Recap Arrested Development: Season 1, Episode 6 - Visiting Ours

Michael Bluth is visiting his father in prison, anxious to get to the bottom of some suspicious bookkeeping. George Sr. is also anxious, but about the quality of the prison softball team. Frustrated by his father, Michael returns to the office and comes across George Sr.'s loyal assistant Kitty, who he suspects might have the information he needs. Just then, Lucille calls Michael with an emergency. Their club membership has been downgraded to "pool members only." Horrified by pool food, Lucille orders her son to rectify the situation. Meanwhile, Gob is noisily moving a desk into an office so he can write a strongly-worded letter to the prison warden, who decried the legitimacy of Gob's "escape" from his walls. Noticing Kitty's obvious attraction to Gob, Michael sets about the business of manipulation.

Meanwhile, Lindsay and Tobias, who are having a tough time in their marriage, prepare for their first session with a therapist. Maeby and George Michael decide to follow them, but George Michael is reluctant to drive because he doesn't want to get in any trouble, which could hamper his stated goal of visiting George Sr. In reality, George Michael is terrified of prison since he watched HBO's prison drama Oz after mistaking it for The Wizard of Oz. Michael arrives home, elated by the fact that Gob's seduction of Kitty will get him the information he needs and prevent him from having to visit the prison anymore. At least until George Michael tells him he wants to visit Pop Pop (George Sr.). Gob begins placing his spell over Kitty while Lindsay and Tobias begin examining their marriage for the first time. And Michael heads back to prison for the first time since vowing never to return.

During this visit, it is revealed that Lucille has yet to visit her husband since his sentencing. And it is also revealed that "daddy horny, Michael". Michael then pays his mother a visit to persuade her to make a conjugal visit to the prison. Lucille asks her son if he really wants this. Wants it bad enough to get her, say, a golf membership? Lindsay and Tobias are getting to the heart of their relationship with a role-reversal game. Which Tobias dives headlong into. But when Lindsay balks at it, the therapist jumps into the role of reverse Tobias. After passionately acting out their reverse roles, Tobias and the male therapist are about to make out until Lindsay brings the scene to an end. Michael arrives home, happy to have a brother he can share the news of his day with. Except Gob is violently repulsed by the thought of his parents sharing a conjugal trailer. But Gob has some good news. He "(bleep)ed Kitty." Horrified, Michael asks if he got the information about the international accounts, which he didn't. So Michael decides to hold out on Gob's office supplies until the job is done.

Michael drops by the prison again, this time with his mother and the news that "I took it upon myself to bring her." A surprised and grateful George Sr. opens the trailer door, only to be shocked to see his wife. You see, he has Kitty waiting for him in the other trailer. George Sr. asks his son for his help, and Michael wonders aloud if the help is "international accounts information" worthy. Coming to the rescue, Michael calls Gob to ask him to come to the prison, but learns he is already at the prison to deliver his strongly-worded letter to the warden. Gob tries to stall Kitty, but then decides he has to do the right thing. So he kicks out the bathroom window and sneaks out of the trailer. But on the way back to his car, he runs into the warden, who has just read his strongly-worded letter. And so Gob is detained against the window of the trailer in which his parents are being intimate.
