Narrator: Now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It’s... Arrested Development.
Narrator: Michael Bluth was working at home when his son made a curious request.
George Michael: Dad, would anyone miss this Peter and the Wolf read-along record?
Michael: Actually, I think that’s part of the model house decorations. Why?
George Michael: You’re right. My girlfriend Ann wants to have a Christian music bonfire here.
Michael: That sounds like some mild fun. I think we’ve got some Christmas music.
George Michael: Oh no, it’s not a “Christian music” bonfire. It’s a Christian “music bonfire.” You know, where we burn all satanic music. The thing is though, the only music I have is either instructional or humor.
Narrator: He’d been particularly fond of a CD of something called The Jerky Boys.
Maeby: Hey, George Michael, Jesus called, he wants your Thriller album.
Michael: Yeah, I don’t think the bonfire is such a great idea.
George Michael: I know it might be weird, but you know, Ann’s my girlfriend, so I think I’ll go buy some albums today. Hey, can you cover for me at the banana stand if I do that?
Michael: I’ll cover for you, pal. It’s been a long time since I’ve been down at that banana stand.
George Michael: Oh, okay, good. It’s the only way we’re ever going to get it air-conditioned.
Lucille: Michael, how would you like me to owe you a favor? I want you to bid on me at the charity auction this year.
Michael: Okay, now I’d like to use up my favor and decline. Isn’t that Buster’s annual job?
Lucille: Yes, but I can’t have a replay of last year.
Michael: And you’re embarrassed to have Oscar bid on you.
Lucille: With his two pair of pants— you bet.
Lindsay: All right, I need to borrow a fur.
Michael: I thought you were antifur, Lindsay.
Michael: In fact, weren’t you protesting some hunter gun thing yesterday?
Lindsay: I stopped by. I hadn’t chosen a side.
Lindsay: Murderers! You’re all murderers! Murderers!
Frank Wrench: And there are plenty of rules about guns already on the books. You’re not allowed to sell a gun to a kid. You’re not even allowed to fire your gun in the air...
Lindsay: Is that Frank Wrench?
Frank Wrench: ...on the Fourth of July.
Narrator: In fact, it was People’s Choice nominated actor Moses Taylor, famous for his portrayal of the rule-abiding detective Frank Wrench, star of the television show Wrench.
Frank Wrench: Well, that’s one rule I’m not going to follow.

Just curious: how come the pictures of Michael answering his phone are there, but not pictures of George Michael and his friend MAKING the call? Does anybody have pics of that scene? I laughed hysterically when I watched it and would love to see pics of it. Thanks!
