Modern Family - "A Hard Jay's Night" - 4/2/14

"A Hard Jay's Night" - Mitch struggles to hide his true feelings about the unflattering wedding topper Cam's father whittled out of soap for them, Phil tries to help Gloria sell her pre-Jay apartment but they get sidetracked at the neighborhood salon, and Claire and the kids head over to Jay's early to help him prep for the special night with the family he's hosting but they end up just butting heads, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Manny: "sorry"

Hi, i wanna ask a question.

Cam: Lily loved having that chicken.
Mitchell: One more time than she realized.

I didn't get the joke, can someone explain?

They ate the chicken, but didnt tell Lily the chicken they ate was the one she had been given. So she didn't realize she was enjoying the same chicken a different way (eating vs. playing with it)

Yep. They cooked it up without her knowing.

That was a great, hilarious episode. I had sort of given up on the show, but this one was as good as the first couple of seasons. I totally missed that chicken joke and English is my native language!

I thought it's pretty fucked up that Cam sent the photo that the model was made from on purpose. I didn't find it funny, but rather a destructive behavior in a relationship.

I disagree, because it's a sitcom and it was funny.

Cam: My dad made this. He's a world-class soap carver. Once when I was a kid I cussed and my mom washed my mouth out with the leaning tower of Pisa. She still blames herself to this day.

When he said it was the Leaning Tower I was like "whoa..." then they acknowledged it. Funny moment.

This response begs the question (that means your response is making me curious about something in case you've never heard this saying), what does "greenhole" mean?

I'm assuming it means virgin or unused.

She did have a funny line about the cake topper, "I guess there wasn't enough soap to add me."

The idea of Luke and Manny chasing girls is a great concept, but I don't think they've done all that well by it yet. I didn't like their story here.

Rest of the episode was great. Cam and Mitch had a good story which doesn't happen that often.
