Episode Summary

Short And Curlies
As Eric prepares to go to Africa, Kitty is still having problems dealing with his departure. Donna is also having problems; she can't come up with an appropriate going away gift, but some advice from Kitty puts her on the right track. Charlie accidentally sees Kitty naked, and his attempts at apologizing only make things worse. Jackie is still in Point Place after telling everyone she was leaving for Chicago; her attempts to give Hyde one last ~last~ chance don't quite go the way she hopes they would.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Jackie returns.

    Jackie returns fro, Chicago to see Steven for real this time to give him one last chance & he still says I don't know which gets me pretty upset, but I like how Jackie & Kelso reunite, how they finally are alone & can be seen as friends, without Kelso making the moves on her. Donna as Leia is always funny, but it is kind of weird how demented Eric's mind is to have a role playing game in bed but I know it's just because Donna loves him which is great. Charlie sequence! He walks in on Kitty naked which he also does on his show "Grounded For Life", Anyways great Charlie sequence, great cliffhanger!moreless
  • Pervert or idiot? Red decides!

    Eric couldn't leave without at least one more Star Wars joke, and this episode's full of them when Donna gives him his going away present. The plot was a great one with Kitty still mad at Eric and Red still glad that he's finally leaving the house.

    Charlie being confirmed by Red as a pervert, which of course only an idiot like Kelso could get him in that situation, was a fairly funny storyline, though I'm not sure the character is really up to 70s show level of comedy gold.

    Jackie being stuck in an awkward situation by being in Point Place after apparently deserting it in the previous episode was funny, as was Fez and Kelso playing out the "Hyde's coming" joke.

    Overall, the episode was good, as the season rolls towards a close.moreless
  • Eric goes to afica.

    This might as well have been the final episode of That '70s Show because its main 2 stars Kutcher and Grace are leaving. I don't get why fox is even keeping it on the air. The episode was a pretty good conclusion to That '70s Show since next year it's sure not to be the same.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Of the three times Donna is seen disguised as Leia from Star Wars (the other two being in the season 1 episode "A New Hope" and in the episode "Gimme Shelter" from this season), this is the only time she wears this outfit for real, and not in a dream sequence.

    • (trying to relieve the tension in an uncomfortable sitation)
      Charlie: So, Mr. Forman, how wrong was it for us to get into Vietnam?

      Red has mentioned being in two wars; those were The Second World War and the Korean War. While he never fought in Vietnam, he's made his feelings about that war quite evident, most notably in A Legal Matter, when he yells at Donna for telling Fez that Vietnam was an illegal war that the US lost.

    • Eric: So, I gotta go over to Donna's... get my going away present. Man, she is, like, the world's worst gift-giver. Remember that ugly sweater vest? And that huge man-ring?

      Donna gave Eric the huge man-ring in the season 5 episode Ramble On.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Kelso: It's perfect. Look, Red assumes that everyone is either a pervert or an idiot.
      Kelso and Fez (at the same time): He thinks I'm both.
      Kelso: See, and if you walk in on Red naked, he's gonna assume that you're the biggest idiot in the world.
      Charlie: That kinda makes sense! You probably hear this all the time, but... you're really smart.
      (Fez looks at Kelso while Kelso thinks)
      Kelso: I do hear that all the time!

    • Red: Charlie here walked into our bedroom and saw Kitty naked!
      Bob: Woo hoo! How was that?

    • Red: I can't think of anything worse than sending you to Africa. You're going to Africa.

  • NOTES (0)


    • Eric: Donna, from now on, the only thing I'd like you to say is, "Use the Force, Eric."

      The phrase "Use the Force" and Donna's costume are both from the movie Star Wars (1977).
