    One of the worst episodes of That 70's Show I have ever seen. Kelso, Eric, Hyde and Fez, a gang of individuals who were responsible for some of the best banter on TV for nearly a decade, were reduced to pretending to have threatened the President and chasing a van full of dogs. I know, absolutely insane stuff.

    And the Red and Kitty stuff was borderline unwatchable. Kurtwood Smith went from one of television's best dads to a complete embarrassment. He seemed like he did not want to be out there, and given this script I cannot exactly blame him.moreless
  • One of the best episodes of Season 7!

    This was definitely a highlight in Season 7, so many plots so little time. Pretty much the aftermath of the Jackie & Hyde breakup, Kelso, Hyde & Fez think the Feds are after them after a simple prank call. I love how they freak out, definitely the funniest plot. The subplot, Jackie & Donna try to learn karate, the funniest scene is when Jackie beats the crap out of her trainer. Yeah I guess that was a perfect way to deal, a lot of sequences were shot outside which was also great of the episode, this has to be the most high anybody has been, 4 stashes in a day! The C plot with Kitty & Red, Red pushes Kitty on the floor to catch a fish which was the third funniest scene ever! Oh a funny scene from the A plot is when they destroy that vacuum! Hysterical!moreless
  • Death Rays and Feds cause great imaginary panic throughout.

    One of the funniest formats for a 70s show episode is one when paranoia spreads through the gang, generally caused by too much usage of their stash, and this one is no exception, with hilarious imaginary consequences of Kelso calling the White House, and Hyde's cheer up present being finished in a day.

    Jackie and Donna at Karate was amusing, but wasn't fantastic, with some predictability, though being chased by dogs let loose by the rest of the gang was a fitting ending.

    Red and Kitty ice-fishing seemed familiar, and wasn't as great as the main plot either, but overall the episode ranks quite well in terms of humour and zany plots.moreless
  • masterpiece. simple as that.

    This episode is a pure masterpiece. It is as simple as that. I loved how constantly they were afraid of the "feds" coming to take them away, plus i believe it may have had the most circles in one episode than any other. It was funny when at the beggining, red made some excellent burns on kitty and kelso made those gun noises with the word, "BUURRNN!" after. And on the second time red stoped him, which made me laugh. I cant stop watching this on my DVR. Many things could be done to make it better, but I wouldnt make any changes myself!moreless

    • (Jackie walks in)
      Jackie: Hello Steven.
      Hyde: Jackie. You wanna talk?
      Jackie: What would I have to say to you?
      Hyde: I dunno, umm.. "I'm a crazy spoiled wackjob and I'm sorry"?

    • Fez: I don't want to get sent back to my home country. If I return in shame, I will get stoned. Then they will throw rocks at me!

    • (Red comes downstairs and sees the gang)
      Red: Oh my God! There are a hundred morons in my basement!

    • Kelso: Wait, if the vacuum cleaner was bugged, couldn't we have put it outside?
      Hyde: Damn! When Kelso's the only one thinking straight, we're in trouble.

    • Eric: Okay, we all just need to calm down. Everybody calm down! CALM DOWN! Who's yelling? WHO IS YELLING? We all just need to keep calm. (knock at door) Aah! That's it, we're all gonna die!

    • Kelso: There's a black Ford Sedan outside. Hyde's right. The Feds found us.
      Hyde: Dammit, Kelso, you finally figured out how to use a phone, and now we're all goin' to jail!

    • Hyde: Kelso, the Russians don't have a "death ray." But they do have a "stupid ray," and it's pointed directly at you.

    • Eric: Look, I think you guys are overreacting. There's no way the government would park a car right outside my house.
      Hyde: Forman, anything you think the government's not doing, they ARE doing! The only thing they didn't do is land a man on the moon. No no no no... Spielberg shot the entire thing on a Hollywood movie set. That's how he got the job for "Jaws"!

    • Red: Really, I mean, Kitty, you'd hate it! It's cold, and boring, and we both know the only ice you like is in your cocktails.

    • (about Jackie)
      Donna: I'll give you fifty bucks to take her back.
      Hyde: Fifty bucks buys me beer for a week. Freedom - that's a lifetime.

    • Kelso: Yeah, the only thing that can ruin today is if the Russians set off that Russian death ray that's pointed at the White House... no, seriously, I read about it in a magazine.
      Eric: Kelso, that was "The Flash." And it is a comic book.
      Fez: I love comic books. I wish I had thought bubbles. (pauses, looking up) You see anything?
