I just got done watching “Modern Family,” the “Halloween,” episode. It was actually pretty funny with the costume incidents, all the practical pranks, and watching the family try to scare the heck out of the little kids coming to get candy on trick or treat night.
So, the first costume incident happens within the first 3 minutes of the show. Claire’s Oldest daughter comes out in a sexy cat costume and says “Check it I am a scary black cat!” I thought that was so funny! Then Claire tells her she is saving her from a whole entire day of getting asked by boys if she has a rough tongue. I would have so let her where the costume just so the teen could walk around looking foolish. Then about 10 minutes into the show Hayley comes out in another sexy costume dressed as a nurse and Claire says ” What the hell is that?” and Hayley goes ” You told me to put on an older costume!” That was so hilarious. Then at then end of the show Hayley comes out in another costume dresses as Mother Teresa and says it is her back when she is hot. That really made me laugh.
The second costume incident happens about 5 minutes into the show where Mitchell arrives in the parking lot of his work place in his spider man costume and realizes only two people are wearing costumes and are getting picked on. He panics calls Cam and says ” There are exactly three people in costumes,” and cam tells him not to panic cause there is dry cleaning in the truck on the car. Mitchell ends up putting his business suit over his costume and walks into work with his costume squeaking underneath which was so funny cause he squeaked the whole time he was at work and his boss couldn’t figure out what was squeaking. Then Mitchell keeps getting called into meetings and he wasn’t able to take the squeaking costume underneath his clothing off until after. So when he finally gets the chance to take it the spider man costume off he ends up running into the bathroom rushing to take his costume off and ends up dropping his business clothing into the toilet. Then Mitchell end up calling Cam again from the bathroom and cam tells him to not panic and to think like spider man. So then Mitchell remembers there is one more business suit in the car and climbs out of the window and down the drain pipe at work. He ends up being spotted as he is doing this and gets made fun of by everyone at his work place. I personally think Mitch should have just left the darn costume on underneath his clothing until work was over. At least then he would have only been called a squeak toy instead.
Now on to the hilarious practical pranks of the night. So Claire’s son walks into the kitchen and Claire is chopping veggies and pretend to chop her hand off. Her son says “Mom I know that’s a fake hand!” Then he goes and tries to pick up the hand and it grabs him back and he screams. Then Phil jumps out from underneath the counter and lets go of his son’s hand. It was so funny. All thought I would have put a blood bag somewhere and made it look more real so her son freaked a little more when she went to pretend to chop her hand off.
The other prank I thought was funny is when Phil is outside talking to his neighbor out divorce. His neighbor tells Phil his wife doesn’t love him anymore. Phil tells his neighbor he will be his rock and turns around and gets scared out of his mind because the automatic skeleton in the box he set up was sensed Phil and popped up and screamed which made Phil scream right as he was saying how he was going to be his neighbors rock.
Oh, yeah before I forget another scene in the show that was so funny was Jay making fun of the way Gloria says certain things. The best seen is when Jay asks her is she ordered his boxes of baby cheeses, but Jay ends up getting a box of little Jesus babies instead. I could not stop laughing. Cheeses and Jesus does sound a like and when Gloria says cheeses it really does sound like Jesus.
Then at the end of the show Claire was trying to get everyone in their costumes so they could be ready to scare the kids that are trick or treating. However, no one wants to dress up or be scary or say the things they are suppose to say and Claire’s Halloween plans go down the drain. Everyone is bickering. Then Claire gets sad and frustrated and goes outside and all of a sudden her family decides to do what they are suppose to and ends up scaring the kids and Claire becomes happy again.
Anyways, the best way to experience “Modern Family,” is by watching it on your local ABC station. However, you will have to look in the TV guide to see what time it is at. I however watch it on the internet.
