“Modern Family” celebrates Mother’s Day on Wednesday (May 4) by teaching an important lesson: The day may be best enjoyed without the kids.
That, anyway, is what we’re taking away from the first clip below, in which Claire (Julie Bowen) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) try to enjoy a Mother’s Day hike. One problem: They bring the kids along, and Luke (Nolan Gould) and Manny (Rico Rodriguez) kind of hijack the experience.
Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), meanwhile, have their own issue brought on by a seemingly loving gesture. Mitchell makes breakfast in bed for Cam … which Cam then interprets as Mitchell thinking of him as the woman in their relationship. And which, it turns out, might not be just another instance of Cam blowing things out of proportion.
Also, there’s a shot of Lily at the end of the scene that uses the toddler’s impassive expression to perfection. “Modern Family” airs at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday on ABC.
