    A very special episode of That 70s Show, definitely eventful and it just gave all the fans that have been watching since day one a special treat. We look back at footage we haven't seen before to see how everyone met. That 70s Show could have copped out and just have done a clip show with no new material to look back on the past four years, but they gave us something even better.

    A look back on how everyone met, things previously not shown, new material. How everyone met was just hilarious and this episode just marked the end of an era as in the next season even though they all still go to school, this is the last season where they show them in school really all together. Even though high school didn't play a huge part on this show, the yearbook in the end I'm sure made everyone at least a tad nostalgic.

    We got a lot of funny gags such as Kelso getting hit by Kelso which remains a running gag throughout the series or Kelso wanting to walk in on Donna naked. This was just a very good episode of That 70s Show that is one of the best with it's great balance of hilarity and nostalgia.moreless
  • now we know how they met each other

    in this episode it contains flashbacks on how the gang met each other. We learn that Eric met donna when their were 7 and looks like bob use to be buff. Eric met Hyde by Hyde proteting Eric from donna for a quarter and don't how Eric met Kelso but i know they met in 1st grade but i don't how Kelso met Jackie and I wish the guys met Fez as kids because that would of been freaking funny and they had debts of I dream of Jeanie and bewitch and they did the Cicle all their lives awesomenessmoreless
  • Well, okay; it really didn't feel like a clip show. But, hey; the origins are all filled in.

    As the gang gets ready for their seinor (for Jackie, juinor) pictures, they remember when they were young.

    Let's see; Eric and Donna met when they were 8, Fez was a foregin exchange student 2 years earlier, Donna's boobs are shown to the gang boys but Kelso, Jackie was 5 when she and Kelso had their first date, Hyde was always bad, any many, MANY more!

    Look, I can go on and on and on about this stuff, but, really, I didn't like who the guys were titled in the ending. But, hey, at least we got That 70's Show the original.

    Overally, I LOVE it! Love it, love it, love it!moreless
  • Now we know how everyone met.

    In this episode, we see how everyone met up. Donna and Eric first met when the Pinciottis moved in and Donna punched Eric in the gut. Hyde & Eric first met when Hyde walked Eric home and Kitty put them both in a bath. Kelso, Eric & Hyde met Fez after he got pranked by the football team. Hyde helped Fez and when they heard his incredibly long name, Kelso wanted to call him Captain Poo Face. We also see Hyde beat the crap out of Kelso many times and Donna hit Jackie with a dodgeball. Then we see that Hyde & Fez alked in on Donna naked and saw her boobs. Kelso didn't see them, so he kept trying to. By the end, Kelso got to see Donnas boobs. Awesome!!!moreless
  • I think this is a very great landmark in That '70s Show's history. It's about the gang having to come up with a quote in the yearbook and they reminice about there past and how they all met. It also shows all the times Kelso beat up Kelso and it was funnymoreless

    I found it very funny. It is a classic episode. I loved the flashbacks to when they all met. All and all the episode was a very good episode that was written very well. I think what made it funny was all the flashbacks especially the whole I dream of Jeanie and Samantha from bewicthed thing. It was funny seeing them when they were little. The whole storyline was just very hilarious and is an episode that I will never forget because it's such a memorable episode. I think that it really made season 4 funnier beside the musical episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • In this episode Hyde and Eric meet at age seven after Hyde protects Eric from Donna who had just moved in next door. But in the season one episode First Date, Eric says that he and Hyde have been friends since kindergarten.

    • When Fez is telling Eric, Kelso and Hyde what his real name is (covered by the ringing school bell) he is actually saying all the names of the cast members. You can clearly see him saying "Ashton Kutcher" as he starts saying "Fez's" name.

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Truckin' (1970) by The Greatful Dead.

    • In this episode, Kelso says that he's the only one who's never seen Donna's breasts. However, in the first season episode Hyde Moves In, at the beginning of the episode, everyone goes skinny dipping. So Kelso must have seen her breasts.

    • In episode #1 "Pilot" Donna says "you could have had me when I was four". But in this episode they first met when they where seven.

    • Jackie is younger than the other characters. While the actors are credited with playing the characters as 13 years old, Jackie's younger version is credited as 12 years old. However, while the other actors are credited as 7 years old, Jackie's younger self is credited as 5, when she should have been credited as 6.

    • The actors playing Eric, Hyde and Kelso at a younger age are all credited as playing them at the age of 7 and 13 but we found out earlier in "Halloween"(episode #30) that Kelso is actually a year older than them so the actors playing him at the age of 7 and 13 should have been credited as playing him at the age of 8 and 14.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • (at age 13)
      Hyde: No way is Samantha hotter than Jeannie! Hey, I heard they made an episode they never aired where Jeannie gets totally naked. The government banned it.
      Kelso: All I know is, with one little nose twitch, Samantha's clothes could be off! And that's hot.
      Eric: What if you didn't have to choose? What if you could be with both... at the same time?
      Kelso (jaw dropping): Is that legal?

    • Kelso: My friend once, he had this really big zit, and he tried to pop it, and all the pus went into his brain, and it killed him.
      Donna: Really Kelso? What friend?
      Kelso: You didn't know him.
      Donna: That's 'cause he doesn't exist.
      Kelso: 'Cause he's dead now!

    • Fez: My name is (the school bell rings for a couple of seconds, without hearing his name.)
      Hyde: Okay, I'm not gonna remember that.
      Kelso: I know! Let's call him Captain Poo Face!

    • (when the guys first meet Fez)
      Hyde (to Fez): Look man, if those jocks try to do this to you again, just come find me.
      Fez: Thanks. You're my best friend. Let's hold hands.

    • Hyde: Hey. Speaking of boobs, Forman's growing one out of his forehead.

      Fez: Oh, hello.
      Hyde: Who the hell are you?
      Fez: I'm the new foreign exchange student. The football team asked me if I wanna to hang out. I shouldn't have said yes. I can't feel my legs.

    • (at age 7)
      Eric: Okay, Steven.
      Hyde: And it's Hyde.
      Eric: Thanks Hyde. Hey, wouldn't it be funny if my last name was Seek? You know, Hide and Seek?
      Hyde: That's stupid. And you owe me a quarter.

    • Kelso: My quote's gonna be "What a long, strange trip it's been." Yeah, that's freaky profound.
      Eric: Kelso, every lamo-hippie in history of time has used that quote.
      Kelso: Well, yeah. That's 'cause it's good.

    • Hyde (aged 13): Hey man, if you don't get caught, everything's legal.

    • Eric: I'm a man, I'm zitless, hear me roar!

      I Dream Of Jeannie was a half-hour sitcom which began in the mid-60s, starring Barbara Eden as Jeannie, a scantily-clad genie who served her master, but usually ended up making things worse, like turning his boss into a monkey.

      Bewitched was a half-hour sitcom which also began in the mid-60s, starring Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stevens, a witch who tried not to use her witchcraft, but occasionally did use it to help her husband.
