Modern Family’s up for a Critic’s Choice Nominee, and what better way to celebrate the show’s nomination by re-living some of the things that make modern family so great – the classic one liners and moments of the show! If you want, please add your favorite moments and quotes in the comment section!
Mitchell: I know I’m not the handiest guy, but I’m still a man and I want to be able to look out into my yard and say, “There’s a little bit of me in that princess castle.”
Mitchell: Leave it to the gays to raise the only underachieving Asian in America.
Mitchell: You’re so gay you can’t even think of real girls names.
Alex: I’m just letting you guys know, I’m not taking care of him when you guys die.
Alex: If Haley got pregnant, would you ever pretend she got mono for a few months and then tell everyone the baby’s yours?
Alex: I guess what I’m trying to say is, “Don’t stop believing. Get this party started.”
Haley: Don’t feel. Just go splash water on your face and man up. We’re your mother now.
Haley: Look at him getting coffee and not putting chocolate in it! He’s so mature!
Haley [on her biggest fear]: Never getting my driver’s license, or getting one and the picture sucks.
Luke: Sorry I aggravated you, and just so you know, a lot of people think I’m adorable.
Luke: I brought you some soda, but I couldn’t find any straws, so you’ll have to drink it like cats.
Luke: When you walked through a spider web… when we were playing with a Ouija board and the wind blew a door shut…
Cam: Well, you’re pretending to be something you’re not, and boys do that for girls or really dreamy boys.
Cam: Richard Gere, I’ll be the officer, don’t be a gentleman.
Cameron: I’m like a big runaway charity truck and Mitchell is my off-ramp full of safety gravel.
Cameron: I’m like a mother bear. When I hear my cub crying, I have to run to her.
Phil:“My wife won’t let me go to Vegas.” Trust me that is not a phone call you want to make to a group of ex-college male cheerleaders. They will mock you with a hurtful rhythmic taunt.
Phil: It’s like they say, sometimes God closes a door, but sometimes he closes it so hard, you can’t get your wife out.
Phil: Angela Lansbury was the grand marshal. Good times she wrote.
Jay: I’m gonna walk like a man… right to that bar. That would be hilarious if you were familiar with Frankie Valli.
Jay: You know, when you get a massage, you sound like a Tijuana prostitute.
Jay: Was that before or after you were delivered to my door in a squad car wearing nothing but your underwear and a police hat.
Manny: I have a tennis racquet upstairs I only use as a bubble-bath frothier.
Manny: Tell me about it, I’ve got a clingy 5th grader, I can’t shake.
Manny: Don’t skimp on linens. Don’t compliment a teacher on her figure. And when it comes to my mom, never ask questions I don’t want the answers to.
Claire: Kids these days get trophies just for showing up. What’s that gonna lead to? A bunch of thirty year olds living at home.
Claire: Honey, look at how long it just took us to figure out she’s insulting us.
Claire: You can’t have two fun parents… You know that kid Liam who wears pajama pants to school and pays for things with a hundred-dollar bill? Two fun parents.
Gloria: I love Manny, but sometimes, I…be a boy. Go outside kick a ball and steal something.
Gloria: He scared the baby cheeses out of me!
Gloria: In my culture, mothers are very clingy to their sons. In fact, the leading cause of death among Colombian women is when their sons get married. But I’m not like that.
