Aired Sunday 8:00 PM Sep 24, 2002 on FOX



  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Eric says that his birthday is in March. This is impossible; in the first episode, That 70s Pilot, it is May, 1976. The next episode, Eric's Birthday, is Eric's 17th birthday. They couldn't have gone 10 months into the future in the span of one episode; the writers obviously made a mistake on when Eric's birthday is.

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Baby Hold On (1977) by Eddie Money;
      Imaginary Lover (1976) by Atlanta Rhythm Section;
      Dancing Queen (1977) by ABBA;
      Only the Good Die Young (1977) by Billy Joel;
      The Hallelujah Chorus (from Handel's Messiah) (1741).

    • Hyde and Jackie put "Abba's Greatest Hits" on the turntable and dance to "Dancing Queen". "Abba's Greatest Hits", released in 1976, did not contain "Dancing Queen" (the song was originally released on "Arrival" in 1977).

  • Quotes

    • Hyde (voice over explaining how he and Jackie got together): It was obvious she wanted me.
      (in the recollection)
      Jackie: I want you.
      Hyde: It's obvious.

    • Eric: How was your first day?
      Donna: Grim. This nun totally spanked me with a ruler.
      Fez: Yet another reason I wish I was a ruler.

    • Jackie: Okay, so, um... what exactly did you see?
      Eric: Hands, tongues, yours, [Hyde]'s... It was horrible!
      Donna: You were like Siamese twins, joined at the beard.

    • Bob: She's going to that school and that's final.
      Eric: Ok, fine. But know this, I'm prepared to fight this with every fiber of my being.
      (Donna walks in, wearing her school uniform)
      Eric: On the other hand, you can't put a price on a good education.

    • (Eric and Donna are kissing)
      Kelso: Hey! You two quit it, ok? This circle is sacred, you don't do anything in here that you wouldn't do in a church... no wait, in a cemetery... no wait, in a teacher's lounge... Man, I've done it everywhere.

    • (Fez almost catches Hyde making out with Jackie)
      Fez: Wait a second. You two look sweaty and guilty. Have you been eating my candy?
      Jackie: What candy?
      Fez: I didn't say candy. And I certainly don't have any candy hidden in the garage. I will be in the garage.

    • Eric: So, uh… so how's that uniform workin' out for you? (Donna smacks Eric) Do you... do... do you feel like a good girl that… just can't help being bad? Be bad, Donna. (whispers) I won't tell.

    • Eric: Look, Dad, I need my car! Don't you remember when you were in high school? I... I bet you had some good times, drivin' around senior year with your friends.
      Red: My senior year I was drivin' a gunboat around Okinawa. And if you count the Japanese snipers as my friends… then, yes, I had some good times.

    • Jackie: He's not my boyfriend!
      Hyde: I'm not her boyfriend! ...They just don't get it.
      Jackie: No, why would they? Let's go, baby.

    • Jackie: I just remembered that I have to go to the mall because they're having this big Monday Madness Sale.
      Donna: Jackie, it's Tuesday
      Jackie: See? Total madness!

    • Jackie: Okay, this is my Michael box. I saved everything that loser ever gave me. (opens it and pulls out a rubber chicken) Hmm. One-year anniversary. ...What a moron. (throws the chicken in the trash, followed by a few other things)

    • Hyde: You know what your problem is? You're really cute, so no one ever told you to shut your pie hole.
      Jackie: You... you think I'm cute?
      Hyde: Shut your pie hole!
      (they begin making out again)

    • Red: Of all the dumbass stunts you kids ever pulled, this little California adventure takes the dumbass cake!

    • Donna: Eric, we're never gonna to see each other.
      Eric: Yeah, I know, and I can't even drive you to school. And we can forget about any lunchtime hokey-pokey. That's what it's all about.

    • Kitty: We are very disappointed in you, Eric. Even though going to California to rescue Donna is one of the most romantic things I have ever heard of.
      Bob: That's true. If he had gone by horse, they would have made it a movie.

    • Red: Now, Eric, hand over the keys to the Vista Cruiser.
      Eric: What? Dad, no. The Cruiser's my Bat-Mobile. Without it, I'm just a guy in a silly outfit.
      Red: Now, Eric.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Kelso: Here's what I don't get about Fantasy Island... you know when you get off the plane, and you see Mr. Roarke and that little kid in the white suit?

      Fantasy Island was a tv show that aired from 1978 to 1984. It was about an island resort where all your fantasies happened. The island was run by Mr. Roarke and his assistant, Tattoo. Tattoo was a Little Person, not a little kid.

    • Eric: Because you're breakin' up the band, Yoko!

      Yoko Ono had an affair with John Lennon of The Beatles. John and Yoko's relationship is often cited as one of the reasons why the band broke up.
