Episode cast overview:
Lisa Robin Kelly ...
David Milbank


Despite the worsening Forman budget now Red has even less hours in the car plant and lost the salesman job with Bob, the basement boys go see Star Wars in Kenosha and are instantly hooked, especially Eric. Red is happy as a clam to hear Mr. Milbank has returned to re-open the plant full time, and promises Kitty a celebratory dinner and a movie. Eric's 'Jedi knight joy' gets a first blow when he is ordered to be nice to the boss's son, David, a worse one when the kid, whom he beat up when still sickly, turned out bigger then any of the gang, an uppercut when David shows more interest in Donna and more talent for courting her. Kitty sees Eric gets the parental blessing to fight for his girl and actually lands a hard punch, but David's news hits much harder, and not just in Eric's baffled face... Written by KGF Vissers

Laurie Forman: Hey little brother. I made out with Kelso.
Eric Forman: SHUT UP!
Laurie Forman: What is wrong with you?
Eric Forman: Everything is wrong. Donna's mad at me, and the plant's closing, dad's out of a job.
Laurie Forman: Oh wow, I guess this is a bad time to tell him I flunked out of college.
Eric Forman: You know what Laurie, I cannot believe that you're the favorite.
Laurie Forman: Yeh. Doesn't it kick ass.
