Arrested Development: Saving for Arraignment Day

514. Saving for Arraignment Day

Aired March 15, 2019

When Buster's legal defense is thrown into chaos as the trial gets underway, George Sr. and Lucille search for a new lawyer. Meanwhile, George Michael tries to create a distraction from Fakeblock's troubles.

Quote from Barry Zuckerkorn

Jack Griffin: Your Honor, in the case of The State of California v. Buster Bluth, we'd like to enter a plea of guilty.
Judge Spencer: Hmm. Okay. Let's set a date for a sentencing presentation. And on a personal note, I just want to say that it is not often in the course of a jurisprudence career that a judge has the... I want to say privilege-
Michael: Sorry. Did- Did- Did you say- Did they say guilty?
Barry: Look at that. There is always a guy who wants to know what's going on. It's why I could never go to the movies with my father.

Quote from Lucille

Buster: [singsong] Mother Is there anybody else you'd like to say hello to, Mother?
Lucille: At least I came to your trial. For mine, you were too busy juicing it up with that woman you probably pushed...
Buster: [singsong] Careful.
Lucille: Yep. You look different.
Buster: I'm growing dreads, Mother. Dreads right out of my head.
Lucille: Just because you have an African-American left hand, all of a sudden you're Ray Charles? And I thought you Alibaba-ed one that was less threatening.

Quote from Narrator

Narrator: The so-called Guilty Guys were a law firm whose record was so unblemished they'd even been the subject of a reality show. The project, which was to show a single case over the span of a season was abandoned early on by Netflix as not being binge-worthy.

Quote from Barry Zuckerkorn

Michael: Where is this team we're spending all our money on? And- And please tell me that it is not Barry.
Barry: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. I'm just here as a fan. And for the referral fee. I'm gonna go in the hall and see if they're here yet.
Michael: Okay.
Barry: I'm gonna try and get a selfie with the G-Man.

Quote from Gob

Michael: The wall's gonna be fine. Gob's on it. And I don't want George Michael feeling guilty about the firing, so I told Gob, when it comes to the foot, that mum's the word.
Narrator: Although "clear" might've been an overstatement.
[flashback:]
Gob: It was a great move to get rid of your dad. Can't let fear run a business.
George Michael: How do you mean, fear?
Gob: Well, you get sent one severed foot from the Chinese, and, all of a sudden, you turn into a crybaby.
George Michael: The Chinese sent my dad a severed human foot?
Gob: Yeah. Although they call it a "mum." Mum's the word for "severed human foot" in Chinese. I don't even know how I know that. But it's to ensure that he finishes building the wall or whatever. It's like, you know what? Like, call me after you've been lured down to a rock quarry, and someone threatens to ruin your magic career if you go to gay conversion therapy, and it works. [chuckles] I mean, seriously, call me after that, because I'd be curious to see how how you'd handle it.

Quote from Lucille

Lucille: Well, having a child try to embarrass you is part of parenting, sweetheart. Mine's chained to a bench. So, in that sense, he's an overachiever.

Quote from Barry Zuckerkorn

Barry: They're out. We won't be hearing from them again. Well, except for what they're gonna charge us for the phone call. They've never technically won a case, but they've never lost a fee.

Quote from Barry Zuckerkorn

George Sr.: So that's my choice? Between my wife and my son?
Barry: Isn't that the worst? Especially when you're checking into a hotel. Here's my advice. Always say that he's your wife, 'cause they never have the balls to check. I'm out of context again, aren't I? [quietly] I'm so sorry.

Quote from Lucille

George Sr.: Jitters can be bad. Remember when I had them the night before we went to trial for that tax evasion in '88?
Lucille: Oh, yeah. We had to hide all that Boy Fight money.
George Sr.: Yeah. You gave me that "in case you're going away" present. That got the jitters out of me. What do you think about doing that with Dusty?
Lucille: How can you ask me that?
George Sr.: I just know how you can be. There was a time right after Gob was born when you grew cold and contemptuous of everyone.
Lucille: You remember that?
George Sr.: Well, only because it's still going on.
Lucille: Maybe I've pulled away from him. In fact, most nights he goes back home to sleep in his own bed. Which is fine. I- I want his head in his work.
George Sr.: Huh. That doesn't necessarily mean yours has to take the night off. Hey, I hate the idea, but we gotta do something to get his confidence in that courtroom, and I am willing to shut my eyes and let it happen.
Lucille: Now you know how I felt all those years, George.

Quote from Narrator

Narrator: Lucille could tell there was tension among her boyfriend's staff, and she felt compelled to say...
Lucille: How rich is this sand hobo?
Narrator: Well, yeah, she did say that. But about the staff, she also said...
Lucille: I'm going to [bleep] him.
Narrator: Oh, ap- apologies. I don't know why I thought she said something about the staff.
