Oh Tobias, where to begin with Tobias.  Tobias Fünke is the ridiculous husband of Lindsay Bluth and the father of Maeby.  Tobias was once a respectable man who was the chief resident of psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital.  But after losing his license, Tobias finally decides to become an actor during season one.  The highlights of his career include "frightened inmate number two" in a prison movie, being an understudy for the Blue Man Group, and selling out his family to star in a documentary.

It's often hinted that Tobias is homosexual and that Maeby was conceived as a test tube baby.  Tobias also suffers as a never-nude,  meaning he always wears jean shorts under his clothes... even int he shower.

He's a weird dude that we could go on for hours about.

Lindsay: You're gay?
Tobias: No. No ... Ha, I'm not gay. How many times must we have this conversation?

(Regarding Buster) Maybe it was the eleven months he spent in the womb. The doctor said there were claw marks on the walls of her uterus. But he was her 'miracle baby'. And I-I was just too burnt out on raising you guys to care. So... He turned out a little soft, you know...
