Modern Family 'Career Day' Photos Reveal A Visit From The Tooth Fairy

Haley tooth fairy Modern Family

It's been weeks since we've seen a new episode of Modern Family. The ABC comedy will return for one of the few remaining episodes of Season 4 this Wednesday night, and based on the photos we have to show you, it looks like Lily is about to be paid a visit by a very family looking tooth fairy.

The episode description doesn't give us a whole lot to go on, but it sounds like Mitch and Cam make some kind of "costly mistake," which may explain why Haley is dressed up like a tooth fairy…

MODERN FAMILY - "Career Day" - Phil is jazzed to share the wonders of residential real estate with Luke and Manny's classmates for career day, but unfortunately for Phil, his nemesis, Gil Thorpe, shows up and things get ugly. Meanwhile, Gloria challenges Jay's claims of always wanting to become a novelist, forcing Jay to take some shameful measures, and Mitch and Cam make a costly mistake while executing tooth fairy duties, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, MAY 1 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Another one of the photos gives us a better clue as to what this "costly" mistake involves.

Lily Modern Family

So here's what I'm guessing. Lily loses her first tooth and Cam and Mitch, thrilled to get to partake in the traditional tooth fairy custom, accidentally slip a crisp $100 bill under their daughter's pillow. I can't be positive that's the amount of the bill she received, but it looks possible. Of course, Lily would be thrilled to receive so much money (and resistant to handing it over to her parents), so Cam and Mitch enlist Haley's help to play the role of the tooth fairy and try to sweet-talk the girl into giving the hundred dollars back. That's just my guess, based on the photos, more of which you can view below. We'll have to wait and see how it actually plays out when "Career Day" airs this Wednesday night.
