    Illusions, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money.

    just started watching this show, and i am in awe. so endlessly hilarious.

    I'm still laughing over this line from the lessons episode:

    "He's dead... You killed him when you left the door open with the air conditioner on"

    I loved her freakout over the country club. "My system's not used to curly fries" And then "Take it back. If I wanted something your thumb touched, I’d eat the inside of your ear." Every time I have a sloppy server at a restaurant, I want to say that to him/her.

    Searching for the exact wording, I found some others that I just freaking love:

    GOB-Zero hour, Michael. It’s the end of the line. I’m the firstborn. I’m sick of playing second fiddle. I’m always third in line for everything. I’m tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I’m mad about, and I’m taking over.

    George Sr-Daddy horny, Michael.

    Tobias-I just blued myself.

    Narrator: Tobias listens to a day's worth of his own words, to see what Michael was referring to...
    Tobias Fünke: [on tape] ... even if it means me taking a chubby, I will suck it up.
    Tobias Fünke: Nothing wrong with that.
    Tobias Fünke: [on tape] Oh, I've been in the film business for a while, but I just can't seem to get one in the can.
    Tobias Fünke: It's out of context.
    Tobias Fünke: [on tape] I wouldn't mind kissing that man between the cheeks.
    Narrator: ...and he realized there is something distinct about the way he speaks.
    Tobias Fünke: Tobias, you blowhard.
    [chuckles]

    Michael Bluth: [calling from prison, taking about his brother, Gob] I've got a nice hard cot with his name on it.
    Lucille: You would do that to your brother?
    Michael Bluth: I said "cot".

    Lindsay Funke: Did you enjoy your meal, Mom? You drank it fast enough.
    Lucille: Not as much as you enjoyed yours. You want the belt to buckle, not your chair.
    [server sets a dessert of Bananas Foster on fire]
    Lucille: You might want to let that fire go out before you stick your face in it.
    Lindsay Funke: That's funny, 'cause I was gonna say "You might wanna lean away from that fire since you're soaked in alcohol."
    Lucille: Mine was better.

    Lindsay Funke: I'm saying every time something starts to go well for you, you blow it.
    Tobias Fünke: Nothing has ever gone well for me, and you know that.
    Lindsay Funke: That's my point, you...
    [sees Mabey]
    Lindsay Funke: ... handsome cowboy, you.
    Tobias Fünke: Oh, great. And now you're mocking me. You selfish coun-
    [Notices Mabey]
    Tobias Fünke: ... try music loving lady. Hello, Maeby.

    Michael: My mom is very stressed out, and she needs something I can't give her, um... maybe a little "afternoon delight".
    Narrator: Oscar thought that Michael was referring to a particular brand of cannabis named Afternoon Deelite, a strain famous for slowing behavior.
    Oscar: Well sure, my question is, which way do I try to get it in her?
    Michael: I don't need any details.
    Oscar: Maybe I'll put it in her brownie
    Michael: Hey.

    Michael: I think George Michael is hiding Ann in the attic.
    Lindsay Funke: From the Nazis?

    I can't believe I didn't watch this show when it originally aired. What the hell was I watching instead?
    My husband and I started watching the show on netflix a few months ago and I don't think I've laughed so hard in all my life. Obviously, I love the show.
