Alex, Haley, and Luke tried to bring their parents breakfast in bed on Phil and Claire’s anniversary and accidently walked in on their parents having sex. The three kids wanted to escape, not talk about it, and just forget about the whole thing. But, of course, Phil and Claire wanted to talk to them about it and make sure they were ok. Phil even had a few jokes prepared for the occasion. In the end, the kids got Phil and Claire a lock for their bedroom door as a gift. Unfortunately, the gift made a loud clicking sound when locked, and the kids were alerted to when their parents needed to lock the door.
Gloria and Jay jokingly typed up an email to Claire about how controlling Claire is when she is planning events. They accidently sent it to Claire and had to drive over to the Dunphy home to take care of the situation. There was a sitcom-y misunderstanding where Jay and Gloria thought Claire was upset about the email when she was really upset about the sex thing. The conversation got unintentionally dirty on Gloria’s part, and that was pretty funny. Gloria realized that Claire hadn’t checked her email yet, and Gloria managed to get to Claire’s computer and delete the email.
Mitchell and Cameron wanted to get a reservation at a popular new restaurant, so they set up a play-date with the woman who owned it. While Lily and the woman’s son played, Mitchell and Cameron chatted with the restaurant owner. It seemed that they were going to get what they wanted when the woman got a call, yelled at the person on the phone, and then had to leave to take care of something at the restaurant. Cam spilled some strawberry juice on the woman’s expensive rug. When she got back, Mitchell freaked and blamed her son. The woman started yelling that her preschooler was allergic to strawberry and was about to stick him when our “heroes” fessed up. Needless to say, they did not get their reservation.
We liked the Dunphy’s situation this week, the kids’ reactions, and the way the parents handled it. That plotline made the episode good. We were less crazy about the Gloria misunderstanding, and Mitchell and Cam have seen funnier plots. There were LOTS of good lines though. It was also sweet how the kids stopped to think that it was great that their parents were still having sex and not divorced like their peers' parents. That's true, kids. Your parents are dorks, but they love each other.
