Recap: Arrested Development S 1 E 8 In God We Trust

Interwiki: WikipediaWikiaBalboa Observer-PicayuneIMDB

Watch now: HuluNetflix

The Arrested Development episode "In God We Trust" provides examples of:

  • Christmas Episode: The plot revolves around a Christmas pageant (although, ironically, "My Mother, The Car" aired closer to Christmas, with this episode airing December 14, 2003, and "My Mother, The Car" airing a week later).
  • Out of Order: Although this episode comes before "My Mother, the Car" in both Broadcast and Production order, it appears after it on the Season One DVD, as makes sense, as Buster and Lucille Austero start their relationship in that one, and go on their first date in this one.
  • Stealth Insult:
    Barry Zuckercorn: (to Lucille) What are you doing, pilates? Because no 40-year-old woman should look like that.
    Michael: Well, no 40-year-old woman does look like that.
