"Her?" is a commonly said quote by Michael Bluth about his son's girlfriend Ann Veal. Because of her plainness, Michael constantly forgets who she is and when reminded asks, Her? because he is not supportive of his son's relationship with Ann.

On a couple of occasions, it is said about another woman other than Ann.


2x02 Her?

Michael asks "Her?" about Ann for the first time in "The One Where They Build a House"

Michael: George Michael, I’d love for you to come with me when I cut the ribbon at the new house.

George Michael: Oh, wow. Hey, can I bring Ann?

Michael: Who?

George Michael: Ann. You know, she’s... She’s the girl I’m kind of hanging out with.

Michael: I haven’t met Ann.

George Michael: Yes, you have.

Narrator: Michael had met Ann.

George Michael: You let her in. See, that’s ... That’s her right over there.

Michael: Oh, Ann. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. I know Ann. Hey, you! She’s got a little hard-boiled egg going there?

George Michael: Oh, it’s so cute. She sometimes takes a little pack of mayonnaise, and she’ll squirt it in her mouth all over, and then she’ll take an egg and kind of... Mmmm! She calls it a “mayonegg.” Are you okay?

Michael: I don’t feel so good.

George Michael: You know, I kind of want to buy her a diamond.

Michael: Her?

George Michael: Ann. I know I can’t afford it, but Aunt Lindsay was telling me about this diamond cream...

Michael: George Michael, I’m sure that Egg is a very nice person. I just don’t want you spending all your money...

George Michael: Ann.

Michael: ... getting her all glittered up for Easter, you know?

George Michael: She’s kind of my girlfriend.

Michael: Her?

George Michael: Do you not like her?

Michael: I don’t know her, you know? It’s like you spend all your time with her. It’s like you’re hogging her. Like you’re a little Ann hog, okay? Don’t be such an Ann hog.
