Arrested Development Yearbook: Meet Lindsay Bluth Funke (AKA Nellie Sitwell)

Yes, we made it. We’re now less than a week away from watching the entire fourth season of Arrested Development. While we’re super excited to memorize a whole new set of lines, we’re also taking a moment to look back at all our favorite moments from the first three seasons. Not only to remind ourselves about all the inside jokes, but also to get reacquainted with our favorite family members. Even if they’re not exactly real Bluths. Yeah, that’s right I’m talking about Nellie Sitwell, also known as Lindsay Bluth Funke (Porta de Rossi). Not only is she a horrible wife and mother, but she’s also a pretty terrible person. Which is why we adore her so much!

Most likely to…be proud of being a shemale.

A Few Yearbook Notes To Lindsay From Her Friends and Loved Ones:

Michael Bluth wrote,  “ And this is not a Volvo…”

Lucille Bluth wrote,  “Oh really? Did ‘nothing’ cancel?”

George Michael Bluth wrote, “You’re my aunt.”

Maeby Funke wrote,  ”55-55.”

Tobias Funke wrote,  ”You know, Lindsay, as a therapist, I have advised a number of couples to explore an open relationship where the couple remains emotionally committed, but free to explore extra-marital encounters…. No, it never does [work]. I mean, these people somehow delude themselves into thinking it might, but … But it might work for us.

And Here’s How We Wish We Could Sign Lindsay’s Yearbook:

Dear Lindsay, 

Even though you’ve always been bigger than your twin Michael (insert Lucille-style wink), we’ve always loved you for just being you. There’s something so refreshing about a woman who refuses to work or parent or do anything that other people feel obligated to do.  Your crush on high school student Steve Holt reminded us that age is nothing but a number and your hot ham water reminded us that soup is just a word that gets tossed around carelessly when there are so many better way to describe what’s in the pot.

Never change,
