Mitchell Pritchett: Hey, Dad. Uh, did you know that the accident was Gloria's fault?
Jay Pritchett: Yes. I mean, I wasn't there, but she's a horrible driver. If she hit ten cars, I wouldn't be surprised.
Mitchell Pritchett: If you knew that it was her fault, why did you get me involved?
Jay Pritchett: Because someone has to tell her she's in the wrong, and better you than me.
Mitchell Pritchett: That's great. Here I am thinking that my dad actually respects me as a lawyer, and really you're just throwing me to the wolves.

Mitchell Pritchett: Okay. Dad, it... it doesn't bother you in ...

Best episode yet!
20 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am currently watching Season 1 of Modern Family and I just saw this episode. I missed most of the episodes so far so I am watching them a little late. I have been loving the show, but it's only had a few laugh out loud moments. After this episode, I have regained my full confidence in this series and its characters.

I have to say, this was possibly the funniest thing I have ever seen. With Claire's friend going to the house, and with Jay and Cameron at the gym, I was laughing out loud for at least 5 full minutes. Terrific episode, of a terrific show. I will continue to watch this show, as it is #1 on my current favorite TV Show list.
