Phil has decided not to take any more chances with a surprise like his father-in-law Jay got when his wife Gloria became pregnant. Claire and him decided to undergo a vasectomy process to remedy the situation before it is too late. Getting it done is another story. Phil proves to chicken out after the possible pain he will experience.

Cam is having a fit because as a stay home parent, he feels his life is meaningless without the presence of Lily, who is now going to a prekindergarten school. Ever the theatrical person he is, Cam will look into other avenues where he can make himself useful. Mitch's efforts to help his partner get a job, has the opposite effect on Cam.

Gail Mancuso gets a much positive approach to the way she paced the episode, something that has been lacking at the beginning of this season. This installment was written by Danny Zucker who is involved in the production of this winning series. Ty Burrell gets an opportunity to shine as Phil. Eric Stonestreet's Cam is perfect as the man without a cause, or where to put his energy to good use.
