    I was going to awesome the OP, but I thought there might be someone missing, so I started looking up actors on IMDB, and in the time I spent away from the forums, someone hacked into my account and posted my home address, which allowed a deranged murderer to break in and attack me with a machete, and OH GOD HE'S STILL HERE, AAUGHH MY ARM! HE CUT OFF MY ARM!

    And that's why... you don't forget to include J. Walter Weatherman!

    Anybody else find the milk note on netflix?

    I heard about this kind of thing a couple weeks ago

    Which version of Netflix are people seeing it on? I use the PS3 version and have seen nothing.

    @KalTorak I was actually hoping someone would do that very thing. Thank you.

    Also holy shit I love this show. Just got a joke I didn't catch before.

    A few weeks ago I was browsing Wikipedia aimlessly (as I tend to do sometimes) and came upon the page for The Wizard of Oz, which led to Judy Garland, and her role as a gay icon. Apparently the phrase "friend of Dorothy" is a slang term for a gay man. I had never heard this before, or at least not that I could recall.

    But now I'm watching the ep where
    Tobias is in prison and gives therapy to White Power Bill, who then kills himself. Little Justice greets him outside of the cell with "You killed him. White Power Bill's dead! Like the Wicked Witch! All hail Dorothy!"

    And then Little Justice walks up to George wearing red shoes and when George questions him about it, he says "I'm a friend of Dorothy's now!"

    Goddamn, this show

    I just figured it was setting up
    the inevitable reveal that Tobias was gay.

    But that's impressive.

    Other things I've noticed on recent watch throughs:

    - In late season one, Lupe's wearing a sweater that reads "Stanford Institute of Cartography"

    - In season three when Trevor is looking for Rita, George and Lucille try to throw him off the trail by saying "Legoland! They said they were going to Legoland." When Trevor shows up for a really quick shot towards the end of that episode calling Rita back to him, if you look under his jacket, you'll notice he's wearing a Legoland shirt

    Watching through the episode where Michael almost marries a retarded woman with the commentary on is amazing, if only for them pointing out all the little jokes they sprinkled in foreshadowing her stupidity.

    My favorite part of the Rita arc is that it's one of the most trenchant bits of satire about Manic Pixie Dream Girls ever, and it was written before that was even a term.

    Lucille enters the room.
    Michael (to Gob): "You're getting rid of the Seaward."
    Lucille: "I'm not leaving."

    I had to think about it, but my favourite episode is:
    Arrested Development.

    Pier Pressure, for me, is up there with South Park's Scott Tenorman Must Die and Seinfeld's The Marine Biologist in a rare club where the entire episode is the setup for the punchline in the final scene which is so funny it knocks you on your ass. Or leaves you staring at the TV with your mouth agape, in the case of Scott Tenorman.

    my favorite thing about this show is that one of the foreshadowed jokes was that tobias was going to be revealed to be a black man

    The best scene of the Rita arc is right when Michael finds out that she's mentally handicapped at the hotel.

    She gets ready to show Michael her tiny teddy but it's a stuffed bear and she's like "TINY TEDDY!? OH!??"

    Her face and voice kill me everytime. I wish I could find that scene on youtube

    edit- I mean, I get it. It explains all the racially awkward one-liners around Tobias, but still... what?

    For some reason, some of my favorite lines are in that episode - when the narrator repeatedly refers to Michael eating "an entire thing of candy beans."

    it's just a really weird joke that comes out of nowhere but yet makes total sense given everything leading up to that point

    its the most Arrested Development joke

    unless you meant "what" as in "this was really a thing" in which case yes tobias was going to be a black guy with that condition that makes the skin lose its pigmentation

    they just never got a chance to make it because of being cancelled

    So yeah, par for the course

    from the girl who played maeby
    [The writers have] gone on little tangents where you think they're going to start a storyline and they'll pull it back. I remember they were going to do one about Tobias actually being a rare black person, where he would have this rare disease and was actually black. It's these hysterical, crazy ideas that they could have continued on.”

    given all the weird race jokes about tobias in the show it totally makes sense as a thing they were setting up and just never got to do

    Lindsay: People hear the name Tobias, they think ‘big black guy.’
    Tobias: Well, obviously, I’m not a big guy. I’m not a Carl Weathers, par example.

    I just realized, if someone had never seen this show, the character summary would just seem like complete and utter insanity.

    Also I used to have an animated gif avatar of the Buster photo booth thing. I need to find it.
