  • Casey returns again.

    8.5
    Well in a fitting of Eric having nothing to do with his life, in a continuation to the last episode in which he finds out his calling is being a teacher, he realizes he has an INC in PE which means he needs to retake the class, the only catch is the teacher is Casey which makes him suffer. The whole plot was quite silly because it revolves around Eric not trying to do a pull-up. Kind of pathetic. But he does in in the end which is always good. The subplot inn which Kelso & Fez fight over the better bedroom & make a beauty pageant out of it, well that's just good TV!moreless
  • A Miss America pageant for the not-so-haunted better room!

    8.7
    The competition for the room with ensuite is a hilarious plot for the episode, as is Red getting his revenge on Kelso and Fez's apartment for the years of trashing the basement, and the way it comes together is very funny.



    Eric having to pass gym is also a great plot, as is him trying to whore out Donna to graduate, and his inability to do one pull up is just Forman all over.



    So whether it is a haunted room, a fill in coach or a potato chip war, this episode has all the makings of a fine 70s show instalment.moreless
  • This is one of those episodes in which the side plots (Fez and Kelso's fight over the room, and Red acting like one of the kids) were better than the main plot (Eric flunking PE).moreless

    I love how Red became a guest in Fez and Kelso's apartment and acted just as they did in his home. Dumping chips on the couch! Clogging the toilet! And then having sex in the bedroom! So funny! I love Red and Kitty!



    And the beauty pageant-like competition was great! Especially why they had to nix the swimsuit competition. Ha ha!



    The gym storyline wasn't so funny. It was kind of stupid too. Wouldn't the school have sent all the kids their diplomas after graduation (even though they missed the ceremony)? And wouldn't Eric have noticed that he didn't get one? It seems a bit out there to me. And I'm not sure I like Luke Wilson being so sleazy.

  • Got an F in PE!

    9.1
    I got to see a taping of this episode it was hilarious and it will always remain a special episode to me. The whole thing with Eric failing P.E. in high school was funny and then going back and trying to get credit for it with Casey Kelso being his instructor. The funniest thing was that Eric couldn't do a single pull up and he had to struggle his way up eventually, since the "force was with him!" Kelso and Fez move into a new apartment and they compete for the big room. As they both compete for the room you can see the actors having fun in their activities. This episode still cracks me up!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Eric: Man, it's like I finally figured out what I want to do with my life and now I might never be able to do it and might I add, through no fault of my own.
      Donna: Eric, the last time you used the phrase "through no fault of my own" was when you said "Donna, your cat's dead, through no fault of my own." Which I later found out meant, "Donna, I ran over your cat."

      In the episode Donna references the season 2 episode Kiss of Death, in which Eric accidentally runs over her cat, Mr. Bonkers, and tries to hide it from her.

    • (reading from his transcript)
      Eric: "You have failed to meet the requirements for graduation. To receive your diploma you must attend summer session P.E."
      Hyde: HA!
      Eric: Ha? I didn't graduate and all you have to say is "Ha?"
      Hyde: Oh, and also "Hee Hee."

      Since Eric was not present for the graduation ceremony, which was held in the fifth season episode Celebration Day, he would not have known that he didn't graduate.

    • The gym in this episode is noticeably smaller than in episodes such as in Prom Night and Tornado Prom. [Maybe it's not the same gym...]

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Red: All right, I want everybody who doesn't live in this house to get out... now!
      Kelso: Well, you're a real bummer, man. Come on, Fez. Let's go to our new apartment where people can do whatever they want whenever they want just like the Bible says... "Let my people do whatever they want."

    • (sees the aftermath of the guy's potato chip war)
      Red: What the hell?
      Kelso: We'll clean it up later, dude.
      Red: I'm not your "dude" and you never clean anything up!
      Kelso: Well, we mean to, but then we leave and then we come back and its already cleaned up.

    • (entering Fez and Kelso's new apartment)
      Kitty: I brought you a housewarming gift! Glass grapes! Every so often someone tries to eat one! It's a real conversation starter.
      Fez: (ashamed) I remember.

    • Donna: So get this, I went down to the gym to talk to Casey and he said that the only way he'd pass you is if I'd go out on a date with him.
      Eric: What? Oh, thank you Donna! Thank you!
      Donna: So, you'd let me go out with him?
      Eric: Well Donna, if you really loved me... I mean... you'd date other men
      Donna: Get bent! (Donna leaves the house angrily)
      Eric: If she really loved me she'd date other women.

    • Jackie: Michael, you should have gotten the room with the bathroom... you earned it by being born better-looking.
      Kelso: Oh, well, I could've had it but Fez said that there were evil spirits in there so I made him take it.
      Hyde: Man, I can't believe you fell for that... especially after that time he told you evil spirits lived in that hot dog and then you gave him that.

    • Red: You eat my food, you dirty up my house and every time I go into a bedroom I have to wonder about finding one of you naked with some poor girl!
      Fez: Well, at least you know that if you find me naked in a room, I'm by myself.

    • Eric: Any tricks to doing a pull-up?
      Red: You pull... up!

    • Eric: I don't know why Donna's mad at me.
      Red: You'll find as you go through life that if you try to turn your girlfriend into a prostitute, she gets cranky.
      Eric: But she's all that's standing in between me and the rest of my life.
      Red: You're lucky this table is standing between my foot and your ass!

    • (Red is making himself comfortable and Fez and Kelso's new apartment)
      Red: You boys are gonna need a plumber. I tried to flush your pillow down the toilet but it just wouldn't go. Ooh! Matches!

    • Jackie: So, we're gonna have to skip the swimsuit competition because Fez won't promise not to show us his wee-wee.
