    This is the first episode that I remember Gloria's boobs being covered up.

    I can totally understand why some people wouldn't think this episode was funny. My feelings towards Cam have changed in the last year. I used to think he was funny but now he's a way too over the top drama queen. I've grown to appreciate Mitchell more but frankly, they could write out the gay guys and Lily and it'd be a better show, in my opinion. I used to hate, hate, hate Phil with the fire of a thousand suns but I actually like him this year. Maybe I'm the only one who feels his character has been toned down and is being more intelligently written. He isn't just a one dimensional, totally unbelievable buffoon this season.

    In the olden days when you had sex you only had to worry about getting her pregnant. Nowadays...

    I agree, although Cam and Mitchell in small doses is funny, but definitely Cam has gone over the top. That's common in TV Land when a certain character starts to break out. Think Fonzie, or Sheldon and now Cam. As for Phil, the first few episodes of the series I didn't like him, but he's my favorite now. I don't know if they toned him down as much as developed the character more. He's not JUST the "fun" dad anymore, but he's a bit of the "henpecked" husband, and the "distracted" man, among other things.

    i agree for the most part with what you said here. Cam used to be funny, but now they're making him into a drama queen. One of my favorite lines of his was when he was getting ready to watch the Illinois football game and he painted his face, went up to Mitchell and asked "am I straight?" referring to the line on his face. That along with Mitchell's reaction was fantastic. Just haven't gotten the same laughs from his character recently... well, maybe the episode where he tried to pick up a woman in the bar.

    And Phil used to grate on me like nothing else, but this year i've been finding him amusing... go figure.

    Cam and Claire have gone so far downhill it is a bit sad. Claire was never one of my favorite characters but I loved Cam.

    Cam is nothing more than a drama queen now and Claire is little more than a shrill shrew.

    A shot of penicillin and you were back on your feet in no time!

    But seriously, the risk of an STD was nothing compared to HIV.
