bringing their only daughter a glimpse of happiness for the first time in her life. Kitty refers to Donna as Bob & Midge's "only daughter." However, in Eric's Birthday, Midge mentions Valerie, Donna's older sister, who has left for college. And in Eric's Burger Job, we see Tina, Donna's younger sister. So Donna isn't the Pinciotti's only daughter.

    • Kitty: You know, I tell you, Red, I don't like this situation with Bob and two women. I have put up with a lot of weird things in this neighborhood; hot-tubs, wife swapping, jogging... Now I am drawing the line! You have to make Bob choose. Kitty refers to the weird things she's put up with: Bob got a hot-tub and spent quite a bit of time in it with Pam Burkhart in Who Are You and subsequent episodes; Red's friend Bull also had a hot-tub, and held a wife-swapping party in The Good Son; and Bob and Midge experimented with jogging in Moon Over Point Place.

    • (referring to her newly blonde hair) Donna: Do you like it? Eric: Are you kidding? It's good, it's like a sign that you're loosening up. Like, maybe now you might like that thing I try in bed that makes you mad. "That thing" Eric tries in bed has never been clarified as to what, exactly, it is; however, Eric first tried it in Eric's Naughty No-No after seeing it in a porno film, and Donna told him that it was "unpleasant."

    • The music in this episode was: Drivers Seat (1978) by Sniff 'n' the Tears.

    Allusions (2)

    • Donna: I'm gonna DJ at the radio station full-time, and re-dedicate myself to feminism. Eric: At the radio station? Is that... what, are you gonna play more Heart? Donna: And other stuff. (pause) Maybe some Benetar. Heart was a hard rock band based in British Columbia, fronted by Washington-born sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. They were popular in the mid-70s. Pat Benetar was a female solo-singer, who became popular after her debut in 1979. She was also known for doing both hard rock and ballads.

    • The title of this episode, and all other episodes in Season Seven, refers to the Rolling Stones song of the same name.
