It's probably a good thing that Mrs Featherbottom is finally 'unmasked' in this episode - while I could appreciate the joke, it was wearing thin and I have to confess I was tiring of Tobias' raised voice and mannerisms while 'in character'. There was at least one great gag surrounding the persona in this episode as the garishly British mini veers off the left side of the road. Seeing Michael's priceless engagement ring on Lindsay's toe is typically Bluth - although nothing is more Bluth than the return of the very funny but very despicable Franklin who elicits a different reaction from every member of the family.

Gob's reaction when asked to pop the trunk and roll down the windows when he tries to use Franklin on the gate guard at Balboa Towers is great but not as great as the bluff. The angle of Michael meeting Ann's parents is an interesting one and the writers come up with some pretty funny situations - the way Mrs Veal tries to seduce Michael is both funny and slightly tragic. The showdown at the Church is pretty entertaining and the completely inept police in the Arrested Development universe make a welcome return.
