FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Don't Go Breaking My Heart (1976) by Elton John and Kiki Dee;
      Let Your Love Flow (1976) by The Bellamy Brothers;
      More, More, More (1976) by Andrea True Connection;
      Wasted Days And Wasted Nights (1974) by Freddy Fender.

    • At the 17 or 18 minute mark of the show, Hyde is doing dishes, Eric is behind him with a carton of milk, and Fez & Kelso sit at the counter as Kelso peels a banana. While Eric is griping that Hyde does too many chores around the house and makes him look bad to Red, Kelso takes a bite from that banana. You can plainly see that when he does this be breaks the banana, but when it cuts back a few scenes later, the banana isn't broken anymore. Small and minor goof, but still noticeable.

    • (Eric and Laurie are fighting at dinner)
      Hyde: Could we please not fight?
      Laurie (imitating Hyde): Could we please not fight?
      Eric (to Hyde): Could you please not suck?

    • (on Hyde's history paper)
      Laurie: Oh yeah, what'd you get? A D?
      Hyde: No. A C minus. (Red and Kitty cheer)
      Eric: I got a B.
      Red: You couldn't get an A?

    • Donna: Excuse me, Jackie, when exactly did you lose your soul?
      Jackie: Um, cheerleading camp.

    • Eric (to Hyde): You're like the brother I never had. I mean, I have a sister, but I hate her, so this is great!

    • Eric: Didn't you just, like, flunk out of college?
      Laurie: Get bent, twerp.
      Eric: Wear a bra!

    • Donna: This whole divorce thing could actually work to my advantage.
      Jackie: Exactly!
      Donna: Yeah... I just have to make it very clear that my love is contingent on how much they buy me!
      Jackie: Why am I even talking to you about this? You have a great handle on it.

    • Donna: So, my parents are, like, fighting all the time, and they want me to choose sides. But I can't, because they're both idiots.

    • Hyde: Give me a break, Forman. I don't have a mommy.

    • Kelso: You know, Hyde, seeing you work hard and take pride in what you do... I lost a lot of respect for you, man.
      Fez: You used to be my hero. My lazy American hero.

    • (Hyde is washing dishes)
      Eric: You almost done there, Hazel?
      Kelso: See, that's funny, 'cause Hazel's a maid.
