    This episode was truly magnificent. Flawless, for sure.



    This is the TV.com summary for "Romantic Weekend":



    Eric finds a brochure for a nice motel and plans a romantic weekend with Donna, who's glad for the chance to get away from her feuding parents. Both lie about their whereabouts to their parents. But the lie blows up in their faces when they learn who their neighbors are at the motel. Meanwhile, Kelso thinks that he's not a man any more because he can't perform with Pam Macy. This episode was perfect. Drunk Donna is so funny, she is just hilarious, and so loopy and random.

    I like this episode because out of all the people, Kitty & Red are next door to Donna & Eric, this could only happen to Eric, Donna is so funny when she is drunk, like her lines are so funny & random, it was very cringe-worthy when Red was in the doorway when Eric opened the door, then when Kitty gets her surprise she locks Eric out so she can have alone time with Red, then Bob & Midge come upset but they accidentally go in Kitty & Red's room while Eric is still locked out. I love the B plot, Kelso can't get it up, he could only do it for Jackie which is really sweet, "I'm back!" This episode was flawless.moreless
  • A lot of Amish people can't raise Kelso's barn!

    All three plots in this episode are hilarious, especially Kelso’s with all the symbolism about his predicament and the gang’s ways of describing the condition, which were all classic, Kelso admitting that he was “omnipotent” also being a terrific scene along with the Genie Jackie fantasies and how he is cured.



    Red and Kitty being in the same hotel as Donna and Eric was also brilliant, both fights being great, especially Donna’s drunkenness and Eric getting kicked out of both rooms, Bob and Midge at the end being a hilarious ending.



    Overall, this episode was very funny, even the momentary scene of Hyde taking beers while Fez was on lookout, a job he cannot do well, or maybe he can and just thinks it’s funnier that way. Great laughs and memorable scenes especially from Kelso’s plot.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Donna: Ever since my dad lost the store, he just shuffles around in a not-completely-closed bathrobe. It's really depressing.

      Bob lost his store, "Bargain Bob's Appliances", shortly after the episode Jackie Bags Hyde earlier this season.

    • The music used in this episode was:
      T.N.T. (1975) by AC/DC;
      Back In The Saddle (1976) by Aerosmith;
      Saturday Night (1975) by The Bay City Rollers;
      Tell Me Something Good (1974) by Rufus & Chaka Khan.

    • Kitty: Will Michael's parents be home?
      Eric: Yes.
      Red: Are they as dumb as he is?
      Eric: I can't lie. Yes, yes they are.
      Red: Right answer. That was a trick question. I know they're dumb.

      Both Eric and Red say that Kelso's parents are dumb; but in the first season episode, Career Day, we see Kelso's father at work, and he seems to be quite intelligent.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • (explaining how he was making out with Pam Macy in the school orchestra room)
      Kelso: You know the really, really bad thing that can happen to guys when they're with girls?
      Fez: Oh, did Mr. Cooper come in to buff the floor?
      Kelso: No. Okay. Let me put it this way. The buffer wouldn't buff.
      Fez: Poor Mr. Cooper.
      Hyde: No, Fez. I think what he's trying to say is the rabbit wouldn't come out of the hat.
      Eric: The weasel wouldn't pop.
      Hyde: The alphabet soup never spelled "go."

    • Donna: We're spending the weekend at a hotel.
      Hyde: What, car sex isn't good enough anymore?
      Fez: I would love car sex... Or just sex... Or just a car.

    • (Bob and Midge, rushing into the dark hotel room)
      Bob: You get off my daughter!
      Red: Bob! What the hell?
      Midge: Oh, Kitty! What a pretty nightgown!
      Kitty: Thank you, Midge. Could you hand it to me, please?

    • Kelso: If this is about maturity, I want nothing to do with it!

    • Kelso: Guys, I gotta tell you something... I'm omnipotent.

    • Kelso: Just don't tell anybody, okay?
      Pam: Oh, Flopsie, I'm not gonna tell anybody... I'm gonna tell everybody!
