Episode Notes
On The Next Arrested Development Gag: Uncle Jack buys the company, but makes some changes of his own; Tobias listens to a day’s worth of his own words, to see what Michael was referring to, and he realized there is something distinct about the way he speaks.

This episode marks the final appearance of Liza Minnelli (Lucille "Lucille 2" Austero).



Episode Quotes
George Sr.: You're pimping out your sister?
Michael: Well you were pimping out my mother!

Tobias: I had no idea a ninety year-old man could cave in my chest cavity like that.

Lucille: Buster, nice of you to take a break from that common whore you've been dating.
Buster: She is not a whore, mother, she happens to be the new secretary of the Bluth company. And yes, she may be more experienced than a normal girl, but sometimes love should be terrifying.

Michael: So what do you say? We got a basket full of father-son fun here.
George Michael: What's kama sutra oil?
Michael: Maybe it's not for us.

Tobias: Wait, wait, wait. Lindsay's here? With two men?
Buster: Hmm, sort of one and a half.

Tobias: Well, yes, but I’m afraid I prematurely shot my wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, if you will, so now I’m afraid I have something of a mess on my hands.
Michael: There are just so many poorly chosen words in that sentence.

Narrator: Tobias listens to a day’s worth of his own words, to see what Michael was referring to --
Tobias: (on tape) ...even it means me taking a chubby, I will suck it up.
Tobias: Nothing wrong with that.
Tobias: (on tape) Oh, I’ve been in the film business for a while, but I just can’t seem to get one in the can.
Tobias: It’s out of context.
Tobias: (on tape) I wouldn’t mind kissing that man between the cheeks.
Narrator: -- and he realized there is something distinct about the way he speaks.
Tobias: Tobias ... you blowhard! (laughs)

Lucille: I think the company is in trouble.
Michael: What tipped you? The falling profits, or that we’re a regular feature on Bill O’Reilly’s “Most Ridiculous Item of the Day”?

Lucille: I’m talking about the fact that my “friend,” Lucille Austero, bought our company, and I think she’s going for a power grab— that bitch!
Michael: You’re not at home, Mom. She doesn’t live next door when you’re here.

G.O.B.: Where you going?
Lucille 2: I’m going to my spin class.
G.O.B.: I thought you had vertigo.

Michael: (to Lucille) You’ve got to stop quoting when you drink.

Michael: Sorry. Your grandmother had a little accident here.
George Michael: Oh. Does that mean she’s going to have to come live with us?
Michael: No, no. No. It was her drink, and even if it wasn’t...

Martin Short's (Uncle Jack) role was inspired by Jack LaLanne, a 90 year-old fitness guru.
