'Arrested Development’ Beyond The Binge: Everything You May Have Missed In ‘Red Hairing’

Beyond the Binge reflects on episodes from a full season perspective. It is not intended to be spoiler-heavy, but there will be some spoilers throughout. Previously: Colony Collapse.

I think I’ve made it pretty clear that the George Sr. and Lindsay episodes are my least favorite of season four. And following up “Colony Collapse” is quite the tall order so “Red Hairing” was due to feel like a bit of a letdown.

That being said it lays the groudwork for some serious interweaving to come in other storylines and is a lot of fun to watch eyes open the second time around. This where I feel like Michael starts to become the co-star of each episode providing a nice cohesiveness. There are actually better lines and bits — “Not urine smell” has transitioned into regular personal usage — than hidden and buried moments in “Red Hairing” so this will be one of the more succinct installments. Let’s jump right in.

“God! Who keeps numbing these desert animals?” Why, Dr. Norman, of course.


Herbert Love’s video page has been updated since the last check in to include all his sexual misdeeds, including the “one-eared elephant reenactment,” “man and two women,” “bustiness,” and “consoling grope.”


Lindsay’s campaign banner for Lucille 2 is made on the other side of the “Welcome Home”/”You’re Killing Me, Buster” banner from S2’s “¡Amigos!”.


“Looks like we’ve got another high end hooker in here.” — Lucille foreshadowing Lindsay’s soon-to-be high end hooking.

“I am like you nothing.” Continuing the theme that Lindsay really is a Bluth at heart she repeats George Sr.’s sentiments that she’d give 20K for a glass of lemonade to kick off the episode and then screws up the wording of the phrase just like Lucille screws up her idiom, proving Lucille’s point.
