The guys are working on Hyde's car. The girls are watching
DONNA: Wow, Hyde. I can't believe it. Your own set of wheels.
HYDE: Yep. She is the best thing that ever happened to me. Oh, except for that one time Kelso swallowed that fishhook. That was pretty cool too.
KELSO: Yeah, that was one magic trick I could never get right.
ERIC: All right, Hyde, this car is fine but, I mean, it's no Vista Cruiser. How many miles you gettin' to the gallon?
HYDE: Oh, about 11.
ERIC: Damn! Okay, fine. But, you know, the Vista Cruiser can seat eight...nine if someone sits on the stain.
HYDE: Yeah, okay, Forman, but do you have any idea how many chicks I can fit in the flatbed? Thirty-two. And that's with Big Rhonda
JACKIE (pulling away the flatbed): Eww!
Fez and Caroline get out of the car
FEZ: Oh, hello.
HYDE: What are you doing back there, Fez?
FEZ: I was...I was just showing Caroline the back of my new car and my tongue.
KELSO: Fez, this isn't your car.
JACKIE: Yeah. Foreigners can't drive here unless it's a cab.
FEZ: Shut up.
CAROLINE: Isn't he cute? Fezzie, I told you. You don't have to try and impress me anymore. I'm your girlfriend now.
FEZ: I'm sorry, Caroline. From now on, I will be totally honest.
CAROLINE: Good. Now, come on, walk me home.
FEZ: Ah, yes. And on the way, I can tell you about the time I killed a shark with a coconut.
HYDE: All right, Kelso, let's go out cruising for hot chicks with self-esteem problems.
KELSO: Yeah. No, thanks, man. I don't do that stuff anymore.
HYDE: Shut up and come on.
KELSO: No, man, I mean it. I've matured.
JACKIE: Hey, Donna, wanna go to the mall? Rerun from What's Happening is
opening up the new Dairy Queen.
DONNA: Actually, Jackie, as fun as that sounds, um, no.
KELSO: What? "Hey, hey, hey." I'm in.
JACKIE: Okay. Well, let me get my beret and some Certs with Retsyn.
HYDE: Wait a second. You're too mature to go cruising with me, but you go to the mall with Jackie?
KELSO: Yeah. It's this new thing we're trying, man. We're friends. See, I did some reflecting, and I realized that Jackie is the only girl I want to be with.
KELSO: No, every day. See, we were meant to be together. She just doesn't know
it yet. Yeah, but I have a plan.
DONNA: Oh, no.
KELSO: Oh, yeah. See, she wants to be just friends, right? Okay, so I'll be her
friend. But what she doesn't realize is that I'm also a boy. Yeah, and sooner or
later, friend is gonna lead down the path to boy. And then I'll be her friend-boy.
HYDE: That is a great plan.
JACKIE: Okay, I'm ready.
KELSO: Hey. Let's go, friend.
JACKIE: Okay (they leave)
DONNA: That is such a bad plan.
ERIC: Yeah, but, you know, on the bright side maybe we'll be there when it all
blows up in his face.
Kitty is standing at the counter making dinner, Hyde comes in
HYDE: Hey, Mrs. Forman. Happy birthday (he gives her a gift)
KITTY: Ohh. I can't believe you remembered. You are the first person to say anything all day. And how did you know I needed more flashbulbs? Thank you
(she gives him a kiss) So, do you wanna stay for dinner?
HYDE: Oh, no, thanks. I'm just gonna grab a sandwich.
KITTY: A sandwich! Steven, a sandwich is a sandwich, but a Manwich is a meal.
HYDE: Oh, well, thanks, Mrs. Forman.
ERIC: Hey, Mom, what's for dinner? I'm starving.
ERIC: Again? Ahh, we just had those.
RED: Kitty, I left my shirt on the bed. It needs to be ironed for tomorrow.
RED: Oh, and, uh I know you think I forgot, but I didn't.
KITTY: Oh, Red, I knew you'd remember.
RED: Yep, the check for the plumber is on the dresser.
KITTY: Oh. Good (she puts the plates on the table)
ERIC: Um is there anything else to eat?
KITTY: Well, you know what, honey? I don't give a good gosh darn what you eat!
(she throws the manwiches away, takes off her apron and storms off)
ERIC: Wow, she's really upset.
RED: Yeah. Nice goin'.
Kelso and Jackie are at a table, looking through a catalogue
KELSO: See, the boat neck adds dimension to your shoulders. And the plum color, that really accents your jewel-toned eyes.
JACKIE: Oh, my God. Michael, you just described my perfect outfit. You are so good at this.
KELSO: Yeah, I have a knack for ensembles (Hyde comes in) Hey, Hyde, how goes the cruising for chicks?
HYDE: It was going fine till I hit a patch of ice and almost took out a few of 'em. Big Rhonda cracked my brake light.
He walks off to order. Caroline walks up behind him
CAROLINE: Have you seen Fez?
HYDE: Uh, no. He went bowling with his host parents.
