Episode complete credited cast:
Little Boy


Eric and Donna slept together in her bed, and are caught by pa Bob, Eric wearing briefs and her top; strangely enough also in her closet was Fez, while his new wife Laurie is on 'honeymoon'- with her friend Carlos! Red has had a mild heart attack, so the doctor prescribes rest and 'not holding back', which worries Eric his dad from hell might get still worse. Eric's only consolation is taunting his lifelong tormentor with his low-fat diet. Kelso starts training for police academy by drinking eggs 'like Rocky', till Jackie reminds him of his allergy, the boys rush him to hospital, swelling up uglier then anyone dares tell the beauty-conscious boy. Jackie has finally chosen, for Hyde. But he didn't just wait; Kelso considers her too complicated and wants to be just friends. Despite everything, Eric feels he can't leave home now, although he wants nothing more. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The rumor of FOX replacing Lisa Robin Kelly because of her drug problem is not true. The producers offered her to appear in 13 episodes this season and be credited as a regular again as Laurie Forman. She did accept and taped the first episodes of the season, but then decided to leave the show and move on to other things (as FOX and Wilmer Valderrama stated). She was then replaced by Christina Moore and re-taped the scenes Lisa appeared in. "The Kids Are Alright" was once this show's working title. See more »


Michael Kelso: Now, I'm going to drink my raw eggs.
Jackie Burkhart: Oh, Michael, no.
Michael Kelso: No, Jackie, wait until I finish my eggs.
Jackie Burkhart: But Michael...
Michael Kelso: Jackie, whatever it is it can wait until I finish my eggs!
Jackie Burkhart: Fine!
[Kelso drinks the raw eggs]
Michael Kelso: There. Now, what is this that's so important that you had to tell me?
Jackie Burkhart: You're allergic to eggs.
[Kelso thinks and then laughs]

A not really hysterical episode
20 February 2006 | by (Sæby, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a very important episode but it's way too serious to be "That 70's Show". The jokes in it are not really that great.

The episodes with the gang split up usually works great but this time, I don't know, it's not really good. The sentimentality of Donna and Eric's relationship is a very heavy theme.

Furthermore, the concentration on Hyde and Jackie is somehow misplaced. It doesn't really give the same feeling as Jackie and Kelso being together. Jackie hasn't yet started driving him nuts, she seems too calm to be the Jackie we know.

Kelso having a hard time forgetting Jackie doesn't seem like our Kelso either. Sometimes it seems he's got no feelings for the women he dates and that he even confirms in this episode but still he can't forget Jackie.

I'm sorry folks, it doesn't work out.

One thing that does work out in this episode is Eric's "Star Wars"-talk. Comparing himself with Luke Skywalker, that is funny! Also, when Hyde distracts Red with his conspiracy talk is a really memorable moment of this episode.

Well, the gang's back together and now we can await the next episode.
