Claire is stuck in an airport trying to get a hold of Haley after having a heated argument. However she can't get a hold of her, so she starts to call Phil, Mitchell and cam and jay. However a long the way she discovers that she is half way to Vegas with andy and she bought a "what to expect when you are expecting" book. Phil and Claire assume the worst. (That andy got her pregnant and so decided to run off to Vegas and get married). However, Hayley was at home all the time. She was hanging out with andy and left her phone in his car and the next day he was travelling to Vegas to see a wedding so that is why it looked like she was in Vegas. She baught the book because her new boss wanted to start designing maternity cloths, so in order for him to do that they needed to get in the mind of pregnant people.

Connection Lost: Innovative TV episode utilizes current technology of skype = the best comedy show on television today!
12 March 2015 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

The wife and I have watched every single episode of Modern Family since it first went on the air and the current episode (Feb 25, 2014 Season 06, Episode 16) was a first. The new concept for a television series had the entire episode being seen through a computer whilst Claire was forced to skype. Claire was in an airport terminal waiting for her flight back home when she accidentally dropped her cell phone in the toilet which limited her communication avenues. As a result of her little accident the entire episode required Claire to stay in touch with her family while she was in the airport via a computer whereby she skyped with various members of her family either individually and sometimes concurrently while talking and skyping with three or more family members at once.

Gradually the storyline evolves with the family coming to an (incorrect) conclusion that Haley must be pregnant and so she has run off with Andy to get married in Las Vegas without telling anyone. The entire family communicates with Claire through Skype and Claire's little secrets come out that are just hilarious. These secrets divulged by Jay remind Claire of her own self as a young and very pregnant women in which she was also reminded by Jay of the time she eloped with Phil.

We did watch this episode on our 60 inch TV, but maybe we should have just connected on our laptops so that we the audience could also feel that we were skyping along with Claire and the entire Pritchet clan. Kudos to the producers and the director for integrating technology with television that reflected the current times which allow high-speed internet, voice and visual technologies via Skype to set a new tone for television comedy in such a creative, unique and entertaining way. This episode should win an Emmy for its creativity and maybe we won't have to wait until the entire audience can vote on line (some day) for Modern Family to win their next round of Emmy's as this series so justly deserves once again.

Modern Family continues to rate a 10 out of 10. Best TV comedy on the air today!
