Arrested Development 12/05/04

Another great episode so far!


(paraphrased)
Michael: I wasn't sure you got my message
Ann: We talked

All of the moping to "Christmastime Is Here" was great. And the dog asleep on top of the doghouse was hilarious.

I have Pop Pop in the attic

The fact that you call it Pop Pop shows that you're not ready for it.

Loved the episode.

When Buster came into the house for the "birthday party" in that army outfit I laughed so hard I hurt my throat coughing.

I loved it tonight as always. Friggin' hilarious.

I wasn't feeling it for this episode, not a home run, more like a standup double.

When they showed the magician in Poof magazine, I swear it was Ben Stiller. It looked just like him.

Great episode. Buster's costume was fantastic.

What makes the nod to the Peanuts Christmas Special fucking classic is for the fact when George Michael is depressed, you could see a big red dog house with a dog sleeping on top of it behind him.

Memorable Quotes and Moments:
- "I want to be in that Poof."
- "What the fuck happened to my hard boiled eggs?"
- "Pop pop doesn't get a treat! I just brought you a fucking pizza!"
- Gob ripping off his stripper pants.
- Buster dancing behind Gob.
- Reference to the Aztech Tomb from the Pilot episode.
- Buster ruining the kitchen and the maid's favorite toy.
- George Sr. asking about Ann to George Michael.

And the quote of the night:
"I think that George Michael might be hiding Ann in the attic."
"From who? The Nazis?"

The dog on top of the red dog house killed me

The part with the will was funny too

Barry:"The will, yeah it's right next to the hotplate in the office"

Narrator:"Barry had the lost the will"

Actually he said "The hotplate with the frayed wires."

I love that at one point Michael called Ann "Egg."

And yes, that was Ben Stiller as the magician who got cooked into a loaf of bread.

"Mother, Pop Pop wanted more than anything in this world to see you have sex with a man other than dad."
"You're right. I'll go put on a skirt, take off my panties, and show Ice what I'm worth!"
"Wait, that might do it by itself. Barry!"

The trashing of the kitchen, Buster's military costume, and "Who the fuck took my hard boiled eggs!?!" followed by the sad walk all had me gasping for breath.

- George Sr. asking about Ann to George Michael.
If you look at yahoo's tv site, they have a slightly extended version of the scene that I thought was real funny.

I was crying after GOB fell out of the coffin, the coffin fell on top of him...and then the bulldozer dumped in the dirt.

So many great throwaway lines...especially about Ann. Another I loved was "It's as Ann as the nose on Plain's face."

There was a few gags that haven't been mentioned. When Buster is picking out the card, there is a G.W. Bush punching bag in the back.

Pop pop is in a Spiderhole and is inspected for his glicing teeth much like saddam, even with long beard. Oh political humor has never been done better.

And Charlie brown wanted to know where his eggs where when snoopy ate them.

Michael making all the anne mess ups "as Anne on the nose of Plain's face"

"I think George Michael is hiding anne in the attic"
"from who, the nazi's?"

And the best and most subtle peanuts reference tonight is a toss up:

"The frozen banana maker is OUT" sign on the buth's frozen banana booth. reference to Lucy's booth and, of course,

I cannot believe how many things I missed. Especially the dog on the doghouse...I mean..it's freakin' red house and I missed it???
This show is just to funny to even think of watching once per episode.
Sometimes the lines are so quick I miss every other joke as I am laughing at the preceding one.

Also, I think a father and son walked past George Michael carrying an Xmas tree right before the doghouse. I'm assuming that's from the Peanuts cartoon too.

Oh, and "Poof" magazine had my laughing every time they said the name.

My favorite little detail that I noticed was the phone book shot of Ice's ad. If you pause, you can see that the page before his ad has an ad for Gene Parmesian, including pictures of good old Gene in several of his incredible disguises. If anybody has a screen cap, it would be worthy of posting for others who missed it.
