Episode cast overview, first billed only:


When Phil takes Claire to the hospital for her angiogram, they encounter a family that is basically their future selves, and they're not sure they like what they see. Manny drags Jay on a visit to a prospective private school, and Mitch and Cam organize a fun "girls day" for Gloria and Lily -- but it becomes a spontaneous "cultural day" instead.

Modern Family The Future Dunphys
4 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Dunphy's get to see their future while Lily must be though about her Vietnamese culture and Manny try's to get into a private school when Jay is the one who really wanted to get in. Jay and Manny spend too much time together and it's always my least favourite part because Manny has become near insufferable for me to hear and watch. The new Lily has become good for one liners and this week she created some funny moments and showing the continuing weakness of Sofia Vergara who once again was bad to watch. The best part of the episode was Phil and Claire seeing their future while in the hospital which was funny I thought and made the best use of the Dunphy family as a whole ensemble using them all at the same time.

EPISODE GRADE: C+ (MVP: Julie Bowen)
