  • Fez and the playboys.

    Now we know what Hyde's fear is, working! A step up from other episodes, still an above average episode but I'd like to say it was well written, the aftermath of Hyde getting the job at his father's place. And he goes nuts, I would to, that place is like a prison cell. Anyways Fez's storyline about the playboys was hysterical! That shows how much a pervert he is. The C plot, Kitty & the Tai Chi! Poor Schotzie, just as he returns, a Buddha falls on him. That was pretty funny. Another weak plot of Eric's, now all of a sudden he wants to draw! But of course doesn't get excepted, that's the most useless plot ever. Anyways the other plots made up for it, an above average episode.moreless
  • Hyde starts work and Fez overdoses on his habit.

    Hyde seems to be the central character of the season so far, and while that isn't necessarily a bad thing, Eric seems to be very marginalised. Regardless, the episode was very funny, with Hyde trying out the office life, with sales records, rather than musical, and the plot was quite good, as all office employees seemed suicidal.

    Fez's porn was pretty funny, while over the top, and was a good subplot to the other crazy plots that follow Tai Chi, attempted artist and weirdest of all, Hyde working.

    The episode was very funny, and absurd, which makes it a great one in any fan's eyes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Takin' Care of Business (1973) by Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

    • Out in the yard when Schotzi is barking, his mouth isn't even moving.

    • At various times in Hyde's office, you can see that the wall left of the door (on the left side of the screen) ends early and you can see the hallway through it. Notably this occurs when Hyde makes the comment about it being good there's no window so he can't jump out and also during the "Taking Care of Business" montage.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Red: Eric, I got a job for you. Go grab some cement and secure that 'Bob' statue.
      Eric: Okay, if that's a job, then how much does that pay?
      Red: It pays my foot not going in your ass.
      Eric: So it's on credit then?

    • Eric: Mom, maybe you should stop worrying about everyone else so much and start thinking about yourself. Maybe you should find something to enrich your life. Oh, may I suggest the teachings of the Jedi?
      Red: And may I suggest the footing of your ass?

    • Fez: Look! A robot!
      (Kelso turns around and Fez runs away)
      Eric: Man, you fall for that every time!
      Kelso: Yeah? Well one day, there's gonna be a robot. And all you suckers are gonna miss it!

    • Donna: Fez, are you okay? I haven't seen you look this awful since you found out Candy Land's not a real country!

    • Eric: Look, Fez. There's a reason that these magazines only come once a month... you have to pace yourself. Do something else besides look at pornography.
      Fez: What kind of life is that?

    • (after seeing Fez lying on the couch with Playboys)
      Eric: We're too late. He suffered a massive horny attack.

    • Kitty: If this tai chi is half as good as a Mai Tai, I'm sure I'm going to love it!

    • Kitty: I just love my new buddy.
      Donna: Y'know, I think it's called a Buddha.
      Kitty: No, that is not even a word. Next you will tell me butter is called boodder.

  • NOTES (1)


    • (about his job at W.B.'s record company)
      Hyde: Actually, I'm hoping to get to listen to the records and pick which ones the stores carry... in which case, bye-bye, Andy Gibb!

      Andy Gibb (1958 - 1988) was the youngest of the Gibb brothers; his older brothers formed The Bee Gees, but Andy was also a singer and had quite a few pop hits that were popular with young girls in the '70s.

    • (Eric is drawing a cartoon of Sanchez the Turtle, and is chuckling at how good he is)
      Eric: Watch your back, Doonesbury!

      Doonesbury is a long-running comic strip drawn by Garry Trudeau. It began running in city newspapers in October, 1970, and is highly political.
