Did You Know?


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 »


In the scene where Dylan visits Haley at home, when Claire grabs Dylan as he's going up the stairs you can see a member of the crew in the mirror in the background behind Claire. See more »


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.

Be wind in his back not the spit in his face
21 December 2019 | by hclovehcSee all my reviews

It's warm when Jay said I am happy for you. It's family who always support you redardless of any misunderstanding before. I hope I could set up a family like this: try to be a cool father, try to learn how to understand children and try to accept the children's choice. I feel so sorry to miss watching this TV show for these many years.
