While Eric Forman is swiping beer for his best friends Donna Pinciotti, Michael Kelso, and Steven Hyde, his parents Red and Kitty hint that he may be getting the old Vista Cruiser. Now Eric can drive all of his friends – including the new foreign exchange student, Fez – to a Todd Rundgren concert in Milwaukee. A minor snag occurs when Kelso's obnoxious girlfriend, Jackie Burkhart, finds out and invites herself along. An even bigger snag occurs when Red tells Eric that he can't drive the car out of Point Place.
Eric's 17th birthday is coming up and he really doesn't want a party. Unfortunately, it's extremely obvious that Kitty is planning a surprise party against his wishes – she's even invited his older sister Laurie home from college for the event. Eric enlists Laurie's help in calling off the party while Kelso naively tries to attract her interest. And Donna, who's unsure about the state of her relationship with Eric, gets advice from Jackie on what to get him for a gift.
President Ford comes to Point Place; Red is chosen to ask him a question, but struggles as he tries to speak. Eric and the guys welcome the President by streaking. Donna has to wear an American flag jumpsuit Bob gave her.
Red's hours at the plant are cut, so he fills his free time fixing things around the house, much to Kitty's dismay. Donna beats Eric at basketball, which sets off series of contests between them. Midge and Kitty each give their kids some pointers on harmonious relationships. The guys tease Kelso for being "pig-whipped" by Jackie.
With her parents going to the Playboy Club over the weekend, Donna drops Eric some unsubtle hints that she wants to hang out alone with him. Unfortunately, Eric is so preoccupied with getting a job at the new Fatso Burger that he completely misses her signals. Kelso gets the idea to throw a toga party at the Pinciotti house, but Donna's less than enthused about the prospect. As for Eric, he quickly finds that work eats up a lot of his free time.
Eric skips school with Donna, Hyde, and Kelso for the first time in his life. Unbelievably, the gang finds a keg in the middle of the road and sees it as a sign that they should throw a party. Problems arise, however, when they all realize that there's no beer tap after the party is in full swing. Meanwhile, Red and Bob have their suspicions about what the kids are up to and launch a full scale search of Point Place.
The kids decide to go to a disco but Steven doesn't know how to dance so Mrs. Forman teaches him to dance. Mr. Pinciotti walks in on them in a compromising position and believes they're having an affair. Kelso gets jealous of Fez because he thinks he's putting the moves on Jackie.
Eric and Donna go to the drive-in. Eric doesn't want Kelso and Jackie to go because they'd be competition but Donna invites them anyway. Fez's house parents think he's listening to the devil's music (a copy of Kiss' Destroyer album). Red and Kitty spend the evening out and almost get arrested.
Laurie comes home for Thanksgiving with her friend Kate. Eric is annoyed that he'll have to give up his room for their guest, until he sees how hot Kate is. Jackie alerts Donna to the trouble she could be facing now that a college girl is sleeping in Eric's bed. Kitty tries vainly to avoid her mother-in-law's phone calls as she prepares for Thanksgiving dinner.
Red's mother spends a Sunday with them and drives everyone crazy, except Fez. She seems to have a certain fondness for him.
Eric has a new friend and Steven and Kelso can't stand it. Steven doesn't like him because he's rich and Eric doesn't give him a ride home anymore because Buddy has a Trans Am. Kelso, on the other hand, seems like a worried spouse. Eric starts to feel uncomfortable around him however when Buddy makes a move on him. Buddy apparently thought that Eric was also gay. And Red makes his first sale.
Red gives Eric 40 bucks to buy a Christmas tree and says that he can keep the change for his party. So Eric, Hyde and Kelso cut down a tree off the interstate and keep the money. They spend the money on beer and Kelso buys Jackie a Christmas present. Laurie spikes the punch with rum and Jackie's friend's are all attracted to Fez all of the sudden. Red has to work on Christmas Eve and not long after he gets home cops show up at his door telling him that his Christmas tree was illegally obtained and that they have to confiscate it. Also Hyde has a thing for Donna.
Jackie dumps Kelso after he makes out with Pam Macy and invites everyone but him to her parent's ski cabin for the weekend. Eric, excited about what this could mean for him and Donna, pays no attention to Kelso's whining about being left behind or Red's tips about driving in the snow. He doesn't realize that Hyde keeps hitting on Donna and Kelso plans on following them to the lodge. Also, Kitty gets mad at Red over a past indiscretion and Fez has his first experience with snow.
When Eric scratches the car, Red suspends his driving privileges, so the gang has to walk everywhere. That is, until Kelso's cousin lends him a car. They get arrested though because the car was reported stolen. With one phone call, Kelso calls Jackie and she tells him that she'll have sex with him once he gets out of prison. The whole incident was a mix-up and the gang is released.
