The Best Episode Ever.
28 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is nothing about this episode that wasn't hilarious.

Summary: Mitchell answers the door one day to find his mom standing there. She mentions an "incident" which turns out to be her getting drunk at Jay & Gloria's wedding and ruining the whole thing. She uses Mitchell to help apologize.

This is the first episode of Modern Family I ever saw. And I still think it's the funniest ever. It's a great introduction to Dylan, and this is one episode where I actually could put up with Haley. The way this episode plays out is the best, especially the song at the end (if you've seen this, you know what I'm talking about). If you like this show but haven't seen "The Incident", then go onto ABC.com, and GO SEE THIS EPISODE RIGHT NOW! You will love it. That's a guarantee. 10/10
