Jackie Bags Hyde
It’s Veteran’s Day and the Formans are getting ready for their annual barbeque after the town parade. Trouble is that Bob, who was only in the National Guard and never saw any action, has inexplicably decided to throw his own barbeque in competition with the Formans. Hyde tells Jackie point blank that he’s not interested, inspiring her to bring a date to the Formans’ to make him jealous. This ploy causes Hyde to come to a horrifying realization about his true feelings for Jackie.moreless

  • The Formans and Pinciotti have their Veterans' Day barbeque competition

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". It was very funny and I was laughing the whole time. It was hilarious when Fez said "Does this smell like chocolate?". It was very funny when Red is angry that Bob is having his Veterans' Day barbeque because Red's ritual is that he has an annual Veterans' Day barbeque every Veterans' Day. The Forman family (Red, Kitty, Eric) vs. the Pinciotti family (Bob, Midge, Donna) Veterans' Day competition was very interesting and very funny to see. It was hilarious when Hyde punched the guy that Jackie dated to make Hyde jealous when the guy called Jackie "b**ch". It was funny when Kitty was sensing that Hyde likes Jackie. Hyde asking out Jackie on a date was very cool to see. It was very funny when Hyde was crying (he faked the crying though... haha). Hyde and Jackie on their first date was very cute to see in this episode. Donna told everyone that Bob had the barbeque because Bob was going bankrupt and the Forman family felt really bad but Eric got the idea that they bring the barbeque to the Pinciotti's house and Red apologized to Bob which gave Bob tears of joy (that part was funny). The very ending was also hilarious when Kelso and Fez were drunk and they see the pink horse. Overall, an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". 10/10moreless

    The writers have been hanging this over our head all season: Jackie and Hyde. This episode gave us a sense of conclusion to that story line. The group dynamic in this episode was flawless. Everything took place at the Forman Veterans Day barbecue. Everyone got to say something funny, even Laurie. Laurie is great as a supporting character, and even with one line, she can send you in to non stop laughter.

    Bob's business going down was essential to the plot, the way Midge broke it to Donna was hysterical! Fez & Kelso who were hardly in this episode, even had some lines to keep us laughing. The point is that even the smallest of characters are essential to the plot, that's why supporting characters are important.

    Donna and Bob going against Red & Eric in the competition of barbecues was hilarious, and an entertaining montage. This episode was also very eventful, Hyde takes Jackie out on a date when he thinks he may like her after punching out her date. They kiss, but they feel nothing. Definitely a sense of closure, and if anything, it made their bond stronger. All plots came together perfectly, and they were all funny. Amazing classic episode of That 70s Show.moreless

  • A great episode

    This episode is really good. Jackie and Hyde share their first kiss, and everyone (even Kitty) can see that Hyde likes Jackie. Red has his annual holiday (Veteran's Day) barbeque, and Bob also has one. It turns into a fierce competition, and Donna is mad when Eric takes Red's side in the argument, because Bob is having the barbeque only so he can be a big success just one more time before Bargain Bob's (the store that he owns) closes down for good since it is going out of business.

    What a PERFECT episode. It pretty much leads to the Jackie/Hyde relationship.

  • A Veterans Day Miracle! (and barbaque)

    In this episode, jackie tries to get Hyde to accompany her to the Formans bbq. But when he says no, she gets a new guy to take with her to the bbq named Chip. When Chip insults Jackie infront of Hyde, Hyde punches him and Jackie realizes that Hyde likes her and he was jealous. Then they go out on a date.

    While that was happening, we find out that Bob is going bankrupt, so he wants to have a bbq before everybody realizes hes a failure. But Red gets mad because he doesnt think that Bobs a veteran and he does the Veterans day bbq every year. So they compete to make each bbq the best.

    i love this episode because it hints that they may be some hooking up in the future and i love when Hyde talks to Mrs. Forman and he says "Mrs. Forman, if i like her.. shoot me" and she says "POW!" lol love that part.moreless
