Colleen, it is sad that the Formans seemed to stop caring where their daughter went. I don't think that's in-character at all. Red would've sent the cops out to find her after her first disappearance.

msstock87 05-05-2017 10:08 PM

I think Red would have been out looking for Laurie too!

MistyMountainHop 05-06-2017 08:30 AM

He might've devoted his life to searching for her, turning That '70s Show into a police drama.

msstock87 05-08-2017 09:11 PM

Haha, that could be interesting!

MistyMountainHop 05-09-2017 09:12 AM

I'd just hope if/when Red found Laurie, they'd both have a wake-up call about her choices.

I'm glad she came back on her own in season 5. :lol:

msstock87 05-10-2017 11:29 PM

I always like to think that Laurie found a good career that she was good at and settled down and was happy.

MistyMountainHop 05-12-2017 08:27 AM

Imagine if she'd gotten her life together while away, and she told no one. :eek: Why would she isolate herself from her family?

msstock87 05-13-2017 11:38 PM

I wished we could have seen her around more.

MistyMountainHop 05-14-2017 07:40 AM

I wanted to see the real Laurie/Fez storyline in season 6. :pout: Laurie continuing to grow and change, and maybe she would've influenced Fez to quit being a perv, take responsibility for it, and make amends (okay, that would've required different writers, but still :P).

msstock87 05-16-2017 12:37 AM

I always though Laurie/Fez actually had potential. It would have been nice to be able to see it play out.

With proper writing. :nod: *can't emphasize that point enough* :lol:

Laurie opening up her own hair salon. That would've been cool.

msstock87 05-16-2017 10:36 PM

Fez could have worked in that salon too!

MistyMountainHop 05-17-2017 07:54 AM

If we go with season-7 Fez, sure. :nod: I don't think he'd truly be happy doing that for his career, though.

But Kitty could get her hair done by Laurie, and she wouldn't end up looking like Harpo Marx. :lol:

msstock87 05-22-2017 08:08 PM

Yeah, that hair she did was....interesting.
