2x14 The Immaculate Election (18)

George Michael, pretending to be in Star Wars, in "The Immaculate Election"

George Michael taped over a home video of an anniversary party thrown by Saddam Hussein for George Bluth. The family watched the video as a whole and G.O.B. called it "the lamest thing ever put on tape." No one had seen Buster's version, set in Balboa Towers, which combined the musical Chicago and Star Wars. G.O.B. uses the tape to make George Michael's student council campaign video, and George Michael's fight is accidentally shown to the entire high school. He is then called "Star Dork" but regains the attention of Ann Veal, another "star dork". ("The Immaculate Election")
