Bring on the juice. After various stills, a clip, and much hoopla, the season 4 preview for "Arrested Development" is out, and indeed, it is not an illusion.

The minute-and-a-half clip is rife with some classic Arrested Development themes we love. Here is a breakdown of the preview and the past "AD" moments we remembered:

10 seconds in: "Mother of God." Every damn time: The Cornballer returns.

20 seconds in: Les Cousins Dangereux: "There is kind of a girl here. Didn't say it was your cousin." Our favorite kind-of-incestuous couple. (Definitely beats "Game of Thrones" couple Jaime and Cersei.)

38 seconds in: Tobias tells Linsdsay she needs to take acting classes. Maybe his Blue Man Group stint took off.

40 seconds in: Gob's incomptence. 1. Is he drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade? 2. We see birds, so we assume they have to do with Gob.

1 minute and 6 seconds in: "It's the final countdown."

1 minute and 14 seconds in:
Buster didn't really say anything comprehensible. Which is fine. Maybe they skipped nap time.

1 minute and 18 seconds in: Stair car puns. Need we say more?

1 minute 30 seconds: Uh oh. Buster found the juice.

We can't wait for the new season to begin. Can you? What was your favorite moment from the clip? From the show? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
