ABC definitely played the last two Modern Family episodes out of order. Last night, the kids began their first day of school, just one week after Luke and Manny got into a fight.. at school. Owell, we'll blame the network, not this amazing show.
While last night's episode, "Run For Your Wife" was entertaining, it definitely lacked our favorite part of the Modern Family formula: the families interacting! Each family had their own distinct plotlines and the only interaction was Mitchell calling Claire for a little advice.
Don't worry, the episode still had more laughs than any other sitcom on television, it just couldn't compete with previous episode. Still, check out some of the great Modern Family quotes from the episode:
Manny: How's my hair?
Jay: Hold on, what are you wearing there? That looks like an old Christmas tree skirt
Manny: It's a traditional Colombian pioncho, I want my new classmates to know I'm proud of my heritage
Gloria: I think you look very handsome, lindo!
Jay: Oh really? Am I driving him to school or is he gonna ride his burro? | permalink
Claire: Phil, let it go, I'm faster than you
Phil: If only there was some way we could settle this once and for all, but how?
Claire: You seriously want to race me? I ran a half-marathon last year
Phil: Okay, I'm half scared
Claire: Okay, we do need to do this. I'll go change | permalink
Gloria: The poncho by itself is fine. The poncho plus the flute plus the stupid dance? My son will die a virgin | permalink