Kitty thinks that it would be a good idea if Red and Eric become friends. She forces Eric to invite Red to go with the gang to a wrestling event in Kenosha. Bob tags along and seeks help from Fez and Hyde over Midge's decision to start therapy. And Jackie is super nice to Kelso now that they've done the deed.
Valentine's Day is coming up, so Eric decides to ask Donna out on their official first date and give her his class ring. She breaks her study date with Hyde in order to go, leading Hyde to realize he only has one last chance with her. Red and Kitty discover they don't have that much in common with Bob and Midge anymore. And Jackie explains to Kelso how things are going to work now that they've "proven their love" to each other.
Since no one else is around, Jackie confides in Eric that she thinks she might be pregnant. Eric passes the news on to Donna, who tries to get Jackie to tell Kelso. The incident inspires Donna to go on birth control pills. Her decision inadvertantly causes Eric a lot of grief when Bob and the Formans find out.
It's career day and the gang must spend the day working with their parents. Eric goes to the hospital with Kitty and is amazed at all she has to deal with every day. Fez accompanies Hyde and interviews cafeteria lady "Gross Edna" while mother and son feud.

As for the adults, they struggle with how to respond to Midge's idea for her future career.

David was an awkward kid the last time Eric saw him, but now he's a hunk who likes reading Donna's short stories. Also, Laurie starts hitting on Kelso out of boredom.
The guys paint a pot leaf on the water tower and Kelso falls off trying to fix it because everyone thinks it looks like the finger. Instead of going to the hospital they go to Eric's cause his mom's a nurse. When Eric goes to get her he walks in on his parents having sex. Having trouble sleeping and not being able to look his parents in the eyes leads his parents to believe he's on drugs.

Eric catches Jackie kissing Todd, her boss, but instead of telling Kelso, he holds it over her head. Jackie decides to tell Kelso about it herself, as well as telling him that Eric knew all about it. Both of their plans backfire on them. Kitty feels neglected and worries about becoming a Corvette-widow when Red spends all his time with his new car.
While trying to come up with a quote for the yearbook, the gang recalls how they met for the first time. They go through the times when they each met each other, no matter how embarrassing or stupid they were. They also try to work out a saying to put under each of their pictures. Kelso finally comes up with the perfect quote for them all, "It's been a long, strange journey...in Forman's basement!" The gang also realizes how strong their friendship is.
It's Prank Day according to Kelso, who manages to trick his friends twice with his stunts. The guys' attempt to retaliate backfires horribly when Red triggers their prank instead. But rather than venting his wrath on Eric, Red joins the prank war to show the boys how it's done. Meanwhile, Jackie throws an impromptu slumber party to cheer Donna up on her parents' wedding anniversary.
When Red and Kitty go out of town, Eric takes the Corvette out and lets his date drive. She manages to get it all dirty and Eric scrambles to get it clean in time because his parents are coming home early. Jackie and Donna snoop around in Casey Kelso's room while he's away, and discover that Michael likes to hang out there.
Kitty plans a surprise birthday party for Hyde's 18th birthday. She recruits Jackie and Fez as decorators because of their feminine creativity (much to Donna's annoyance). Eric, Donna, and Kelso decide to steal a street sign for Hyde's present. But Hyde doesn't want to celebrate because he thinks this means he'll have to move out of the Formans' house.
Fez fantasizes about several musical numbers featuring himself and the rest of the gang while he gets ready for a school concert.
When Eric finds out that Casey is taking Donna to a motel, he decides to show up to make sure she doesn't do anything she'll regret. Bob's divorce from Midge comes through, he mentions marriage to Joanne, who totally freaks out. Naturally, Red and Kitty are called upon to advise their neighbors, but unfortunately they aren't offering the same advice. And Kelso stalks Jackie at the mall to prevent her from kissing anyone else.
Kitty decides to throw a neighborhood barbecue after she wins a year's worth of hot dogs. Eric is upset when he learns Casey is invited, so he devises a convoluted plan to make Casey look bad in front of Donna. Kelso and Jackie seek relationship advice from Cosmo to uncover the root of their problems. Fez can't get past second base with Rhonda; Hyde's fed up with how the guys talk about the girls all the time.
Kitty and Eric go to the Hub after a dentist appointment and catch Donna (who's drunk) skipping school with Casey. Neither Bob nor Joanne can exert any authority over Donna, so a frustrated Red intervenes while everyone watches. Meanwhile, Jackie suggests that Kelso kiss another girl so that they can reconcile. And Hyde and Fez try to decide what to do with some dead fish that they stole.
