Upon watching the episode for the first time, I do recall laughing at most of the things Kitty said but re-watching the episode now, I definitely can see how insufferable most of the scenes are. The whole episode was basically an insult to Topher Grace, as was the last episode.
Randy had a lot of screen time which is never good for this show. The only scene I found myself laughing at was when Kitty broke the egg but that's really about it. As for the Hyde story line, it was just a reminder of how butchered the Jackie & Hyde relationship is.
The whole "I Love Chicago" thing hinted at the past, yet we never really found closure. And the party was totally unrelated to the main story line that didn't seem to tie in any way. The fallout of the guitar and Hyde confessing was predictable and contrived. What happened to my favorite show of all time? Seriously.
