Storyline

Cameron is relishing his role as interim music director at Luke and Manny's school, and he's taking on the upcoming spring musical performance with a little too much zest and fervor. Meanwhile, Jay's brother, Donnie, is in town for a visit, and their relentless brotherly ribbing goes a little too far; and Phil convinces the family to be in his new realty ad, but when he goes as far as to wrap the family minivan in the ad, the results are unexpected.

Goofs

A series of cars drive by Claire and Haley in the van and honk/wave after seeing the suggestive ads on the sides of the van. If one assumes the cars honk once they see the ads on the side (not the back where Phil, Luke and Alex are shown) the last car that drives by honks much too early, i.e., at a point where they would not be able to see the side yet.

Epic Fail

I love Modern Family but sometimes they get it all wrong. The moral of this story for Claire, and presumably all women, is that our good years in life are when men want to screw us. Uhhh-what--now? How could they broadcast something so stupid.
