Did You Know?


Haley Dunphy: I see the look on his face every day. He acts as if he doesn't want me around!
Phil Dunphy: [returning in the other elevator and not seeing Haley] Give me the ticket. I'm going after her. This little 'chicken' game may work for your dad but it doesn't work for me! That's my little girl! I need her to know that no guy on Earth is good enough for her, much less a slimy middle-aged jeans salesman!

Modern Family Party Crasher
19 January 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Manny's birthday comes along and Jay has forgotten but only to make the upcoming surprise more surprising. Lily is gong through a phase and she gets married to Mitchell which Cameron does not like seeing. Haley's co-worker Kenny comes over and they go out even though he is much older then her, however her parents try to old back from saying anything about Haley's decisions. Gloria and Jay must steal a cake for Manny's upcoming birthday. Lily then gets a toy car and crashes it hurting herself. Gloria and Jay are running late so the two have to drive through the barriers. Claire tells Phil not to do anything about Kenny just because Haley is older now and hopefully will not become a rebel. Mitchell thinks Cameron has been struggling for sometimes but it turns out in general he is doing well with school going well with an example of a performance. The surprise party does not start off well as Manny comes to the house expecting nothing with a girl to kiss only for the family to ruin it with their timing. While Gloria try's to get Manny to come back to the party but somehow because of weird timing the baby wants to come even though she is not letting it. Manny comes down to the family but then Gloria's water breaks and she is about to have the baby. Some more injuries for Lily with the eye patch and being thrown in the water. At the hospital we learn she called for Cameron's help when she fell into the pool. It turns Haley was just trying to trick her parents into giving her some boundaries and then forgives her dad when she hears his true feelings. Gloria has her baby and everyone seems happy at the end. I was expecting the birthing episode to win Vergara an Emmy but this episode did nothing for her and made no point of showing comedy from birth which is good because I would not be able to deal with a screaming Gloria in labour. The episode was just boring and nothing special happened or anything really memorable which is what the show has been like for some time now.

EPISODE GRADE: C (MVP: Sofia Vergara)
