Did You Know?


Martin Short's character Uncle Jack is based loosely on real-life 90-year-old fitness guru Jack LaLanne. Speech mannerisms, style of dress, and even the dyed jet-black hair are all trademarks of LaLanne, who, unlike Short's character, remains extremely mobile and agile at the time of this episode's first airing.

In the "On the next Arrested Development" segment, where Tobias, at Micheal's suggestion, listens to the tape recording he took of what he says during a day, the first phrase he listens to was from an earlier episode, Queen for a Day, which occurred before he ever got the recorder. See more »

Michael: Are you sure it's such a good idea to be sitting up so high?
Uncle Jack: Ah, don't worry. Dragon's got me.
Michael: Dragon's in the bathroom.
Uncle Jack: Mama!

Under-appreciated gem!
14 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode has low fan approval, as noted in the DVD commentary, because of a one-time character seen throwing up, and apparently viewers didn't think that this was Arrested Development's style of humour. But that's such a small part of the episode. As one should expect for an episode co-written by creator Mitch Hurwitz and Jim Vallely, Ready, Aim, Marry Me also sees the main characters- except George Michael and Maeby- at their finest. Tobias' innuendos are frequent and funny, but there's also a great scene where Michael talks to his two siblings, GOB and Lindsay, at the office, and GOB and Lindsay are acting so incompetent, lazy, obscene, mean and stupid that you have to feel sorry for Michael. This leads to Michael understandably sacrificing his sister's honour for the sake of the family business in another funny gag, but as it turns out Lindsay is actually willing to take a hit for the family- maybe she's all right after all. A strong Lindsay and Tobias episode with a delightful ending, Ready, Aim, Marry Me is generally very funny and smart. It thus fits in well with the other second season episodes.
