Sometimes I wonder if I could just write up a review of 'Modern Family' by listing all of the great quotes that come out of this show. Line for line, this has to be one of the cleverest series on television today. Even the episode title, 'Moon Landing,' recalls a great moment.
The action this week was split between Jay and Cameron heading off to the gym to play racquetball, Mitchell helping Gloria with a traffic-related legal problem, and Claire's reunion with an old work colleague from before Claire became a stay-at-home mom. Minnie Driver was well cast as the friend, Valerie, but her performance was completely overshadowed by the brilliance of the episode itself.
The comedy of errors at the Dunphy household leading up to Claire bringing Valerie by to see how great her life is as a full-time mother was classic sitcom, but it was still hilarious. That's why they become classics. I'll give it up for the kids, too, as Nolan Gould, Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland were all three brilliant in this sequence, along with Reid Ewing as Haley's boyfriend.
