## 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.

*** Really, though, put yourself in Red's place. You're struggling just to make ends meet, and you've always got a house full of screwup teenagers (dropping a bowling ball onto the couch that breaks the TV, as just ONE example, and TVs cost a LOT more in the 70s than they do now). They make noise, smoke dope, and eat all your food. Wouldn't you be annoyed with them?

** What I don't get is why there is so much drama toward the end of Season 5, when Eric and Donna decide to move to Madison after graduation. Aren't kids ''supposed'' to move out when they finish high school? Hasn't Red said many times over the years that Eric's gone when he's done? I would think they'd be packing Eric's bags for him. Kitty takes it hard because Eric's a momma's boy, but Red should have been more accepting about it.
