Modern Family "Baby On Board" 5/23/12 spoilers

I had a suspicion that eventually Gloria would be pregnant, but I was still surprised when it happened.

Luke is quickly becoming one of the funniest parts of this show.

I guess we now have some fodder for next season's story-lines.

Mixed bag for me, as is often the case. Anything involving the kids is usually gold, and that was true with this episode, too. Some of Sarah Hyland's expressions in this one as she reacted to things were just perfect. All the Alex stuff was great. I even enjoyed Manny, who I think has edged too much into caricature lately. They dialed that back this week.

But I thought the whole "Mitch, Cam and Gloria walk into a Spanish soap opera" was silly, and not funny. Unfortunately that was a large part of the ep.

Loved Phil teaching Alex to dance: "Your arms are down. That says, 'I'm white and I'm sorry.'"

Dylan was saying he and Haley were moving in together because he couldn't stand the thought of her leaving for college.

Luke intercepted the college acceptance letter. He was telling Dylan not to worry about Haley and college, that he had the letter and she wouldn't know she got in. Luke wanted Haley to stay home too.

Dylan took the letter to give to Haley.

Luke should have to spend the next season in federal prison for stealing mail.

The whole latino soap opera thing in the hospital was funny. But if they're going to make light of the adoption process, they shouldn't have taken the baby away from them, that was a bummer.

I am probably going to go off the PC scale on this one, but I am not usually a fan of watching TV shows with gay couples. But this show seems to do it just right.

I've been ambivalent about this show for a while now. It used to be one of my favorites (S1), but since then I feel like most of the characters have lapsed into caricatures. I did enjoy the scene where Phil was trying to teach Alex how to dance though.

Favorite line of the ep, courtest of Dylan: "I know that you're concerned, but I'm designing t-shirts now, and they're going to be huge... also medium and small."

Yeah, I'll agree that it's been a bad couple months. Both "The Middle" and "Suburgatory" now eclipse it, IMO.

Not looking forward to Gloria's pregnancy. Was she not taking birth control? Did Jay not get a vasectomy at some point (would have been prudent when marrying a much younger woman, no?)? Suspension of disbelief went out the window here, but beyond that I just don't think it's necessary. It reeks of desperation on the part of the writers. Sadly, I knew what was coming when Jay said he was "getting too old for this"; it couldn't have been more transparent.

Why would she have to take birth control? Why should Jay have gotten a vasectomy?

Well, this was clearly an unplanned pregnancy, but the implication that they were doing nothing to prevent it is wholly unrealistic. It's been raised in passing that Gloria wants another child, but you'd think they'd utilize some form of contraception or talk about it beforehand. To not do so, especially given her age, seems irresponsible and not in keeping with the show.

Or maybe I'm reading too much into it and it'll get addressed next season. But it just seems odd.

I was thinking of that too. Didn't they have a discussion about that when they were talking about Claire being a surrogate for them in that episode earlier in the season?

I wonder if this will be a May sweeps baby or a November sweeps baby.

This episode shows you why I'm starting to hate social networking. Because as soon the show began I checked into it on getglue. The first thing I see in conversation thread is the post Gloria is pregnant.

I was hoping this was somehow going to be a prank on Gloria.. (but they wouldn't've missed their kid's recital for that)

I am NOT looking forward to Gloria being pregnant stories next season.

I'd prefer this show to concentrate a lot more on the Dunphy family with the other two families just being occasional guest stars. The Dunphy kids are comedy gold.

I've actually grown to like Lilly 2.0.

Yes, they do it great!
And, it's not PC to be accepting of gay couples. It's right.

People don't always use good judgment when it comes to having sex. I know one couple who thought that the woman was menopausal so they stopped worrying about her getting pregnant. Their son is almost 8 now. Another couple should have named their daughter White Zin, because she wouldn't have been conceived if the woman hadn't gotten drunk on White Zinfandel and forgot that she didn't like her husband. There are lots of men who won't get vasectomies for various dumb reasons. And contraception fails sometimes, due to incorrect usage or bad luck. I don't think unplanned pregnancies are always due to irresponsibility. Sometimes they're just due to being human.

I didn't put together that Gloria was pregnant I really thought she was car sick because I get that way when other people drive.

I did however think once they got to the hospital they were not going to get the baby and Gloria was going to offer to be a surrogate for Cam and Mitch.

Why do you assume it was unplanned? Gloria was most likely wanted another baby and I think we have seen that. There was an episode where she took Lily for the day and acted like she really wanted her for her own. And she was ecstatic to be pregnant.

Of course not! Who gives their baby away just because their step-son wants another baby?

Because Jay doesn't want more kids. No way. I don't buy it either, and fully expect there to be a comment about how birth control (his vasectomy, her birth control) failed.
