‘The Good Son’

Season 1, Episode 25 -  Aired July 26, 1999

As a responsible Hyde buckles down, does his chores and studies hard now that he's living with the Formans, Eric is jealous that his parents seem to like their guest more than him.

Quote from Jackie

Donna: So my parents are fighting all the time and they want me to choose sides. But I can't because they're both idiots. I don't know. I mean, I really think they're gonna get a divorce.
Jackie: Oh, my God, Donna, I am so sorry. But you know what? That very thing happened to a good friend of mine and now she has twice as much stuff, twice as much clothes, and her parents even fought over who got to buy her a car.
Donna: I mean, you're right, Jackie. This whole divorce thing could actually work to my advantage.
Jackie: Exactly.
Donna: Yeah, I just have to make it very clear that my love is contingent on how much they buy me.
Jackie: Why am I even talking to you about this? You have a great handle on it.
Donna: Excuse me, um, Jackie, when exactly did you lose your soul?
Jackie: Um... cheerleading camp.


Quote from Kelso

Fez: It is popping. Help me. It is popping in my mouth.
Jackie: Fez, they're Pop Rocks, okay? That's what they do. They pop.
Kelso: Jackie, you know what would be cool to do with these in your mouth?
Eric: Oh, Donna, look, everyone's here. And I thought we'd be all alone. Phew.
Fez: Oh, I get it. They want to make out.
Kelso: [gives Eric the Pop Rocks] Psst. For her pleasure.

Quote from Red

Bull: Hey, Red, I noticed in the paper that your plant's closing down.
Red: Yeah, you can't compete with those damn foreign cars. I tell you, if I'd seen this coming I'd have shot a little straighter during the war.

Quote from Red

Red: I want a big TV. A big one.
Eric: This one's on sale.
Red: That's last year's model. And my TV's gonna be new.
Hyde: What about that one?
Red: No remote. My TV's gotta have a remote. Oh, look at this. Twenty-six-inch screen. I didn't even know they made them that big.
Eric: Dad, your old TV wasn't that big.
Red: No. But my new TV's gonna be that big.

Quote from Hyde

Hyde: Wow. Thanks, Mrs. Forman. You know, we never had waffles at my house. My mom always said a waffle iron was a luxury. Like, uh, pillow cases or not getting hit.

Quote from Eric

Kitty: Steven, would you like maple syrup or blueberry syrup?
Hyde: You have syrup? Man, I love it here.
Eric: And we love having you here, man. You're like the brother I never had. I mean, I have a sister, but I hate her. So, this is great.

Quote from Kitty

Kitty: Oh, okay. Now, here I brought you a sandwich to help you study.
Hyde: Oh, thanks, Mrs. Forman.
Kitty: Eric, Steven is studying. Don't bother him. Why don't you and Donna go up to your bedroom?
Eric: Okay.
Kitty: I mean, no. No. Bad idea. Just go outside to a well-lit supervised area and talk politely like decent young adults.
Eric: Gee whiz, that sounds super, Mom.

Quote from Fez

Kelso: Okay, you're done cleaning the garage. Let's play some ball.
Hyde: Hang on, man. I gotta take out the trash.
Kelso: You know, Hyde, seeing you work hard and take pride in what you do I lost a lot of respect for you, man.
Fez: You used to be my hero. My lazy American hero.

Quote from Eric

Eric: Don't listen to them, Hyde. I think it's great you're doing all my chores.
Red: Whoa, Eric, great job on the garage.
Eric: Thanks. [off Hyde's look] Hyde did it.
Red: Yeah, I should have known. It's actually clean. Nice going.
Hyde: Thanks, Red.
[After Red gives Hyde some money, Eric holds out his hand]
Red: What did you do?
Eric: I... love you.
Red: Well, I love you, too. [shakes Eric's hand and walks away]

Quote from Fez

Eric: You almost done there, Hazel?
Kelso: [laughs] See, that's funny 'cause Hazel is a maid.
Fez: Or you could have called him Alice, too.
Hyde: Shut up, Fez.
Fez: So, pretty tough with that scrubber in your hand, huh?
