Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Kelso accidentally shoots Hyde with a BB gun

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". I definitely was laughing very hard all the way. The characters were all freakin' hilarious in this episode and the lines were excellent. I was laughing hard from start to finish. I definitely recommend it to any fans that need to laugh very hard. Kitty with her menopause in this episode was definitely hilarious. Hyde and Kelso fighting because Kelso doesn't want Hyde to go out with Jackie and then Kelso accidentally shoots Hyde with his BB gun was hilarious. Donna telling Eric that Kelso accidentally shot Eric's hamster when he was little was very funny. Hyde faking that Kelso shot him in the eye to teach Kelso a lesson was also very good. Hyde said that Kelso only shot in the shoulder. Eric and Donna having their disagreement of what couples should do whenever they have a situation is also funny. Kitty giving Red "his space" because Red said that Kitty with menopause is crazy made me laugh hard. Kelso saying "You lied" and then Hyde shoots Kelso with his BB gun is funny. Fez at the very end of the episode was just making me laugh very hard with "black is the color of death" and all that. OMG, Fez's lines was an excellent way to end this excellent episode. Overall, an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". 10/10moreless
  • Eh, whatever...

    This plot I didn't like so much, Oh come one Kelso shooting Hyde with a BB Gun, I thought the writers were running out of ideas. I liked how Hyde made Kelso learn a lesson when he was faking it the whole time. Though the A plot interested me, Jackie was in pain once again & Hyde didn't console her, that was typical of Hyde. Eric & Donna fight over the most stupidest things, this episode shows why, Fighting on when their upset, giving space or comfort, does that really matter when it has nothing to do with their relationship? :-(moreless
  • Hyde gets shot in the eye... or does he?

    Fez was terrific in this episode, providing too much information to everyone, temporarily getting the girl and generally having some great one-liners. Kelso shooting Hyde is hilarious and has so many hilarious moments aswell such as him trying to figure out why he shot Hyde and Hyde milking the BB shot for all its worth. Hyde’s other plot regarding comforting Jackie was also pretty funny, and ends the streak of episodes with his beard, and while Eric and Donna’s argument wasn’t quite as entertaining it does have a great scene between Red and Kitty and overall, this episode is a barrel of laughs.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Fez kisses Nina at the DMV, he puts his hands on her behind. When she turns to leave, we see two full hand prints on her white pants. However, before they kissed, she had been fingerprinting Fez, and only his finger tips would have had ink on them, not his full hands.

    • Eric (sarcastically): Thank God for the honest ones like Richard Nixon, huh?
      Red: What did you say?
      Eric: Nixon was framed and Kennedy was a commie!
      Red: Good.

      That is the conversation in this episode; however, in the first season episode Streaking, Red asks President Ford why he pardoned Nixon:

      Red (to President Ford): How the hell could you pardon Nixon?

      In Streaking, Red is clearly angry when he asks his question; both his words and his tone indicate that he felt Nixon should not have been pardoned. But in Black Dog, he no longer feels that way, and seems to like Nixon, getting angry when Eric suggests that Nixon was a crook.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Fez: I am in pain.
      Donna: (pats Fez's shoulder) Fez, we're really sorry about Nina. You know, rejection hurts.
      Fez: No, Nina and I were kissing and she made me stop and now I am in pain.
      Donna: (removes her hand) Ew.

    • Hyde: Now I'm gonna punish [Kelso] the way my parents punish me.
      Eric: You're gonna leave him at the mall?

    • Kelso: It's not a gun, it's a BB gun. I lost it when I was 10 and I found it this morning buried in my backyard.
      Donna: Why were you digging in your backyard?
      Kelso: Uh, dinosaurs. Watch the news, Donna!

    • Jackie: Do you know what's going on?
      Kitty: No, I don't know anything.
      (Jackie leaves the room)
      Kitty: I know everything!

    • Red: Look, Jackie. I know that things seem grim. But your father's rich, right?
      Jackie: Uh-huh.
      Red: Well, then I'm sure that whatever trouble he's in, he'll buy his way out and wriggle free.
      Jackie: You're right! I mean, this is America. The rich are treated differently here.
      Red : Yep, and I'm so glad I took some shrapnel to make that possible.
      Jackie: Me too!

    • Jackie: So come on Steven, let's shave that beard!
      Donna: Jackie, you just gave an order in the form of a cheer.
