Kelso at the Reunion
12 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Eric is shown the future with the Angel, he is present from the 1970s to the 1980s. He is shown what it would be like if he'd had never loved. In the future, Kelso loses his job as the highest paid weather man to selling mattresses for Eric. Seeing the future, Erics final destination of his dream is 10 years further in the future at the Class Reunion. Kelso lets himself go. He had gain weight, looking round with a belly poking out, and wearing a tight pink shirt, tucked in to show he has an outie bellybutton that's distinctly poking through the shirt. From previous shows I do believe Kelso had an innie bellybutton. How was it possible for an innie to become an outie?
