Did You Know?


In this episode Phil looks back on the family's time at family camp and his team's color wars win the summer before. His team's color was white and he comes home wearing a tee-shirt saying "if you ain't white, you ain't right" which their black cab driver thinks is racist. In real life Ty Burell who plays Phil is actually 1/64th African having a third great-grandmother who was from Madagascar. See more »


(at around 55 mins) The car Phil is driving turns left without Phil actually turning the wheel. See more »


Jay Pritchett: You should have a system.
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: I have a system. I put things down and then I remember where I put them.
Jay Pritchett: And that's preferable to, say, putting the keys in the keyholder that just happens to look like a large key?
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: Stop screaming!

User Reviews

Near perfect episode about nothing.
14 May 2021 | by jpapanoneSee all my reviews

I don't care what the point of plot is/was.

This was just fun.

What a great episode example of how enjoyable this show is or can be. It's why the show became so popular...just so enjoyable to watch.

Claire, Luke, Phil...just fun.

Cam and Mitch...funny.

Manny was funny when he was just a really old man boy. I wish they would have kept that spirit of the character alive instead of ruining the character. Jay was good too.

Haley and Alex were the weakest part...and they were still fine.

I have no complaints about this episode.

Great ideas executed excellently. I wish all Modern Family's were like this for the long haul.

Not sure what went wrong when...but it went from this greatness to unwatchable in later seasons.