CAROLINE: Damn him! I'm sorry. I was just hoping he'd be here so we could
study together. Now I have to walk home alone in the dark. It's scary out there.
Somebody ran over Big Rhonda.
HYDE: Um, do you want a...
JACKIE: You know, Michael, I'm really enjoying our time together.
KELSO: Really? Me too.
JACKIE: Yeah, you know, the makeup, shopping, braiding each other's hair- you
are like the girlfriend I never had.
KELSO: Oh. Well, thanks, Jackie. I...Wait. Girlfriend?
JACKIE: Yeah. I mean, Donna's nice and everything but she kinda dresses like a trucker.
FORMAN LIVING ROOM
Red and Eric are reading, Kitty is watching TV
KITTY: The Waltons. Now, there's a grateful family.
KITTY: And, boy, did they love their mother.
ERIC: Oh, great. I think I've got athlete's foot.
KITTY: I am- I am going to bed.
RED: Where'd your mother go?
ERIC: To bed. Man, what's wrong with her anyway?
RED: Oh, who knows? She's been moody all day. Let me see the TV Guide (takes
the guide) Ahh. Let's see. What day is it? Ah, it's the 13th. Yeah, it seems to me I was supposed to do something on the 13th. Oh, good Lord! You forgot your mother's birthday!
ERIC: Oh, no. Dad, this is bad. This is very, very bad.
RED: All right. Don't start gettin' all twitchy. Now, we gotta think. Let's watch Chips and think.
Hyde is taking Caroline home
CAROLINE: So, Fez is really nice, huh?
HYDE: Yeah, Fez is a good guy.
CAROLINE: Yeah. You know, sometimes, when I'm trying to sleep at night I think about how much it would hurt if he ever left me. And then I say, "Fez would never leave me." But then I say, "We've only been going out for a short time. Maybe he would leave me." So then, I hold my breath until my lungs are about to explode because that's how much I think it would hurt if he ever did leave me. And then, when I regain consciousness....I start breathing again, and everything's fine. Oops. There's my house. Thanks! Bye! (she runs out)
HYDE: See ya...
Kitty is in bed reading, Eric and Red storm in
ERIC & RED: Happy birthday!
KITTY: Oh, you remembered?
RED: Well, of course we remembered, honey. We just figured that we'd wait till there was only 15 minutes left in the day and you were good and mad and then we'd sneak up here and surprise the hell out of you.
KITTY: Wow, what a good plan. 'Cause I was awfully mad.
RED: Yeah. We really had you going.
ERIC: Here, Mom. Open this one first. It's from me.
KITTY: Well, thank you, honey. Oh, a map of Wisconsin. Oh, well, thank you.
ERIC: And, Mom, I got you these balloons too.
KITTY: "Knock out the knock-knocks at Schiffy's Gas-N-Go." Huh.
RED: Wait, Kitty, there's more!
KITTY: A funnel.
RED: 'Cause I know how much you like to pour things.
KITTY: Well, um, either these gifts are really thoughtful or you bought a bunch of crap at the gas station!
KITTY: Oh, admit it, Red Forman. You forgot my birthday.
ERIC: Quick, Dad, give her the lighter.
RED: Look, Kitty, I'm sorry. But it's just...Well, marking the calendar is your responsibility.
ERIC: Oh. Dad, no.
FORMAN LIVING ROOM
Red has slept on the couch, Kitty comes down the stairs
RED: Ah, good morning, sunshine. So, what's for breakfast?
KITTY: A funnel.
Hyde, Fez, Eric and Kelso are sitting on the Elcamino
KELSO: What the heck makes Jackie think I'm her girlfriend? All I did was pick out a few of her outfits, paint her nails and give her a facial.
HYDE: Gee, I don't know, Denise.
FEZ: Um, guys, can we go inside? I'm freezing my choo-choos off.
ERIC: No way. I'm not going in there. I forgot my mom's birthday.
HYDE: Really? 'Cause I remembered your mom's birthday.
ERIC: If you remembered, why didn't you tell me?
HYDE: How would that be funny?
FEZ: I don't ever have to worry about forgetting Caroline's birthday. She wrote it on my arm with permanent marker. Isn't she sweet?
HYDE: More like psycho.
FEZ: What are you doing calling my girlfriend psycho?
HYDE: I'm sorry, Fez, did I say psycho? I meant nut bag, head case, wackadoo.
She chokes herself, man.
FEZ: Well, Hyde, maybe- maybe you should- maybe you should choke yourself!
FEZ: I said good day!
KELSO: Man, what fun is it being a girlfriend... if you don't even have your own boobs to play with?
ERIC: So what, Kelso? So you're her girlfriend. What could possibly be so bad about that?
KELSO: I-I'll tell you what could be so bad.
Jackie is getting married
JACKIE (wearing a wedding gown): Oh, Michael, this is the happiest day of my life. Thank you so much for being my maid of honor.
KELSO (wearing a bridesmaid dress): That's what girlfriends do. I'm just honored you asked me.
