Modern Family The Butler's Escape
17 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Luke is following in his father's footsteps to become a magician. Also Cameron is starting a job as a music teacher at school walking his family up in the night with Lily making him stop. Gloria is missing Jay as he is leaving for his trip to San Fransisco.Cameron comes out in a yellow shirt with a music note on it for his new job as a music teacher. Luke says to Claire that he wants to stop doing magic but Phil does not think he should stop doing it. Luke then disappears as he gets angry. Cameron teaching music is too much for these people. While trying to teach the class it does not go well. Jay calls Claire looking for advice to deal with Gloria snoring but she says he must accept it while still wondering how much weight she has gained. While in the staff room Cameron seems to be alone. Phil brings up the idea of Luke doing The butler's escape. Alex then tells her mom that her friend got pregnant and that is why she is mean lately. Luke quits his magic as Phil try's to do the hard trip. While spending an evening with Cameron we see that it was Claire who was helping Mitchell but they do not thank her. When Gloria calls jay saying she is in Chicago he packs quickly to get home but she was angry so she slaps him. Alex and Jaley talk and Haley is very mean to her. Boring episode.

EPISODE GRADE: C+ (MVP: Ty Burrell)
