10 Best One-Liners and Conversations from Modern Family

Modern Family orbits around three different types of families, Nuclear family, step family and same-sex family who live in California. This is a series of how these families deal with their kids, spouses and with each other in a crazy manner. Here are some of the best liners and conversations from Modern Family.

1) Phil: “I’m a cool dad, that’s my thang. I’m hip, I surf the web, I text. LOL: laugh out loud, OMG: oh my god, WTF: why the face.”


2) Mitchell: “I haven’t felt this judged since I forgot my canvas bags at Whole Foods.”


3) Cameron: “I will scrub this place like a crime scene…which it is, because you have murdered joy.”



4) Phil: Well, there’s book smart and then there’s street smart.
Claire: Yeah, and then there’s Luke.
Phil: Oh, he’s just, he’s just curious, that’s all. He’s got this, almost, scientific mind with a thirst for knowledge. He’s like this little Einstein. Some people ask “Why?” Luke asks, “Why not?”
Claire: I ask why a lot.


5) Gloria: “OK, Manny, remember, as soon as you land (in Colombia), watch out for Malaria.”
Manny: “Why? I got a shot for that.”
Gloria: “I’m talking about your cousin Malaria. She’s coming to pick you up, but she might have Rubella.”
Manny: “What?”
Gloria: “That’s her daughter, but make room in the car because she could have Diptheria.
Manny: “Who’s Diptheria?”
Gloria: “Manny, diphtheria is a disease! That’s why I want you to be apart from her in the car!”