BACK IN THE DRIVEWAY
ERIC: Yeah, but...you know, on the flip side, try to think about your life without
Jackie at all.
Kelso sees himself behind bars, shivering in a cold and dark cell, with water dripping
KELSO: Wow. That's even worse. Hey, girlfriends sometimes make out together, right?
HYDE: Yeah, usually right after long, sweaty pillow fights.
ERIC: Yeah, man, it happens all the time.
KELSO: All right!
Donna comes in. Kitty is vigorously putting away the dishes
DONNA: Hey, Mrs. Forman. Is Eric home?
KITTY: Eric? Oh, you mean my son, the map giver. I don't know, and I don't care.
DONNA: Mrs. Forman, are you okay?
KITTY: Oh, I am just freakin' fine!
DONNA: What happened?
KITTY: Well, you know I love my family. It's just sometimes I want to get in the
car and run 'em all over. They forgot my birthday.
DONNA: I'm gonna go kick Eric's ass right now!
KITTY: No. I mean, it's one thing when they don't notice when I get my hair done differently, which they don't, but this is my birthday. Oh, I don't know. Maybe I expect too much.
DONNA: No, Mrs. Forman, you have every right to be mad. In fact, you should be madder. You're, like, the best mom in the world.
KITTY: Yeah! Thank you, Donna. I just wish my own family would say that once in a while. Oh, sweetie, that's not your breakfast, is it?
KITTY: Oh. Ahahaha! Why don't you just let me make you some nice waffles instead?
DONNA: Oh, cool. I love frozen waffles.
KITTY: Oh, honey. No, no, no, no. I make my waffles from scratch.
DONNA: Those bastards!
Jackie and Kelso are commenting on other girls
JACKIE: Now, would you look at her boobs?
KELSO: I am. And it's... it's disgusting. I mean, what is she thinking, packing in those sweet melons like that? I can't even look away.
JACKIE: You know, Michael, I have to say, I'm really enjoying our new friendship together. I love spending time with you.
KELSO: Me too. Do you wanna go to your house and have a nice, sweaty pillow fight?
JACKIE: Okay (they leave)
FEZ (walking up to Caroline): Hello, Caroline.
CAROLINE: Oh, hi, Fez.
FEZ: So, hey, listen, just, uh-just curious um... do you sometimes choke yourself?
CAROLINE: Yeah. But I only do it because I love you more than anything in the world.
FEZ: Okay, I'm good with that. I'll get you a soda, lover. Don't forget to breathe while I'm gone.
HYDE: Hey, so how's it going with "Mental Mary"?
FEZ: I owe you an apology, Hyde. She is crazy. But she's crazy for me.
Eric and Red are standing in the kitchen talking
RED: Yeah. Oh! Here she comes.
Kitty walks in and Red and Eric start to scrub. She breezes past them into the living room
ERIC: Oh, my God. She didn't even look at us. I don't think I've ever seen Mom so mad. Have you?
RED: Not since she stopped drinking.
RED: Nothing. Look, obviously your mother's very upset about something. And desperate times call for desperate measures. For the last 10 years she's been asking us to do something and every time we say no. Because what she wants is the most horrible thing in the world.
ERIC: I won't do it.
RED: Oh, you will do it. And you will like it!
THE SQUARE DANCE HALL
Kitty, Red, Eric and Donna walk in, dressed in cowboy clothes. Kitty is looking very happy
ANNOUNCER: Need a partner Turn the partner by the right hand round
KITTY: I can't believe we're finally square dancing. Oh, this is so much fun.
RED: It looks like "Hee-Haw" puked in here.
KITTY: Come on, honey, let's dance.
ERIC: Oh, my God. This is awful.
DONNA: She made me waffles. Now promenade, you son of a bitch!
ANNOUNCER: Bow to your partner corners, all
Circle to the left go around that hall
Circle to the left all around you go
When you're there and then
Do an allemande left with the corner maid
Do-si-do with a partner there
Then start by the left in the middle
Go all the way around and then pick up your partner with an arm around
Start a Promenade and go around that town
Then when you're there, ladies you backtrack
Go the other way around
Meet a Partner
Turn the Partner by the right hand round
And back to the corner for an allemande left
Buck right in for right and left grand
A little later...
ERIC: So, Mom, we found this present we just had to get you. So, happy birthday.
KITTY: Ohh. I thought square dance night was my present.
RED: It is. But we really messed up this year. Well, we're sorry.
KITTY: Ohh (they kiss)(she opens up the present, a mug that says) "World's Darn Tootin'est Mom." Do you really think so?
RED: You're darn tootin' (they kiss again)
KITTY: Okay. Well...I think I've had enough do-si-dos for one night. So, what do
you say we all go home and have hot fudge sundaes?
ERIC: Oh, yes.
RED: Thank God.
Eric and Red are marking calendars
RED: Valentine's Day.
RED: Mother's Day.
RED: Well, I think we got 'em all.
ERIC: Uh, Dad, we forgot her birthday again.
RED: Damn it, Eric, pay attention! Valentine's Day.
RED: Mother's Day.
