Disfun��



Arrested Development:"an abnormal state in which development has stopped prematurely."

Arrested Development, a s�rie de com�dia (negra) que ganhou 5 Emmys este ano, tem sido a coqueluche c� em casa na �ltima semana desde que chegou em DVD. A hist�ria de uma fam�lia exc�ntrica rica que passa a fam�lia disfuncional pobre tem um sentido de humor muito especial. Com excep��o de um dos filhos o resto n�o tem instinto nenhum de sobreviv�ncia nem sabe como se comportar sem um cart�o de cr�dito (al�m disso conta com a participa��o especial de Liza Minelli num papel hilariante de vi�va com vertigens que anda sempre aos tombos, que mais se pode pedir ?)

Algumas das melhores tiradas (e elas s�o tantas):

LUCILLE (a m�e): (sobre um protesto gay) Everything they do is so dramatic and flamboyant. It just makes me want to set myself on fire.

LINDSAY (a filha com pretens�es ecol�gicas): You know, we're not the only ones destroying trees. What about beavers? You call yourself an environmentalist, why don't you go club a few beavers?

LUCILLE : How much could a banana cost? Ten dollars?
MICHAEL (o filho com algum senso) : You've never been to a supermarket, have you?

MICHAEL : I'm moving to Phoenix. I got a job.
[Sil�ncio na sala]
MICHAEL : Something you apply for and they pay you to... Never mind, I don't want to ruin the surprise.

GOB (o outro filho): Where am I? Two-thirds of a hospital room?

MICHAEL: Why are you squeezing me with your body?
LUCILLE: It's a hug, Michael. I'm hugging you.

LINDSAY: I'm tired of trying to find happiness through lies and self-medicating. If you need me, I'll be at the bar.
MICHAEL: Lindsay, hospitals don't have bars.
LUCILLE: And they wonder why people don't like them.
