    Bob decides he wants to move to Florida, and Donna does not want to, so she is at a crossroads in her life. She decides to move in with Randy, but in the end, she decides to break up with him, and start the next chapter of her life- college.

    Fez keeps getting pranked by Jackie, and he has had enough, so he puts green dye in her shampoo. He then goes on to say that he thinks she is ugly on the inside, and outside. Will they end up together?!

    Good episode. It was pretty funny, especially Fez being all upset over what Jackie wrote on his car (which wasn't subtle, mind you, but still funny). And the ending was also kind of surprising, in a good way, which made me want to see what was going to happen. Grade for this episode- A+moreless

  • The episode after Fez dumps Jackie.

    It's battle of pranks in the 70's. After Fez rejects Jackie, it is time for some sweet revenge, this episode starts funny but gets quite emotional at the end, anyways the pranks are hilarious, Jackie tags Fez's car, & Fez dyes Jackie's hair green, the sad part was when Fez totally dissed Jackie so Jackie ended up rejecting Fez after he begged for an apology. The B plot was so sad, Kitty & Red moving to Florida! That was upsetting. And the most proudest moment in 70's history, Donnna dumps Randy! Which is amazingly awesome! Great cliffhanger, to a very great episode.moreless
  • Fez versus Jackie in war of the pranks!

    This episode is very pivotal, with Red and Kitty deciding to move to Florida with Bob, so they could help with Bob's "stupid bait shop idea" and this plot also affecting Donna and Randy's relationship, which comes to an end. The former is a hilarious plot with Bob finally standing up for himself, if only briefly, and the great back and forth between him and Red when he presents the idea, but the latter was sort of boring, and from the start with Donna's hesitation, it was evident the move in wouldn't work.

    Of course the funniest plot was Fez and Jackie as she pulls pranks on him to get revenge, and Fez dying her hair, and all of it out in the open when he starts listing the million reasons why Jackie is a horrible human being, much to the delight of Hyde, and Fez suddenly going back to the needy self and trying to get her back as the role reversal happens again between the two.

    Overall, this episode has a lot of decisions made, with Red, Kitty, and to a lesser extent Bob leaving Point Place, Donna leaving Randy and going to college, and Fez and Jackie having a blow out that their friendship may never recover from, and on top of that it's also a rollercoaster of laughs.moreless
  • I\\\'m gonna miss the show!

    So, definitely not one of the classics. This episode was basically just setting up everything for the season finale next week. Donna\\\'s dad and Mr. & Mrs. Forman are moving to Florida. Donna dumped Randy and wants to go to college. And we don\\\'t really know what\\\'s going to happen with Fez, Jackie, or Hyde. The part with Fez getting back at Jackie was great. She definitely had it coming to her. But unfortunately, it looks like Fez and Jackie will end up together. And I liked Jackie and Hyde so much better!!! Well, as much as I\\\'m going to miss the show, it\\\'s best this was the last season. I don\\\'t think they could have gone another. I\\\'m already getting upset for next week, though :(moreless

      Fez: No, my Jamaican Fire. It's my new cologne.

    • Jackie: Fez, you really hurt me. And I always thought that you were the one person who would never talk to me like that. You're not the guy I thought you were, and I don't think I could ever be with with you.
      Fez: But Jackie...
      Jackie: Goodbye, Fez.
      (Fez sits down on the couch as Red comes down the stairs)
      Fez: Oh, Mr. Forman, thank God you're here. I just had my heart broken and I really need someone to talk to.

    • Fez: (reading his car): Fez has a tiny -- I do not! It's perfectly normal based on all the other ones I've seen. (Hyde ~looks~ at Fez) I only look for comparison. Well, if Jackie wants war, I'll give her a war.
      Hyde: Whatever you say, Tiny.
      Fez: Hey, if it's so small, why would I name it Big John?

    • Kitty: Red, you need to go over there and apologize to Bob. He came here all excited about his idea and you made him feel bad about himself.
      Red: (chuckles) Yeah, he never saw it coming.

    • Hyde: That didn't seem so bad, Fez. I wouldn't worry about it.
      Fez: You wouldn't?

      Bob: Oh. Well, geez, you should have said that before I put the house on the market.
      Donna: You put the house on the market?
      Bob: Relax, honey, I can always take it off.
      Donna: You can?
      Bob: No, it sold this morning.

    • Bob: So, you think I'm stupid because I want to open a bait shop?
      Red: No, of course not! I think you want to open a bait shop because you're stupid.
      Bob: Well, I didn't come here to be ridiculed. (he leaves)
      Red (yelling after Bob): Then you shouldn't have worn that shirt!

    • Bob: Hey, hey! I just got back from Florida. Wanna see my tan lines?
      Kitty: Oh, for gosh sakes, Bob!
      Bob: Joke's on you! I don't got no tan lines!

  • NOTES (2)


    • Fez: Enough! I gotta get back at her. Oh I know, I'll break her TV. Ahhh, but then I'll just miss Gilligan.

      Fez is referring to the mid-60s half-hour sitcom, Gilligan's Island, which was shown in syndication throughout the 70s and beyond.
