The neighbor from hell
5 March 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Sometimes, even in nice neighborhoods like the one where the Dunphys live, someone will not respect the established order. Take the case of Laura who drives a sport car at speeds suitable for the freeways, but not in residential areas. Claire is beside herself trying to put a stop to the reckless driver. Unknown to her, Phil is selling her house from which her husband hopes to get a healthy commission.

Meanwhile at Cam and Mitchell's they discover a stranger in their hot tub. How to deal with him? As it turns out, Barry, is living upstairs and what's more he is a master in Reiki massage, something both Cam and Mitch can fully appreciate. What they are not ready is for the shock they will get when Cam catches Barry in Lily's princess house in their garden.

At Jay and Gloria, there is another issue, learning to ride a bicycle. Manny gets a new bike. He wants to take it to school, but the learning wheels are still attached, something that will make him the butt of his peer's cruelty. Gloria also wants to learn, but she is hopeless. That is, until Luke suggests he can teach her with his own method.

A fun episode in this award winning series. Gail Mancuso directed the installment that was written by Ilana Wernick, who is associated with the production of this sitcom. The guests stars were Jami Gertz and James Marsden who are seen as Laura and Barry. There are special moments that make this program such a favorite of its viewers.
