Modern Family is back for its fourth season run, fresh from three consecutive Emmy wins. The mockumentary is still as funny as ever, with the biggest moment reserved for Jay's 65th birthday celebration.
The women of "Modern Family"
The fourth season premiere is called, "Bringing up baby."
Here are some of the episode highlights and hilarious one-liners from the characters:
1. Gloria struggles to tell Jay about her pregnancy. Last season, the viewers saw Jay reflect on the challenges of raising a child - especially at his age.
2. Cam and Mitch convince themselves they are happy despite the pain they've gone through from last season finale's failed adoption.
3. Lilly asks her dads where her baby brother is, and they struggle to tell her she won't have a sibling just yet. The little girl asks for a kitten instead. This won't be Lilly's last you-promised-me-a-baby-brother card.
4. Gloria tells Claire about her pregnancy. Jay's only daughter couldn't wait to see Gloria get f-a-t.
5. Haley is having a terrible hangover and Claire goes out of her way to make her eldest child feel even worse. Meanwhile, Dylan has temporarily moved in.
6. Cam and Mitch struggle with giant toy gifts for Lilly, an elephant and a gorilla. The toys would later be spotted in compromising -- and very funny -- positions.
7. Jay is ecstatic to hear he is going to have another baby. (One of the most touching moments in the series.)
8. For the first time, the show jumps in time. This is to fast forward Gloria's pregnancy, and she now shows a baby bump.
9. Manny is initially threatened, but he winds up writing a poem for his baby sister or brother. Jay has to stop him from reading, though.
10. Haley jokes about being pregnant. Claire tells her not to even think about it. (Now, what if?)
Now for the best one-liners in the episode:
"Like my uncle used to say, don't let a botched kidnapping kill a good afternoon." - Shorty
"It's a French delicacy called poutine." - Cam
"It looks like vomit so I'm not 'poutine' it in my mouth." - Jay
"Don't be disrespectful Luke. Anyone can have sex with Gloria." - Phil
