According to the Notes Section of the Arrested Development Wiki for this episode, S1 Ep3, The Parents Television Council (PTC) had troubles with the profanity in the series, especially since in this episode Buster had two long strings of profanity.It also noted that Tony Hale personally does not use profanity, so, if the script called for it like here, he ...

Ann is made up to be rather plain and frumpy, so it's not so much that everyone else in the Bluth family dislikes her, they just don't see what George Michael sees in her. Michael in particular seems to think his son can do much better, and often gets Ann's name wrong, calling her Egg, Bland, Plant, and of course, "...Her?" It's probably one of the ...

According to TheFilmStage; Jason Bateman then confirmed on Twitter that they will shoot 10 episodes and the movie will follow. He expects an early 2013 release, but the network on where these initial episodes will air, or the studio that will produce/distribute, haven’t been locked down either. Hurwitz said they don’t own the property outright and “there is ...

I don't know if there's a definitive reason why Buster doesn't do a chicken dance over the course of the show, but there are a few possibilities that could make sense depending on how much you want to read between the lines. Your thought concerning GOB using his dance to intimidate Buster is certainly something to consider. It's probably also important to ...

As far as I can tell there is no more footage. The DVDs do not include it as a special feature or in the deleted/extended scenes. It is possible that a little more footage was shot than actually aired, however, your logic that they wouldn't set up a shot like that for a few seconds of footage is not really true. Arrested Development was notorious for having ...

It was simply a matter of Tobias being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He walked into the sting operation and said: "Is there a little girl in here? Daddy needs to get his rocks off." He's simply referring to his daughter when he says "little girl", and is indicating he needs help getting his rock suit off, as he was impersonating The Thing. ...

Unfortunately for the finest-show-that-has-ever-aired-on-television, I believe these to be plot holes. As stated in season two, an annual Christmas tradition by Newport Beach youths is to destroy the banana stand by throwing it into the ocean. Seeing as how this occurs each year, there is no rational explanation for "250 cc's of [Michael's] father" to be ...

The first string of profanity might be along the lines of and you'll be eating my shit that falls out (..?) inside of your mouth but I haven't watched this scene with a higher resolution/quality yet.

The frozen goods obviously could not survive. It's absurd. It's intended to be absurd. Arrested Development consists entirely of absurd, unrealistic situations--that's the wellspring of its humor. If any portion of the story ever turns out to be realistic, that would probably indicate a mistake on the writers' part.

I think it makes sense. Lucille was hiding it in a certain place and then transferred it to the banana stand after the fire... It does makes sense to change where you stash valuable things every once in a while... Also, "there's always money in the banana stand" might not be as literal as it sounds, but rather as a hint, like, "I recently hid money in case ...

The Arrested Development wiki has a page for this episode that describes her as "a younger Latino woman, possibly Lupe's daughter". This exact wording is repeated in the Wikipedia article for the episode and in many other pages presumably from the same source. However, the NPR page for this episode describes her simply as "Lupe's daughter", without any ...
