Modern Family (S6E15) - "Fight or Flight" - 2/18/15



MITCH AND CAM GET ALL THE BOYS TOGETHER TO THROW A BABY SHOWER FOR THEIR FAVORITE PARTY-GIRL TURNED MOM BESTIE, SAL, ON ABC'S "MODERN FAMILY"

Famed Magician Penn Jillette Guest Stars and Elizabeth Banks ("The Hunger Games") and Nathan Lane ("The Producers") Return

"Fight or Flight" - After a long reunion weekend with Phil's old cheer buddies, Claire jumps at the chance to snag the only first class seat left on the return flight home leaving Phil in coach and both have completely opposite experiences. Meanwhile, Gloria forces Jay to teach Manny how to defend himself against a bully in his cooking class, but when things backfire it seems that the real bully might be someone else. Mitch, Cameron, Pepper and the whole gang throw Sal a belated baby shower and they are all blown away by how motherhood has changed her, or has it really?, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Sounds like they're ripping off the classic SEINFELD episode when Jerry was in first class, but Elaine was stuck in coach.

I thought I saw all the "classic" Seinfeld episodes, will have to seek that one out.

Yeah but I bet they flip the script and Phil ends up having a great time while Claire ends up with the bad experience.

That's a given.

Do you always have to be so white?

Mitch/Cam and Pepper and his boyfriend deciding who takes the baby was cringe worthy. Just a shitty story line. Though I did like Sal and them bringing up what Blackhawks sounds like.

The other stuff was predictable but good. Made for an overall enjoyable episode. I didn't like Jay turning into a wimp at the end with Gloria. Seemed out of character.

I thought the episode started strong but ended with a whimper, they overstuffed the episode and then spent too much time on the wrong storyline.

He and Manny have always been afraid of her. Remember when they thought she killed the dog? "Don't call me a rat, she kills rats!!!"

Another "meh" episode from my perspective, although I did think Penn Jillette did a pretty good job.

Penn Jillette looks like he lost a LOT of weight.

edit: or what Deftones said.

Finally got around to this and thought that it was pretty good. I thought that they could have done more with the Luke storyline with his sisters.
