Ten best ‘Arrested Development’ jokes [SLIDESHOW]

If you’re anything like us, you’re anxiously awaiting the return of the comedy series “Arrested Development.”

Be patient: the show hits Netflix Sunday at 3:01 a.m. EST. Instead of counting down the hours, take our refresher course on the ten greatest AD gags.

  • Steve Holt, otherwise known as STEVE HOLT!, is a classmate of Maeby and George Michael's. It's appropriate that Michael should describe him as, "basically a young Gob," as Gob later learns that Steve is, in fact, his son. He finds this out, however, only after having short romances with both Lindsay and Maeby. (photo: Tumblr/maxrarmstrong)
  • George Bluth is nothing if not a good father. That's why he hired J. Walter Weatherman, a former employee who lost his arm in an accident, to teach his children lessons. Thanks to Weatherman, we'll always remember to leave a note, lest dad accidentally strike a man with his car and rip his arm off. (photo: Tumblr/capfly)
  • In addition to being the most oblivious member of the Bluth family, Tobias is also a "nevernude," which is exactly what it sounds like. Tobias never removes his trusty pair of cutoffs — ever. (photo: Tumblr/tragedyoforion)
  • Poor Gob — no matter how risky the trick (sorry — "illusion") his family never appreciates him for the true magician he at least tries to be. We'll always be huge Gob fans, even during his worst tricks ("illusions!"). (photo: Tumblr/thebluthcompany)
  • Look up "pride goeth before the fall" in the dictionary, and you'll find a photo of Gob Bluth. Whether it's allowing himself to be locked in jail and angering a prison gang, or vowing to be buried alive in his father's coffin, he usually realizes far too late that he's made a huge mistake.

  • If most of the Bluth family is to be believed, Michael is its most cowardly member. His mother, father, sister and brother Gob each taunt him with his or her own chicken impersonation -- none of which remotely resemble a chicken. Or sound like one, for that matter, with sounds ranging from the musical (a-coodle-doodle-doo!) to the inexplicable (cha-chee-chaw!). (photo: Tumblr/thebluthcompany)
  • Tobias Fünke, Lindsay Bluth's possibly (probably?) closeted husband, has a revelation in the series pilot and abandons his psychiatry practice to pursue acting. After his acting lessons with Carl Weathers go awry, Tobias vows to take his talents to the Blue Man Group. He covers himself in blue paint to get into character, and thus was born what is perhaps the most-quoted "Arrested Development" line: "I'm afraid I just blue myself." "There's gotta be a better way to say that," Michael replies.  (photo: Tumblr/galania)
  • "Arrested Development" is the story of the world's most dysfunctional family that gets caught in a corporate scandal. The family patriarch, George Bluth, rose to the top of the corporate ladder from his very first business: the Bluth Frozen Banana Stand. He insists that, "There's always money in the banana stand" — quite literally, as he lined the walls of the stand with cash. Too bad it all disappears when the stand burns to a crisp.

  • When Lucille's new adopted Korean son meets the family, he greets them with, "Annyong!" Unfortunately that's not his name, that's just the Korean word for "Hello." It's a shame he got stuck with the world's most clueless family, because for the rest of the series, his name is "Annyong." In the third season finale, he reveals his real name (Hel-loh, of course), and that he is responsible for the Bluths' downfall. (photo: Tumblr/acruzdemalto)
  • <em>Her?</em> Nothing puzzled the Bluth family quite so much as George Michael's attraction to his entirely forgettable girlfriend, Ann Veal. Their relationship may have been simply George Michael's way of distracting himself from his cousin, Maeby, but she'll always be the girl we love to accidentally leave in Mexico, and whose name we love to forget (Bland? Plain? Egg?). (photo: Tumblr/raychilidog)
