    Very good episode.

    Luke: "Mom, someone's at the door"

    But I literally laughed out loud when Phil's suit split.

    Not many shows actually make me Laugh Out Loud, but this show consistently does.

    Phil: I've had it up to - higher than here - with you!

    Cam and Mitch with their matching outfits--
    Lily, who wore it better?
    Lily: I'm not doing this again-I just can't!

    Phil getting out of the car and knocking over the valet-I did a spit take - for real! His sense of physical comedy is brilliant!

    Lily is becoming one of my favorite characters on the show.

    Alex - "I don't know how to dress like a boy?"

    Lily - "Really?"

    That one got me...

    I think the difference with Lily this year is that it seems like she understand what she's saying, where last year I think she just said words that she was told to say.

    Yeah - she's doing a great job delivering her lines. Luke, on the other hand, seems too old now to pull of the funny stuff he used to do.

    Luke's lines were fine IMO.

    "I'll just hide where no one can find me"

    All around great.

    Loved the Haley and the three boys singing.

    The whole bit with wearing matching outfits was fun but better when they show up and Claire is wearing that jacket too.

    Loved Luke shooting Claire with the paint gun.

    Lilly is getting better with her one word lines like the "Really". She still has problems delivering whole lines though.

    Phil's suit was the very funny as was Manny talking creepily about his mom and Haley and Jay questioning him on it. "Keep it out of the family."

    This was one of the better episodes in a while.

    Loved the quote about Phil watching "The Walking Dead" with Luke. My wife and I have had similar conversations about me watching UFC with my daughter.

    That was great. Her eyes went up and down Alex quickly before she said the line.

    Phil - "Well the salesman said it was the style and he looked like a Mumford and Son, so I think he'd know."

    I don't know why, but the thing with Phil's suit was just not funny to me, because nobody would really put on a suit that tight and think it looked good. He looked completely ridiculous from the get go, and I can't believe Claire didn't make him change the second she saw him.

    I agree. I didn't find it all that funny - and the end when it all split - you saw that coming a mile away.

    While you could see the suit splitting joke a mile away, I still laughed. Loved Luke and the paintball gun. And Jay just describing Gloria and her being late, and the solution being telling her to be ready an hour earlier (or something like that). My wife and I just looked at each other and said "Mom" (my wife's mother...notorious for being late and everyone telling her to be their an hour early so she'll be on time). Lots of great lines in this one, which have been already covered here. Still a bit tired of Cam and Mitch, but Lilly is making up for it.

    I have a friend that is always late. I now plan not be on time so that we can both get there together. I think that's what makes this show so wonderful - it touches on things that happen in real families. I can just see the writers sitting around the table talking about the particular one in each of their families that is late and then writing it into the story.

    I wish Mitchell wouldn't have admitting shaking up the soda can. Leave some things a mystery, even though we all kind of knew that he did it.

    Multiple LOLs in this episode. Best of the season by far. Die, Pizza Man!
