Jay Pritchett: Claire once asked me how Phil won me over. He hasn't yet, but when he stops trying too hard and acts like a real human being, he comes close. And that's what I need to do with Pilar.

The Godfather: Phil Dunphy Style
24 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is easily one of my favorite episodes of Modern Family--heck any episode of any TV show ever. The reason this is so great is one-hundred percent because of The Godfather references as Phil and Claire are about to become the godparents to Flugencio Joseph Pritchett. The main idea of this episode is that Claire is busy and unable to help the kids with their problems. Haley accidentally runs into her employer's lemon tree, Luke calls his teacher mom and everyone is making fun of him, and Alex is having problems with a birthday party of one of her classmates. Phil tries and fails to win with kindness by trying to convince these people to be cool about the problems going on, but he totally makes things worse. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria deal with family drama as Jay draws a parallel between himself and Phil and Gloria's mother and himself. Another very funny thing about this episode is Lily's sarcasm that she picked up from Claire. Cam and Mitch worry their butts off that they are setting a bad example for their young daughter, and are greatly relieved when they find that Claire is the culprit. Cue the awesomeness: Phil and Claire go up to the alter to Christen Flugencio and the same organ music playing in the Godfather as Michael's godson is being baptized. The show draws a brilliantly funny comparison between the two baptisms as Luke does some dirty work to get back at the people antagonizing the children,in the same fashion as Michael's mobsters kill all of their enemies. Both Godfathers know that as they "renounce Satan" that they are involved in darker deeds, and it is a hilarious spoof.
