Red and Eric go to visit Laurie at her new apartment, and they bring her a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. While Krispy Kreme was founded in 1937, it was primarily located in the southeast until the '90s when major national expansion began, and there would not have been franchises in Wisconsin during the '70s.
Red: Maybe I have been, uh, kind of a...
Kitty: A dumb-ass.
Red: I was going to say 'unreasonable'.
Kitty: Fine, fine. You're an unreasonable dumb-ass.
(after Kelso has denied that anything is going on between him and Laurie)
Jackie: Fine. I believe you, Michael. But know this: if you're not telling the truth, I will find out. 'Cause I'm smart, and you... aren't.
Eric: You know, Dad, it's not like [Laurie]'s hooking... or some other less bad example. I mean, she's just living with a guy, and it is the '70s now, right?
Red: What are you babbling about?
Eric: Well, maybe... maybe I just think you're being a little hard on her.
Red: Well, that's nice Eric. But right now I am too angry to pretend to give a crap about what you think!
Kitty: Red, it doesn't matter if people talk. Laurie is still a part of this family, which is why I invited her to dinner tonight.
Red: Oh, no, no, no, Kitty. I'm not ready for that.
Kitty: Oh, that's sweet. The way you say that like you have a choice.
(Red comes into the kitchen shouting about how the youth of today is a bunch of degenerates then storms out)
Kitty: Laurie's living with a boy.
Kitty: Just... just one boy, right?
Eric: Yeah, I think so.
Kitty: Well, now, see? It could've been worse.
Kelso: Well, you know, half the time, you act like you want me to get caught.
Hyde: Kelso, you're my friend. I don't want you to get caught, 'cause if you get caught, then my fun is over. Okay? So I'm just trying to prolong your suffering.
Kelso: Well, okay, that's a little better.
Hyde: All right. Friends for life, baby!
Donna: So Laurie's definitely moving out? And it's definitely over with her and Kelso?
Eric: Well, she is moving all the way across town. I mean, she is slutty, but... I mean, she hates to commute, so...
Red: I know Kitty, you think that she is all grown up, but there is still a lot that she doesn't know. I mean what if her place doesn't have a deadbolt? Or smoke-detector?
Kitty: Red, you don't have to baby her, she's twenty!
Red: You're never too old to burn to death in a fire!
Red: What's wrong? Everything's wrong. Damn kids today, they wouldn't know responsibility if it walked up and bit 'em in the ass!
Laurie: Oh, hey, Kelso, I almost forgot... found a t-shirt of yours when I was cleaning out my room. (she leaves)
Hyde: Say, how'd that get there?
Kelso: That's funny. No... This isn't even mine! Yeah, this must be Eric's shirt.
Jackie: Your mom sewed your name in it, Michael.
Kelso: Man, Eric's going to be pissed, huh? Yeah, 'cause, see, I borrowed Eric's shirt 'cause mine wasn't working right. And then my mom must've sewed my name in it.
Jackie: Hmm, I don't know, Michael...
Kelso: What, do you think I'm lying? Jackie, if I were lying I'd come up with a lot better lie than that.
Hyde: Yeah, you'd think so.
(in the circle, Hyde is teaching Kelso how to act innocent)
Hyde: Let's practice. So, did you fool around with Laurie?
Kelso: You know I did!
Hyde: Dumb-ass! No, man! Complete denial. Watergate. Learn.
Hyde refers to 'Watergate'; this is the name of a Washington hotel that was home to the Democratic National Committee that President Richard M. Nixon had people break in to in order to place and maintain wiretaps. When the news of the scandal broke, President Nixon and many others denied involvement in the break in as well as any knowledge of the wiretaps. Tapes were eventually discovered that revealed the lies of the people involved, and lead to President Nixon's August 9, 1974 resignation. However, for two full years, Nixon had denied everything.
Laurie: Well, Mom, if you already knew, then why didn't you tell Dad? Then we wouldn't be in this mess!
Kitty: Oh, good God! Rosemary had a better baby than me!
The "Rosemary" that Kitty is referring to is the title character of the book Rosemary's Baby, written by Ira Levinson in 1967 and made into a movie the following year, starring Mia Farrow as Rosemary. In the book and movie, Rosemary is impregnated by a demon; the pregnancy causes her great mental and physical anguish.
