True dat. We just didn't know how much until episode 14.

Waited until nearly the very end for the Buster episode, and it didn't disappoint for deeply disturbing Buster antics. Once the family broke up and Lucille was sent to the hoosegow, of course Buster would have the hardest time adjusting without his mother.

His initial efforts to "replace" her were already out there, but Buster then gets worse and worse. Clinging back to Lucille 2 and then to Army, with his new giant robot hand he can't control. I liked the gag of Buster initially being great at controlling Army's drones (cameo by Zach Woods from The Office too). And we found out just how close Buster was to various key events, like the explosion at the Opies, and the KOing of Herbert Love at Cinco. Gabrielle Beauvais as Ophelia Love was great casting.

So at this point, who's in Michael's movie from the family? Himself, Buster, Maeby? Is that it? He tore up George Sr., Lucille, and Gob. Did he get Lindsay and Tobias? So much to keep track of.

The Q-Test was brilliant.

As was Buster punching the picture with the wrong hand and then slapping his forehead.

The final tally of who's in the movie needs to go in the thread for wrapping this whole thing up. Do we have one yet?

I wonder if Buster's tired of the jokes around his giant hand?

Wow, Buster as the drone pilot was some incredibly dark stuff. It seems he also got George Michael laid in Madrid.

Buster's time spent abandoned was also pretty sad and tragicomic. Of course, it was only two days.

Real glad Dr. Wordsmith got a verbal mix-up in, I was peeved he didn't have one (that I noticed?) in episode 5.

I don't know how I remember this, but there was a deleted bit of the s3 finale where after Buster was knocked off the boat into the water, he and the seal, each missing an arm, actually helped each other swim back to shore. I wish they'd included that.

Make that two from the Office: David Wallace was in the very next scene as one of the Army generals at the yogurt shop.
