'Modern Family' recap: Welcome to Relaxistan

One of the many things I love about Modern Family is that a good episode will make your own life seems more hilarious -- and I don't mean that in a negative way at all. Take the first few seconds of last night's episode, for instance, when Claire reached into a box of "old and outdated clothes" that were going to be donated to a neighborhood family (who had lost their house and belongings in a fire) and she pulled out a shirt that looked exactly like the one she was wearing. Small moments like these are what I love about this show because they're a reminder that we all need to laugh during life's could-be ego-crushing moments.
