    I didn't think this episode was their best effort, but still funny. I have to admit to laughing hysterically when Cam fell in the pool, especially the second time!!

    I really enjoyed this episode (as I do most of them) especially how the sisters actually came together for about 10 seconds!

    not bad, but with some exceptions, it hasn't been as funny lately as it was. I guess they set the bar pretty high as my expectations are always to bust a gut laughing.
    Manny hasn't been at his best lately. Maybe he needs some more expressos.

    I always like Phil's cheerleading comments.

    We thought the episode was great all around. Luke thinking he was moving stuff with his mind, Phil and Claire tumbling down the hill, Phil and Claire riding the tandem bike, Gloria saying that she tried to ride the bike but her knees kept hitting her boobs, etc.

    I laughed a good few times this ep, as usual...

    I loved Cam slamming into the sliding door--then immediately after, the screen door. Phil trying to get Claire to break down early so he could go to Vegas. Phil waiting to be boosted over the gate.

    Good times.

    I also noticed this ep that the family portrait has moved at the Dunphy house. It used to be in the foyer, now it's in the living room.

    I did like Haley and Alex having "a moment"-they remind me of my sister and me so I did tear up a little...:eek:

    You think I'm pretty? :eek:
    Shut up! :D

    I didn't laugh when Cam fell into the pool, but I cracked up when everyone was showing concern when Mitchell told the story. I really laughed when Cam smacked into the door - at that point I paused it and told my sister and my nephew about the time at a friend's house when someone walked right through a patio screen, not knowing it was there. Then I unpaused it and Cam went through the screen! Then ALL the Pritchett's started laughing! Another pause-to-laugh moment.

    For whatever reason, I completely lost it when MacGayver was going to rig the gate to open:

    Mitchell: Cam, please be careful.
    Cameron: Why, if I get electrocuted maybe my hat will blow right off!

    I'm cracking up, and Mitchell starts laughing and I lost it. My nephew got a bigger kick out of how hard I was laughing than he did from that joke.

    I didn't like this show very much at first, but it's grown on me. I only watched it to begin with because I loved Just Shoot Me. I think the people who make this show are doing the same thing they did there, creating a bunch of crazy, sometimes even over the top cliche characters, then making you feel like they're real people that you can relate to.

    What's with the little girl they're always carrying around though? It seems like she never laughs or reaches her hand out to engage anyone. She just kind of sits there and looks. Freaks me out a little. Also, it must be two kids, so they must both be that way.

    They are twins, and that's the point. They can always use the one that's calm, so she doesn't ruin the take. She's not old enough for them to give her lines or write something for her to do, so until she is, it's best for her not to draw any attention.

    Actually, oddly, one of the twins is a boy.

    No, they're both girls. Their names are Jaden Rose Hiller and Ella Rose Hiller.

    According to the Mod Fam trivia page:

    Cam and Mitchell's daughter, Lily, is played by a set of twins named Ella Hiller (a girl) and Jaden Hiller (a boy). They are not given an on-screen credit.


    I can't vouch for its accuracy.
