That '70s Wiki

Pinciotti vs. Forman is the 3rd episode of Season 4 on FOX comedy That '70s Show.


Both still hurting from their break-up, Eric and Donna fight over "custody" of their friends. And when Red starts spending time with Pastor Dave, Kitty hopes he won't do anything to ruin this new friendship.


Eric throws Donna out of the basement and they start to fight over who gets "custody" of their friends. Donna earns the early advantage by getting cable and promising partial nudity. Eric gets back by telling Bob that the gang loves his jokes, which results in everyone going back to his house.

They settle on making a schedule and trying to buy their friends with fun weekend trips until they eventually decide to act normal around each other and stop tearing the group apart. Red befriends Pastor Dave. Kitty is happy at first, but is later worried when their newfound friendship doesn't involve the two sharing their feelings as she expected it to.
