Family dynamics

If you aren’t watching “Modern Family” then you need to fix that right quick, son. And not just because Phil (the father seen in this clip) is based in Salt Lake City, and my friends and I ran into him and his wife at a local restaurant. I guess “ran into” isn’t really accurate. It was more like, my friend was hyperventilating, and I told her that if she didn’t go up and say hi that I was going to embarrass the entire restaurant on her behalf. He couldn’t have been more lovely when I shoved her from behind and screamed DO IT.

Thank you, Ty Burrell, for indulging us that night.

This is one of my favorite scenes from the series. One of many, many, many.

This post was sponsored by no one. Not even my butt.

(Do you have a favorite scene?)
