  • Quotes

    • Eric: I'm sorry Kelso... Because I hear there's this clinic in Madison that will pay you for your manly donations.
      Kelso: Manly donations? Ooh I can do that, I'm pretty good at that.

    • Red: Thanks son... I love you.
      Eric: W-What did you say?
      Red: I said, I love you.

    • Kelso: Good news! my boys are back in friendly hands.
      Donna: Ironically, that's just where they started their journey.

    • Nurse Ruth: I'm sorry miss, but I can't give it to you. The donor himself is the only one who has legal rights over this specimen.
      Jackie: Fine! Michael, you get them. You're the only one who has rights over your special men.

    • (Kitty and Eric are eating breakfast)
      Eric: Mom, was dad abducted by aliens and replaced by an identical creature programmed to love?
      Kitty: Honey, this is breakfast. Don't ask me things.
      Eric: He told me he loved me.
      Kitty: Your father? No!

    • Jackie: Oh, that's okay. Kelsos never call. They're like dogs. They're cute, but they can't work a phone.

    • Casey: I just got this thing, where a lot of times I just don't show up. I don't know what to do about it.
      Donna: How about showing up?
      Casey: I guess I can give that a shot .
      Donna: So, this will never happen again?
      Casey: No, I'm pretty sure it wil happen again...

    • Fez: It's so good to have a girlfriend on Valentine's Day.
      Kelso: Yeah, it definitely increases your chances of getting your 'fun stuff' touched.
      Eric: Well, ...(looking at his crotch) sorry 'fun stuff!' Looks like it's just you and me this year. ...Unless... (looks at Donna)
      Donna (glancing at Eric's crotch): Sorry, 'fun stuff.'

    • (talking about saying 'I love you')
      Red: Alright, stop right there. There are only a few times in life when it's acceptable for a man to use that phrase. When he's drunk, when he's dying, or when he's in big trouble and that's the only way out. Which usually means he's drunk.
