| by

Check out this week’s Modern Family recap, before your life turns into a music-less, gray hellscape…

Phil excitedly preps for his all-important bowling match as a new member of Jay’s team, before being thrown aside like AIDS at a cancer benefit…

After inheriting baby Joe for the day from Gloria, Mitchell and Cam find themselves a new model to use in their Oscars photo shoot.  With the help of Lily as an assistant, it’s not long before Joe has a blonde wig glued to his head like Laffy Taffy hugging a tooth.

Claire’s getaway to past triumphs, aka her college reunion, hits a deer in the road in the form of Phil.  He foolishly mixes up Tater (Bud Bundy from Married with Children, or his real name – David Faustino) with her real ex-flame, her past professor.  It’s not before long that she realizes her choice in life was the right one.

All good news in the Pritchett household, as Jay takes home the bowling gold, Manny lands the solo, Gloria gets a spa day, and Luke eats the last piece of Colombian cake.  Really, the only one who did not make out on this particular day is baby Joe, who receives a botched wig haircut, while everyone cares less as each family member walks away with a little lie stuffed under a collective bloated rug…

A Few Last Thoughts…

  • An entire episode without Hayley or Alex save for a few seconds in the conclusion…
  • “Well, you may as well be a dead hobo in the woods of a small town after a rainstorm because you have just been discovered!” – Cam to baby Joe
  • “My allergies are starting to cry.” – Phil
  • “We’ve had my dad’s baby for 45 minutes and he’s already in a dress.” – Mitchell
  • “I’m working on a plan B or should I say, a plan Bieber.” – Cam after giving the baby’s wig a haircut
  • “I’ve regretted throwing away things way more beaten up than Claire, so if this Campus Casa Nova had thoughts of reclaiming her, guess what hot-shot, I still own her.” – Phil
