Recurring jokes worth remembering: The crazy ways everybody does a chicken impression — “coo coo ka-cha, coo coo ka-cha!”

Guest stars: Charlize Theron is Michael’s British love interest, Rita, and Dave Thomas is Trevor, Rita’s uncle. Harry Hamlin guest-stars as himself, sitting with the prosecution in court.

Most sexual tension: Lucille, George Sr. and Buster’s rubber hand (guuuuuh).

Allusions to Tobias being gay
: “I so very much would like to be in your prostate-ticular,” “I suppose I’m buy-curious” and “Oh, I can just taste those meaty, leading-man parts in my mouth.”

Best narrator commentary: “Michael was filled with self-loathing. Had he been Jack the Ripper, he would’ve soothed himself in a most unsavory way. But instead, he just sat on his car and ate a whole thing of candy beans” and “No one was making fun of Andy Griffith. I can’t emphasize that enough.”

Next on “Arrested Development”: Michael Bluth will return in “Forget-Me-Now.”
