This one is kinda subtle and maybe hard to catch if you’re not familiar with the show. There’s a long-running (and frankly beaten to death long before this point) joke that Tobias is a closeted gay man who says incredibly unfortunate things. After Ed Helms’ character is led to believe that Tobias is gay, he assumes that Lindsay must be a trans woman.
Narrator: So, Lindsay and Tobias took another shot at being husband and wife, and although they wouldn’t have money until after the perjury, they set about buying a home.
James (Ed Helms): Are you ready to make a move?
Tobias: As you can see, I’m ready for a lot that’s new. *points to vanity plate stating “Anus Tart” or “A Nu Start”*
James: Oh! Good Heavens! Right! Well this is a great area. There’s some wonderful surgi-centers nearby.
