Twenty-sevenish things the Arrested Development movie must have

Arrested DevelopmentNow that the Arrested Development movie is pretty much a done deal, fans are dreaming of what the big screen event should include. FilmSchoolRejects listed eight things the Arested Development movie must include, such as the stair car, Lucille 2, and the banana stand. Being the AD fan that I am (I've seen every episode at least 5 times if not more), I've decided to come up with my own list. A girl can dream, no?

Here is a list of things, people, lines, music, that I think should appear in the movie (including some from the FilmSchoolRejects list):
  • Alliance of Magicians: We need to see Gob fight once again to be fully accepted by the organization he started and appear on the cover of Poof magazine. I also expect the Gothic Castle to be featured and see Tony Wonder (Ben Stiller) at least pop up in a cameo.
  • Boyfights: If they don't show us footage of another Boyfights tape, they should at least show a poster or some tapes near a TV set.
  • Charlie Brown: I would be happy either with the music or the sad walk.
  • Chicken dance: Isn't it about time we see Michael's version of the dance?
  • Cutoffs and never nude: The issue of never nudes definitely must be addressed as it was a recurring issue on the series. It wouldn't hurt if Zach Braff shows up in the cutoffs too!
  • Dr. Fünke's 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution: This means also at least one mention of Teamocil and one awkward, yet hilarious, performance by the band.
  • Arrested DevelopmentGirls with Low Self-Esteem and Hot Cops: Do I need to explain why these must be included? How about a GwLSE video featuring the Hot Cops?!
  • Gobias Industries: It's time for Gob and Tobias to grow up a little and going back into business (or at least trying to and failing) may be in order.
  • Les cousins dangereux: If the Maeby/George-Michael romance is not part of the movie, it will be a tragedy! This was one of the main storylines throughout the series; therefore, a must for the movie.
  • Oscar being Buster's father: Until we see the result of a DNA test, I think this storyline cannot be put to rest.
  • Lucille 2 and Surely Fünke: Both characters brought good laughs and awkward moments. Surely could show up in a movie produced by Maeby.
  • Steve Holt!!!

Arrested DevelopmentOther items / places that must be seen:
  • Aztec Tomb
  • Cornballer
  • Stair car
  • Franklin (If you ask Gob, Franklin is not an "item" or a "thing".)
  • Model Home
  • Orange County Prison
  • Queen Mary
  • Rape horn
  • "The Man Inside Me" book

I also expect the following songs to be featured in the episode:
  • Afternoon Delight
  • Big Yellow Joint
  • Final Countdown
Since every episode of the series contained easter eggs pointing to other episodes, I'm pretty confident that most items on my list will pop up in the movie. Have anything else to add to my list? Comment below! Oh and NO TOUCHING!
