* Steve Holt, much to his horror, thinks he has slept with Maeby, whom he by now knows is his cousin (actually Maeby, who was LockedOutOfTheLoop and didn't know Steve was her cousin, just drugged him with a roofie and told that was what happened), and seeks guidance from a parental figure:
-->'''Steve Holt:''' ''(to Gob)'' [[LikeFatherLikeSon I've made a huge mistake...]]\\
'''Gob:''' I know the feeling... I had you. ''(embraces Steve in a tight hug)'' I'm your father, Steve Holt! I can't hide from it anymore.\\
'''Steve Holt:''' ''(tearfully)'' I won't forget this... ''dad''. ''(runs off)''
'''Gob:''' ''(sobs as he takes a "Forget-Me-Now" from his pill box)'' I will. ''(puts the pill in his mouth)'' I ''will''! ''(downs the pill with a glass of booze)''

* Tobias putting his role of "Analyst" and "Therapist" together to create [[spoiler: Analrapist]].
--> '''Tobias''': It's pronounced [[spoiler: Uh-Nale-Ruh-Pist!]]\\
'''Buster''': It's not really the pronunciation that concerned me.


Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Forget-Me-Now]]
* Bob Loblaw's TV commercial is a fast-fire collection of funny moments all on its own:
** During the commercial Bob Loblaw is depicted sitting with a heavy law book, which he closes dramatically ''every'' time he finishes a sentence. And he manages to do this on top of his thumb every time, making him visibly flinch.
** The commercial says that Bob Loblaw is specialized in defending people from the following charges:
--->BANK FRAUD, EMBEZZLEMENT, CONSPIRACY, MONEY LAUNDERING, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers IDENTITY THEFT*]] [-[[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers (*CASH ONLY)]]-], INSIDER TRADING
** And of course:
--->'''Bob Loblaw:''' Why should you go to jail for a crime someone else... ''[[BaitAndSwitch noticed]]?''
* The family is introduced to Larry Middleman, a "professional surrogate" and who gets instructions on what to say by George Sr.:
-->'''Larry:''' Yeah, but you're not the one stuck under house arrest like a sitting duck.\\
'''Michael:''' Oh, yeah, that's my father. Thatís why we had the meeting here -- so that he couldn't interfere.\\
'''Larry:''' Interfere? I ought to pull down your pants and spank your ass raw.\\
'''Michael:''' ...I'm sorry. Have we met?\\
'''Bob Loblaw:''' Oh, yes, this Larry Middleman. Heís your father's surrogate.\\
'''Michael:''' ''(shakes hands with Larry)'' Surrogate?\\
'''Larry:''' ''(smiles politely as he shakes hands with Michael)'' That's right, you dumb '''*bleep*'''.
** Of course, Larry is far from perfect, often displaying DullSurprise and talking his instructions too literally:
--->'''George Sr.:''' So, you're saying "shred the evidence"?\\
'''Bob Loblaw:''' No, that's illegal. The prosecution is entitled to that evidence. [[CouldSayItBut Without it, they don't have a case]].\\
George Sr.: So, you're saying "shred the evidence"?\\
'''Bob Loblaw:''' That's a felony. And I certainly couldnít endorse anything like that.\\
'''George, Sr.:''' Got ya. Wink.\\
'''Larry:'''' [[ReadingTheStageDirectionsOutLoud Wink. Did you say "wink" or did you wink?]]
* Lindsay tries to hit on Bob Loblaw:
-->'''Lindsay:''' Just so you know... I'm looking to get divorced. Are you interested?\\
'''Bob Loblaw:''' Yes.\\
''(Lindsay smiles and leaves; Bob Loblaw waits until she is out of earshot and then...)''\\
'''Bob Loblaw:''' ''(to his stenographer)'' Let's call that a half hour.
* Tobias explains his job title:
'''Tobias:''' Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over! An analyst and a therapist. The world's first [[spoiler:[[TheProblemWithPenIsland analrapist]]]]!\\
'''Lindsay:''' Yes, and you were almost arrested for those business cards.\\
''(cut to said business card)''\\
'''Tobias:''' Yes. No, it did not look good ''on paper''.
** Tobias decides to offer Buster his services as an [[spoiler:analrapist]]:
--->'''Tobias:''' Here, take my business card. ''(hands Buster his card)''
'''Buster:''' ''(horrified)'' Gah!\\
'''Tobias:''' No, no, it's pronounced [[spoiler:Uh-Nale-Ruh-Pist!]]\\
'''Buster:''' It's not really the pronunciation that concerned me.
* Michael is not impressed with Gob's attempts to impress George Sr. through Larry:
-->'''Michael:''' Look, Gob, instead of trying to impress your fake father, maybe you should spend some time with your ''real'' son.\\
'''Gob:''' ''(trying to laugh it off)'' Steve Holt's not my son.\\
'''George Michael:''' ''Steve Holt?!'' What, the moron jock?\\
'''Gob:''' ''(furious)'' That's my ''son'', you pothead!
* Tobias discusses Buster's MommyIssues:
-->'''Tobias:''' You see, Buster, it wasn't the seal that you couldnít stand up to. It was... ''Lucille''.\\
'''Buster:''' ''(gasps)''\\
'''Tobias:''' ''(gasps)'' Oh, I'm getting chills! If this was a Lifetime Moment of Truth movie, this would be our act break!\\
''(short ukulele jingle plays but nothing happens)''\\
'''Narrator:''' But it wasn't.
** Then when Buster accidentally knocks Rita cold:
--->'''Tobias:''' Hey, talk about cathartic. Now ''that's'' an act break!\\
''([[BrickJoke short ukulele jingle plays then]] [[FadeToWhite Cut to White]])''
* In panic over having knocked Rita unconscious and then drugged her, the family hastily rearranges the "Welcome Rita" party to be a party for Michael instead:
-->'''Gob:''' Take a look at banner, Michael!\\
'''Banner:''' Family Love Michael
** The woozy Rita then returns:
--->'''Narrator:''' Everyone froze. Michael feared he'd been caught in a lie about his family. His family feared they'd been caught by a woman they clubbed, drugged and left on a bench. It was awkward.
*** They then accidentally let it slip what they have done:
---->'''Lucille:''' And her, too good for us? Huh! Buster, [[SayingTooMuch you should have finished the job.
'''Michael:''' "Job"? What "job"?
'''Lucille:''' Did I say "job"? I meant "Gob".
'''Gob:''' [[DiggingYourselfDeeper Buster's the one that hit her! I just gave her the roofie!]]
'''Michael:''' ...''"Roofie"?!''\\
'''Gob:''' [[InsistentTerminology Forget-Me-Now]].
'''Michael:''' ''(in disbelief)'' You ''beat'' and ''drugged'' Rita?
* The OnTheNext segment:
-->'''Narrator:''' Lindsay tries to work off her debt with Bob Loblaw...\\
'''Lindsay:''' ''(flirtatiously)'' I'm willing to debase myself.\\
'''Bob Loblaw:''' Get a maid's uniform and come by my house around 7:00.\\
'''Lindsay:''' There is no way to misinterpret that...\\
'''Narrator:''' Except the one.\\
