"If they gave awards for starting fires, I’d be getting one of those too." Luke is so logical! Manny saluting the flag was maybe my favorite moment in the entire episode, though Phil’s gross story about “Lukewarm” water and the very concept of Luketonium were up there as well.

I’m pretty sure that back in the day, I watched the episode of Full House where they went to Disney World about a thousand times, and when I grew tired of that, I watched the Family Matters one. Much as I hate blatant product placement (I still shudder at Claire and Haley’s trip to Target), I’m a sucker for group outings to the Happiest Place on Earth. But that’s not the only reason I liked “Disneyland.”

"You know, when I met you, you were eating cereal out of a bucket." Manny was great in this episode — he hit his jokes well, looked adorable in his fedora and gave the closing reflection speech well. Jay, however, out-did him in terms of hilarity (“So what do you say? Anybody up for a hobo adventure?!”) and Ed O’Neill acted the hell out of his scenes. Gloria obliging to be a trophy would have probably bothered me if he hadn’t sold his character so well.

Personally speaking, it’s easy for me to forget that Modern Family is revolutionary as far as network sitcoms go. Watching the two ultra-masculine fathers admit their issues about their sons being “gay for each other” was a nice reminder of that, as they handled the subject matter well.

1. Manny and Luke
Secret: Taking Uncle Cam’s car out for a spin to impress a girl.
Sentence: Absolutely nothing. They made it out clean, and Claire was none the wiser. Good work, Thelma — whoever you are. Let’s all hope Lily is one step closer to being put in her place. They also got away with sending an innocent dolphin-studying doll to the doctor — let’s just say they’re lucky she had already met her deductible for that month. On the bright side, she can have a new friend in Alex’s doll, Geneviève.

Siblingly Love
I’m a complete sucker for brother-and-sister moments between Mitchell  and Claire, and their secret meeting under the table was sweet,  believable and productive. The surrogate storyline was a little choppy  — especially in its pacing — but the drunken dinner conversation  highlighted how comically talented Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell (watching his  face throughout this scene was amazing), Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric  Stonestreet are.

District Modern Family
Tributes: Manny Delgado, Haley Dunphy Special Skills: Manny’s got the brains of a 50-year-old poet,  which may fool his fellow Tributes into thinking that he’s fragile.  Haley’s got her competitors beat in the looks department. Lucky for  them, Jay will have trained them both in scavenging for food and  camouflage before they leave California.Sponsor Gifts: Mistaking “weapons” for “lemons,” Gloria  accidentally orders Manny several crates of the citrus fruit from  Colombia. Phil, meanwhile, drops down some intense power-walking gear  for his daughter.Forecasted Gameplay: Although Manny is a moving target for  masculinity-obsessed Careers, he’ll become a Rue to another player’s  Katniss… but in the end, it won’t be enough. Haley, meanwhile, is too  gorgeous and dumb for anyone to consider her a threat, and there’s a  chance that the inner Claire in her will come out to wreak havoc. As  long as she doesn’t accidentally eat something obviously poisonous, she  might be all right.

Bailey below the Belt Bailey (David Cross’s character) may not have a whole lot more to him  than being a likable public figure who is obsessed with dogs, but it  worked fine in “Little Bo Bleep,” and not just because it revealed that  the only real thing he’s done during his time in office is allowing  private parties to have more than eight pups (though that little fact  did allow for Luke to say, “Talking dogs? I’m skeptical.”) What I really  loved about Bailey is that he brought up Phil’s unfortunate Valentine’s  Day exposure from Season 2’s “Bixby’s Back,” which grounded the show in  a certain reality that it sometimes lacks. In case you’re wondering:  Yes, “Public Access Pervert” is now a real YouTube video. I don’t blame Cam for it being his “new favorite show.”
