The episode that won the latter category was Season 2, Episode 13: “Caught In the Act,” which was written by co-creators Steven Levitan and Jeffrey Richman. This is the same episode that won the 2011 Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, so we already know how much the industry adores it.
To capitalize on this episode’s obvious success, maybe there should be a sequel where Stella the Dog accidentally sees Jay (Ed O’Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) in the act. Naturally, Jay would be terribly worried about the emotional trauma for Stella, and hilarity would ensue.
We hope the genius MF writers are listening!
