  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (1)

    • Donna: [Hyde] just wants one last blow-out before he has to grow up. Jackie: He doesn't need a blow-out, what he needs is a kick in the 'nads. Kitty: Oh, honey, it's the Holiday Season. At this time of year, we say 'He needs a kick in the sleigh bells!'

    Notes (1)

    • Christmas bells and horns were added to the opening theme on this episode, and the cast names were displayed in red (instead of yellow) with holly leaves around them.

    Trivia (2)

    • This is the fifth Christmas that occured during the course of the show's eight year run. When the show started, it was 1976, and they've done The Best Christmas Ever (1-12); Hyde's Christmas Rager (3-9); An Eric Forman Christmas (4-12); Christmas (6-7); and this episode, Winter (7-11), so the year should now be 1981.

    • Jackie: It's that stupid Kelso, he's always talking them into having fun. In this episode Jackie refers to Kelso as "Kelso". In every other episode she always calls him "Michael" and never "Kelso" as the rest of the gang does. She also calls hims Kelso in season 3 episode 5, "Roller Disco" because he boo-ed during her performance with Fez.

    Allusions (3)

    • Eric (to Red): I think we can safely say none of this would have happened if you'd bought me an Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle. This quote by Eric is followed by Red remembering Christmas, 1972, and the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle that he bought for Eric and broke. Evel Knievel was a stunt man famous for his motorcycle jumps as well as his missed jumps. He became famous in the late '60s and early '70s. He also marketed a series of toys, and the Stunt Cycle was one of the most popular toys in the 70s; however, it wasn't released until 1973.

    • Kitty: I'm in charge? Ohhh! (laughs and claps) This is the same as Lyndon Johnson being sworn in on the airplane after President Kennedy was... Well, that was a tragedy, but... The tragedy that Kitty is referring to is the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. After his death, Lyndon B. Johnson, his Vice President, was sworn in aboard Air Force One, in Dallas, Texas, becoming the 36th President of the United States.

    • Kitty: I can't believe you dredged up my Chappaquiddick. Chappaquiddick refers to the June, 1969 accident that Edward Kennedy was involved in. He was driving home from a party and drove off a bridge. He wasn't injured, however, his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, was killed in the accident. It was a scandal for Kennedy, as he did not report the accident until 8 hours after it had happened; as well, there were questions raised as to why Ms. Kopechne was with him, as his wife had not attended the party with him. Kennedy was not charged with manslaughter, which would have been the usual charge; he was merely charged with leaving the scene of an accident, a much lesser offence. However, this incident has often been cited as the reason why he never pursued a high-ranking career in politics.
