    what i liked- red and kitty being high (midge and bob were high but surprisingly, not really that entertaining whilst being so), fez kissing jackie and jackie telling donna that it was the best kiss of her life, the scene where eric and hyde scold red after selling the vista cruiser, hude's 'lesson' being that he can get away with anything, amongst other things.

    good episode. It was really funny to see Red and Kitty high. The plots weren't very interesting, but the reason my score is perfect is because this episode is just really funny. Fans should like it, I imagine. A+ episode.moreless

    In this episode, Eric and family are having a garage sale. Eric, despises his life-line, has not decided to go with Donna to see. Hyde, however, plans to make some browinies (HIGH brownies). But, when Red and the other grown ups eat them, things get tricky, as he sells Eric's car. OOHH!



    Meanwhile, Fez has thought Jackie has loved him, so, he tries planting one on her, which leads to Kelso punching him (I thought Fez's freeze powers was awesome) Eventually, this happens, that happns, and blah blah blah, eric has the Vista Cruiser back.



    I actually love this episode. This, I could recite through my sleep. hee. Thanks.moreless
  • Season 2 Premiere

    9.5
    Definitely an overrated episode of That 70s Show, the best episode ever? I don't think so, but nonetheless this was a really hilarious and memorable episode. There's a first time for everything, Eric & Donna's parents get high accidentally. This was one of the first sitcoms that have ever had a situation like this, getting high on weed brownies. This is repeated on many sitcoms later on, but I think this episode changed television to be honest, that's why it's probably known to be one of the best episodes of That 70s Show.



    Hilarious all the way through from Red selling the vista cruiser to all the parents in the circle, this was a hysterical episode. Fez kissing Jackie was also very funny, Jackie's first signs that she might like him is definite development and it was a nice tie in with Eric & Donna in the end.



    A very special episode of That 70s Show that was hysterical, memorable, eventful and just an amazing way to kick off season 2.moreless

  • The Best Episode EVER!

    Red and Kitty hold a Garage Sale to get some money so they can support the Forman family. Kelso, Jackie, Donna and Fez goes to the Movies, that's when Fez kisses Jackie because he thought Jackie was flirting with him. Hyde makes "Special" brownies for the Garage Sale, even though Eric asks him not to.

    Hyde leaves some special brownies in the oven accidently, and Kitty pulls them out from the oven and gives them to Bob, Midge, Red and Herself. Red, Kitty, Bob and Midge get High!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The next scene is Kitty, Red, Bob and Midge in a circle. Where Red accidentely sells the Vista Cruiser. So, Red, Hyde and Eric go to get it back, even though it takes them a while to get it out of Red. Jackie then Says to Donna that the Kiss with Fez is the Best she's ever had. Kelso goes to Fez and straightens things out and Eric gets his car back.

    The credits are Red and Kitty eating a whole table full of food, until Red says that Hot Dogs would be great for dessert.moreless

    • Fez: Oh Kelso, I am sorry your girlfriend gives me action in the pants.
      Kelso: Oh no, she doesn't.
      Fez: Yes she does. She came up to me, and she said I was funny.
      Kelso: Fez, sometimes when a girl says you're funny, it just means that you're funny.

    • Eric: Guess what buddy, there's a lesson in all of this. You know what that lesson is?
      Hyde: The lesson is...
      Eric (interrupting): Hyde why don't I just tell you what the lesson is? You dance with Mary Jane, you get your toes stepped on. That's right! Consequences my friend. Yeah, consequences. Now my car's gone, and Red's high as a kite.

    • Eric: Dad, you sold my car? How could you? Just what in the hell were you thinking?!
      Red (while high): I thought I was helping because you're always saying how you need money.
      Eric: For gas! For the car!

    • (Red and Kitty are both high)
      Red: I am glad the plant is closing. It frees me up to do my own thing.
      Kitty (laughing): You said do my own thing!

    • Eric: Hey, don't change the subject. You can't make "special" brownies in my parents' kitchen.
      Hyde: Oh, no! I already made 'em! If only you had warned me sooner.
      Eric: I'm serious.

      Red: I don't know, but I remembered! (turns to go upstairs)

    • Red: Piece of crap?! That's a Vista Cruiser. You could literally... cruise, the vistas.

  • NOTES (4)

    • Starting with this episode, the scene transitions changed from essentially seventies-themed transitions (with smilies, flowers, singing pictures of famous people and, rarely, main characters in that context) or simple effects of burned film or ripped paper, to scenes with the main characters dancing, jumping or posing in front of fancy backgrounds. The transitions remained that way until the end of the series.

    • The theme song, which used to be performed by Todd Griffin in season 1, is now performed by Cheap Trick.

    • Lynsey Bartilson, the girl who played Tammy Sue, reappears later in the episode "Hyde Gets The Girl" as one of the stream of girls Hyde interviews. She also starred on the show Grounded for Life, which Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Wilmer Valderrama all guest starred on.

    • This episode has new opening credits. Lisa Robin Kelly now becomes a regular cast member as Laurie, and the adults are now seen singing in the Vista Cruiser along with the teenagers (except Kurtwood Smith as Red, who drives but doesn't sing.)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Hyde: Do you now or have you ever had any association with the Point Place Police Department?

      This is an allusion to Senator Joe McCarthy's interrogation of supposed Communists during the 1950's who he would ask, "Do you now or have you ever had any association with the Communist Party?" Since Hyde is clearly anti-establishment, he references "The Man" in his disclaimer when serving special brownies.
