The cast of 'Arrested Development'



Jeffrey Tambor (George Bluth Sr)
Pop Pop found it difficult to pin down a favourite moment, but only because he was happy any time David Cross 'blue himself' as awkward, confused Tobias Fünke.

"I'm going to go with Blue Man - always makes me laugh," said Tambor. "The whole idea, I think, is emblematic of what we do."



David Cross (Tobias Fünke)
Speaking of Cross, he couldn't pick out a single moment either, nominating season one's 'Pier Pressure' ("That's why... you always leave a note!") as his favourite episode instead.

"The entire episode is my favourite moment," he said. "The whole thing - the way it starts, the jokes within it, the journey of it… it's great."

Michael Cera (George Michael Bluth)
Remember Gob's dubious double act with Franklin the puppet? And remember when Buster got a hold of the foul-mouthed, bad-ass dummy?

"When Tony as Buster does the Franklin puppet - that makes me laugh so hard," Michael Cera admitted, when asked to name his favourite Arrested Development moment.



Alia Shawkat (Maeby Fünke)
Alia's favourite moment was a beat that's repeated time and time again - along with his magical mishaps and Segway slip-ups, another of Gob's defining characteristics is the way he growls his younger brother's name...

"I like Gob saying 'Michael'," said the actress, in her best Will Arnett voice. "It sets a nice tone."



Tony Hale (Buster Bluth)
For the man who brings man-child Buster to life, there was one clear choice - any time Arrested Development has one of its Charlie Brown moments...

"Any time the Charlie Brown song comes back is always awesome," Hale grinned.
