  • Quotes

    • Eric: Well... did you see that? I told you the truth and we got into a fight. My dad told my mom she's pleasant, a whopper of a lie, and they've been married 150 years.
      Donna: I don't care. I want you to tell me the truth all the time.
      Eric: No, no, you don't. It's like when women ask whether or not their outfit makes them look fat. How many men tell them they look fat? Zero. How many women look fat? Not zero.

    • Kelso: Man, that is one big bad-ass ring. Hey, maybe people will think that you won the Super Bowl.
      Hyde: Nah, nobody will believe that. But he could be the sick little boy that the whole team rallies around.

    • (Kitty is crying because she won't be able to have more kids)
      Red: Oh Kitty, it's okay. You've still got Eric. He's sort of a baby. I'll make him cry if you want.

    • Donna: How could you lose it?! I told you it was a symbol of our loving freakin' relationship!

    • Eric: Donna, maybe I'm just not a man-ring kind of guy. I mean, I like man... pants and man shirts.

    • Nina (to Fez): You're stubborn, you're under-qualified, and you hardly speak any English. Welcome to the DMV!
