Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: It's Valentine's Day. I thought we were going salsa dancing, not to watch a comedian.
Jay Pritchett: You're gonna love him. Trust me. The guy's hilarious.
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: Okay, tell me one of his jokes.
Jay Pritchett: He doesn't do jokes.
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: Does he have a mallet?
Jay Pritchett: No.
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: So then how does he get hit in the head?
Jay Pritchett: He doesn't hit in the head. He... he makes observations. He tells the truth in a funny way. Come on, he's been on Johnny Carson a hundred times.
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: Who the hell is Johnny Carson?
Jay Pritchett: Oh, for God's sake.

Valentine's Day meets Modernity
14 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Will Modern Family end 30 Rock's winning streak at the Emmys this year? They'll rival each other, at any rate. Season 4 of 30 Rock had an all right Valentine's Day episode but I think I prefer this one. In it, the married couple Claire and Phil (I had to look those names up, I don't have them memorized yet) go to a hotel where they engage in role playing. There's also some stuff about Jay and Gloria seeing a comedian and the gay couple taking Manny to a restaurant.

All three of these stories provide some good humour- the comedian has some funny observations, though I'm not sure if Modern Family's writers came up with this or if it's the comedian's actual act. In the restaurant, Mitchell getting a chance to give the speech that he couldn't give in court is good, even if it felt a bit like typical sitcom humour.

But the role playing/escalator subplot was the definite highlight. Phil walks into serious land mines in coming up with a reason for why he's pretending to cheat on his wife. Claire getting naked under a coat- and then getting the coat stuck in the escalator- was good, funny because it's embarrassing and slightly sexy. Guys on the message board wanted her to lose the coat, and that's understandable. Alas, this isn't R-rated film, it's TV. It's TV worth watching, though.
