    This episode not only contained one of the most memorable scenes in this series' eight year run, but it was one of the funniest of the entire season. From Donna finding out Kelso stole her address rock to everyone's reaction times to the whole "I Love You" fiasco. Red tells Eric he loves him, and he is trying to find a way to say it back. This plot stole the show for me here. The ending with everything slowing down as Eric said I love you and Kitty dropping the jello was just an amazing scene. I guarantee you will laugh at that scene. Red's reaction was absolutely priceless and I commend Kurtwood Smith here.

    Casey is not my favorite character but the resemblance between Luke Wilson and Ashton Kutcher is uncanny in this episode, Luke Wilson is really perfect for this part with his care free attitude and his resemblance to his on screen brother. Kelso selling his "special men" was absolutely hysterical.

    We got some great one liners her from the whole cast from Jackie calling specimen, "special men" to everyone making fun of Kelso and the references back to his "job." Just a hysterical episode all around and will remain one of the funniest of the season. Great episode.
  • Kelso sells his "special men" to buy Jackie a valentines gift

    This episode is one of the funniest in the series, three out of four plots being perfect, and the other being a great one all the same.

    Fez eating his gift for Big Rhonda, proving his love of candy is just a bit bigger than his love of Rhonda, Red being hopped up on dentist drugs and telling Eric that he loves him, sending Eric into a spiral of confusion, and the funniest, Kelso selling his love nectar, are all brilliant plots with hilarious moments, especially regarding the entendres and puns the guys use and the slow motion embarrassing moment between Eric, Kitty and Red.

    Donna and Casey's plot was much smaller than the two main ones and the subplot but it was still pretty entertaining with Donna forgiving Casey for no real reason and Casey not showing up for another no good reason, proving the guys right but it didn't really have much of an impact other than seeing a different side of Donna, giddy and such.

    Overall, Fez, Eric and Kelso's plots make this episode a must see, with Donna's C story being a little bonus.
  • Best episode EVER!!! Containing my all time favorite 70's show scene!

    Although the scenes with Kelso donating his 'little soldiers' were more heavily laden with a series of hilarious and classic one liners("roll up my sleeves, get a little sweaty and earn some extra cash" and "oh, to be a working stiff" are some of my favorites), this was not the storyline with my favorite scene.

    That honor goes to the infamous slow motion 'He Was Drugged' scene:

    Red tells Eric he loves him, and we eventually find out that the dentist doped him with knockout juice to repair a cavity, but before Kitty can warn Eric, he says it back to a 'sober' Red, and everything from Kitty's "NOOO!!!" to the final part where Red says "Go to your room" is non stop hilarity. The jello falling to the floor, the priceless facial expressions, the realization, everything was just perfect, I don't think I ever laughed so loud and hard in my life.

    If you're a long time 70's Show fan, watch this episode, because the more you know of the 4 years of history that precede it, the more the scene will just click.

    Also, this episode highlights, IMO, Fez's peak moment of candy addiction as he continuously eats the valentine chocolates that he's supposed to give to big Rhonda, it's not quite up there with his porn addiction episode in season 7, but it's still solid laughs.

    So there you have it, an A plot with numerous one line home runs and a B plot with an infamous slow motion scene make this my favorite episode in 70's show history. Although I'm sure episodes such as the Grage Sale and Water Tower will be the sympathetic favorites (Although both great episodes mind you) this will always be a sentimental fave of mine.
