Tonight’s episode of Modern Family hits a sensitive subject for Phil. If you’ve seen the promos, there’s a good chance you already know what’s ahead. If not, maybe the title will give it away. The clip we have to show you doesn’t address that story, but it does show how well Jay and Gloria know each other.
The issue of the title is addressed in ABC’s official episode description, though it doesn’t go into the details. So only a mild spoiler warning ahead...
"Virgin Territory" - It's a day of disturbing realizations when Mitchell manages to ruin one of Jay's proudest golf moments, Phil overhears something that may forever change how he sees his little girl, and Gloria stumbles upon Claire's dangerous little secret, on Modern Family, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
The episode will feature Ernie Hudson (a.k.a Winston from Ghostbusters among other roles), CSI’s Marc Vann, and Huff’s Jack Laufer. The clip below features none of those people, but it does have Jay interpreting Gloria’s sign language, which is typically adorable.
I love the topic of unreturned borrowed items among family being addressed in this show. It’s such a great, common, sort of mundane issue that this series can make something funny out of.
As for the big moment related to the episode title, watch this clip and see how things turn majorly awkward (and likely, horrifying for Phil) in the car when Alex misunderstands a comment her father makes about Haley’s “aversion” to the food court.
And this... can't be good.
