  • Trivia

    • Kitty: Since no one fixed my sink yet, today, instead of coffee, we're having pipe sludge!
      Red: You know the doctor told me not to do household chores. It's either a working sink or a dead husband; it's your choice.
      Kitty: Well, Red, somebody's got to do something around here! The garage needs to be painted, the lawn mower won't start, and I'm getting tired of running to the hose every time I need a bourbon and water.

      Kitty wants Red to fix the sink; this is opposite to the attitude she displayed in Battle of the Sexists, (season 1, episode 4), where she did not want him doing household chores or 'fixing' things.

    • In the end of the episode, Eric schools his father in the names of his Star Wars Action Figures as his father does the same with the tools in the tool box. The problem here is that the show is set in the 70s, but Eric is showing his father the 1990s set of posed figures as well as the Millenium Falcon-shaped collector's case from the 90s. The 1970s collector's carrying case was a box for twenty unposed figures, replaced in the 80s by one shaped like the Darth Vader head.

    • Eric: Boba Fett's jet-pack doesn't just glue itself back on!

      This is often thought to be a goof, as many people think that Boba Fett didn't appear in the Star Wars saga until Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), but it isn't, in fact, wrong. Boba Fett actually first appeared in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.

  • Quotes

    • Eric: Dad, I think I know what tools are.
      Red: Good. Then grab a Phillips-head.
      Eric: Uh, shouldn't I buy Phillip a drink first?

    • Officer Kennedy: What seems to be the problem here?
      Fez: I'll tell you what the problem is! I am married to a whore!
      Laurie: I am NOT a whore. I'm just a girl who likes a good time.

    • (Fez and Hyde sitting in Kelso's patrol car)
      Fez: I can't believe they trusted Kelso with a cop car.
      Hyde: I can't believe he left the keys in the ignition.
      (they stare at each other)
      Fez: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
      Hyde: Burn rubber, little buddy!

    • Red: Why, why, why is it always my house?
      Hyde: You really want to know, or do you want to just keep yelling?
      Red: I want to keep yelling!

    • Laurie: Get away from me!!!
      Fez: I bet that's the first time you've ever said that to a man!

    • Little Jackie: I wanna go to the movies.
      Jackie: Why? You're watching me live my life. That's better than any movie.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Red: The greatest gift a son could give his father is the Heisman Trophy.

      The Heisman Trophy is awarded annually to the most outstanding college football player.

    • Bob: How am I supposed to name that tune if I can't even hear the notes?

      This refers to Name That Tune, a game show contestants tried to identify a song based on the first few notes.
