‘Development Arrested’

Season 3, Episode 13 -  Aired February 10, 2006

With George Sr. cleared of all charges, Michael is determined to make an honest go of it as he's finally named CEO of the Bluth Company.

Quote from Michael

Michael: Let's see if we are on Mad Money, huh?
Woman: [on TV] And they deliver insulin right to my door!
Michael: It's probably on right after this ad. This is going to be great for us, too. It's going to give us a chance to spend some time together, you know? It's like I don't even know what's going on in your life right now. Are there any girls or...?
George Michael: Actually I've been wrestling with some pretty taboo-
Michael: Shh-shh. Here it is!
Jim Cramer: [on TV] They beat the treason charges! We had it as a "Don't buy." Let's bump it up to a "Risky!"
Michael: Risky! There it is!


Quote from Michael

Narrator: And the two grand ladies made their escape together.
Police Officer: Lucille Bluth, please pull over and step away from the historic ship.
Michael: I think Gangie's trying to make a break for it.
George Michael: Well, I guess we should go back. Family sticks together, huh?
Michael: Yeah. On the other hand, we do have a full tank of gas, a house in Cabo, and 500 grand in cashier's checks. What say we give them no choice but to keep themselves all together for a while?

Quote from Narrator

Narrator: It was Arrested Development. On the epilogue, Michael wakes up to another strange bedfellow after his first night at sea.
George Sr.: How was the party?
Narrator: And Maeby pitches her TV show to a Hollywood icon who says...
Ron Howard: No, I, uh... I don't see it as a series. Maybe a movie.

Quote from George Michael

Michael: It sounds like a lot more than it actually is. You know, you've already spent $1,200 on eggs. And that would be it forever. Keep in mind, we are building something that is not only for our own kids; it's also for George Michael and Maeby's kids, too.
George Michael: What? What? We can't have kids! What are you? I mean, it's not even an option, really. [chuckles]
Michael: Well, eventually, you'll want to.
George Michael: Sure, I may want to, you know, now. I-It doesn't matter. Either way, I won't do anything about it. Come on!

Quote from Buster

Lindsay: It's fine for you to say "Don't sell," but I'm going to be 40 in three years, you know?
Michael: You know, being twins, our birthdays are pretty close to one another.
Lindsay: Yeah, but a 40-year-old woman has as much a chance of getting married as she does of getting attacked by a shark.
Buster: [screams] Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you were going to say "seal."
Lindsay: Or a seal.
Buster: Oh, God!

Quote from Gob

Michael: Gob, you're going to burn through this money and have nothing, all right? "You give a man a fish, he'll eat for a night. If you teach a man to fish..."
Gob: He'll want to use your yacht, and I don't want this thing smelling like fish. I'm burning through my future for it.

Quote from Lucille

Lucille: [on the phone] Well, you can't let Gob sell those shares.
Michael: Well, what am I supposed to do? He won't give up the yacht.
Lucille: So lease it to him through the company.
Michael: Yeah, that just doesn't feel right.
Lucille: Oh, really? How would it feel to lose the company to a man who has less hair on his [bleep] than I have on my [bleep]?
Michael: It can't be worse than hearing that just was.

Quote from Tobias

Tobias: I booked the perfect location and some wonderful performers for the party. We're having it at the Queen Mary.
Buster: [gasps] Queen Mary? That's a ship!
Tobias: Oh, no, no, no. It's a chain of popular nightclubs. Although I haven't been to this particular location. It's on the Long Beach Harbor.
Buster: That's the ship.
Michael: Buster, don't worry about it. They've actually welded it to the dock.
Tobias: Although, perhaps I should call the "Hot Cops" and tell them to come up with something more nautically themed. Hot Sailors. Better yet, Hot Seam-
Michael: I like Hot Sailors.
Tobias: Hmm. Me too.

Quote from George Michael

George Michael: Maeby and I made out.
Michael: I'm sorry?
George Michael: Me, too.
Michael: What-what do you mean, son? You kissed?
George Michael: Even a little more than that. I thought she wasn't my real cousin, but then Uncle Tobias showed us these really rough pictures that proved that she was really Aunt Lindsay's daughter. I just feel like I can't be around her. Or Aunt Lindsay. They were really rough pictures.
Michael: No, I remember their birth announcement like it was yesterday.
George Michael: I mean, I know it's wrong, you know, but, uh, my feelings are real even... Even if it was a mistake.
Michael: Well, obviously, acting on those feelings is not an option. She's a blood relative.
George Michael: I know. I've seen the blood.

Quote from George Michael

Narrator: Days earlier, Michael awoke to find his son in his bed.
Michael: Hey, are you scared of a monster?
George Michael: Kind of.
Narrator: It was the monster called lust, to which he'd recently succumbed.
George Michael: And there's a chance you might not even be related to us.
Narrator: And although he'd only gotten to second base, he'd gone in head-first like Pete Rose. And they both got some distressing news.
Tobias: And there you are, Maeby, coming out of your mother's third base. You guys really are related.
Narrator: And that night...
Maeby: You're not sleeping in here now.
George Michael: Yeah, you think that's a bad idea?
Maeby: What, I mean, so we can make out every night?
George Michael: Does that not work for your schedule? I mean, I'm sure we can control our... [Maeby kisses George Michael] You know I'm going to go sleep with my dad.
Maeby: Yeah, I'm going to go get my job back.
