AIRED:
Eric skips school with Donna, Hyde, and Kelso for the first time in his life. Unbelievably, the gang finds a keg in the middle of the road and sees it as a sign that they should throw a party.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Night Chicago Died (1974) by Paper Lace;
      Smoke on the Water (1972) by Deep Purple.

    • In the scene where Kitty is washing her nurse's uniform and talking to the gang, there's a bottle of Drano-Max on the shelf behind her. Drano-Max was not available in the 70s; the label looks like a late-1990s version of the product.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Destroy: Hey, Kelshmo, what, your tap is broken? Why did you do something stupid like buy a stupid, broken tap? What are you? Stupid?
      Kelso: It wasn't broken until you broke it!

    • Kitty: I don't know if we have enough ice, Eric took a whole tubful.
      Red: He took a tub of ice?
      Kitty: Oh, the kids are making a volcano!
      Midge: Right, that's why Donna left with all the plastic cups.
      Red: Plastic cups?
      Midge: Sure, plastic volcano cups.
      Bob: If I didn't know better, I'd say they were having a kegger! (looks at Red) Oh Jeez!

    • Eric: Alright, how do you get the beer out?
      Hyde: Through the tap.
      Eric: What tap?
      (everyone notices there isn't a tap on the keg.)
      Hyde: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Hyde: ...Let's drink beer!
      Kelso: Me first!
      Donna: No way! I spotted it!
      Kelso: Nah, I saw it too. I just didn't say anything!
      Hyde: You saw a keg and you didn't say anything?! BACK OF THE LINE!

    • Eric: I stole my dad's tap--
      (he sees his father, with the cops)
      Eric: ...back from those thieves.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • The TV show that the Pinciottis and the Formans are watching is Rich Man, Poor Man, a 12-hour mini-series that ran in February and March, 1976.

    • Red (to Bob): Good work, Starsky.

      This refers to Starsky & Hutch, a popular police show that ran from 1975 to 1979.

    • Bob: How many stories do you suppose there are in this naked burg?
      Red: Eight, Bob. Eight.

      Bob's question and Red's answer both refer to the ending for the popular TV show The Naked City which ran from 1958 to 1963. Each episode ended with the narrator voiceover saying, "There are eight million stories in the Naked City. This has been one of them."

    • Kelso: Is Opie getting angry?
      Eric: What did I tell you about calling me Opie?

      Opie was a character on The Andy Griffith Show (1960 - 1968), played by a young Ron Howard. The character was known for his wholesome goodness.

    • Kid: I might have heard something about a party. I can't recall. Maybe Andrew Jackson could remind me.
      Bob: Andrew Jackson, huh? (flipping through money) He's not in, but Abe Lincoln's hanging out with the Washington twins.

      Andrew Jackson is on the American $20.00; Abraham Lincoln is on the American $5.00; and George Washington is on the American $1.00. So the kid asks for twenty dollars; Bob offers him seven dollars.
