* DisappearingBox: During George Sr.'s retirement party, GOB hid his father in the tomb to hide him from the Securities and Exchange Commission. He hid behind the revolving door in the tomb, which kept him out of sight until the police dogs found him. This was broadcast in-universe on the FOX 6 news and GOB was subsequently kicked out of The Alliance of Magicians.

Michael returns to the model home to back, where he overhears George Michael confessing to Lindsay that he wishes the family would stay together, since he's been so lonely since [[MissingMom the death of his mother]]. Moved by this, Michael decides to stay in California and try to save the company. The episode ends with the family gathered together around a Monopoly board, where Michael announces to George Michael that Lindsay, Tobias, and Maeby will move in with them in the model home. George Michael is delighted to hear this, but his happiness quickly turns into worry when he learns that he will be sharing a room with his cousin.

* {{Squick}}: "Sounds like you saved enough skin to make ten new boys."



* ThrowItIn: David Cross stutters at the beginning of Tobias' community theater audition, singing "I'm a Bad, Bad Man". Though unintentional, the stutter take was used.
* TheOtherDarrin: T-Bone is depicted as a fairly slender guy in the NextEpisodePreview at the end. T-Bone in the next episode looks completely different.

''(a moment of awkward silence)''\\



'''Michael:''' Oh, okay. Well, then, so, technically itís not really an "intervention". It's a little bit more of an ''imposition'', if you think about it.

However, after a disastrous experiment with having Buster as the acting CEO of the Bluth Company, the Bluths realize that only Michael has the skills to keep the family business afloat, so they stage an "intervention" (which Michael [[YouKeepUsingThatWord points out is actually an imposition]]) to tell Michael to help them. Michael [[RefusalOfTheCall refuses]], explaining that he has gotten a job in Phoenix, but Lindsay says he should visit their father before leaving. Michael figures that he should at least give George the courtesy of a formal resignation, and visits him in the prison asking why he didn't get the post as partner. George informs him that he put Lucille in charge because he knew the SEC where after him, and if Michael was promoted he would have been arrested as an accomplice. So he chose Lucille, as he believes they cannot arrest a husband and wife for the same crime. Michael tells him that isn't true, and George curses the advice of his attorneys.
