'Arrested Development' Is Gob's GIF to Mankind

All the reaction GIFs you need for Sunday's premiere

Everyone knows about the classic lines from the first three seasons of Arrested Development. But we figured it might be a good time for a refresher course as the world prepares for the long-awaited fourth season, premiering on Netflix Sunday, May 26.

Indeed, the world collectively blue itself when the season was announced. And now it's finally here! So come Sunday, get all settled in on the sofa and hunker down with your laptop for some uninterrupted streaming.

You've got your frozen bananas in the freezer, you've given your roommates uncomfortable embraces ("It's a hug, Michael"), and you've avoided life-threatening burns with your cornballer. All set? Just dive right in.

(What, no Netflix subscription? Oh, don't be jealous.)

Those of you watching, get set to reunite with the wild and crazy Bluth family: Michael Bluth, his twin sister, his older brother, his son, his niece, his younger brother, his brother-in-law, his father, and his mother. Remember everybody?

The hardest part of the weekend will be trying not get too bummed out when you run out of new episodes to watch.

Just so long as everyone remembers there's always money in the banana stand, everything should go smoothly. Watching along? Tweet us at @ACScreens to share your first reactions to the new episodes.
