Goofs

In the "On the next" segment, Tobias is shown shooting his supervisor's revolver at mice on the floor. Muzzle flashes and the gunshot sound effects were added in post production as he mimed firing the gun during filming. There are four instances of him firing the weapon on screen, but only the first three have the muzzle flash. The fourth has only the sound effect. See more »

Take Your Daughter To Work Day!
10 January 2019 | by gab-14712See all my reviews

One of the things I love about Arrested Development is how the show won't hold back against certain political or social notions. We have seen and will continue to see the show rip off things like the idea of controlling corporations, the Iraqi War, and the media just to name a few. This episode tackles one of my favorite childhood memories-Take Your Child to Work Day, or Take Your Daughter to Work Day in AD's case. The episode incorporates this event to often wildly hilarious moments. The slight visual gags that explain this event is funny- when the girl shadowing her prison guard father shouts, "No Touching!," I knew this would be a very funny episode!

In the past, Michael took George-Michael to work on "Take Your Daughter to Work Day," but he decides to take Maeby to act as a proper role model for her unlike her parents. They even decide on a pact to not lie to each other. That pact so happens to be on the same day where the police decides to question Michael on Kitty Sanchez's disappearance. Lindsay decides to take on responsibility by working at a clothing boutique and Tobias decides to get a job at that same boutique as a security guard. Finally, Buster is jealous over Lucille's interest in Annyong's soccer game.

Each storyline in "Not Without My Daughter" delivers many funny moments and dialogue. I will just describe my favorites in no particular order. Lindsay actually purchased her new clothing with her money, but she is afraid to tell her family she used money to purchase the clothes, so she just said she shoplifted them. Watching the scenes with George-Michael as Michael's "daughter." That one creepy quote from George-Michael, "Hey, Dad, you're out of sanitary napkins in the ladies' restroom." Listening Buster trying to discuss sports with George Sr. was great! I really liked how the episode tied up loose ends together, especially regarding the case of Kitty. That was played off as dramatic with a hint of amusement. I really enjoyed this episode.

My Grade: A
