Lucille Bluth is the matriarch of the Bluth family who often seems to care more about her cocktails than her children. She is rude, elitist, entitled, domineering, and manipulative.

She constantly meddles in Michael's efforts to right the Bluth Company, admits that she never much cared for G.O.B. and frequently insinuates her rail thin daughter Lindsay is fat. She has also done a serious number on her youngest, Buster, who is almost physically incapable of living without her. It is said that he spent 11 months in her womb. He suffers from social anxiety, panic attacks and general lack of spine. When he tries to separate himself from his mother, he only ends up dating her best friend, also named Lucille.

She accidentally adopts a young Korean boy whose name she misinterprets as "Annyong," when it is the only thing he says; it means hello in Korean.

For decades she benefited from her husband's pilfering of company profits, never wanting to ask questions. She is accustomed to an expensive lifestyle full of spa treatments and being waited upon. (She has never looked a waiter in the eye.)

Background: Her grandchildren call her "Gangee." She knowingly and unknowingly carries on an affair with George's twin brother, Oscar. She was a member of the USO and dated General Anderson during the Vietnam War. She is a functioning alcoholic. Her best friend Lucille Austero is also her chief social rival.
