Quotes

Mitchell Pritchett: You have a great house. Love the retro-sixties look. Of course, if this was the sixties, we would be a pair of "confirmed bachelors" and Lily here would be a Yorkie.
Amelia: And I'd still be trapped in a loveless marriage.

Parent's worst nightmare
7 March 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The theme that runs through today's chapter of this wonderful sitcom is embarrassment. Each one of the three families have their share of a sticky situation which is hard to get out of.

Take the Dunphys. The kids have prepared a breakfast to celebrate their parents anniversary. They gather all the goodies they made and go upstairs, but lo and behold, Claire and Phil were having sex, as the children open the door! What to do. The three small Dunphys dropped the tray and everything in it and fled the scene. Now Claire and Phil will have to sit and figure a way out of the mess thus created.

The Pritchetts are going to Las Vegas without Manny. Gloria is dreading the fact that she must put up with Claire and her bossy ways to the bake sale they got involved for school. Gloria, who is complaining to Jay, does not realize he has typed an email with her sentiments about the upcoming event and watches in horror as the mailing goes through. What to do? On the way to the airport Glora makes Jay make a U-turn back to Phil and Claire's hoping they can undo what they did.

Mitchell and Cameron have had it with their small fast food joint. Not only is the boss rude to them, they cannot avoid it. When the new restaurant Amelia opens near them, the partners figure a way to gain entrance, something they cannot get otherwise and eat there. To their surprise, Amelia has a young toddler and they figure getting closer to the owner through their kids. Their effort is a failure because the woman is impossible. To make matters worse, they spill strawberry juice on an expensive white carpet.

Michael Spiller, one of the geniuses behind the success of the program directed the episode. It was written by one of the series' creators, Steve Levitan with Jeffrey Richman and Elaine Ko. It was a fun program as the three families deal in their own fashion with those embarrassing moments they must confront. Fine job by all the regulars and Rachel Harris who is seen as Amelia.