Donna has had enough of the Golden State. She misses Eric, who, although she doesn't know it, is headed West - despite his parents' objections - to declare his love and bring her home. Kelso, however, has decided he has found the woman of his dreams in Annette, who is beautiful and believes in him. Back in Wisconsin, Jackie is a changed woman, thanks to a change in boyfriends.
As punishment for Donna going away to California, Bob transfers her to a Catholic School, which means that Donna won't get to see Eric as much. Eric is determined to fight for their right to be together, until he sees Donna in her new school uniform. Jackie and Hyde get caught making out in the basement; Eric and Donna try to convince them to tell Kelso what's going on.
Kitty joyfully announces that she's pregnant, but the reaction that she gets from Red leaves a lot to be desired. Eric and Donna continue their campaign to get Jackie and Hyde to tell the truth about their relationship to Kelso. A trip to the DMV seems to present the perfect opportunity, but Fez is the one who seizes the day rather than Hyde.
Kitty's parents arrive from Arizona, after being told that Kitty has some wonderful news to share with them. Kitty's news isn't what she thought it would be, and throws a damper on the high spirits. Donna learns a thing or two from Bea about getting people to do things, while Eric and Red learn a thing or two from the World Book about "lady problems." Kelso works out his feelings about Jackie and Hyde's relationship.
In a romantic moment, Donna presents Eric with a ring, much like the promise ring that he gave her, and caused their break up. For Donna, the ring symbolizes their enduring love and committment; for Eric, it symbolizes ugliness. To protect Donna's feelings, he decides not to say anything, but the secret gains a life of its own. Kitty is determined not to let menopause affect her life, but has a hard time living up to her committment.
The kids prepare to make a weekend college visit to the University of Wisconsin. There's only one snag in the plan: Donna tells Eric that Bob will not let her go to UW. Instead he wants her to visit Marquette, a small Catholic college. So Donna and Jackie visit Marquette, where Jackie spends her time worrying about Hyde; the guys go to UW with Red and a very irritable Kitty.
When Eric decides to buy Donna a meaningful gift, he ends up getting her an engagement ring. But after discussing it with the guys, he realizes they are too young and the ring was a bad idea. Unfortunately, Eric already told Donna he got her a surprise and on their special evening out, he's put on the spot and forced to make the biggest decision of his life. Meanwhile, in an attempt to lift menopausal Kitty's spirits, Red gets her a dog: Schotzy.
Eric hides the fact that he's failing math from Red because he wants to prove that he's starting to get serious about his future. Red is so impressed by his son's apparent maturity that he bumps Laurie from the adults' table at Thanksgiving and gives her seat to Eric. This makes Eric think that the time may finally be right to announce to his engagement to Donna. However, the woman that Kelso brings as his date to the Formans' dinner complicates this decision.
When Jackie's father is arrested for bribery, Kelso thinks she'll come running back to him. But when Hyde and Kelso get into a brawl over Jackie, Kelso accidentally shoots Hyde with a BB gun and all hell breaks lose. Donna and Eric argue over how Hyde should deal with Jackie's pain. Meanwhile, Fez realizes he has a crush on his boss at the DMV.
The S.A.T. scores have come in and everyone does significantly better than Eric. He's particularly upset by Donna's high score and blames her for distracting him during the exam. As a result, Eric enlists Red to help him buckle down and stay away from Donna until he retakes the test. Meanwhile, Kelso discovers that he may have a bright future and Jackie pushes Hyde towards a college career.
When Fez decides to introduce his new girlfriend, Nina, to the gang, Kitty offers to throw a dinner party for the event. The guys resent being dragged to a dinner party, while the girls are excited at the thought of a grown-up night.
Jackie recruits the Formans to help clean out her family's mountain cabin, but decides it best not to ask for Hyde's assistance, instead telling him she is attending a doll expo. With Jackie going away, Hyde seizes the opportunity to use Jackie's cabin and invites Kelso and Fez. Donna and Eric get lost on the way to the cabin and spend the trip fighting. Hyde's plan goes wrong when Kelso gets his hand, holding his stash, stuck in a vase just as Jackie and the Formans arrive.
Annette, Kelso's girlfriend from California, comes to Point Place to visit him. The entire gang is shocked to learn how closely her personality resembles Jackie's, while Jackie tries to conceal her jealousy from Hyde. Meanwhile, Kitty's parents show up unexpectedly and announce that they'll be moving in for a while. This unpleasant situation gets far worse when Eric finds his grandfather collapsed in the driveway.
