Haley goes to college
28 May 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

For some parents, a child's departure for college can be not only dramatic, but pivotal in the life of the family. That is the case as Phil and Claire prepare for the momentous occasion of their oldest daughter's leaving the life, as she knew it, for the unknown.

Jay and Gloria, who are expecting a baby, are perplexed when Manny talks them into a class for new parents. They feel as though they do not need, as both have experience in that department. They prove to be an irritating factor for the class they enroll,

At Mitch and Cam's place, they are all excited as they get Lily for the start of kindergarten. They are not prepared to witness a little boy hitting their girl. As it happens, the boy is the son of lesbians. A feud ensues, so they are ask to make peace and bring their kids to like one another.

Directed by Jeff Melman with a screenplay by Steve Levtan, the creator of the series, and Dan O'Shannon, a frequent collaborator of the program. The whole cast gets to do their best as an ensemble. The best aspect of the episode is the interaction of the Dunphys, as they separate themselves from Haley.
