FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Red: Look at me, I'm almost 50!

      This episode is set in 1977. If Red is 49, this means he was born in 1928, and would make him 13 in 1941, when the US entered the Second World War, and 22 in 1950, when the Korean War started. If Red had only been involved in WWII at the very end, he would have been old enough, as he would have been 17 in 1945; 17 is the required age for enlistment. However, in Drive In, (season 1, episode 8), Red specifically mentioned being at Guadalcanal, a campaign that was fought between Aug. 7, 1942 and Feb. 9, 1943. Red would have been 14 to 15 years old at this time, meaning that he lied to get into the military.

    • Bob: You know, I had a Ford delivery van in high school. It's a lot of fun until somebody gets preg.....You got to be careful in this van Kelso. You know what I mean?
      Midge: An idiot would know what you mean.
      Kelso: What do you mean?

    • Hyde: I want you to feast your eyes on this very large and flat cargo area.
      Eric: Wow, you could haul plywood in this!
      Hyde: Or Donna.
      Eric: Why would I want to... oh! No, Donna would never do it in a van.

    • Jackie: I'm so proud of [Kelso] that if I weren't already sleeping with him, I'd sleep with him.

    • (in the bar)
      Red: How ya doin', Fez?
      Fez: Oh my God, he knows my name!

    • Red: Normally, you do what your mother says. Sometimes you're a dumb-ass, but mostly you're a good kid.
      Eric: Thank you, sir.
      Red: But this is my last day of work, and I didn't get a party, and I didn't get a gold watch, and I didn't get crap... So let's drink!

    • Kitty: This isn't like you, Red.
      Red: What? I can't have a beer?
      Kitty: No; hanging around with people. You hate people.
      (they both laugh)
      Red: Yeah, I do!
