I loved when Jay said "When I met you, you were eating cereal out of a bucket".

Is Claire Dunfey real? Are their really women like her in this world?

Because I am totally smitten.

Just buy the kid a new bunny.

Has Kevin Hart been on the show before? He's funny. Maybe they should adopt him.

He is Phil's friend who he spotted from the treehouse he built with Luke.

Were the guys in the car next to her hitting on Claire? Until she got all weird that is.

I thought the anxiety over taking Lily to China town was funny. I imagine it might really be confusing and exciting for a 3 year old with no experience in the world besides her own adoptive family to suddenly see people who look like her everywhere.

I also loved grown man Mitchell whining about the doll his father lost 25 years ago and then declaring "But I'm over it now". LOL! That's subtle funny!

Anybody notice that while they were on their way to Chinatown, Cameron had one of those conical Chinese/Vietnamese straw hats hanging on his back?

Is it her physical attributes, or her unconditional support/love for her husband that has you pining for her?

As a woman, I am curious.

Maybe it's her freaky crack-whore arms.

Actually... it just occurred to me that I haven't really noticed her arms like I used to last season. Maybe she's finally not anorexic anymore.

She's attractive, for sure. But it's her interactions with Phil and her family that really are more attractive. It helps that she's good looking, but she's a great wife that happens to be attractive.

my daughter has a bunny that cannot be replaced, we have not been able to find a duplicate to put away in the event that this one gets lost.


She is 12 now and could live without it, but it would take some adjustment. The bunny never leaves the house, so it that it does not get lost.

I'm at a loss as to the last scene... Manny was on the phone, ordering flowers for the girl behind the hotel desk because he was obviously smitten.

His snapping of fingers at Jayand demanding Jay's credit card seemed at bit out of left field. Jay's expression as the show cut away was surprise and anger.

My wife and I looked at each other and we each said, "That kid is such a fu**ing ass."

I don't know that I'd go that far, but I'm not enjoying him as much as I used to. They've taken it a bit too far.

"I'm not going to leave your mom."

"Might not be your call."


I loled so hard. Phil and Luke are my 2 favorites.

Luke's role has expanded somewhat this season. Not really on this episode I guess but he's become one of my favorites

Oh jeez...come on....he's hilarious. It was so over-the-top it was a scream. Certainly you can't take that seriously...

I LOLed at that. It was a great touch, perfect for his character.

You can't just "buy a new bunny!" Hasn't anyone read the Knuffle Bunny trilogy?

So my kids and I were having a conversation about Modern Family the other day. They sometime watch with me, but haven't in a while.

The Phil/Claire story line was something I went through last year when I bought my 2 seat convertible. (While I did buy it without my wife, I did drive her to the dealership the night before I got it and showed her the car I was going to get)

Anyway, I was talking about the show and Claire's reactions and my son told me Claire has to act that way - it's part of the script. She's not real.

I was crushed.



I really hope he's wrong. I hope there are women like Claire out there somewhere.

I'm surprised by all the Claire love. With the exception of this episode I have found her to be nothing more than a shrill harpy this season. Cam has been poorly written this year too.

I'm reading this thread and honestly cannot believe all the Claire love. It's almost as if I'm reading first time viewer comments. If this had been the first time I'd seen the show, I could understand and agree but holy hell that woman is a disaster of a mess on pretty much every other episode. She's bitchy and bossy and oh so neurotic. Add in the fact that I want to hand her a sammich every time I see her and yeah... baffled.

I really like Claire. She and Phil remind me of my wife and me. They are just extreme caricatures, but same basic relationship.

It's funny, because Claire is very much like my wife. I love my wife to death, but the Claire character is my least favorite on the show.

I wonder if that was really Ty Burrell doing back handsprings at the end. I know the Phil character was a college cheerleader, but I'd be interested to know if Ty can actually do that.

No way in Hades that was the actual actors....if it had been, you can bet there would have been closeups....

I've watched every episode of the show.

She'd still be a huge improvement. Bitchy and bossy, but always supportive.
