Last night on Modern Family, Shelly Long guest starred as Claire and Mitchell's mother, Dede. Jay's ex-wife made her first trip to see the family after the incident at the wedding.
Meanwhile, Haley was busy trying to convince her parents to let her go to an overnight concert with Dylan, while Manny had his first slumber party.
Find out how all three of these stories came together in our recap of "The Incident."
Now for some of our favorite Modern Family quotes from the episode:
Claire [on her mother]: You know how growing up we all have that voice inside our head that tells us we're not good enough? Well, mine was outside my head driving me to school | permalink
Jay: What's up!
Mitchell: Uh, well you know, uh, moms in town.
Jay: Your mom?
Mitchell: No, no your mom. She's back from the grave. Yes, yes my mom, dad.
Jay: My mom would be less scary | permalink
Gloria: I'm taking a shower, would you like to join me?
Jay: Honey, you know there's a gun in the footlocker in the garage, if I ever say no, I want you to use it on me | permalink
Claire: My mom started drinking these cocktails called "horny Colombians" with some of Gloria's uncles, whom apparently the drink was named after
Phil: Oh come, they were funny
