Storyline

Michael ignores Jackie's mean refusal to invite Fez and Hyde for the fancy party she hosts in her posh parents' home, even adding dubious acquaintances, including scamp Timmy, who starts by stripping off his pants. Unaccustomed to the mundane, Eric overdoes it when Donna suggests he should relax and enjoy. Jackie gite sulk in her room, demanding Kelso 'fixes it', but things get even further out of hand. Meanwhile Red has accidentally discovers Bob wears a hair-rug and tells Kitty, so that becomes the elephant in Red's living room on the coupe's scrabble night. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Michael Kelso: Man, I wish Jackie would loosen up. She's throwing a great party down here and she's missing it.
Fez: Kelso, you don't get it, huh? This party meant the world to Jackie, and you crapped on it.
Steven Hyde: Alright, ease up on Kelso, huh?
Michael Kelso: Thanks, Hyde.

Amy Adams goes back to high school
14 June 2016 | by (Lindenhurst, IL) – See all my reviews

Not a bad episode, but not one of the better ones from Season 2 either.

The adults play scrabble, and Bob fesses up about his rug.

The kids have a party, where a 26 year-old Amy Adams shows up in one of her early roles as a smokin' hot high school mean girl who disses Hyde in front of her friends, but ultimately comes back later for some action.

And Kelso (who seems to be in his glam rock rouge phase) does his best Fire Marshall Bill impersonation and attempts to douse a garbage can fire with brandy. The Kelso/Jackie & Eric/Donna relationships hit some turbulence, but you know this gang will get through it, right?

Watch at your own risk.
