Those 70's References

+Mrs. Clark is played by Gloria Gaynor who had a big hit in the late 70's with the song she sings for Fez; "I will survive".

+Playing "Freebird" as the last song was pretty much a given in the 70's.  It was the prom song.

+Hyde's mum saying "They're all gonna laugh at you!" before the prom is a reference to the 70's movie Carrie in which a girl with telekinitic powers is taunted until she breaks.  Her mother says the same thing before her prom.

+The pose Hyde and Fez do in their prom picture is a spoof of the ubiquitous 70's television show Charlie's Angels.   Tanya Roberts, who plays Midge Pinciotti, was a cast member on the show.

Guest Whores
Fez's music teacher, Mrs. Clark, is played by Gloria Gaynor who was a huge disco singer in the late 70's.  Pam Macy is played by Jennifer Lyons, and Paul Connor guests as Timmy, the guy who chants outside of Donna and Eric's hotel room. If you think Timmy should come back, go here and find out how you can help.

Clothes I want

Not that I would wear any of these, but I think Eric's and Fez's prom tuxes kicked ass, and so did Donna's and Jackie's dresses.

Conspiracy Theory

None in this eppy. 

Ooops!

When Fez is talking about asking his English teacher to the prom, all the guys are struggling not to laugh.  Just watch Eric or Hyde. 

When Eric and Donna are in the hotel room and he covers up the big stain on the bed, he doesn't cover it all the way.  I don't know why, but that's always bothered me.  It's not like the towel wasn't big enough!  Ok, I'll stop.

A Redder Shade Of Hair
Eric's hair is light brown. 

Whoreometer
No whores!

Ass-o-meter
No asses!  There weren't really any Eric and Red scenes, so that explains it.
