Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • 426

    This is one of those episodes that you probably do not appreciate initially, but after repeated viewings you start to see the true genius behind it. When ever Fez and Big Rhonda have an interesting storyline then you know you are in for a good episode.

    Luke Wilson's performance as Casey Kelso really helped revitalize this show and in some ways save it. That 70's Show did not need this recurring character, but he certainly led to some highly enjoyable moments in the show's eight season history. Memorable episode, quoteworthy episode, go out of your way to watch this one.moreless
  • Eric confronts Casey...

    This episode is so sad when Eric confronts Casey & he reveals what a slime ball he is to Eric & Donna is helpless! Well I guess it makes up in the season finale, I like the B plot, the end of Kelso & Jackie's relationship, now Kelso is breaking up with her. I love the fantasy with them at the ring trying to punch each other, that was hilarious. I also liked how Casey was completely rubbing in his face that he has Donna at the barbecue. It sucks that Big Rhonda broke up with Fez, they had something special. Oh well.moreless
  • Ah, how influential Cosmo is...

    This episode is a good leadup to the season 4 finale with Kelso and Jackie breaking up again, this time because Kelso has a revelation about what the guys have been telling him for years... that Jackie puts him down an awful lot for someone she supposedly loves, and Eric's jealousy of Casey going into overload when he befriends everyone.

    This episode is very funny, with Casey's advice to Fez blowing up in his face, and him getting dumped by the girl he for some reason loved, Big Rhonda, and Kitty being sucked in by his handsomeness aswell as Kelso's advice to Eric which was inspired by Cosmo.

    Overall, this episode is great as we see the small changes in Donna's character that will be enlarged in the next episode aswell as providing quite a few funny and dramatic moments.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Eric: If Donna loves Casey and not me, then, I mean, I guess it's over.
      Kelso: Forman, you can't give up. Okay, look. Who knows what's gonna happen with me and Jackie. But what you and Donna had...that was, like, real. And I'm telling you, as his brother, look, Casey is bad news. He's either gonna get bored and split, or something worse is gonna happen. So, you gotta do something.
      Eric: Hey, since when did you get all serious?
      Kelso: I've been reading Cosmo. It's very educational. I never realized how much plumbing girls had down there. There's this diagram, and it's like a map of Six Flags.

    • Fez: Good. Because thanks to [Casey]'s stupid advice, Rhonda dumped me. I tried to steal third but she blocked me... and choked me. Now there's no more baseball for Fez, back to handball.

    • Kitty: Guess what, boys? I entered the "Big Wiener" contest at the Piggly Wiggly, and I won a year's supply of hot dogs. I'm a wiener winner!

    • Donna: Well, I like [Casey]. We're together and if you can't deal with that, you can just go to hell!
      Hyde: Hey, that's not barbeque language, young lady.

    • Fez: I even said "Please". Magic word, my ass.

    • Kelso: I still can't get over you cheating on me and I need to hear you apologize again. And maybe this time you should cry or give me money.
      Jackie: No Michael I am not going to beg for forgiveness. I didn't make you do that when you cheated.
      Kelso: That is totally different. When guys cheat it's because they need some hot action but when girls cheat it's way worse because girls don't even like sex.
      Jackie: We do too.
      Kelso: Then why aren't we doing it now?
      Jackie: Because I don't want to do it right now.
      Kelso: I do. Point made. Thank you.

    • Kelso: ...like last night Rocky was on. And I was thinking I'm like Rocky and Jackie's Apollo Creed. And she bashed in my face when she kissed that guy. At least Rocky wins in the end.
      Hyde: Kelso, Rocky loses.
      Kelso: Oh yeah, well why's he jumping around all happy?
      Fez: Because he went the distance, fool.
      Eric: He loses the fight, but he wins in life.
      Kelso: Who wants to watch a movie with a message like that?

  • NOTES (1)


    • Eric: Donna has only seen Casey around his smelly, tatooed, Molly Hatchet loving friends.

      Molly Hatchet is an American Southern rock band from the late 1970s.

    • Hyde: Hey Forman, I have an idea. Set up a wacky system of ropes and pullies, and when Casey gets here, drop an anvil on his head.
      Fez: Because that's what Daffy does.
      Eric: Yeah, I got that.

      Hyde and Fez are referring to Daffy Duck from the Looney Tunes. Daffy tries to injure various other characters in a very indirect manner, such as dropping an anvil on their heads, and he always fails. Eric gets it because he knows he's using indirect methods to break up Donna and Casey, and it's not working.

    • Title: Everybody Loves Casey
      The title of this episode is a referance to the sitcom, "Everybody Loves Raymond".

    • Kelso: ...like last night Rocky was on. And I was thinking I'm like Rocky and Jackie's Apollo Creed. And she bashed in my face when she kissed that guy. At least Rocky wins in the end.

      This is a reference to the 1976 film Rocky starring Sylvester Stallone. The film's theme music can also be heard in this episode.
