** Actually, according to several behind the scenes videos, this show is built on corpsing. Roughly 75% of the laughing fits you see on this show were cases of {{Throw It In}} corpsing right from the very first episode, when the first Circle segment ended with Kutcher, Danny and Topher falling down laughing after Hyde's first "car the runs on water" story.

-->'''Hyde''': Everything you think the Government aren't doing, they are doing, the only thing they didn't do was land man on the moon, [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Spielberg]] shot the whole thing in a Hollywood movie set, that's how he got the job for Film/{{Jaws}}!

** A bit of a RunningGag with Kelso; he always appreciates a good burn, even when he himself is the target.

* ButtCuckooLander: Lots of characters have moments of this (especially when they're in the circle), but Fez and Kelso have the most.

** Upon successfully modifying the system (which wouldn't have been possible in reality), Kelso excitedly predicts that "home computers" are the future. Red dismisses this as nothing more than Kelso being his usual ButtCuckooLander self.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the pilot, Kitty and Red are having a party with a whole houseful of friends. In every other episode, they don't seem to have any friends but Bob and Midge, which explains why they put up with their [[ButtCuckooLander craziness.]] Also Eric, Hyde, and Kelso all refer to each other by their first names, although that could be because the writers wanted to establish them.

* SoundEffectBleep: Twice on the season eight episode "Fun It," with Randy using an actual clown horn ("Find me a really trashy clown hooker with ''long'' legs and a pair of double D ''[honk honk]''" and "Well, kids, looks like you're really in some deep ''[honk honk]''") while imitating the Fatso Burger clown.

* NotSoAboveItAll: In one episode, even Jackie starts giggling like a schoolgirl after explaining to Fez that "penal colony" doesn't mean what he think it does.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Donna dyed her hair blonde, because Laura Prepon did so for a film role.
** [[Creator/CheechAndChong Tommy Chong]] (Leo) was absent for two and a half seasons because of a prison sentence.
** Eric leaves at the end of season seven because Topher Grace was going to be shooting ''Film/SpiderMan3'' at the same time season eight would have been in production (which is why season eight had him 'replaced' with Josh Meyers as Randy).

* SocialServicesDoesNotExist : Edna's gone for weeks before the Formans step in, and although Hyde makes jokes about it, his home life is pretty abusive.

* ThirdLineSomeWaiting: Most episodes have two storylines about the teenagers and one about the adults.
* TotallyRadical: Pastor Dave.
* TrialBalloonQuestion: Eric (secretly) asks Donna to marry him at one point, and Eric asks Bob what he would do if they were engaged. Bob's answer was [[IllKillYou less than favourable]], so they decide to keep the secret.
* TrueCompanions:
** Despite problems often prone to tear them apart (such as [[spoiler: Eric and Donna breaking up, or Jackie and Hyde breaking up]]), Eric and his friends pretty much always stay together. [[spoiler: Even as Eric [[PutOnABus left for Africa]]]]
** An interesting variant occurs with Jackie, who wasn't really part of the group at first and was only tolerated by the others because she was Kelso's girlfriend. It was only after Hyde starting burning her, Fez started worshipping her, Donna became closer friends with her and Eric realized that she pissed Laurie off that she became a full part of the circle.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Bob & Midge, and later Bob & Jackie's mom Pam. Eric & Donna are portrayed as this, with characters frequently commenting on the relationship as such. Averted with Bob's relationship with the more average Joanne, with whom he's more evenly matched, just after Midge leaves.



* TheUnReveal
* VandalismBackfire: After Jackie breaks up with him, Kelso tries writing a song to win her back. Eventually, he annoys Eric into taking his guitar and smashing it.
-->'''Eric:''' Well, isn't that funny?
-->'''Kelso:''' You know what's even funnier? That was ''your'' guitar! Burn!
* TheVamp: Laurie, Eric's slutty older sister, is nicknamed "the witch" and "the Devil".
-->'''Red:''' Eric, what have I told you about calling your sister "The Devil"?
-->'''Eric:''' It's offensive [[InsultToRocks to the Devil]]?
** Played hilariously in one episode where the family is playing a game called ''Church'' Rummy with the Youth Minister at their church and Laurie shows her cards: 6, 6, and 6.

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnReveal:
** Every time Fez is asked where he comes from, he always answers with a joke or a sarcastic remark.
** Fez's real name has also never been revealed, as instead of saying it, people either call Fez something else or stop and ask how the name is pronounced. When Fez's friend from his country comes to visit he never calls Fez by any name.
