It’s Jay’s 65th birthday, and Gloria hasn’t yet told him about the pregnancy. She tells Manny though, and Manny is worried that he’ll have to do all the work. After all, he “self-potty trained.” "I just did not get the appeal of intentionally soiling one's pants. That said, I will admit to missing the kisses on my tummy." Great joke there. Luke further scares Manny by telling Manny that Phil will love the baby more. That was a little too mean to be funny.
Cam and Mitchell are sad about losing the baby, but Lily takes the opportunity to guilt them into buying her a kitten named Larry. At first, Mitchell doesn’t think Cam should fill their child-sized heart holes with a cat. Um, Ern has a child-shaped hole in her heart, and she’s filled it with this. The stuffed animals humping mixed with Cam’s speech was hilarious. We’re glad there can still be jokes after the disappointing news in the finale.
Haley is hungover after prom, and Claire makes her a “hangover cure.” Ha, loved that. The only scientifically backed hangover cure we’ve ever heard of is a bacon and cheese sandwich. Trust us and suffer no more. Jay has a touching, enthusiastic response to Gloria’s news. Luke says, “Oh, gross, I didn't know Grandpa could still do it." Phil replies, "Don't be disrespectful, Luke. Anyone could do it with Gloria." HAHAHA. We liked the time jump (and hope the show continues from there), but we agree with Claire about the beard. Some guys can pull those off well. We don’t think Phil is one of them. We weren’t digging the spinning camera. It’s time for a new Lily, show. This one is not cute.
