Although Donna, Eric, Hyde, Kelso, and Fez all bring something unique to Eric Forman's basement on That '70s Show, the gang pales in comparison to the one and only Jackie Burkhart.
If anything, they should all bow down to the '70s queen portrayed by the one and only Mila Kunis, because she is without a doubt the greatest thing to ever come out of the beloved sitcom. Voted in her yearbook as "Most likely to destroy a talented man's potential," Jackie proves to be the most underrated evil mastermind in TV history, and her talents and powers deserve to be recognized.
So without further ado, let's look at the best Jackie Burkhart quotes that prove she is CLEARLY the best character on That '7os Show.
10 'LOOK, THE SOONER YOU REALIZE I'M A GENIUS, THE BETTER OFF WE'LL BOTH BE'
Don't let the sparkly glossed lips or the perfectly feathered hair fool you. Although Jackie Burkhart may be a total beauty, she's also got some serious brains. In fact, she might even be a straight-up genius, and the sooner you accept this fact the better off you will be. Jackie is an A+ student when it comes to important subjects such as popularity, beauty, and boys. Science? Math? Who cares? When it comes to real-world issues, you go straight to Jackie B., and she will give you all the life advice you will ever need to make it to the top. Why settle for anything less than perfection?
She might even put Einstein to shame when it comes to her brain power.
9 'LOOK, IF I COULD RUN ACROSS THE BEACH INTO MY OWN ARMS, I WOULD'
Jackie Burkhart is not the type of girl who settles for just anyone. She will only accept perfection when it comes to her romantic relationships, which is why the only true match for Jackie Burkhart is... well... Jackie Burkhart. It makes total sense. Because Jackie is sheer perfection and flawless in every way, shape, and form, it only seems right that the best relationship on That '70s Show would be between Jackie and herself.
Donna and Eric who? Hyde and Jackie, what? No, no, no. We all know the real OTP is Jackie x Jackie forever. It's the only potential situation where she won't have to settle. As funny as this quote is, it's also wildly empowering because of the amount of self-love Jackie so confidently displays. We should all learn from Jackie by putting ourselves first before any romantic relationship.
8 'YOU'RE WATCHING ME LIVE MY LIFE, THAT'S BETTER THAN ANY MOVIE'
Jackie knows how interesting and incredible she is. What could be more entertaining than watching her live her life? Honestly. Who cares about any old movie directed by Steven Spielberg or Quentin Tarantino when you can watch Jackie curl her hair or grab a pack of M&M's from the vending machine? Jackie Burkhart caught in the act of doing everyday mundane things is the Citizen Kane of existence. You should feel privileged to get the luxurious opportunity of witnessing Jackie B. live her life. Any four-star film would just pale in comparison, and that is just the honest truth. Whoever disagrees best get out of Point Place Wisconsin as quickly as possible before Jackie finds out.
7 'WHEN I SENT MYSELF THOSE FLOWERS AND READ HOW MUCH I LOVED ME, I FELT SO MUCH BETTER'
Although she might sometimes come across as conceited, if you really dig deep into her character you can see that Jackie is just a girl who understands how essential it is to love yourself. Back in the 70s (and even in our current era), people prefer women to be modest and reliant on their romantic partners. Jackie doesn't have time to be modest because she knows how wonderful she is, and at the same time, she doesn't need a boyfriend to tell her how loved she is. She has the ability to find that love within herself, which is something most of us mortals struggle with. (The girl was right when she told us she was a straight-up genius.)
6 'THE BEAUTIFUL CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HAVOC OUR LOOKS CREATE'
Jackie will not be held responsible for all of the chaos that ensues from her beauty. What happens, happens, and this will not stop her from flaunting all of the glory that God has given her. But let's be honest, our girl Jackie loves the attention that she gets from her physical appearance and we can't blame her. We all know that old saying: "If you've got it, flaunt it."
Jackie will continue to "flaunt it" regardless of all the mayhem that arises from her perfectly shined hair and dazzling white smile. Jackie says this quote to her boyfriend Michael Kelso, who is of course portrayed by Mila Kunis' real-life husband, Ashton Kutcher. Can a relationship get any more perfect? Probably not, but we hope they're doing alright with all of the havoc that comes from their looks.
5 'YOU DON'T JUST MOVE ON FROM JACKIE BURKHART. I'M LIKE THE BOTTLE, YOU NEED A 12 STEP PROGRAM TO BREAK MY SPELL'
Jackie B. knows her worth as a woman, and she doesn't quite comprehend the idea of someone easily getting over a relationship with her. While Jackie may often talk a big game and act as though she can never get hurt, we have seen the poor girl get her heart broken several times throughout the course of That '70s Show.
Whether it was by Kelso who she loved dearly despite the fact that he would cheat on her over and over again, or whether it was by Hyde who would treat her with absolutely no respect whatsoever throughout the entire series, it's clear that Jackie could've been treated a whole lot better by her romantic partners in Point Place. Yet the only person who seems to fully acknowledge this factor is Jackie herself, who is all-knowing and wise beyond her years.
4 'I'M GOING TO GO OUT, MEET SOME BOYS, AND CRUSH THEIR HEARTS ONE BY ONE'
Hey, at least she's being honest here. We have always been told that honesty is the best policy, right? Jackie is just being truthful about her motives, and we can't help but admire and respect her superpowers when it comes to crushing souls. While Superman may be able to physically harm his sworn enemies, Jackie has even more power because she is able to mentally break whoever she feels like at the moment, just for the fun of it. Some might call her mastery work evil, others will refer to it as pure genius. The point is, the girl has got some serious skill.
3 'I WAS VOTED MOST POPULAR, BEST LEGS, AND NOW GODMOTHER? WHAT CAN'T I DO?'
In the season seven episode "Who's Been Sleeping Here?", the gang finds out that Kelso and Betsy are going to have a baby. Kelso asks if Jackie and Hyde are willing to take on the role of the child's godparents because he has grown up with them and he thinks they would be the perfect fit for the task. Of course, this causes Eric and Donna to get rather offended because Kelso didn't ask them to be godparents, but let's be real: Having Eric and Donna as godparents wouldn't be half as fun as having Jackie and Hyde as godparents. Who wouldn't want a godmother as brilliant, beautiful, and confident as Jackie?
2 'BETTER TO HAVE LOVED AND LOST THAN TO BE BUTT-UGLY'
Sometimes Jackie Burkhart is so wise and philosophical with her words that we have to take a step back for a moment and find our breath. Her words of wisdom are so brilliant and carry so much weight, that we believe she should be as high up in the ranks of the most famous and well-respected philosophers, such as Socrates and Plato. One day, textbooks will fill up with her wise words and history classes will study her ways of life, then be tested on her greatest philosophies. This right here is pure proof that Jackie Burkhart is the one true genius on That '70s Show.
1 'I'M EVERYBODY'S TYPE, THAT'S MY THING'
Jackie Burkhart doesn't have time to be your typical boring Mary Sue character who we've all seen time and time before. Why be the Girl Next Door who is completely oblivious to all the boys clearly swooning over her, when you can be Jackie, the girl who is aware of her superpowers and uses them to her advantage?
Despite the series being a light-hearted comedy, there is no denying the fact that Jackie has been ripped on constantly by her friends in Eric Forman's basement and has been heartbroken countless times as well. Yet after all that she has been through, nothing could ever break Jackie Burkhart and her admirable confidence. She is simply unbreakable.
