'Modern Family' recap: Free Wheelin'

The holidays may be over, but at least we have the return of Modern Family to keep us warm. Oh, how I missed my favorite Family (sorry mom and dad, you're ok too). And what a wonderful welcome back episode -- I could have written down almost every line as one of the funniest of the night, they were all so good. Though I was able to narrow down two favorite moments, and I am sure you can guess what they were. First, watching Gloria attempting to ride a bike -- while managing to not get snatched at the same time, but then she did! -- was hysterical. (As a side note, I think they should have Sofia Vergara read books aloud on tape as Gloria, just so we can hear her amazingly over-the-top Colombian accent on repeat.) And having Luke teach her was priceless. I love that they're giving Luke a little more play. That kid is certainly growing on me. When he chased Gloria down the road with a water gun, well, let's just say, I almost had a little accident myself.

My second favorite moment of the show was of course watching James Marsden (27 Dresses) play a homeless (and often shirtless) hippie freak. He can jump in my hot tub anytime! But I digress…. As if Cam and Mitchell aren't entertaining enough, adding in the dreamy Marsden as a spacey, Reiki-obsessed healer named Barry who doesn't like to be touched, was mere icing on the proverbial cake. (Can we start a petition to have him return to the show, please?) Though the best moment of the entire show, hands down, was when he and Cam were fighting in Lily's toy princess castle, sticking their heads out of different little windows and yelling to Mitchell. How did those actors get through that scene with straight faces??? That's called talent, my friends.
