No wonder it’s so useful at capturing the perspective of America’s politicians . “I don’t care for Gob.” Lucille insists that she loves all her children equally. She also makes it very clear that she does not appreciate Gob. The line comes in a cutaway, but Walter conveys the idea that Lucille may have just said it out of the blue, while … [Read more...] about It’s an Appreciation of Jessica Walter as Lucille Bluth, What Could It Contain, 13 Best Moments?
