Episode Notes
On The Next Arrested Development Gag: George Sr. shows up to bid on Lucille, but the sound of his wolf call and the smell of chicken teriyaki interfered.

Episode Quotes
Lindsay: I have the afternoon free.
Lucille: Really? Did 'nothing' cancel?

G.O.B.: It's called taking advantage. It's what gets you ahead in life.

George Sr.: My back is in knots. I haven't had a massage since prison.
Michael: Hope that was forced.

Lucille 2: You're embarrassed to be with me!
G.O.B.: No, I'm embarrassed to be seen with you!

Lucille 2: Read me the appetizers again.
G.O.B.: “Fried cheese ... with club sauce.”
Lucille 2: Oh.
G.O.B.: “Popcorn shrimp ... with club sauce.”
Lucille 2: (moans)
G.O.B.: “Chicken fingers ...”
Lucille 2: Oh, stop it, you’re making me dizzy.
G.O.B.: “... with spicy club sauce.”
Lucille 2: No, I mean stop it!

Maeby: Hey, George Michael, Jesus called, he wants your Thriller album.

Michael: In fact, weren’t you protesting some hunter gun thing yesterday?
Lindsay: I stopped by. I hadn’t chosen a side.

Tobias: And the worst part is Lindsay’s out there chasing some successful actor: television’s Frank Wrench. I need to prove to her that I’m not just a man, but a man’s man.
Michael: Oh, I think she knows that.

Cultural References
