Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • superb

    Eric is getting ready to leave for Africa, but will things change when Red and Kitty find out what exactly it is him and his friends do in their basement? Hyde wants to go to Chicago to find Jackie, but a surprise is there- Kelso. On this cliffhanger, the episode, and the 7th season, end.

    Good episode. It was emotional, and funny. The only thing I would have wanted different was have Hyde find Kelso be somewhere NEAR the end. I felt the episode should've ended with Eric leaving. But otherwise this was a pretty good episode, I felt anyway. Final grade is an A-moreless
  • after this season things go wrong

    in the season 7 finale eric is ready to go to Africa and it seens that Kelso and jackie are starting to be back togeter and hyde and be acting werid and after years of doing the circle Red finally catches them and he was going to punish eric but he is alright out of the house and hyde so going back to jackie and he leaves the record store to leo to watch it over and he see kelso and jackie about to have some sex and Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher are no longer main characters of that 70's showmoreless
  • season 7 finale

    This should have been how the show ended. Eric, the biggest screwup of them all, finally gets out of Point Place and with a few slight changes you could have had Kelso and Jackie end up together. But instead they tried for an 8th season and failed horribly.

    The show was already reaching during this episode so much, but it was not that bad. It would have been a fitting goodbye to these characters and while I would have liked a stronger finale, this would not have left as sour a taste in the viewer's mouth as the season 8 finale did.moreless
  • This marks the end of Eric Forman

    Overall Score;


    This episode was one of my favorites; finale season, to be exact. Jackie and Eric leaves and fleds. But, actually, Jackie returns. eric does not.

    My favorite part - and I'm sure this is yours - is when the gang gets high, with all these fnny emations! Like moving background, fish eye, twinkie, and - of course - the face float!

    But, this episode didn't make me laugh much. It made me cry. Donna starts worring about Eric and Red starts saying I love you to him. So sweet. I feel SO sorry for Eric leaving. It's hard to say goodbye to a lovable character that we all love as the "Skinny, flem"

    And, I LOVE the Benny Hill credits.moreless
  • So sad to see Eric go.

    Wow, Eric is gone for good you think to yourself, it is finally over, how can they continue the series without him. But anyways besides the point. Hyde goes to propose to Jackie only to find Kelso almost nailing Jackie which is also painful to watch because it is the end of a great relationship but this time for good. The whole goodbye sequence was amazing except Fez's part cause Eric never really talks to Fez, & Charlie stays with the gang, Kitty finally letting go, just amazing. Donna & Eric's last kiss, the final shot with Eric in in until the series finale, everything was just perfect!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The music used in this episode was:
      The Night Chicago Died (1974) by Paper Lace;
      The Beer Barrel Polka (Roll Out The Barrel) (1927) (played by the Oom-Pah-Pah band).

    • In this episode, Kitty mentions a gift that she gave to Red before he went to Korea. This is impossible; in the third season episode Backstage Pass we learn that Red and Kitty met after he came back from Korea, in either 1952 or 1953.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Kelso: Eric, I know you're scared of getting your shots. So, I'm going to be a pal and get them with you. Because I owe you for that time I chucked a dead racoon at you, and then it turned out to not be dead, and it bit you, and then you kicked it back at me and it bit me, and then we both had to go and get rabies shots.
      Hyde: And then on the way to the hospital, Kelso saw that dog and he jumped out of the car because he wanted to go pet it. But he forgot the car was moving and he broke his arm. That was the funniest, bloodiest, most rabies filled day ever.

    • Leo: Well, where's that loud girl you're always hanging with?
      Hyde: Jackie? She's in Chicago.
      Leo: Wait. If Jackie's in Chicago, I have a question. Who's Jackie?
      Hyde: Jackie's the loud girl.
      Leo: Loud Girl's in Chicago! Hey, that's why you're sad, man! You love Loud Girl!
      Hyde: Maybe I do. You know what? The only reason I'm admitting that is because you have no short term memory and you're gonna forget this conversation when it's over.
      Leo: Hey, that's not true, man! Hey, guess what I found out! Loud Girl's in Chicago!

    • Red: I can not believe that this is what you idiots have been doing in my basement all these years! I wish I had 2,000 feet, so I could stick 500 of them in each of your asses!
