"Government pawns and missing limbs – that's amore
—Hyde on Veterans' Day

Jackie Bags Hyde is the 8th episode of Season 3 on the FOX comedy That '70s Show.


Red and Bob throw competing Veterans' Day barbeques, while Jackie and Hyde go on a date.


It is Veteran's Day and Red prepares for his annual Veteran's Day barbecue only to find that Bob is throwing one, as well. This fuels a rivalry over who could have the best barbecue on Veteran's Day. While this goes on, Jackie still tries to win over Hyde. This time, she does so by bringing Chip as her date to make Hyde jealous. Eric confronts Donna on what her father is doing and she insults him and his father. Hyde talks to Chip and they have a laugh over Jackie's nature. Then Chip takes it too far when he calls Jackie a bitch. This earned Chip a punch in the face and a happy Jackie. Kitty helps Hyde realize that he does like Jackie and he ends up taking her on their first date. They share their first date but don't really have much of spark here.

The barbecue battle is still raging and it takes Donna to tell everyone the real truth of why the barbecue was thrown. Bob was going bankrupt and he wanted one last blowout as a big shot before everyone realized he failed. Feeling remorse, the Formans bring their barbecue over to the Pinciotti's to console Bob. This brings much joy to the Bob and he feels better. Red apologizes to Bob and Eric apologizes to Donna. The episode ends with a drunken Fez and Kelso seeing a pink horse as a result of being drunk.

Hyde's haiku

My heart aches with pain
When I see you I vomit
Die away from me


DonnaYou are to Hyde what Fez is to you
JackieThat's ridiculous, Fez and I will never happen. Oh god. Steven and I will never happen
―Wrong on both counts

“Jackie get your car we’re going on a freaking date “
