Template:Characters Mae "Maeby" Fünke is the daughter of Lindsay and Tobias Fünke. She has an alter ego named Surely Fünke, a wheelchair bound girl suffering from a disease called BS, which she uses to get money through donations. She cons her way into being a movie executive, and holds the job for half of Season Two, and up until the end of Season Three.
During Season One, her cousin, George Michael, develops a huge crush on her, that he can not act on. In Season Two, while George Michael begins dating Ann, Maeby begins to show feelings for him. The two kiss in the Season Two finale and then spend most of Season Three feeling awkward over it. She also begins to date Steve Holt, an interesting parallel to her relationship with George Michael, as Steve Holt is G.O.B.'s illegitimate son. In the series finale, we find that her mother Lindsay, was adopted by Lucille and George Bluth Sr., making Maeby neither Steve Holt nor George Michael's blood cousin.
Her name is a reference to the ambiguity of her relationship to George Michael. For much of the show, it is not clear whether the two are blood relatives, making her his cousin... maybe.
