Lily curses
5 February 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Claire is trying to put her thoughts together about her impending debate with Duane Bailey for a spot in City Council. The family feels she is not prepared, so they stage a Q&A session to test her on the issues. Claire comes across as defensive, no matter what Phil and the kids tell her to avoid and what to concentrate.

Jay's dog, Stella, throws herself into the pool. A horrified Jay goes after her, pulling out of the water. Suddenly, they cannot leave the patio door open for fear Stella will jump in the water; they fear the dog will drown if they are not careful. Gloria feels she has been neglected in favor of the animal.

At Mitchell and Cameron, they have been practicing with Lily for an upcoming wedding of a friend, who wants the girl to be a flower girl. At one point, Lily, who speaks little, burst out saying the 'F' word, to Mitchell complete amazement and Cam's total amusement. Mitch is horrified Lily will say it again. He tries all ways to tell the girl it is not right what she is saying. To make matters worse, the flower girl outfit is something else with lights in the dress, or the head ornament.

The day of the debate arrives. A nervous Claire is a bundle of nerves. What's more, the proceeding is being televised on a local channel. As Claire is clearly losing her battle, Phil gets up to defend his wife. There are some funny moments in his speech, which someone thinks is hilarious enough to edit it and send it to Youtube for a funny segment.

As Gloria gets ready to go to the wedding, she has to wait for Jay and Manny, obviously running late while dressing. As she looks to the pool, Gloria watches Stella in the water. She tries all kinds of things, to no avail. Gloria ends up in the pool with her fancy dress and all as she gets Stella out of danger. Later on, the family puts on a lifesaver costume on Stella. She swims again toward the filter, where the object of her getting in the pool lies hidden.

The wedding begins and a cute Lily is seen preceding the bride to the altar. Her costume is lit up, as well as those of the bridesmaids, the bride and the whole wedding party. The proud fathers, Cam and Mitch are ecstatic watching Lily at the altar. At one point, the two daddies become horrified as the little girl blurts out the famous word!

Chris Koch directed Cindy Chupack's funny screenplay. Children are like sponges and Lily is no different. The mere thought of Lily repeating a curse word is incredible, but possible, a dilemma some parents must endure. While Cam thinks is hysterical and laughs about it, Mitch does not take it as casually. Of course, the whole thing is done as a joke and the chapter in the sitcom is funny.
