No show does farce better than Modern Family and the latest episode was the best so far this season.
Claire (Julie Bowen) reluctantly let Phil (Ty Burrell) take care of the Thanksgiving dinner preparations but secretly had her own turkey cooking in the garage anticipating that he would fail. Meanwhile Jay (Ed O’Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) pretended to go on holiday after their trip was cancelled at the last minute.
Elsewhere in the episode Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) forced Cam (Eric Stonestreet) to play bad cop after Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) refused to wear a dress to dinner.
The next episode of the season is Strangers in the Night. Mitch reluctantly lets a distressed colleague stay over, and Jay hits a Manny-shaped obstacle while trying to avoid attending a party.
