What a great idea for an episode, just having everyone get drunk and make terrible decisions. The Modern Family crew was in full form this week as it was drunkenly decided that Claire would carry Cam’s baby, therefore making a child that would have a little bit of both Mitch and Cam in its genes.

The build up to this had very little to do with what was to come. Phil had to sell a house to a couple who are friends with Cam and Mitch, while Claire accidentally left all the kids at home only to find that they did not destroy everything. Neither of these were particularly funny but served their purpose to get to the meat of this episode.

After the house was sold, Cam, Mitch, Phil, and Claire went out to celebrate. The way this sequence was edited with Phil’s hungover clips from the following morning was brilliant. I also liked how their sentences were finished by each other during the dinner conversations. The entire scene was incredibly well-written and made for one of the funniest scenes in the show’s history.

Over at Jay and Gloria’s, Manny finally completed his penny collections during a football game, resulting in an injury. The fact that Manny was driving around on a scooter was hilarious, only made more so by his inability to drive it.

The conclusion of this episode was pretty great too as Jay and Gloria reacted to the news that didn’t sound too good to everyone while sober. Of course Claire is not having Cam’s baby, but the ride was one of the best of the season. Aunt Mommy is a classic. (9.5/10)

    I didn’t think it was a classic but certainly one of the best episodes of the so far inconsistent third season, I’d probably tie it with Little Bo Bleep (for the debate storyline).
