We collectively mourned the loss of  Jessica Walter, who died at age 80 in her New York City home on March 25. Although the award-winning actress' career spanned many years—from Broadway stints to a role in Clint Eastwood's Play Misty for Me in 1971—she is arguably best known as the eccentric Lucille Bluth in the cult favorite, Arrested Development. 

The comedy follows a son who is forced to take over his father's real estate business when the patriarch of the family is sent off to jail. This is a side of the O.C. we can't resist. 

The series is the perfect thing to marathon when you're looking for something fun and lighthearted, as Walter's character proves.  As the show's creator, Mitch Hurwitz, told Variety, she was "the best kind of comic actor."

After the difficult news of her passing, fans took to social media to uncover their favorite moments of the Bluth matriarch, and unsurprisingly, it's the levity everyone needed. Get ready for a good chuckle. If you're inspired to watch the episodes in full, be sure to schedule a Netflix binge in the near future. 

"It's one banana, Michael: what could it cost?"

Lucille has apparently never stepped foot in the produce aisle judging from this infamous line.

You had to figure you'd be in for a laugh when Lucille says, "This does not bode well" upon entering the restaurant. 

Making fun of Michael 

Nothing brings a brood together like picking on one of their own. 

"I can't spare the moisture." 

No sympathy or tears here! Sorry, Michael. 

"Go see a Star War." 

Lucille seems a little unfamiliar with the George Lucas intergalactic franchise. 

Thanks for the memories!
