    I know what my favourite lines are from the characters, I just want all of your opinions on which other ones are also good.

    George Sr.: [via satellite from prison] "Sorry, some of my students are arguing the significance of the shankbone on the seder plate. But we do not - not wag our genitals at one another to make a point." This and many more (this was copied directly from IMDB just in case you or your lawyers were wondering).

    I don't know if it counts as a one liner but when Tobias is talking bout Robert Redford.
    "But give me an old pro like Robert Redford anyday, ohhh I would lay in bed with that man all day, And I wouldn't just lie there Michael Bluth if that's what you're thinking."

    Lol Yeah basically anything Tobias said especially when he was listening to himself on the tape recorder.
    "Even if it means me taking a chubby I will suck it up."

    Just a few of my favorites:

    "You know what? I'm going to throw on a skirt, take off my underwear, and make your Pop-pop proud!"

    "Michael was concerned that he was caught in a lie about his family. the family was concerned that they were being confronted by a woman they had clubbed, drugged, and left on a bench.

    It was awkward."

    "Although George Michael had only got to second base, he’d gone in head first, like Pete Rose."

    Not the quote itself, but when they show Pete Rose a second time when George-Michael is talking to his dad. Now, I can't think of Pete Rose anymore without laughing.

    " I've made a huge mistake"

    Best one liner from the whole Bluth family, well, most of them at least say it, Gob the most.

    Gob and family talking about Michael's new woman without having seen her yet:  "Well, give us a break.  I mean we're not exactly dog people."  I laughed so hard

    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: And Michael was getting an update on how his newest employee, Nellie, was working out.

    Michael: (Into phone.) Really? And all the guys like her, huh? That is, that is, that is great. Uh, you mean “away,” though, right? Because otherwise it sounds a little different, but, uh, that’s, uh, that’s outstanding. You forgot to say “away” again. But listen, let me call you back in a bit, okay? Bye. (To Lindsay.) Nellie has blown them all away.

    Tobias: "I'm afraid I just blue myself."

    [pause]

    Michael: There has to be a better way to say that.

    Well a lot of the great one liners come from Gob and Tobias but since Gob is my favourite character, I'll list a few of his:

    While searching for hermano: "Thanks mon frere - that means brother in french. I don't know how I know that, I took 3 years of spanish"

    ""Portugal? So, flying down South America way, are you Mikey?"

    "There's not a lot of logic to it. It's kind of like on a boat with "Women and children first."

    "I'm a failure. I can't even fake the death of a stripper"

    "Gilligan killed the skipper-stripper!"

    Mines not really a one liner but one of the funniest AD moments for me was in "the One where Michale Leaves (2) when Michael says to George Michael "Are you too old to sit on your dads lap and drive"? and George Michael says "Yeah, I think I am" but in the next scene after they have been stopped by the cops George Michale is sitting on Michaels lap. I loved it! looked so fricken hilarious!!!
