    I have to say, this episode was very slow paced, and it took a while to get to the point but it was good because of the nice cliffhanger. Kelso swears he slept with Brooke at a concert. The gang doesn't believe him. Eric tries to check out playboys from the library. Kelso thinks there is a Secret Hot Girls Club that Donna is the president of. Hyde calls Brooke hot, so now Jackie is insecure, while Kitty & Red give Jackie & Hyde relationship advice. Fez tries to have sex with virgins, which doesn't work out so well. See, do these plots seem very promising to you? Well the cliffhanger made up for it. It turns out that Michael did sleep with Brooke at the concert. "Burn!" Except there is one problem: Brooke is pregnant. Quite a surprise to everybody else. An okay Kelso-centric episode, everyone's else's plot seemed dull right next to his which brought the rating of this episode down. An okay episode, with a great cliffhanger. Good installment this time around.moreless
  • Kelso REALLY is tellin' the truth!

    8.9
    When Brooke, a girl working in the library, comes into the HUB, Kelso tries to woo her to beliving that she did it with him at the Molly Hatched concert. Y'know, with friends. He tries EVERYTHING to get in, but, overall, they won't listen.



    And that makes Hyde remark about how Brooke's hot. Jackie wants deniel, but, she has to face fact; some people wanna date some people and think someones hot. But, she dosen't she has a trick up her sleeve she learned from Kitty; manipulation. With that in mind, Hyde is the loser!



    And, for the moment of truth, when Kelso gives up, Brooke comes in; Then;



    Kelso: Excuse me.... Burn! Burn! BURN BURN! Burn! BUrn! Burn...



    then, comes another suprise;



    Brooke: Michael, I found out I'm pregnant.



    Kelso's responce?



    Kelso: I didn't touch her!



    Overall, it's a good episode. Not to my expectons, but funny, none the less.moreless

  • Kelso searches for Brooke. Eric finds a new love for Playboy. Jackie and Hyde's relationship takes a turn.

    This episode had everything for me. I think this is the first episode Brooke(Shannon Elizabeth) is in. Kelso was very funny as usual. Who does not love "Dancing Bubble Kiss Time". Great episode. Kelso claims to have "done it" with Brooke at a Molly Hatchet concert. The gang also finds out there is a library. That just happens to be where Brooke works. In the beginning Brooke denies knowing Kelso. Then Kelso thinks he can win her with his intelligence but that proves to be wrong. Jackie is upset over the fact that Hyde thinks Brooke is hot. So Jackie want him to lie and say no so that she feels better. She seeks Kitty's help over this problem. Kelso's last attempt to win Brooke fails until she drops the bomb on him. She pregnant with his baby.moreless
  • Kelso hooks up but Brooke won't admit it!

    9.6
    This episode is unbelievable, Kelso trying to convince the gang that he did it with Brooke, only to discover that it was the biggest mistake of his life, when Brooke finally admits what happened and the consequences of it, and Kelso as a father would be interesting to see. Kelso running around the house burning everyone who didn’t believe him is a classic moment, leading up to a terrific ending.



    The Secret Hot Girls Club is a hilarious concept, and leaves all guys wondering if there is such a thing as Super bubble kiss time, and all in all this episode is fantastic, with Hyde’s commitment not to lie and Jackie’s stubborn behaviour being a great subplot in a superb episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Kelso: Oh, I hate the library! The only good thing about it is that you can check out Playboys. I mean, they have every issue since it started.
      Eric: Wait, every issue? Are you telling me that they have the one with Pamela Sue Martin, television's Nancy Drew, in a grotto, straddling the world's luckiest boulder? (Donna looks at him) Er...uh, they have periodicals, you say?

      Nancy Drew was a girl detective with a squeaky-clean image; Pamela Sue Martin played her in The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries. As part of her campaign to dispel that image, Pamela Sue Martin posed in Playboy in July, 1978.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Kelso: Hey, Brooke. Yeah... I know this is kind of awkward, but could you tell my friends over there (Fez, Eric and Hyde wave) about you and me at the Molly Hatchet concert?
      Brooke: Do I know you?
      Eric: Hey, I'm sorry to interrupt, but, uh... burn!

    • Jackie: Fez, if you want to find virgins, go where ugly girls pray to get pretty... the local house of worship.
      Fez: House of worship? Are you sure you don't mean the house of pie?

    • Kelso: Why won't [Brooke] admit that we did it?
      Eric: Kelso, there are race horses, and there are donkeys. And you are a great donkey, you are, like, top donkey! But she's a race horse, and guess what? She don't want no donkey.
      Kelso: She might...

    • Jackie: Steven, why can't you just say that Brooke's not hot? It's common relationship courtesy. If you can't do this, what will you do when I'm old and ask you if I have crow's feet around my eyes?
      Hyde: By the way, that's already starting.
      (Jackie leaves)
      Red: You've never been in a relationship, have you?

    • Brooke: Look, I know why you're here, and I'm sorry; you're not my type. I was high school valedictorian, and you're the antithesis of that.
      Kelso: The anti-who-what?
      Brooke: Exactly.

    • Fez: Well, my plan to have sex with virgins failed. So, I've widened my search from virgins to everyone.
      Eric: So, basically, you're back to where you started this morning.
      Fez: Not really. I had some pie. I've done less in a day.

    • (Brooke has just admitted she was with Kelso at the Molly Hatchet concert)
      Kelso: (to Fez) Burn! (to Donna) Burn! (to Eric) Burn! (to Jackie and Hyde) Burn, burn!
      (runs upstairs to the kitchen where Kitty and Red are sitting)
      Kelso: Burn! Burn!
      (runs back down stairs)
      Kelso: Burn! We totally did it!
      Brooke: Michael, I just found out I'm pregnant.
      Kelso: I never touched her!

    • Donna: Kelso, there is no secret hot girls club.
      Kelso: Well of course the president won't admit it.
      Eric: Y'know I don't care if there's a club or not, 'dancing bubble kiss time' is just a fabulous idea.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Kitty: You know who else I like? That little fellow who plays Columbo. I just want to give him a bath!

      The little fellow who plays Columbo is Peter Falk; Columbo aired regularly on NBC from 1971 to 1978. The Columbo character was always slightly dirty and dishevelled.

    • Kelso: What is Brooke's deal, man? I mean, most girls lie about doing it with me when they haven't! This is... everything is backwards!
      Eric: Yeah, this is just like Freaky Friday, but unlike that charming little movie, your story has no basis in fact.

      The 1976 movie, Freaky Friday, was about a mother and daughter who switch bodies for a day.

    • Kelso: I have heard of Dewey Decimal. He's Donald Duck's nephew.

      The Dewey Decimal System is the system used by libraries to classify and organize books. Donald Duck has three nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie.
