Season 6 of Modern Family left Haley Dunphy and Andy the manny in dire straits in the romance department—and that web is about to get a lot more tangled.
When we last saw them, Phil — err, the robo version of Phil, at least — unsuccessfully attempted to tell the pair that they’re not just good buddies but are actually in love. When technology fails him (story of my life), a disappointed Haley is all alone while Andy, unbeknownst to Haley, runs off to propose to his obviously totally-wrong-for-him girlfriend.
But in this first exclusive snippet from the premiere, a frantic Phil is successful in getting through to his daughter.
“Haley and Andy love each other, but they don’t know it!” he yells to the entire family on speakerphone before addressing Haley directly: “I could tell by the way he hugged you goodbye.”
Andy’s phone is, conveniently, off, but Phil knows he’s going to a beach — and Haley just so happens to know which one he likes.