Hyde's depressed that Jackie still seems to have feelings for Michael. Annette's not happy either, because Kelso seems to still be attached to Jackie. And Kitty takes to her bed, because she feels her mother doesn't love her.
When Bob goes out of town, Eric and Donna decide to "practice" being married at her house. The gang is excited because they think this is a chance to party all weekend at the Pinciotti's place, until Eric and Donna are forced to set them straight. Meanwhile, Kitty goes to the jewelers to pick up a ring she thinks Red got her as a surprise. But she discovers the real surprise: it's actually an engagement ring for Donna.
Red is angry that Donna and Eric are engaged, so he gives Eric the silent treatment, leaving it up to Donna to try to talk to him. Fez finally does it with Nina; he's happy that he finally did it, but afterwards, things aren't so great. Kelso gives Jackie a birthday present, but insists that he's not trying to do anything; Hyde didn't even know it was her birthday.
Things are still bad between Red and Eric, so Kitty signs them up for the Point Place Paul Bunyan Pioneer Days Jamboree. The estranged men must work together in order to beat Charlie and Mitch, an obnoxious father/son team who have won the past two years. Meanwhile, Hyde doesn't understand why Leo hasn't called him back to work in a while. He takes the gang to the Foto Hut only to find the place has been completely cleaned out.
Everyone has their own reasons for going to the job fair. Eric needs a full-time job now that Red refuses to pay for college. The Photo Hut is closed, so Hyde's looking for work too. Fez wants to make out with Nina at the DMV booth while "Hot Donna" will be signing autographs at the radio station's booth. And after failing to flirt his way out of a parking ticket, Kelso fears that his good looks will fade and that he'll need a practical job like other 'uggos'.
The Formans discover that Jackie has been sleeping in Hyde's room since neither of her parents are home. The best solution that everyone can come up with is for Jackie to move in with Bob and Donna, but unforunately Jackie doesn't appreciate everyone's pity. Meanwhile, Red gives Eric a hard time when he finds out that his son sleeps nude. And Fez has dinner at Nina's house, where he learns that her parents don't want her dating her "third world friend".
The Pinciottis learn very quickly that living with Jackie is going to be difficult. Kelso swipes Jackie's panties to taunt Hyde, who has his revenge when Kelso gets a job at the hotel kitchen where Hyde works. Eric receives notice that he must return Donna's engagement ring if he can't make a payment by Friday. His visits to the jewelry store reveal that there's bad blood between Fez and Fenton, the jewelry guy.
Nina breaks up with Fez, although he doesn't realize it until the gang sets him straight. It turns out that Nina thinks Fez is too needy. As for the others, they decide to rejuvenate their dull lives by finding another friend to hang out with. Kitty has one candidate in mind, but she has an ulterior motive.
Hyde turns down a hot nurse out of faithfulness to Jackie, then demands that Jackie not hang out alone with Kelso any more. The recent nurse convention at the hotel inspires Fez to have an erotic dream about a nurse…who turns out to be Kelso! Naturally, Kelso freaks out, and he turns to his ex for comfort. Meanwhile, Eric accepts a job at the dog food factory where Joanne works in order to earn enough money to marry Donna.
Hyde cheats on Jackie because he thinks she still loves Kelso. After realizing his mistake, he apologizes to her but she breaks up with him. Red and Kitty dare Eric and Donna to get married by graduation in order to pressure them into calling off their engagement. Their plan works, but a little better than they expected. Fez refuses to give Mitch Miller his driver's license, so Mitch digs up dirt on him and Kelso. Laurie moves back home, determined to make up for her past wrongs.
The Formans are horrified when they realize that Red has gone fishing - he only does that when he's really angry. When he finally returns, Red has his final say on Eric and Donna's decision to move. Meanwhile, Kelso, Hyde, and Fez decide to paint obscene pictures on the water tower as their senior prank. Hyde and Kelso's arguing over Jackie lands Kelso in the hospital, leaving Fez to face the police alone and Jackie to face her feelings about who she wants to be with.
The gang will be split in half when high school graduation is over: Eric and Donna are all set to move into their Madison apartment, while poor Fez is about to be deported. The love triangle amongst the others grows more heated as Hyde and Kelso compete over an indecisive Jackie. But this tense situation is put aside so that the six friends can go camping together the night before graduation. Laurie tags along and dramatically changes Fez's life. Back at the Forman house, Red gives Kitty medication to help her deal with her depression over Eric's imminent departure.
