Thanksgiving is all about spending time with your relatives, and there’s no family we’d rather binge-eat pumpkin pie with than the Dunphys and the Pritchetts!
Check out five things we’re thankful for on Modern Family — aside from the obvious: It’s the LOLercoaster ride of 2011!
1. Gloria's Assets
Have you ever wondered why a quirky and off-beat show like Modern Family gained an audience so quickly? Four words: Gloria’s lovely lady lumps. This voluptuous Colombian beauty puts the “yum” in dayum!
From her dangerous curves to her cascading hair, the men just aren’t safe! Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without a toast to the hottest MILF in Tinsel Town — here’s to hoping the Modern Fam head back to Hawaii so we can see Gloria work it out in a string bikini!
2. Cam and Mitchell's Snarky Relationship!
It’s always hard to pick a favorite Modern Family couple when they’re all so picture-perfect, but Cam and Mitchell are stealing the spotlight! Who wouldn’t fall in love with a couple who have a giant portrait of themselves as angels in their daughter’s bedroom?
These two love bugs are television’s sassiest and most fabulous (sassabulous, anyone?) duo on television. Thanksgiving would be so much more fun if Cameron was here to watch Food Network with us, but we’ll make do with friend to the gays, Ina Garten.
3. The New Baby Lily
When the “new” Baby Lily first toddled on screen, we had our reservations. Who was this lanky impostor, and what did she do with old Lily?
Turns out Lily 2.0 is just as cute as the original, and bonus! She can talk! Kind of ....
Unfortunately, New Lily’s been absent for the last few episodes — possibly due to the old Lily plotting her revenge — but come one, come all and raise your Shirley Temples to this cute new kid on the block!
4. Manny's Mannerisms
If it weren’t for Manny, we would never have broken out the poncho that our hippie uncle left at our house last Thanksgiving.
Truthfully, Manny inspires our most fashionable moments — we’ll never forget the time he brought Shakespearean blouses back in style.
Not only does Manny look the part of a dashing gentleman, his forays into poetry have us swooning. If only we were Manny’s type (a pre-pubescent teenage girl) — we’d give anything to hear him serenade us at the mall!
5. Phil ''Cool Dad'' Dunphy
Things more delicious than a turkey? Watching Phil in a man-tank massaging Jay with essential oils warmed in his underwear.
And that’s just the beginning. Also more delicious than a turkey? Watching Phil sprawled out naked on a bed with a bottle of champagne covering his danger zone.
If Phil didn’t pop up into our lives every Wednesday night, we would boycott Thanksgiving completely and celebrate Festivus instead.
