    Still one of the funniest shows on TV. Laughed harder for more scenes than probably every other new sitcom put together.

    My favorite:
    Jay & Manny standing in front of the courthouse, gay couples lined up to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling allowing gay marriage in CA. Jay & Manny are there to get Manny's birth certificate so he can go to Columbia. But of course, the dozens of gay couples standing around don't know that.

    Manny: "I think I'm too young"
    Jay: "I already paid for you and your mother said it was ok"

    the first episode was much better than the second, but loved both.

    when they got to the courthouse and i saw the line out the door, i saw that whole schtick coming, it was just a matter of what they were going to say that would have been taken as a double entendre. But that line definitely was great.

    also loved the baby barfing any time gay marriage came up and after the 3rd time Jay saying, "ok, that can't be a coincidence."

    Also, the way family members kept saying "gay wedding events" instead of just wedding events. Over and over.

    "Gay wedding bells"
    "Just wedding bells"

    and there were a couple more.

    I agree with the first part of this sentence. Was the first episode shot last season and held over, I wonder? Everyone looked different in the second one.

    The kids, as always, are gold. I'd watch a show just about the Dunphy kids. Loved all of that in the first episode, especially Phil's manipulation of Alex and Haley, and their reactions to it.

    I thought the second episode was pretty weak, and I really had to resist the urge to fast-forward through a lot of it. I really didn't think any of the subplots worked, and everything that happened was telegraphed long in advance.

    Jay (at the courthouse): "Look at that line. Probably everybody gettin' their gay marriage license."
    Manny: "I think it's just called a marriage license."


    Was I the only one that thought the card Manny left for Gloria was the copy of his birth certificate he left accidentally?

    Cam and Mitch's proposal setups...and then the moment it actually happened..so sweet :eek:

    Jay: Lily, no one ever leaves home and never comes back...
    Lily: I did! :eek:

    Phil telling the other mom to move her daughter's camp..
    No way! We've been working the whiteboard and we carved out 3 kid-free days! :D

    Cam trying to teach the AP History class...EPIC FAIL! Poor guy...but then he found his true calling!
    "Just call you an old denim vest because I will be-dazzling you!"
    "I always get a whistle when I wear shorts!"

    We thought both episodes were great... especially the kid-free days; not that we took notes or anything like that. :)

    And yeah -- as soon as they showed the line, I had a good idea what was coming up.

    Nolan Gould presented at the Creative Arts Emmys and I saw how different he looked and sounded. He's definitely changed the most.

    Phil in cut-offs! :eek:

    About time they added Fulgencio to the opening credits! :up::up: He's definitely his father's son...throwing up whenever gay marriage is mentioned :p;)

    Gloria: How does it work with two men?
    Cam: I'm not comfortable discussing that...
    Gloria: I know THAT, I rented the wrong movie once...did you ever see "Glen, Gary, Glen, and Ross? :D:p

    "Daddy's office....YOU sound like a little girl!"

    Made me LOL.

    Glad this season started off on a strong foot. I thought the show had lost a bit as last season ended.

    That was one of my favorite lines.

    I love Cam as President Washingon on the football field.

    Jay telling Gloria how he really meant to propose.

    Lily's lines these episodes were hilarious.

    And I think she did a better job of acting than last year.

    at first i was getting annoyed that he kept the costume on, but the line at the end, when he starts quoting "the only thing we have to fear" and one of the kids goes, "wrong president!" made it worth it.

    What made that even funnier is we all were thinking it (weren't you?) when the kid said it.

    And the fact that they were pushing him on the tackling dummies in a Washington crossing the Delaware pose.

    Is Fulgencio going to go the Lily route and leap with his age? Because in the credits he already looks like a toddler.

    when Lilly answered the phone and said "Daddy's office"

    I thought "oh, how cute"

    then she came back with "YOU sound like a little girl"

    LOL
    I was dying laughing


    "Wow, Look at your eyes"
    "I can't"

    ha ha ha

    They've still got it. So many good lines. My favorite has to be the ones with Lilly answering the phone in Daddy's office.
