Michael: What do you think of when you hear the name, "Sudden Valley"?
George Michael: Salad dressing, I think. But for some reason I don't want to eat it.From "Switch Hitter"
Sudden Valley was the name of the in-progress subdivision being built by the Bluth Company.
Building halted when George Bluth was incarcerated, so only one Model Home was built. The company, led by Michael tried to complete building the neighborhood but funding was often an issue. At one point in time, the company tried to relaunch the development by building a second model home, which was a sham and fell apart in front of the press. ("The One Where They Build a House")
The name "Sudden Valley" was never met with pleasant reactions. George Michael once described it as sounding like a salad dressing. The name was somewhat of a harbinger, as the model home did begin to sink into the ground due to a shoddy foundation.
The neighborhood also had a mole problem that became especially a problem when Michael tried to trick a group of Japanese investors. ("Mr. F")
