*** I think it's implied that he's hard on Eric because he knows Eric has the capacity to be highly successful if he just stops being so lazy, while he dotes Laurie because he knows she's a good-for-nothing slut who will never achieve anything and wants to give her some good times before her unavoidable downfall.

*** This, so very much. Season 4 is pretty much 27 episodes worth of Donna torturing Eric out of some falsely self-righteous outrage; throughout the season she's shown abusing his feelings for her to her advantage, refusing to be with him but also blocking him every single time he tries to get on with his life and constantly flipping between wanting to be his friend and bullying him, and it's all depicted as something we should like her for.

* Hyde meets his dad... then later in the show, Kitty says "Oh, Hyde! That's not your dad after all... this is your dad". Though understandable, because his mother could definitely not have known who his legitimate father was, if the name of the father was on the birth certificate she did know. Yes it's also understandable that she didn't tell him, but it seems to me his deadbeat mother would rather try to get this new rich father's money than to pretend a poor drunkard was Hyde's dad... There are reasonable explanations for this, but what upsets me most is that the writer's would do the same exact storyline twice. It's like they ran out of ideas.
** When Hyde goes to meet his new father, Red, Kitty, and Jackie go too. Hyde goes into his father's office without everyone else, and Kitty and Jackie are upset that he didn't take them to meet his dad for the first time... then very next episode, Hyde meets his father for the first time, which presumably he already did last episode? And they're not even in his father's office this time!
* Night before graduation the gang goes camping, then they're late for graduation. They all know they are to graduate and they graduate though in their own makeshift ceremony. They're seen in their caps and gowns with diplomas... Then several seasons later Eric gets his transcript in the mail saying he can't graduate. What?
* Why would Kelso's baby mama allow Kelso to pick the baby's godparents when he wasn't even really supposed to be included in the baby's life at all?

** Not to mention that Donna is actually considered nice and fun, while Jackie is grating and boring to most of the others.

## The cop shouldn't of had the power to arrest them. While Eric smarted off to him, that's just petty. He should have at least just asked them to get dressed and leave.

* Fair enough, the Hyde thing is reasonable. But I always thought it was weird with Donna after Eric left. They were supposed to get married, the basement would bring up so many memories.

** Well, there was an episode that focussed on Fez having to take a citizenship test to stay in America. Presumably that's when the exchange was over and the other child came home. But Fez's host parents allowed him to stay with them until he graduated high school, after which he got his own apartment with Kelso.

* Midge is portrayed as a victorious feminist, with the voiceover crowd cheering when she throws an attitude at Bob. be she did not have a job, so she was not independant, and her family (mostly Bob) was seen eating sandwiches in the kitchen, denied a hot meal (it sounds sexist, but she has no job, it's the least she can do) because she is having her feminist friends over.

* In "Eric's Corvette Caper" Red busts Eric for stealing his corvette and grounds him for a month. When Eric reveals that he stole the car to impress a girl, Red reduces the punishment to two weeks. Then Hyde and Fez come out and pin the fact that they drank all of Red's beer on Eric. And Eric just ''accepts it''! Why on earth didn't Eric just say "I was gone all night with Red's corvette so I couldn't have drank the beer. You two were the only ones here all night."
** He's grown so used to being treated unfairly that he doesn't bother to fight it any more.

* When Eric and Donna fool around behind a hedge at a Take Back the Night rally, the crowd thinks he's assaulting her and attacks him. The whole time, she just stands there, not speaking a word in his defense, just yelling for him to run. WhatTheHellHero

* In "Eric's Naughty No-no", Eric sees some sex move in a porno film and tries it on Donna, to her disgust. What was it? Hyde and Kelso claim to both have done it, which isn't much of a clue. One might guess he attempted cunnilingus, which I'd consider pretty tame, but it's hard to know what Donna would view as "normal". There was something about a GI Joe in a suggestive position giving a clue?

** Midge is pretty dumb- she doesn't really understand feminism, she just likes having meetings to go to and spending time away from home. So she just parrots what she hears without thinking about whether it makes sense for her. She never thinks about actually getting a job, or really doing anything other than what she's always done. Except now she thinks she's not supposed to have to make supper for her husband.

** Reading between the lines, it's entirely likely that Red has a couple of major {{Freudian Excuse}}s going on. For one thing, keep in mind that Red is a hardcore Republican and that during the time the show is set ''JimmyCarter'' is President. Red's also a devoted Green Bay Packers fan, and apparently they were cellar-dwellers during the time the show was set. Hence why he's in such a bad mood all the time-when RonaldReagan moved into the Oval Office and the Packers started winning championships again, he probably cheered up quite a bit.

** In the episode "We're Not Gonna Take It" she calls Eric a jackass because he asked Bob why Jo fired him. Jo had just broken up with Bob and Donna never told Eric in the first place. Bit of a [[HowIMetYourMother "Grinch"]] and CreatorsPet in [[Tropers/SpiderFan14 my]] opinion.
