  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Eric turns 18, and the episode takes place in 1978. But in Eric's Birthday, he turned 17, and the episode took place in 1976. Since it's now two years later, he should be turning 19, not 18. Also, in this episode, Eric wants and expects a surprise party, which is opposite to the attitude he had towards his 17th birthday.

  • Quotes

    • Eric: Oh, the big paw's on the 11, so it's almost time to take Donna to the bus station. This is it, you guys, she's really going away.
      Hyde: Forman, we have just the thing to make you feel better. (Kelso goes into a corner to get something. Kelso holds out a case of beer happily) Another case of beer!
      Eric: Oooooh, I'm just not in the mood to put on a dress. But thanks anyway, Puddin' Pop.

    • Eric: I can't freakin' believe that my mom didn't plan a freakin' party on my 18th freakin' birthday! The only party that's going on this house is in their bedroom, and that's all ablobloblo!

    • Jackie: So I heard Eric threw a toaster.
      Hyde: It's almost as bad as the time he called you a poodle head.
      Donna: Which he brought up again today.
      Kelso: He's not good!
      Jackie: Well I'm just surprised that Eric was able to lift a toaster.

    • Hyde(after Eric's daydream that he's Rick Blaine): Now I want a Baby Ruth.

    • Eric: You know, Bogie and I have more in common than you think. (has a daydream of him as Rick Blaine) Out of all the teenage burger hangouts, and all the towns, and all the world, she walks into mine, only to walk back out again. (drinks a drink, and walks over to Fez, who's supposed to play Sam) Play it, Fez.
      Fez: It will cost you a Baby Ruth. (Eric takes out a Baby Ruth from his pocket, and drops it on Fez's keyboard. Fez starts playing and singing.) "Hold the line, love isn't always on time! Oh no no! Hold the liiiiine! Love isn't always on time! OOOOOW! Love isn't always on time! Hold the liiiiine! Love isn't always on time!"

    • Hyde: How'd it go with Donna?
      Eric: I ruined it. And I knew I was ruining it, while I was ruining it. I just kept on ruining it. Now Bogie, ya know that...that guy knows how to let a woman go, "Here's lookin' at you kid." I threw a toaster.

    • Eric(sees Hyde watching TV): Oh man, Casablanca, this is the part Humphery Bogart tells Ingrid Bergman he'll always have Paris.
      Hyde: What's his problem? The guy owns a bar! He's been beating those French sluts off with a stick!

    • Eric: Oh, so you're taking the toaster.
      Donna: Wait.
      Eric: Yeah, it's just, you know, we bought it together, so I guess I kind of thought it was like our toaster. What do I know, I'm not the one that's going to college, right. (nervously laughs) You are, with my toaster.
      Donna: Ok, Eric, if it's a problem-
      Eric: Oh it's a problem, you thought you could just sneak it out of town without telling me, because you knew it was wrong, didn't you, lady?
      Donna: Ok, Eric, I don't know what your deal is, but you're ruining our last day together.
      Eric (takes the toaster): I wouldn't be me if I didn't ruin it! (about to leave, but goes back, and drops the toaster in a box) You know what?! Enjoy your toast! I hope it burns! (then leaves)

    • Kitty (sees Eric pranked by using a dress and having black paint on his face): Oh, good lord.
      Eric(wakes up): Huh? What?
      Red: Happy birthday, dumbass.

    • Fez: Eric, long distance don't work, just like my girlfriend back home.
      Eric: Fez, you have a girlfriend back home?
      Fez: No, don't you listen? Long distance relationships don't work.

    • Eric(Eric,Hyde,Kelso and Fez in the basement): And.......midnight! So long 17, in the words of Alice Cooper, I'm 18 and I like it!
      Hyde: Happy birthday, man.
      Kelso: Let's get him his present! (Hyde and Kelso go to the washing machine and open it.) A case...of 23 beers!
      Hyde: Kelso...
      Kelso: What? I deserved one, I carried it.

    • Kelso: Well I guess I must be Eric's best friend, 'cause I'm the only one took the trouble of getting him a birthday cake. (he lifts up a piece of cake and eats it) It's good too.
      Fez: Maybe we should think about getting him something else. What do you think, Puddin Pop?
      Hyde(laughing uncomfortably): Why does everybody keep calling me that? My name's not Puddin' Pop, I've never heard that name before in my life. Forman's dead.
      Jackie: Hey, if you guys think that's funny, you should hear what Steven calls me. He calls me his... (Hyde's hand shoots out and shoves a piece of cake in Jackie's face) Hey! Oh hey, that's some good cake.

    • Jackie: Steven I am so glad we're back together. I thought I'd lost my little Puddin' Pop forever.
      Hyde: Wanna hear something sick? I actually missed you calling me Puddin' Pop.