When Jackie finds out Kelso has a new girlfriend she chooses Hyde over him, but--surprise!--he has someone new too. Eric is living with his parents to help out his dad, but all he wants is to be with Donna in Madison. Meanwhile, Kitty still tries to convince Eric he should stay with them and not go to Madison. Eric finally realizes that he can't go away to school, but is surprised to find Donna still plans to. Kelso also finds a problem when he drinks eggs only to find out he is allergic to them.
Kelso decides to help Jackie and Hyde get back together with hilarious results. And Eric realises that the sadder Donna becomes, the more she wants sex. Kitty decides to help Red with his new doctor-imposed diet.
It's Eric's 18th birthday and nothing is going the way he wants it. He expects a birthday breakfast and suprise party from his mom, but Kitty is too preoccupied with resuming her sex life with Red. Plus, it's Donna's last day before moving to Madison for college and Eric is struggling with letting her go. In the end, Donna manages to salvage the day with the gift she gives him at the bus station.
No one in the gang believes Kelso's claim that he hooked up with Brooke, a beautiful and conservative older girl, at a Molly Hatchet concert. Much to Kelso's shock, Brooke denies knowing him and rejects all of his advances. Brooke's presence also disrupts Jackie and Hyde's relationship when Jackie asks for his opinion about Brooke's looks. Also, Fez decides to pursue college-bound virgins while Eric learns of an interesting collection kept at the local library.
A representative from INS is coming to find out if Fez's marriage to Laurie is for real. To avoid deportation, Fez must stay with the Formans and get on Red's good side. Donna encourages Kelso to take responsibility for his actions by talking to Brooke about the baby. But for some reason Brooke decides to let him off the hook.
After Eric loses his job, he finds himself up for the same waiting job as Kelso at the Holiday Hotel; Donna and Jackie send newly single Bob a box of fudge to cheer him up; Red tries to help Fez and Laurie get divorced.
The cheerleaders kick Jackie off the squad, so she invites the gang to the dance to give her popularity a boost. Kelso visits Brooke at the library in an effort to start a friendship with her. Christmas Eve is going to be "Hot Donna's" first shot at being a DJ at the station she works at. And Kitty signs Red up to be the mall's Santa Claus, sparking a rivalry between him and Bob.
Eric sleeps in after a late night playing poker with the guys after work. However, he tells Donna and Kitty that he was working the entire time so that he can get their sympathy. Fez volunteers to drive Red to the doctor's office but receives no gratitude in return. Brooke and Kelso go on an awkward double date Hyde and Jackie. Later, Brooke is introduced to Roy, who's instantly smitten.
It's Kelso's first day as a police cadet and he gets to drive around in a police cruiser with a real cop. His first stop is the Forman house to break up a domestic disturbance (Fez and Laurie are fighting over her sex life). The encounter leaves Fez burning mad, but he gets a chance for revenge when Kelso leaves the cruiser unattended. Meanwhile, Eric attempts to fix the water pipes and lawn mower in order to prove to Red that he's not a failure. And Jackie joins a Big Sister program at school.
Kelso convinces the guys to help him break into the police academy's office; Fez prepares for his INS test.
Kelso is ecstatic when Brooke asks him to be involved in her doctor's meeting for their upcoming baby, but he runs into a problem when he can't find his van. Hyde is exactly the opposite of ecstatic when Jackie redecorates his room with bright colors and lights that looks like a girl's room. Eric and Donna also set out to discover (in Kelso's van) what Mount Hump is like. Red is also upset that Bob gave him shoes, until he reluctantly begins to like them.
Red goes to the heart doctor and finds out that they are going to send a psychiatrist to his house to find out what is causing his stress. Kitty, who believes they always blame the wife, isn't too happy about it, so she starts to act weird. Meanwhile, Kelso introduces his co-worker, Suzy (Alyson Hannigan) to the gang. He says that he likes finally having a girl as a friend, without liking her as a girlfriend. Fez tells Kelso that he likes her. As Kelso is about to tell Suzy about Fez, she tells Kelso that she likes him. So Kelso tricks both of them. He tells Suzy she'll be on a date with him, and tells Fez he'll be on a date with Suzy. They both find out and are upset with Kelso, especially Fez.
Before a romantic evening with Eric, Donna realizes that she's missed taking one of her birth control pills. Both of them completely freak out and seek out Kitty's advice. Fez is still extremely angry about losing Suzy to Kelso, so he "dumps" Kelso and returns everything his former friend ever gave him. Everyone in the gang tries to console the unhappy couple while Suzy plots to reunite them.
After the recent pregnancy scare, Bob and the Formans insist that Eric and Donna go for counseling at the church. During their first session, Eric and Donna lie to the minister about having pre-marital sex. Kelso has also been lying lately, telling Brooke that he's doing better at the Police Academy than he actually is. But lying becomes more difficult after there's a fire at the Academy.
