|Yeah?! If we got rid of Jackie, who would all of the guys in the group date? Ha! Ha! I like Jackie, but I just had to say it.|
You can't make fun of Fez for being virtually story-less without mentioning that Kelso too had very little to do with the overall plot of the show. And I think Jackie needs to stay, if only because she's the only character who really changes. Sure, the others move away and dye their hair and learn better English over time, but she's the only one whose personality actually evolves.
But since the question says that it's 1998, this hasn't actually happened yet, so I probably would take away Jackie, because at the time she was really only a part of the group because she was dating Kelso.

Yeah, but of the two of them, Kelso was the better character - funnier too. And was the link to get Jackie in. I'm sticking with my original statement.
