Sunday, Bloody Sunday is the 10th episode of Season 1 on FOX comedy That '70s Show.

Synopsis

Kitty's resolve to quit smoking weakens when her mother-in-law comes for a visit. Eric has to entertain his grandmother, so his friends try unsuccessfully to help him with his term paper that's due the next day.

Recap

Eric's family brings his grandmother (Red's mother) to church. To keep the peace, Eric volunteers to watch his grandmother for the day, but Eric also has an 1000 word essay on the U.S. government due the next day. At the same time, Kelso is considering breaking up with Jackie. Also, Kitty Forman has recently quit smoking, but her mother-in-law smokes a lot, and she is very tempted to start it up again.

Throughout the episode, Eric can be seen giving up more and more time he could be using to do his homework in attempts to keep the family happy, such as when she starts saying that Red is wasting his time on Kitty. As a result, Eric ends up having to rub his grandmother's feet. Since he is disgusted with the task, he gets Fez to do it. At dinner, Grandmother continues to insult everyone, seemingly on purpose.

Everyone clears out as fast as they can. Fez and Eric are left, and she decides to spend time with Fez because of the attention he gives her. After dinner, Kitty finally reaches her breaking point and runs into the basement, asking for a cigarette. They quickly give her one before she explodes in anger, but Red comes downstairs. He does not notice the smoke. At the end of the day, Grandmother leaves.