Jackie's mother, Pam Burkhart (Brooke Shields) unexpectedly returns from Mexico. Everyone tries to convince Jackie to forgive her mother and welcome her back into her life. However, when Pam starts dating Bob, Donna and Jackie realize that Pam is still a gold-digger. Donna and Jackie agree to do whatever it takes to break their parents up. Kelso is scared to leave for police academy, but the guys force him to go.
When none of the guys will help Donna and Jackie in convincing their parents not to date, they come up with their own plan to try to lure Pam away and prove she doesn't really love Bob. Meanwhile Red's heart monitor keeps going off around Pam prompting Kitty to think Red is "extremely happy" around her.
Donna catches Eric 'taking care of business' in her bathroom and is completely horrified. Afterwards, Eric's friends and family tease him mercilessly and Donna can't even look him in the eye. Amazingly, Eric actually manages to make this embarrassing situation worse when Donna finds out what brought on his need. Meanwhile, Kelso, now calling himself "Mike" and sporting a mustache, goes on a major maturity kick, so Hyde and Fez decide to knock him down a peg or two.
Donna wants to take Eric to a department to register for wedding gifts but he doesn't want to go. Red tells him about the easiest way to get out of shopping: choose the ugliest thing so they think you are bad at shopping, and Eric tries it. Donna falls for it, but figures it out and sends him shopping with a wedding crazed Jackie, which he actually enjoys! Donna gets mad when she finds out and gets an enraged Hyde, who told Jackie not to do wedding stuff, to help her ruin their time. Red reads one of Kitty's "dirty girl" fantasy books, and learns a thing or two. Kelso tries to invent something, but all his thoughts have already been invented.
When the gang sees Mitch at a putt putt course, they laugh it up at his pathetic job until they accidentally hit him in the head with a golf ball. Feeling sorry for him, Eric invites him to join the gang in the basement. But it snowballs from there when Mitch obsesses over Donna. Meanwhile, Pam doesn't see what the big deal is about rejecting Bob's offer to move in together, since she is dating another man.
When Hyde and Red accidentally walk in on Pam and see her topless, they are shocked by her reaction. They try to keep it a secret, but Bob, of all people, spills the beans. Meanwhile, Donna finds out about a girl Eric dated while she was with Casey.
Much to Eric's chagrin, Donna agrees to be Mitch's date to his brother's wedding. While there, Fez meets a beautiful girl and pretends to be rich to impress her, but the big news is the shockwave Mitch makes at the wedding..... Meanwhile, Kelso takes Brooke to a baby class.
When Eric accidentally sees Donna's wedding dress, he unintentionally rips it. But he only makes things worse in an attempt to rectify the mistake. Kelso, Hyde and Fez get a canoe and Red is forced to find a sentimental wedding gift for Eric for his wedding.
When Donna gets a full time job as "Hot Donna" on the radio, she decides that staying in Point Place is the best thing to do. She also buys a very small trailer for her and Eric. While visiting the trailer, the gang is surprised to see Casey Kelso, who is now back in town. The guys continue their plans and have a bachelor party for Eric, who can think of nothing but why Donna wants to stay. The girls also have their own fun at a strip club where they are again surprised to see Casey Kelso as a non-stripping employee who drives a drunk Kitty crazy.
The day of the rehearsal dinner, Eric comes to the realization that he could be holding Donna back if he marries her. He attempts to tell her this when the Formans come visit the mobile home Donna picked out. Although he denies having second thoughts, he drops enough hints to make Donna begin to worry about the wedding herself. Meanwhile, Michael makes a very poor first impression on Brooke's mother; Hyde and Fez try to decide who Eric's best man will be.
Everyone does their best to cheer Donna up after Eric disappeared before the wedding. Midge even shows up to console her daughter, but her arrival causes an awkward scene with Bob and Pam. Also, Hyde lands in the hospital after he takes Donna to the water tower for a talk. While Kitty looks after Hyde, she goes through his medical records and stumbles upon a life-altering piece of news.
A week after Eric and Donna's engagement was called off, they are both on good terms, but have to make big decisions regarding their futures. Donna gets a new look, and Eric decides to take a year off, but to do that he needs to sell Donna's engagement ring to get some money. There's only one problem with his plan: Donna threw it off the water tower. Also, Bob is torn between Pam and Midge, and Red puts pressure on him (only because Kitty pressured Red) to choose between them. However, one of them takes the decision out of Bob's hands.
