Modern Family S5E1/2 "Suddenly Last Summer", "First Days" 09/25/2013

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

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

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!

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!

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

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?

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.

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

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.

Ok, near the end of the 2nd ep, at Mitchell's office, Haley said, "What is that creaking sound?" and Mitchell's boss ran out of Mitchell's office and so did Haley...
Then nothing??
What was the deal with that?
I thought maybe Lily was going to crash through a ceiling tile or something?
I guess I didn't get it-can anyone explain?

The boss had his helicopter parked on the roof. And they already mentioned that it probably wasn't safe to do that.

It was the helicopter breaking the ceiling.. or at least making it creak.

There was a throwaway-ish line about the roof not being made for a helicopter landing on it.

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but it's a good article where one of the gay writers on the show talks about how that episode came to be. Has a "why now?" component.

Good article.

I liked this quote -

Quote:
It's not a political show, and we bent over backwards in the episode not to be political. We all said this would not be about making a statement; it was very much about keeping it between these two people and what it means for them.
Also, the writer talked about how they have Chris Lloyd and Steve Levitan - one gets one week and one gets the next week for producing. I didn't know that before. They have writers in two different rooms depending on, well, I guess, whose turn it is to produce. That examples a little about why some episodes seem a bit different from the others.

Quote:
There are different ways and styles of telling stories, and, ultimately, it comes down to the taste of the showrunners. Whether we're being led by [co-showrunner] Chris Lloyd or by [co-showrunner] Steve Levitan infuses the episode with a certain sensibility, and then as writers our job is to fulfill that vision. This was a Chris episode.

At the beginning of "First Days," Mitchell asks Lilly to get dressed and she responds that she has been dressed and ready for an hour. Mitchell then says "I forgot to factor in the Asian."



Seems more than a bit racist. For such a liberal show, this is pretty stupid.

I normally don't care for this show (the wife loves it, so I sometimes watch). It falls into that category of comedy where you have smart people who have to do incredibly stupid and out of character things to get into the situation that is then funny. Having said that, Lily is often the funniest character of all, mostly because she does not do stupid out of character stuff.

As opposed to say, Big Bang Theory, where the smart people do incredibly stupid things that are perfectly in character.
