The cast of "Arrested Development" headed to "Inside the Actors Studio," along with creator Mitch Hurwitz, to speak with the show's host, and fellow co-star,  James Lipton about their characters and the show everyone loves so much.

They were all there, save for Michael Cera, David Cross and Tony Hale. There was a lot of love for each other and Lipton, who played prison warden Stefan Gentles in the episode,

Lots of fun little factoids were shared on the episode, including:

  • Mitch was a writer on "Golden Girls"
  • Will Arnett got the call to audition for GOB right after he decided to quit doing pilots
  • Maeby (Alia Shawkat) is a combination of Mitch's daughter's names: May and Phoebe
  • Portia de Rossi's least favorite word is "panties," Jason Bateman's is "fleshy."
  • Lipton and Liza Minnelli were among the first people Mitch knew he wanted on the show

There were also some notable quotes from the cast:

  • Portia on finding her stage name in movie credits: "They were scrolling and de Rossi caught my eye and I thought, 'Yeah, that'll do.'"
  • Will on GOB: "GOB is officially a magician. He's not a particularly successful one, monetarily, but he'd argue he's at the top of his game."
  • GOB on his failures as a magician: "It's usually because other people don't live up to their side of the bargain. Because Michael has failed me."
  • Jessica Walter on playing villains: "I think I'm lucky to get these mean, vicious, horrible people to play, but I don't think I'm like them."
  • Portia on Lindsay: "She actually thinks she's a genuinely good person and a good wife."
  • Jason on the Bluths: "Mitch said early on, 'Our job as writers is to make these characters as despicable as possible, your job as actors is to make them as likable as possible.'"
