Synopsis:

Spoiler:
In an attempt to avoid turning into that old boring couple, Phil and Claire decide to revisit their Clive and Juliana role-playing rendezvous from last Valentine's Day. Meanwhile Jay has planned an elaborate surprise evening for Gloria, but his plans keep getting thwarted, and an admirer comes between Cameron and Mitchell on V-day, but they can't agree whom the admiration is directed towards.

Saw that earlier. Pretty drastic. Fortunately my wife looks great w/o makeup.

Anyhoo... looking forward to the show.

Loved the return of Clive and Julianna.

Great callback with Cam's gym shorts too.

Phil/Clive: "I'm pretty good at catching things from women in bars."

Phil falling headfirst into the bed

Despite some pretty funny moments, I think this was one of the weaker episodes of the season. The stories felt sort of disjointed and incomplete. Not sure exactly what it was, but something just felt off.

Nice to have Dylan back though.

All of Clive's lines were great.

Not as good as the last few episodes, but this series makes me laugh more than any of the past few years.

This is the funniest show since Arrested Development.

Funniest part was Cam's smug grin and swagger as he walked out of the elevator.

And as hot as Sofia Vergara is, Julie Bowen's sexiness was the highlight of the episode.

Everything Clive says is gold, he kind of reminds me of a Leslie Nielsen character

Highlight of the episode was the cork popping out of the champagne bottle when that woman walked in on Phil.

Jay pretty much always wins, doesn't he?

So without makeup she looks like Jessica Beil.

This episode was okay. I liked seeing "Clive" and "Julianna" back, but there weren't alot of laugh out loud moments. I did like the scene where the old woman walked in on Phil in his boxers on the bed and the cork popped.

I thought Phil driving the motorized scooter around was hilarious "He's a natural". I thought almost everything in this episode worked, I laughed my head off.

They definitely to do Clive and Julianna every year.

I wasn't a big fan of Manny hitting on Maebe, oh wait...

Ha, yea, no kidding... that and the little ending bit with the delivery guy were very weak, but the rest of the episode was phenomenal, had me the whole time.

This show continues to impress me week after week.

It was more subversive when Manny didn't know Maebe wasn't actually his blood.
