Trivia

When Bob Loblaw, (played by Scott Baio,) says it's not the first time he's had to replace Barry Zuckerkorn as a younger person and "heartthrob", it may be a reference to Baio's character Chachi on Happy Days, appearing on that show as the younger "heartthrob" nephew of Fonzie (played by Henry Winkler).

Quotes

Tobias Fünke: You're forgetting, Lindsay, that as a psychiatrist, I was a professional twice over - an analyst and a therapist. The world's first "analrapist".
Lindsay Funke: Yeah, and you were almost arrested for those business cards.
Tobias Fünke: [after showing the business card] Yes, but I didn't stop because of the police inquiries, I stopped to help raise our little girl. Where is Maeby, anyways?

What a fun, sexy time for us
17 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rock the house! Forget Me Now is definitely one of the better episodes of the first half of season 3. The episode starts by introducing Bob Loblaw and Larry the Surrogate, each funny in their own way. It then handles Rita better than any other episode, effectively playing with the question of whether she's a villainous spy or just mentally disabled. The outrageous fact that the Bluths kidnap, beat and drug her, and the resonating themes of Michael being embarrassed by his family, all make me think Rita was a worthwhile character, though she later sticks around too long.

Outside Rita, Forget Me Now is also great at handling the cousin incest subplot. The narrator finally acknowledges Maeby has a crush on George Michael, while she simultaneously dates her other cousin, Steve Holt. The "fun, sexy time for you" and "gonna go get sexy" lines are deliciously awkward.

That said, Forget Me Now is not perfect. The narrator pointing out the use of the phrase "arrested development" on the show is so blunt it's insulting, and the Mary Poppins doll is lazy physical humour. Still, for the crazy material that does manage to be funny, Forget Me Now is not an episode to be forgotten.
