Modern Family: Pictures and Quotes from the Pilot

Modern Family premieres on ABC on September 23 and let us tell you, this show is fantastic.  We were lucky enough to have already seen the pilot and we can tell you we're already hooked.

In the pilot, we're introduced to the family which consists of Jay and his younger wife, his daughter Claire and her husband and kids, and his son Mitchell and his life partner Cameron and newly adopted baby.

What makes this show work so well is that each of the three families has its own unique dynamic and fantastic characters.  We can't wait to see where this show plans on going.

Here's just some of our favorite Modern Family quotes from the pilot.
