Modern Family 4×03: Read on, chop chop.

Modern Family 4×03: Snip

ABC’s doubling up the goods this week! The thrilling review sequel.

1. What just happened?!
Life changing moments happening in our favorite family. Phil and Claire are full of their 5 year plan, which involves a vasectomy. Phil seems slightly too excited about that in the beginning. Mitchell addresses a sensitive topic: Cam having (or in this case: not having) a job. Turns out mermaid costumes for cats kill your time perfectly. Gloria and Jay decide if they want to know the baby’s gender, while Gloria’s definitely-totally-completely-not showing already. Right, Gloria? It’s the belly shirt revival.

2. What was the most memorable quote or dialog this episode?
– Jay: Ï’m having a baby at 65. You want another surprise Gloria? Buy yourself a box of Cracker Jacks.”
– Claire: “I have post post office traumatic stress disorder”. Haley over the phone: ‘Stop smiling, it isn’t that clever.” [2 minutes later] Claire: “I have post post office traumatic stress disorder.” Phil over the phone: “Nailed it.”
– Jay, as he picks up Phil for his vasectomy appointment: “Let’s go, chop chop.”
– Manny: “They fired the music teacher.” Gloria: “Mister Namagachi?!” Manny: “THAT you can say.”

3. Cuteness vs. Useless
+ Cam glancing at his new shirt and curtains for a second. Sometimes it’s the little, subtle things in Modern Family.
– Alex gone goth. What?? Did we time travel five years back? I get that the writers are looking for an exciting twist in Alex’ story, but I was kind of rooting for the geeky overachiever character. Boohoo.

4. Rate it! (on a scale from 0 to 10)
Although I liked tonight’s first episode better, ‘failing’ is not in the Modern Family dictionary: 7,5.

What do you think of this week’s second episode?
