'Modern Family' recap: Frankie says relax
Image Credit: Danny Feld/ABCAfter last week’s airport debacle it was nice to see that our favorite goofy family actually made it to Hawaii. (Claire managed to sober up on the plane! Haley on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky…). Sometimes vacations with the whole family are more stressful than they are relaxing, but then again that may depend on how you define relaxing. For instance, Mitchell likes to immerse himself in the culture by touring lavender farms, while Jay is happy ordering everything with a side of fries. For me, relaxing means kicking back with an A+ episode of Modern Family so without further ado, the 10 best lines from “Hawaii”:
Claire: I got pregnant with Haley.
Phil: My bad!
Manny: Don’t you want to keep the room neat, you know in case we entertain?
Luke: Who would we entertain?
Manny: I noticed some lovely tweens down by the kids’ club, maybe we can find a nice spot near them by the pool and send over a couple of virgin Mai Tais. They may be interested in two sophisticated men like us.
Jay: I just ordered an extra long straw to avoid accidentally doing a sit up.
Cameron: He was a very nice man when we met him, but based on his recent letters I have a small fear he’s become a [whispers] war lord.
Gloria: I thought one of the advantages of marrying an older guy was that I was going to be able to relax. But all of this swimming and running and rowing, it’s just like how some of my relatives got into this country!
Cameron: It would be like Lewis telling Clark that he didn’t like to walk. Sidenote: We’re very good friends with a couple named Lewis and Clark. Clark bought a big sparkly belt in New Orleans that he calls his Louisiana Purchase.
Mitchell: Oh sweet Lady Gaga that is good.
Manny: Oh no, who will pee all over the bathroom floor?
Luke: I was brushing my teeth at the same time…you try to do that.
Luke: I had bread, I had cheese, and I had an iron. What was I supposed to do?
Mitchell: Why did you dress her in jungle print?
Cam: Because I thought it would be cute!
Mitchell: She’s going to think she’s back in Vietnam!
Was Phil surprising Claire with the wedding she never had the cutest moment ever? (Almost as good as Jim’s Niagara Falls surprise for Pam on The Office? Or better?). He may be goofy, but he’s also right, the kid does still have a few moves. And why does the ukulele make even a song like “Eye of the Tiger” sound so much sweeter? Did you love Manny and Luke as Odd Couple roommates? Luke, FTW! Which of your favorite lines did I miss, PopWatchers? Sound off below!
