We Need to Discuss Modern Family

Modern Family is my favorite show to have come along in a long time. The writers have done an incredible job of making it simultaneously hilarious (there has been riotous laughter in our house) and heartwarming. How many of you are watching it? It is hands-down the best sitcom in ages! My favorite characters are the lovably flamboyant Cam and clueless Phil, with Manny coming in at a strong third. That kid is so cute and charming! I am a fan of the show on Facebook and I couldn’t resist sharing some of these favorite moments they shared.

{“I’m the cool dad. That’s my thing. I’m hip. I surf the web. I text LOL: laugh out loud, OMG: oh my god, WTF: why the face." – Phil}

{"I can’t turn it off, it’s who I am." – Cam}

{Phil, Claire, and their kids}

{Fabian and I are HUGE advocates of Costco, so we just about died during this scene!

“Cam, what is this place?…They sell baby formula and they sell coffins. You can literally buy everything from birth to death." – Mitch}

{“I gave her my heart and she gave me a picture of me as an old time sheriff." – Manny}

{The role of Gloria was written specifically for the beautiful Sofía Vergara who is really funny on the show.

"You be the wing in his back and not the spit in his face. Something my mom always said…it’s gorgeous in Spanish." – Gloria}


Modern Family airs Wednesday nights on ABC at 9/8 pm central

  1. hahha. i am obsessed with the show too. halarious. i love sofia vergara, she is so funny…

    i love the episode when they brought lily to the family for the first time….they are tooo funny!
    glad we can share the amazing halariousness of the show!
    happy weekend, paloma.


  2. #1 Just caught up last night on the most recent episode and you literally read my mind. Phil and Cam are my favorites as well. Phil especially is just hilarious while still managing sweetness. Fantastic.

    #2 Costco was one of my favorites.

    It’s actually refreshing to a like a show this much again. Not since the beginnings of The Office have I felt that.

  3. Definitely best comedy on right now. Replacing The Office for #1. My husband is still quoting lines from Arrested Development and they’re the same writers. Btw, love reading your blog!

  4. What makes this show so great is we pretty much all can relate to it in some form or another. Loved the Christmas sweaters. That was my ex mother in law!! Great post and I do hope you have a fun, Costco filled weekend.

  5. I love this show! My boyfriend and I are in like tears at the end of each show. The one this week when Phil was scared to go under the house made me laugh harder then ever!

  6. Totally agree. You said it best – hilarious and heartwarming. After laughing for a solid 20 minutes, I was close to tears at Phil’s warm re-cap at the end of the show the other night. This one is must see tv…


  7. YES!!! One of my favorites EVER. I am head over heels in love with Cam and I think that it’s the best show to come around in years.

    I was also equally obsessed with Six Feet Under!

  8. Best show ever. We crack up laughing from it.
    My favorite is Cam, second is Gloria.

    My favorite scene is where Cam is hysterical crying listening to Lilly cry on her monitor. I watched it ten times in a row.

    Also started watching married with children again, and its pretty funny too!!!

  9. I am yet another huge fan of Modern Family. Each character is written and acted so well that I can’t pick a favourite. Thanks for reminding me about Why The Face? Hilarious! xo

  10. Best new show on TV in years!! Finally a good new sitcom. So much better than any reality show! Also, Cougar Town is growing on me. Didn’t like it at first, but the actors have great chemistry together (and after the first few shows, it stopped being about “cougars”)

  11. My fiance and I are obsessed. His favorite is Phil while I am a Al Bundy girl through and through. Weds are my fave weeknight now.
    “I’m wild. I drive through neighborhoods that have only recently been gentrified” -Phil

  12. it’s our favorite too! we sit down as a family and watch it every week…sometimes again the next night and the next. we love Cam and Manny. we’ve even started using MF quotes at our house. “Robot Dog..Yogurt Maker..I can’t stop thinking of things I want!”

  13. Absolutely love the show!!! Just like Phil, I too LOL at the show 🙂 Phil and Manny are my favorite characters and my favorite episode so far is when Phil has a kidney stone. Too much!!

  14. I totally agree sweetie. Finally a show that comes along that makes me laugh out loud. Its clever, sarcastic and the characters are wonderful.

  15. “Why the Face” is THE best line to come out of a sitcom in a looooong time. Love it and use it often. I wasn’t a fan of the wtf prior to his little spin on it. Great show, it’s a gem!!

  16. OMG…I’m laughing so hard my DH just came in to see what was so darn funny…I don’t watch alot of TV so I never heard about this…but I will be taping it for sure…thanks and have a great weekend, fondly, Roberta

  17. I am in love with this show! The only show I have to watch “live” and not through dvr. Phil kills me!! I loved the Valentines day episode.

  18. Hi! I just found your blog and I love it! Also love the Modern Family, I missed a few episodes so I have to go to hulu to watch them. I bust a gut at “Caesar Sala-zar”

  19. I am sooooo with you on this one. I get my biggest laughing fix when I watch this show. you know the kind when you are alone but you still look around to see if you can share this wonderful laughing moment with someone, too funny! I am a big fan!! Kathysue

  20. I hardly watch network tv anymore, and I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t even know Modern Family existed until your post! It’s so hilarious. I can’t stop using why the face. Thanks for the post!

  21. I was really interested how this show would turn out when I saw the previews. It seems truly unique and actually witty. I’m glad to hear a good review. Maybe I will give it a try!

  22. For sure one of the BEST shows on tv right now. There are not many shows that make you BLURT out hysterical laughter! I just love it. They touch the simple things in life with great humor!
