    Yes, they could remove her from the show and I wouldn't care.

    Great start to the season though.

    Oh my gosh no. She is the best one on the show by a mile.

    Even as far back as when they first adopted her as a baby: "we've named her Lilly" "won't that be hard for her to pronounce?" :D

    Thanks, man! :D:D

    But has anyone mentioned Phil and Gloria at the coffeehouse? Their "miming" was so horrible, and they kept going "bigger" when the director wanted them to be invisible...

    Seems unlikely since they were referencing the Supreme Court ruling that occurred on June 26th and the last episode of last season aired May 22nd.

    Perhaps I am alone around here on this one, but when the "factor in the Asian" line was made right before the opening credits, it struck my wife and I as a blatant racist comment. We looked at each other and both said "wow!" Sure, it is playing off a "good" stereotype, but does that excuse it? What if it was a black child and Mitchell said he forgot to factor in the black?

    I'm not condemning the show, nor do I think I need to calm down (but thanks for that suggestion JYoung). Honestly, I was just curious to see if it jumped out at anyone else while watching. I guess not. Carry on.

    "Factor in the black" would have been just as funny. It's a comedy. Some people are way too sensitive.

    If it would have been odd for them to say such things it may have, but those little quips are the norm here.

    You must love Full House reruns.

    You wasted a post for that? More people dislike her than think she's the best part of the show.

    Technically, I suppose it could be construed that way. Except those sort of comments, in the context of a show happens all the time, not just in this show but others. How many gay jokes have their been ALL over TV? Or Jewish jokes, or Italian and yes, African-American jokes as well. I'm sure uber sensitive folks will see it as racist, but I think most people have the ability to laugh at themselves, no?

    "You got it dude."

    Count me in as a Lily fan. I think they use her perfectly in this show. She throws out a quick barb and returns to the background.

    I normally hate kids on shows, but that is because they try to put them in the front and make them the starts.

    It is also not uncommon for Modern Family to make - gay jokes, jokes about Hayley and Luke's not so brightness, Alex's brain, Gloria's Columbian background and other stuff. It is par for the course.

    It was a bit from Full House.

    She doesn't bug me, but I think she's far from the best thing in the show.

    It's back. I laughed several times. Phil Dumphey is probably my favorite character on TV right now.

    :up::up::up:

    In the pilot I didn't like Phil at all, but now he's my favorite. He's so sure of himself even though he's so wrong so often. That's what makes him funny.
