On The Next Arrested Development Gag: Barry gets a big break on his case, and for the first time, Lucille prays, and Buster is on his way when he decides to pursue a long-delayed rite of passage, and then a seal bites off his hand.
FOX aired this episode, as well as Part 2, "My Hand to God
", on the same night as a one hour event.
When Buster sits on the Army bench, he covers it up part of the words with only "Arm Off" showing, foreshadowing his encounter with the seal.
This episode was scheduled to air on February 20, but the show's producer requested that it be preempted. Instead, it aired as a one hour block on March 6th and The Simpsons aired on February 20.
Maeby: You know, George Michael, you worry too much. It’s Sunday. You’re allowed to have a couple of hours off. You don’t see me nervous about being on my third Virgin Mary.
George Michael: Why would you be nervous? There’s no alcohol in a Virgin Mary.
Maeby: There isn’t? This is unbelievable. (to the waiter) Can I get a Virgin Pina Colada when you get a chance? Now we’ll get things started.
Lindsay: That's the first time we're in the shower since our honeymoon.
Tobias: And this time no tears!
Tobias: Oh, a pregnancy test. There's something we never had, huh, Lindsay? No, we had to create our little Frankenstein monster out of science, and money, and just a dash of -- (Notices Maeby has entered) Maeby - would - how - how long have you been standing there?
Maeby: I just walked in.
Tobias: Just walked in! Seems like only yesterday you were bursting forth from your mother's fertile womb!
Michael: What’s her first name? Quickly.
Michael: Her name’s not Krindy, G.O.B.
G.O.B.: Ah, Saul Zentsman. No ... that’s her lawyer. Well, she’s got a name, and I’m going to find out what it is, and I’m going to make a pun on it and that’s what I’ll call her. Bad example: if her name’s Amy, I’ll call her Blamy.
Lucille: What the hell was I supposed to do? Michael Moore confronted me in front of the whole country.
Michael: First of all, it wasn’t Michael Moore. It was a Michael Moore look-alike, and it wasn’t in front of the whole country. It was for a bit on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Lucille: I don’t know who that is, and I don’t care to find out.
Sally Sitwell: And maybe we’ll work on breaking that record.
Michael: Okay. She’s a shot-putter. And I’m dating her, but I just want to make sure that you’re comfortable with everything.
George Michael: Of course. We could double-date— you and Sally and me and Ann.
George Michael: Ann.
George Michael: And we had...
Michael: Yes. Of course I know Ann. Didn’t mean “who.” I meant, uh... “her.” That’s a great idea. I love Ann.
