Michael learns the real secret behind the Bluth Company's international accounts - his dad may have been illegally building houses similar to the one he lives in in Iraq. George Sr. agrees to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence, but the family gets word that he has had a heart attack while in prison. The family goes to the hospital to visit, but learns that George Sr. has made an elaborate escape. Michael decides that he's had enough, and he and George-Michael decide to pack up and head to Phoenix.

When the narrator (Ron Howard
) refers to the history of Tobias (David Cross
)' "The Man Inside Me" book, a brief clip of the book on amazon is shown. Below the book cover, the website reads, "Customers who bought 'The Man Inside Me' also bought: Families with Low Self-Esteem by Tobias Funke (Author), Caged Wisdom by George Bluth, The Low-Carb, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-gender Diet by BJ Zuckercorn (Author)." Two of the works were introduced to the show, except the one by Barry Zuckercorn (played by Henry Winkler
), who occasionally exhibits homosexual tendencies. See more
In the opening scene when Michael uses the remote to turn the TV off, the trim work of the entertainment center comes loose and swings into a speaker, knocking it from the wall onto the floor. A moment later Lindsay enters the room, and as the camera pans back to Michael we can see over his shoulder that the speaker is back on the wall. According to the DVD commentary the speaker was not meant to fall down, explaining why it would be set back up between scenes. See more
