    Definitely one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. We got some great dynamics within the entire cast. There was not one flaw, I found myself laughing all the way through. For the most part, I loved the shocking ending that was Caroline's freakout. I for one really enjoyed the Caroline arc, so this was definitely a stepping stone in the story line.



    I really have to commend Allison Munn, she did a fantastic job with her character here. It's sad to see her talent wasted on What I Like About You, because here, she clearly proved herself to be better than just a side character. Eric's worries about him & Donna was definitely a foreshadowing to what happens at the end of the season. Debra Jo Rupp did a fantastic job as usual. The scene in which she found out that everyone left their duties to attend other things was hysterical. We also got a bit of a cliffhanger in the end. Caroline stalking Fez? Definitely something worth tuning in too especially since Fez & Donna are pretending to date. Classic episode of the series.moreless
  • Kitty drags Red, Eric, Hyde and Kelso to a church Fundraiser.

    9.7
    Kitty goes to a 'God's magic circle' fundraiser for the church, assigning Eric on the cakewalk-where he makes a discovery about what married life with Donna could be like. She puts Hyde and Kelso on Bingo, where they rig it so they win Rock 'em Sock 'em robots. She also puts Red on the raffle, where he gives up to play Craps (or as Pastor Dave says='Cripes'). Kitty is upset about how she is now in 'Satan's evil square'. Pastor Dave(who is my favourite recurring character) also makes his second appearance in the show, still as daggy as ever. Fez's girlfriend Caroline is even crazier than ever, writing Fezs name all over her room and threatening to kill Donna and Jackie if they ever touch him. In the end Fez braks up with her, using the excuse that he and Donna are in love.She tells him she'll be watching him, which comes up in the next episode, 'Fez dates Donna'.

    A good episode, like most of Season 3.moreless
  • Church Fundraiser

    9.8
    Caroline seems to get crazier every episode, this time threatening Jackie and Donna and writing Fez’s name over every inch of her wall. Fez finally realises her true insanity and musters up enough courage to break up with her, Caroline snapping back that she’d be watching him and it wasn’t over (Fez: Phew, I’m glad that’s over).



    This is only the second episode to feature Pastor Dave, the previous one being in season two, which had the same title without the “s”, and once again he is the pastor that actually believes what he says is cool to kids today (and by today, I mean 1977). Hyde and Kelso cheating in Bingo was hilarious as was Red playing craps or “cripes” as the church calls it. Eric realising that if he married Donna, he could end up like the horrible couple in the cakewalk was entertaining but couldn’t compare to the other outrageously amusing plots that really make this episode a classic.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • (Jackie has just asked Caroline if Fez is a good kisser)
      Donna: She's only asking because when she kissed him, he did this thing with his tongue.

      Fez kissed Jackie in the second season episode Garage Sale. Jackie described the "thing with his tongue" by saying it was like he was rolling his Rs when he speaks... but in her mouth.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Jackie: You guys are such a cute couple!
      Donna: I know. I really like Caroline.
      Jackie: Me too. She's nice!
      Hyde: For a psycho.
      Fez: Hyde! Take that back!
      Hyde: (pretends he's blowing up a balloon and then letting the air out to make a hissing sound) Ssss-psycho.

    • Kitty: Okay, now, I have work assignments for everyone. Red, you're selling raffle tickets.
      Red: I'm your man.
      Kitty: And don't yell at the customers.
      Red: I'm ...kind of your man.
      Kitty: And smile.
      Red: You need another man.

    • Caroline: So, what does Cosmo say about me? I'm a Gemini.
      Donna: Uhh, let's see. Okay. The twins - two people trapped in one body. So you're like... split personality.
      Caroline: If you ever say that again, I'll kill you! (Donna and Jackie stare at her) I'm just kidding! You guys, I'm psycho, remember? Woo hoo!
      Donna: Wow, that was, uh, that was really good. I almost wet myself.

    • (at the bingo table)
      Hyde: Besides, what old lady wants Rock'em, Sock'em Robots, or Pop Rocks, or super balls?
      Kelso: Yeah! Yeah, if you give the elderly Pop Rocks, they could get all foamy and stroke out!

    • Donna: Who ate the last donut?
      Eric: (quietly) I did.
      Donna: Son of a bitch!
      Eric: You ate the first eleven!
      Donna: Oh, shut up!
      Eric: No, I won't! I weigh 80 pounds! Look at you... you know why I'm bald? My body is eating its own hair!

    • Caroline: I just want to say that you will never be as happy as you were with me! Ever. And until you realize that, I'll be seeing you. And by 'I'll be seeing you' I mean that I'll be watching you. But you won't know it, except I just told you, so you do know it. Anyway, this isn't over!

    • (trying to break up with Caroline)
      Fez: Umm...because...Donna and I are in love!!
      Caroline: WHAT?!
      Donna: Oh my GOD!!
      Jackie: Eeeewwww!!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Pastor Dave: You kids buy a raffle ticket? Third prize is a rock 'n roll record. John Denver's Greatest Hits. He fills up your senses!

      Pastor Dave once again fails when trying to be cool with the gang; John Denver was a folk/country singer, not rock 'n roll. Pastor Dave, when he says, "he fills up your senses" is alluding to the John Denver song Annie's Song, which begins, "You fill up my senses, like a night in the forest..."

    • (Red is at the craps table, and winning)
      Kitty: Hey, Diamond Jim, come here.

      Kitty calls Red "Diamond Jim", referring to the American financier, Diamond Jim Brady (1856 - 1917), who made his fortune as a salesman for a railroad company. He lived life to the fullest, enjoying food, women, jewels (especially diamonds) and gambling.

    • Red: Eric, if your mother wants you and Archie and Jughead here to help her, then you're going to help her.
      Hyde: (to Kelso) You're Jughead.
      Kelso: You're Jughead!

      Red refers to Hyde and Kelso as Archie and Jughead, alluding to the comic book characters from the popular Archie series that began in the early 40s. Archie was the well-meaning, average looking redheaded one; Jughead was the odd-looking, not quite-so-bright food obsessed one.

    • Caroline: Bazooka Joe wanted to see time fly, so Zena threw a clock out the window.

      Bazooka Joe was a character in a comic strip; Zena was his girlfriend. The comic strip came wrapped around Bazooka bubble gum, made by the TOPPS Company.

    • Hyde: Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.

      This was the advertising slogan for Peter Paul chocolate bars Almond Joy and Mounds.
