Tonight marks the premiere of “Modern Family” on FOX43, weeknights at 7:00pm and 7:30pm. The show began in 2009, featuring another old FOX favorite, Ed O’Neill as family patriarch Jay. To celebrate the show’s arrival on FOX43, here’s some of our favorite “Modern Family” quotes.
Phil: “I’m hip. I surf the Web. I text. LOL: ‘Laugh Out Loud.’ OMG: ‘Oh My God.’ WTF: ‘Why The Face?’”
Alex: “So dumb guys go for dumb girls and smart guys go for dumb girls. What do the smart girls get?”
Phil: “Cats, mostly.”
Cameron: “Yes, I gained a few extra pounds while we were expecting the baby. But that’s science. You can’t fight it.”
Gloria: “In my culture, mothers are very clingy to their sons. In fact, the leading cause of death among Colombian women is when their sons get married.”
Haley: “Why are you guys yelling at us? We were way upstairs. Just text me.”
Cameron: “There’s a fish in nature that swims around with babies in its mouth. That fish would look at Mitchell’s relationship with his mother and say, “that’s messed up.”
Gloria, regarding Claire: “I don’t want to be around when something that tight unravels.”
