Storyline

Jay recently married Gloria. Now Jay is trying hard to keep up with his much younger and hotter Colombian wife, along with her passionate pre-teen son, Manny. Claire is having a hard time raising her own family. Her husband Phil is great, except that he thinks he's "down" with their three kids, much to all their embarrassment. And, Mitchell and his enthusiastic partner Cameron have just made a major life change by adopting a Vietnamese baby named Lily. Written by ABC.com

Trivia

ABC loved both the show pitch from Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan (a series with three family structures: a traditional similar-age WASP couple with kids, a May-December marriage with a step-kid, and a same-sex relationship who had just adopted a daughter) and the pilot episode so much that the network took the unprecedented step of showing the entire pilot at the upfront meetings for advertisers. It was so well-received that ABC then renewed the show for a 2nd season without even waiting for the Nielsen ratings for the pilot airing (which were excellent). See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Claire Dunphy: Honey, do you have anything to say to your daughter about her skirt?
Phil Dunphy: Sorry. Oh yeah, that looks really cute sweetheart.
Claire Dunphy: No, it's way too short. People know you're a girl you don't need to prove it to them.
