On The Next Arrested Development Gag: Buster and G.O.B. find themselves closer than ever, and Maggie gets a big surprise.
FOX originally aired this episode, and the one before it, "Out On A Limb
", on the same night as a one hour event.
This episode marks the first time that the narrator speaks in first person when Lucille says "We had a fight. Who knows about what?" and the narrator responds "I do.".
The narrator says Buster's hand was taken by a "loose seal", which is meant to sound like Lucille.
Car Salesman: Yeah, the Bronco's been discontinued. We're trying to shed that whole fugitive-on-the-run thing. This is the Escape.
George Sr.: What a fun name. May I test drive?
Lucille: I prayed that God take anything He wanted from us so that Buster wouldn't have to go to war.
Michael: Oh Mom. After all these years, God's not going to take a call from you.
George Michael: Ann's off with her religious group trying to get Nip/Tuck taken off the air.
Michael: They don't like Nip/Tuck?
George Michael: Well, you know, they don't like anything. Something about God wants people to age naturally, or I don't know. Ironically, she likes Gangy.
Dr. Fishman: Yes, he’s lost his left hand. So he’s going to be “all right.”
Lucille: You son of a bitch. I hate this doctor!
Lindsay: How do we keep getting this guy?
Michael: Mom, he’s a very literal man.
Dr. Fishman: Yes, that’s more the way I would take the news.
