George Michael at the Milford School, in "Public Relations"

George Michael was never a student at the Milford School, but Michael Bluth was pushing to get him in. He was rejected due to the Bluth family's poor publicity, notably a recent fight between Lucille and Lindsay at a Klimpy's. Michael hired Jessie to clean up the family's image in the hopes of getting George Michael accepted, but he eventually told his father that he was not interested in attending, so Michael dropped his pursuit.

Lucille sends Annyong to the Milford school to teach him a lesson, but she later forgot what that lesson was. ("Afternoon Delight")
