Show: Arrested Development (“Altar Egos” & “Shock and Aww”)
Role: Smitten girlfriend/government mole
Best Line: “Oh, I hate when you call yourself old. You’re new to me!” although, honestly, our favorite line was spoken by one of the main characters talking about Jane Lynch’s character: “Is this why you wanted to fight this thing, so you could run off with this great redwood of a whore?”
If you have never watched Arrested Development, you need to stop reading this and, right now, start watching it. Or put it on your Netflix queue. Or write it on your To-Do list, or whatever it is that you do to guarantee that you will get to it, soon.
There, now. Jane Lynch plays Cindi Lightballoon (whomever thought of that name hopefully got a raise, or at least a gold star), an undercover FBI agent who falls in love with the incarcerated George, Sr. and tries to use her knowledge to him beat the government’s case.
Yeah, we know none of that really makes much sense unless you’ve watched the show, but trust us, watching this series is a weekend well-spent. The best we can do is give you the image below and point you to this preview of “Altar Egos” on Hulu. Cindi Lightballoon is just barely introduced when the free preview concludes. Womp womp.
