    My wife feels that Lucille is the most under rated and under estimated charachter. What's your favorite Lucille moment.

    Which Lucille, Bluth or Austero? If itis Lucille 2... ewww. If its L. Bluth (which I'm guessing you meant) then I would have to say that she is arguably the best character in the entire show. Michael summed her up best: "You gotta remember Mom typically has nothing in her system except a bottle of vodka and an estrogen pill." She somehow pulls off being a complete bee-itch and somewhat likeable at the same time and so manipulative and yet oblivious... its really great to watch.

    She's probably my least favorite character, other than perhaps Lucile 2.

    I love both Lucilles, but I'll focus on Lucille Bluth...

    Some of my favorite Lucielle lines:

    (talking about Buster)

    "He's a beautiful boy...they don't appreciate him. It's his glasses...they make him look like a lizard...plus he's self-conscious."

    -------

    Lucille:When's the last time you went on a date?

    Michael: I just haven't met anybody who's not completely self-absorbed and impossible to have a conversation with.

    Lucille:If that's a veiled criticism about me, I won't hear it and I won't respond to it.

    ------

    Michael:Hey, Mom. Remember we had that conversation about trying to cut back on things that aren't necessities?

    Lucille:Like it was yesterday.

    Michael: It was this morning.

    -----

    Lucille:Get me a vodka rocks.

    Michael: Mom, it's breakfast.

    Lucille:And a piece of toast.

    -----

    Lucille: It's not fair to Buster. He's a nervous wreck right now. He's going into the Army, for God's sake.

    Michael:You volunteered him.

    Lucille: I knew you were going to throw that in my face.

    Lucielle: I'll be in the hospital bar.
    Michael: There is no hospital bar, mother.
    Lucielle: Well! This is why people hate hospitals!

    In a show that's nothing but awesome, how could you have 2 least favourite characters?

    Both Lucilles are awesome, I suppose Lucille Bluth is better though.

    Waitress: Plate or platter?

    Lucille: I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

    Lucielle is great Lucielle 2 not so much.

    She told Lindsay that Vodka goes bad when it's opened and wine only turns into alcohol if you let it sit.

    Well, because Lucille 2 isn't in the opening credits, so she's not really a main character. So Lucille is my least favorite main character and Lucille 2 is my least favorite recurring character - so there.

    It's not that I dislike them, I just like them the least. I never said I didn't like them.

    Lucille: If you're saying I play favorites, you're wrong. I love all my children equally.
    (Earlier that day)
    Lucille: I don't care for Gob.

    Lucille's lines are absolute perfection. You cannot not like her.

    I forbid it.

    From annoucing to the family "Tonight for dinner we are having 'Lindsey Chops'!" to drinking Kitty under the table on spring break, thus bedazzling the teen audience that watched on and listened in("Wow!, and she just left rehab!"), Lucille Bluth indeed delivered the goods.

    I loved Lucille Bluth.

    I love when Lucille takes Buster's pain medication, and mistakes the "drowsy eye alcohol warning for a winking eye alcohol suggestion".

    lol
