'Modern Family': The five best lines from last night's episode, 'En Garde'

Posted on

So I’m (technically) on vacation today, and my colleague Ken Tucker is handling recap duties for last night’s Manny-centric Modern Family. Click here to check out his take, but in the interim, I had to share my five favorite lines from “En Garde.” In descending order (drumroll please) they are:5) “I saw a ghost.” –Luke, failing to help Phil seal the deal on his real-estate sale

4) “Cam, no!” (needs no explanaysh)

3) “Haley is so pretty. So she can meet someone who’s the best at something.” –Phil, pondering his not-so-bright daughter’s future

2) Gloria explaining Manny’s natural aptitude for fencing: “It’s in his blood. His father was a master swordsman. He was an artist with his sword! I mean, the way he throws the sword, I mean, he was legendary.”

1) “I’m fairly confident that Dad’s proudest moment was when you finally took off the flame-red unitard.” –Claire, discussing the end of Mitchell’s skating career

What did you think of last night’s show? Did I miss anyone’s favorite quips? Then by all means, share below!
