This week, the wacky crew commonly known as our favorite Modern Family was even more hilarious than usual. Don’t believe us? Check out the top ten quotes from Season 3, Episode 12: “Egg Drop.” How can you go wrong with people slipping on broken egg yolk? It’s Humor 101!

 

10. Phil (Ty Burrell) explains the details of his presentation: “It’s the most important question because it launches me into my big finish. That way people will leave excited.”

Haley (Sarah Hyland): “Oh, I think people will be excited to leave.”

Can we get #poorphil trending?

9. Alex (Ariel Winter) refers to her science project: “I think it has applications for unmanned space flight.”

Haley: “Keep talking like that and you’ll go through life unmanned.”
Haley really brought the zingers this week.

8. Manny (Rico Rodriguez) ponders life: “Arent we all just fragile eggs hiding behind bubble wrap and bravado?”

Answer: Yes.

7. Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) on his sister: “Claire is the son that my dad never had.”

Which makes Mitch the daughter he never had.

6. Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) explains the process of finding a birth mom: “Kinda like your first date.”

Mitchell: “Actually, it’s the opposite of a first date. You don’t want to have sex, but you do want a baby.”
It’s called immaculate conception, guys.

5. Cam brags about his inner songstress: “You’re preaching to the choir. Literally, I’ve sung in several.”
When he wasn’t too busy winning fishing awards, of course.

4. Cam convinces Mitchell to get on board the baby train: “We are not only adopting a baby, we are saving it from a life spent searching for East Dakota.”
Wait...someone pass us a map.

3. Gloria (Sofia Vergara) tries to hail a cab: “You see, they don’t stop because I am Latina.”

Haley: “Or because that was just a yellow car.”
Frankly, we’re shocked that anyone wouldn’t stop for Gloria.

2. Alex gives her mom advice: “First get a mirror. Then you’re going to look in it and you’re going to see a crazy woman. She needs your help.”
Help making an egg-holder, that is.

1. Cam reflects on his interview: “What I took away from this experience is I can sing.”
Mitchell: “And what we didn’t take away from the experience is a baby because she decided to keep it.”
That’s what happens when Cam flexes his vocal chords. It’s a beautiful thing.

Catch the next new episode of Modern Family on Wednesday, January 18 at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC.
