Everyone was acting like children last night on Modern Family and Cougar Town—car races, BB gun battles, flash mobs, skunk warfare and, of course, Cobbstopping.
Here are the best moments from each episode:
Season 2, Episode 8: "Manny Get Your Gun"
Before the family converges to celebrate Manny's birthday, the Pritchetts try to hurry along the non-Pritchetts: Claire and Phil divide the kids for a road race, Jay bemoans Gloria's key misplacement and Mitchell becomes frustrated with Cam's easy-going (and slow) ways. All the while, Manny tries to live out a childhood he realizes he never had.
"You'd think growing up in a place full of death squads and drunken uncles she'd learn to move a little bit faster." - Jay, who shouldn't have bought Gloria such a big watch.(It's Okay to Watch a Show Called) Cougar Town
"If you ain't White, you ain't right" - Phil, who predicts total White (Team) domination over Claire's Team Blue-ser in Color Wars at Family Camp next year.
"No, swerving into a curb and popping your tire loses races." - Haley, who can't help but cry if Phil starts to cry.
"Oh, and you're this close of doing all the sleeping in a tent in the backyard." - Gloria, who could unbutton Manny's shirt with a BB gun if she wanted to.
"You cheated on me with choreography, and that's the worst kind... YOU DANCED WITHOUT ME, MITCHELL!" - Cam, who is probably very upset that Chad from Accounting (who Mitchell "wrongly" assumed was gay) didn't invite him to participate.
And I have to mention two of the most hilarious sequences in the series' history—the crying scene in the car and the flash mob at the mall. Brilliant. Hilarious. Perfect.
Season 2, Episode 8: "Little Girl Blues"
Jules goes certifiably insane when Travis brings home a girlfriend (Kirsten, not Kristen) from college and Grayson can't figure out how to get the Cul de Sac Crew out of his house.
"How would you guys rate that on the Creep-O-Meter? About infinity?" - Grayson, who only shaves his legs so he can swim faster.What did you think of last night's episodes? Does Cam have every right to be upset about Mitchell's "indiscrections"? Do you have an urge to mix different kinds of soda into one delicious drink? And do you prefer Laurie's imaginary opera gloves from earlier in the season or Grayson's imaginary clown nose from last night?
"If you're headed in a sexy direction, you better use contraception, 'cause babies destroy your dreams!" - The Guys singing a song by Jules, who drinks wine while brushing her teeth.
"Poppy, the transexual at the make-up counter I frequent, would beg to differ." - Laurie, who dated her foster brother (but it's okay because they were 10 and he moved back to Romania before they did anything serious....).
"What's up, Numbah Two? How's my dust taste?! [motorcycle noises]" - Laurie the Cobbstopper, a sexy townie ho.
"I think I actually read that tip in Ted Bundy's biography. Thanks for the horrible advice, but I have to get back to my jog now." - Travis, who is suffering from serious RPA (Repeat Performance Anxiety) but at least doesn't get a chilly tush like Grayson.
