Episode Summary
Eric is ecstatic to have Hyde living in his house because he's doing all of Eric's housework.  That is, until he realises how boring Hyde has become.  The Pinciotti's are fighting a lot, and Donna is worried about divorce.   Red's war buddy visits, and Red is disgusted that the freako pervert gets everything he wants, while he works hard and still doesn't have a freaking corvette.

Those 70's References

+Eric saying that Kitty is "superfly" is a most likely a reference to the popular 1972 movie, Superfly, about a drug dealer who decides to make a load of money and start a new life.  The soundtrack, mostly by Curtis Mayfield, was pretty high on the billboards fore a while there.

+Hyde is wearing a Led Zepelin shirt, which he's worn in at least one other eppy.  For those of you who are, well, morons, Led Zeppelin was one of the biggest rock bands EVER, especially in the 70's.  With songs like "Whole Lotta Love" and the ubiquitous "Stairway to Heaven" (the first song I ever learned to play on guitar, FYI), you really do have to be pretty dense to have never heard of them.

+McHale's Navy, besides making Eric feel sexy, was a television show that ran from 1962-1966.  Eric and Donna were obviously watching reruns of those goofy navy people. 

+Calling Hyde 'Hazel' is funny because Hazel is a maid's name.  The television show Hazel was on the air from 1961-1966, and it was about a maid that ran the household of a businessman's family.  Calling Hyde 'Alice' would also work, because Alice, as everyone on the planet earth knows, is the maid on The Brady Bunch.  Both shows were shown on the air in the 70's, in syndication, I think.

Guest Whores
Red's swinger pal, Bud, is played by Mitch Pileggi.   Gary Owens, as always, does the voiceover during the fantasy sequence.

Clothes I Want
The first two shirts Donna wears; one's black, the other one's blue I think.  Also, the shirt Jackie has one when her and Donna are hanging out in the basement.

Conspiracy Theory
None, since Hyde just isn't the psychotic trouble maker we all know and love in this eppy.

Ooops!
When Fez has pop rocks in his mouth, Jackie is practically hysterical with laughter.  It doesn't look like it fits in with the scene.

A redder shade of hair
Eric's hair is a darkish brown.

Whoreometer
Where are our whores?!?  None in this eppy.