The Formans invite Hyde's biological father over so that Hyde can finally meet him, and everyone is shocked to discover that he's black. Kelso waits for news from Brooke about her advancing labor, while Fez tries to deal with losing Kelso to a baby. Eric and Donna go to a feminist rally in the park.
Red's job hunt is going nowhere and he begins to wonder when he will find a job. With a year off to do whatever he wants, Eric makes a list of things to do, one of which includes graffiting a closed muffler shop as part of his new bad boy image. But unbeknownst to Eric, Red has found his new job... in the building Eric just graffitied! Kelso has issues with women; now that he's a father to a baby girl, he has a new respect for women that gets him nowhere. And Hyde is pressured by Jackie and Kitty to call his father.
Red's new muffler shop is about to open and he asks Hyde to work for him. This really offends Eric since the shop is called "Forman & Son" and Red didn't even think to ask him. But Hyde has his own dilemma when his dad offers him a job at his record company. Fez is also on a job hunt after quitting the DMV, so Donna helps him apply for work as a shampoo boy.
Hyde starts working at his dad's record company only to learn his job is not as cool as he thought it would be. Kitty, feeling "unneeded, unnecessary and unloved," takes up Tai Chi with Donna and Midge. Seeing an ad in the paper for aspiring artists, Eric tries out for the Cartoon Academy of Fort Lauderdale. And Kelso decides to donate his entire Playboy collection to Fez.
Kitty throws a party in honor of herself to boost her self esteem, but Bob feels that Midge is spending too much time with Wiliam Barnett and they have a fight, causing Midge to lock herself in the bathroom. Eric decides to "moon and trench" Old Man Shinsky's beautiful yard. Kelso, because Eric didn't make him First Lieutenant, takes his revenge on Eric, but that backfires on them both. And Hyde succumbs to the corporate life, which Jackie finds very sexy.
When a hot girl tells Fez she wants to date him, he is delighted. He later finds out the girl was supposed to date Kelso, but blew him off. After Kelso begs, Fez agrees to help him regain his lost mojo. Donna and Jackie learn that play-fighting is an art. And Kitty tries to get Red to be more adventurous in their sex life.
Things are going well for Hyde at work, until he meets his new sister, Angie, and finds that she's not as nice as she seems. She attempts to get Hyde fired, causing him to use his biggest weapon against her; Jackie. Eric tells the gang that he's studying Spanish, but Kitty lets it slip to Fez what Eric really does on Wednesday nights, and Fez just can't keep the secret to himself.
It's Thanksgiving, and while Kitty prepares for the feast, Eric is making plans of his own, and they don't include dinner at home. He wants to go to a Styx concert; the rest of the gang is busy helping Hyde and Angie get ready for the opening of the record store.
Hyde joins the disgruntled group of guys that can say "Kelso Slept With My Sister", much to his displeasure. Donna plugs a calender on the air for Red's muffler shop until she discovers it is full of scantily clad babes on hotrods. Kitty once again tries to teach Jackie how to bake, with disastrous results.
Kelso gives the toys from the Toy Drive to the gang, leaving Kitty with no toys for the kids at the Ladies of Point Place Christmas Party. Jackie is upset that Hyde won't go to the party with her, making her think that he's not as mature as she thought he was. The guys have to come up with a way to get the toys to the party without the kids seeing them being brought in, and Red distracts everyone with an unusual Christmas story.
Jackie's doubts of a future with Hyde come to the breaking point, and she decides to go along with a misunderstanding and pretend to be Donna, engaged to Fez, whom she calls Prince Edwardo. She drags Fez to parties, enjoying the pre-marriage life, until she is caught in the act. Meanwhile, Hyde is bothered by Angie's relationship with Kelso, so Eric steps in to help split them up.
Red reluctantly agrees to take Kitty ice fishing, which doesn't turn out to be as bad as he expected. Kelso accidentally makes a threat on the President, prompting the guys to be paranoid about everyone they meet in an attempt to hide from the government. Donna takes Jackie to a karate lesson that yields unexpected results.
When Donna gets 6 tickets to the Packers game, Eric convinces the gang to give one of them to his dad. Hyde offers to do a ticket stub switch with Kelso and Fez, but neither Kelso nor Fez really gets the concept. At the game, Jackie attempts to made Hyde miserable and an ecstatic Red is actually nice to Eric - until Eric buys a Chicago Bears jersey. Kitty and Bob watch the game together back home.
There's a sexy new intern, "Sizzlin" Sarah, at the radio station that has the guys going crazy. Sarah manipulates the station manager into firing Donna by using Donna's feminism against her. Poor Kitty has the flu and is going to miss meeting Tom Jones at Hyde and Angie's record store, so she makes Red go in her place to get his autograph. And Jackie seeks advice from Fez on talking to Hyde about her true feelings.
