Modern Family Recap: Series Premiere

by at . Comments

Last night, Modern Family made its debut on ABC, and it was one of our favorite new sitcoms of the season.  Ed O'Neill starred as Jay, the patriarch of this unique family.

Jay, who's married to Gloria, a much younger wife with a son, Manny, make up one third of this modern family.  Joining them is Jay's children, Claire and Mitchell, as well as their respective families.

Phil: I'm cool dad, that's my thang. I'm hip, I surf the web, I text. LOL: laugh out loud, OMG: oh my god, WTF: why the face | permalink
Claire: If Haley never wakes up on a beach in Florida half-naked, I've done my job | permalink
Jay [to Manny]: If you put on a puffy, white shirt and declare your love for a 16-year-old, you're gonna be swinging from a flagpole in your puffy, white underpants | permalink
