Because of his father's latest lie about a heart attack, Michael decides to leave his family and company behind. Lucille appoints Gob to be the new Bluth Company president, but he proves incapable and the position reverts back to Michael. George Sr.'s twin brother Oscar moves in with Lucille in an attempt to rekindle a previous love affair. After faking his death in Mexico, George Sr. returns to the family model home, where he hides in the attic. Meanwhile, Buster joins the army, but escapes serving in Iraq when his hand is bitten off by a loose seal. He bonds with his uncle Oscar, who is revealed as Buster's presumptive biological father. George Michael begins dating a deeply religious girl, Ann Veal; his father does not like her, and tries to disrupt their relationship. Michael fails to break them up, but George Michael sees a chance for his crush on Maeby to bear fruit, and the pair kiss while the living room of the model home collapses under them.
Maeby becomes a film studio executive covertly, and Tobias repeatedly paints himself blue in a futile attempt to join the Blue Man Group. Throughout the season, various blue paint marks can be seen around the family's house and on the back of Tobias's neck when not in full makeup. After being kicked out by Lindsay, Tobias dresses as "Mrs. Featherbottom" to be around Maeby, an explicitly narrated reference to Mrs. Doubtfire. Kitty returns to steal a sample of George Sr.'s semen to make her own Bluth baby. George Sr., in revenge for twin brother Oscar's affair with his wife, exchanges appearances with an unconscious Oscar, who is mistakenly sent to prison in the place of George Sr., who flees again.

Now I have to say out of all three seasons of "Arrested Development" the second season had to have been my favorite one due to its just downright hilarity and smart writing. But there were other funny moments. Allow me to list and show them to you.
Tobias decides to join the Blue Man Group.
Tobias also dresses as a British nanny to stay close to his wife and daughter and tries to put a banger, oh I mean a sausage, in Michaels mouth.
George Michael videotapes himself doing the lightsaber fight from "Empire Strikes Back" and thus proving he has no chance of getting laid by his cousin Maeby, his girlfriend Ann, or any other girl for that matter.
Looks like you'll have to wait until marriage George Michael.
Gob and Lindsay battle off to who has the worse and funnier chicken impression the in chicken off!
Could Oscar be Buster's real father?
Plus Buster has his hand bitten off by a seal. Then Lucille's maid Lupe then comforts Buster and then is fired. Buster then finds in Lucille's robot maid and has to jerk him off.
Or freakishly mutated little, human killing robots with a hook arm!
But that's getting off subject right there.
Also George Michael becomes the real life Charlie Brown when Ann dumps him and walks rght oast a dog on his dog house.
I'm pretty sure that's happened to all of guys after we break up with or girlfriends or when they break up with us. Ain't happened for me since my one and only relationship was a long distance one but that's once again getting off subject.
Fonzie, oh I mean Barry jumps the shark.
And we're introduced the best, most racist puppet ever! FRANKLIN BLUTH!
And he ground breaking album "Franklin Comes Alive"
But there were other things like I said the very funny, sharp, and smart writing on the show. But there was a little bit of a downside. Fox for some dumb ass reason had cut the order of episodes from 22 to 18. The show made that clear in the episode "Sword of Destiny" when the order of housing contracts from 22 to 18. A big "fuck you" to the excutives at Fox. But overall this was the best season of the show. Won many award as well, won Jason Bateman the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy, and various writing and directing awards. The latter of them Emmy and Writer's Guild Awards.
