  • There may be reason behind not introducing Rita to the Bluths

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (15)

    • Buster: Tobias was just analraping me. Then, Michael barged in and kicked us out so we could shred all the evidence.

    • Gob: Buster knocked her out; I only gave her the roofie!

    • Lucille: It's probably because a seal bit off his hand. The army has taken to giving medals for being food.

    • Tobias: Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over— an analyst and a therapist. The world’s first analrapist.

    • Michael: You know, your average American male is in a perpetual state of adolescence, you know, arrested development. Narrator: Hey, that’s the name of the show.

    Notes (4)

    • The game George Senior is watching in the first scene is a Missouri Valley Conference baseball game between Creighton University and Wichita State University. It is somewhat strange that George Senior would be watching a game between two mid-major baseball teams out of Wichita and Omaha given that there would really be no reason for this game to be aired or even cared about in Orange County, California.

    • The phrase "forget me now's" are roofies. This is referenced several times (both in the past and present) when a character needed to be knocked out.

    • Buster: I have so many people to thank. Upon receiving his medal, Buster pulls out index cards from his breast pocket. Though upside-down, the top card reads: And most of all Mother (choked up).

    • When Rita wakes up on the Wee Britain bench, her body obscures the words so that the bench reads: Wee Brain.

    Trivia (5)

    • When Rita is carried out of the cabin, she is laid down on a park bench that promotes Wee Britain. When she comes to and sits up, she is covering two letters on the sign, making it spell "Wee Brain."

    • Wee Britain's only American-themed restaurant is called Fat Americans, and their over-sized doggie bags read, "I'm still eating at Fat Americans."

    • In one scene, George Sr. is eating an ice cream sandwich while laying on a bed and watching a man in a chair tied wtih balloons on television. The scene quickly cuts to the Larry, the surrogate. When it cuts right back to George Sr., he's no longer is eating the ice cream sandwich and a Laptop is in front of him.

    • The seal on Rita's back had a yellow bow tie, the same color tie as the one that bit off Busters hand.

    • During attorney Bob Loblaw's commercial, when listing the types of cases he handles, "Identity Theft" has the disclaimer "*Cash Only*".

    Allusions (3)

    • Bob Loblaw: Look, this is not the first time I've been brought in to replace Barry Zuckerkorn. I think I can do for you everything he did. Plus, skew younger. With juries and so forth.

      A reference to Scott Baio's character on Happy Days, Chachi Arcola, who was added to the show to reach a younger audience than his cousin, the Fonz (played by Henry Winkler). Chachi eventually replaced Fonzie as a main focus of the show.

    • Among the film scripts that Maeby is reading is one titled "Losing It!" by Judd Apacow. In red ink, it is crossed out and retitled "The 14-Year-Old Virgin." This is likely a nod to Judd Apatow, a writer and producer of the film, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."

    • Scott Baio (Bob Loblaw) is the third Happy Days alum to work on Arrested Development, after Ron Howard and Henry Winkler.
