On tonight’s episode, Phil tricks Luke into taking a dance class, but the joke’s on him when the white lie indirectly lands him in the slammer. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria are throwing birthday parties for both Manny and Joe and are concerned Manny might be going for girls out of his league and Mitch and Cam get a rude awakening in the cutthroat world of booking a wedding venue.

ABC’s synopsis of the show reads: “The series is based on a Dutch filmmaker who records the lives of three families, including one he stayed with as an exchange student. In one household, the dad works and the mom stays at home with their kids; in another, a gay couple experiences first-time fatherhood with the Vietnamese child they just adopted; and in the third home a 60-year-old man becomes an instant father when he marries a thirtysomething Latina mother. Shot documentary-style, ‘Modern Family’ won six Emmy Awards, including one for Outstanding Comedy Series.
