In the wake of actor Jessica Walters’ death on Wednesday night, Maren Morris was among the celebrities to share remembrances of her talent and legacy on social media.
Maren shared a favorite memory from beloved TV comedy Arrested Development, in which Walters played the quirky, vodka-soaked family matriarch, Lucille Bluth. While there are plenty of quips and one-liners to choose from the show’s five seasons, Maren picked one that she described as “one of the funniest lines still ever delivered.”
“Michael: Get rid of the Seaward,” Maren continued. “Lucille: I’ll leave when I’m good and ready.”
Maren’s penchant for sitcoms like Arrested Development is well-documented: In 2018, she and her husband, fellow singer Ryan Hurd, recreated Jim and Pam’s memorable wedding scene from The Office during a trip to Niagara Falls.
Meanwhile, in music news, it’s been a busy week for Maren: She’s featured as a background vocalist on Taylor Swift’s new version of “You All Over Me,” which drops on Friday.
She and Ryan also celebrated their son Hayes’ first birthday this week, sharing a series of pictures of his Peter Rabbit-themed party on her Instagram stories.
RIP Jessica Walter. One of the funniest lines still ever delivered is:
Michael: Get rid of the Seaward.
Lucille: I’ll leave when I’m good and ready.
