original airdate-December 21,2003 rating--6.42 million
music:Theme song--"Taking Chances" by Celine Dion
Goofs--While Buster and Lucille Two are on a date on Lucille Two's balcony, Buster sees his mother on her own balcony, presumably across a courtyard or air shaft. Since the Lucilles' apartments have already been shown to be across the hall from each other, this would be physically impossible.
Bluth Company status: George Sr. has Lucille smuggle gold bars into prison so that he doesn't get strangled in the shower or stabbed... in a manner of speaking.
Milestones: "My Mother, the Car" marks the first introduction of George Michael's new favorite movie, "Les Cousins Dangereux." Yet another one of Buster's many useless skills is revealed as we find out he was a member of an archaeological dig where he found a massive rock. Lucille does her best to make her children love her by guilting them with the line, "I've been a horrible mother."
