'Arrested Development' Rewatch: Season 2, episode 13 - 'Motherboy XXX'

arrested-development-motherboy-xxx.jpgWelcome to the "Arrested Development" Rewatch. Leading up to the release of Season 4, Zap2it will be taking a look back at the 53 episodes that made the show one of our most beloved TV comedies. We continue with episode 13 of Season 2, "Motherboy XXX," which first aired March 13, 2005. Watch the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" on Netflix.

Plot: The already pathological relationship between Lucille and Buster takes another turn when we learn about the annual Motherboy dance. Buster refuses to go this time, so Lucille ropes George Michael into it, forcing Michael and Buster to attempt a rescue. Meanwhile, Gob tries to get his marriage annulled and Tobias gets an acting job.

GIF-worthy scene:

Recurring jokes worth remembering: All the vanity license plates for roles Tobias didn't getting, ranging from "INM8 2" to "DR HOUSE." The hammy-on-purpose product placement bits for Burger King. Gob is still wearing his stripper pants, and Buster screams "I'm a monster!" again at the end of the episode.

Milestones: Amy Poehler makes her final appearance as Gob's wife.

Huge mistakes: Michael sidetracks his son from going to a Christian camp with Ann, leaving George Michael vulnerable when Lucille eyes a new Motherboy date.

Most sexual tension: Lindsay is suddenly attracted to Tobias now that he's a potential breadwinner.

Allusions to Tobias being gay: George Sr. tells Tobias that if Tobias plays him in Carl's show, "You play me, you gotta play me like a man, not some mincing little Polly ..."

Best narrator commentary: Re: Lucille and Buster winning "cutest couple" at past Motherboys, "As one entered sexual maturity and the other one left it, it became harder to win."

Next on "Arrested Development": Lindsay finds herself attracted to "Tobias." Gob blows his  chance at an annulment, and Maeby scares all the Promised Land campers.
