Synopsis:

Spoiler:
An earthquake hits, leaving Claire stuck in the bathroom with the plumber, Manny experiencing an existential crisis while out with Jay, and Mitchell and Cameron digging themselves deeper into a lie when they use the quake to get out of a themed brunch party thrown by their friend, Pepper.

Yeah I love that promo photo. More shows need to shoot stuff like this than the cast just standing around looking bored.

And that promo shot is awesome.

---

Mitchel: "We can't die. If they find us in these outfits that would be very bad for the gays."

lol @ Luke walking right into the wall

Jay: "Mitchell used to caddy for me. Of course, he spent most of his time chasing butterflies."
Manny: "You won't catch me doing that."
Jay: "Good for you..."
Manny: "I'm terrified of them."

I didn't find it as funny as usual, but still a solid episode.

Promo shot is awesome. This episode wasn't as funny as it usually is, but still had some "lol" moments. Luke walking into the wall was great.

Not as good as past episodes, but still a great episode! Did not like the stuff with Pepper at all really, Everything else was pretty great.

Re: Modern Family -- "Earthquake" -- 10/06/10

I liked Phil with the broken step.

PHIL "I'm dancing on it like Shirley Temple with that black guy."
PLUMBER: "Bill Bojangles Robinson."
PHIL: "BILLBOJANGLESROBINSON! I SAID IT FIRST!"

Or when he tripped on it later running up the stairs:
"Sorry that...(trip)...you filthy....."

Of course, it was obvious that Claire was going to go down too.

Didn't care for Manny & Jay at all. Manny was more annoying than amusing this week.

Loved Cameron's face when Mitch told Pepper that Cam still had feelings for him.

The weakest episode of this show to date, but still had some great lines.

I thought the part at Phil and Claire's house was the only bright spot of the episode.

I love this show, but this was the worst episode of the series. Now that it's out of their system, things can go back to normal.

I thought it was pretty hilarious minus the Pepper stuff-- although the names of the parties were good.
"Seder-day Night Fever". lol

Now we know why the episode wasn't that good.

But yeah, a few LOLs here and there, but certainly the weakest episode ever?

I loved the Pepper/Cam/Mitchell part. How terrible a liar Cam was, and how Mitchell had to go and do everything that Cam said happened. Loved how Mitchell got to break the frog figurine, and I just love Lilly especially when she gets in some sort of costume Cam has put her in. And as someone already said, the look on Cam's face when Mitchell told Pepper that Cam still had feelings for Pepper was hilarious. And the "Yah, I'm doing this to you" look on Mitchell as he was doing it was great.

Manny and Jay was so so, but I thought Gloria was great since that's how my relatives are with church and God.

I liked it and loved Nathan Lane channeling his Birdcage character.
Love the cast photo too.
