Quotes

Cameron Tucker: I knew for a fact Claire never returned my Tupperware. I just needed a few minutes alone to find it. And when I did, I'd never have to hear them snicker again. "Oh, silly Cam", or "forgetful Cam", because revenge is a dish best served cold. And even better two days later out of a 24-ounce, microwave-friendly, burp-seal Pak-N-Stor.

10 April 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A family brunch at Claire and Phil's gather the three families for a relaxed meal. Not everything goes right. Jay remembers something that happened some time ago where his convertible got ruined because his former wife did not listen to the weather report. Claire feels guilty not having come out with the truth about that incident. Mitchell, embracing the spirit of her sister's admission, confesses he was instrumental in the 'hole-in-one' for which Jay's name is held in high respect at the club.

While taking the girls and Lily to see if a doll can be mended, Phil accidentally learns about Haley's little secret, which he knew nothing about. It clearly blows his mind to have to learn about it after the whole family knew about it before him.

Cameron has decided to rescue his Tupperware dish which he brought to Claire's and was never returned. When Cam pulls his back, he is taken to the couch to rest. He sends everyone out instead in order to locate his precious dish.

A funny episode directed by Jason Winer and written by Elaine Ko, who is a staff writer for this sitcom. Ms. Ko keeps getting better and better. Her script touches on many subjects. The most important one is about recognizing past mistakes and deal with them. Lies always have a way to come back with a vengeance as it has been the case in this chapter where things are revealed. In fact, owning up to the situation has the desired effect in the case of Jay getting closer to his two grown up children.
