  • What could have been a great plot felt rushed.

    1.0
    The writers must not have put any effort into this episode, seeing as they only had ten minutes to write it. While it is a great concept, they way it was presented couldn't have been any worse. I waiting for something interesting to happen, yet nothing did. Everything that was said, particularly by Kelso and Fez, was a horrible attempt at humor. All of these events seemed to happen one after another with absolutely no segue. Almost every other episode in Season 8 was quite mediocre, but at least there was some thought put into them and they weren't thrown together at the last minute.moreless

    Like someone else said on here, this episode felt way too rushed, I would have to say, this was one of the "better" episodes of season eight though, considering I found myself laughing more than I usually do while watching a season eight episode. Ashton Kutcher managed to hold up this episode with his presence, but the whole episode just felt like the writers trying write out Ashton Kutcher's character as soon as possible. The concept was good, but I felt like there should have been a follow up episode or something of that manner, with Kelso getting ready to leave, saying his goodbye's to everyone. His send off just seemed way too rushed.



    Donna continues to be extremely annoying, it's as though she has nothing better to do than sit around waiting around for Eric to call her, how old is she, 21, 22? Why is she still living at home with her father? I thought after Eric left, she would embark on new things. Not hang around with Jackie all day doing absolutely nothing.



    As for the proposal, it was a good cold opening and it was a nice fit in with the Forman's 25th anniversary, but then Jackie said no, and Kelso got a job with Bruce Willis' ridiculous character, which by the way didn't help this episode at all. Funny in some places, but just a rushed mess as a whole.moreless

  • Kelso bids farwell to the gang.

    9.4
    This episode is a hilarious farewell to Kelso, but with he and Eric gone, I don't know how the show is going to remain as entertaining as ever. With Kelso finally not screwing something up, but Fez doing it for him by telling Jackie is a hilarious plot, and the twists and turns of the proposal are great, and Kelso getting a security guard job in Chicago to be closer to his daughter is obviously the best way to write his character off the show.



    Red and Kitty's anniversary is also fantastic as it ties all the plots together, and Red's romantic idea to rent a cheap motel before the party was great. As for the long distance relationship between Eric and Donna, problems in communication arising this quickly can't be good, but the start of this wasn't that interesting in this episode in comparison to Kelso leaving and Red and Kitty's 25th year of marriage.



    Overall, the episode is a fantastic way to end Kelso's character on the show, by referring to his relationship with Jackie, that was always my favourite of the show, all the stupid things he's done over the years, the final circle with him, and of course one last burn.moreless
  • Kelso's final episode

    9.3
    The final episode of Kelso's awesomeness, as he proposes to Jackie out on a whim and gets every guys dream job of working security at the Playboy Mansion. Usually this would be an emotional episode, but Kelso makes it uplifting for everyone with his final Burn to Fez.



    And it looks like the producers were starting to head in a direction to split up Jackie and Hyde, shame, cause they were a cute couple.



    Bruce Willis appears as the hilarious playboy rep who offers Kelso the job, totally not something you'd expect from Sin City's Hartigan.



    So long you beautiful moron, you will be missed.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • It is Red & Kitty's 25th wedding anniversary. This means that they were married in 1954.

    • Bob: So why are you up?
      Donna: Eric's calling from Africa. You know, I never realized how nerdy he was 'til I started spending three bucks a minute filling him in on Battlestar Galactica.

      Battlestar Galactica ran for two seasons in 1978 and 1979, ending on April 29, 1979, which means that this episode takes place some time before that date.

    • Jackie: Yeah, I mean, that is weird. Who would think that a boy who plays with dolls and bailed on his wedding would be a mama's boy?

      Eric's penchant for playing with G.I. Joe and Starwars figurines was a recurring theme in many episodes; he left Donna the day before their wedding in Going Mobile (season 6, episode 24).

  • QUOTES (8)

    • (after Jackie says no to his proposal)
      Kelso: Oh, Jackie... you have just made me the happiest man on Earth! I mean, I love you and all, but this had to be my worst idea ever. And I've had some very bad ideas. I mean, a firecracker suit? What was I thinking?
      Hyde: That was the best 4th of June ever.

    • Kelso: (about Red and Kitty's 25 years together) 25 years! Man, if you were dogs you would've been married for... (thinking) 25 dog years!

    • Vic: So, Vic tells me you used to be a cop.
      Kelso: I thought you were Vic.
      Vic: There's another one, try to keep up.

    • Kelso: You told Jackie I was going to propose to her?
      Fez: Yes, and you should have seen the squealing and jumping around. And Jackie was excited too.

    • Red: I was thinking about what we did at the Starlight Hotel between our wedding and the reception, and I thought we could... well, I booked us a room.
      Kitty: To celebrate our silver anniversary, you want to take me for an afternoon tryst to a cheap motel?
      (they look at each other)
      Kitty: That is so romantic!

    • Kelso: It's the last circle before I go. Wait a minute! Now I get why we call it a circle... that's freaking awesome!

    • Kelso: This is good bye. Man, I'm gonna miss this... Being down here, I've had the best time of my life. And you know what? I will love you guys forever. Well... time to go. (he leaves)
      Jackie: Bye Michael.
      Donna: Wow... he's really gone.
      Fez (whispering): My beautiful tormentor!
      Hyde: This sucks.
      (Kelso's spot is empty; he comes running back in)
      Kelso: I'm not leaving 'til tomorrow and you were crying! BURN!

    • Kelso: Will you marry me?
      Jackie: No.
      Fez: Congratu... What the hell?
