    Anything said by Tobias is pure gold.


    Tobias: Oh, no, no. I'm not in the group yet. No, I'm afraid I just blue myself.
    ......


    Tobias: Do you have anything that says 'Dad Likes Leather'?
    Shop Clerk: Something that says "Leather daddy"?
    Tobias: Oh, is there such a thing?
    ......


    Shop Clerk: So, are you going to buy something this time or just look around again.
    Tobias: Well, I guess you could say i'm buy-curious
    ......

    I love all the Charlie brown and snoopy references...

    The song, and in the episode when Ann and George Michael broke up (i believe), there is a dog on-top of a red doghouse. The song is played in a couple of episodes.

    i love the whole chicken dance thing.

    michael: does anyone in this family know what a chicken sounds like?

    or omg when gob roofies himself. "i need to forget..."

    and how they think george michael has developed OCD, but really, he's just going around making sure lindsay doesn't burn the house down.

    I love when Lindsay mistakes George Michael's crush on his ethic's teacher for wanting her for a mother and says, "I'm disappointed you didn't consider me." and ends with, "just remember, I'm right down the hall."

    (laughing)

    To clarify:

    When GOB roofies himself, Steve Holt says, "Thanks Dad, I won't forget this" and walks out. GOB says,"I will...."takes a ruffie, "I will". One of the funniest moments in the show!

    Agreed. I'm amazed that they can do something like that and have something so wrong sooooo funny. The music makes it incredible, too. Gotta hand it to 'em that they know how to pick their music.

    It is also remeniscent of when GOB fails under the pressure of THE PROSECUTION and almost hangs himself. So wrong, but so funny.

    Another excelent music choice is the cha cha cha cha. example: Tobias "blue" himself when he thought he was getting a call from the Blue Man Group. Then he realized it was the Bluth Company, it goes slow motion, cue sound effect, and Tobias looks at himself in the mirror. AMAZING.

    Gotta love this show.

    Some of my favorite quotes of all time:

    Michael : "Well we're not here to talk nonsense to Bob Loblaw"

    -----------

    Tobias: "I afraid I prematurely shot my wad, on what was supposed to be a dry run, now I have somewhat of a mess on my hands"

    Michael: "There was just so many poorly choosen words in that sentance"

    So many hillarious parts already mentioned. (apologies for them not being exact quotes, going from memory)

    The scene when Tobias gets the hair implants and is covered in blood and Lupe screams about "Mr.Gay". LMAO!

    Or

    Michael: You've got to be the laziest person I know Lyndsay

    Lyndsay: If you weren't all the way across the room I'd slap you

    Or

    The scene with Gob trying to hide that he's smoking the pot he got for George Michael.

    Or

    Tobias to George Michael: Dont leave your Uncle Teabag hanging.

    George Michael: Please stop calling yourself that

    Or

    Michael: George Michael, what I want you to do is run upstairs and run a nice bath for Uncle Tobias and I want you to help him get in the tub. Can you do that for me? Thanks

    Tobias: And dont make the water too hot, the scabs come right off.

    So many...

    "Hello" "Annyong" always made me laugh. Especially in the last episode "But my real name is: Hello!" "Hello?" "Annyong!" or something to that effect.

    Other lovable gags include:
    -Final Countdown and Gob's dances that accompanied the song
    -Chicken Dances
    -Dr. Literal
    -Star Wars kid Video (First time I saw that I nearly died of laughter!)
    -Gene Parmesan

    One of my favourite quotes is-
    Gob's Wife: I'm in love with your brother-in-law.
    Gob: You're in love with your own brother? The one in the army?
    Gob's Wife: No, your sister's husband.
    Gob: Michael? Michael!
    Gob's Wife: No, that's your sister's brother.
    Gob: No, I'm my sister's brother. You're in love with me - me!
    Gob's Wife: I'm in love with Tobias.
    Gob: My brother-in-law?
    Gob's Wife: I know it can never be, so I'm leaving. I'm enlisting in the army.
    Gob: To be with your brother...
    Gob's Wife: No!

    Ann was plain, and everyone was surprised when George-Michael said he was dating her (pointing to her), and they would respond, "her?" Sometimes asking an additional, "Is she funny or somthing," becasue she wasn't much to look at.
