Marta was the girlfriend of G.O.B. and the initial love interest for Michael Bluth in Arrested Development.


Marta is an actress on a Spanish sopa opera. She has two sons and strong family values. She's attracted to those who share the same values as her, even if it means going against said values to be with them.




G.O.B. and Marta

Marta was initially going steady with G.O.B., but he was too self-obsessed with his magic act to care about her. When Marta was nominated for an award, G.O.B. used the publicity to announce a new magic trick he would perform the night of the awards show, leaving Marta all alone. Nevertheless, Michael helps Marta and G.O.B. get back together. Shortly afterwards, G.O.B.  suspects that Marta is cheating on him. After finding out it was Michael Marta truly loved, he graciously lets her go, knowing that his brother is a decent guy and deserves someone like Marta. G.O.B.'s decency is short-lived however, as he changes his mind shortly afterwards and gets into a fight with Michael. Marta sees the two men fighting and tells them she refuses to be with either of them.

Michael BluthEdit


Michael and Marta

Michael and Marta had an instant connection after attending the awards show together. Marta secretly had feelings for Michael, but her moral convictions kept her from acting on her feelings. Michael wants to be with Marta, but is told by his sister that he's too decent to go after his own brother's girlfriend. On Valentine's Day, Marta sees that Michael is all alone and feeling that her relationship with G.O.B. isn't going anywhere, decides to confess her love to Michael. The two then become a couple, but the relationship is brought to a grinding halt after Marta sees Michael and G.O.B.  fighting over her.

Buster BluthEdit

Buster fell in love with Marta after watching her show. He was going to surpirse her with a mariachi band, only to find out that she was seeing Michael. When G.O.B. and Michael fight over Marta, Buster hovers overhead, wanting to fight but too timid to get hit. When he confesses his love to Marta, she says she doesn't know who he is.
