George Michael Bluth: [George Michael is in love with his ethics teacher] I don't want to let down Miss Baerly. She's nice, you know?
Lindsay Funke: She's interesting... and pretty?
George Michael Bluth: Well, I don't know why I'm telling you this. I guess there's just some things you can't always say to your dad.

Arrested Development continues its first season
1 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The first season was originally supposed to have 13 episodes but it got extended to 22. This is the 14th episode, and in a way it feels like a new beginning; this is where the family adopts Annyong, who appears in the rest of the first season and the beginning of the second, and finally plays a major role in the end. Mainly, the episode is about Michael finding a new girlfriend... who his son George Michael is also infatuated with.

Mostly I like Michael unlucky in love, and Heather Graham wasn't anything special, but this episode nevertheless has a few priceless moments. Even though George Michael largely overcomes his crush on his cousin Maeby in the 13th episode, there are still several incest jokes regarding both Maeby and Lindsay. GOB wanting revenge on Michael for the Marta storyline also gave us some good jokes and it was nice to explore the aftermath of that storyline.
