The TV show, dubbed by many a modern classic, centers on the problems that occur when level-headed son Michael Bluth takes over family affairs after his father is imprisoned. But the rest of his spoiled, dysfunctional family are making his job unbearable.

Young Lucille Bluth: Rosa! Why is this still a mess?
Young George Bluth: She said it’s… uh, Cinco de Mayo. She’s taken the day off.
Young Lucille Bluth: She said that? She called it “Cinco de Mayo”?
Young George Bluth: She did.
Young Lucille Bluth: Ugh. Why can’t they just call it May fifth?

Young Lucille Bluth: I wonder if we shouldn’t have a plan in regards to bookkeeping. In case we accidentally make a mistake or get caught.

Buster Bluth: (writing a letter) I miss you mommy, camp is scary at times. When I was cold you clothed me, when I was hungry… Uh… How do I say this?
Young Lucille Bluth: Suckled at your champagne-glass breasts.
Buster Bluth: Oh, that’s good!
Young Lucille Bluth: It doesn’t matter, I’ll be proofing it anyway.
