    Red won't let Eric drive the Vista Cruiser because of a scratch, so Kelso borrows a car from his cousin. All is going well until the car has been reported stolen, so the guys are taken into questioning by cops. In the end it turns out to be one big misunderstanding. Oh, and at the end of the episode Kelso and Jackie lose their virginity.



    Good episode, the scenes of the guys in the police station were hilarious. Kelso on the phone with Jackie was probably my favorite part. Or when Fez was about to attack him. I liked Red's line about 'buying Disneyland'. Overall a hilarious episode from season one, definitely getting an A from memoreless

    That 70's Show's first season was groundbreaking, it was revolutionary, but sometimes it was not that great, and while this was definitely a memorable one, there are quite a few episodes out there that are superior. For what this was though, a cheap cop out of a way to finally have Kelso and Jackie do it, it was still a funny episode at times. You will definitely laugh when watching this, either at Red or at Kelso or at Fez when he attacks Kelso in prison.



    Not too many quotable lines, but that is not always necessary for an episode to be good.moreless

  • For getting a tiny scratch on the Vista Cruiser, Red takes away Eric's keys, so Eric is carless. Kelso gets a hold of a car, though, and drives the gang around for the night - until they get arrested for driving a stolen car.moreless

    Another funny episode. Red makes a big deal out of a little scratch that was hardly Eric's fault. If he wouldn't of allowed himself to get a "purple nurple" while he was driving from Kelso, then we never would of had this whole situation. But guess what. He did allow Kelso to give him a "purple nurple" while he was driving, so Eric's driving priviledges are taken away temporarily, until Eric can show, 'a little responsibility'. But Kelso gets a hold of his cousin's car, so now, the gang has a set of wheels. While Eric complains about being in the back seat and everything, a police pulls the car over, claiming it is stolen. So Eric, Hyde, Kelso, and Fez spend about the entire night in prison room that has nothing but four chairs and a phone booth. Kelso takes the dime the police give him to call Jackie to come and bail them out. But leave it to Kelso to get distracted and pretend that he got treated badly while in prison, and Jackie says that when he gets out of prison, they're going to make beautiful love! Kelso is excited and hangs up the phone, without asking her for help. So they're in even more trouble. That is, until Eric steps up and becomes the man. He asks the officer to let them go, while another officer comes and report the car was not stolen. So the guys are set free, and Eric is the hero, again. And Jackie keeps her promise. Kelso arrives in her bedroom, and the scene sets off as the two lovebirds begin making out slowly on the bed.moreless

    Eric is in the slammer, when he borrows Kelso's stolen car. I love this episode because it seems like it was an Eric & Red episode, Red always catching every mistake, and Kitty bringing it up over & over again, I loved when they got pulled over by the cops, something strange occurred to me while watching this episode, haven't Kelso & Jackie been doing it since the first episode, that seemed strange to me. That in this episode, they make it all special. And Donna & Jackie talk about sex. An amazing lot with great key points on the 70s.moreless
