Elizabeth Banks was great talking about the baby. Loved Edward Norton's British accent.

So does this mean Manny is officially the "creepy" uncle?

You're not a Fandau!

holy shit this episode hit all the right notes for me. Shitty anniversary gifts from the spouse, friends that never moved on and hold it against you, and grandpa knowing the kid's games.

6/5 stars!

Great when Al Bundy told his granddaughter that it would be rude to back out of an invitation, and she got all happy thinking he was letting her leave.

Sloppy Jay's and a western -

How is Dylan still around after the "In the Moonlight" fiasco?

I was really surprised to read that Sarah Hyland, who plays Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell's older daughter Haley, turns 19 next week.

Yeah she definitely doesn't look 18/19. She does, however, look like a younger version of Mila Kunis.

I wasn't liking the Norton story until he found out that Phil was not a fan of the band.

Ed O'Neill is consistently great week in and week out.

and I always enjoy seeing Elizabeth Banks.

We love this show. This episode was hilarious on all fronts! I love how that middle daughter plays with her older sister's head and brothers head too...especially when he thought Jay was dying....

I managed to see the episode about the bike for Phil's son, and the toddler playgroup. This episode was on last nite, an hour before the one with the great guest stars.

In real life Julie Bowen wouldnt give Ty Burrell a second glance. Glad its fantasy land, since Burrell's great.

I think this episode was great, and I want to know how people could think it was off last night.

Ed O'Neill is funny but the star of the show is most definitely Manny. That kid is absolutely hilarious.

Loved when Jay busted Haley trying to leave their house.."Hi honey, oh geez you scared me, lightbulb went out..." "Nobody gets off the rock."
