Storyline

Gloria is less than pleased with Jay's reaction to the arrival of Javier, Manny's infamously unreliable dad. Meanwhile, Phil is suffering from kidney stones and his dramatics leave Claire no other choice but to call for the hot firemen to rush him to the hospital, and Mitchell and Cameron have a harder time than Lily as they attempt to sleep train her.

The One Where They're Up All Night...
14 September 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny. It's one of my favorite episodes from this season. However, not from the entire series. But there's so many awesome episodes, how could you ever pick a favorite?

In this episode, Manny's Father shows up with extravagant gifts, and tries to compete with Jay for his affections. This in turn makes them stay up all night, in order to impress Manny. Meanwhile, Mitch, and Cam argue about what to do when Lily cries at night. Leave her there to cry herself back to sleep, or go in, and coddle her. And Claire ends up trying to impress firefighters who respond to a 911 call about Phil having a kidney stone. Poor Phil.

Best part of the episode: Everything.

Overall, I give this episode an 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
