    An under appreciated episode of That 70s Show. This episode was absolutely hilarious and it helped the plot out in ways, not to mention it was wildly intriguing. Was anyone else at the edge of their seat, trying to find out if Eric was going to get caught or not? I know I was, and this episode ended really good with a great scene between Topher Grace and Kurtwood Smith. Surprisingly, Eric wasn't the one that stole the show here, it was Jackie & Donna. I found myself laughing at most of their scenes, and they just have a hilarious dynamic together, add Kelso in to the mix, and you've got yourself a great plot. I have to admit, this plot wasn't as intriguing, but it was just as funny, if not funnier.

    Kitty not being able to go to the reunion was a bit of a letdown, I envisioned some great scenes with Kitty seeing people from high school, we did still get some funny one liners with Kitty losing her vision. A perfect episode of That 70s Show, hilarious from start to finish.moreless
  • Eric takes Red's car for a joyride

    This episode is a great example of what that 70's show is about, Eric planning a rebellion so perfectly that he won't get caught, screwing it up but still managing to pull it off but then one detail is missed and he's caught with a lot of funny moments along the way.

    However, my favourite plot is Kelso messing with Casey while he's gone and "dreaming" about Donna, with a lot of hilarious moments.

    Red teasing Kitty about needing glasses was pretty funny aswell, though that miniplot seemed to be put in so that the cliched arents coming home early plot could be used.

    Overall, this episode is one that's structure has been done in other shows, but that doesn't mean the episode isn't hilarious.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Eric: Oh my God, what have I done?
      Hyde: Well, you're using your dad's dream car to get with a chick who would otherwise never date you.
      Eric: Well when you put it like that, it just sounds right.

    • Leslie: Eric, I'm starting to think I might like you.
      Eric: Really?
      Leslie: I'm not sure though. I think I have to drive the car some more.
      Eric: Oh. Well, I'm starting to think I might let you drive the car.
      Leslie: Really?
      Eric: I'm not sure though. I think we might have to make out some more.

    • Hyde: Forman, I can't believe you're actually gonna take out Red's Corvette.
      Fez: Yeah, and I can't believe you're wearing brown shoes with a black belt. That's just tacky.

    • Leslie: So, what kind of engine is it in this thing.
      Eric (pretending he knows about car engines): Oh, it's a... it's a multi... piston... 200. That's ah... twice as powerful as the.... 100.

    • Leslie: Hey! It's Uh-bla.
      Eric: Yeah, um... I'm going by Eric now.
      Jackie: She doesn't care what your name is, Eric. She's a cheerleader.

    • Fez: Oh Leslie Cannon, nicknamed "the Cannon". Why? Because she always shoots Eric down.
      Hyde: Man, you were so in love with her. Remember the 7th grade, when she asked your name, you got all panicky and said: "Uh.... bla...."
      Kelso: Yeah, and then she called you "Uh-bla" for, like, the next 2 years. That was awesome.

    • Kitty: I don't understand, the invitation says "the 29th."
      Red: Kitty, that says "the 23rd." I have been telling you for months that you need glasses. You know, one of these days you're gonna wander off and fall into a hole!
      Kitty: What hole? Where are these holes?
      Red: They're everywhere. You just can't see them 'cause you need glasses!

    • (Donna and Jackie sneak into Casey's room)
      Kelso: Am I dreaming?
      Jackie: Yes, Micheal.
      Kelso: Are we gonna do it?
      Jackie: Yes, Micheal.
      Kelso: Okay. Donna first.

    • Red: A fire is no excuse for a joyride!

    • (after turning on the radio and realizing that Eric drove the car)
      Eric: And I'm grounded.
      Red: For a month! Why did you do it?
      Eric: To impress this ... cheerleader...
      Red: No kidding? Well, make it 2 weeks. So ah, you gonna see her again?
      Eric: Well, can I have the car again?
      Red: Oh.... She's THAT girl. I know that girl. (pause) Stay away from that girl!
