Episode Notes
Tony Hale (Buster) does not appear in this episode.

On The Next Arrested Development Gag: Tobias talks Lindsay into another session, and George Sr. makes good on his promise to come clean on the international accounts.

Episode Quotes
George Sr.: I haven't had sex in a month.
Michael: You know, you've been here two months.
George Sr.: It's hard to gauge time.
Michael: Yeah. I'll bet.

George Michael: Okay ... so, why are we doing this?
Maeby: 'Cause it's obvious they're lying. Come on, drive!
George Michael: Well, what if they see us?
Maeby: How are they going to see us?
George Michael: Well, it says "Bluth Company" right on the side, plus it's a stairway. That's gonna catch the eye.

G.O.B.: I f***ed Kitty!
Michael: Oh, G.O.B.! I just wanted you to get the information.
G.O.B.: I got the information.
Michael: You did, huh? About the international accounts?
G.O.B.: Oh, I see what you're getting at. No, I didn't get any information.

Kitty: G.O.B.? I wish I would have know you were coming. I am a mess.
G.O.B.: Don't know if a call from me would've changed that.

Kitty: Your wife's on line one.
Narrator: Michael's wife had been dead for two years.
Michael: My what?
Narrator: Kitty realized her mistake.
Kitty: I said, "your wife is on line one."
Narrator: But not immediately.

G.O.B.: Take off your glasses. Oh...wait, wait. Let down your hair. No, glasses on, hair back up. Let's just get that hair right back up.
Kitty: Let me turn the lights off.
G.O.B.: Yes, yes, please.
Kitty: How's that? Is that better?
G.O.B.: It just seems like there's still light coming in from under the door.

Narrator: George, Sr. was also anxious, but less about the bookkeeping.
George, Sr.: This game is never gonna happen. Look at this—half of these guys, they’re still in their cuffs.
Michael: I hate to be a buzz kill, but I’m trying to get you out of here.
George, Sr.: Yeah, well, I’m trying to get us out of last place, Michael. We’re playing Rahway next week. Word has it that they’re getting Jose Canseco.

Episode Goofs
You can see a camera man during Lindsay and Tobias' therapy.

When Michael returns home after setting up the conjugal visit, he puts his bag on the couch twice.

Cultural References
Tobias: Now if I could act that good, I would have my own Alias-type show.

Alias is a drama on ABC about a spy for the CIA. During this season, Alias was Arrested Development's biggest ratings competition.

Narrator: In fact, he’d been terrified of the very notion of prison since, as a young boy, he accidentally watched HBO’s Oz, mistaking it for the classic Judy Garland musical.

Oz is a prison drama on HBO. George Michael mistakes it for The Wizard of Oz, a movie musical starring Judy Garland as Dorothy.

(during the role play session)
Dr. Gunty: If I'm no Schwimmer, you're no Jennifer Aniston!

Dr. Gunty is referring to actor David Schwimmer who co-starred on the NBC sitcom Friends. On the show, Schwimmer's character, Ross, and Aniston's character, Rachel, have an on-again, off-again relationship.

Episode References
(Tobias and Dr. Gunty are about to kiss during a role playing session)
Lindsay: And scene.

Lindsay interrupting Tobias and Dr. Gunty's almost kiss is similar to when Tobias interrupts Maeby and George Michael before they kiss in the school play during "Bringing Up Buster".
