The Fantastic Arrested Development Drinking Party Experience

This past Friday we decided to honor the Bluth family by overindulging in alcohol. What better way to celebrate a fictional family’s woes? I printed some cue sheets before leaving work. This is what they looked like at my office desk.

I decided to make some bean dip since my friends have annoying dietary restrictions (just kidding) and it happens to be A) vegan B) lactose free and C) gluten free

I put 4 jalapenos in it, but removed the seeds from 3 of them. Elissa managed to get lots of pieces with seeds because she is unfortunate and down on life.

I also made some bread for the cheese.

Wang showed up early and surprised me while I was doing my pilates workout.

Apparently Tom and Jenelle having matching helmets now. Things are getting weird.

Here is Andrea and the food. I decided to cut up carrots and celery last minute in case anyone was still clinging to their New Years resolutions.

This is what the bread looked like after it was baked, sliced, and placed near the cheese.

I made sure everyone studied the cue sheets.

This is Jenna. She had a crazy red shirt on that looked brighter than normal because it was next to her black pants. Very clever Jenna..

I told Page I was going to take a candid portrait of her.


Lots of black pants. So emo!

Eventually we got around to watching the show. If you’re curious, here’s the cue sheet we used:

  • Kitty shows her breasts
  • There is a hop-on reference

  • Michael refers to Ann as something besides Ann (egg, yam, Annhog)
  • There is any reference to Michael being a robot (not crying)
  • There is George Michael-Maeby relationship reference.
  • Lucille rips on Lindsay’s appearance
  • Lucille drinks in the early morning
  • I’ve made a huge mistake
  • “Come on!”
  • Someone does a chicken impression and/or dance
  • A “Peanuts” reference is made or seen
  • The final countdown is heard
