|Behind the scenes|
"Your Time Is Gonna Come" (5.13)
Burt Sigurdson is the husband of Beatrice Sigurdson and the father of Kitty Forman. His grandchildren include Eric Forman and Laurie Forman. Burt portrays a particularly shy and soft old man and usually tries to avoid his wife's yelling and insulting by lying to her, telling her that he is "going for a smoke", though Burt tells Eric that he doesn't smoke. He also is seen pretending to sleep to avoid trouble with his wife. Burt died while he was outside hiding from his wife in the episode Your Time Is Gonna Come, but minutes later he was found by Eric lying on the pavement and not moving. He was then rushed to the hospital immediately, followed by Eric's friends.
