Modern Family Review: Hit and Running for Office

at . Comments

What do you get when you try to run with other people's money? Tackled by four dudes, that's what. "Hit and Run" definitely depicted its fair share of fleeing the scene, no matter how predictable.

So what would you do if someone hit your car and then ran? Or jacked your money and then ran? I mean, if Mitchell can take down a perpetrator with just with a hoodie grab, and admire his skinny jeans while doing so, it's safe to say any of you could do that same.

Then again, he did have some major help in the form of his overweight hubby jumping on the guy's back. Poor Cam was having a rough day, he needed to kick some butt. First, he struck out trying to warn that guy at The Muppet Movie and then he scratched the roof of his mouth when the car got rear-ended. That can really hurt!

Jay may not have been able to picture Dirty Harry in that pink shirt, but I'll tell ya, Cam could be wearing a fuzzy pink bunny costume and still take a mofo down.

That goes for Claire, too, she's not a woman I'd want to mess with. I'm pretty surprised she didn't get her stop sign after last week's compelling argument and video. Even though Gloria says she'll probably lose the bid for town council, we have to remember what Phil said: Claire will not stop until she wins. Ever. I have faith in our girl.

I also have faith that with Sofia Vergara's rack beauty, could probably sell a dumb young guy any product. So that kid wanted to be wowed like he was after one drink in South Beach made him unconscious for two days? It's called a roofie, you moron. I'm so glad Jay barely had to break a sweat to win that deal.

It's the little moments on the show that make me laugh, from Luke literally freezing his money, to Manny swigging his milk from a brandy glass, to the fact that Haley's voicemail would obviously be full, those little details make this comedy so perfect.

Speaking of Haley, how and when did you all get your first fake ID? Hit the comments and don't forget to check out our favorite quotes from the episode!

Manny, sometimes you can be a little old fashioned. Remember the first time you saw the kids with the backpacks with wheels and you thought they were a little flashy?


Manny: I wanna be home-schooled.
Gloria: Really Manny? You want me to learn you English?
