Quotes

Phil Dunphy: We're gonna have to settle this dispute in court - the Food Court. The honorable Judge Cinnabon presiding.
Haley Dunphy: The food court? That place smells like the inside of Luke's bicycle helmet.
Alex Dunphy: I like the food court.
Lily Tucker-Pritchett: Me too.
Phil Dunphy: Don't worry, girls. We won't deprive ourselves just 'cause Hayley's aversion to...
Alex Dunphy: [laughs, then stops herself] Oh. Oh, Hayley's aversion. I thought you said... never mind.

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.
