Arrested Developement is a family affair, but certain members of the family are held in higher esteem than others by the show's rabid fans. David Cross' Tobias Fünke, wife to Lindsay and father to Maeby, is one of those characters. In addition to a very physical performance from Cross—no one looks quite so bright and daft behind geeky glasses—the character is beloved for his particular way of speaking. The words he uses, really.
