Did You Know?


Trish says that Manny stepped off a 16th century canvas by [Thomas] Gainsborough or [Anthony] van Dyck. Neither of those painters was a 16th century painter. Gainsborough was an 18th c. painter, and Van Dyck was a 17th c. painter. It's possible for Trish to have misspoken, but she is supposed to have a Ph.D, and be one of Christie's curators, as well as a board member of an art museum, and to be making Gloria jealous because she (Trish) is apparently perfect. This appears, then, to be an error on the part of the writers, who no doubt wanted to reference Gainsborough's The Blue Boy, and should have looked up the rest, but didn't. See more »

Modern Family Flip Flop
10 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The house Cameron and Claire worked on together is finally ready to sell but they have a really hard time to sell even with Phil the self proclaimed best house salesman around. The scenes while trying to sell the house to the men were funny because they used Hayley well and up against the adult members Sarah Hyland becomes a better comedic presence that deserves as much acclaim as any of those. The other side to the episode was Gloria being jealous of the potential new mother-in law to Manny even though this new women was jealous of her. The episode saw the return of the dog butler but was also the best use of Gloria in some time who is one of the weakest characters on the show week to week. The episode was fine with funny moments and some moments that I would call cringe worthy.

EPISODE GRADE: B- (MVP: Sarah Hyland)
