I have 3 potted 'egg-plant' plants and everytime they flower and I think I'm going to have an actual eggplant, the bud drops off. What am I doing wrong? I water them everyday, they have 6-8 hours of sun everyday, I checked them for bugs everyday and the soil is Scotts Potting soil with nutrients.

Excessive heat can cause the flowers to drop, as can lack of pollination. When the conditions are just right, your eggplants will produce for you. Best wishes with your garden!
