Episode Summary

EDIT
Eric's Buddy
AIRED:
Eric has a new friend and Steven and Kelso can't stand it. Steven doesn't like him because he's rich and Eric doesn't give him a ride home anymore because Buddy has a Trans Am. Kelso, on the other hand, seems like a worried spouse. Eric starts to feel uncomfortable around him however when Buddy makes a move on him. Buddy apparently thought that Eric was also gay. And Red makes his first sale.moreless

    • Donna (to Hyde and Kelso): Shaggy, Scooby, we've got company.

      Eric: No, Fez, they're not getting off the island.
      Fez: But they have a coconut radio. What could go wrong?

      This refers to Gilligan's Island, a half-hour weekly sitcom that ran from 1964 to 1967; the characters were always devising wacky ways, many of which involved coconuts, to get off the island they were stranded on.

      This refers to the weekly, half-hour TV show Lassie which ran from 1954 to 1973; Lassie was a dog who always saved the day and Timmy was one of his owners (from 1957 to 1964).
