When George Michael & Maeby are watching TV, a commercial for Klimpy's can be heard.
During the counseling session, Lindsay is reading DogCandy magazine, which appears to be doggy porn. The magazine headlines are: "The DogCandy Interview: Daisy", "Just A Pup: Midwest Campus Beauties" and "Don't miss this months pictorial: Abby Esbona". The marriage counselor's office is also decorated with a large number of dog-related items.
When Michael comes home after setting up an intimate conjugal visit for his parents, he drops his bag onto the couch but he is shown doing this twice.
During Lindsay and Tobias' therapy session, a cameraman briefly steps into frame.
George Michael: My bike needs a tune-up or something.
Michael: Let's not blame the bike. Okay? It's a poor carpenter that blames his shoddy tools ...
George Sr.: Time to pull out the basket, and we dig into some hot ... Son of a bitch!
Richard Simmons: Oh! Look what you did! You plopped it!
George Sr.: I'll plop you, you mincing little ...
Kitty: Your wife's on line one.
Narrator: Michael's wife had been dead for two years.
Michael: My what?
Narrator: Kitty realized her mistake.
Kitty: I said, 'your wife is on line one.'
Narrator: But not immediately.
Lucille: (to a waiter) Take it back. If I wanted something your thumb touched, I'd eat the inside of your ear.
Kitty: Gob? I wish I would have know you were coming. I am a mess.
Gob: Don't know if a call from me would've changed that.
Gob: Take off your glasses. Oh ... Wait, wait. Let down your hair. No, glasses on, hair back up. Let's just get that hair right back up.
Kitty: Let me turn the lights off.
Gob: Yes, yes, please.
Kitty: How's that? Is that better?
Gob: It just seems like there's still light coming in from under the door.
George Sr.: I haven't had sex in a month.
Michael: You know, you've been here two months.
George Sr.: It's hard to gauge time.
Michael: Yeah. I'll bet.
Gob: I *bleep* Kitty!
Michael: Oh, Gob! I just wanted you to get the information.
Gob: I got the information.
Michael: You did, huh? About the international accounts?
Gob: Oh, I see what you're getting at. No, I didn't get any information.
Kitty: That's none of your business ... My business.
Dr. Gunty: I'm no David Schwimmer, and you're no Jennifer Aniston!
George Sr.: Daddy horny, Michael.
Tobias: Ok, kids. Mommy and daddy are going out for ice cream.
Maeby: Can we come?
Lindsay: Sorry, it's not for kids.
George Michael: Ok ... So, why are we doing this?
Maeby: 'Cause it's obvious they're lying. Come on, drive!
George Michael: Well, what if they see us?
Maeby: How are they going to see us?
George Michael: Well, it says "Bluth Company" right on the side, plus it's a stairway. That's gonna catch the eye.
Kitty: Do you like my outfit?
Gob: Not as much as I like what's underneath it.
Gob: No, I need your chair. Get up.
Therapist: If I'm no Schwimmer, you're no Jennifer Anniston.
Tobias: I'm not even Lisa Kudrow.
A reference to David Schwimmer, Jennifer Anniston and Lisa Kudrow, stars of NBC's Friends.
Narrator: In fact, he'd been terrified of the very notion of prison since, as a young boy, he accidentally watched HBO's Oz, mistaking it for the classic Judy Garland musical.
George Michael is wearing a Tin Man hat from The Wizard of Oz while he accidentally watches the prison drama. Also, Judy Garland is the mother of Liza Minnelli, who plays Lucille Austero.
Tobias: Now if I could act that good, I would have my own Alias-type show.
Alias is an ABC spy-drama that airs at the same time Arrested Development airs. It is Arrested's biggest competitor in that timeslot.
