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.

Did You Know?


In the episode "The Future Dunphys" the future Hailey is played by Justine Bateman, who played an almost identical character on the equally famous family sitcom _"Family Ties"(1982)_qv Both characters were pretty and popular, both were not very smart, both had smarter younger sisters, and both dated greasy dropout types for long periods of time on their shows.

Jay Pritchett: Let me tell you something about your prep school friends. I had a job working at a prep school checking coats, those rich snobs used to throw their coats at me, like I was nothing. And this was before your lightweight fabrics. Those things were heavy. You see this scar?
Manny Delgado: The one you got from the war?
Jay Pritchett: That's what I tell people. I acutally got this form the scalloped edge of a Burbury coat toggle. I'm still not sure there isn't a piece still in there.

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)
