Arrested Development CRACKS ME UP. Going to have a marathon tonight, while I do our taxes. Gotta keep it interesting, right? Here are some of my favorite gags.

Michael Bluth: So this is the magic trick, huh?
George Oscar 'Gob' Bluth: Illusion, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money...[sees children watching his magic show]...or cocaine!!!

Buster: [Startled by the title on Tobias' business card, Analrapist] Tobias Fünke: No, no, it's pronounced a-nal-ra-pist. Buster: It wasn't really the pronunciation that bothered me.

Tobias Fünke (David Cross): [while rehearsing his "frightened inmate #2" character with his wife] Say something that will terrify me.
Lindsay Funke (Portia DeRossi): Fuck me.
Tobias Fünke: No, that didn't do it.

Michael: [Talking about the family cabin] It is going to be up in Tahoe a couple more days. Maybe you could take a date.
Lucille: How am I supposed to find someone willing to go into that musty old claptrap?
Michael: [Michael stares at her awkwardly] The cabin... yes! That would be difficult, too.

Michael Bluth: You seem more villainous than usual, Mom; are you sober? Lucille Bluth: Michael, it's eight a.m. Michael: So, it's not that. Lucille: I don't know. Maybe it's because I went off my post-partum medication. Michael Bluth: You were still taking that? You had Buster thirty-two years ago. Lucille: And that's how long I've been depressed about him.




* UPDATE. I've been told that the dialogue here isn't very funny if you have not actually watched the episodes. So I will cut down the quotes, add this clip, and tell you to GO WATCH IT already.
The LAST thing I want to do is to make those of you who haven't seen it think that it isn't funny.


**Crap, I am so limited at work. There will be no embedding. Click here to see a clip from the pilot.

  2. Actually, the quote is:

    Michael Bluth: So this is the magic trick, huh?
    George Oscar 'Gob' Bluth: Illusion, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money...[sees children watching his magic show]...or cocaine!

    Even better.

    (Maybe they change it for on-air broadcast?)
