Modern Family Season 2 Recap: Dunphys Unplugged
Modern Family Season 2 returned last night and here is a quick recap on the Dunphys ‘Unplugged.’
The hit television show Modern Family returned last night on ABC and brought more laughs than you could handle. For the Modern Family Season 2 episode entitled Unplugged we threw away technology for one evening.
Claire (Julie Bowen) is frustrated with her family, as they all seem attached to their technological devices (cellphones, laptops, video games). In order to take care of the problem, Claire lets the Dunphy family know that there will be no technology for one week! Of course, being the awesome dad that he is, Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) makes it into a contest. Whoever is the last person standing in the Dunphys ‘Unplugged’ challenge will receive an award. Luke (Nolan Gould) wants a chicken potpie, Haley (Sarah Hyland) wants a new car and Alex (Ariel Winter) wants a brand new laptop. Let the games begin as the Dunphy clan learns just how hard it is to go without technology.
For Jay (Ed O’Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara), there is a pesky problem brewing with the neighbor’s dog. Gloria, Manny and Jay all go over to confront the neighbor about his dog that does not quit barking. The next day, the neighbor comes over furious because his dog is missing! Of course, Manny and Jay think that Gloria murdered the dog so they do some investigation. The story of the rat decapitation that Jay tells us is just hilarious. He paints Sofia out to be this cold-blooded killer since she is from Columbia. Hands down, the hottest killer I have ever ran across.
Meanwhile on the homefront of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) lies quite the dilemma. The two parents struggle to get Lily into the best preschool there is. It’s “the Harvard” of preschools and when it comes time for the interview, Cam blows it. At this point in last nights Modern Family Season 2 episode, I almost peed myself from laughing so hard. Cam pretends that he is some Indian while they are in the interview and it was funny as hell. I did learn one thing from last night’s episode, Corn is also known as Maize!!
We end the Unplugged episode back at the Dunphy’s house. At this point, Claire, Alex and Luke are all disqualified because they used some form of technology. On the verge of breaking, Phil hears Haley up stairs talking on a cell phone. Claire and Phil are delighted that Haley has lost the competition. Phil immediately jumps on the laptop to check his fantasy football team. However, Haley let’s them know that the cellphone was a fake! She carved a cellphone out of soap and colored it in with a sharpie! Haley really wanted a new car and actually used her brain to outsmart her parents. The question now is: Will Claire and Phil buy Haley a new car?
You can catch Modern Family Season 2 when it returns next Wednesday night at 9|8c on ABC.