Jackie, who's still smarting from her breakup with Hyde, is going to host her own public television show. Hyde suspects that Fez knows what Jackie was trying to tell him at the record store. Eric meets a 36-year-old guy whose pathetic life forces him to reevaluate his own directionless existence. Angie has a hard time understanding how to "burn" someone.
Eric decides to leave town to make a documentary about his life on the road. His car breaks down and he finds Leo. The two go to a truck stop to get something to eat. Kitty, Red, Kelso and Donna set out to find him when Eric doesn't call home. Meanwhile, Fez talks to Jackie and Hyde about their relationship.
When Brooke leaves Betsy in Kelso's care, he's ecstatic. His happiness soon ends when he notices that Betsy cries every time he holds her. Leo's offers to help Kelso with the baby only causes him more grief. Meanwhile, Kitty shows signs of jealousy when Hyde stays with Jackie throughout a car show while Red goes off and forgets about her.
Donna and Eric are in disbelief when Kelso chooses Jackie and Hyde over them to be Betsy's godparents. On the other hand, Hyde and Angie believe there's someone breaking into the store, so Angie places a camera to see who it is. After viewing the tape, they discover it's Fez crashing there at night because his host parents kicked him out since he already graduated. Kitty gives Fez and Kelso the idea to move in together since Kelso's house isn't safe for Betsy and Red wont allow them to stay when she visits.
When Eric realizes he is the only loser with no future in the group, he goes looking for a job, only to find he isn't very good at many things. Kelso and Fez look for an apartment for the two to live together in, and Jackie arranges a dinner party to celebrate her high school graduation.
In preparation for pursuing a teaching career, Eric receives his high school transcripts and discovers that he received an incomplete in gym class. He enrolls in a summer gym course and learns that his new P.E. teacher is none other than Casey Kelso! Kelso and Fez move into their new apartment and compete over who gets the master bedroom. While they do this, Red exacts his revenge for the messes they’ve created at his house over the years.
Kelso considers what to do about his relationship with Angie, and comes to the conclusion that it's time to break up, but he's not sure how to do that. He seeks some advice from Jackie on the matter, but ultimately, the decision is taken out of his hands. Eric is shocked to discover that his college tuition fund is gone, and has to find another way to raise the money. His solution is one that Kitty, Red and Donna have differing opinions on.
Jackie is offered her dream job, but unfortunately, it's in Chicago. She wants to know what her future is with Hyde, but he's unwilling to answer. Kitty and Donna are both still reeling over Eric's new job, and both try, in their own ways, to get him to change his mind. The son of one of Red's buddies from the Marines arrives in Point Place, and the guys take a liking to him when they find out what his dad does now.
As Eric prepares to go to Africa, Kitty is still having problems dealing with his departure. Donna is also having problems; she can't come up with an appropriate going away gift, but some advice from Kitty puts her on the right track. Charlie accidentally sees Kitty naked, and his attempts at apologizing only make things worse. Jackie is still in Point Place after telling everyone she was leaving for Chicago; her attempts to give Hyde one last ~last~ chance don't quite go the way she hopes they would.
Kelso drops Jackie off in Chicago, but she is immediately homesick and reaches out to the gang for companionship. Eric finds out at the last minute that Kitty deliberately hid a letter outlining the vaccination shots he’s required to have before going to Africa for the year. He has his final Circle with the guys only to finally be busted by Red! As Eric says his good-byes to everyone, Hyde talks to Leo about his true feelings for Jackie and decides to follow her to Chicago…with disastrous results.
The eighth season picks up with Kitty and Red discovering their empty nest isn't very empty, even with Eric in Africa. Meanwhile, Hyde returns from Las Vegas, where he went to clear his mind after catching Jackie and Kelso in a compromising position. But when Kelso and Donna tell Jackie that Hyde planned on proposing to her, Jackie tries to win him back, only to discover that what happens in Vegas, doesn't necessarily stay in Vegas.
Things go from bad to worse for Hyde, who discovers that while he was away, Leo nearly put the record store out of business. But Hyde's plan to fire Leo goes up in smoke when he ends up keeping Leo and hiring a new guy, Randy. Meanwhile, in an effort to get over Hyde, Jackie drags Donna and Fez out for a night on the town, but ends up humiliated when she reveals a little too much.
Even though Hyde insists that he doesn't want a bachelor party, the guys throw one for him anyway. Randy puts Fez in charge of creating a way to get Hyde to the party without him knowing what's going on; Fez's plan depends on Kelso, who gets side-tracked by the new girl at the ice cream store.
