Fans are loving the Arrested Development frozen banana stand that hit London last week and Radio City Music Hall yesterday. The stand will be at Columbus Circle from noon to 7 p.m. today, and Terry Crews, who has a cameo on the show’s third season, will make an appearance from noon to 1 p.m. Bluth-o-philes can also find the stand in Times Square on Thursday.
Expect to wait, though: There were only 1,500 bananas available at yesterday’s stand, and the hours-long line stretched around the block.
The show is known for its one-liners, running gags and famous sayings like “There’s always money in the banana stand.” Fans on Twitter reacted with Bluth-y gusto and recounted some of their favorite Arrested Development moments in the stand’s honor. The best tweets:
HOLD UP- there’s a Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana stand in midtown? Then I will meet you down at the big yellow joint. #arresteddevelopment

I have a serious desire to set up a cornballer stand beside the banana stand outside Radio City, right now.

I’m not sure if I’m on the line for the actual banana stand or Annyong’s grandfather’s banana stand…
