It's 10pm. Do you know where your friends are? Well, these friends are in their basement with Hillary the dog, still bingeing on AD. I feel sick, I feel dizzy, I feel ALIVE. Our previous installment of the prop bonanza from Episodes 1-7 was blown out of the water by Episodes 8, 9, and 10. There's just so much!! They made so many things!!!
Apologies for the lateness of this post. We had to take a later afternoon break to, I don't know, see some sunshine, eat dinner, give the dog a bath. Human things. But no more. We have returned to the basement, as prone, semiotically obsessed consumers, back on our own Horse, Arrested Development.
Keep reading to see Lindsay Bluth's original class president banner, the NEW DEAD DOVE (Do Not Eat!), and some very special advertisements for Tobias's previous work in "educational" films.
And, of course, SPOILER ALERT.
The nightclub "And" by "Jeremy Piven." Pronounced "Ahnd" and "Pi-vhen." Thanks, Entourage credits.
I think Vested Interest is a good name for a rich person's boat. I predict this boat will reappear.
Ann Veal's Jesus, watching over her bed. Look at how his heart glows!
Attitude, a gay magazine not to be confused with Altitude, the in-flight magazine on Outwest Airlines, ran a feature bringing Tony Wonder out of closet and into the spotlight.
"The Newport Beach home of Tony Wonder -- World famous magician and new icon of all Friends of Dorothy -- has a waspy facade in keeping with the rest of this straight laced Southern California community, but on the inside it is literally a cabinet of wonder."
If you can somehow read the remainder, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's talk.
One of three amazing advertisements for Tobias' work at The Miracle Network. Father Marsala's John the Baptist.
Father Marsala's Embryo Dan: It Would Have Been a Wonderful Life. This is exactly what it looks like.
Finally topping off our tasteful trifecta of Tobias, Father Marsala's A Jew Came to Dinner .
The Church of Holy Enlightened Rapture!!!
The Busted Magic Bible Boulder and Feral Jesus both went for the bargain bid of $0 on Locker Hawkers.
The poster for Mark Cherry's Disney show, Pop A R.O.T.C.
I LOVE STEVE HOLT'S TINY BUG VAN.... BUG VAN BUG VAN!!!!
"Hey Joe with a bee Fun nite PS I have sifulus"
So begins Gob's roofie circle.
The bodega where Gob gets his roofie prescription "filled" also sells "Libros Adultos." This is where George Sr. gets his other prescription filled. There is, just as a note, an adult bookstore near-ish my house in Philadelphia called The Woodshop and it's basically in the middle of what we connoisseurs of affordable neighborhoods refer to as a "shooting gallery."
Johnny Bark Bee Colony: King of the Bees!
Herbert Love defends one-eared elephant reenactment. Other video highlights include:
"Love Calls Love Between A Man and A Woman Sacred, Man and Two Women, Better."
"Herbert Love 'What Would My Life Gain From Lying?"
"Love Tells Female Reporter to 'Mind Her Own Business'."
"Love Accused by Widow of Realtor Love 'It Was A Consoling Grope".
"Love Accused By Mailman's Daughter Love 'It Was a Con-soul Kiss".
"Latest Herbert Love Seems like 'Bad Campaign Ad' Parody"
I'm for Lucille 2 4 Congres. Me too, Lindsay.
Vote Lindsay Bluth for Class President. RICH PRETTY THIN (Sally Sitwell's not even that hot). A wise and tasteful campaign if there ever was one.
Sally Sitwell really goes straight for the gut: "I won't leave for two months and come back with a new nose like Lindsay did."
Marky Barks' pony costume idea. I love the question marks.
Marky Bark's face blindness made him confuse Nat King Cole with Herbert Love.
Fantastic 4: An Action Musical By Tobias Funke (MD, S.O.). Music, Lyrics, Choreography and Book by Alcoholics Anonymous.
I don't know anything about awards, but I am guessing those are the ones that actually belong to Liza Minelli. SIDENOTE: Meredith, who also writes for us, has a photo of her dad and Lucille 2 posing at a party taped to her refrigerator and even though it looks like a wax museum photo, it is 100% real.
Gangie's map to the Orange County Corrections L.I.T.E, or Ladies Internment Terrace Enclave.
Tobias is doing the "Bob Fosse" face in his office to try and get Lucille to open up. It fails, but I WANT THOSE POSTERS.
This is your moment of zen. Dove (Bar). Do Not Eat.
Where is Gob's message of love going to take us???
Quite honestly, I am exhausted, and I don't know where this is going. I never thought I would say this but I don't think I can watch any more Arrested Development today. Certainly, my [admittedly narcoleptic] dog is exhausted from spending the whole day sleeping on the sofa while I watched television.
Stay tuned for more. In the meantime, here's more Arrested Development coverage from Season 4 -- and test your knowledge of Seasons 1, 2, and 3:
